I have blemish prone combination skin.
This product has done nothing but irritate my skin.
The tiny little scrub beads are way too harsh. I don't have sensitive skin at all, and this scrub stung my face . Was very unpleasant.
Its drying as well. But that's expected.
I don't recommended this product if you have breakouts on your face, its just too irritating on them.
The product is effective and such a steal. I'm a teen with combo skin- and it takes care of my dry cheeks and my oily T-Zone. My skin feels soft and clean after I use this and I notice my breakouts slowly disappear with each application. I wouldn't over-use it though, I use this product twice a weak because it really exfoliates my skin and anymore would be too much. This definitely keeps my breakouts/pimples under control and is the best drugstore scrub out there. I strongly suggest this. Plus, the smell is great.
My favorite drugstore scrub. I prefer this over St. Ives' Apricot scrub since it has smaller granules and is much gentler. I don't have any especially notable acne or other skin blemishes, but I do notice that my skin tends to get ashy especially during the colder months and this scrub is a great way to buff away dead skin and keep your face nice and bright.
My SO has gotten his hands on this scrub and ever since I have had to re-purchase every couple months since he likes to use a HUGE glob of it...a pea-size amount is all you really need so if you do not have an over-extravagant SO using it all up the tube should last you quite a while.
This is one of my favorite face-scubs I've ever used. I like that it's a very fine scrub, its not as harsh as most other drug-store facial scrubs. I feel like it actually exfoliates better because the particles are so fine, but they also dont irritate my sensitive skin or make it feel dry. I love the smell, its a very light calming scent. I love it as an exfoliator but as an acne treatment I am indifferent, it does have salicylic acid which is an ane treatment but I do not like to use scrubs daily.
This is a good scrub if you dont want to spend a lot of money. I prefer that one to the apricot scrub since its not as rough as the apricot scrub. It smells great, and I use this maybe 3 to 4 times a week and my skin is gorgeous :)
I agree that this is an okay scrub. A little harsh for my sensitive/acne-prone skin. The scrubbers are really tiny but feel sort of sharp on my face. That being said, I was never left with any irritation, but I also don't think it did much for my skin, either. Would not repurchase, as I'm trying hard to simplify my routine.
This product is okay... I can remember buying it because of the "green tea" in the title. I cannot say I love it... But I have been through 5 tubes, haha. It doesn't wow me, but it also doesn't irritate my skin and fights my little bouts of acne. I wouldn't mind finding something better :)
I like this just as much as the original St. Ive's apricot scrub. It's not as coarse, so I can't really use it to buff out my dry skin, but it is GREAT for blemishes and for the overall appearance of my skin. It gives me a nice glowing look. I actually like to use this as a face mask, applying it to damp skin and allowing it to dry before washing it off. Exfoliates beautifully and smells great.
I decided to buy this product after I finished my apricot scrub and was looking for an exfoliating cleanser I could use several times a week, also I have a weakness for all things green tea! I adore the smell, but this scrub didn't really do much for my skin: it didn't break me out, nor did it stop me from breaking out. As a previous reviewer mentioned, I also noticed how the apricot scrub was more abrasive, of which I felt helped exfoliate my skin better than the green tea.
Price is great. Was just under $4.00 cdn at Walmart. Tube packaging is convenient and sanitary. This scrub is too drying for my combination/oily clog-prone skin. Even for my oily t-zone, this dried my skin and then some. Fragrance is too much and sensitizing - there was a slight burn upon application. The only thing that it has going for it is the generous amount of tiny granules, which I really liked. Shame. Could be so much better. I guess for the price, it's worth trying, though I won't be using this again. I'm not about to sabotage my quasi-clear skin by letting it go into sebum production overload. Not sure why it good a "Very Good" rating on Beautypedia.
