BEST FACE WASH EVER! I say this because personally, I am a big fan of the face scrubs opposed to the wash.  I like when there is scrubby beads in face wash because that's when I feel the actual cleaning happening.  When there are no scrubby beads inside, it feels like I'm putting lotion on my face and no cleaning is being done.

I think to use this product when I feel my skin is getting a little dull. It makes my skin feel nice and smooth after using it and I think it smells nice too. I think St. Ives is a very good value and that this product is a staple to have around. I would definitely repurchase.

I totally love this face scrub!!! This was a staple in y skin care while growing up! It helped me so much!!! If it weren't for this face scrub I don't know how bad my teen break outs would have been. This stuff is truly amazing and I love the smell. I highly recommend it!

I love this scrub especially because of how it leaves my skin feeling after I use it. The tiny granules take off all of my dead skin and leave my face feeling extremely soft. I especially love it because it doesn't dry my skin out like a lot of other anti blemish scrubs do.

I use this everyday, I like the microbeads feels and leaves my face feeling clean after using heavy makeup, I don't see any difference on my blemishes though. I recommend this to everyone looking for a budget friendly everyday facial cleanser

I love feeling fresh after using this cleanser. Pretty abrasive, but I like my cleansers like that. I used this for 8-10 years. Nice packaging, but nothing fancy. Usually got aft Walmart, but I like that I you can get it at most stores. Could have a little nice for packaging.

This scrub has been my go to exfoliator for YEARS, I can't even imagine a time where I didn't use this product. The beads are finely milled, it is gentle but tough on grime, and so satisfying to feel on your face. I will continue to use this scrub and I highly recommend it!

This was my jam back in middle school. I've recently rediscovered it, and I remember what the hype is about. It feels SOOOO good! In between gentle and harsh because of the exfoliation beads. Will continue to buy this in the future!

I live by this stuff. I recommend it if you have clear skin and want to maintain it. I didn't find it to do too much clearing, but did keep my face always feeling fresh. It's somewhat like an exfoliate as well. So it's a 2in1 deal!

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