St. Ives Fresh Skin Olive Cleanser is very average.
I've been using the St. Ives Fresh Skin Olive Cleanser for several weeks now, and I am not impressed. It works, but there isn't much else that can be said on the positive side of the board. My skin is left clean, although I have had more breakouts than usual, but there just doesn't seem to be anything wonderful about it. It does not foam up well, and so it seems to just sit there on my skin. Rubbing it in doesn't spread it or increase the nonexistent foaming action. My last cleanser created this pleasant tingling feeling as I rubbed it on my face, and I was expecting the same thing from St. Ives, but this particular product doesn't do that. It doesn't have any scrubby beads, either, but is very gentle on your skin. The best thing about this product is the price. It was very reasonable, which makes me feel better about being so unimpressed. If I don't have any good coupons or hit a good sale the next time I need to buy more cleanser, I might consider buying this product again - but otherwise, I'm looking forward to trying something new.
