Bought this product after seeing loads of good reviews, and I enjoyed it! Remember that it is a scrub though, so wouldn't recommend using every day, as it can be a bit harsh on skin. Would buy again if on offer!

Dang!!! This is yet the best facial scrub for my acne-prone skin. I love how it has salicylic acid on it as it helps me from my acne. Also, after using this, I couldn't stop touching my face cuz it's so soft!!!

LOVE this scrub!! It's my go to. I first wash my face and then apply the scrub and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and my pours unclogged, even if I don't take my makeup off prior to washing and using the scrub. I repurchase every time I run out.

I have been using this product for years and there’s a reason it’s won so many awards! Really natural and deep cleaning!

All the girls in my family love it too!

I wouldn't recommend any st ives products. This one in particular leaves a weird oily residue on your face, the exfoliant bits are too big and sharp and scratch more than anything.

I don't know if this truly helps my acne however it's a really good exfoliant in helping get rid of my dry skin, I know a lot of people say it's too rough on the skin but I didn't think so! I use it 2x a week

Very abrasive product, left my skin feeling a bit raw after use but with a light hand that can be resolved. Lovely smell and lovely packaging just not as suitable for sensitive skin. I wouldn't purchase again.

A refreshing scrub that I love to use a couple times a week. This product smells amazing and feels fantastic on the skin. It totally revives dull skin and I will continue to keep using this scrub as I love it!
