This product works great for my skin type! I have a problem with products often drying out my skin and leaving it to feel dry and rough but this acne face scrub prevents that! I have very sensitive skin so this works well for me but it dose smell like acne medicine but I don't mind that at all. It's kept my face feeling smooth and looking clear!

This stuff is SUPER amazing! It makes my face feel sooooo clean with making it feel like that nasty gross dried out feeling. This DOES help with my breakouts, and it really gets deep into my pores, when using when recommended. My favorite face product

Very effective at exfoliating but still gentle on sensitive acne prone skin, leaves my skin smooth and reduces oil.

I absolutely love all of St. Ives facial products. A great value and a product that lasts for a while. This product does great at clearing up my skin and giving it a natural glow. I am a repeat user because this product really works. I continue to buy again and again.
