St.Ives "Timeless skin" Apricot Scrub

I wont be exaggerating when i say that i have been using this forever.I have tried a few other brand but i have always come back to St Ives Apricot scrub.
 Name: St.Ives Timeless Skin Apricot Scrub
Weight: 6 oz/170g
Claims to be: Sulfate and Paraben free
Makeupalley.com rating: 3.6/5.0
Price: 285 Pkr
Availability: Easily available


I am a fan..... i really am but this is the first time i am trying this new packaging and formulation, and i must say i am not a happy customer.Where is the apricot exactly?? A lot of people complained that the St ives apricot scrub was too harsh but in my experience it did the job.One application per week was enough to keep pores clean .Now it is more like a watery lotion with few specks of apricot here and there.
I guess i am used to the old formula & this new version is really bugging me to no end.


This will work for (in my opinion):
  • People with sensitive skin.
  • People who want to use a scrub 3-4 times/week.


I have been trying it for a month or so.My skin is oily combination and i really need to exfoliate well around my nose and between my brows.And i don't feel like this product removes all the dead cells from that area.It works well enough on the rest of my face and my skin feels smooth after using it.If only i had normal skin ;-)

Till next time........
