St. Ives Apricot Scrub
Advantages: Gorgeous natural smell, leaves skin baby soft and smooth!
Disadvantages: Perhaps a little too invigorating for those with very sensitive skin.
I've been using this exfoliating scrub for years now, and in my humble opinion, it really is the best one out there. I actually went though a phase a while back, where I decided that I wasn't trying enough new products, so I started buying loads of new and different stuff, to see how it worked for me. And the result: absolute nightmare! So, I've gone back to using this scrub, and haven't looked back since.
The packaging is bright and appealing, and a really nice size - it always lasts me a few months, which is perfect, because I'm lazy and can't always be bothered to nip down to the shops to get another one. Plus, the smell is absolutely gorgeous! It smells really apricoty (not a real word, I know!) but not overly so. Just really natural and lovely.
The great thing about this scrub, is that you don't even need to use a huge amount get really great results. Probably a little blob the size of a ten pence piece would be sufficient for anyone. The exfoliating beads themselves are fantastic! I've tried a lot of other exfoliators, but none of them actually exfoliate my skin enough - The little beads are way too tiny, and there really isn't enough of them. I step out of the shower and I'm always left feeling as though I need to wash my face again to get better results.
However, this scrub is thick and creamy and absolutely PACKED with little exfoliator beads, that really gives your skin a good scrub. It's definitely not for those with sensitive skin, but for me it's absolutely perfect. It leaves my skin so soft and smooth; after I've used it, it really feels like all the grimeyness and dead skin cells on my face have been stripped away and I'm left with totally babysoft skin! (I would like to point out, that I'm not THAT dirty - maybe I shouldn't have used the word grimey...ha!) But seriously, it leaves your skin so soft and smooth. Fantastic!
Summary: A beauty staple. I'll never go without it!
