I have used this product for a month already and it reduces my red blemishes real well. It gives my skin a clean, refreshing feel to it. I love this product. I used this product for a while and it didn't really do much for me, I felt like I actually broke out even more using it. It smells really good though but other than that I didn't really like it

I have used this product for YEARS! It is amazing. It is by far the best face wash I have ever found. Not at all pricey. Makes my skin so soft and smooth. HIGHLY recommend!!!!

I have used this product since I was a teen! I love beauty products high & low end but I will always repurchase this product. Nothing leaves my skin so beautifully polished.

I have used this product for years. It has a fresh sent and leaves your skin feeling soft and unbelievably clean! It is a tough exfoliator, so I limit my use to 2-3 per week.

I love how exfoliating this is without being too harsh. It leaves my skin feeling clean and flake free from dry patches. The smell isn't very strong but it smells pretty good.

I can't do my face routine without this! it's my holy grail for cleanser/exfoliater. it's gentle enough where it doesn't irritate my skin, but it makes my face super smooth.

I don't use this all the time, only when I feel my skin needs a deep down thorough cleaning but the light fragrance and gentle scrubbing action make my St. Ives regimen days a treat I look forward to
