I wanted to like this scrub, but it left my face red and puffy. I don't usually have a problem with scrubs, but this did not work for me at all

I have very oily skin, and struggle to find something that cleanses at a deeper level. This scrub is perfect! I always feel so refreshed after!

St Ives is a pretty basic cleanser. I use it as a secondary cleanser option (I keep it at my boyfriend's house), but I prefer a stronger effect!

I always buy this in the summer, it does a great job exfoliating, I personally need a cleanser most of the days but use this a few times a week.

This scrub isn't too abrasive but when I'm done it leaves my face red. But I don't mind I just feel like it shows where the product was working.
