Below is a reader review of St. Ives Blemish and Blackhead Control Scrub.
I have suffered with acne since I was a teenager. I thought I would have to deal with it for the rest of my life, but I discovered St. Ives Blemish and Blackhead Control. This scrub not only helps to control current breakouts that I have, but it helps to prevent future breakouts that I know I will have. It also helps that the product smells wonderful instead of like the other products that I usually get that have the salicylic acid in them.
The St. Ives scrub does not leave a harsh feeling on my face. I can use the cream twice a day without worrying about my skin turning red. It is a very gentle cream that I am comfortable using. There are a few different sizes to choose from, but I normally get the smallest container so that I can easily store it in my cabinet or take it with me overnight on trips. The cream goes on the face clear. There are no added oils in the cream. I love the apricot exfoliants that are in the cream. When I rinse the cream off my face, it feels fresh and renewed. It almost feels like I have gone to a cosmetologist and had a facial instead of using a product at home.
The best way that I have found to apply the cream is with a cotton ball. I can use my fingers, but I can’t really get an even layer on my face. My skin is soft from using this product, and I will continue to use it as long as I have acne. I enjoy using it on my nose to get rid of blackheads, and it is great to use in the summer when there is extra oil on my face. The price is perfect, and I know that I can find it at any Target store.
