This breaks me out even more for some reason. It is quite abrasive on the skin too. It does remove makeup very well so I'll have to give it that. It's very inexpensive so someone with normal skin could give it a try. Not suitable for someone with dry skin like me!

When I got a lot of small bumps on my face because of sun exposure and my large pores are showing I opt to use this St. Ives, I was not disappointed at all as it helps to heal my bumps and shrink pores plus of course blemishes are less. Happy user of St. Ives here.

This is the best facial skin scrub I have ever used. Depending on your skin type I would use this product twice a week if you have oily skin like myself and probably once a week. This product is also good for people with sensitive skin as it cleanses the pores but doesn’t irritate them.

Best scrub ever! Its so gentle on my skin and has never caused any problems or reactions like some scrubs that I have purchased in the past. It makes my skin feel super soft and smooth after and I do find I have less break outs when I use this product once a week

This is my go-to exfoliate. I have used it for over 10 years easily. I love the smell of it. It makes my face so smooth. It never makes my face feel greasy or overly dry. I buy mine from regularly. Great price for the size. Would definitely recommend.

I use this all the time. Every time I say I’m going to get a new face wash I get this stuff again. I have really dry sensitive skin and this is so great on it. The packaging is super cute too. I paid like 5 dollars for a tub of this stuff and it lasts a long time even with me using it loads. Very recommended.

This product does what it says in the title. It controls by blemishes, however I feel like it is harsh on my skin. I brought this in my local supermarket. This was my jest time using this product. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin.

For if you're on a budget, this is a miracle. I wouldn't want any other face scrub, it's perfect size for chucking in luggage and last a long time. Smells incredible and had the perfect amount of scrub in it. Bought and used it so many times a must have in your skin care routine. 100% recommend

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