I would not recommend this product as it does absolutely nothing to help acne/break outs (at least in my case). In fact, i broke out more than usual after i started using it. Will definitely switch back to my regular St.Ives scrub for sensitive skin, as it did a better job at preventing acne than this product which was actually designated to the prevention of acne..

Pros:
  • Smells great
Cons:
  • Tiny stone-like things get left behind on face/get in eyes
  • Does absolutely nothing
  • Made my face break out
  • Left my face feeling dry/tight

“New favourite exfoliator”
By on

I love this scrub. I was using the St. Ives Apricot Scrub for quite a while and loved it as well, but really wanted to try something that would help clear my skin as well as make my skin smooth. So I purchased this one. It's more gentle on my skin than the apricot scrub, so I can easily use it twice a day. Since I've been using it, I've noticed a complete reduction in the blackheads on my nose. They're gone! They were never awful to begin with, but they were still unsightly enough, and now that's one less facial concern to have to deal with. More importantly, this scrub does help with my breakouts. If I have a new pimple, this scrub works really well at getting rid of it from the get-go. My skin is still far from perfect, but I think if I keep doing what I've been doing I'll be closer to the perfect skin I dream of in no time!

Pros

  • Smells fantastic
  • Makes skin feel really soft
  • Gets rid of blackheads

Cons

  • None
  • for about a month
  • $ 10
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

“Love it”

I use this scrub 2 or 3 times a week. Any more than that is too harsh for my skin. I like how it removes dull skin and makes my skin brighter and softer. I love it so much it is amazing! When i have a scab or something after a pimple goes down, the scrub majorly speeds up the healing time.

Pros

  • smells amazing
  • makes my skin feel super soft
  • helps my skin heal faster

Cons

[not submitted]
  • for about a month
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I love this scrub. I currently use it about every other day, but have gone through periods of using it every day without problems. It really helped to smooth out the texture of my skin. Can be used as a mask, too.

St. Ive's Green Tea Scrub is something that I use every once in a while when i feel like my face needs a good deep cleaning. i would not recommened using it every day as a staple face wash but i think it does a nice job at making my face feel vibrant, soft, and fresh.

Pros

  • smells nice
  • travel size available

Cons

  • scrubbing beads are too harsh on face
  • doesn't completely clear acne
  • severe
  • for a few months
  • $ 6.99
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I used this for a while because I really wanted it to work. It didn't work for me, as well as a lot of the "naturally clear" products. They always make my acne worse. If you have inflamed acne - you should NOT be using a scrub, it will just irritate it more. I have pretty mild acne, maybe 2-3 spots at a time on my face, or none, and this irritated my acne and made it worse, and made it more noticeable, causing me to want to use it more to make it better. It was a vicious circle. Do yourself a favor, and save your money.

Pros

  • It smells nice.

Cons

  • It didn't do the job of exfoliating
  • Broke me out
  • Irritated my skin
  • "sand" gets left behind on your skin even when washed with water
  • light
  • for a few months
  • $ 7
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

I Love this product! I use it in the am and pm and it makes my skin feel refreshed! I feel like it does a good job of getting everything that's on my skin off and cleared away. Plus, it's a really gentle exfoliator that's great for everyday use. It never dried out my skin or made it red. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone that asked.

Pros

  • Smells great
  • Sensitive on the skin
  • Reduces redness
  • Many ways you can use it
  • Removes make up thoroughly!

Cons

  • None that I can tell so far
  • light
  • for a few months
  • $ 6
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

  • Leaves skin soft
  • Clears breakouts and upcoming pimples!
