I use this as my daily facial exfoliater in the shower. Works great to remove make-up and brightens skin by sloughing off dead cells. Helps to control pimples but does not dry out your skin.

I love this stuff. I love the smell although I don't know if that's normal. Lol but it makes my face feel so soft and clean. It really helps with my blackheads on my nose. Excellent product.

This stuff is alright for the price you pay. Makes a good generic face wash. However, the apricot seeds can cause micro tears in your skin so I would avoid using this if at all possible.

Although this smells great and is reasonably priced, I will not buy again.
The exfoliating beads are much too harsh for my sensitive skin, and too big to actually help with blackheads.
Although more expensive, I prefer Neutrogena's Pink Grapefruit scrub.

I have always suffered from really bad blackheads and after using this a couple of times they have almost all gone. This stuff is great and it makes your face feel so smooth afterwards.

My all time favorite! My mom has been using this scrub for over 12years and i've been using for the past 4 or 5 years. There's good enough quantity , for like 6-7 months. ie if you use it atleast once in a week!

I can only use this cleanse once or twice every two weeks as it does have a lot of crystals or exfoliating effects and I do have sensitive skin. It is a great exfoliate though, smells great and leaves skins with much less dry skin, feeling soft and smooth.

I love St Ives for their wide selection of facial cleansers for diffferent skin types and for their fantastic price! The products rage from gentle to more aggressive. St Ives is a staple in my skin care routine.
