While I just received this product in my Campus VoxBox, I have used it before. I really love all St. Ives products because they are natural and smell amazing, but this one really takes the cake. It makes my face feel SO fresh and clean while also fighting acne, which is an added bonus :) Definitely recommend!

I have to say this scrub is amazing I'm not big on face washes but I think I'm going to be now. I've tried other face washes but they would leave my face feeling rough and I didn't like that but after just one use of this scrub I have to say I was pleseantly surprised with the result. It left my skin feeling soft and I have to say it smells soooo good. Totally recommended this as a face wash to have even if you don't have acne.

Use this product beforehand, but it was a gentle scrub not meant for blemish control I believe. Works wonders when used on a pimple, it didn't even allow it to get red before it completely disappeared! Only use it when I have a blemish, not so much to prevent but I'm sure it would prevent if it does make a blemish go away. Received this product complementary from CampusVoxBox for testing purposes. :)

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