St.Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish & Blackhead Control Scrub

The first one I want to talk about is one that I had a long while ago and it was abrasive on my skin, so when the tub ran out, I just didn't buy more and I ended up forgetting about it.

I saw someone talking about it on twitter and I figured that I would give it another go, I was new to skin care when I had purchased this and probably used it wrong anyways. The St.Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish & Blackhead Control scrub is what I use for my exfoliator currently. This time I just bought the tube of it. (Do they even make the tubs of it anymore?)


This is oil-free and has 2% salicylic acid in it. I do still find that it is abrasive on my skin, but not as bad as before. I don't use much of this, a little goes a long way. To be completely honest, I use to mix it with my Wash Off. You need to be careful when mixing face wash's because they could have chemicals in them that react to each other and it could cause a reaction, but nothing bad ever came of me mixing the two so I continued to do it.

This is paraben and phthalates free, so that is a plus. The exfoliating aspect of this is walnut shell and corn kernel meal. I really like this scrub, has it helped to control my blackheads and blemish's? Not really, not that I've noticed at least. It doesn't dry my face out at all, but its a really nice scrub. I don't use this often, maybe once a week because it is so abrasive on my skin, but I do really like it. I more than likely will re-purchase this ones I run out of it, which will actually be very soon!
