Life Saver in a bottle
After suffering from serious breakouts I decided to go on a hunt for an exfoliator that would help clear my skin as well has help fade away some of my acne scarring and this product did that.
It is a green gel with tiny white beads that help with ex foliation but does not irritate the skin.
I have been using this for the past three weeks and my skin has cleared up alot and has also been breaking out a lot less.
The only problem I had was that the beads would find away to get into my eyes even though I washed my face with my eyes closed. So be careful guys. But apart from that, so far so good!

Will always go back to this product
This product always clear my skin anytime of the year and it's the best when I dont feel like trying new scrub so i would go back to this one. The smell is great and the bead are tiny yet very gentle on the skin so it's not harsh to use it daily. Afterwards my skin appears smoother and softer so it's best to use it in the morning before makeup and at night to thoroughly cleanse your face after cleanser.
Highly recommend to teenagers especially uni students. I always restock this product whenever princeline has the 40% skincare sale

Very good for any skin type
Not as harsh as the Apricot scrub but still very effective, I've had this in my bathroom for more than a year and use it in the shower with warm water. It gently buffs away dead skin, great for blemish/acne scars. I like to concentrate on the pores for a deep clean. Love the smell and grainy texture. Love the price too. Obsessed with green tea products.
Best with warm water. Gently massage into skin in circular motions, concentrating on the nose area and avoid the eye area.
Any skin type, any season. And it's gentle enough to use every second day.

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!
Most skin types.

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.
