Product Description

St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub deep cleans to leave skin healthy and refreshed. This mild formula is 100 percent sulfate free, and contains natural ingredients that purify and exfoliate for a radiant complexion. By gently removing excess dirt and oil, this scrub lets skin's natural radiance shine through.
All-Natural Exfoliants and Moisturizers

This scrub gets its cleansing power from 100 percent natural apricot extract, corn kernel meal, walnut shell powder, and glycerin. These ingredients work together to reveal a healthy, radiant complexion. Apricots contain high levels of purifying carotenoids (like Vitamin A) and anti-oxidants to gently nourish and moisturize skin. Glycerin further replenishes moisture so skin feels soft and smooth. Corn kernel meal comes directly from dried corn and is a gentle but powerful exfoliant that promotes cell turnover and regeneration for softer, brighter skin. Walnuts have a hard shell that once ground serves as another all-natural, effective exfoliant.

Sulfate-Free and Hypoallergenic

Designed to be gentle and non-irritating, St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is free of sulfates and paraben. Its creamy formula is also oil-free, non-comedogenic (so it won't cause breakouts), and dermatologist tested, making it a great choice for all skin types.

Easy to Use

This scrub is easy to use. Squeeze a small amount in the palm of your hand or directly on to fingertips and massage on face with gentle, circular motions, using as much or as little pressure as you like. When you're done, the scrub rinses clean away to reveal cleaner, fresher skin. For best results, use three to four times per week.

Apricot Collection

St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is part of a complete collection of Apricot products that includes Blemish Control and Timeless Skin scrubs, as well as Smoothing Apricot Body Wash. Use this scrub along with the other products in this collection for bright, clear skin every day.

I just recently tried out this product because I started to get a few pimples due to the harsh winter weather. I was surprisingly very pleased with this scrub, it also had a nice smell as well. Even though it is a scrub, it wasn't very rough or harsh on my skin. The next day my mini breakout was practically gone. I absolutely love this product and can see why it was an Allure beauty winner. It's definitely worth it. The packaging says that it should only be used about 3-4 times a week, and I'd say that's just the right amount of times for this product to be used. I couldn't imagine using it everyday just because that might be too much, but it's great for special or occasional use. It was really cheap and I'm pretty sure it's available at any drugstore, I'd highly recommend it to anyone who needs a little spot treatment for their acne, or to just exfoliate once in a while. Overall, I'll definitely be buying this product again.

St. Ives Apricot Fresh Skin Scrub has been a regular in my skincare routine since I was a teenager. I notice a difference immediately after using, and no matter how many new products I try I always seem to come back to my old standby.

At the most, I recommend using this no more than twice a week. It can be a bit harsh for sensitive skin, but I never noticed any adverse effects when sticking to a twice-weekly application. The smell is noticeable but not unpleasant, and it washes easily away with lukewarm water. Plus, my skin immediately feels softer after using.

I'd recommend this scrub to anyone looking for an effective, deep cleansing scrub that won't break the bank. For less than the price of a latte, you can have soft, smooth skin - how can you beat that?

I love this scrub! I have been using it since I was a pre-teen. I remember I first purchased this product because I had really bad acne combined with eczema, and I was looking for something that can exfoliate my dead skin without drying it out. Fast forward a couple of years later, I still am purchasing this product! I no longer have acne, but I do have dry skin! I use this around once a week to exfoliate and I notice a big difference in my skin becoming more smooth. This stuff smells amazing as well! Will always recommend this product to anyone looking for a good face scrub!

Seriously one of the best low-budget scrubs out there! It's safe to use on your face (but NOT 3-4 times a week like the bottle says..that's WAY TOO MUCH!) one a week for a nice deep clean, and even on other body parts that need some exfoliation. It works really well on pores that need some good cleaning too.

My mother uses this regularly and she has dry skin. I use this and I have oily skin. Guess what...it works well for both of us! I even had my guy friends use this and they like it too! I would definitely recommend this for anyone who is in need of some exfoliation.

I love this scrub! I can only use it about 1x a week or else I will have some breakouts, but if I use it sparingly it is a strong scrub that will remove all the dead skin from my face, leaving it buttery smooth! I replace my normal face wash with this scrub, then continue with my normal skin care routine after, making sure to moisturize well! This is a very tough scrub though, and the granules will remove the dead skin but this might be too rough for those with sensitive skin.

Not only is the St. Ives Apricot Scub reasonably priced, but it’s just a great product. I do detour from the package instructions a bit in that my face is a little more than “damp” when I apply the scrub. I do not scrub hard but I have very sensitive skin so the extra water helps the product to glide on my face better avoiding hypersensitivity which could cause me more acne.

With a fresh scent this scrub is a staple of skin care and a must for that youthful glow we all want!

My mom had recommend this product for me to use because she had used it when she was my age and my mom literally used nothing but this and has never had. Pimple her entire life basically like maybe 2 or 3 but I've never ever seen my mom with one and she sometimes sleeps with her makeup on so I tried it and it worked amazimg but I don't use it anymore because for me I don't really use scrubs alot like I love them but I don't use then as much as I used to

This product honestly made my skin breakout. I’m surprised it has such great reviews because the formula isn’t great either. It’s so grainy that when scrubbing my face I could feel it being so rough even when I’m extremely gentle. The graininess causes micro tears on the skin which can easily attract bacteria in. I don’t recommend this at all there are better products out there that can benefit your skin instead of hurt it.

This is my absolute favorite face wash ever! I have very sensitive, combination, acne prone skin. It took me years to recognize the holy grail that this stuff is and I will never look back, especially considering how cheap it is! It's exfoliating and has Salicylic Acid that makes it strong enough to fight and prevent breakouts, but it's gentle enough for me to use every day. I use it every night after I remove my makeup.

Do you use this in your everyday routine or just once in a while to exfoliate?
