Review/Photos: St. Ives Apricot Scrub

What's your holy grail scrub? I think I just found mine. St. Ives Apricot Scrub is my current favorite facial scrub. It's one of those inexpensive face products that works amazing! For $4.99, it's able to gently smooth out my skin and make it feel soft and supple. I love it. I remember I used it a lot back in my college years. I'm glad to be re-united with it again.

Read on for my thoughts...

Here's what you need to know...

  • St. Ive's Apricot Scrub is a facial scrub that supposed to invigorates and smooths the skin
  • Oil-Free
  • 100% Glutten Free
  • 100% Paraben-Free 
  • Main ingredients are Apricot oil, corn kernel meal, and ground walnut shells 
  • Use 3-4X a week for deep exfoliation
  • $4.99 at your local drugstore

I've been using it ever since I got it from my Total Beauty Mystery Collection and I'm loving it. Just as the product promised, it was able to invigorate and smooth my skin. It feels fresh, clean and smooth. However, I find the ground walnut sheels and corn kernel meal a bit abrasive, so I only use it 3x a week and I only use a little bit (pea size). I will definitely purchase it once I'm finished.

How to:

Simply get a pea size amount on your finger and massage it all over your wet face. A little bit goes a long away for me. I like to massage around my nose and my cheeks where I usually get blackheads and whiteheads.

  1. I've used this scrub for years, since I was a kid! I'll say that it is not my favorite one, there are others I love a bit more, but they are more expensive, so I always have this on hand, since it's affordable and sometimes my budget can't accomodate a splurge :)

    I'd say my very favorite is Michael Todd's Charcoal Jojoba clears my pores and is less abrasive. :) But the St. Ives works just fine, as well! :)
