This is a great product for preteens? At least that's where mine keeps disappearing to 😂 my 12yr old son uses it and enjoys the mild scent and great  moisturizing  and exfoliating effect it has

Not for me. I don't have sensitive skin but this feelings like sandpaper to the skin. It is super thick and harsh to the skin. You can feel the granules on your face. It is great for the removal of makeup though.

This is the best exfoliate I have ever used. It smells nice, the ingredients are 100% natural, and it improves the quality of your skin. It also helps with removing oils and isn't too rough on the skin. It is super affordable, and well worth the buy.

Love st.Ives, it is the perfect for my skin and it gets rid of the dry skin on my face. I've been using it since I was 14 and has a lot of facial acne but over time it cleared up my face and it is so affordable.

This is my holy grail exfoliator. It's deep cleaning, non irritating, and leaves the skin feeling really clean and ready to take serum. An absolute must in any (non-sensitive-skinned) beauty routine.

I really love this scrub, but I cannot use it much since it is very ROUGH on my skin. Do not use it more than once a week. I would not recommend it for people with sensitive skin.

I love this product, smells great...but I would use it once a week, because I have dry to oily skin and I just feel like this product is for ex-foliating and I think we all should do that at least once a week!

One obtuse best shrubs out there for my face it takes off the dry skin leaving my skin smooth. Only thing I suggest it using a moisturizer after to keep your skin always feeling soft

I have noticed my face has a little bit less pimples (although I still have some) , but I have been using it for less than 2 weeks. The smell is not so great but I like the smooth feeling it leaves my skin!

I use St Ives everyday and I work in a hot kitchen so i need something to really cleanse my face because I am always hot. IMO this face wash works great for me with minimal breakouts
