Always makes my skin feel smooth and refreshed after use. It's gentle on my skin and it doesn't irritate it. The bottle is easy to squeeze for dispensing. I usually buy this to use for my skin and I would recommend it to others as it was recommended to me.

I will give this scrub a b+, because I found that it is in fact a very coarse scrub which I like to use occasionally. It did eliminate "some" blackheads in my trouble areas and made some smaller. The smell isn't bad. Reasonably priced at any drugstore. I just wish that it came in like a pump of some kind.

Having oily/combination skin can be tricky. I tried this product as an alternative to scrubs that completely leave my skin dry & flakey after use. This product gets straight down into my skin & I can feel a huge difference as I rinse. Soft & supple. I love it.

I have large pores on my nose and if you're like me you hate when they get clogged and make your foundation look horrible. Using this scrub in the shower eliminated my pumpy pores! I use it every other day and it had changed my life! Love this scrub! Not too adbrasive but just enough to du the job.

This exclusive is the best drugstore brand around. I have even tried more expensive ones and always come back to St. Ives. It keeps your skin fresh and leaves you feeling sorry clean.

I felt like this product did not do anything dramatic to my face. The reviews on this product were great before, but I looked back to see that the company has changed the formula. It did not negatively impact my face nor did it impact it in a positive way.

I am going to base this product on skin types because both my sister and I used it. I unfortunately did not have a great experience as my sister did. I experienced tears and redness. My sister's skin looked fresher and it did remove appearance of black heads.

I've gotten all of my friends hooked on this product! Love the way it smells and it works amazingly well at keeping my skin feeling smooth and preventing break outs!
Little bit goes a long way, so the tube lasts me a long time, and it's affordable! Perfect combo. They have other kinds too for different skin types, I definitely recommend giving it a try! ( Or at least trying the small travel size to test it out! ) ;)

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