Guest Reviewer Needed - St. Ives Apricot Scrub


I recently purchased this with the idea that it would be great for my skin, however after trying out a small amount I really feel it is too harsh for any skin type - having said this I would love to hear someone elses opinion of the product. So as I have used so little I would love for someone to trial out this product for me and give there option.

If you wish to review this whatever your skin type just leave me a comment below with your e-mail address.

I will choose someone on Thursday 25th March.

Here are my opinions on the product;-

From first appearances the scrub seemed quite natural and thick which is what first attracted me to the product, that and other beauty bloggers having good things to say about it.

However I was really surprised to find it for more like a micro-dermabrasion treatment as the scrub was so fine and coarse. Which does mean it leaves your skin really soft but also very red.

I really don't like the idea of using something so harsh on my face, not only does it pull at the skin but it can also be quite stripping and drying.

Anyway here are afew pictures of the results -






The only benefits of the scrub would be that it does leave your skin super soft, but my Garnier toner does that for me in a lot more soothing and gentle way, it also doesn't leave me with a red tomato face.

If you really don't mind using a harsh scrub on your face than maybe you are the reviewer for me!

Hello, i would like to be a guest reviewer if poss!
I recently bought the St Ives cream wash, thinking it had a foamy formula, which it doesnt, just a cream which washes off and i dont rate it much. Id like to try this and compare it as i prefer a wash with a bit more texture! I have normal to dry skin.

Sorry to hear that the product didn't work for you :-(
I'm more than sure that St. Ives has a version for sensitive skin.

I've used this product for a couple of years and I've never really had a problem with it.

That sucks, how one product works for some people and not for others.

Hope you can find something else that works for your skin :-)

Have a nice day!
