St. Ives Apricot Fresh Skin Scrub
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.
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.
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.
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.

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?
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 have very dry skin, and I've found by using this once a day, it helps to remove all of the dead dry skin from my face. If you have very dry skin like me, you have to use some sort of a moisturizer or serum on your skin afterwards though.
I used this a lot in high school - great smell, leaves skin smooth and radiant. But now that I'm close to my thirties, I actually find it too "rough" for my skin. Yes, it removes all the dead, flakey patches of skin, but I will pay for it the days following with redness, burning, and irritated skin. The scrubbing beads are a little too big and course for me - even if I massage slow and lightly, I still end up with an irritated face.
Once I found out that the reactions to products were due to dry, sensitive skin, I've had to remove a lot of favorites from my skincare regimen, including this one. Works great, but not if you have any type of skin sensitivity or conditions. I suggest it only be suited to normal or oily skin types.
