I love this product... makes my skin smooth... It is very inexpensive and if you buy the container rather than the tube it will be a little more cheaper :)

It's a great scrub for your face! It leaves your face smooth and clean after your first wash. Don't use it everyday, for a better result used twice a week!

I liked this product, it seemed to work and it smelled really good. It broke me out really badly though. I cant use any St. Ives products because of this.

This product is my go to when on a budget. Like the smell and how good it exfoliates my skin. Use gentle motions when exfoliating and a couple days a week.

I received a sample of this in my Campus VoxBox. I love the scent and the way my skin feels afterwards. It does not leave me dry, which normally scrubs do.
