St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub Review

Hey guys! Happy FRIDAY! I’m so excited, because my mom and I are going shopping after I get home from work!! 🙂 What are your fun weekend plans?
Anyway, I’m getting distracted. Here is today’s review.

This is the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub that I picked up towards the beginning of summer. If you remember I did a review on the Blemish Control version of this scrub. In that post, I told you about how much it dried out the skin on my chin, resulting in a beard of flaky skin. Hahaha. It still makes me laugh. This version did not have that effect. It definitely is perfect for removing dry skin without drying it out too much. I use it once a week or so. I really don’t see the need for doing it more than that. I just use it whenever I think about it, and my skin feels good. Because I don’t use it often, I just purchased the travel size.

There is a light, lotion-y, apricot scent to this. This is different from the Blemish Control version, where I couldn’t really detect any scent.

It isn’t too harsh. I love the way that it exfoliates without drying or irritating my skin. It makes my skin feel amazing, and it doesn’t leave any dry patches on my face.

Overall, I would recommend this over the Blemish Control version, especially if you don’t need the acne control. I feel that this is better because I don’t get overly dry from it, and I enjoy the scent of this one! If you have any other questions let me know in a comment below. Otherwise, enjoy your weekend!

I purchased this myself. All opinions are my own. No affiliate links. I’m not getting paid for this post.

  1. Good review! I love this scrub! I had an unusual patch of flaky, dry skin on my chin area that would not go away with my regular exfoliating facewash. But I picked up a travel size bottle of this St. Ives scrub from Target, and it cleared up the problem literally right away. I was impressed.
    As for my weekend plans – I’m buying a new sofa! Have fun shopping!
