St. Ives Blemish & Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub smells very nice, and makes my skin feel great. However, I don't know how effective it really is in diminishing the appearance of blackheads. I still like the product and will continue buying it, the micro-beads make my skin very soft!

I used to swear by this product! It was the only scrub I would use and it worked! But I've learned that it's very rough on the skin. The texture of it causes many abrasions on the skin, though they might not be visible. I wouldn't recommend it!

This product is so amazing it is the only face product I own and need. I stopped using it for about 3 weeks and my face started getting pimples all over my face. I used it for three days in a row and the pimples stared to disappear completely. This is the best facial product I have tried!

I often find myself buying this scrub. I have combination skin and I love that this scrub gets all my dry dead skin off. Makes my face feel really soft and pretty clear of acne too.
