I've found that no scrub does what St. Ive's Apricot Scrub can do to my blackheads and bumpy textured skin. Truly a classic in my skincare routine.

Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. Also adds shine and glow to skin. Smells very good and feels amazing to use because it has microbeads inside.

This stuff smells so insanely good. It leaves my sling amazingly soft after. Really gets all the dead skin off. Might be too harsh for some people

This is an okay cleanser. Wouldn't recommend it if you have "older skin". I feel I'm on the brink of that now and it was a little too rough for me.
