St. Ives Apricot Scrub - £4.29*
The Scrub comes in four different formulations; Invigorating for normal skin, Gentle for sensitive skin, Blemish Fighting for oily/blemish prone skin and Renew and Firm to restore the skins youthfulness. I've been having a lot of breakouts recently so I decided to go for the Naturally Clear, blemish fighting scrub.
The blemish fighting scrub gently and effectively lifts away surface oils and dirt to prevent blackheads and blemishes. It's oil free and contains salicylic acid an essential ingredient to stop those breakouts! It has a gorgeous apricot scent which isn't overpowering and always makes my skin feel refreshed and clean in the morning. You can feel the exfoliating beads getting right into your pores and the creamy formula leaves your skin feeling soft. I sometimes feel exfoliaters can be quite harsh on my skin but I can use this in the morning as well as at night as it's really gentle and doesn't leave my skin looking red. I've using this 3 to 4 times a week (as recommend) for about 5 weeks now and have definitely noticed a difference in my skin. I still get the occasional spot (who doesn't?) but my pores seem less visible and I haven't had as many blackheads around my t-zone.
After all these years, St. Ives Apricot Scrub is still a winner. I've really enjoyed using this scrub in my weekly skincare routine and can see myself repurchasing it in the future. Such a great product for under a fiver! What do you think, have you used it before?
