It is very good scrub, it smells delicious and it frees my skin of oil, it feels super clean and fresh. The only thing I do not like is that the exfoliator is a little aggressive, and my skin is delicate, I have many acne marks and I always look for a lighter exfoliator. But the product is very good.

I picked this up on a whim and out of sheer desperation to get my acne under control. I will not claim this got rid of my acne but using it twice a week really gave my skin a deeper but gentle cleanse. I would definitely repurchase and think it’s a great product at a wonderful value!!

I been looking for a face scrub that will do what it says is suppose to do. I believe I found it!! I have been using St. Ives scrub for 2-3 weeks now. Is part of my night routine. And I already see a difference. My blackheads on my nose area are gone and the pores are less visible. I have tried other products that cost more and it didn’t even work. I definitely recommend this product.

So I personally do enjoy this product but is NOT for everyday use nor for everyone. I use it about once every two weeks because it is super abrasive also if you have dry skin or are prone to dry skin I don’t recommend trying this product but if you have oily skin it’s good to use on occasion

I have been using this for years and love it! I got my boyfriend to start using it too! Whenever I feel the need for a strong exfoliator, I always reach for this. It works really well and smells great. It's also not so abrasive that you can't use it every day, although I typically alternate between this and another face wash.
