The Best Drugstore Scrub

In my life, I've been fortunate enough to try a variety of high-end face washes, and yet, I still swear by CVS' finest: St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub.


For people who maintain busy lives, whose days consist of sweaty workouts, and hours in the office or classroom, a deep facial cleaning is a vital step to be completed before the day's end.

St. Ives is a reliable and cheap way to exfoliate deep within your pores and remove the day's dirt. It leaves your skin feeling truly naked, without being too harsh or rough. Not to mention, it's incredibly easy to access. St. Ives is carried by just about every drug/grocery store, and for a reasonable price. In addition, this face wash is made of 100% natural ingredients and is oil-free, a plus for anyone who suffers from skin imbalance.

Perhaps the thing that I love the most about this scrub, aside from its effects and price, is its texture. Don't get me wrong-- smooth cleansers are important and effective, but when it comes to deep cleaning, there is nothing better than a good, beaded scrub.
