The widely popular St. Ives Apricot Scrub is actually damaging your skin. The crushed walnut powder actually creates microscopic tears in the skin & can create long term damage. With this scrub being so abrasive, it can also leave you vulnerable to irritation & even worse, infection. More people have become aware of the concerning effects of this product, that the company is now facing a lawsuit. This just goes to show you shouldn’t just use what is popular, but to educate yourself on the products you choose. So if this is a product you currently are using, it's time to switch!
