It just made my skin produce even more oil!


great smell
low cost comparatively
goes a long way


only works for a few washes
dries out skin
is prone to crusting up at the opening

I was really excited about trying it at first because the name brand St. Ives is apparently considered among the best scrubs for acne, this is the generic so I thought I'd give it a try. It smells fantastic! My skin did look a little brighter, but I noticed after a few consecutive washes that my skin was drying out and that it caused my skin to overproduce a lot of oil. After I stopped this, the oil production ceased significantly. The thing is my skin is sooo sensitive that I cannot use any regular facial cleansing product. I knew this ahead of time but still decided to try it anyway. So, like all the others I tried this didn't work for me, however it may work for you guys with normal skin.
