This is an excellent every day product. I haven't found that it is too tough on my skin or dries it out too much. It smells great, always leaves my skin soft and is a great product for the price!

I thought i would not like this when i first used it. I have sensitive skin, so the kernel scrub felt quite abraisive. After I washed it off though, my face was so soft and it smells very good too.

I love the way this scrub leaves my skin feeling- super smooth and soft! The beads in this feel really great against the skin. I have no complaints for the scrub because even the smell is amazing!

This is my favorite face wash. It cleans your skin so well and you leave the shower feeling refreshed. Doesn't dry your skin out. I have oily skin but this works wonders!

I've heard so many things about this scrub, but just recently bought it for myself. I like how it's kept my skin clear, but some times it is a little too rough on my skin and really dries it out.

This face scrub is okay. It is great for sensitive skin, smells great and my face does feel somewhat smoothr after use. I do not feel like it is as great as treating acne as other products however.

This is a everyday use for me and my boyfriend he used to never wash his face until he started seeing me use it now there isn't a day he goes without washing his face I like the smell of this also

Love this! Smells great and leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean, smooth, and unbelievably soft after. But this also does feel more harsh on the skin compared to some of the other St. Ives' scrubs.

I love this scrub . I use it twice a week. It's a little drying and needs moisturizer afterwards. I like that the scrub particles are not harsh and tiny so that they don't interfere with my pores

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