Worth buying!
This will make your skin feel so smooth! And the smell of it is just a bonus! However, the particles are slightly rough and larger than other typical exfoliators. I've used this time and time again, almost two to three times a week (as suggested) and you can definitely see the difference in how soft and smooth your skin feels. It removes dead skin and any other slight imperfections. Although I have acne prone skin, with a careful and gentle wash, it shouldn't cause breakouts of any kind.

Gets rid of blemishes
prevents acne
smells alright


makes acne worse at first

I had moderately severe acne a year ago. Went on minocycline, worked for a month. Acne started coming back. I started using this in combination with the st ives green tea. This every 3 days and the green tea every day. My acne is pretty much controlled now. only a pimple or 2 every few days and my past blemishes are disappearing very quickly(it was horrible a year ago). It doesnt work well at first. After 2 weeks or so your skin gets use to it and the salicylic acid works wonders in preventing the acne from emerging. In adition this is an exfoliator which is good to get rid of impurities. I also take biozinc pills+omega 3 every day and i pretty much ahve mild acne now. However im not sure if my acne decreased so much because of this or because the fact that im 18 now and my hormones are starting to balance. Give it a go i'd recommend

Great smell. Fresh feeling. Diminishes acne. Low price. Washes away oil.


Scrub is rough.

Reduces appearance of acne, gets rid of the oil and exfoliates my skin. It didn't dry it out. The price is amazing and I recommend it.

-Smells amazing
-Little exfoilaitor beads feels great
-Gives skin a fresh feeling afterward
-Leaves skin feeling soft


-None at all.

This stuff smells really great and I'm always excited to wash my face in the morning and at night. It makes my skin feel brand new and I'm literally glowing afterward.

made skin soft, made skin smooth, acne less red, smells good


occasional irritation

The first time I used this, my skin was BADLY irritated. Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that I had never exfoliated before (I was 14) I've used it with caution a few times since then, and it's worked better every time!

- Clears out your pimples/acne
- Uses natural ingredients
- good price
- good smell
- makes your skin feel fresh and clean


If you stop using it for more than 12 hours, pimples re-appear.

Once you use St.Ives, your skin has a great fresh and clean feeling. It helps out with pimples a lot and it cleans out your pores.

- Good price
- You can find it everywhere
-Works pretty well if you don't have sensitive skin


- May irritate skin, people with sensitive skin shouldn't use it imo

I love this scrub, I've been using it for years because is very cheap and it's practically the same as other scrubs that are like $25 , but as i always say , people should find the product that works well for them , we all are not the same , people with sensitive skin should try more expensive scrubs that are not this harsh. About acne, scrubs only remove DEAD CELLS, that has nothing to do with acne, acne is a disease that its cause because of oily skin, to remove oil you must use a face cleanser
