Best scrub I have ever used! Makes your skin so soft and is not super harsh on your skin! The granules are gritty enough to get rid of dead skin but don't irritate sensitive skin cannot recommend this product enough!

I have sensitive skin and most scrubs are to harsh on my skin, but this scrub doesn't leave my skin dry or irritated. It leave my skin soft and i will see results the next day, plus the good scent is an added bonus.

I have really sensitive skin and this is the only scrub (next to Lush Sea salt scrub) that doesn't break me out. This price is great and it keeps my skin smooth.

This is an awesome product to get all the dirt, oil and makeup off of your skin. I use it about once a week on my combination/acne prone skin and I have noticed significant changes.

My favorite st. Ives facial scrub is the green tea one. Works really well at keeping oil to a minimum and acne at bay! I re-purchase this product each time I use up an entire bottle.

This will forever be my favourite face scrub. I have tried so many different scrubs but I find that this is the only one that is abrasive enough and leaves my skin feeling fresh and cleansed. Also very affordable!
