I love this facial scrub. It does exactly what it's meant to do without leaving my skin dry. It doesn't have a strong scent like other scrubs either. I love it!

This is one of my favorite scrubs. It smells good, the beads feel like little brushes cleaning your face all the dirt off your face, and it leaves it soo soft!!

I use this every other day to gently exfoliate and can feel a difference in my skin right away. It's affordable compared to other brands and does the job well.

I really used to love this product until i heard how bad it was for your skin. The grainy particles in this product actually cause small scratches on your skin.

Very abrasive product! St Ives is cheap for skin care and I prefer a skin care product that is created for skin not just cheaply made for skin .. ouch ouch ouch
