Made me break out like CRAZY. Will never use again.
I just bought this a few weeks ago and it's AWESOME. i've used tons of scrubs from lancome to biore but this is the perfect scrub i've been looking for. i have skin thats oily in the t-zone but normal otherwise, and prone to blackheads, so it works really well. IF YOU HAVE THIN OR DRY SKIN, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT. otherwise, its a great product for an amazingly cheap price.
this stuff burned my face! i would never buy it again. i am sad that i actually did buy it. it did not break me out at all, but it did make my face really hurt. not recommended at all.
if you're like me, Apricot Scrub was probably your first scrub when you were a teen. I picked this up at the drugstore thinking it was an improved version of the messy peach, plastic tub I used to have in the mid-90's. I was highly disappointed. The grains are coarser than ever, the cream base is greasy and made my skin break out, and it's tought to remove. I had to use a cleanser right after, followed by astringent to get the film off. Not recommended at all! It irritated my skin, it's greasy and the texture is just disgusting. 1 Star for fragrance since it's true to the apricrot scent and packaging since the tube makes it more hygienic.
I will never use this product again. Look elsewhere for a better scrub.
Nice on the body but BAAAAAAAAAAAAD for the face - it's too thick and grainy, and IMO it does more harm then it helps in that regard. I have no complaints with it as a body scrub (which is what it is specifically for - I think it tells you *not* to use it on your face), but I recently came across some sort of weird sponge in my house with a straw-like appearance that works just as well, if not better by being less messy and cheaper. I haven't touched the scrub since, even though it's cheap.
Inexpensive, good quality, nice feeling. Good to mix into skincare regimen if you're looking for inexpensive skincare product.
I like this product. It goes very smooth on your face, but it has big granules of apricot seed in it. I use it once every two days, great buy, cheap price. Not bad at all!!!
I used to use this years ago when I was still living in North America, I really miss it as it isn't sold here where I live now! At that time it worked really really really tremendously great for me, I used it every day, I was totally addicted especially to the smell! (Fortunately Lush's cleanser I don't know the name in English but in Spanish it's called Angel Skin, has a gentle scent that is faintly reminiscent of the St- Ives scrub I remember.) When I think about it I suppose that since it IS a scrub I guess it's not meant to be used every day but I had really oily dirty skin then so it worked great for me, made me look polished and radiant. It was sold in a plastic pump bottle in those days so very convenient to use too.
This stuff is way too harsh for me. The walnut shell or whatever is the exfoliating agent feels like rubbing gravel over my face. It's more scratchy than scrubs I buy for my FEET. Spend a little more money and get something good for your skin!
If you have very oily, tough (not sensitive), acne prone skin, then this a must for you! I use it everyday and it works wonders on my skin!
But if you have sensitive, dry skin, then stay away from this!!!
