I've been using this for a good month now and i can say it doesn't really help with my acne so that's like lame af. BUT, it does clean out my pores and nose whiteheads really well so I love it for that, and my face feels so smooth after using it. XO, Angel

I’ve been using his this middle school and it really worked on getting the redness out of my face because you know it’s the face of acne and since this I’ve been using it weekly on my cleaning routine. It washes easily and isn’t so harsh on my skin!

Once you use St.Ives scrub you will be addicted to! So inexpensive but still the best  out there. Don't think that because its price is so low you are not getting quality. I cannot be without it! Goes deep into your skin. You see results immediately.

I used to love this product and honestly thought it worked wonders on my skin, but now that I have learned that it actually can be very damaging to skin I will not use it. It does smell wonderful and I thought it did well but now I know that it probably did more damage to my skin than anything

Not a big fan of peach but I like this product. Smell isn’t strong which is good. Scrub is good on the face and gentle. Leaves face feeling soft and clean. Have used it for over a year now (on and off).

This product clears my blemishes and pores so well. I have big pores and this face wash minimizes them so well. My makeup looks way better and my pores don’t look huge. This product is affordable and I would recommend this to anyone.
