I love this product. I've used it all over my body. The fragrance is nice and light as well. Comes in a nice container, with an easy to screw on lid.

I have really sensitive skin and it caused the skin around my nose to breakout. So I cant use it but it does smell good also works great for my sister.

This is my daily face scrub, my holy grail product. It purifies my skin and smells delicious. It's an exfoliant, but it's gentle enough for daily use.

I use this product on my face 2-3 times a week. I really like the way my skin feels when I am finished. Have tried others and I like this one the best.

I got this in my VoxBox to review, and it smells much nicer than the average blemish scrub! It also seems to work well enough so I would recommend it.

My favorite scrub! I have been using this as long as I can remember. Bonus, St Ives sells a travel size which is great for on the road or party favors
