Cleans skin, leaves it feeling smooth and fresh, no irritation to skin. Great price, usually on offer. Better then most products I've used before. Nice clean packaging, looks fresh and inviting. Would 100% recommend to a friend and I continue to buy again

De verdad es uno de mis exfoliantes favoritos! Lo usaba 3 veces por semana y mi piel se sentia tan limpia, como nueva. Quitaba mis poros abiertos e incluso tambien puntos negros que tenia. Elimina excesos de brillos y creo que es ideal para pieles grasas!

I found this really dried out and damaged my skin. I bought it hoping that it would help exfoliate dry skin but it only made it worse for me personally, disappointing product, the only thing nice about it is the scent

This is great. Smells lovely like apricots and has a lot of exfoliating pieces to remove dirt and dry skin! I use this once or twice a week as it is quite abrasive! Definitely affordable and would recommend to others!

Great product for getting rid of dry skin, works really well and I've used it again and again. Very effective, had really nice packaging and gentle on the face. Would use a small amount and just gently massage into face with small amount of warm water.

My favourite drug store brand exfoliator. This is a constant in my shopping basket. Old faithful!
Makes my skin smooth and helps banish spots. I have dry combination skin so if you're like me I would advise using a good toner and moisturiser after this.

Love this product. In my opinion the perfect amount of roughness great for in the shower! Live using this on other areas of my skin like the back of my arms to keep skin smooth, great for tan prep! Leaves skin soft nice smell, have repurchased 3 times, and it lasts ages!!!

I think this exfoliation product is fantastic. I really feel like it does a great job of removing dry flakey skin from my forehead. Excellent price. I even use this on my body. I will always repurchase this product .

St.Ives products overall are always great necessities to have. The Acne Control Scrub is good for dry and oily skin types as my sister and I  both use it. It leaves our skins feeling refreshed and soft. I would 100% recommend to others.

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