This is a great product! In under less than a month, it literaly washed away all my blackheads! The only downside is that it sort of dries out my skin, though that could be because I scrubbed it too hard.

I must admit I really love the smell of this face wash, and it did leave my face feeling fresh. But once I began using it I started having breakouts in places I never have before. It literally gave me acne. The grains were also really rough on my face.

I love this facial wash! Before buying this, I switched brands of facial cleanser. I started to have these ugly white spots all over my face. Blackheads also started to pop out everywhere. Also, my face is an oil mine considering that I live in a very humid area.

So I came across this product and I loved how sleek the packaging looked and how I get such a huge amount of product for the price. It was less than $4 I think.

It only contained 2% Salicylic Acid in it which is fairly enough. My face became really clean without making it harshly dried up like what other facial wash with salicylic acid did to me.

The next morning I was surprised that all those bumps in my face were dried up that they almost look as if they're starting to fade away. I was amazed that I decided to throw all my other facial wash that didn't do my face any good. The only thing I worry about this product is that is says in the directions to use it 3-4 times a week. It kind of bothers me because I think this face wash is gentle enough for everyday use. But we must stick the the directions. ;)

I absolutely love this product. I only use it 3 x a week, however it is great. My skin feels soooo soft after using it. I have not really seen a fade in my blackheads, but my acne disappears instantly. I have random blemishes /not a lot of acne. It's really cheap too. I wish the packaging was in a pump form. Do not like using my fingers.

Smells delicious
Great packaging

Dried out my skin terribly!
I dislike Gel cleansers

Bottom line: I bought this cleanser because I thought I had acne. It made my skin so dry I have to use moisturizer (I don't usually, it's my 8th deadly sin) It took a while before I realized I have normal skin and need to lay off of the salicylic acid. It's for oily skinned people.

Recommended: Maybe if someone asked me to recommend them a cleanser like this and they had oily skin I'd tell them to check this out.

***** (edit 1/21/11) IS THIS BEING DISCONTINUED??? *****

I have oily, acne-prone skin and wanted to try something from St. Ives after hearing all the great things and reading reviews about this product. This is a great, gentle formula with microbeads. The smell is really pleasant and it also cleanses very well. The salicylic acid helps prevent and treat my acne, but still removes all of my makeup flawlessly. Really controls my mild-acne, and makes my face feel super clean. I also have very oily skin, and I find this works very well, as long as you moisturize your face afterward.

The only thing I'd change about the packaging is that I wish the pump bottle could be switched/turned closed so I could travel with it.

Also, it's really hard to find in stores (has anyone found this in their local drugstore?) so I ordered mine online (just to try).

I found St. Ives Green Tea Cleanser at Wal-Mart yesterday so I'm going to switch to that until I can find this in my local stores.

p.s. The new packaging looks great too!

One of my night time HG cleansers. I have never had an issue with this and use it in conjunction with EVOO and Grapefruit Neutrogena at night :) This regimen works WONDERSSSS :)
