I love this face wash! The smell and texture is great. It's gritty which I like - makes my face feel clean. I find it works well at preventing breakouts. They recently changed the bottle (it looks great) but the price also went up which I was disappointed to see. It's still reasonable - usually about $5.

I love this face scrub!! I use this whenever I have breakouts. I just scrub it on my face for a couple seconds when I'm in the shower and then wash it away. After a day or two, my breakouts are gone. The new packaging is a nice improvement and I like it better than the old one. It's more appealing.

This product is a classic, I like to use it on the body, what I like most is its creamy texture that does not hurt the skin, leaves the whole body very soft and smells very good, its price is super accessible and easy to find, I recommend it a lot.It is not the best but for its low price it is fine.
St. Ives have helped me a lot with my acne... If i have any acne it will always be my go to product. The packaging is great, it is affordable you would not complain. The product is very effective and you would not be disappointed. Lastly i do recommend the product to anyone suffering with acne

This is my favourite face scrub. It has a great consistency and you really don't need to use much. The exfoliation beads are crushed almond shells and the scent is also fresh. Leaves skin feeling smooth and helps keep spots and black heads at bay.

I have been using this product for at least 8 years now and I will always come back to it. The best part is that I saw results from using this twice a week and it gave my skin the break it needed. The scent is calming and just adds to relaxation of a shower. 
It got rid of all the dirt and nasty dead skin I had on my face and left it feeling smooth as a baby's butt. 
I do recommend this product for people looking for an affordable face scrub. (I also use the green tea one and it's amazing honestly no difference with the products as they both work).

St Ives es una marca de cuidado de la piel que yo he estado utilizando por 10 años, he estudiado su composición y sus efectos a corto y largo plazo, he realizado experimentos con ellos en diferentes personas con tipos de piel variado y realmente es una marca por la cual apostaría ciegamente, su exfoliante aparte de tener un aroma agradable permite remover el maquillaje, células muertas; y es que sus gránulos son firmes pero a la ves delicados impidiendo causar daño a nuestra piel. Al final tenemos un rostro libre de impurezas y radiante. Me encanta.

I’ve been using this product for a couple months now and I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin! It was very dry from the weather and my old clean and clear cleanser and now it feels moisturized and fresh. My acne red spots have reduced and I dont get as many breakouts anymore!

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