I have made St. Ives apricot scrub apart of my beauty routine for years. So today, I went to a hair store (getting cornrolls) and noticed that Queen Helene has an apricot scrub.

The sales girl was going on about how great this scrub was and how it really helps clear skin.  I was like, its apricot scrub,  I use it to take off my make-up. So I buy it...bring it home...BIG DIFFERENCE.

Have any of u used the two before? Am I the only one that has noticed the difference?

I use HQ mint julep scrub that followed by the mask makes my acne go away in a day.
 
I do love St. Ives

Yes St. Ives does seem to always work. Do you have any suggestions for puffiness under the eyes?

 
Thanks

I don't really have this problem but the few times when I do have puff eyes. Usually associate with crying (don't ask). I use Pep H, hemroid cream. It actually works!

Thanks for the advice. I read that some people say that it burns. Is that true does it burn or irrate your skin?

I read somewhere that if you freeze a spoon and apply the back under your eye for a few minutes it will help with puffiness
