I've been using St. Ives for YEARS. I love all of their scrubs, but this one is super effective for helping clear up acne. St. Ives scrubs are a staple in my daily regimen.

This scrub is good for exfoliating but doesn't get rid of blackheads. The first few uses it feels good but then my skin dried out and I stop using it and blackheads are back.

This product is only supposed to be used 3-4 times a week but honestly, I use it everyday. I have very dry skin and I can handle exfoliating everyday. I don't have problem acne but I do have blackheads. This product leaves my face feeling soft and helps with the blackheads!

I love this scrub! I use it everyday in the shower I love how it scrubs my face and leaves it soft and clean. Plus it's also one of the only scrubs that I'm not allergic too. And I like that it's not super expensive like most scrubs.
