I like st Ives a lot, but this scrub doesn’t do the job for me. It’s a thicker grain and doesn’t get all of the nooks and crannies on a face that I would like an exfoliant too reach. Not something I would recommend to a friend with textured or blackhead prone skin.

DO NOT USE THIS ON YOUR FACE! The scrub is way too harsh for your face.  It creates micro tears in the skin and they can become inflamed or infected. This will not help acne or clearing the skin. Find a chemical or non-abrasive exfoliator to reduce acne.

This is a really good face scrub! I like it because it doesn't dry out my face too much and it leaves my skin feeling super soft. It is very affordable and smells amazing! It also is an exfoliant which Is really good for your skin when used a proper amour of times.

I have used this product couple of times when my acne gets bad. Otherwise I use their blemish control face scrub. This product is pretty amazing. It helps me slow down my acnes within days. My skin gets smooth after using it. I really like this product.

If I could only use one facial product for the rest of my life this would be it. I’ve used it for years to combat my acne and it has worked wonders. I use it in the morning and it doesn’t make my face red the rest of the day and I use it again before I apply my night cream before bed. I love it.

I'm not a huge fan of the smell, but the exfoliating aspect is amazing, I feel like it really gets in there. Not too harsh though. it's a really good cleanser for the price, i have really oily skin and I actually think the cleanser has toned that down a bit.

Great smell! Does the job. I actually use it every day and I still don’t find it harsh on my skin at all. Love the packaging. Thick and firm bottle. Runs out every month so have to restock but it’s worth it. I do find it removes from makeup from my skin too

This scrub has not done anything for me. After weeks of using this scrub, I saw no change or improvement. My sister also used this for many weeks and saw no change as well. It's affordable and contains a good amount of product. But this is not for me at all

i’d known a handful of people who used this for a while, so i decided to give it a chance. it wasn’t my favorite face wash, as i’d read about how using the microexfoliants everyday can damage your skin, but i’d use it again on days i needed some exfoliation.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
