Hello beauties, I have yet another lovely review for you this week and I'll be sharing my own thoughts on my favourite exfoliator, the St Ives Apricot Blemish Fighting Scrub.I bought this over a week ago now when I decided to take full advantage of the free delivery from Superdrug's website.
A few years ago I bought the St Ives Apricot Invigorating Scrub and I absolutely loved it so when I came across the Blemish Fighting scrub I knew that I had to buy it.This scrub is made for oily/blemish prone skin which is perfect for me as I have oily skin and I am extremely prone to breakouts, boo! If only I had perfect skin.
The very first time I used this I noticed an immediate difference, my skin was incredibly soft and I could barely notice my pores.It also made me feel quite refreshed and clean which was wonderful.I noticed that after using this my makeup glides on effortlessly leaving my face looking flawless which I absolutely love.I have to admit my skin is the best it has ever been since using this exfoliator.
In the past I have tried many scrubs that were way too abrasive and this scrub is just the opposite, it's extremely gentle on the skin and includes 100% natural exfoliants.It also includes salicylic acid which is very well known to help fight breakouts.Some scrubs have quite a chemical type smell but luckily this doesn't, it smells like juicy apricots which is lovely. On the back of the packaging it says that you can use it 3 to 4 times a week but I prefer not to, I use it between 1 to 2 days a week as I don't like to exfoliate my face too often. It also includes instructions on the back for use:
1. Wet the face 2. Dispense product onto your fingertips 3. Gently massage onto the face 4. Rinse with water
I have to admit that I haven't noticed a huge difference to my skin completely, it hasn't cleared my skin up but it does a good job of getting rid of the dead skin cells. You can buy this scrub in many supermarkets and drugstores and it retails for about £3.99 which is a great price.
Overall, I absolutely love this scrub, it may not have cleared my blemishes but I'm so pleased with the difference it's made to my skin.I am not too bothered about the fact that it hasn't cleared my skin as I have other products for that but I am so impressed with the results and I will be buying this again once I've ran out of product. Have you tried the St Ives Blemish Fighting Scrub?
