A soothing, gentle scrub for clean and refreshed skin.
I have to say that as someone with insanely dry and sensitive skin, I am truly impressed with how light and gentle this scrub feels on my face. I can use it pretty much daily and it won't dry or irritate my skin one little bit. In terms of clearing acne and preventing breakouts I'm still pretty much on the fence with this product. It definitely does minimize breakouts, however, on the down side, it takes quiet some time to become effective at reducing pre-existing acne. About two months ago, before I began to use this scrub, I was faced with a random string of breakouts. Only over the last week or so have I noticed my skin clearing up and returning to its normal previous state. I don't know whether I can attribute my skin clearing up to this scrub, because it seems to have taken a lot of time for it to actually work.
Nonetheless, I will continue to use this scrub as it does definitely make my skin feel very smooth, clean and refreshed. I also do 100% recommend it to those out there will dry, sensitive and easily irritated skin like myself!

Great scrub and cleanser. Smells really fresh. Love that there are no parabens. I have combination skin and dont find this drying. Love that it is a scrub but gentle at the same time.

I have been using this green tea scrub for over six months now, this product has reduce the size of my acne on my face and has helped to clear to my acne, it leaves my face nice and soft. I use this product on my skin twice a week. It has an nice green tea scent to but it is not over powering. This is my favourite scrub and I will buy more when I run out.

I absolutely St Ives. I use this even more than my apricot scrub because it is more gentle and my skin doesn't need intense exfoliation every day.
This scrub smells lovely, doesn't make me break out, and it's gentle enough to use just about every day. Plus, it's cheap!

I love St. Ives in general and use two of their scrubs, so I thought I would try this one out and I love it, too! Its very granulated, but the beads are tiny, so its perfect since it seems to be able to exfoliate a little more thoroughly. The smell is lovely,its so clean and fresh and the packaging is simple and easy for shower use with a flip top cap. I don't really suffer from surface acne much so I can't really comment on its effectiveness in this area but its a great facial exfoliator and it leaves my skin smooth and soft and smelling great. Its helped in prove the texture of my skin. I will be buying this again.

I wanted to like it..
I really wanted to like this product after hearing so many good things about it. This is a green scrub with really fine milled grains in it. It smells so good and it feels like you are really exfoliating when you use it. However after over a month of using this, I noticed little bumps on my forehead that weren't pimples. At first I thought it was because my skin was purging, but they little red bumps. So I stopped using this product and after about 6 weeks continued to use it again. This time I avoided the forehead area and concentrated on my chin and nose, except the same thing happened again. I really hoped this would be good, but it didn't work for me.

After reading such great reviews of this scrub and my personal love of St Ives Apricot Scrub, I rushed out and brought the Green Tea Scrub, but I wish I hadn't.
My skin is in no way sensitive but this scrub has definitely proved otherwise... After applying to my face I immediately felt stinging to my cheeks, forehead and chin and after quickly washing off I was left with a painful red rash that lasted a total of two days before fully disappearing and a breakout on my chin just to top it all off. Straight in the bin this product went (usually I would pass on to a friend so as not to waste, but this product belongs in the bin in my opinion). On a positive note the smell was lovely and fresh, but not enough to make it even remotely ok enough to give to someone else I know to trial.

Love! *May be drying*
I have combination/oily skin and this does wonders at controlling my oils and battling acne/blemishes. I've seen a noticeable reduction of the size of my pores and the amount of blackheads. It is a great exfoliant and has very fine particles to get rid of all of the dead skin and build up throughout the day. This scrub doesn't have too much of an overpowering scent, I personally quite like it and smells very earthy and natural. However, I do find that with everyday use, 7 days a week, it left my cheeks rather dry and caused some dry patches. Though, it wasn't something that a good moisturiser couldn't fix.

I am in love with this scrub! I have always been afraid of drugstore scrubs due to my sensitive acne prone skin but this is simply amazing. I can use it daily without irritation. I now prefer it to the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant which is also great but too harsh/strong/drying for daily use on my skin. Now that my acne seems to be clearing up my main concern is small bumps of congestion trapped under the skin. This product is helping to clear up that congestion. My skin appears much smoother. I have been using this product every morning and am loving the results. I will probably lessen my usage once the congestion has cleared to once or twice a week. As an added bonus it smells great!

Simple and does what it says!
I have been using this scrub for about 2 months now and I am loving it! I don't have much to compare it to honestly, because this is the first scrub I've used, except it leaves my face feeling smooth and nice. The amount of grit in it is perfect for my skin. It is rough enough to really remove and dead skin, except it doesn't irritate my skin. The ingredients list looks quite natural, the packaging has a clean look to it, and it is very affordable. Overall it is an all-rounder product!
