Hands down the best value for your money when it comes to drugstore scrub exfoliators. I've yet to come by something better even in the higher price range exfoliants, I always come back to St-Ives. An oldie but goodie!

This is my go to scrub. I use it every other day in the shower and absolutely love it! It is gentle yet abrasive enough to actually make a difference. The smell is great and it overall does its job very well and for a great price! Definitely will continue to buy.
Have only been using this for a few weeks under a recommendation, but it has done such a good job of calming down inflamed areas, mainly wanted it to help reduce my pores and haven't noticed the biggest difference though

I liked this scrub a lot because you can feel it cleaning out your pores but if you have sensitive skin, it wouldn't be great because it's very grainy and rough. If the grains were more finely milled it would be perfect. It's also very affordable. It smells great!

I've been using this product for about 3 months now. I can see a difference in my skin. How soft and even tone it is. I've also noticed less breakouts and flakiness of my skin. Very pleased and will be buying this again.

This one has little exfoliating ball things in it that scrub on the skin and get rid of any dead skin and it really gets in the dirt and cleans everything out, I purchased it from my local drug store and it was for a pretty decent price. I do recommend this one.

This scrub is my go to all time favorite!
I have tried scrubs from other brands but did not feel like they exfoliated my skin as the beads were too fine. This scrub has the perfect texture and really does exfoliate your skin without it feeling dry afterwards.

Sin duda el único que me gusta y no me seca la cara. Deja mi piel con una sensación de frescura y limpieza que no puedo describir. Sus pequeñas partículas exfoliantes dejan mi piel lisa y libre de suciedad sin maltratar. Puedo decir que es un producto excelente.

I have been using this product since I was a child (12 years old) My mom would always have this stocked up in our bathroom. This was back when it was in a container with a lid, before the squeeze bottles.

This is my go to face cleanser. always will be.
