I have combination skin and I use this daily in the shower on my face and back. It's not the most gentle scrub out there so light touch is recommended. It smells great, my face feels clean after I use it. I would really recommend using your favorite moisturizer afterwards because the scrub by itself won't hydrate enough. That should be a given. Definitely helps with acne. It evens out your skintone too so the overall redness you might have will be less prominent. BUT DEFINITELY MOISTURIZE!!! If you don't, your skin will become dry, it will try to overcompensate by producing more oil, clogging your pores... you know the drill. Would recommend in your acne fighting regimen!
This scrub is great. I only have to use this 3 times a week (every 2 days), along with an acne toner, and it keeps the acne at bay, especially the blackheads. I usually scrub this on my face for about a minute, and it leaves my face soft and evens out my skin tone. I would definitely recommend, especially if you want to get a good deep cleaning.
Another great thing about this scrub, at least for me, is that I only use this and my acne toner. I don’t have to use another acne cleanser on the days that I don’t use this scrub, just my toner.
Definitely would recommend, though if you have sensitive skin, it might be too rough for you
I love St. Ives. And I have been using many of their products for over 30 years. I think my skin looks pretty good, too, for my age! But this is one of my faves. I like a good scrub, and this tics all the boxes. Smells good, good abrasion, not greasy or too fragrant. And the results are very good. It's my go-to scrub.
I’m pretty sure I paid $13 for a set of two… only one came in the box. Now to be fair, I think they only billed me $8 and ended up refunding me since I didn’t get two, but just buy this at the grocery or big box next time you go - it’s cheaper and you get what you were expecting.
I use this daily as scrub and once a week as mask. As Mask I let sit on my face for 10 minutes and rinse with very warm water to close pours. I have medium pours and this has shrink them to tiny pours. Once in awhile get a zit, I spot treat at night and usually clears within a day or two. Highly recommend 😊
