I like the product and it get the job done but I will not used it everyday because it's very rough on your skin. I don't recommended for sensitive skin.

St. Ives does it again. This is one of my favorite facial wash by them. It washes away all my dirt and grim and leaves me feeling younger and refreshed.

I love this scrub. I have heard some people say that's it's too abrasive but I don't think so. I think it gets the job done but is fairly gentle as well.

I use this on my legs a lot as an exfoliator because the mixture is extremely course and maybe a bit painful. Great for my body, not so much for my face!

One of my favorite in my facial ritual. The scrub is harsh enough to feel effective but not so harsh it leaves my face dry. The scent is an added bonus.
