You may think that since this product is cheap it doesn't work but that is just the opposite. The product is the perfect exfoliate. It can be deep or mild depending on how are you scrub.

I really liked this product. It is a great exfoliate and made me skin feel very clean and smooth. It did not do much for my acne though.

Cleans my face, not to harsh, and it smells great! St Ives even has different types of scrubs depending on your skin's sensitivity level.
