I love this scrub from St. Ives! It has a great scrubby texture that's just the right consistency. The srubbies are made from natural ingredients and do a wonderful job getting rid or rough & dry skin. Best of all, this stuff smells so good I could almost eat it!

This is a good facial scrub for break outs. Not the best, it dried my skin. I used this while I was pregnant and had very oily skin. It was probably just a little to harsh for my skin type.

I always keep this in my shower. I usually use it one to two times per week with great results. I just have to beware of over use a little goes along way when it comes to exfoliation for me. I have loved this for years and its totally an affordable beauty buy.

I've been using this product for years, sure I have gone different ways and tried new products but I have always found myself coming back to this. I had terrible blackheads all over my nose and across my cheeks and it has cleared up ever since I used this product

I will not use any other face wash but this i even got my husband to start using it and he loves it. i think it works much better than all others and the beads make me feel like I'm actually getting a clean face and my face is extremly soft after it feels amazing

This used to be my number 1 favorite face scub, until I learned that it's really too abrasive for the skin. I always felt like this gave me a great deep down clean. Boy was I way off. Exfoliating is good, but this stuff is too rough, especially around the eyes.

I love this product, my type of skin copped really nice with this product. I saw results right away, it made my skin softer and smoothr. I love the fact that it has small particles of what it seems to be the core of an apricot. The smell is awesome as well.!! 😊😊

I have purchased this product and used it repeatedly. The smell is OK, not overpowering. The abrasive chunks are a little too large, and as such it was slightly irritating on my face. However, my face is always clean when I use this product, and it does help with blackheads. I only wish the abrasives were slightly smaller so I could get a bit better exfoliation

This product is amazing! I would highly recommend it especially for the acne flare ups. I saw a huge difference even after one use. I would recommend only using it once a night to prevent dryness but it has worked great!

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