OUT: St. Ives – Blemish and Blackhead Control Apricot Scrub

#parabenfree #phthalatfree


St. Ives says:

Blemish Fighting Clearing Apricot Scrub – Oil Free, with Salicylic Acid, Gently cleans pores and helps stop breakouts before they occur.

  • Oil Free with Salicylic Acid
  • Dermatologist Tested
  • 100% Natural Extracts
  • Formulated without Parabens and Phthalates

I say:

I used this for quite a while and I always had the impression that it actually does make my skin clear and prevent it from getting really bad breakouts. It smells nice and sweet, but not too intense. The particles in the scrub are rather big, but I feel that this really helped to unclog pores. From what I read online, St. Ives is not crueltyfree anymore, which is why I will look for an alternative.

I say:

It is a nice face wash with little I already bought it more than once and although I keep trying different products, this is definitely one that I can imagine purchasing again.
