My mom gave me this product and recommended it to me because she used it when she was around my ages for blemishes and acne. I tried it & I love it. I can't believe how clear my skin is. i still get the occasional breakout now and then but nothing major. this product had cleared my face and i feel great. It also smells good.

I love this product! I use this product everyday to help exfoliate my skin, and clear up my acne. It is a great product to use if your skin is very sensitive and you need and exfoliant. The price is comparable to other exfoliants out there, and would recommend to anyone.

I have very sensitive skin and this product has been a go-to for years. With my sensitive skin I have a hard time finding an exfoliating face wash that isn't too abrasive. With St. Ives I have found a gentle cleanser that I can always count on. A little goes a long way for me!

This can be a little harsh for my skin but works wonders in the "orange peel" on the backs of my arms. The mixture of the exfoliation and the salicylic acid gets rid of those pesky bumps in no time.

When I first purchased this I absolutely loved it. It would leave my fave feeling refreshed and clean after rinsing it off. The exfoliating beads were not harsh and I used it daily. But after awhile my skin for used to it and it didn't help. But I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to try something new.

I use this scrub often.  I have super dry and sensitive skin.  The texture gives me a nice soft exfoliation.  I love the travel size to I can take it anywhere.  My teenage girls also use it.  One has normal skin and the other struggles with oil and it works great for all of us.  I plan on buying more since we all benefit from it!

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