Seriously this is one of my favorite facial cleansers. It's really leaves my skin feeling clean and the exfoliating smooths my skin leaving it super soft and touchable.

This is a very good exfoliant scrub! It's a very affordable product that has some great qualities. It's very effective in cleaning out pours and scrubs away stubborn dirt. It also smells amazing! Super cute packaging. This is my go to for an exfoliating cleanser!

I don't use this anymore but I loved it as a teenager. It exfoliated gently without upsetting my skin and helped keep acne clear. It wasn't drying and smelled great.

This product smelled nice but it didn't do really much. It didn't help anyone's blemish control. My son is a teenager so his face seems to breakout a lot but he used it and still kept getting blemishes the same. No help.

This product did not do what it said it would do. It was an okay cleanser, which made my skin soft. It was good as a scrub for exfoliating but it did not help with pimples, blackheads, or blemishes even though I used it daily. Also I don't particularly like St. Ives products. They don't work well for me.

I tried this scrub and it doesn't really work for me.
I used this to help get rid of my blemishes. I thought it would do good, but it didn't.
I have blemishes and dry skin, and it seemed to not really have any affect at all on my face.
On the other hand, this smells good, and can be used as a casual scrub.

I wish they had this product for people with sensitive skin. It took care of my break outs but the exfoliaters were too rough for my skin I felt like it scratched at it, and it over all just dried out my face like crazy even when I only used it twice a week.

MY FAVORITE! I have been using this scrub for years, and it has really helped my skin and acne! I am too terrified to ever try another blemish control product, because this is just working too well. I highly recommend it! St. Ives has never disappointed me.

This has been my go-to scrub for years!!! I'm left feeling clean and fresh, and most importantly, not dried out beyond all reason. It's ALSO perfect for use anywhere else on your body to exfoliate before spray tanning.

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