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.

Love love love. I tend to use this while showering for the best results. Has a lot of exfoliating beads or "tiny spiky balls" as I like to call it.

I really love this scrub. I leave it in my shower so I can get far down onto my neck without having to worry about getting it all over the place.

I don't recommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin. Very harsh on the skin. It made my skin red and dry and I only used it once a week.

I know it's a scrub and it smells good but does the little particles hurt your skin?
