Im pondering on which scrub i should use on my face. The clean and clear blackhead clearing scrub or this new St ives blackhead & blemish controll apricot scrub.

Both are basically the same product with slightly different ingredients, although both have the active ingredient 2% Salycic Acid medication.

I have also noticed that the st Ives scrub is a little cheaper than clean and clears.

Responses to this post would be much appreciated!

Id go for the clean and clear one, mainly because i swear by their moisturizer, and the products i use from them have never been less than satisfactory. hope this helps!

Maybe you should choose on the basis of their names.

St Ives sounds a bit like ivy which can be itchy and itchy is bad when related to acne.

Clean and Clear sounds good to me... biggrin.gif

Well i have been using the st ives scrub for over a day now, i actually think it's pretty cool. The beads are a lot more smaller, defined and a light orange colour.

I feel it cleans my face a lot more better than the clean and clear scrub, and when i rinse it off, my face looks a whole lot brighter and less red compared to when i was using the clean and clear scrub.

The smell is pretty potent though, almost like a dental surgery smell, you know those mouthwashes u rinse with after ur done. Weird, but never the less this stuff seems grand.

I hate the size of the beads in the clean and clear scrub, they are big and dark blue, and so obvious!
