Product Review: St. Ives Apricot Cleanser

It's very important to wash your face EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Whether you wear makeup or not, you accumulate A LOT of dirt from the air so it's crucial that you cleanse your skin.

I wash my face at least 3 times a day. Once in the morning, in the afternoon, and in the evening. My skin tends to get really oily so I like to wash it multiple times just to diminish any excess oil.

I use St. Ives Apricot Cleanser.


St. Ives Naturally Clear Blemish Fighting Apricot Cleanser

Deep cleans and fights blemishes without drying.

This cleanser, with natural microbeads and apricot extracts, controls oil and fights blemishes without over drying the skin.

I love apricot cleansers because it really feels like it clears my skin.
The tiny microbeads in the cleanser act as a scrub which takes off any dry skin and leaves my face soft. (like a baby's bottom)

You can also use this cleanser even if you have dry skin.
Apricots contain oil that helps hydrate so it'll be a perfect face wash for you.

The smell is great. It's very light and very much like an apricot scrub. ;)
It easily gets rid of makeup and any build up on my skin. Which is super awesome.

I hope you found this review somewhat helpful. Let me know how this product works for you.

  19. I started using the scrub in the summer. I use once a week since it's a little harsh, but it works great too! I love it and it keeps my skin really clean.
