Do Buy: CVS (Beauty 360) is as good as the St.Ives Apricot Scrub
Our reviewers were so impressed with the CVS store brand version of the St.Ives Apricot face wash that we think they could potentially be made in the same factory! The store brand gets a 10 out of 10 in terms of texture, smell, and likeness.
We did find 2 difference in the ingredients panels, but we've determined that they aren't at all significant, even for sensitive skin! Just in case you want to know what they are:
1) the CVS version uses Decyl Glucoside whereas St.Ives uses Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate -- but Decyl Glucoside is considered a common replacement for Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate and is used baby shampoos according to Wikipedia.
2) Cetyl Alcohol is listed a little bit higher on the CVS version.
