      I tried all sorts of different face washes and face scrubs. ¬†In particular I wanted to find something that suited my reasonably delicate skin that is prone to breakouts. ¬†Many of the products I tried irritated my skin or left it feeling dry and tight. Other products, specifically designed for breakouts actually stripped my skin or worse, discolored my hair! ¬†That is particularly frightening especially when I realized it wasn’t temporary! ¬† I had to let my hair grow out naturally.¬†

      It was at a point of almost giving up that I remembered that I used to use St Ives as a kid.  I had a look in the store and wad amazed that there were now a huge number or different St Ives facial scrubs for different skin

      types.  Last time I bought this, there was only one choice.  So after reading all the different descriptions, I went ahead and  bought the St Ives apricot facial scrub designed for blocked pores and gave it a go.  

      Wow! ¬†This stuff is really great. ¬†As a kid I thought it was good, but they have improved this product so much in the last few years. ¬†I now can’t say enough good things about it. ¬†

      I like the fact that the scrub is a reasonably solid paste that I squeeze out of the tube. ¬†As I rub the paste between my hands I can feel the little bits of apricot stone I the scrub, but it doesn’t feel harsh. ¬†The best way I can describe it is it feels ...

      • almost like very fine sand, but again, it feels softer than sand.

        When I rub the scrub on my face, I can feel a combination of creaminess and scrubbiness!  The creaminess feels like it is cleansing my skin.  The scrubbiness, however feels like it is cleaning deep down into every pore.

        More things I like about this. ¬†The smell is very light and there is no after smell after you finished washing. ¬†The consistency of the paste means that you can easily use this in the sink, in the shower or in the bath. ¬†¬†Because the paste is thick, I don’t lose any or drop any and therefore I don’t feel like I am wasting any.

        The scrub feels to me as if it is penetrating the pores in my face,

        however I don’t feel like it ever scrapes my face or scratches. ¬†It has the wonderful ability or exfoliating my face without being abrasive.

        When my face is dry, it feels so soft and smooth. ¬†I don’t have any dry patches or red patches and my face does not feel tight or overly cleaned. ¬†In fact, my face actually feels moisturized.

        In my opinion thi scrub is also extremely affordable.  In the grocery store, this is under $4 and lasts for ages.  However, there are frequently special offers that make it even cheaper.  I just hope that St Ives does not goband stop making this!

        The best thing about St Ives facial scrub??  My breakouts are less.  For that alone I will not be changing to another product any time soon.
