I have used a lot of face washes and scrubs and this one is decent. It didn’t have any effect on my Acne, but it was pleasant to use and it smelled good. It was good for detoxing your face when you needed it most!

I have used many things including proactive but I really really like this St. Ives scrub. It works for myself and my whole family including teenagers. Blackheads may still remains but they do not seem to worsen.

Another one of my holy grail products for clear skin. Super affordable, smells great & exfoliates. Very effective. I use it about 5 days a week, it can be a bit harsh to use every day. But overall 10/10. Love it.

Something about feeling the scrubbing beads in this makes it unique! It is always in my shower and keeps my skin fresh. I use it about 2x a week and I love the massage it gives my face and the glow I get after it.
