I've been using Clinique faithfully for five on years, after running out and bring on vacation I bought this to use for the time being, AMAZING. The difference is there. And it was only 5$? I pay 60+ for clinque, I cannot complain at all. Just love!

I use St. Ive's Apricot Scrub for Blackhead and Blemish control several times a week to exfoliate and refresh my skin. I've seen a lot of improvement in the softness and clarity of my skin with time. I've been using this product for over a year now and it has become a staple in my collection.

I have had this product in my shower for about a year and i love it. I use to have pores the size of creators and now they are almost nonexistent. With its sandy spread and its cheap price it is almosst unbeatable. It also smells amazing!! Smells better than any other acne wash I've ever used
