This scrub contains salicylic acid which makes the scrub work better as it causes the surface skin cells to scrub off more easily which opens up clogged pores, so this helps with blackheads and rough skin. Salicylic acid is also anti-inflammatory so it reduces redness of spots, making them less noticeable and helps with clearing them up as well. I love the formula and I use this 2-3 times a week, whenever my skin feels particularly grim. This scrub does have quite large exfoliants so it can feel rough on the skin but my sensitive skin seems alright with it so long as I don't use it too often.

Excellent face exfoliator! Leaves your skin very smooth and last very long! One tube is enough to last you for almost 3 months if used every other day. Affordable price for a very good quality product. I would really recommend this to anybody. I have a combination skin type and I find the result quite satisfying!

Love this product for its natural exfoliant and it's smell! A little goes a long way and makes my skin feel smooth and clean afterwards. I have psoriasis on my face but also an oily T zone (talk about combination!) and this doesn't aggravate it at all. Will continue to buy!

I have used this product on a daily basis for about a year now, being a teenager it is difficult to fight my acne but this scrub has saved me! It's amazing, leaves my skin so soft, and has helped fight my acne. Absolultley amazing!

Damn this is a good exfoliator. I use it every other day and it keeps my skin soft. Haven't noticed any change in my blemishes however but it's good. Only reason I wouldn't buy again is because I usually switch up my skin care products. But overall a good exfoliator

I liked using this scrub, it feels like it's doing something to my skin and it smells nice, however, then I bought the simple matti fying scrub and it was so much better. I realised that actually, this scrub has really big beads in, meaning that it doesn't scrub as well as it could.

I enjoyed using this product as it left my skin feeling smooth after use and he size of the exfoliants were great in my opinion! I would buy this again as it helped fight away my blemishes and felt great on my face too!

Amazing product! Leaves my skin so cleansed, refreshing and gets rid of all dry skin. Gets deep into my pores and keeps my skin almost perfectly clear! Smells lovely too! And its very affordable, I got it for around £3 and it lasts such a Kong time and that's with me using it almost every day!

This is one of my favourite skin care products and I use the product around 3 times week, it's great at fighting blemishes and leaves my skin feeling soft! I've used this product for around 6 months now and never been disappointed by its results. It's a resonable price and I often find its on offer at local stores! Great product and would recommend to those suffering with blemishes

I wouldn't call this 'gentle' but it is my go-to scrub when my skin is clogged or dry, but it is pretty hardcore so I only use a few times a week and in the evenings because it makes my skin go pretty red.

I didn't like this, I felt that it made my skin feel stiff after I had used it and it was very rough on my sensitive skin, It made my face very red and I felt it took off some of my flesh as well as the dead skin, I don't know if it was because I used to much or rubbed it in to hard but the smell is nice and I love everything else by St Ives,It was just that one thing,

Currently on my 2nd one and still loving it. It leaves my skin feeling so soft, and make my spots disappear quicker than normal. I would definitely recommend people buy this, it's part of my daily skincare routine and is great for blemishes.

One thing I can say is that my face has never ever felt softer! I only need two pea sized amounts to cover my entire face and it removes all traces of grime. I use it on a morning before cleansing 4 times a week, it makes such a difference. I would recommend this for oily/combination skin, I think that it may be a bit harsh for sensitive/dry skin. Priced at £4.29 at Boots, a brilliant product.
