St. Ives Apricot Scrub (Blemish Control) Review

Blackheads started coming out after my first curiosity facial treatment. For those who have virgin and yet flawless face, don't ever try facial. And if you have started undergoing facial, you should do cleaning every month or every other month.

This is what I'm struggling now--to find alternatives so I wouldn't have to go to facial every month. I've read that facial treatment will make my skin more sensitive and I can get diseases if tools used are not properly cleaned nor sterilized.

I love facial scrub. It is a treat for my face. But remember, don't use scrub everyday. Use it twice or thrice a week. I tried few and now loving St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish Control. There are variants to choose from depending on what your skin needs but all of these are with apricot.

What are apricots??


APRICOTS are known to contain one of the highest levels of carotenoids (think vitamin A) and super-effective antioxidants. All of this natural power might seem, well, too powerful, but they are actually quite gentle and nourishing and they help make fresher, more nourished skin beautifully possible.

Pogi Points:

1. It does control the production of blackheads.

2. I like how it controls oil.

3. Inexpensive. Thanks to St. Ives for having a small tube that can be used as a tester for first timers.

4. I feel fresh after using this. Like there is no dirt on my face.

5. Smells good, but it reminds me more of an acne treatment smell.

6. Has natural ingredients.


1. Scrub beads are big (like guava seed) so for those people who have sensitive skin, just gently massage this on your face. Though I like how it feels when the beads touch my face 'coz I think it removes my blackheads.

If you can see, it is just a pea size but full of beads.

2. If you have allergies in apricot, you can't use this. It will just give you breakouts.

3. Not for people who have dry skin. It will make your face more dry.


I will give St. ives Apricot Scrub (Blemish Control) a PERFECT POGI POINTS 5/5 ✓ :)

Mr. Pogi says:

This is perfect for people with normal, combination and oily skin type. I would highly recommend this if you have minimal blackheads or blemishes. I don't know if this will work if you are acne prone (If this work on you, please comment below.) For those who want to try, why not buy the small tube first. Nothing to lose. :)

I would definitely re-purchase this product and definitely in big tube. :)
