      There are a variety of facial scrubs under the St. Ives name. There are a few reasons I like this particular kind and a few reasons I sometimes pass it up in the aisle.

      Naturally Clear apricot scrub uses walnut shell powder to scrub away dry, rough skin, much like its sister products. What makes


      this different? The salicylic acid included to clear up and prevent future blemishes and blackheads.

      Why I like it: The product smells much more pleasant than the Gentle version (which is hypoallergenic.) It is not tested on animals, states the bottle, a claim not made by the hypoallergenic brand. The product does work extremely well ...


      • to create touchable, smooth skin and prevent blemishes.

        Why I don’t like it: Although it does help prevent blemishes, if you already have acne, it’s not so great. The product can be a little irritating, especially if you have super sensitive skin (If this is true, opt for the less-scented hypoallergenic version.) Also, if you

        use it with any other acne treatments, expect some dry skin.

        So in conclusion, yes this is a great product, HOWEVER it isn’t right for everybody. If you are unsure about whether this is right for your skin type, try the airline-approved sized bottle (I know you can get these at most Wal-Mart stores and CVS pharmacies.)
