Facial cleansers and scrubs work well for the facial skin (as well as all over the body) as they help reveal new smoother and clearer skin.
Cleansers work more like 'soaps' with some coming in deep cleansing, pore refining and more specifically targeted at different skin types. For instance, a cleanser or scrub meant for dry skin may not be suitable (usually isn't suitable) for dry skin as the different skintypes would have their own composition.
Where scrubs come with a little more grit to them, usually bursting beads or bits of plant ingredients to help exfoliate revealing newer skin- scrubs are usually not for daily use except where otherwise indicated.
