Why don't you recommend St Ives Apricot scrub for face? I tried it and hated it, it made me break out like crazy, but I always thought I was an anomaly because it has such a cult following and it usually gets such great reviews online. Is it actually bad for your skin??
everyone who says it’s great for their skin is talking out of their ass. name me an esthetician or dermatologist that talks that shit up and i’ll name you an esthetician that is delusional and prolly getting paid up the nose to talk it up. the hype around it is absurd. the beads are way too rough and large for your skin and it causes microtears and it’s just a crappy cleanser all around. those plastic beads in exfoliators including st ives are also really bad for the environment. they’re made of the same material as your plastic grocery bags. you’re literally rubbing tiny holes in your skin with plastic bag material. like…… pls chill. and when you wash those plastic beads down and they eventually get dumped into the ocean, fish eat them….. everything about them is stupid. There are bills trying to be passed to ban them in some states in the US actually.
Anyway yeah it’s a shitty product and yeah some people might use it and not have any ill effects but that doesn’t mean it’s actually good it just means they have a very tough epidermis and good for them.
