Yeah the St. Ives Apricot Scrub is what made my neck and jawline break out. Then I started on the Retin A which made it worse but its now slowly getting better. Needless to say, I'm not very happy with that scrub.

You probably have sensitive skin, that's why it might have been too harsh. Try something milder like the Dermalogica Microfoliant, expensive, but long-lasting and maybe the most gentle one out there. Hope this helps some!

I used to use St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub every day. Boy was I stupid. It made my skin so oily and rough. I would never touch it again. Anyone thinking that this product may be causing excess oil and not helping their acne I suggest you stop using it and try something that is not an exfoliant at all. Gentle really is the best way to go.
