I have used this scrub for years! This is always in my bathroom. Not too harsh on delicate faces. Makes my skin feel soft and smooth!

This stuff smells good an really gets your dead skin off. It’s definitely something you don’t wanna use everyday because it’s so abrasive on the skin but besides that this stuff is awesome for the price!

Great smell but that’s about it. This product caused a really bad breakout with my skin and also left it feeling dry and irritated. ( same thing happened with my sister )

Not only does this moisturizer my skin, it helps fight acne and also is great for scrubbing off dead skin that I get in the fall/winter. I use it about 2-3 times a week and I’ve never had healthier skin. I don’t get many breakouts but when I do this helps tame them.

I really enjoy St.Ives products a lot. I’ve been using them for years and never had a bad experience. The scrub isn’t rough on my skin at all and I do believe it does help with my acne a bit. Its extremely affordable as well. They have different products, my faves include this one as well as the green tea black head clearing.

Love this product in terms of an exfoliant, but I haven't used it long enough to see how much it helps my acne. Definitely leaves my face feeling like I rubbed it a little raw, which I like from an exfoliant.
