This was my go to cleanser! I loved this stuff. It helped take off my makeup and make my skin smooth! The reason I stopped using this is because I read that it can damage skin because of how big the exfoliation is in this

I have used this before. The scent is yummy, however the scrub is so harsh for your skin, and I have heard it contains broken down glass pieces. EW! Not using this on my skin again!

This scrub is the only one I use. I have never gotten better results with my face than with this product. I love the invigorating feeling on my face because it leaves it feeling fresh and completely renewed.

I have used the St. Ives face wash. At first I didn't really like it but after a few days I could really see improvement in my pores! If you're looking for a nice hydrating face wash this is a great one to use!

This scrub is my go to face scrub. Not only does it smell so good I want to eat it, but it leaves my skin feeling like baby skin. I have repurchased it so many times and I think that I will never stop using it!

It will leave your skin really soft, that's a given. But it is also pretty harsh and left me with a bunch of small bumps afterwards. Would not recommend if you have sensitive skin like me.

I used this product for a long time and thought it was great! Reasonable price and does its job. It actually is not good for the skin, those beads are too harsh and end up making microscopic tears at your skin. Also I've read that the beads are not disintegrating and are polluting lakes!

This is a great product to use if you have dry skin and acne because it is a great at exfoliating while also getting rid of acne. Most acne products dry out skin and this does not.
