St. Ives Apricot Scrub

Share it Please
Cult classic?


St Ives Apricot Scrub has to be one of those products which I will always remember. The first exfoliator that springs to mind.

The St Ives Facebook was doing some free samples of this last year, so naturally I signed up. I wasn't expecting such a generous sample though! SWEET.

The product description says that it is gentle, but compared to the usual exfoliators I use, it really isn't. Little gritty bits of walnut shell are scratchier than powders after all! I have to say, I'm not one for rougher exfoliators on my face. However, I don't mind this as much, especially when my face is screaming, "LOOK! COMBINATION PERSON! HAHA!" to the world.

It is fantastic for getting those dry bits off which your flannel just won't get.

I also use this as a foot scrub as well. Normally the foot scrub of choice is soap and sugar, but the effort of going downstairs, going to the kitchen....yaawwnn...

A few weeks ago I borrowed some of this product from a friend, who had a tube with very different packaging, which makes me wonder if the reason for the samples was due to a relaunch? Needless to say, my skin did not react as kindly to it as the newer product. Maybe that was why I avoided St Ives as a teenager? The formula might have changed and be suitable for me now?

Well I have disregarded my opinions from my early teenage years to say that I now really enjoy this face scrub! I wouldn't use it every few days as the instructions suggest (as I do not trust my skin) but once a week, is a good refresher.

St Ives Apricot Scrub is £4.29 in Boots HERE

Have you changed your opinions of products over the years?

Everybody's gonna love today...
