The Best Facial Scrub? St. Ives Apricot Scrub

Hailed as one of the best facial scrubs, I just had to try St. Ives Blemish Free Apricot Scrub.
I purchased the tub almost a week ago and I've been using this twice a day: in the morning and evening. A tub of 10 oz or 283g is priced at Php 249 at Watsons and I think a tub can last you more than 2 months so it's worth it. They also sell a small tube of 1 oz or 28g for only Php 70, so if you'd like to try this product first, you can get that.

As can be seen in the photo, the exfoliation factor of this product is deep so don't expect this to be smooth. This product is not for those with very sensitive skin, instead, you can try other facial scrubs. Honestly, I prefer these types of scrubs since I feel like my dead skin is really getting removed unlike those scrubs which are too soft.

This product really smells good in my opinion. It doesn't smell like chemicals and it's not too harsh on my skin.

After using for a week, I noticed that my face felt really fresh and smooth. I think this product will help you if you are prone to acne since I haven't had any breakouts so far after using this product.

The Verdict
I highly recommend this product and would purchase it again. It made my skin acne free in a span of a week. I think it's worth it since a tub of 283g is only at Php 249 and I've felt like the tub is brand new since it didn't look used after a week of usage. A finger full of the product can be used on my whole face.

05/11/2020 Update:
I did a bit of research on this product recently and I no longer recommend it as it contains apricot seeds which are sharp and can cause microtears on your skin.


  1. My tita got me something like this and i used it for a week! I agree that it's really effective ♥ I also love the scent!

  2. So glad you've found the right facial scrub for you. I've tried the same brand for my body scrub needs and I love it as well. Will the facial scrub, too. Thanks for the recommendation.

  3. I used St. Ives products before including this one. It was so refreshing to the face. I loved how it leaves my face to be so smooth after washing. I also recommend this product.

  4. I used to use St. Ives Apricot Scrub yearsss ago but had trouble finding in the supermarktet where I lived! I guess they have more distributors now hehe. Might get one to try again!
