I used this stuff multiple times and it smells really good and leaves my face feeling nice and smooth after. The only thing is it doesn't really help to much with my blemishes and breakouts.

I love this. It's perfect for my combination skin. I use it almost daily and haven't had any problem with dry skin or irritation. I've been using it for at least 10 years. I love St. Ives products.

I love this product! It's very good at exfoliating. It's an inexpensive product that you can find at almost any store. It's also good at cleaning too. I would definitely repurchase this product and I would recommend it too.

I absolutely love this scrub. I have very dry skin and have to exfoliate often and this product works great for me. Its gentle on my sensitive skin, but works well enough to get the job done.

I don't know. I've tried this many times before, and used it a bit when I was younger, but it just never seemed to work for me. I would still break out. But hey, everyone's face is different.

I received this in the Campus VoxBox and I love it! I've used it for a couple weeks now and I think it works well. I love that I can really feel it exfoliating my face and it smells amazing!

I'm pretty sensitive to how products feel after using them. I don't like how a lot of them leave this oily or heavy feeling behind. This doesn't. Think just leaves everything clean and fresh.

I recently switched from Neutrogena to this, now don't get me wrong I love Neutrogena products but this has made my face feels so smooth and silky. I have been having less breakouts as well!

I think that this product and its reviews speak for itself. Fresh, creamy, and super exfoliating, this is my favorite cleanser to use when I really need to scrub the day's grime from my face.

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