Very thorough, leaves skin feeling soft and smooth

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...

Well to be quite honest, I've been a bit disappointed by the existing reviews on this product. This one is certainly going to be better than anything else you have ever seen before! I've really put a lot of time and effort into this, because I really want to show you a good review once and for...

You can feel the dirt being lifted away

Not 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...

“Dead Skin Be Gone!”

published 16/08/2005

Skin looked fresher after first use

None

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...

Soft, clean skin

Can 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...

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...

It worked, Feels Amazing

None 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...

“I love this scrub!”

published 03/10/2010

great for oily skin

none

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...

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...

“Swiss Genius”

published 29/04/2005

Cheap, effective, gentle enough to use every day

None

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...

“Cleaner and Smoother Skin”

published 01/12/2004

Skin feels clean and smooth

Doesnt 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...

My beautician told me this scrub is actually quite gentle. My skin definitely feels clean and smooth after using this product but unfortunately it did not get rid of my blemishes. I do prefer the smell of the Burt's Bees scrubs.
