St. Ives Apricot Scrub

Hey guys. So I bought the St. Ives Apricot Scrub today from Duane Reade because recently I've heard so much about it. There are actually 3 versions of this scrub; one for sensitive skin, one for oily/acne prone skin and one for all skin types. The one I purchased and will be reviewing was the one for all skin types.

If you're not used to exfoliating scrubs, this one may feel a bit harsh because of the fine sand-like granules which is what allows this product to work so well. The fine granules allow for better removal of dead skin cells and other build-up which causes skin to look dull and unhealthy. If you find that it is painful to use, try not using as much pressure. The apricot extracts enable the product to clean deeply into pores and remove the dirt and oil which causes breakouts and blackheads. It is dermatologist tested and non-irritating.

After using this product for the first time, I was amazed at how smooth my skin was. My skin was soft and smooth and I noticed a significant difference in the way my skin felt. After using the St. Ives Apricot Scrub, my skin did not feel tight or dry. This scrub instantly changed the way my skin felt. My skin now feels light and soft to the touch. If your skin dries out easily it may be a good idea to use the one made for sensitive skin. This inexpensive scrub priced at $4.99 (even cheaper at Wal-Mart) is a must have in anyone's skin care regimen.

This product also has a very pleasant fruity smell. The smell can be described as mildly sweet. It's not too overpowering but it is still noticeable. Before I even opened the cap, I could smell the light airy scent.

On the back of the 6oz tube that I bought, St. Ives boasts of pure Swiss glacial water, Swiss botanicals and 100% natural exfoliants. " Only St. Ives captures these secrets in this deep cleansing formula with 100% natural exfoliants that gently exfoliates, removing dull, dead skin cells to instantly reveal smooth, visibly healthy skin."

This product also has also been awarded the Allure Readers Choice Award.
