Hi everyone,

Today, I am going to review the skincare product and it is the St, Ives Blemish Fighting Facial Scrub.
This scrub is for oily skin people that has a lot of blemishes and pimples. I would use this after steaming and before cleansing your face with your usual cleanser.

This is actually a very effective scrub if you use it constantly every week. It does not dry your skin out. Instead if feels like it gets rid of all the dirt on your face. Some people might think it is a bit rough on the skin because it has a lot of particles on it. But when you just massage it on your face and rinse it, your skin will feel soft. I don't know if it does much help to blackhead though. I think this is more for treating acnes and spots. The products and ingredients has kind of changed to previous. The scent is very strong. I actually don't like the scent. It is the one thing that makes me put off it.

- it is a large quantity so takes a while to finish
- it is less expensive
- it feels like it is cleaning the dirt off your face effectively

- the scent - I'm not a fan of it. its got apricot smell
- may feel a bit rough on the skin when you first apply it so need to kind of mix it with water.

Rating: 8/10
I definitely recommend people to buy this product if they have acne prone/oily skin since it will really refreshen your face and it will be like removing all the dirt. It also does not dry your skin out makes it feel really soft.
