This is always my go to face wash! I love the smell of it and how soft my skin is after. Not only can you use this on your face, but also anywhere else on your body as a scrub! It is a great product and a great value.

But I actually need the tough scrub this products offers my oily skin. Would not recommend if you have sensitive skin though I use this daily I would not recommend it as a daily cleaner if you do not have oily skin!

This is my go to face wash! I use it 3 times a week and it keeps my skin looking and feeling fresh. I've used it for the past 6 years and it has never failed to work. For only $4 at Walmart it's well worth the price.

I love all the St.Ives product but I always buy this one.
Its really helps exfoliate my face to help with my acne-prone skin.
You do have to be careful on the walnut shells, they can catch on your blemishes and hurt.

I love that this scrub is oil free. My face is already oily, so I don't need a scrub that just adds to that. It feels great on my face and it makes it super soft. I love the smell!

I love this scrub! I don't use it every day because it tends to dry out my skin if I do, but I can definitely tell it helps to clear up my skin when I do use it! I got this in the campus voxbox which was great because I always have some of this on hand!

I loved this product in the beginning. It worked so quickly to get rid of all pimples. Until a couple weeks into it and then it made me and the rest of my family break out extremely bad.

I have sensitive, combination skin and many facial wash products irritate my skin. This product, however, did not and I have used it for almost a year now. It is effective and refreshing.
