St. Ives Apricot Scrub has been a staple of my beauty routine for as long as I can remember. There are times where I like something gentle, but then there are other times were I love the feel of a good scrub after using my favorite apricot scrub. When I heard that St. Ives Scrub was getting a makeover, I wanted to see if it would still do the trick. To tell you the truth, I think I like it better than the original and they all now have 100% sulfate-free formula.
Although I mention the word scrub above, St. Ives has a way of exfoliating and being gentle at the same time. My face is not beat red when I am done but yet I feel a true clean. It feels amazing to exfoliate away the dry skin of summer - trust me your face will be glad you did.
The sulfate-free Scrub collection now includes:
- St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub
- St. Ives Timeless Skin Apricot Scrub
- St. Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub
- St. Ives Sensitive Skin Apricot Scrub
My new favorite is the St. Ives Timeless Skin Apricot Scrub. I love the scent and its gentle with a nice dose of AHA's (alpha hydroxy acid). Just make sure you use sunscreen while using any product with alpha hydroxy acid to avoid the possibility of sunburn.
Suggested retail price is $3.99 - $5.69
St. Ives Scrubs are available at select mass retailers, drugstores and supermarkets nationwide.
