My husband is actually the one that got me to first use this product. I've never consistently used facial scrubs, but a few months ago I decided to try an off-brand scrub I found for one dollar. We got it home and tried it and Vaughan was not impressed. I tried is St. Ives for comparison and even I could feel the difference. The dollar store knock-off didn't have nearly the scrubbing grains the St. Ives brand does, it felt more like lotion with a little bit of grit added.
The tub we're currently using is St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub.
