i have tried every single facial scrub! This one is hands down my favourite, it’s more on the rough side, which is what’s most effective on my skin! i purchased this from walmart and it was very affordable! i recommend these scrubs to everyone, of course different ones (less harsh or more) depending on skin type

I used to use expensive face scrubs from the body shop but I bought this on a pinch once and haven't looked back. I like how it uses apricot shells to exfoliate and not plastic beads. It's a lot better on the environment and your draining system. This will also clear your skin up and is great for combination skin.

I used to love this stuff but I’ve found since switching to less abrasive exfoliant my skinn is actually clearer. I like that it gives a great clean feeling but it’s quite harsh on the skin, much better for the face then the body. Really affordable. I like the green tea version for something more gentle then this!

Es simplemente perfecto! es como un facial en tu casa, el olor es super rico, la sensación al maseajear con el tu rostro es tan relajante, deja la piel limpia y suave, se nota la diferencia en la primera aplicación, mi piel es grasa y con St. Ives mi piel a mejorado mucho es el mejor aliado para tu rostro.

I find that this is kind of drying for my skin. it is also not actually good for your skin because it uses apricot pit bits as the exfoliator, which actually leave micro abrasions on your skin because the edges are sharp, which can actually cause more harm than good.

I am SO in love with this product!
I really enjoy the amount of tiny rocks in the scrub which really get the dead skin off and help clean your paws.
My mom had a very red face after using this but I personally love it so much! I use it every day and I have recommended it to friends who don't have sensitive skin

I've been using this scrub for so many years I can't even remember. It might be a little bit harsh for some people but it does a great job in getting rid of all the dry dead skin on my face.
