The Apricot facial scrub by St. Ives has many fans, however I cannot count myself as one of them. I have tried this scrub three times over the past six years. Every time I hope to like this drugstore find but end up pitching it (any suggestions for left over facial scrub?) or using it on my hands or winter feet.
The apricot seeds are large and excessively rough on my skin. Something in the formula causes my semi-sensitive skin to breakout massively. Even after a thorough rinse with water, I end up with large scabs in my eyebrows (ick) that develop within two days and then the hair in my eyebrows falls out in those patches (double ICK!) (reference my earlier post about Ferro’s mineral makeup to help even out my skin).
Hopefully this time, I have finally learned my lesson not to try this face scrub again. Are there any readers with similar experience, or do you love this product?
St. Ives Apricot Scrub, Gentle For Sensitive Skin is available at Drugstore.com for $3.99.
