This cleanser has a pretty rough texture so sensitive skin will be a little red after using, but this stuff is a great exfoliant! My skin feels squeaky clean after using it. I would definitely recommend this to people with acne because it makes the skin so so smooth and clean.

Amazing! I've been using this stuff for years. I use it 1-2 times a week before face wash. It make me feel like the wash gets a deeper clean after using it and my skin feels so soft after. It's super inexpensive and lasts forever.

My family has always used St. Ives scrubs and I finally found the one that works best for my skin. I use this to keep my skin smooth and clear. I have large pores on my nose and this really helps keep them clear and less visible. I especially love to use this before I wear heavy makeup to get rid of any flakiness on my skin.

I used to have a lot of problems with my skin, went through and tried just about everything and i love this. I use it in the shower and the way the beads make your face feel, seriously makes it feel like your skin is brand new. LOVE

I use this product when I start breaking out from stress, and it works super fast. I just continue to wash daily until I see my skin bettering. I also used to have that embarrassing body acne, but after washing with this, not at all.

This is a great product for the face, but my favorite application is actually on my feet. The mini travel size of this stuff goes great into luggage and after a long day on my feet at a tradeshow or event, nothing takes the sting out like massaging my feet with this stuff!

I think this face wash is alright, but not fabulous. I think sometimes the scrub is too harsh for sensitive face skin. My husband loves it, and I don't mind to use it every once in awhile but I don't think it's an everyday face wash.

I have used this face scrub for years. It's a little harsh to use daily, I tend to use it about 3 times a week. It smells amazing and makes my skin feel so soft. I love it

This scrub is one of the few that I said to myself "it's a good price, i should try it." It didn't work any miracles for me. I didn't see a difference. It didn't feel refreshing. It's just a regular product that's there. It was okay.

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