This product did not help with my acne at all. It actually made it worse. I stopped using this product after a week of use. I will not buy it again.

This is my go-to face cleanser and exfoliator. It exfokiates gently without making my fave red afterwards and keeps my skin pimple and blemish free.

I absolutely love the texture and the smell of this. It doesn't smell medicated and I never get the sticky feel that some scrubs give you in the end.

This scrub actually felt really good. I loved the small hint of apricot. Since it was a scrub it made me feel like I was getting deep into my pores.

I love St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot. It smells great, and cleans all the oil and grime off of my face. Once a day, before bed, works well for me.
