Rated 4.54 out of 5 stars
I have a pretty oily face and work on my feet so I've used about every face scrub imaginable to try to control all the acne and blackheads I get and this is about the only one that works, and it does a fantastic job. It's abrasive enough to about rip the skin off your face so be careful if you have really sensitive skin, but it always leaves my skin feeling extremely soft and smooth and I don't even get many razor bumps when I use this product. I was always a drugstore soap buyer until someone suggested this, now I use JB's daily face cleanser every day and this before the cleanser every other day and my skin has never looked better. I still think I spend more money than any straight man ever should on skincare, but I would definitely recommend this or any of the JB products I've used in a heartbeat.
I've been a loyal JB customer for several years, but am disappointed with this new formulation. For starters, my tube arrived with an ingredients label glued overtop the original. It has a more watery consistency than before. There are larger beads which I appreciate, but those are also pretty sparse. It also takes nearly double the amount of product to cover my face and neck compared with the previous formulation. I would recommend to either include more scrubbing medium (both bamboo and the newer larger beads) or switch back to the previous formulation. As of now don't see myself purchasing this scrub again and it is disappointing because this was my 'go to' scrub I've used exclusively for several years.

Love to use this before shaving, skin feels refreshed and cleaned, I feel that helps to avoid after shaving irritation. Smells amazing, I', using just before shaving, as I'm afraid it can be too strong for a more frequent use, because of the beads.

Legitimately the best face wash for men ever! I am a mechanic by trade so needless to say I get sweaty/ dirty. This face wash has the right amount of grit to make me feel like I get my face clean without stripping off my skin. I would compare it to how using fast orange with pumice cleans your hands. Jack Black kills it with this face wash.

I have tried others, but whenever I return to the Jack Black brand the results are of a greater quality. The formula is like a paste with plenty of beads and it is not runny at all.

This face buff is my favorite Jack Black product. I use it every morning and love how fresh it makes my face feel. Great exfoliator and the mint really helps wake me up.

Love the product but the scrub is too course, wish it were finer.

I like the feel of this product on my face, and neck, and use it before I shave for the day. It provides my skin with a glow and helps prepare my skin for the trauma of shaving.

It's great, feels smooth and refreshing after use. Great fragrance.

I bought this for my husband once before and I agree I think they changed the formula and the beads are bigger. I actually prefer the way it is now. I just used the new one and my face feels incredible. Husband said the same thing. I'm going to ditch my much more expensive Dr. Brandt and use this one moving forward.

I had a sample and was trying to get rid of all my samples. I used this one evening before bed. I was tired as it had been a long day. This scrub felt like it brought new life into me. I loved the mint tingling on my face and the scrub made my skin feel smooth and soft. I was hooked. I also use it from time to time on my body when I just want to feel super clean.

Bought the Christmas gift pack for my brother and he had recommended all products as we both have very similar skin. I love that it is simple and makes your skin feel refreshed. Has definitely improved my skin texture.

Borrowed and it only took one use for me to replace my Rodan & Fields exfoliating cleanser…great price point, effective grit, refreshing fragrance.

Works great on my husbands bald head. Smell great as well. I use it from time to time and love the coarseness of it.

I love Jack Black products. Been using this brand for years now and has never disappointed me yet. Face Buff Energizing Scrub is also one of those that I use regularly and I love it. My face feels clean and the minty feel after is refreshing. Keep up the good job JB!

Works very well. Great for a once a week exfoliation product. Leave skin feeling clean and smooth.
Ashley from Stockton ca
Jack Black 100% reformulated this. I used to love using my boyfriends scrub. It was labeled "peppermint" (notice how this one changed to "mint") and the beads were smaller. The new larger beads are way too harsh and unnecessary. Smell reduced too :(

Really missed it when it wasn't available anywhere for a month or so

Great after a shave. Clears pores, reduced ingrown facial hair and I love the cooling sensation that it provides for my face for a while after usage. Highly recommend.
Andee from Washington
I love this exfoliator. I, a cis woman use it every 2 days and it always leaves my face feeling clean and tingly. I look forward to using it!

I have a beard and I usually use CERAVE. it was leaving my beard dry and itchy i started using this. The first try you will feel a huge difference. I use it 2-3 times a week. Absolutely amazing!!!!!

My husband buys this energizing scrub wash for himself but i use it from time to time because it is an amazing facial scrubber! Smells amazing and leaves your skin feels fresh and "energized". It feels vigorous but not at the same time lol. Great product overall.
