Pretty good. Controlled my oily skin & did remove scars I had. It's affordable for everyone. Bought it at Walmart. I used it for a while, but ended up switching to something else. I wish they helped with oily skin more

I got this product at the grocery store and I wasn't expecting too much. About a week after I started using it, I noticed that was skin was starting to clear up and it was super soft. I love everything about this product!

My favorite facial scrub. gentle enough while still getting the job done. nice oil free feel. washes off well and feels smooth immediately. definitely helpful in fighting acne and i think it has even lightened my scars!

I love this product. Exfoliates skin well, and doesn't dry out my skin. I also like the actual St. Ives brand better than the knock off brand from Walmart or Target.

The first several times I used this product I really liked it. My skin felt really smooth and nice. The longer I used it, the less effective it seemed to be. Also seemed to dry my face out. Will probably not buy again.

I Like to use this at least once a week and my skin feels soft and refreshed. i like to put it on as a mask first for a couple minutes and then scrub gently as i wash it off and i feel like it really helps with blackheads

I have naturally dry skin. Often exfoliates / scrubs dry my skin out more, but St Ives always leaves my skin feeling soft and replenished. For the price, there is nothing better out there!
