I have stubborn black heads on my nose I never thought would go away until I used this face wash! It minimizes the look of your pores, and you can actually feel the micro beads exfoliating your skin as you scrub, plus It smells good!

This can be ok for exfoliation if you are very gentle. It has rather large chucks that can do some damage. It really clogged my pores, so I had to use the scrub first and then a cleanser afterwards.

I loved this scrub at first, it made my skin so soft. After a week of using this scrub I got little bumps on my face that later turned into pimples. Almost a year later and I still have acne scars.

I love St.Ives scrubs. They leave your skin so soft and it's not too abrasive. It doesn't smell toxic like some other face products. I love how they use natural ingredients and it doesn't leave and residue.

This is a great exfoliant! It's natural, smells great, and it works for all skin types! Although, if you have sensitive skin like me, I wouldn't recommend you use it daily!

I have tested a few different scrubs, and this is my most favorite. It leaves my face clean, soft and bright. Other scrubs would irritate my skin and made my face red, but this leaves a great finish

Love this exfoliator! something to note - it is a bit rough on the skin compared to other high end scrubs. personally, i prefer the micro beads and softer scrubs but when my skin is really dry and flaky, the rough formula works great! would not recommend for daily use though.

I have fair, very sensitive skin and this scrub works so well for me, it exfoliates but doesn't irritate my skin at all and the actual wash is very mild. It smells great and keeps my skin super soft.

This product works great for oily skin. It reduces the pimple outbreaks.
My daughter uses this product everyday. She needs it for outbreaks daily if not her nose begins to show signs of acne. It is inexpensive and we both love it.

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