Love this. I use this scrub everyday in the green. It smells decent and I actually do like the beads despite what some have said! This is perfect for people who don't have a bad acne problem, just a few red bumps here and there. Great use!

I noticed how a lot of people have commented negatively about this product but this is probably one of my favourite facial products I have. :S I hardly see this in famous drugstores but I don't think it's being discontinued though. I really like everything about this.
I first tried this from a sample packet in a Cosmopolitan mag. and I liked the feeling and the scent the first time I tried it, so i bought the big one. It wasn't too expensive (around £4). I'd use this especially whenever I wake up tired. It does waken me up like what it says on the packaging. I love the smell and the beads also exfoliate my skin, so after drying my face with a towel, my face would always feel so smooth and soft, and it doesn't dry out my skin at all. I think it's the ginseng that gives me the "wide-awake feeling" I get from it :)

the is a review for the orange one.
I should start off by saying that I normally would not buy a face wash like this. I usually stick to very basic face washes for sensitive skin for 2 reasons: 1) my skin can be a little sensitive to fragrances, and espcially my eyes 2) Paula point out in her book that fancy ingredients are worthless in a face wash because it's on you skin for a few second and then washed off --- that makes sense to me. However, I was tempted by the packaging - I'm a sucker for bright, cherry colors. Also, the scent. It's clean and invigorating, just like it said.
It's a basic gel, foaming cleanser with multiple sized plastic beads that are supposed to ex-foliate. To me, there aren't enough beads to really do very good ex-foliating, but it good for ever day use, and I use the St Ives Green Tea as my bi-weekly exfoliant. I use this in the morning, so I dont need to remove make up with it, so I can't comment on how it works for that, but I wouldn't recommend it. It has a ton of fragrance that can irritate the sensitive eye area.
Honestly, this product isn't anything spectacular - it does it's job, my skin is clean and I haven't experiences and adverse reactions, Other then the colorful packaging and the nice scent, there is really no reason for me to go out and buy more when I am done with the one I have, but it is something I would consider buying again when I get bored of my basic cleansers.
It is easily accessible and pretty inexpensive -- around $5 at the drugstore. You can find it on sale, and coupons are available from time to time online.
My only complaint is that whenever I see it in stores, it's like the bottle is 1/3 missing. It's so odd. Is there something wrong, or do they purposely make the tube too big for the quantity sold? I don't get it, but it make me feel like I'm being ripped off a little bit.
Anyways -- this is a nice daily cleanser if you are not using it to remove makeup around the eye area and you are not sensitive to fragrances and such. If you are looking for a good scrub, look elsewhere, but this is nice to daily, gentle ex-foliating.

I was eager to try this, i have seen many on youtube bragging this product up...i was in a hurry and saw a trial size of this and since i was leaving for vacation i grabbed, well when i finally used this i thought the smell was awful, and the beads and overall product was bad feeling on my face! I'm so glad i only paid 99cents because after two times of using i threw away!

The beads did not really exfoliate my skin but instead irritated it. I like how it cleanses my face and reduces the oiliness of my skin.

This is my favorite skin cleanser of all time! I really can not rave enough about it! I've used this on and off again since I was about 12 years old, and every time I go back to it I'm reminded on how much I love it. I have tried both the scrub and the cleanser, but I really like the scrub more because you get more of the "bursting beads" and I find that it works a lot better. I have tried every type Clean and Clear has came out with, and my favorite is the Skin Brightening one. I have an issue with whiteheads and blackheads along with the occasional pimple and this is the only product that successfully treated all of those issues for me.
Another great thing is that these scrubs DO NOT break me out or irritate my skin. They work well at cleansing and they are not to harsh, so you can use them daily unlike some scrubs and exfoliators. They smell nice and clean, and don't over dry my skin. Overall, a product I would highly recommend for all skin types if you want flawless skin!

I happen to like this scrub.
No, it doesn't really do anything. It doesn't destory acne, unplug blackheads, nothing spectacular or life changing- but it does remove flakes and dry skin during the winter and it does leave me with baby soft skin. That's why I will repurchase.
During the winter I get very dry skin, all flaky and rough. It's practically like sand paper on my face. Warm water + a small amount of this scrub + gentle circular motions and all of that flakiness and roughness is gone.
I use it twice a week in the cold months, and once a week in the warmer months.
If you need to get rid of flakiness, this is a great scrub. It's gentle but it's effective. If you're looking for something to get rid of your acne, this isn't the scrub for you.

