I love this cleanser. The beads are my best friend. It leaves my face feeling very smooth when I'm done using it. I also think it smells really good. I would definitely buy it and use it more. I have 2 different cleansers so it is hard to decide which one I should use when.

I use this scrub a couple of times a week for the exfoliation to get deep into my pores and really clean my skin. My skin always looks and feels so soft after using it. I love this product and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

This is my number one go to cleanser! I wash my face every night ( if wearing makeup) or every three days depending! Trust me you won't see a blemish insight after using this ! It's affordable and works wondering on those blemishes

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 have used this product every day for years. It doesn't dry my skin out and it is gentle enough to use daily, but it helps prevent breakouts and makes my face feel smooth and fresh. It's inexpensive and works great. I recommend it.

This is a great product. I really like that there are natural ingredients in it. I have sensitive skin, so I use this product about once a week. It makes my skin feel so nice and soft without irritating it or drying it out. I would buy this product again.

I love this facial scrub. It seems to exfoliate my face leaving it feeling clean. The price is reasonable and you can get this product at any drug store. I use this product about 2 times a week and referred it to many of my friends

Great price , great product. I bought this about 4 years ago and I’ve been using it ever since. It leaves my skin very soft and fresh, I love how it feels after washing my face with this. Although using 2 times a week is best because it can be harsh on the skin if used a lot

It's honestly only three stars because to me it is only OKAY. I have used lots and lots of scrubs over the years so it takes a lot to impress me when it comes down to it. I didn't really like the smell either. Great brand but just and OKAY product, sorry St. Ives..

I've been using it since I was a teenager. It's a great price for what it is. However after doing. Lot of reading this scrub is really bad for your skin. It leaves little cuts that are invisible to the naked eye, on your skin. So maybe use it once a week to every two weeks.

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