A good product, its not too rough but make sure you don't purchase the one labeled as "invigorating" because that one feels like its scratching your face off.

Must have! I always have an extra on hand. I use this morning and night. Doesnt dry out my face and feels great on my skin. The small travel size is perfect, I keep it in my desk at work for those long days. It smells amazing and feels great. Its a great buy!

I really wanted this to work but it just made my skin irritated and break out more! I do have very sensitive skin. It didn't get rid of my blackheads either.

I love the St. Ives exfoliating scrub. It smells good and leaves my skin really soft. I wouldn't use this daily though especially if you have sensitive skin.

Cheap yet effective scrub. Can be used on face and body if desired. Nice scent. Rinsed easily. Not too abrasive. I wouldn't use daily however, maybe 2-3x/week

Smells good, not over powering and the scrub isn't too rough. Keeps my face smooth and clear. Doesn't consume too much of your time and its simple and quick!

Great refreshing feeling. Does not dry my skin out at all. Usually the better priced of the products in the shelf. My teenage daughter enjoys using it as well.

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