I wanted to try something less harsh that would still keep my skin clear without drying. Unfortunately, this wasn't enough to prevent breakouts for me.

I've played around with other scrubs, but I found that St. Ives Apricot scrub works best. It is really gritty so it definitely cleans out your pores.

Very good face scrub. I love this product! I use it 5 out of 7 days if not every single night. My skin instantly feels 10xs smoother after using this.

It's incredibly good for exfoliating, but my skin just doesn't feel clean after I use it. I don't believe it does anything to my blackheads and pores.