I received a sample of this product and I am glad I did not purchase the full-size tube. I love the smell of it, but when I used it, it felt like I was slashing my face with a bunch of sharp knives. I have never used a scrub that felt like this before. After I dried my face, it felt really tight and started to peel in places. Never again for this one :(

i only use this once or twice a week otherwise its too harsh and breaks me out, but i love the way it smells and makes my skin feel. i know the fragrance and the menthol in it aren't great for skin, but i cant help how much i like it

Try to ignore the overly cheerful packaging and questionable ingredients 'cause if you're looking for a gentle exfoliating cleanser to use in the morning it's worth a try. I have pretty sensitive skin (probably due to topicals) and I usually have trouble with redness and dryness after using exfoliating cleansers. Not so with this one--in fact my skin feels nice and smooth and ready for make-up after washing with this. I've used it every morning for the past to weeks with no problems, and I'll take it over that Aveeno "Skin Brightening" scrub any day....

I only got it because I couldn't find any more of Garnier Nutritioniste Nutri-Pure exfoliatinf gel cleanser (my HG).
It doesn't do too well at exfoliating, and left my skin very dry and tight. It smells nice though, and did clean my skin, but still didn't do much for me.
Back to my HG! (I found it again, yay)

Unlike the reviewer below me, I am quite glad this did not have salycic acid, as it would have been drying on top of being ineffective. the second ingredient on this list is a kiss of death. this is cheap, yes. effective, gentle, and a pleasure to use, no. even the packaging is pathetic.
don't waste your time and money. only drugstore brand cleansers i've found to produce decent results is Noah's Naturals and Alba. other than that, pick your face washes from great retailers like vitacost or Whole Foods.

I used to use this in high school. I had a fair amount of acne. Not horrible acne but I would break out here and there, so I used this everyday. I think I used this product for a year or more, and one day I realized it was doing NOTHING for my skin. Even though I used it and cleaned my face regularly, I still found myself breaking out! My friend (who used it too, and is a pharmacy student) told me it contained nothing! It was like using water! Even though her face was clear (she has beautiful skin) she told me to stop using it, because it didn't have anything that would fight off or prevent acne. Not even salycic acid. =/ Needless to say, I won't ever be purchasing this ever again.

This scrub is nothing special to begin with. The scrub contains plastic beads as the scrubbing agent and a form of menthol that makes this scrub irritating. There are better products out there.

update: I dont know why I hated it at first. I wasn't using it right. When I have break outs, which are usually along my jawline, I just pat this on and leave it on for a minute, then rinse it. It is really good to just pat on your acne and rinse off, and presto, it is under control and nice again. SO it is great for anyone who has occasional breaking out (which is usually caused by my st. ives apricot scrub) I still use the st. ives apricot scrub, but only in the GENTLE formula in the morning, because my skin is oily and does not need a harsh scrub. But it can break it out a little a long the jawline. This I would apply not the following morning but day after the following morning to control the breakout..or I use this to SUBSITUTE the st. ives, if that morning is the morning for me to scrub but it is too broken out to use the st. ives. By the way , I use the orange one, not the green this to me is my favorite product of the year..I love it more than anything I have tried in a long long long time! I am going to try it on my break outs on my back

Overall, I feel like this product did nothing to my skin. It did make it feel soft after I used it, but other then that, I didn't see any other difference to my skin. I do like the refreshing scent though.

This product is one I have been using for over a year. I must say that though it does not offer "amazing" results, as just a way to wake you up, lightly exfoliate, and cleanse your face it is very wonderful product. Sometimes exfoliating too often will leave your skin harsh and dry, and I find with this product that is not the case.
It does what it's supposed to do and allows for everyday use by not being too harsh on the skin! As an everyday staple, this is a must for me!

I fell in love with this cleanser! It really does wake me up in the morning. The smell is so refreshing..it also has salisylic acid in it, which is great for my combination/acne-prone skin. It exfoliates and gets rid of blackheads. leaving my skin very smooth and smelling nice! I love it! I will always continue to buy this cleanser!

It works well for me at getting rid of blackheads on my nose. I have no problems at all with it. The smell is not horrible- it really does wake you up.

I bought this because I really needed something to wake me up in the mornings (being a grumpy student enduring many a late night). It definitely worked in waking me up, I really like the citrus scent--it's not overpowering, but more refreshing and invigorating. However, the actual scrub and the beads which make up the formula are a little too grainy for me, and while my skin is not particularly sensitive, I felt that they were a little abrasive and unnecessary. They didn't exfoliate really or break down, however I did experience tingling sensations when I used this...not sure if that was good or not.
Used it for about 6 months every other day, didn't see any visible changes in my skin's appearance, but I stuck with it because it didn't make my skin feel too taut or dry afterwards, like some scrubs do (even though I have oily/combination skin? hmm).
I found the price agreeable, but I've since found that for a similar price, Clean & Clear's Daily Pore Cleanser is more effective for me. Also the thing about this type of bottle packaging is that it always seems to accumulate water/grime inside the cap if you leave them in the shower, which is another thing I took into consideration when rating this product.
