I love a good exfoliant and this one is amazing! It can be very rough so if you aren't a fan of abrasive exfoliants then you might now like this.

I have been using St Ives scrub for over a year and love the way it makes my skin feel. It controls blackheads as well as the higher priced brands

I used to use this face scrub, but it was too harsh on my skin. The exfoliation is too rough and drying to the skin, but it was ok for weekly use.

This product is really aggressive but I love the way it completely removes all the dead skin. This has been the only exfoliator that worked for me.

Smells great but harsh on the skin. does help with acne but no men have reviewed it. The cost is pretty good, and it is not a hard product to find.

This scrub is very gritty, if you want to FEEL like your getting really clean this is for you. If you have sensitive skin i wouldn't recommend it.
