I bought St. Ives Apricot Blemish & Blackhead control cleanser at my local supermarket some time ago and I must say I was really impressed. My skin was really stressed after about a year of poor care due to my laziness. However, the first time I cleansed my face with it my face looked instantly brighter and cleaner. I used the product twice a day (in the morning and at night) and I would wake up in the morning with less blemishes and more even skin. Unfortunately, I did not see much change when it came to my blackheads. The product moderately controlled my acne and kept oily skin at bay. After about a month or so, I was happy with my skin but I did not see any drastic changes. I then took a hiatus from my cleanser and began using a Mary Kay product which seemed to work okay. After seeing no changes in my skin, I went back to my Apricot cleanser with fantastic results. It was as if I was using the cleanser for the first time! I was surprised to find such a great inexpensive facial cleanser. I recommend anyone with mild/moderate acne to try the product.
