I just have to say I love this stuff. I use it every day, it helps with my blemishes and leaves my skin feeling great. I would say it’s very effective. I constantly re-purchase it I don’t think there’s a bad thing I can say about it. It also helps to minimize my pores and leave my skin not feeling oily

I can't tell you how good this product is on my skin,it helps me when I brake out and makes my skin feel like a babies bum,not joking. You can get it from the drugstore so it is quite cheap but it does its job for me

I actually really liked to use this product while in the shower. With the steam, it felt like the scrub was really working. It is kind of harsh, so I recommend using a light amount and not scrubbing so hard, as addictive as scrubbing can be! This left my skin feeling so fresh and I would definitely buy it again!

I've been using this stuff for a while now and I can definitely feel the effects on my skin on days where I don't use. If you've got an issue with blackheads or just have a hard time getting the skin on your face clean, I suggest you try. It does a good job scrubbing without being excessively abrasive.

The cleanser smelled great though I wouldn't buy it again. I had gotten a bottle of it as a free sample and thought I'd give it a shot. It's very harsh on your skin and the grains scratched up my cheeks. The scrub was way too exfoliating for me. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with sensitive skin.

THIS WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. i just started recently noticing black heads, and i got this and noticed a HUGE decrease in the appearence, and to add on this made my face feel so clean, and refreshed, and the feel it leaves on your face (leaves your face feeling smooth) this was a product i really enjoyed.

My skin is very particular about what I use on it, so I was glad to find that St. Ives products work really well on my sensitive skin. The apricot scrub was effective in getting clean, clear skin. I've been using it for a while now, and I've not complaints!

I love St. Ives and I love the smell of this, but I personally think it's too harsh on my face. It definitely scrubs away blemishes...and also some skin. You have to be gentle. The green tea scrub, however, is a great scrub without being too ruff on your skin.

This is what people call " holy grail" this is seriously the best scrub I've ever used. I've been using it for more than 5 years since I always exfoliate my skin due to my acne prone skin and this has helped so much that i use it every night and morning.
