I love how it makes my face feels fresh and clean. I use it like mostly everyday in the morning. It makes my face smooth and soft, smells good. Plus, it doesn't show result in about a couple of week. Depends on how much you use it.

AMAZING!!! Everyone should try this scrub! It is the only thing keeping me from breaking out on my face and smells amazing! I use it once a day in the shower and it gives me soft acne free skin!

My favorite product for years, it cleans well, my skin is so soft after using it, i love the smell, and i don't have to use so much as the scrubbing parts are very dense not like most other brands that mix it with more liquid... :-)

I use this about twice a week to exfloiate my face and to treat my skin. I love the way my face feels after. I don't really care for the smell or the look of the product, but those 2 things are not keeping me from using the product.

I have loved this product ever since I've purchased it almost two years ago! I use it one or two times a month depending on how my skin feels. I get amazingly smooth skin after every use, it will always be a staple product for me.

I love St. Ives, there scrubs feel invigorating but not too harsh on your skin, the little beads really help refresh your skin and help get your mascara off a little easier!

When I was younger I used to use this product a lot. Then I stopped. When I started to break out again recently, I decided to pick this up again after everything failed. I'll never go back to another expensive scrub. It's perfect.

This is my go to face wash and scrub. I have tried many different face washes, and have ridiculously sensitive skin, and always find myself going back to St. Ives. I love that the exfoliating beads are larger, as I tend to find microbeads do not do enough for my skin.

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