I love St. Ives but this product is okay. I love how it softens my skin and brightens it but it doesn't do anything for my blemishes or black heads.

This product is my life saver. I've suffered from acne for years. This cleared it up in a month. It's my holy grail. The price makes it even better.

I love this scrub! I have sensitive skin, and it is gentle enough to use daily, while exfoliating and leaving my skin not only clean, but also soft.

This stuff really gets the dead skin off, but it can be a bit harsh (like constantly rubbing sand paper on your face) if you use too much/too often.

The smell is SOOOOOO good but it's REALLY harsh and drying, filled with chemicals and can very quickly lead to dry skin if you have combination skin.
