Such an affordable product! I would recommend this to anyone who is breaking out badly. I love the smell of this face wash, it also exfoliates your skin. I’ve used it for a while, my skin has been clearing up!

This is my favorite facial scrub. I use it about 1 or 2 times a week and it always leaves my face feeling fresh and soft. It smells really good and I definitely plan on buying this again. I think everyone should try this product.

The only face wash that works for me! Works great during pregnancy. I had a tough time finding a wash that would fight my acne, and this is the only one that was gentle enough and made my face SO much clearer!

People need to stop with this St Ives scrubs. Dude they use apricots which are not round enough and will give you micro scars on your face or anywhere else you put this stuff! Especially not good for acne prone skin. STAY AWAY!

I love this product! On the face it is a bit too rough. However I use it as a body scrub and it leaves my skin feeling very smooth. I always use this to follow my body and it has been working very well so far!
