I read the reviews before using this product, so I knew it wasn't a scrub. I was okay with that. I was even prepared for the whole "stinging eyes" thing (and yes, I didn't wash near my eyes, but it stung to open my eyes anyway). However, even with my normally very decent skin, this dried me out like crazy. I'm going to try it again to be sure, but I didn't feel anything moisturizing at all. And I rarely feel dried out by anything. But yes, disappointed.
I really like this, it doesn't dry out my skin and takes off makeup really well. But I agree with a lot of the other reviews - its not really a 'scrub', the beads in it are really tiny and very few, would have given it 5/5 if it wasn't for this.
I would still repurchase it though - plus it smells really nice :)
I'm suprised so many people seem to dislike this, I love it. I usually use their apricot scrub but thought I'd try something new and seeing as Sydney is going through a bit of a cold snap I'm glad I did,it's very moisturising although could do with being a bit more granulated.
I cannot comprehend the bad reviews this product has received. I love the texture of this, its not too abrasive on my sensitive skin. There is no overpowering smell. I love using this in the shower, it washes off easily. A tube of this has lasted me five months and is still going strong (About half left), I use it 2-3 times a week.
I prefer this to the apricot scrub which I find irritates my skin. Good value for money.
For a daily scrub, its an okay product, but you dont get a lott so it will become kind of pricey. I dont even know why i bought this.. the apricot one was great for my skin! i guess i just wanted to try new stuff xD so yea, this ''scrub'' if we can call it like that.. sucks! The beads just move on your skin, they dont remove your dead skin cellss -.-
This product is called a scrub but it is not one. It's a thick cleanser that contains so few beads that there's really no way your skin can be effectively, or even moderately, exfoliated. The cleanser is thick like a body butter and does leave your skin feeling soft, however it stings the eyes worse than any other product I've used and it doesn't really clean off any grime. You might as well just wash your face with a squirt of your favorite lotion.
I've used and loved the St. Ives Apricot Scrub for 8 years and had high hopes for the Olive Oil Scrub, but it was so bad I just had to throw it away.
I have a sensitive skin that doesn't react too well to strong products, so this is really perfect for me. I don't have acne, and I only wear make up on weekends so I was looking for a gentle scrub that's not too expensive and can be used daily. I really like it
A WOW I dont understad the BAd reviews Because I Love this
amazing face scrub is the most gentle face scrub Ive ever tried
it doesnt Irritated my skin like Apricot one that it made my skin
bad and red as a lobster this one is moisturinzing ,hydrating
super gentle I use once a week makes my skin baby soft is
super cheap I am glad it work on my dry and sensitive skin :)
This product makes my skin sooooo soft. I love the microbeads in it. It feels really good on my face. The only complaint is that this stings my eyes, majorly. I keep my eyes shut until I have rinsed it all off, but it still stings them. Other than that, a great scrub!
i like how it is not harsh and leaves ur skin feeling nice and soft i use it once a week or so i change it up with the murad acne wash and the regular face wash .. i like to use it on one of those lofas for the face and go in small circles make it uber soft ! and use it on my feet lol i no its a face wash but hey
