I use this product at least twice a week and my skin looks flawless! It get's rid of blackheads, any dark spots that may appear on your face and it makes your skin feel really smooth!
I know lots of people are saying now that this stuff is horrible for your skin, but whatever, I can't live without it. I have great skin, and my boyfriend is always telling me how soft it is...well, here's my secret. Nothing exfoliates my skin like this does. I only use it once or twice a week and scrub gently. Afterward my face is baby-soft, even my nose, which can get very dry. It's also great for my keratosis pilaris; scrubbing with this has gotten my arms totally smooth and bump-free.
I really love this scrub! I've been using it for a while, about 8 months. I have combo skin- dry spots, oily t-zone, blackheads AND blemishes..I guess that's what being a teenager does to you. Anyway, I needed a scrub and the lady at the drugstore recommended this.
Upon using it, it makes you skin so soft and gets rid of oil! I have less blackheads and blemishes than I did a few months ago. It has a thick consistency and little grains in it and smells nice. It was also cheap.
However, this product is not perfect. It does not prevent blackheads or zits from appearing- it only gets rid of them. So it's pretty much a cycle, no blemishes, new blemishes, no blemishes and so on. Overall, I like the product because it makes my skin soft and fresh.
Not the best. Not my favorite.
My quick take says it all, not the best and certainly not my favorite. I have acne prone skin, the type when you know your pms is coming and your skin goes freakin bananas on you! Yeah, that...haha.
The grains are too soft. I don't feel like it is really cleaning my skin or picking up dirt from my face. The smell I do like it's not anything horrible but that is just my opinion on this product. You do not see major changes with this product, it is so so.
I recommend this to women/men who do not have terrible acne prone skin. The ones who have little blemishes here and there, yes this is for you.
As for myself, not so much!
I'm not sure what happened but I used to use St. Ive's Apricot scrub years and years ago and it worked fabulous. Forumla change? I don't know but it's not doing myself any justice!
smells horrible, soft grains
might work for you. didn't work for me. it smelt weird. my face didn't feel clean after using this. i just overall dont like this. the grain are not hard enough for me. so you may like it if thats wat you looking for
I have a combination skin... I get the occasinnal pimple usually a few days before my period so when I feel that pimple coming I just dab a bit of this on... Leave it on for a min or two and the pimple doesn't pop out it just dries up
And I use this every two days on my entire body
Ladies I HIGHLY recommend this for soft flawless skin all over ♡
Not using as a facial scrub, using as a body and foot scrub
As the chica stated below, this isn't the best for your skin. I learned about its potential dangers from a YT video that seemed pretty forthright and reliable. Instead of using as a face scrub, I've switched to using this as a body scrub. Its good for flaky feet, and dry skin that accumulates around the ankles, as well as little body touch ups. My only concern lies in how harsh this could be for a body exfoliant, instead of a facial exfoliant. I also use this to slough away any bits of body blemishes, and so far, its gentle enough for that.
This stuff is TERRIBLE for your skin. The "scrub" part consists of small apricot seed halves which cut into your skin, expanding your pores. Which will make a break out worse if use is stopped.
Amazing for oily skin
St. ives naturally takes all the oils out of my face! i love it. i dont recommend it if your skin is very dry to use it daily but it is great for getting rid of acne and sudden pimples.
Forever a fan
I been using this product for almost 6 years and i absolutely love it. This is a scrub i dont use everyday because it can be a little harsh for my skin so i tend to use it twice a week when i do my extended facial routine and it leaves my skin feeling so amazing and refreshing. It is very affordable and i dont think i will be giving this product up any time soon. I def. recommend it.
