That Shitty Apricot Scrub We All Owned In The 90s Is Being Sued

By Betch Du Jour

PSA: St. Ives Apricot Scrub is even more nefarious than you thought it originally was when you found it in your mom's bathroom cabinet and decided to use it because you were desperate. Even though it was covered in mildew. And from 1994.

Apparently two losers with too much time on their hands consumers filed a class-action lawsuit against Unilever (who owns the St. Ives brand) claiming that the product is “unfit to be sold or used as a facial scrub” and “completely worthless.”

If only you could sue other things (people) for being "completely worthless."

Here's the gist: Some dermatologists and exfoliant enthusiasts report that the walnut shell powder within the scrub actually tears holes in your skin and can lead to infection and, even worse than death, premature aging.

In response, St. Ives said, "We can say that for over 30 years, consumers have loved and trusted the St. Ives brand to refresh and revitalize their skin. We are proud to be America’s top facial scrub brand and stand by our dermatologist tested formula.”

Honestly, kind of sounds like they hired Donald Trump to write the statement and then just took out words like "SAD!" and "NICE!" and "TITS!"

In other news, someone alert Gigi Hadid.
