Might Not Be The Best For Me.. Help?!

Holaaaa!

I've been using the St. Ives green tea scrub for about a month or two. The first week I thought it was working great, and helping with my acne. Actually, the smell was pretty nice! Though now I'm just not so sure that the green tea scrub is right for me and my skin type. I have semi-oily, sensitive skin (it gets pretty dry when using the wrong product), and moderate-seveare acne, and it's just not getting any better! I also have a lot of blackheads now, since starting the product - at least, more than I used to have. I thought about maybe using the St. ives green tea cleanser, and just use the scrub once a week or something like that. I've gone to the derm and was given this moisturizer stuff and some pills (which were useless, since I can't swallow them), and the moisturizer just made my skin unbearably itchy, red, and flakey. I'm still asking for your help.

If you have the same sort of acne as me, and found a product that you think works, will you recommend it? That would be greatly appreciated! Or any tips and such would be helpful as well (: Thanks!

I have used St.Ives green tea and it worked pretty well but not enough to clear my acne. You should not use it everyday because more of an exfoliator than a cleanser. I recommend Vanicream for oily and dry skin just because I have read a lot of oily skin users raving about it too and I have dry skin but it works pretty well in moisturizing my face. I hope that helps. :D

Are you still using the St. ives green tea scrub? I do use it everyday, twice a day, and I'm still not seeing results. And Vanicream is like a moisturizer? I may have to look into it! Thanks! :)
