What it claims: From America's #1 scrub brand, this scrub with skin-soothing green tea gently fights blemishes and reduces redness & irritation caused by acne. The result is clean and calm skin.

-Does not contain animal ingredients

Size: 4.5 fl oz.

Price: $4.99-$7.99

Where you can buy it: Walmart, Target, Drugstores and anywhere else St. Ives products are sold.

My Rating: 3 peace signs

The Good: First off it smells SO good, it has a slight floral but very clean scent. The formula is a nice consistency not too thick or thin. The beads are very fine so it isn't harsh on the skin at all. I also really like the fact that it's made with more natural ingredients.

The Bad: I personally like a semi harsh scrub for my face because it's the only thing that helps with my blackheads and the stubborn dry spots I get occasionally. With this scrub I found that since the beads were so tiny and fine it really didn't get as much off as I would've liked.

Overall: This would definitely be better for those who prefer a light scrub or have minimal to no problems with blackheads, it just wasn't for my skin type (Oily-combination).
