This is a good product and lasts for a few hours. However, I felt like I needed to dry my face after, because if I didn’t it would sit and make my face look wet. I have since switched to a makeup setting translucent powder (Rice Powder By Makeup For All) and I love that so much more than the setting spray. It lasts longer and really mattefies me.
These smell great, are gentle, and get the job done. Perfect for when you’re just too lazy to take off your makeup and it’s better to use this than nothing. That being said- these are not cleansing enough to replace washing your face daily. These are more to remove tough makeup before washing, to use in a pinch, remove a mistake, or to clean your face just before you crash from exhaustion.
Best face scrub. This has been my go-to for years. I recommend not using this every day since it is a very powerful scrub. It will definitely dredge up all your pore gunk. Be aware that you may break out your first few times using this because of that reason. Your skin has to adjust to being scrubbed harshly. Use it maybe twice a week and work your way up to every other day or whatever works best for you. This is also great to exfoliate arms that have dry skin bumps and eczema, and also for a bumpy booty!
This is a great smelling product and it feels nice on the skin. However, with blackheads I feel like you want a really vigorous scrub, and this is too gentle. You want to really purge the pores, and I don’t feel like this does the job. I prefer the Fresh Skin scrub for getting all the gunk out.
I love St. Ives. They use ground walnut shells as an exfoliant instead of microbeads so it is great for the environment. I like this scrub, however the Fresh Skin scrub has a much better scrubbing power than this. This one just doesn’t feel like it does as good of a job, especially after you’ve tried both.
Smells really good and is definitely refreshing. HOWEVER, this product as well as many other Clean and Clear products use microbeads. These are small pieces of plastic that are used as an exfoliant that don’t dissolve. They wash down the drain and end up in our waterways. Eventually, fish ingest them and they can lead to a plastic build up in their guts. Worse, the plastic can leach harmful chemicals into the environment and into marine animals bodies that we later ingest. Stay away from microbeads!!!!!!!
