Best Stuff Out There
March 2016
”I love this product. It is my favorite thing of all time. I have whiteheads on my nose and my face is oily so I tried every product out there to help and nothing worked until I saw this. I love that it has natural exfoliants, it leaves my skin soft and clean. I definitely have noticed that the size of my pores minimized. I have been using for several months and is my favorite face wash of all time.”

Everyone liked it.

The thing I remember the most about this scrub was that my high school crush highly recommended this brand. His mom apparently mistook it for a lotion before learning it wasn't. Anyway, I bought this scrub and started using this. My skin felt lovely after bathing. It did reduce the appearance of my acne scars and I was so happy using it. Apparently, SOMEONE felt same way because it disappeared from my bathroom one morning. T_T My dad was upset. He has oily skin, and huge pores (but very little wrinkles), and he says the scrub worked for him too (hahaha). He bought another one (yay!) and guarded it protectively.

A gentler version of the classic Apricot Scrub :)

This product was my most recent St. Ives purchase. It has less exfoliant beads compared to the classic St. Ives Apricot facial scrub, but is still effective in keeping blackheads and pimples at bay. It also leaves the skin soft and squeaky clean. Personally, I prefer the classic St. Ives scrub but if you have sensitive skin I recommend that you use this one instead since it is more gentle on the skin. :)

Minimize pores and breakouts

As a med student, I rarely get enough sleep and sometimes no sleep at all which causes my breakouts. It is essential to have something that can combat these breakouts and this product is perfect to reduce it plus it minimize pores. I use this right after cleansing my face. After using this, I can feel that my face became softer. I don't use this everyday because I don't want to over-exfoliate.

Reduces outbreaks

This scrub effectively cleanses the face from the dirt and makeup residue. I have noticed reduced pimple break outs upon using this. I love everything with salicylic acid because it helps me keep my pimple scars under control. It is a big help that I only get pimples whenever it is pms season because I easily get scars.

My skin loves this product so much aaah! I have tried other scrubs but I always seem to go back to this. I could definitely say that this is the one for me. It's actually so good as a makeup remover. I notice that after using this, it tends to tighten my skin a bit which I love the most about this product. This product is really good especially for those who has an oily skin.

Second love

While this may not be my holy grail face scrub anymore, it will always have a special place in my heart. This was one of the first skincare items I purchased a high school student a few years back. There was a lot of rave around it, there still is but Skinfood's Black Sugar Mask is just so FREAKING LOVELY. In a gist, St. Ives Apricot face scrub is a simple scrub that you NEED especially if you have those tiny white bumps on your face.
