I use this scrub from time to time. I find it to be fairly drying so I use a facial lotion afterwards but it smells wonderful and really gets all the dirt and makeup off my face.

This is my go to scrub for anytime of the year. I LOVE to use this in the shower up to two times a week. It is the perfect mix of an exfoliant and wash. I would highly recommend this to anyone with acne or not it works wonders for blackheads!

Leaves skin so smooth and clean. Ive used this product for over 10years to help control my oily skin and keep my pores clean. Works well in addition to other lines. Does not dry skin out or leave it feeling tight. the formula is well balanced.

This works ok. Be very gentle because the exfoliating material can be harsh on the skin if scrubbed too roughly. It has in salicylic acid so it should be good for combating acne.

In addition to using this scrub on my face, I use it on my legs before I shave to get them extra smooth and on my bikini area to prevent ingrown hair. It also works wonders on knees, elbows, feet...anywhere you may have a rough patch of skin!

I love this scrub but you do have to be careful because the exfoliating pieces can be a bit harsh. This product dries out my skin but so does almost every other cleanser out there

St. Ives really did a good job with this. My face always feels really smooth after I've used it. I also use it down there to combat ingrown hairs (sorry if TMI.) It helps though.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
