BBJ Longtime Fave: St. Ives Apricot Scrub

I was very popular in my college dorm freshman year once I introduced my dormmates to the virtues of St. Ides (LAWD that stuff was gross!) and, funnily enough, St. Ives. Specifically, St. Ives Apricot Scrub ($4), the Blemish & Blackhead Control one. It’s ridiculously economical at $4, one tube lasts months (use twice a week), and it leaves skin bright and glowing while infusing problem skin with 2% salicylic acid. Seriously. It was one of my gateway products. You know, one of the products that kicked off your lifelong addiction to beauty?

Fun tip: I’ve found it’s far more effective when employed sans water. I’ve long been a dry facial scrubber, but recently learned that my pal Dina applies the same tactic with body scrub, which produced PHENOM results when I took her advice last night.

Stars feel the same way about St. Ives Apricot Scrub! St. Ives recently set up the St. Ives Sensory Spa & Gallery on Main Street in Park City during the Sundance Film Festival and celebrities, including Elizabeth Reiser, Denise Richards (pictured above left) and Aubrey O’Day (pictured left), all mentioned they are fans of the product. St. Ives Consulting Aesthetician, Jillian Wright, performed facials at the spa with various St. Ives products.
Off topic, but speaking of Aubrey, doesn’t she look MUCH better at Sundance than she did at the Vitaminwater party this summer?

    I love this scrub as well and have used it for years. BUT I just bought a new tube at my local store and I feel like the formula has significantly changed. It feels like there are a lot fewer scrubbing particles and that they are more like round beads than sharp little scrubbies. I am extremely disappointed. Am I imagining it??
