St. Ives Blemish and Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub is a must have for me. It gently exfoliates all the dry and dead skin off your face, leaving it baby soft.

I've used this product for years. My skin always feels so soft after I use it! When I run out, I break out. :( Best to keep two in the cabinet just in case. ;)

I love this stuff! It helps my skin stay clear and it feels great. I use about 4 - 5 times a week as I have problematic combination skin and it's been great!

Just the right exfoliate without hurting ur skin :) other exfoliaters are rough and may hurt ur skin rather than help :) this product is the right in between !
