Equate Apricot Scrub (St.Ives Apricot Scrub dupe) Review

Hello ♡ Today will be a quick review of the Equate Blemish Control Apricot Scrub. It is supposed to be a dupe for the St.Ives Apricot Scrub. I bought from Walmart for around three dollars and I thought I would tell you if this is a good dupe for the St.Ives Apricot Scrub.

Packaging is pretty basic and similar to the St.Ives one. The only difference is that this one has a lot more cluttered words and the St.Ives one has a more simple design. One other thing I notice is this seems to be a slightly thicker plastic making the scrub harder to come out, slightly. 

Formula and Performance

There is not much to say about this product to be honest. It is basically a scrub, just like all the rest. It uses sand as its abrasive ingredient. It is more abrasive than the St.Ives one and the one thing that really disappointed me was the smell of this product. It does not smell as pleasant as the St.Ives one

Final Verdict
I will not be purchasing this product again because I feel like the the St.Ives one is better in overall performance and smell. This product is like only $1-2 difference, which I find not a big deal. I will go back to the original.
