I just wanted to say that this product is really good for pimples.

I had bad acne during highschool and then I started using this.. and I cleared up pretty nicely. I still use it. Doesnt stop your acne but keeps it at bay.. of course you've heard nothing can cure acne. But this one of those miracle products you have to share with others!

Yeah, St. Ives scrub is pretty good. I use it every other day. Keeps my skin soft and costs less than $4 for a one month supply.

You know, you would be amazed how many miracalous products there are under 5 bucks right at your local store like this..

I mean, think about it. I tried Proactive and Murad and all those fancy acne products.. and none of them really works. THen I try this, and wallah!

Makes me wonder if theres is some amazing lightening cream at my local drugstore thats undiscovered!

yeah. im not a big fan of the apricot scrub but it does smell nice. i find it cuts up my skin so i stared to use it every other day then 2x a week but i still found it irritating. but i must say if your skin can stand the scrubing pellets then its really good stuff and its so cheap.

Got ya a skin lighteening recipe that cost less than 5 bucks, recommended from a lady somewhere online.

"Ingredients:

Lemon Juice
Yogurt
The best remedy is to put AT NIGHT lemon juice on your skin, but WASH IT OFF in the morning (don't do this on your face!), otherwise, you will have horrible marks/stains on your skin. Yogurt also works fine, and if you mix it with lemon, it works even better (leave it on as much as you can). You should exfoliate once a week, so you can see better results. Mix sugar and lemon juice to make a paste, and exfoliate your body with it. "

I wouldn't recommend this product. While it may work for some people and be relatively cheap, it can harm your skin.

The particles used for exfoliation, the apricot particles, are uneven and can make tiny tears in your skin. This can also increase your pore size as it may create two small pores into a larger one. Another possible effect of using any exfoliator with large, uneven particles is the irritation of the scrub. Your face may turn slightly red after using a product.

Use a scrub with even particles to exfoliate such as jojoba seeds or aluminum oxide crystals (used in microdermabrasions at the dermatologist's office).

I have to say I like the smell but when I used it it did terrible things to my skin, and I went to my derm and he said it was really bad for your skin. He actually showed me my skin up close under a magnifier and I could see little scratches from the apricot parts. Apparently its not good at all for the skin!

this product is GREAT for pimples, very true....and for oily skin as well. ive found that when i use, my skin isnt overly tight like with most 'oily skin' cleansers, and my skin doesnt get as shiny during the day as well

I like the time wise anti aging scrub. Any scrub can make the skin red. I mean your rubbing sand like granules on your skin to exfoliate. I do a once a week body scrub and mine is red right after but it goes away pretty fast. My skin is so smooth and radiant afterwards.

Ladies:

This is the worst product you use on your skin... you might as well just use sandpaper... you get the same effect.

Why not go for something more gentle, like the Microfiber Cloth ??
