St. Ives skin removal face scrub!

AdvantagesVery thorough, leaves skin feeling soft and smooth

DisadvantagesQuite painful to use, takes a while for skin to calm afterwards

"I've suffered with bouts of acne rosacea since the age of 17 (I'm now 23), and although my condition has finally gone I couldn't have done it without a few brilliant products, and this is one of them. I only ever had the breakouts on my chin but they were sore, red, itchy and unsightly and would turn up on my skin about twice a month. I have tried many other face scrubs but have found them to be too gentle, so when I picked up St. Ives Blemish ..." Read review

Blemish-control? NOT!

Advantagesgood price, doesn't dry out skin, smooths skin, nice smell + texture

Disadvantagesnot quick to use, doesn't get rid of blemishes that well

"...shops. It has the massive ST IVES logo on it, and APRICOT SCRUB written below. You really can't miss it! **What it claims to do** 100% natural exfoliants and Salicylic Acid remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells to fight blemishes, revealing clearer looking skin. They say it is hypo-allergenic and that the formula helps to remove unnecessary oil, and clean away blemishes. They say it won't dry out your skin, and it is suitable for people with sensitive ..."

Say hello to fresh feeling skin

AdvantagesYou can feel the dirt being lifted away

DisadvantagesNot a huge difference after 7 days

"I saw an advert for the new St. Ives range of face cleansers and exfoliators on the television and was attracted by the claim that after 7 days of use, skin would feel noticeably healthier. I was even more pleased when I went down to Superdrug and there was an introductory offer on all the products! I paid £1.99 for a 150ml tube of the scrub (it normally costs £2.99) as I was attracted by the bright white bottle. I thought that made the product ..." Read review

Dead Skin Be Gone!

AdvantagesSkin looked fresher after first use

DisadvantagesNone

"Although I don't have a huge amount of spots exactly, my skin could never be described as being clear either.I have to say though, it looked a lot clearer after this! Blemish Control Apricot Scrub comes in a 150 ml white tube with blue writing and a picture of some apricots. Not the most exciting of packages, makes it look more like something your gran would buy to be honest. But put your plain package prejudices aside, because this product is such ..." Read review

I love this scrub!

Advantagesgreat for oily skin

Disadvantagesnone

"Ok so this is a face scrub but it is meant to be gentle enough for day to day use. If you want to buy a 150ml tube it costs around £4.00 which I think is reasonable. I know that it is called an apricot scrub but I wouldn't say it really smells of apricot or indeed any fruit. The blurb on the back say it contains more than 85% naturally derived ingredients, including Swiss glacial water and Swiss botanicals which sounds pretty impressive I think. The ..." Read review

St Ives Apricot Scrub, Blemish Control

AdvantagesIt worked, Feels Amazing

DisadvantagesNone for me

"I picked up this product after a sudden out burst of bad skin. I generally have quite oily skin but all of a sudden, I got these disgusting sort of black heads which look as though they are trapped under the skin. I have been using this product for about ten days now and they are nearly all gone plus my skins looks very freshed faced and all for under £3!!!! It can make your face quite red but it calms down ater a couple of minutes. Its great ..." Read review

Not one of St. Ives's best products

AdvantagesSoft, clean skin

DisadvantagesCan be harsh and scratchy

"I decided to try this product because a friend of mine uses it and she thinks it's great. Reviews that I have read of this product are generally quite positive and an advert I saw said that it was the no.1 selling scrub in the UK. I also liked the idea of using a product with more natural ingredients and was pleased to find out that St. Ives does not test on animals :-). I bought the product from Superdrug where I found that it was on a special offer ..." Read review

Try this for soft, blemish-free skin

AdvantagesDoes what it says it will, skin feels really clean afterwards

DisadvantagesCan be drying, not often in stock at my local supermarket !

"This is one of the few face washes/exfoliators I've found that does exactly what it says it will and doesn't make my skin feel tight or greasy afterwards. Pros are: - It actually does control blemishes, or at least dries them out and helps get rid of them. I'm also quite sure it helps to heal coldsores when I get them as well. I think it must dry them out too, and so they heal faster. If I get spots one day and wash my face with this scrub that ..." Read review

A perfect little scrubber

Advantagesdoes not dry the skin out but does gently exfoliate even 'mature' skin

Disadvantagesnone that I could discover, agrees with me where other scrubs did not

"The reliable thing about St Ives toiletries is that they actually do what they say they do, but they do it cheaper than many of the more expensive brands. I admit that I stock up on this pleasant apricot scrub when it is on BOGOF. Having said that I would willingly pay the going rate for it as it REALLY does work. It does have a very subtle fruity aroma and is a nice 'peachy' colour, but what is really important is that is is not rough on your ..." Read review

Swiss Genius

AdvantagesCheap, effective, gentle enough to use every day

DisadvantagesNone

"I started buying this about 4 years ago as it said it controlled blemishes and that was what I needed at the time. It did what it said on the tube and stopped most of my spots coming, so I stopped using it and the spots came back! Lesson learnt I went and bought another tube, and now always make sure there is a tube in my bathroom It is a very gentle exfolient and it doesn't feel like it's doing much, but clearly it is! It really is gentle enough ..." Read review

Cleaner and Smoother Skin

AdvantagesSkin feels clean and smooth

DisadvantagesDoesnt really make a difference with blemishes

"I've had problematic skin since my early twenties and although the condition has impoved a great deal, I still have problems with blemishes. They take quite long to heal and disappear. Initially I used the plain Apricot scrub just to exfoliate but when I saw this one I thought I'd give it a try since it's supposed to help with blemish control. After using the scrub, my skin really does feel good - cleaner, softer and smoother. However, I didnt notice ..." Read review
