It is an exfoliant and at the same time cleans deep the open pores helping to diminish these, it helps a lot to control the fat and the shine. It consists of walnuts and apricot containing antioxidants, the skin becomes super smooth after applying it and greatly diminishes black spots, this exfoliant is free of oils. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT

St Ives is a super underrated brand. I use their face cream as my daily. It's super cheap and good quality. This scrub is fantastic, smells great and can be added and removed from your routine without having your face suffer! Totally recommend.

I have the most oily skin ever and this is just amazing for my skin I used it around 3-4 times and man my little pores and white heads have disappeared! If you have oily skin and little bumps on your face especially near the nose area or anywhere on the face this is heaven for ladies like us😍🤩

The smell is wonderful leaving ur skin glowy and dewy. And the scrub is not too harsh and better if scrubbed with a Lofah. Would definitely recommend it. Cheap and affordable

A very harsh scrub, only use twice a week as really does dry my skin out. It has a lovely smell and does really calm inflamed areas and reduces redness. As it is very cheap I would recommend to a friend.
