I use this daily. Its an amazing facial scrub. I tried the store version of was .50 cheaper but st Ives is worth the extra money.

Great scrub that is satisfying to use. No real scent: I would have preferred a fruity apricot scent, but others may appreciate its neutral scent.

This scrub is so perfect it's not to abrasive or drying. I have tried a million other face scrubs but I always just come right back to this one.

I do like this product but it can be harsh on my dry skin. I will use only once a week to maintain. Rinsed clean and skin feels refreshed after.

I love this facial scrub. It's very Inexpensive and it does a great job at helping to remove dead or dry skin from my face. It also smells good.

I love this product; obviously it is not meant for every day use but once or twice a week it exfoliates and leaves your skin feeling invigorated.

This is my number one choice for facial wash.. I love the little scrubby beads in the wash, it makes me feel like I'm actually cleaning my face.

This product works really well. Not only does it thoroughly clean you face but it also exfoliates to leave behind soft, smooth skin to show off!

I have always had problems with occasional pimples. This product seems to help minimize it. It also doesn't aggravate my skin like some cleaners.
