St.Ives Acne Control Apricot Scrub

I’ve used a bunch of face washes over the years for things like acne, oiliness, and flaky dry skin. Yes, I have all of that wrong on one face.πŸ™ˆ This one is honestly the best one I have found so far. It is a smooth creamy consistency with beads in it. I use this 2-3 times a week or more depending on how oily my face is.

Over the past month, I have used this religiously as my only face wash to see how well the results are. My face doesn’t flake anything like it did before and the oiliness around my nose has gone down completely. Now as far as acne goes I don’t have many breakouts now that I’m older, but after wearing makeup I usually break up no matter what face wash I use and I didn’t.

I have seen a major difference in my skin as far as dryness and the oiliness. I don’t have to constantly keep a moisturizer or lotion on me in order to keep the flakes gone. It wasn’t helping just covering up the problem. This scrub has completely gotten rid of the problem and I no longer have to constantly worry whether or not I have flakes all over my face anymore.

Though I have honestly noticed a difference in my skin while using this. As far as the ingredients go, it’s not completely natural. It does have some bad chemicals in it, but until I find something better I will continue to use it.


Water, Juglans regia (walnut) shell powder,Glyceryl Stearate SE, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Zea Mays (Corn) Kernel Meal, Cetyl Alcohol, Triethanolamine, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, Cocamidopropyl betaine, glyceryl stearate, peg-100 stearate, cetyl acetate, benzyl alcohol, Carbomer, ceteareth-20, acetylated lanolin Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, fragrance (parfum), Disodium EDTA, benzoic acid, sorbic acid, prunus, Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit Extract, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)

You can look these up on your own if you’d like to know what each is. I listed them so you could if you wanted. If you don’t mind the bad ingredients and just want a good scrub, then this is for you.
