I have been using this scrub since high school and I love it! It makes my face feel clean and gets all of the dirt and grime off my face. It is such a great product!

St. Ives is a great exfoliant. I use it on my face about once a week. It also works great on my legs and underarms, allowing me to have a smooth shave and silky skin.
Absolutely love! My skin feels just as smooth as using some higher end products for wayyyy less. The only thing that has worked better for me is a homemade simple sugar and olive oil scrub

I use it about once a week and it really help to keep my skin smooth! I use it on my face every time, and every once and a while on dry spots such as elbows or arms.

When I feel like my face is in need of a deep clean, I use this. I bought the big tub of it and it always helps me get all the dirt or makeup that may be in my pores.

I feel like I broke out more while using this product :( I got more oily on my t-zone area too. This felt pretty harsh on my sensitive skin which kinda irritated it.

The exfoliants in this product are very rough and can irritate (or even damage) sensitive skin. You can feel the product working and exfoliating, but it is too rough!
