This face wash is so nice. It smells absolutely amazing! I think it’s effective and wasn’t rough or harsh on my skin. I would recommend this to anyone who is unsure about it. It’s a great price, which is a plus too!

This product is okay. I find st Ives to be harsh. The scrubs tend to hurt my face because they use walnut shells! I like something a bit softer. The product works and it’s inexpensive, I just don’t like it that much!

This is hands down my favorite face wash. The exfoliation is just right for my sensitive skin. It is abrasive enough to remove dirt, but isn’t too rough. I love the smell and feel fresh and clean when I’m finished.

I have dealt with breakouts for a while, i used this paired with some witch hazel and it has cleared my skin tremendously , my skin is smooth and the witch hazel can be very moisturizing on my skin. it works great!

This was my go to face wash for years & years. I liked that it was a scrub & the apricot smell. It’s rather inexpensive for only $4 a tube. It seemed gentle to my skin. I think this probably a good first face wash.

I use this scrub daily and It seems to keep the acne away but It doesn’t get deep down into my pores like It says it’s going too, keeps the face moisturized and healthy looking though.

I’ve used this scrub for years! I always get complimented on how glowing and soft my skin is. I use it twice a week so I’m not being too harsh on my skin. It leaves my skin feeling soft without giving me a reaction.
