I used this product for years. It's not that I didn't like it, it's just that once I stopped using it (I can't remember why I stopped) I didn't notice any difference in my skin. Nothing at all. I was convinced that I NEEDED to use this or I'd break out, but honestly, I don't think it did very much.
(That said, if you REALLY need a scrub, this one is cute and inexpensive and smells good and all who see it in your bathroom cabinet will gain a new respect for you as someone who knows their skincare because it's always rated highly in beauty magazines. So it might be worth it.)
I love Apricot Scub by St. Ives!! I have sensitive skin, so I used it a couple of days a week. But it gives you a clean, tingling sensation that really makes your skin breathe! It gets all the foundation and oils out of your pores so your skin feels fresh. It is exfoliating, which is why I used it a couple of days a week. I would also recommend using lotion afterwards, because it's very gritty and don't scrub too hard!
I really like this scrub. It smells great and leaves my skin feeling very soft.
One of my favorite facial washes. Right next to the Neutrogena transparent facial bar. It smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling smooth and flawless and it also leaves a good scent on my skin. The only thing that would make me like it more is if they had it in a bar form like the transparent facial bar. That way it would be easier to use when I wash my face in the mornings in my sink with out taking a shower.
Too rough on skin and my skin isn't sensitive
I use this stuff once in awhile when my skin gets really dry and flaky. It is really abrasive so you have to be careful but it gets the job done. I wouldn't try to do this as a daily thing, but I really do like it for once in awhile. It smells wonderful, it leaves my skin glowing, and my face feels really soft after I use it. It's super cheap and comes in an easy squeeze tube so you can get almost all of it out. I will continue to buy it, but I only need a tube a year, if that.
I've been using this product for years and years. My mother has always used it since I can ever remember. It may feel a little rough, but it really smooths your skin and removes all dry, flaky patches. I love using this around my nose where I get the most dryness. You just need to be careful that you don't get it around your eyes because it's a pain to remove, and the exfoliating bits are so rough that I don't see a good outcome there. There's something in this scrub that really softens the skin - other than the exfoliating. After I use this, my skin is gorgeous and glowing. Makeup applies super smooth and evenly after a good scrub with this stuff as well. I use it a couple times a week to help remove all the dead from my skin. I recommend it to anyone and everyone, no matter what skin type or ethnicity.
A great scrub for weekly use, way to rough to be used daily. It gets the job done of removing dead and dry skin and leaving skin feeling clean and smooth. I use this a few times a month when I notice dry flakes, and it helps so much. Be very gentle rubbing this in, and don't overuse it. A pea size goes a long way, and it will last you a long long time! I just wish the beads were a little more gentle and less abrasive.
I have this scrub in the sensitive formulation. I really enjoy this line of scrubs and like that they lather and you only need a small amount to cover your whole face (about the size of 2 peas for reference). It makes the cleaning more effective because it helps the beads glide around your face better. My face looks great after I use this stuff too, healthy and luminous. I would recommend this to every skin type, as they have so many different formulas for this product.
This product gave me scars along my jawline from regular usage over around a year. I initial;ly thought my shampoo was the problem, the scars kept on coming as I stopped using the shampoos, conditioners ... anything else I could think might be to blame.
But no, it's definitely this.
