Works great on African American skin. Review by Lance
I use once/day in the shower.
Just takes a dab (lasts me 2 1/2 months).
Invigorating (but not harsh) and refreshing scent.
I've purchased several scrubs from this site and this product works best on my African American skin.
Be sure to strategically place in a hard to find area - my girlfriend uses it frequently and my sister stole my first container!
Finally found a great product for my oily skin and will continue to purchase.
Good scrub Review by Carleton

scrub Review by Paul
Very invigorating. overpriced. Works well.
Great scrub Review by DS
I use this scrub every 2-3 days on my face and shaved head. It works great and is very invigorating. I have not been a big fan of other Jack Black products that I have tried, but this works very well and makes you look forward to the morning shower. I gave it a 4 on price/value because it seems somewhat expensive, but I actually think it may be one of the lower price per ounce scrubs on GL.
Awesome product! Review by jordan
I have been using this product for quite a while now, the grit in it is better than anything else I have tried. the scent awakens your face, and only need a touch to do the job. be gentle when scrubbing as it could irritate the skin if you scrub too hard. price is justified, for such a great product.
my wife stole it Review by CB
Starting using this every other day and I can really tell a difference. I noticed the tube was being moved in the shower and my wife confessed to using it, and she loves it too. It has enough texture to exfoliate and clean without feeling like sandpaper. It is a little pricey, but it only requires a very small amount each time.
Just Get it Trust me Review by Usaid
Ok so my morning routine every other day exists of JB Pure Clean Facial Cleanser then Face Buff, and Kiehl's Facial Fuel energizing moisturizer. Face Buff is strong and very effective at what it does so if you have sensitive skin just be careful. It will wake your face up after you use it trust me. As an exfoliator i cant say enough of how well of a job it does. Like my skin looks new brand new and feels brand new everytime i use it. It gives a nice cool feeling to your skin after using it however its very pricey thats the only downside. 30 dollars for a 6 oz :( . however it will last you for a while because a little of it goes a long way. You only need small amounts of this for your face it will easily last a couple months if not more.
scrubs smoothly Review by JM
cool and refreshing cleanser...
Got rid of black heads after two weeks Review by BBQ Dude
Great product. My nose has big pores, and I've had blackheads for years.
I wasn't even noticing, but looked in the mirror today and my nose has cleaned up quite a bit.
First facial scrub that has given those results.
Very pleased. Review by Royalclan
Enjoye the scent and it does and excellent job in cleaning my face.
The Buff Is The Best Review by John
Love the Face Buff. Nice creamy texture, small scrubs do the job. Been using for years and none come close to this scrub.
The best clean feeling but be gentle Review by Simon
It all started with a sample, then I was hooked. It's a great scrub and leaves you feeling clean and refreshed without residue. Rub gently or else...
A bit harsh Review by J S
I am generally a fan of all Jack Black product but I probably would not re purchase this one. It was a bit to harsh for my face and I do not have sensitive skin. I did not use this product every day, usually only before a shave, but found that it just irritated my skin. It is a great value and has good ingredients if your skin can take it.
Envigorating !! Review by Joseph
I only use this once a week, and in summer, I don't use it if I'm going to be out in the sun right after showering. Since it takes off dead skin, and leaves new skin, you can be more susceptible to burning. But this is one of the best scrubs, and with the menthol, you can just feel the pores opening and being cleaned.
Rub gently Review by El Rooparabra
Rub gently. Don't make the same mistake I did and rub vigorously as if it were shaving cream--I had a red face all morning. A little too heavily fragranced too but fine if you're into that.
Great preshave scrub Review by Michael
I like this scrub for several reasons. It effectively exfoliates ,easily rinses clean and isn't harsh and doesn't' leave skin feeling dry. I highly recommend using I before application of Jack Black Double Duty face moisturizer and have incorporated both into my grooming regimen.
Great scrub Review by Dave
Jack Black makes a great product line and this is one of their best. I use this prior to every shave, and the menthol is a great addition. Excellent product
Good scrub Review by Mark
The face scrub is just great to have even though the beard lube does the job. A little expensive, but it really does prep the face and feels good.
My only scrub Review by Derik
This is the only scrub I use, and have been for a while. I have tried many others but I always prefer Jack Black to them all. I use it in the shower before every shave and I'm convinced this makes for a smoother, less irritating shave.
A Staple in My Shaving Kit Review by Scot
I shouldn't have to repeat this, but Face Buff is only intended for use 2 or 3 times a week. It's a great product and works wonders for me just before a shave. It's clean and refreshing. I suspect the reviewers who gave it 2 and 3 stars either didn't use it correctly or have skin that is just too sensitive for a face buffing product. That said, I don't know how anyone could rate this low for price or value because it's pretty inexpensive, especially in comparison to other products. Try the 6 oz size for an even better value... seriously. I don't even bother with the 3 oz size anymore.
A Great Addition To The Cabinet Review by Eric
This product is great for exfoliating the face and getting rid of all the dead skin as well as unclogging pores. This is great when dealing with blackheads or ingrown hairs, and the menthol leaves a nice feel on your face. Perfect for not only shaving but also a good addition to your routine, should only be used 2 times a week 3 at most due to it's abrasive nature, but it tells you that on the tube (*cough* Jason *cough)
A Winner! Review by Arch
This is a good product from the Jack Black line, but it is not intended for daily usage. I was told to use it every 3 days. The beads are not too harsh and not too light. I really like the menthol scent that leaves the skin fresh/cool. A must try!
The Best Review by Erin Q
Perfect for before shaving, but also not so harsh you can't use everyday. This and JB's Beard Lube are awesome.
Great Overall Scrub Review by Travis
Great product as part of an overall skin care/shaving regimen. It does a great job of clearing dead skin and the menthol cools your skin afterwards. Please note, this is not meant to be used everyday (it even says so on the product). This is a good choice especially if you have oily skin as it won't dry out or irritate skin. It has been a great addition to my skin care/shaving regimen.
A little too abrasive and dry Review by Jason
The Jack Black face buff is a fairly good facial scrub. On the upside it does a good job of removing dead skin from your face, rinses fairly well and has a mild scent. On the downside it is a little too abrasive for daily use, it comes out of the tube a little dry and I'm not a huge fan of the menthol tingle you experience afterwards. The Zirh is better.
Great scrub Review by Josh
I love this scrub, but like another reviewer said the scrubbing ingredients are quite abrasive. It's definately a once or twice a week product. But it works so well that the clean, fresh feeling it gives my face lasts a few days.
Best So Far Review by Reg
I've tried other face scrubs and this has been the best so far. The scrub isn't harsh and I like the nice menthol soothing sensation. I will continue to recommend this product.
Not the best scrub Review by Doug
Although I am a huge fan of almost all of Jack Black products, this one falls a little short, IMHO. The beads are sharp and a little too harsh for the face. I also don't like so much menthol in a face cleanser. It just feels like it's scraping and burning to me. I would recommend the Zirh or Task scrub instead.
Buff it out! Review by Richard Mancini
If you have trouble with shaving irritation on your face or neck, use this twice a week. Rub hard; it removes the dead skin (which can be thick on your neck), allowing for a nick-free shave. Been using it for years--awesome.
