      Disadvantages

      A decent scrub that helps the skin

      I have always suffered with blackheads, so one of the lotions and potions in my bathroom cabinet is the Aapri Clarifying Blackhead Clearing Scrub.

      The scrub comes in a white plastic tube which contains 75ml of product. The scrub contains Salicylic acid, natural apricot kernel oil and sand like particles, which are advertised to 'help remove impurities and unblock pores. Regular use will help your skin look refreshed and make your skin less prone to spots.'

      The scrub is easily squeezed out of the tube, and it is thick white cream with dark sand sized exfoliating grains. A small amount is applied to wet skin (I use quite warm water to open my pores) and gently massaged in. I find that using the scrub a few times a week, in conjunction with the Aapri exfoliating facial scrub, works great at keeping my skin feeling soft and clean.

      As for removing blackheads, the scrub works well on blackheads and spots that are near the surface, or about to pop. However for deeper and more stubborn blackheads, it doesn't work so well, so regular application is needed to help bring these to the surface, and keep on top of any new ones coming. It is best to not use too much water, as once diluted, the scrub doesn't work so well, as the grains are further apart, and the cream part seems to dissolve.

      After using the scrub, my skin feels lovely and soft, although if I press hard, I do look a bit red for an hour or two after. I pat my skin dry after rinsing the scrub off, and allow my pores to close naturally, although cold water can help the process.

      The RRP for the scrub is £4.99, and it is available from Amazon for £2.99 plus 95p delivery. I purchase it from Superdrug or Poundland for the bargain price of £1. One tube lasts quite a while as only a small amount is needed for each application.
