Do not use this product!

Here's a list of three things that are better for your skin than using ANY St. Ives Apricot Scrub.
1. using sandpaper as a washcloth
2. using hot sauce as suncream
3. using a cheese grater as an exfoliation tool.

Walnut shells are too abrasive for your skin. You can get rosacea from this product!!

Caused more acne, resulted in tight skin.

I would not recommend this product for anyone. The scrubbing part of the mixture was rough and scraped at my skin like a handful of gravel, even while trying to be gentle, and I believe was a key reason why my acne exploded after use. The scrub also dried my skin out where my face was left feeling incredibly tight and almost ready to crack if I moved too much. After washing off the scrub, my face looked notably more red than before.

HORRIBLE

Do not use any scrub containing walnut shells on your face, let alone acne-prone skin. It is too harsh of an exfoliant and will worsen your acne. The salicylic acid in this product does not offset the four other pore-clogging ingredients, let alone the microtears the walnut shell will leave on your poor skin. If you have this around, it is fine to use occasionally on the body, and especially feet, but please do not put this on your poor face!
