Nice and simple. I've used this for blackheads around my nose since I was a teenager but I have to be careful because my skin is so dry that I don't scrub it too hard. Gentle, good smell, it's a great formula.
As an aesthetician this product is horrible for your face… you do not need to exfoliate on a daily basis especially with products that do not have round micro scrubbers. I love the smell but this product is too harsh for your face great for body

I've been using this for years!! I use this once a week to get rid of all the dead skin cells that may build up through out the week! Makes your face so soft and glowing! Love it!

I only get acne occasionally, but I still love using this exfoliator for my face! My skin is so smooth afterwards. I give it a B though because I really don't like the smell even though the results are wonderful

I bought this product because it looked promising but when I tried it out i really couldn't tell if it was doing anything or not. I bought it about a few months ago and I've only used it about 4 times, now it's just sitting on my bathroom shelf collecting dust.

Love this face wash. Even as a cosmetologist, this will always be my go to scrub. I think I works way better on my sensitive skin than any professional skin product I've ever tried.

I've used St Ives for so many years. Has done wonders in my face. I love trying all there products but this one I highly recommend . It leave face so nice and smooth. I love it . The smell is nice and I have sensitivity to my skin but there products never irritate it and that's what I like.

I've had this for a month now and honestly I've seen results. I have so many blemishes and finally it's not too bad. My face doesn't feel too dry and I've been saving lots of money.
