I usually use this scrub in summer, as it leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean, and is more helpful eliminating my oil than the Apricot Scrub. The 1% of salicylic acid, is also great in helping me control my problematic skin.
The consistency of this exfoliator is very different to that of the Apricot Scrub - the consistency of the scrub is a lot softer - more like wet caster sugar - possibly finer, in a gel, as opposed to the Apricot Scrub which feels more like wet sand in a creamy mixture? Thus, as a mechanical exfoliator, it is much more gentle on the skin, so I can use it nearly once every one or two days. However, it's cleansing properties are much stronger than the Apricot Scrub, leaving the skin a lot drier.
This scrub works pretty well on my skin. It's more gentle than the apricot scrub. It's adds glow to my skin and slowly dries out m pimples. I use witchhazel after the scrub in the morning. I guess both of these work great on my skin!
This scrub is amazing!!!!! I used to have really bad skin throughout most of high school, then all of the sudden I stopped breaking out about 6 months ago. Just out of the blue. I wasn't using any special products or anything. Anyway the last few days I started breaking out really badly. Blackheads all over my nose and small blemishes all over my cheeks and forehead. My friend recommended this and voile-I've used it 3 times and already there's a huge difference. Almost all the blemishes are gone and the blackheads are starting to go away. It's surprisingly gentle for a scrub and my skin is sooo soft after I use it. Could not be more happy with this product
I really do like this but i dont love it. It does exfoliate and cleanses my face. But it makes my skin red plus it makes my face feel tight. Other than that im pretty impressed. The little grains dont hurt my face like the apricot scrub does. But i will not repurchase this again
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT SO MUCH.the grains are way less abrasive than the apricot scrub.it's perfect for daily use and it's absolutely amazing.it also smells really nice.i'd recommend it to anyone.
Love this. It scrubs away all the dead skin and makes my face feel so smooth. I also noticed it really reduced redness and prevented pimples. And it smells great! I'm on my 5th bottle and will continue to buy!!
I have blemish prone combination skin.
This product has done nothing but irritate my skin.
The tiny little scrub beads are way too harsh. I don't have sensitive skin at all, and this scrub stung my face . Was very unpleasant.
Its drying as well. But that's expected.
I don't recommended this product if you have breakouts on your face, its just too irritating on them.
The product is effective and such a steal. I'm a teen with combo skin- and it takes care of my dry cheeks and my oily T-Zone. My skin feels soft and clean after I use this and I notice my breakouts slowly disappear with each application. I wouldn't over-use it though, I use this product twice a weak because it really exfoliates my skin and anymore would be too much. This definitely keeps my breakouts/pimples under control and is the best drugstore scrub out there. I strongly suggest this. Plus, the smell is great.
My favorite drugstore scrub. I prefer this over St. Ives' Apricot scrub since it has smaller granules and is much gentler. I don't have any especially notable acne or other skin blemishes, but I do notice that my skin tends to get ashy especially during the colder months and this scrub is a great way to buff away dead skin and keep your face nice and bright.
My SO has gotten his hands on this scrub and ever since I have had to re-purchase every couple months since he likes to use a HUGE glob of it...a pea-size amount is all you really need so if you do not have an over-extravagant SO using it all up the tube should last you quite a while.
This is one of my favorite face-scubs I've ever used. I like that it's a very fine scrub, its not as harsh as most other drug-store facial scrubs. I feel like it actually exfoliates better because the particles are so fine, but they also dont irritate my sensitive skin or make it feel dry. I love the smell, its a very light calming scent. I love it as an exfoliator but as an acne treatment I am indifferent, it does have salicylic acid which is an ane treatment but I do not like to use scrubs daily.
