I just started using this after noticing how bad my blackheads are. It leaves my skin extremely soft and smooth. My skin tends to be a bit problematic and sensitive but this hasn't been an issue for me whatsoever. It has the perfect amount of exfoliates and I'm super pumped about it being 100% natural. I've only been using this for a little bit so as far as blemish control, it seems to be doing it's job. I also can't say about blackheads yet since I have so many it's hard to see a difference and obviously they're not just gonna disappear overnight but I see a lot of potential in this product if used correctly and regularly.

Been using this scrub since I was a teenager. I love the way my face feels after using this. My face gets so smooth and I get so many compliments on the days I use it. You can find it anywhere really. It’s a great buy, truly works wonders, and is super cheap! What a steal!

Smells amazing, softens my face and gives it a really great morning glow. I like to use this after a long day in the city, or sometimes just to give myself a boost of energy.

I love this face wash and I buy it all the time. It leaves my skin feeling really clean and fresh! However I like the old formula better the new little bead things are annoying

I love st Ives but I didn’t notice a difference with this product. I have a lot of blackheads on my nose and large pores as well. This did nothing for me, but it does smell amazing.

I wouldn't recommend using this product DAILY i twice a week is great but don't use this everyday it will be very harsh on the skin. But i do love this product its a great scrub i use it in my face routine and i love it. But i would not recommend using it every day because you need to give your skin a break from all that exfoliating! But the smell is refreshing and nothing over-barring or way too fruity. I love it and i will continue to repurchase this product because it works great for my combo skin. Not to mention the price is fantastic sometimes you can get this for like 2.99 depending where you go, which is a STEAL.
