I love this product! My skin is more on the sensitive side, so I can only use it about 3 times a week. I find that it works well, after using it my skin feels smooth and tight. However, It does have a rougher texture which may bother some people.

great product to help get rid of white heads and reduce pore size as well as overall exfoliate the skin to get rid of dead skin cells. A difference is seen after a good 3-4 days of use

LOVE THIS. I get a lot of acne especially during certain times of the month and this controls my acne. It's meant for all skin types. Me, being an oily skin person, this really controls the oil but keeps my face feeling moisturized and not too dry.

I love this product, I've been using it 3 times a week for about 2 months now and my skin is now completely clear! It makes your skin so soft and I love the smell! Worth the purchase.

I've used this face wash since high school and there's nothing to complain about. I like how it truly scrubs my skin and feels like it's really cleaning my face.

I really liked it. Purchased it on random when I saw it on sale. I've used St. Ives hand creams before, and just like the cream, the face wash didn't let me down.

I have yet to find a simple product that works so well and for so little. I've been using this product for over 10 years and it works just as well every darn time.
