I found this scrub to be very course grainy/harsh. I would definitely not recommend it to be used on sensitive skin. It is a lot grainer than most other scrubs I have tried. Used once a week then applying a light moisturizer is a must as it is quite oil stripping. It does leave your skin feeling very clean, however I prefer a gentler micro bead formula of scrub.

Great for oily/combination skin
I use this once or twice a week, and it doesn't break me out, while leaving my skin feeling super soft and smooth. Definitely be careful if you have sensitive or dry skin though - the particles can be a bit rough and if your skin isn't suited to it, it will break out.

I used to use this in my teen years, and it was amazing. Every time I came out of the shower my face old feel so smooth and refreshed, and smelling it was so calming.

A godsend during my teen years
I don't use this anymore - purely for the fact of my skin changing as I've gotten older and my skin's requirements have changed. I had very oily skin with very full and obvious blackheads that would not disappear, regardless of what I tried. This was a saviour. I used it 3 times a week, sometimes 4 depending on how much I needed saving. It kept a lot of the oil at bay, and cleared my pores. My skin was exfoliated nicely without overdrying/creating more oil. It was a harsh product in the sense that the grits were very gritty but that was the beauty of it, it did it's job. Word of caution though - do NOT apply pressure as you're scrubbing as the grits can cause damage due to being a touch sharp, be gentle and the product works best.

I fell in love with this a few years ago and use it every second day (every day was too harsh). I have oily/combination skin which is prone to blackheads and acne, and this keeps them at bay. It smells amazing and my face actually FEELS clean after using it. Can't complain about the price either, so impressed.

I have combination/oily skin and use this a couple times a week. It is my favourite exfoliator. It doesn't make me break out like other ones, and it smells lovely. I can understand that if you had really sensitive or dry skin it might not be the best though.

I have used many different exfoliants on my face but always return to this one. I use a 5c size amount, once or twice a week in the shower. It exfoliates very well, you can actually feel it working; not like some exfoliants that just seem way too mild and just 'tickle' my skin. It's definitely not abrasive though, and my skin has never reacted badly to it. Very mild scent and great price.

Not for everyone
My mum bought this scrub for me a while back because i was complaining about not having a scrub that cleans my face properly. I've been using it now for more than a year and i can honestly say it works a charm!..... for me! i don't have sensitive or acne-prone skin so the mask doesn't irritate my skin at! it smells great and i believe is great for people who don't have sensitive or acne prone skin and want their skin to feel extremely refreshed. If you haven't tried this product i recommend you do!

Scrub with rough beads
St Ives claim that it exfoliates to reveal smooth and radiant skin. The product comes in Tube packing. The scrub is thick , creamy with little beads. The smell was ok not so strong. A coin size amount is enough for face. I applied it on my face and massage it. I found that little beads are harsh not gentle. I felt that they can tear my skin and cause abrasion. My skin felt dry and tight after using it. I used it for some weeks and did not find any difference in my skin. Appearance of bleach heads and pores was same as it was before. As I have dry skin , so oil controlling is not an issue for me. This scrub did not cause allergic reaction to my skin but did not improve its condition. I was expecting a bit more from it because this scrub has so many good reviews. I felt that it is quite harsh scrub which can damage your skin. It claims that the product contains all natural ingredient but still its beads are too rough.

definitely try it
I love this scrub, every time I use it my skin feels really smooth and clean. However the little particles may be too rough for some types of skin. I read somewhere that man-made exfoliating beads are better than natural ones because they're smoother. So that's definitely something to think about. I still like using this one though.
