I used to use this product for a daily cleanser before I learned that exfoliating scrubs aren't meant to be used daily. Even so, it never irritated my skin. I always had radiant skin while using this product. I stopped because I wanted something more gentle and because St. Ives is - unfortunately - not cruelty free.

This is a tried and true classic. I love the scrub aspect and how soft it makes my skin feel afterwards. It does a great job and is my go to when not trying out other brands. Highly recommend for my oily, blemish prone skin.

I crub my face regularly with St. Ives blemish and blackhead control and love the softness as I cleanse it off. It exfoliates my skin, keeps it feeling fresh, clean and blemish free after a night of tons of make-up application!

Is a good product but not a excellent product, you could find a better exfoliator for the same price. The good things are Paraben-free formula and Sulfate-free formula

This stuff is great. I have oily acne prone skin and use this stuff once a week. I do tend to break out a lot so my skin gets sensitive so I recommend once a week use.

I'm just starting to use this scrub, but it really does help with blemishes and keeps my skin nice and smooth. It costs $6, so its not expensive and it actually works.

I've used this product for a very long time and still enjoy it! I try to use it twice a week to slough off dry skin. Many brands offer a generic version of this but I really feel it's worth buying the real thing in this case.
