Acne Skin Care Products: St. Ives Apricot Scrub

Updated on September 12, 2009

There are many acne skin care products that claim to preform miracles when it comes to getting rid of acne. However, few of these acne skin care products are worth the money. I have tried many products to get rid of my acne. I have tried natural methods and many store-bought products. A few things have worked for me. The latest acne skin care product that I tried, thanks to a friend's advice, was the St. Ives Apricot Scrub.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub

When I went to the store, I was confronted with two different types of St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I decided to try the type that claimed it was meant for treating acne. I didn't have many pimples at the time due to a previous acne treatment (link at bottom of page), but I did want to get rid of them. I bought the scrub for about $5, and it was worth every penny. I use this acne skin care product every morning. St. Ives Apricot Scrub is very easy to apply, and it smells great. All you have to do is wash your face, massage it with the scrub for 60 seconds, then wash the scrub off. Its that simple. I thought it would take about a month for this acne skin care product to get rid of my acne. I was wrong. In fact, I began to see results on the same day I applied it. I noticed that the swelling decreased dramatically. Furthermore, the redness dissapeared. One of the aspects of pimples that makes them so unattractive is their redness. Once this is gone, you will feel much more comfortable with your appearance. Plus, it only takes a few more days before the pimples completely disappear. I suggest that no matter how severe your particular case of acne is, you buy this acne skin care product. It has worked wonders for me and will no doubt do the same for you!

Another Success Story

This YouTube video goes to show that I am not the only one who has had success with this acne skin care product. I can't say that it will definitely work for you, but I am saying it's definitely worth a try. If it doesn't get rid of your acne, I am sure it will get rid of the redness. There's nothing to lose (aside from $5 of course). If you want to read about the other acne skin care products that have worked for me, just click on the link below. Good luck it your fight against acne!

      I had totally forgotten about this product - I suffer from adult acne (special lol) and have trouble finding products that actually work. Thanks so much for reminding me about this scrub - I'm off to get some right away!

      mzoghori: Great comment. Scrubbing too hard can actually irritate your skin and cause more acne. I appreciate your suggestion.

      I would to say that while using exfoliant products to get rid of acne, do not scrub hard on your skin since it won't take away the acne imediately. Rub gently and keep yourself as dry as possible since moisture can easily bring about acne.
