I agree with many people that this one is too harsh for your skin. However I was using this once in two weeks and it immediately gave my skin more radiance and flawlessness. I am not sure though whether it can keep breakouts and blemishes at bay but I believe this one leaves your skin very smooth and silky. I used this one on my body as well and it left my skin in a great condition as well so I recommend to keep this in your shower as well.
Simply great. My skin is on the sensitive side (but not severely so) and even though the formula feels pretty rough (the granules aren't perfectly spherical), I don't have an issue with this as long as I'm gentle. Exfoliating had fallen out of my beauty routine for a few years and I'd forgotten about it, yet I've been annoyed with blackheads for a while-- not huge, cystic ones, but the standard fare of dots over the nose and chin crease. I saw immediate results after I used the St. Ives scrub; it virtually erased them and my skin looks amazingly clear, and my pores look slightly less noticeable too. I use it every other day in the shower (going gentler on my cheeks than on my t-zone) after my Clearasil cleanser since they both contain 2% salicylic acid. This will dry your face out a bit, especially cheeks, so moisturize well afterwards!
Will buy it again and have bought it again. Have been using this for more than a year. I use this every morning in the shower and love the way it makes my skin feel....smooth, very smooth. Gets rid of any flakes that could get in the way of smoothly applied foundation. And I really do think my pores have gotten smaller using this. I'm told that's impossible, but I know what I see and my skin glows after using this! Provides the perfect canvas for applying foundation. The scent is light and pleasant. For sure will buy again and totally recommend! :)
I absolutely love this scrub! I don't know if it really does anything to prevent/remove acne, but it leaves my skin feeling super smooth afterwards. I was quite surprised because I have sensitive skin that dries out really easily with face washes, yet despite the large, somewhat coarse granules this didn't seem to dry out my skin? And it smells absolutely delicious too! <3
i always have this in my shower, when my clarisonic runs out of battery, i just smooth this allover my face and neck and i feel so smooth and satisfied. it is nice and scrubby unlike some others i've tried that don't do my face justice.
This is a staple in my skincare routine. I remember when I first hit puberty and my mother whipped this out of her closet and told me to use it. I love how creamy it applies and while the granules are kinda intimidating, I personally don't find them too harsh. I massage this onto my skin for 45secs after washing my face with a Noxema cleanser. The two combined on a daily basis leaves my skin so clean and soft. I especially like that the scrub has 2% salicylic acid so it gives an extra boost to help fight blemishes. I can see the differance in my pores when I try to skip this step to save time. Immediately after using, the pores are noticeably smaller. This is a holy grail exfoiliating scrub!
I have used this product for years, basically ever since I started washing my face with a "real" cleanser. It works great for my skin. Perfect texture for everyday exfoliation and keeps my face nice & clear. It seems like every time I get "bored" with it and try something else, I pretty much return to this before I can even finish the bottle of whatever else I try. It's a nice, basic, and cost-effective cleanser for my normal (yet finicky- if I am at all inconsistent in my routine I do begin to break out) skin.
I wish I had read reviews here before buying this, but I've also found the granules to be too rough! I wouldn't recommend for anyone to use this on their face but it makes a great body scrub/exfoliant.
This is the only thing that keeps my breakouts at bay. I've used this consistently for the past couple of years. It makes my skin feels soft and incredibly clean. I buy it in the tub and I use this in the morning and at night. My husband has suffered from acne since he was a preteen and this has helped him considerably! It's a holy grail product of mine!
I LOVE THIS STUFF! its amazing. my pores are super dirty and the pore strips barely do anything. this scrub smells wonderful and it works amazingly well. my pores are clean and my face is smooth. i use cocoa butter after the wash and my skin is super soft the next day, totally buy this again
