This product is AMAZING!!! I have been using it for years and it takes care of all my blemishes and blackheads immediately! I can always tell when I haven't been using it because I start noticing zits popping up on my skin and oiliness. I totally recommend this product I have had amazing results.

it is bad for your skin because it makes microscopic cuts into your skin exposing the skin to harmful bacteria. However it has positive health effects such as making the skin rejuvenated and smooth for some people.
The particles, cut your skin! Your skin can actually get worse from irritation.

This is the only blemish control that has worked for my sister and I. I have combination skin and she has a T design oily, and it works better for her, but its the only one we buy.

I know that this scrub might be too harsh for some people, but for me it is perfect. I have oily skin, and this helps me keep it in control. I use this a couple times a week at most.

Great to use twice a week, on Face, elbows, or anywhere. Gets rid and prevents blackheads and dead skin. Really smooths out skin texture in one use. I use when feeling dull or to rid of any kind of buildup On skin. Smells great. Use if you self tan.

I've been using St Ives as my go to face wash for years! It leaves my face feeling really smooth and tends to keep my pores cleaner than any other brand. Very affordable as well. I'll definitely buy it again.

Fantastic scrub for sensitive skin. Keeps my pores on my nose and chin clean and my skin smooth. I use this product every three days to keep my sensitive skin looking healthy. Highly recommend, this facial scrub. It works and it's incredibly inexpensive and can be picked up at any store.

It makes my face feel so soft , and exfoliates wonderfully but its not the best I know its probably better out there . and I have to follow it with a moisturizing face wash like the loreal to get rid of all the dirt etc. but it is a beautiful product

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