I swear by this face wash have been using this since i was in middle school and now in college. I use it every other day, best.. is to steam your face to open pores and gently use this wash, face feel so good and soft after.

I suffered from very bad acne a year ago. I used this product and other St. Ives products and my acne cleared up in 1-3 months. I'm not joking, this product is legit

I really like this and it smells good, but it's a little to harsh for my face. Not in that I sandpaper my face off, just the whole package. I have some though and I use it very occasionally.
