Good exfoliants/scrubs?

Recommended Posts

I have once tried the St.Ives Apricot Scrub, which teared my skin off like crazy.

Since then, I haven't been exfoliating my skin.

I just use Spectro Jel Cleanser and a moisturizer in the morning and at night.

I have combination skin and very mild acne (mostly on chin).

Do you recommend any good exfoliants/scrubs for me?

I don't like abrasive scrubs, I want exfoliants that actually do the job like prevent blackheads and take away dead skin.

Btw, are there cream exfoliants or peel-offs?

Yeah, do not use any scrubs with actual "pieces" in them if you know what I mean, like little beads. Try AHA or BHA. They are both chemical exfoliants and work very well. For AHA, optimal percentage would be about 5% to 10%. For BHA, 1-2% (all that is available).

I've considered that, but I can't find any AHA/BHA that are reasonable priced.

Since I'm a student, I can't afford anything above $10 for a exfoliant :(
