Let’s cut to the chase here. You really, really don’t want dead skin cells lingering around any longer than they have to—not only can they lead to a dull complexion, but clogged pores and blemishes (no fun!). But choosing the right exfoliator is on par with picking the right jeans: it can be difficult and exhausting, but once you’ve found your perfect match, it’s downright heavenly.

It’s important you find the best beauty products for your budget, and sometimes, big-ticket skincare items just aren’t worth their weight. The only way to know if you should forego drugstore beauty and spending the extra money? Try them out for week each, of course! Don’t worry though, I did the dirty—er, cleansing—work for you. Click through to see how St. Ives Apricot Scrub matched up against its more expensive counterpart. The results will probably shock you.
