I'm using two St.Ives products to help with my milia and to cleanse: Medicated Apricot Scrub or Oily/Acne Prone Skin (2% SA) and Apricot Radiance Mouster Rich Creme Cleanser. Here are pictures and descriptions:

New St. Ives® Apricot Radiance™ Moisture Rich Cream Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin deep cleans without drying. It is formulated with soap-free cleansers to clean skin and gentle microbeads to exfoliate and help skin utilize the formula's key ingredients.

Formulated with a unique blend of 3 patented moisturizers, including Moistureguardâ„¢, proven to replenish and retain skin's moisture

DO you think I could use both of these? Without irritaion? Should I use an extr mousterizer?

Thanks!

I want to exfoliate every day, but my skin doesnt do well with SA....I'll do it 4 times a week with a mousterizer. How does that sound?

And is irritation just dryness? Or peelng? What is irritation?

thanks!

I'm currently using the St. Ives Medicated SA 2% EVERYDAY and it seems to exfoliate well and gives my face a super clean, awesome to use everyday, JUST gently blend it on the skin and leave it for 3 mins or more if desired. DO NOT SCRUB!!!

When ready to wash off, i usually do this during a shower put my face under the shower and then i gently scrub off the scrub. I rinse about 2 times to get it all out and use a Toner to fully get it off my face.
