***Quick View:*** This scrub is great for acne prone or oily skinned people. I actually have dry skin but use it when I am working in the incredible heat doing dirty cleaning jobs as I have been for over a month. It's gentle, effective, and leaves my skin glowing.

***My Take on St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Facial Scrub***

This scrub comes in a 4.5 ounce tube with a flip open cap. It is a light green color with small particles to exfoliate. It smells divine. It has a distinct green tea scent but it's subtle and slightly sweet. I love the scent! The scrub is a pasty type which actually looks like a mask. It doesn't foam so cleansing is necessary before using this scrub (or afterwards if you don't have makeup on). It's a unisex scrub that men and women both can use as the scent, while pleasant, is not "feminine" or girly.

The scrubbing particles are not too large or too harsh for my skin even though this is certainly not made for dry or sensitive skin. It's an invigorating scrub that cleans pores deep down and leaves my face feeling super exfoliated and very clean. Of course, because i am not oily skinned, my face a bit tight after I use **St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Facial Scrub** but the feeling goes away in about 30 minutes. I usually use moisturizer a few minutes after using any scrub so I have no issues with the tightness. I also don't feel that this scrub strips my skin of its natural oils at all. My face feels supple and looks glowing.

I have been doing some very sweaty, dirty work in the house and I have feared breakouts. I haven't had a blemish appear so far. I can't attribute that ALL to** St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Facial Scrub** but it does appear to have helped to keep my skin clear and free of deep down oils and dirt.

I don't use this scrub everyday, just a couple of times a week. I will use it once a week as the weather gets cooler and the need for a deep scrub is lessened. I bought another St. Ives scrub which is for aging skin which I will use under normal circumstances.

***My Viewpoint***

If you're blemish prone, have oily skin, or just want a good, inexpensive scrub that gets your face deep down clean, turns over cells, and makes skin glow, give **St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Facial Scrub **a try! It's not expensive and it's not super harsh. It smells great and works well. ***4 stars!***

Effectiveness
This product cleans deep down and gets rid of dirt, oils, and dead skin. great for oily skin but any skin type will benefit.

Ease of Application
Just apply a small amount to your damp face and rub lightly in a circular motion. Rinse and see the glow.

Scent
Very fresh green tea scent. Really wakes me up and energizes me.

I am getting married October 20th this year and I wanted to try out a new exfoliator for my oily skin. I'm not sure if it's stress or not but my face has been breaking out a little bit more than usual. I know that it is specifically directed towards people with oily or acne prone skin so I thought this would be perfect. My first impression was that it has a nice, pleasant smell. The texture is like a very fine sand, so it's not harsh on my skin. It feels great when I'm putting it on my face and neck, but I haven't noticed any changes in my skin. I personally don't think it has made my skin very smooth. I have tried other face scrubs that work way better. It's not awful but definitely not my favorite. I probably won't repurchase but all in all, it's pretty decent.

      Comments about St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub:

      I started off using the Green Tea scrub once a day, 7 days a week. The only problem I ran into was my face drying out a bit. This was due to its "sand like" nature and can be easily fixed by reducing the use to 4-5 days a week. To make things clear, I really enjoy the light sandy consistency of the product. It helps to remove any oil, black heads, and even helps exfoliate a bit. It left my skin feeling smooth and fresh, while successfully removing/ reducing the amount of black heads. I really enjoy the tantalizing green tea smell it leaves behind. Before switching to the Green Tea scrub, I was using the St. Ives exfoliating apricot face wash, which I found to be way too rough on my delicate skin. This is an ideal product for relatively anyone. The price is truly hard to beat. All in all, it is probably the best bang for your buck! I would highly recommend this product as a thorough black head face wash, even for delicate skin.

      Comments about St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub:

      This is one of my top favorite face washes. I originally bought this one about three years ago because it was one of the cheapest priced ones and that was all I could afford. I didn't use it for a few months after buying it because I assumed it was going to make my face itchy, dry, or just plain irritated so I continued to just use a bar of soap that actually did cause all of those things I was afraid of this facial cleanser doing. Eventually I decided that I might as well try it out because I hated my face feeling dirty but I also hated using the bar soap. I tried it at my normal time I wash my face which is right after I get out of the shower and am getting ready for bed. I washed my face with the tiniest bit of it because I really thought it would sting or burn but it didn't. In fact it was incredibly soothing and light feeling on my face and I felt like one of those commercials of girls washing their faces to promote face washes or facial products. I hadn't realized how bad my skin had gotten from using the bar soap, but after just a couple of days, I could see a very dramatic difference. My skin was smooth and soft, it was no longer chapped, it didn't sting when I went out in the cold anymore. It wasn't tight feeling like bar soap made my face feel, and the smell of it made me feel beautiful. It really is a great face wash, you should try it out!

      This is the same old scrub that I love plus green tea!

      Comments about St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub:

      I have always been a fan of this scrub because it uses natural exfoliates to bring impurities out of the skin. This particular variety is even better because it has green tea in it. The green tea really seems to even out my skin tone and leave my face feeling more refreshed. I don't think this is just a marketing gimmick. This scrub compared to the original truly does seem to leave me feeling and looking more awake and even toned in my face. I don't think the circles and dark spots on my face are nearly as noticeable and my black heads are less significant after using this scrub. It takes time to work but it's worth a few days wait.

      Effectiveness
      I love this scrub. I do get immediate results with the scrub and I can tell a noticeable difference right after the first use each time. This takes a few days to really wipe out some black heads but it's worth the money. It uses little natural scrubbers to pull out black heads and remove dead skin and I can tell my facial skin is much more glowing after using the green tea variety.

      Ease of Application
      This is easy to apply but I will caution users to be careful with their finger tips. The exfoliates in this not only exfoliate the facial skin they are applied to, but also the finger tip skin used to apply them. It can cause irritation on finger tips if you use it every day. I usually use a wash cloth or cleansing pad to apply so my finger tips stay protected.

      Scent
      The scent of this has a fruity smell like apricot and it also has an earthy smell from the tea. It's a nice combination that invigorates my facial skin.

      Comments about St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub:

      I use a wide range of St. Ives products, so when I discovered their St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub, I had to give it try. The price of this product is within comparable range of their other facial scrubs. The cap is easy to remove and easy to screw back on with one hand. The consistency of the scrub is thick, but not too thick. It spreads easily over the skin. The scrubbing texture of this skin care product is just right. The one drawback I discovered using this facial scrub was the scent. It wasn't bad when it was fresh squeezed out of the tube, but the longer I cleaned my skin, the warmer the scrub became on my skin from the circular motion I was using and the scent starting smelling like a cup of stale tea. It was slightly musty smelling. I found it to be unappealing. The scrub rinsed easily from my skin. After a thorough rinsing, the stale scent disappeared and my skin was left with a smooth, fresh, clean feeling and not dry.
