This product has been a god-send! By my early 30s I was STILL getting breakouts (whatever happened to acne being a teenager dilemna?!) and finally stumbled apon this wonderful product. I use it at least every other day but sometimes every day at certain times of the month ;) and it has given me FLAWLESS skin. No more pimples. Period. All that dry flakiness has gone too that I used to get in patches and my skin feels so soft and glowing. It is as cheap as chips and way better than a more expensive Dermatologica scrub I used to use. I think it's the combination of the really gritty crushed walnut shells and SALICILIC acid that works a treat! I use this in combination with Ego Sunsense Anti-aging face cream (tinted in the day and untinted at night) - which is a really hydrating moisturiser yet does not cause breakouts whatsoever! Ego is an Australian brand - not sure if you can yet it overseas but it's also awesome!
I was in search of a new scrub/cleanser after proactive and this one has been great so far. I've been using it for a week only in the morning and it feels super clean and gives a good scrub before moisturiser and makeup application.
I love that it's super affordable and smells nice too.
I've been using this product for 3 years now and its amazing o my skin. I have acne prone skin and always get a gritty feeling on my face if I dont exfoliate everyday. Ive tried to switch to other brands such as Olay, Neutrogena, and Clean and Clear but I always come back to this. Its one of my staples for keeping my skin flawless :)
I absolutely LOVE this product and has repurchased this many times over the last 3 years. I have combination skin acne-prone skin, and I find it is a really good face wash as an every other day product. I especially love to use this product during the summer when my acne gets worse. Makes the skin feel super smooth afterwards.Most definitely worth trying! (and smells super good)
This face scrub is a must have. It does kind of dry out my skin from time to time though, but whatever then I just switch to the normal one without salicylic acid.
Best face wash award for sure ! I have extremely sensitive, fair skin. Never had a problem with acne, thanks to this stuff! Amazing scent, leaves my face fresh, keeps blackheads and blemishes away for sure. It's grainy but it helps to thoroughly wet the cloth/pouf to lessen the roughness. I love the beads and the way this scrubs-it completely removes all of my makeup (not an easy job on my more creative days.) I've been using this for about 5 or 6 years and have received compliments on my skin ever since. The best way to get ideal results is to get your skin into a routine and stick to it. This scrub is a must have, especially for those with full coverage/liquid foundations.
I have been using this for years and I can not think of any better scrub. What's most important about this product, is, that it really is a scrub. It contains crushed nut shell that will scrub and not melt like it happens with other scrubbing products. Therefore, you have to be carefull while using this, if you have irritated skin. It will scrub! I've noticed, that St. Ives changed this product's formula about 2 years ago, and it also came with new package design and a new smell. I like previous version more, but this one still does great job. It really cleans and smoothes my skin. You can also use it as body polish. I always purchase blemish prone skin version, although I do not have any blemishes so I can not comment on it's benefits in this matter. Anyway, this is truly amazing product at reasonable price and you will be lucky to find anything better paying 5 times more.
This scrub was amazing! It left my skin soft and smooth and I could tell a big difference from before I washed my face! I loved the new packaging. It's was modern and a lot more a attractive than the old packaging. And it's pretty good considering the fact that I bought it for a little over 3 bucks. The only thing I have a problem is that when I wash my face it takes a while washing everything off and it always leaves a bit of residue. But I'm fine with that because I use my astringent right after so it takes everything off. I also wish there was a bigger bio other than, "gently cleans pores and helps stop breakouts before they occur. Other than that, I'm definitely repurchasing because of the price and results!
I was using Cetaphil before trying this, and was making my skin overproduce oil and break out. I needed something to slough off the dead skin, and this worked just fine for me. I use it once every couple days very gently for about 10-15 seconds. It makes my skin super soft and now it's not oily! I have dry skin and this does not irritate it or dry it out. I do put medicated lotion on my t-zone area (that's the only place that slightly needed moisture) and it doesn't hurt! If you have moderately severe acne prone skin, use this every couple days very gently for 15 seconds. It works better for me than other medicated acne products like clean and clear and nuetregnena.
I had been using these scrubs all through my 20s off and on. At 28 I had a facial at a spa where the lady was tsking me for using it telling me how it actually leaves micro tears and scarring on my skin blah blah blah. I didnt believe her and kept using my scrub because I love the smell and the feel of my skin afterwards. Smooth like a baby bottom. Then when I turned around 32 I noticed small pits on my cheeks and immediately thought of this scrub and what she said. Ive stopped using it on my face but I have two large tubs so i think it wont do any harm to use on my knees and elbows until it runs out. Also my skin changed when I turned 30. It tends to turn dry if I dont keep on top of it. So I wont be using this again. I need to find a new exfolating scrub. I use to use MK microdermabrasion but its pricey for not very much product but I need it so I will get that now until I find something similar for a better price.
