Very cost effective product. The product itself feels soothing on the skin and I feel refreshed after washing my face. I was pleasantly surprised with this product. Gentle on the skin and had a nice packaging. If you are on a budget then St. Ives is an economical option.

I have used this product in the past and I liked it but I could not use it every day or every night. It did its job my helping my blemishes out but it also seemed to dry my face out a lot. I will go back to this probably once or twice a month during bad break out periods.

My husband loved this face scrub. He says it leaves his face baby soft and I honestly dont think I have ever seen a spot of acne on this man's face. I forgot to pick it up this week whole out shopping and he is trying to squeeze the last bit out that he can. Haha.

I bought this product from Walgreen's for less than $4. I have very oily skin and was looking for a scrub to help with that. This scrub is a great everyday cleaner. It has helped hydrate my face tremendously. I would recommend this product to someone with oily skin

I have very sensitive skin so I have to be careful with what I put on my face. This one was a little too rough for my skin... it would leave it a little red and raw! If your skin isn’t sensitive and you feel like it’ll handle it then give it a go! Otherwise, don’t do it!

Great facial scrub. And it’s not harsh on my gentle skin. I use this about once or twice a week. It does leave my skin feeling a little dry after using but it’s nothing a little moisturizer doesn’t help with. Would definitely recommend to those who have oily skin.

I really like this St. Ive's product, but I think that while effective, it is way too harsh for my sensitive skin. I used it over the course of about a month, and my skin felt tight and dry, but very clean. I would recommend this to others that do not have sensitive skin.

This scrub is amazing!!!!!! I definitely recommend to use this if you have occasional breakouts. I used it everyday for a week and it dried out my skin, so I began using it once a week. This is a very inexpensive scrub that works!

I absolutely despise this. Every time I use this, I see no difference on my skin. Does not prevent nor get rid of any blemishes. I don’t like the smell either and it dries my skin out very quickly. Definitely would not recommend.

I have been using this for a long time now. It's one of those scrubs I come back to again and again to get the job done. It is gentle it gets rid of dry skin and blackheads I really love it. I usually buy it at walgreens or cvs.  I would and have definitely recommended to others before.

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