St. Ives Apricot Scrub
Advantages: easy to use, smells nice, cleans well
I have combination skin on my face, so trying to find a good face wash or scrub can sometimes be a bit of a nightmare. I recently recieved a sample of St. Ives Apricot Scrub and thought I would give it a try. I have only heard good things about St. Ives and if it did not work well for me, I had not wasted any money as it was a free sample.
Inside the tube, the scrub is a biege colour with slightly darker scrubbing particles, which are almost the same colour of brown sugar. The scrub has a thick texture, which feels creamy and smooth to the touch. As soon as you open the tube you can smell a lovely, gentle smell of apricots, which seems just perfect, not too feint and not too strong either.
When I put this scrub on my face, I could feel the scrubbing particles, but they did not feel too harsh. You can definatley feel them working, and just a small blob of the scrub goes a long way, and my sample tube has lasted me 2 weeks so far, with use every other day. The scrub is easy to rinse off, and it leaves my skin looking, and feeling, beautiful.
My skin looks glowing straight away after use, and it is very soft and smooth to the touch. My face feels very clean and even though my skin is combination and has been known to be a nightmare, it looks beautiful after using this scrub. The apricot smell still gently lingers on the skin throughout the day too, which is quite a nice smell to be carrying with you.
My skin stays looking and feeling good after use too, the next day my skin is still great, and I use a normal, non exfoliating face wash on these days. I use this every other day, and my skin looks fantastic since I started using this. I have found that it does not dry out my face, or excacerbate oil production of any type. If only I had found this face scrub when I was an acne plagued teenager!!
Personally, I am very impressed with the face scrub, and I totally recommend it to anyone, whether they have problem skin or not. You can buy this scrub in quite a wide range of places, including, Boots, Superdrug, Large Supermarkets and online at places like Amazon etc. Prices vary depending on where you will buy it from, but Boots do have this on special offer every know and then, so this is worth keeping your eyes open for.
I believe this is great value for money, as it works well and it is long lasting. If you have not yet tried it, please do, as I do not think you will be disappointed. I give this face scrub a 5 out of 5 stars and I totally recommend it.
