It is a very good product, although I do wish it hydrated my skin more and exfoliated a little more. It is good for the price and you can usually find everything at the drugstore on sale. I would recommend if you have normal or oily skin for dry skin we need more hydration than this provides. Good product just not really for dry skin!

I live by this product. I have been using it for over a decade. It keeps my face clear. I very rarely have acne. I can either contribute it to this or to genes, But I feel like the two might be working together. It exfoliates. It cleans. It smells great. I hope they never get rid of it.

I love this product. I feel like it really gets deep down in my pores and exfoliates really well. The price is definitely reasonable and I will definitely repurchase this in the near future. I recommend this to someone who is looking to exfoliate without drying out their skin.

I've kept a bottle of this stuff on hand at all times since high school. It's not something I use every day, since my skin doesn't love being exfoliated all the time, but I pull it out when I get the occasional breakout and it helps me kick the zits quick without drying out my skin.

I really recommend this scrub! I think it is very effective. Leaves your face feeling fresh and smooth. Has a harsh texture, but feels nice to scrub gently on face. It also smells very nice. I would highly recommend this product because it does control my acne on my sensitive skin.

This is my favorite for a little exfoliation while combating any breakouts I have. I use this a few times a week to really deep clean my skin and treat breakouts at the same time. I love the scent. It's never too harsh on my sensitive skin

This is my go to scrub I use almost everyday. My faces tends to break out easily if I don't use a gritty scrub a couple times a week and this does the job perfectly leaving my skin baby smooth. The salicylic acid also helps with acne as well

I received this face wash from Influenster and hadn't used st. Ives before then. Turned out really liking it after using it a few times. Not sure I would personally buy it again but only because I have other products I like more. Great scrub for a great price and it smells good too!

Great exfoliate for the face. Helps with oil control. Only face scrub I use weekly. Best use 2-3 times a week. Doesn't dry out the face or leave any residue. I will definitely buy again. I recommend anyone that wants to work on their skin.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
