SKINCARE SUNDAY: St-Ives Apricot scrub
I’ll be changing my skincare posts to Sundays. It’s always been my pampering and skincare day so it’s only right that I keep it accurate.
I know there’s a ton of skincare on the market. Some are pricier than others but it’s all about what works for your skin. I’ve never been the skincare hoarder type, I stick to what my skin likes.
I’ll never forget my mom putting me on to this 5$ hidden gem when I was 17. She had been using it for a while and loved it so she figured it could be a good solution for my teenager break outs and really bad pms. Although I’ve never had bad acne, everytime I pms or eat unhealthy my skin hates me (until this day). I was then hit with the motherly “you need to take better care of your skin” pep talk, I definitely took it to heart. This walnut shell powder and apricot fruit extract scrub made a HUGE difference for my skin and kept it smooth like butter even ten years later.
Here are the pros and cons
Removes dead skin
Smooth on skin (if you’re very sensitive, they also have a grapefruit scrub for radiant skin that has softer beads)
Can be found anywhere
Leaves skin glowing
Not 100% natural
Don't over scrub your face (3-4 times a week should be enough)
There's been some drama regarding this product but I've personally never had any issues with it or anyone in my surroundings
