Ah yes....the common sugar scrub is hard to avoid in today's beauty market. Used possibly because its cheap, it is the worst thing you can scrub your face with. It was destroy your natural barrier of your skin. But, this specific scrub felt like glass shards on my face. It smells good, though.
Love this stuff! We always keep a tube in the shower. It can be found at most drug stores (we get it at our local grocery store) and it isn't too expensive. I use this whenever my skin gets flaky or clogged, and it totally makes my face smooth, soft, and refreshed. The "scrub" can be abrasive on sensitive skin, but I like it on dry skin or hard-to-reach ares like the sides of the nose. Great stuff.
Inexpensive and leaves your skin feeling clean without a residue. Certainly one of the best scrubs that I've ever used (and I've tried ones from all price ranges), and the one that I keep going back to.
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.
