I’ve used this stuff since the 90s. I love it. I don’t use it all the time, maybe once a week. But it’s such a great exfoliating face wash. Plus it is so inexpensive and a little goes a long way. Make sure you really lotion good afterward.

This is a face scrub that I’ve been using since I was 12 (9 years now). I’m currently very big on cruelty free and vegan products - St. Ives is not, but I just can’t stop buying it. I just feel very clean afterwards and it smells so good.

This is a great drugstore alternative face scrub for when I'm out of my more expensive scrub. It does a great job at removing dead skin without scratching the skin. I do love that it's mostly all natural

My favorite go to exfoliate scrub. It’s budget friendly and effective. I love the smell too. I can say that after use my skin feels smoother and more clean because of the exfoliating beads. I recommend!

Can’t say enough great things about this product. Deeply exfoliating without harsh abrasions to the skin. My pores look 10x better after I use this scrub. An absolute must have for your beauty routine!!

This is by no means a gentle scrub as the granules really feel like you’re working your skin off. However, my skin has never reacted badly with it aside from getting a little red after usage. This is extremely inexpensive and I feel like it does help with exfoliating and keeping acne under control.
