Description

Bye-bye blemishes! From America's #1 scrub brand*, St. Ives Apricot Acne Control Face Scrub contains 100% natural walnut shell powder to deeply exfoliate for glowing skin. The 2% salicylic acid in this scrub helps prevent acne and can also help tackle 'maskne' (acne caused by protective face masks). Adding this deep cleaning face scrub to your routine along with replacing and washing your protective face masks frequently are some ways to help combat 'maskne.' This scrub also contains apricot fruit extract, which is known to help skin feel super soft and smooth. Apricots are our thing. Our apricots come from sun-drenched California and North Africa. Our walnuts are grown in orchards in California and harvested in the fall where the shells are finely milled and polished, so they only exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin cells. Just the way we like it. This scrub is dermatologist tested, paraben free, non-comedogenic (not tending to cause blocked pores), and oil free. And it’s simple to use. Just squeeze a dime sized amount onto your fingertips and massage onto damp skin. Spread in small circular motions to wake your skin’s natural circulation. When you’re done, rinse and glow. For best results, use up to 3-4 times a week. St. Ives products are made with 100% natural moisturizers, exfoliants, and/or extracts to bring the joy of nature into our skin care products to give you soft, refreshed skin that glows. St. Ives does not test on animals anywhere in the world and is certified by PETA. When it comes to making you glow, St. believes that spending more time with nature can boost your happiness and have a serious de-stress effect of your mind, body and skin care.

I’ve used this since I was very young and I’ve never had acne until I stopped using this in my early 20s. I tried all the trendy products and expensive brands but all it did was irritate my skin and break me out. The expensive products gave me pores which I’ve never had. I decided to buy this and see how it goes. Hopefully my skin clears up after using this again

I've been using St.Ives for a while. I can't find the pink lemonade and mandarin one in stores anymore, which is a shame because that not only helped my acne, but also helped with general aging and fine lines. I found this again, and I've been using it every day.since then. This helps keep my oily skin at bay, clears up my acne, and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Other scrubs, from other drug stores brands to higher end brands, will irritate my sensitive skin, make it oilier, and cause my acne to flare up bad. Not this stuff! Plus, it gets deep in my pores to deliver salicylic acid, an acne fighting ingredient. I always come back to this because this scrub makes my skin look and feel amazing.

This used to be my go to face scrub when I was having a break out. I loved that it had a fruity smell rather than just being engulfed in nothing but chemical smells. The bottles always seemed to have the perfect amount in them to last a good chunk of time and I absolutely love the little scrubby beads that are in it!! My only complaint is that this seemed to be a 50/50 acne scrub. Sometimes it would take care of acne with a snap of your fingers while other times it didn’t do a single thing. Not sure if other has the same experience but I know for me it just didn’t always get the job done.

This is a must have for my skin routine. I always feel like I’ve gotten a facial after using it. I typically use a scrub twice a week and it leaves my skin so smooth. My job has a tendency to dry my skin out and this leaves it with I nice glow.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub has always had a spot on my shelf for the last 30 years. Its texture gives you a great in-depth cleaning with a smooth scent. I originally purchased this because if it’s affordability but then I kept buying it because it works so well. It’s part of my daily cleaning facial ritual.

Acne scrub is my 2-3 times a week use to help with my acne scars. The smell very pleasant and very safe to use. I’ve used 2 different kinds of St.Ives which is the apricot and matcha.

Been using this stuff since I was a teen!

I have been using this product since I was a teen. I stopped using it for a little while because my esthetician told me it was bad. My face got a ton of acne and was more dry patchy than usual (my normal skin type is dry and patchy) using other scrubs that cost a lot more... After a year of having such bad breakouts and just a terrible looking dry patchy complexion, I started using this scrub again. Most of my acne cleared up within a week. My skin was no longer patchy, just a little dry, but that's normal for me. Ditching this product for my skin was a bad idea! I have very sensitive skin and I have had no issues with this product hurting my skin or even being super red. All in all it is just such a great product! Whatever they are using in this works so well for acne it is unbelievable! Also, my skin actually glows and feels soft. I use it on my arms and back as well.

My go-to face wash, has some natural ingredients and is very affordable! Gets the job I need it to do, done!

Absolutely LOVE this face wash, this has been my go to for some years now! Some face washs dry my skin out to Sahara Desert standards (looking at you Cerave), making me desperate for moisturizer after a wash. I moisturize my face always after a wash anyway but this never has me RUNNING for the moisturizer immediately. Plus 100% natural exfoliating ingredients makes it all the better as I love as much natural as I can get within the budget that I can afford. Boyfriend is also a fan!

I love the smell of this product but it does tend to cause more break outs for me unfortunately. Most people, that’s not the case. Texture is very gritty and sandy. Great value for the money if your face needs this kind of wash. Mine does not.
