Their scrubs are all so nice and inexpensive. This one is more harsh so I use it every other day but it works great for my acne! It leaves my skin feeling fresh and very soft.

This is my only cleanse/exfoliator. It has been the only product to clear my blemishes. It doesn't dry or add more oil to my oily skin and it's very affordable. I suggest you try it ! It'll be worth it.

If I could give this product zero stars, I would. I used to buy this at Target long ago. It's SO bad for your skin. The exfoliant causes microlacerations (tears) in the skin, which is obviously damaging and will cause premature aging. I do NOT recommend this at all.

St.Ives has been my go to face scrub for at least the past 12 years. Leaves skin feeling refreshed and smooth. Amazing price and I love that it was one of the few products I could find pretty much whatever country I was in when I traveled.

I love this product! It makes my skin feel so fresh and clean. It's part of my facial routine. Also, the smell is amazing. For it being for acne, it doesn't have that medicine smell like some products do.

It really exfoliates your skin and it does seem to combat my acne. However, it is not something that you should use with incredible frequency, its better to use once a week or less because it can be harsh

I've used this product for years now and no matter how many other products I try, I always go back to this one. It's does a good job of scrubbing my face, but isn't so rough that it leaves my face red and irritated afterwards.
This should be a staple in everyone's skincare arsenal!
