This is my favorite face wash, it is rough enough so you feel like its really scrubbing your face skin and getting rid of the dead skin. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth and has a great smell.

This smells amazing and clean very well. I did like the way it made my face feel after I had washed it. The only downside was it's a little rough on sensitive skin.

This is probably one of the best black head scrubs I've used. But it doesn't (in my opinion) prevent black heads.. it just helps get rid of them once they're on my face.

I tried St. Ives about a couple of weeks ago. I like the way St. Ives feels and the apricot smell, but it did not really help me with blackheads. I waited it out to see maybe it would improve as time goes on but no such luck.

This is a great product for its price. I used it once when I saw searching for a facial scrub. But as all facial scrubs, do not over use or you'll over scrub your face.

St Ives is my all time favorite face scrub. It's creamy and at the same time rough enough to get rid of dead skin and blackheads. The results are fresh clear soft skin.

I really like this product but my skin is sensitive and it has way to many beads which is to harsh on my skin, I find this product to work better if I also add a little soap with it to cut down on the harsh beads it has in it

The scrubs smells good to me, I love the smell. However I do agree with some of the other comments. It is too abrasive for my skin. It's way to harsh. I wouldn't recommend it for everyday use.

I have used this product since i was 13 yrs old. It is one of those products in my regimen that has never changed. Cheap but very effective exfoliator! I would not recommend using it everyday because it can dry out your skin

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