Beauty and the budget: St. Ives Apricot scrub is a steal

Buying the perfect exfoliator for your skin can be hard, especially when you have combination skin -dry and oily. Most scrubs are either overly drying but affordable or perfect but expensive. But St. Ives Apricot scrub just happens to be the perfect balance between affordable and good.

On the St. Ives site, they advertise the scrub to be used for acne, blackheads and blemishes. While I don’t know how effective the scrub is on blemishes, it works magic on blackheads and acne. It has a nice, clean apricot smell that won’t irritate you, no matter how sensitive to scents you might be. It is also as I mentioned very affordable, it costs about 1,500 naira in most stores which is a steal compared to luxury brands which offer the same functions as the scrub.

Have you tried out the Apricot scrub before, or are you currently using it? How well do you like it? Let us know below.
