have been using this product and Neutrogena's transparen't facial bar since I was 12 years old and I am now 26. All my life I've had beautiful radiant skin due in part to using this product. I swear by this scrub wholeheartedly. Anyone I've introduced this scrub to swears by it as well! After suffering from adult acne due to hormonal changes this past summer, and trying countless over the counter acne meds, as well as prescribed medications...that experience led me back to my beloved St .Conclusion:I highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone. It doesn't irritate your skin while also making it very smooth.

This is honestly one of the first facial skin care products I've bought for my face as a teenager. Gosh this never failed me yet, it isn't too abrasive, nice smell, not drying on the skin. What more do you want?

This has been my in shower facial scrub for years now! It's incredibly cheap but does the job perfectly!

The scrub is quite coarse so if you suffer from really sensitive skin I would be careful when using this.

Absolutely love this brand. Have been using it for years and it never fails me.  Great for a daily face scrub. Not harsh on skin leaves skin smooth and refreshed every time after every use. Great value for money, not expensive at all

I've used this product for about a month and I really like it as a face wash. It quite a gentle face wash which is nice and also not too pricey. I can't tell if it made a massive impact on controlling my blemishes but i would recommend it and probably repurchase this product.

Really good! The scrub feels amazing on the skin and after the exfoliant is taken off the skin feels soft and healthy :) Make sure to wash off completely as the bits from the product may still be on the skin!

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