St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

I can never imagine a face care/ skincare routine without a good scrub. I have used St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub long back (almost a year), liked it but not very much, since the beads were too soft for me. I want my scrub to be packed with beads/ particles, non abrasive ones but should be able to do exfoliation well. Recently on my visit to a store near by I spotted these scrubs on the shelves. I saw how the packaging has changed. There were 3 variants to choose from. New packaging looks vibrant and attractive.St. Ives fresh skin apricot scrub (7)St. Ives fresh skin apricot scrub (8)

What I love 

St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is packed with granules/ scrub particles and they do their job effectively. I didn’t find them abrasive. My feel looks and feels clean after using it. It has mild fruity scent which I love the most. I don’t like skincare products with intense deodorant alike scents.

I have dry skin and it doesn’t take away the moisture. My skin looks soft and feels moisturized. I use it twice a week though as per the brand using the same 3-4 times a week would bring better results, I don’t want to be that harsh on my skin!

The formula washes off easily without leaving a greasy or slippery feel behind. It doesn’t break me out.St. Ives fresh skin apricot scrub (6)Areas of Improvement

Availability. I tried to find it online (in India) and its not available on any of the sites. Also I am not sure if this brand would be available in stores every where.

Overall Thoughts

A great product formulated with natural ingredients. It exfoliates well without being harsh on the skin. I definitely see my skin looking smoother & softer after using St. Ives fresh skin apricot scrub. I will highly recommend St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub to those who want a non abrasive yet effective exfoliator/ scrub.
