This scrub is a classic. It smells great, and is an amazing exfoliator. Massage into skin for a minute and wash off for soft, clean skin. Plus, at the price, I often find myself repurchasing this product just to keep around for when I feel like giving my face a scrub!

It is coarse grain and dense texture, but it fulfills the purpose of not drying, I use it once a week and remove it with plenty of water. Since the grain is thick we must be very gentle to massage our skin

I love this scrub. It clears up any breakouts I have. The effects are noticeable after just one use. I only use it once a week because I feel any more is too much for my skin but the effects are amazing

I have really acne prone and oily skin and this has been the best face wash that has combatted both of these. It’s a really high grit level which means you can actually feel it working and I love it.

Since I've been using other brands I find this super harsh on my skin. It makes it red and inflamed. I use to love it as a teen-ager but I guess my skin is too sensitive now! It smells great though!

I love st. Ives! It’s super cheap and has a lot of variety when considering how much exfoliation you want in a face wash. The apricot smells really good and has the most intense exfoliation. I love it

Only had this a couple days but it leaves my skin so clear and it smells so good. It's a heavy exfoliation but it really feels like it's working. I got it in the sale and it's now my go to product

I’ve been using this for about a week or two, and I’ve already seen insane improvements in my skin. My skin is normally very textured and a combination between oily and dry, but using this twice a day, morning and night, it’s evened my skin tone and cleared up my skin drastically.

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