I love this scrub because of the texture of it. I’ve tried many different scrubs but I always come back to this one because I really feel it exfoliating and getting off all of the dead skin on my face. I feel so refreshed after using it.

Great price for a great product. I love the smell of this product and I can feel the difference in my skin after I use it. Not the best for everyday use as it may be a little harsh, but I definitely recommend it to my friends.

I have been using this product for six years now. It leaves my face feeling so soft and works to reduce my acne like a charm. I use on my face and chest and they are generally acne free. Definitely one of the products I live by.

The hype around this product is insane, the first time I used it I was pleasantly surprised with how it smelled and made my skin squeaky clean, but every time I used it I always got more blemishes, so maybe it just isn't for me.

I use this product a few times a week in the shower. It is very coarse so I am gentle when rubbing it on my face. After use, it does make my face feel very refreshed. I feel a big difference in tone of skin when I apply my makeup. Makes skin feel bright and renewed.

This face wash dries my skin out a little too much, even when I apply moisturizer to my face right after use. I prefer this wash for exfoliating my legs and body, but it is too rough on my face.

This is one of those products that is so good, everyone should use it! I have yet to find an exfoliating scrub that sloughs off that layer of dead skin so effectively without leaving behind a residue or irritating your skin.

I wish I could give this a 5 star rating, but I can't. I've tried this multiple times and it never seems to work. The smell isn't too bad and I love the exfoliating beads

I love St Ives and this face scrub works well. While not my favorite face wash, I still use it regularly because it's so cheap. The exfoliating beads are awesome and really work to take dirt and dead skin cells off your face.

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