Pretty good but my skin doesn't always agree with it. Good for a deep clean , but tend to get oily skin afterwards . Good on my body though! Cause extra moisture everywhere besides my tzons can't hurt .

Love this! I try to use it at least once a week, it's super gritty so really exfoliates and gets rid of dead skin. I love how affordable it is and how amazing the results are, such good value for money.

I had doubts about his product, because it didn't work for my friend. Lately I was looking for a cheap product to try, since I'm feeling desperate to cure my acne. Here came St. Ives and after trying it the first time it really was good for me. The product never faltered and been working well for a while now.

I really enjoy using this scrub as I find it really cleans my skin and gets rid of lots of dead skin and dry patches that I sometimes have, however when using it try not to scrub it too hard as it can be a bit scratchy and strip the skin.

This one is a must have! I'm never big on scrubs before but ever since I bought this product, I keep coming back for more. I love how it's easy to find and very affordable. It really leaves a soft and really clean feeling after use. My only complain is the scent as it's pretty strong for my liking, but other than that, top-notch!

I use this product approx 3 times a week in between washing with regular st Ives. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and fresh while controlling my acne. I buy it at Walmart and for under 10$ I am extremely happy with this product and price

I love the abrasive feel of this cleanser. It's rough and exfoliating, and I do like the smell of it. I like to put it on my back and chest, and give my face a good scrub If I want to free up my pores.
