This stuff is super harsh on your skin and the rough “beads” in it should not be used on your face. Make my face break out even more and left scars

St. Ives is a favorite for facial scrub. Not only does it exfoliate but it smells so good!! Plus it leaves my face feeling so velvety smooth.

Great product. I only use it in the shower because it can get very messy in my opinion! I wouldn't recommend using this daily if you have dry skin!
