We’ve all used it at least once in our lives and we all love to hate it or live to hate it or just love it or maybe just hate it. Whatever your relationship is with St. Ives Apricot Scrub I’m sure it’s been an interesting and entertaining journey. In recent news, St. Ives is actually being sued because of their popular and cult favorite Apricot Scrub TMZ reports.
According to TMZ, St. Ives has been hit with a lawsuit over their popular facial scrub because the walnut shells in the formula can cause serious skin damage (most of us knew that already)! Two users, Kaylee Browning and Sarah Basile, have filed a class-action suit against St. Ives stating that walnut shells in scrubs are unsuitable for use on facial skin. Although the label on the product claims “dermatologist tested” apparently St. Ives still doesn’t disclose that the product isn’t recommend by dermatologists.
I’ve definitely used the scrub myself but it is without a doubt pretty harsh. It’s a formula people either really love or really hate in my experience. What you think of the formula?
This lawsuit is only one in a long line of beauty lawsuits lately. EOS was recently sued as well stating that the balm causes rashes, blistering, and even bleeding. WEN was also sued recently stating the Cleansing Conditioner resulted in hair loss.
Phew! What a year for beauty right?
