Quiông chồng Summary

St. Ives’ Blemish Control Apricot Scrub is just an average exfoliator in my opinion.

Bạn đang xem: St

Because it’s a drugstore product, I was very skeptical about the quality of this scrub. After testing it out, there were some things I liked and some things I didn’t.

As for the likes, you definitely can’t beat the price of this one.

It’s under $5.00, & it’s literally available everywhere.

So this is an okay option for those of you in a pinch or those who are financially limited lớn buying drugstore products.

The smell is also something I enjoyed about this hàng hóa. It’s very sweet and refreshing.

Now on lớn the not so good… the results were very mediocre.

This one is supposed to lớn help with acne, but I didn’t notice any improvement in my blemishes. It did help with some dry patches of skin, và my skin felt soft, but I was disappointed that it didn’t clear my skin.

It also dried my skin out after continual use due lớn the salicylic acid being a main ingredient.

So overall, it was a very average exfoliator and I ended up giving it 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Detailed Review:


St. Ives Apricot Scrub is a very thiông xã, light cream-colored scrub. The base of this hàng hóa is very smooth và has a lotion like texture khổng lồ it. You can definitely see và feel the walnut shell granules in this hàng hóa, which gives it a very gritty texture.

I have sầu mixed feeling about its thickness. The thiông chồng, gritty, lotion-lượt thích texture of this scrub makes the product very easy khổng lồ apply, but it’s difficult lớn rinse off.


I really lượt thích the smell of this scrub!

It has a very sweet apricot smell khổng lồ it.

The smell is very refreshing & makes the scrub enjoyable to lớn apply.

Application Process

St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub is directed for use 2-3 times daily.

Who has time for that??

I’d recommend using this only once a day because it can be a bit drying.

I personally only wash my face 1-2 times a day, so 2-3 times a day seems very excessive to me.

Many doctors will advise against washing your face 3 times a day due lớn the stripping your natural oils.

Anyway, lớn use this product apply a small amount to lớn clean skin và gently mát xa inkhổng lồ skin and then rinse.

Although the application of this hàng hóa is very simple, I found it difficult lớn completely rinse the sản phẩm off due to lớn its thichồng, creamy texture.

I had lớn spover a minute or two rinsing my face with warm water to lớn remove all the walnut particles.

Sometimes I found that didn’t even vị the triông xã và had to lớn wipe them off with a towel, which was really annoying.

Any Drying and/or Redness?

Although I didn’t experience any redness after using this sản phẩm I did find it to lớn be very rough.

The asymmetrical walnut shells used in this sản phẩm are very harsh on the skin and when paired with salicylic acid, left my skin very dry.

Salicylic acid alone is very drying so it’s extremely important to lớn use a good moisturizer after using this product.


The results of this product were very average.

Immediately after using this scrub, my skin soft, but it only did an okay job exfoliating my skin.

Although this sản phẩm made my skin feel soft, it didn’t bởi a great job in the “blemish control” department.

In fact, I didn’t notice a huge improvement in my acne. I was hoping it would help with some blackheads I had, but it didn’t.

I also found that after continual use the product was very drying.

I’d recommkết thúc limiting this products’ use to once a day or every other day, and wouldn’t recommkết thúc it to lớn anyone with sensitive sầu skin.


Overall, I actually lượt thích the ingredients in this one.

St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub uses 100% natural exfoliants và is sulfate & paraben miễn phí.

Although it can be a bit drying, I lượt thích that this sản phẩm includes salicylic acid (2%) to lớn help eliminate acne.

This scrub contains apricot extracts, which contain high levels of purifying carotenoids và antioxidants which are said to lớn help clean, polish & nourish the skin.
