I am not known for my brand loyalty, and I like trying new things. Also, I don't have faith in health and beauty products' claims beyond allowing me to meet basic standards of cleanliness. Still, I have bought this face wash more than once because it actually works well. The product says it will exfoliate gently, and it does. At least I think that's what it's doing--after washing my face, my skin feels significantly softer than usual. It's worth it, especially for the relatively low price.

It has been a long time since I have used St. Ives GENTLE Apricot Scrub. It is not easy to find. I have used it for a couple of weeks 3 x weekly and will continue to use it. It is an easy way to exfoloiate and takes no time at all. I wish I could find it in South Florida. Any ideas for me?

I've been trying to steer away from the more expensive brands that I'm accustomed too and I happened upon St. Ives Apricot Scrub, only this one was different. I have seen the other version of the scrub but it has Salicylic Acid in it which my face in not particularly fond of since I have extremely sensitive and dry skin. This one seemed more gentle, loving, and nourishing than the other version. So I decided to get it.

Ok, so of course I washed my face as soon as I got it ( I have those microscopic blackheads that I can see but my husband says he can't) and what a difference. I felt my face being smoothed over by those loving little walnut shells. OH and to those who say that walnut shells are bad. I did my research too, now they said that if the walnut shell powder is not ground properly than yes, it will hurt your skin. Also you shouldn't be scrubbing your face, allow the scrub to do the work for you....and trust me....it will!!!

Pros:
Works well with my dry sensitive skin
Exfoliated very well without irritating
Didn't dry out my skin or leave it reddened
Smells great, very very light fragrance, if at all

Cons:
Can become a bit abrasive if you're scrubbing too hard!!

Anyway, so yes, what a difference it made. I did feel a little tingly but I feel like I can include this into a once a week, or once every other week regimen since it's winter. I also followed it up with a little bit of St. Ives moisturizer to complete the deal. My face felt smooth, supple, hydrated, without being red or irritate. Thank you St. Ives for another wonderful product!!!! :)

I've used the St. Ives Apricot Scrub, both the gentle version as well as the regular version. I actually preferred the regular version as it provided a more robust abrasive action which I preferred. My skin is not particularly sensitive and I did feel that my skin was noticeably smoother to the touch after using the regualar scrub. The gentle scrub was not nearly as abrasive on my skin so would certainly be a better choice for someone with more sensitive skin.

However after I read the label, my opinion has changed about this product because one of the ingredients is Petrolatum.

It's almost ironic that this product which exfoliates your skin also contains Petrolatum, a hydrocarbon. Consequently using this product can actually plug up your pores with what is essentially oil. I did not personally experience this, but my wife did. She has very sensitive skin and frequently has a difficult time finding skin care products with proper ingredients that do not irritate her skin.

Much has been written about the potential evils of Petrolatum and I'd encourage you to Google it and do some research. You'll find, as I did, that it has possible cancer links, can inflame or cause acne flair-ups, and petrolatum has been found in breast cancer tissue.

Yikes.

I'm not trying to be an alarmist but I don't think I need to use a product containing Petrolatum when there are alternatives. I guess it's up to each person to determine whether Petrolatum is a reason to avoid this product or use it knowing that there might be some risks. I've elected to avoid products with Petrolatum whenever possible and convenient. In this case I'll not purchase this again.
