This Product Works Amazingly Well At Exfoliating Skin! My Skin Has Never Felt This Great. It Gets Rid Of All The Dead Skin And Buildup. I Recommend That You Use It Only Twice A Week Because It Is A Very Intense Exfoliator.

I have been using st Ives since high school. I use it while in the shower and it leaves a mess in there but it cleans my face very nicely and does not irritate it. i have very sensitive skin and this works perfect on me.

This is a good product but I'm tired of it. It's an exfoliant so it is rough, reminds me of sand. It tends to get it hair line as well so that can be annoying if you're not wetting your hair

I love it. It leaves skin feeling clean and smooth. Has a nice light scent. It lasts me a while because I don't use it every time I wash. I use it 3 or 4 times a week.

I love St Ives, always have. However, I have actually switched to generic, store-brand, version of this face wash as I actually find it to do a better job of actually eliminating black-heads.

Good product! Doesn't leave face red like some scrubs I've tried before. Helps to get rid of dead skin. This was my first time using this and it's been about a month. Will repurchase. Helps keep face clear along with the use of other products. Will buy again.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
