St. Ives Scrub Collection - Turn Up the Glow ?


Who doesn't love a good scrub? I for one enjoy nothing more than a good slather of scrub on my face and body, making sure no surface is left out. There's a certain satisfaction about getting rid off dead skin cells and oil accumulated on the pores leaving it feeling soft and refreshed after. With that we take a look  at a collection of eco-friendly and microbeads-free face scrubs by St. Ives that caters to all skin types that comes in various flavors too. Let's see if this pampering routine is worth it's grainy goodness.


St. Ives Face Scrubs are eco-friendly and microbeads-free. The scrubs are made from walnut shell powder that is the gentle-yet-effective natural ingredient, allowing you to safely exfoliate your skin without leaving a harmful footprint behind. 

Radiant Skin Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub : Nothing much to rave about this scrub, other than it somehow reminds me of the liquid detergent. However, my mom did enjoy this a lot. She claims that it brightens up her skin tone. So if you have dull and uneven skin tone, you can probably give this a try. 

Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub : Smells divine ! Probably its my second favorite scrub after the Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub. I used to use the St. Ives Apricot Facial Wash back when and I enjoyed it a lot. Now this new Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub does remind me a lot about that old face wash, from its scent to how my skin feels after using it, which is SOFT & SQUEAKY CLEAN. 

Acne Control Scrub : Honestly, I don't see much different with this scrub. I still have acne and breakouts after using this. It pretty much works just like a standard scrub. 



Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub : Have been using this religiously on my nose and I can see improvement on my skin in terms of the appearance of white and blackheads. But it feels slightly harsh and tingly on the cheeks area. So I'll just use this on my T-zone area and go with the Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub and Mask on the rest of my face. 

Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub and Mask : Because this is a 2-in-1 scrub & mask, the texture is comparatively watery, unlike the rest. Of all the scrubs, I have to say I enjoyed using this the most because of its watery texture, it doesn't feel too harsh on my cheeks and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. 

Energizing Coconut & Coffee Scrub : Oh my god! If you are a fan of coffee, you'll definitely enjoy every moment you have with this scrub because it smells exactly like coffee. However, if you are like me who only enjoys the occasional coffee smell as you walk into a coffee shop, then the smell can be seriously overpowering. Not a fan tho. Other than the scent, it pretty much works like any scrub in making your skin feels clean and fresh.
