I love all of their products, especially this one! Scrubs can be so expensive and this is a great cheaper alternative. Cleanses very well and smells great too!

I like the smell of this, and the fact that its a scrub, but i don't care for the brand itself. my skin is too sensitive for this. and it makes my skin breakout

I use this about twice a week and I think it works great. Definitely gets the dead skin off. I don't have to rub hard at all. I have been using this for years.

I tried to cheap out and stop using proactiv and tried to use St.Ives body scrub instead. It did absolutely nothing for my acne. However, it does smell nice :)

I've tried a lot of facial scrubs over the years and I always come back to St. Ives. After using it, my face feels smooth and soft and it smells good too.

This product was really rough on my skin. The beads are too big and it ends up scratching and irritating your face. I did not find that it helped with my acne.

This really does the job. I love it. My skin is smooth. I use it on my arms, too sometimes. It makes my skin feel soft and doesn't take away too much moisture.

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