There have been so many mixed reviews on the St. Ives Apricot Scrub so I thought I would give my own opinion on it as well since I have been using it for the last two months.
After reading some reviews, I did worry that this product would not be suitable for my face. It has been known to break people out and that was the last thing I needed! Seeing the price tag though, a reasonable £3.99 at Boots, I thought it was worth a try at least.
The scrub is pretty creamy and has exfoliating particles in it. It doesn't foam up when it is applied, which is pretty normal for a scrub. Application is easy- I use about a one pence coin sized amount and use my fingers to very lightly massage it into my skin. I make sure I am very gentle as I don't want to do any damage either.
I wash it off pretty quickly and as I usually use it in the shower, it gets everything off very easily. There are two types available and I use the one for oily/blemish prone skin.
I find that this scrub does not break me out and using it once weekly is more than enough. It is quite harsh which would probably be bad for the skin if it was used more than a couple of times in a week. Obviously, this varies depending on each individual depending on how sensitive our skin is.
I like that this scrub cleans my face so well. It gets rid of all the dirt and makes my skin feel smooth.
Overall, I would have to say that although I really like this scrub, I might consider trying other ones out in the future to see how they compare. Having said that, I like this one a lot and will continue to use it as well.
Have you tried it yet? What did you think?
