Bought the Blackhead version after reading good reviews, but unfortunately this scrub didn't really do anything for me.

I like that this is more gentle than the Apricot one, so I use it every night. This does not dry my skin out, and my sensitive skin is taking it well.

I used to have oily skin but I'm more like an oily/combo now that age is catching up.

I have used about half a tube and I feel like my skin did not become brighter. It never helped clear my blackheads, and I don't think it did a good job in exfoliation too. I'm just going to finish the tube up and will not repurchase.

This product is only fit to scrub satan's a$$hole, not your face. No matter what I do I get this scrub in my eyes and it never leaves, not even with flushing it out with water. It stays in my eyes and makes me want to rip them out. I hate it so much I threw it in the trash where it belongs. I don't put this anywhere near my eyes but this stuff is so fine and gritty it migrates there and gets in somehow. It doesn't even exfoliate. The bits are too small and gritty to do anything. They just roughen up the skin. The apricot scrub is good though and does not have this problem.

I use a lot of skin care products, especially acne care products that have chemicals in them. I get dead skin all the time and this helps remove the dead skin on my face... It also feels really fresh and I LOVE the smell of it.

I don't have sensitive skin at all and this scrub gave me red ugly rashes all around my pimple areas. My face felt tight and dry afterwards and the rash stays almost 1 week. This is horrible on my skin and now I can only use it for foot scrub. Too harsh, won't recommend. Not even for the price would I buy any St.Ives scrub again.

I bought a little travel size one meaning to buy the original apricot scrub. this stuff is so good! I still use the original, but I find this one to be more gentle and great for every day use, it's ideal. I love that it's finely milled, and I love the green tea smell. Definitely pick this up!

This review is for the "Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub": This stuff is amazing - I don't think I will ever use another scrub or cleanser again. I've used the Apricot Scrub for close to 10 years, but I bought this on a recommendation and dare I say it...I actually like this even better! I was having a bad break out on my cheeks from a new blush and using this scrub just ONE time made a HUGE difference. It was completely cleared up in 2-3 days. The smell is great, and it does leave my face feeling super soft and not overly dry. I don't really have an issue with redness, so I can't say anything about that, but over all this product completely surpassed my expectations!
***UPDATE - for whatever reason, I don't like this so much as an everyday wash/scrub. I went back to using the apricot scrub everyday and use this one when I'm having a breakout, and have found that this combination works best for my skin.I took off a couple lippies because it isn't very effective as a daily wash to me.***

First thing first, the scent of this scrub is amazing! Then, when i applied it on my face, you can feel the scrubbing particles are fine and yet after rinse off, you feel instant smoothness on your skin. I picked this out of randomness wandering at the drugstore BUT I REALLY enjoy using it. It claimed that you may use it regularly one to three times a day but generally i would just use it maximum twice a day. Yeay to clean and blackhead free skin!

I'm all about trying new products. I loved this product... at first. I would use it once every 2 or 3 days, and for the most part, it cleared my acne. Once I started to start using the scrub more often (once a day) my skin started breaking out, bad. I'm not sure if it's this scrub or the sea breeze I've been using, but my friends have been using it for a long time and give it glowing reviews. So, in my experience, St.Ives may work in the beginning, but in the long run is not a very good face was.

St. Ive's does it again with this one. I always liked their scrub and now with green tea its the bomb! Makes my skin feel smooth and renewed. Plus gets rid of nasty pimples!
