This is the only face product that keeps my daughter from breaking out. It is affordable and easy to apply. It doesn't sting the eyes. It leaves the skin feeling soft, silky, and clean.

I LOVE THIS STUFF! Great drugstore scrub for a great price. Definitely worth checking out if you have dry skin and want to just scrub all of those pesky flakes off!

Really good at getting rid of acne fast. It isn't that expensive and it is definitely worth it. It leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth and is especially good with big pimples or zits

I use this stuff everyday, and its a really great product. I have sensitive skin and I'm still able to use it because it's so gentle. And out makes my face feel very clean, but not dry.

An amazing, extremely abrasive scrub that keeps gunk out of pores. However, definitely not for sensitive skin or skin prone to redness, as it will cause breakouts.

I love this scrub. It was the first product I tried from St. Ives. The apricot smell is too die for. I also love that it's abrasive but not too rough on the skin.
