This is a decent scrub, not too harsh, not too gentle where it feels like it isn't doing anything. But I never noticed that it cleared my acne or blackheads any. But it still felt nice.

I started using this about two weeks ago and I can honestly say that it really is helping to lessen the blackheads on my cheeks and nose. It smells really good too

I use St.Ives not just for my face, but for my body as well. It is such a great product. The only one I have used and it worked. I like to use it right before shaving, and I have not had any ingrown hairs since then.

A facial scrub should have smaller grains than this to avoid damaging the skin. This is a terrific BODY scrub, however, because the grains do not dissolve. Excellent for use on the legs or anywhere prior to shaving!

I received this in the campus vox box and I love it. Even though I don't have acne its a good product to clean your face with. It leaves your skin soft. It may just be my new face wash.
