There are four apricot scrubs in the St. Ives product range. All four scrubs contain 100% natural exfoliants, made from walnuts and corn kernels. The scrubs also contain apricot extract, which hydrates and nourishes skin.
The very popular scrubs, promise to deliver healthier looking, glowing skin within 7 days!
I have chosen to test the Invigorating Scrub over the course of the next week. I went and bought it in Superdrug, and by some complete luck it was on a 50% off offer! I will have a spare St Ives Apricot Invigorating Scrub, to send to one of you. So please leave a comment underneath, if you would like to try it, and as always – I will get my sister to randomly pick someone!
Invigorating Apricot Scrub – Recommended for Normal Skin
Dull skin will become radiant, as dead skin cells are removed. Result after 7 days should be smooth, glowing skin! Recommended for use 3 – 4 times a week.
Gentle Apricot Scrub – Recommended for Sensitive/Problem Skin
Suitable for everyday use. Contains soothing botanicals, micro beads and jojoba oil. By the end of the week skin should appear bright fresh and healthy.
Blemish Control Apricot Scrub – Recommended for Skin prone to Breakouts
Contains clarifying ingredients, which help to gently unclog pores, and help to prevent spots. Suitable for use 3-4 times a week. Just a recommendation from me, don’t scrub hard over painful spots or breakouts, always treat unhappy skin gently.
Firm and Renew Apricot Scrub – For older or more mature skins
This scrub, with gentle AHA, visibly tones and firms, revealing younger looking skin. Will help to improve the skin’s texture. With fine mineral crystals.
All of the apricot scrubs, are paraben, and phthalate free.
The way I would recommend using any of these scrubs, would be to cleanse, and then follow as a second step, with the St Ives scrub, rather than replacing your cleanser with it. It’s important to remove impurities, dirt and make up, for an exfoliator to do its job properly. I have not read that that is the correct way to use this anywhere, but it is definitely the way that I would suggest.
Instructions on the packaging are simply to moisten skin, and then to massage on with fingertips.
The St Ives products are available in Superdrug, Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, Sainsburys, and in other independent chemists in the UK.
Some of the scrubs are currently on offer in Superdrug. The ‘Firm and Renew Scrub’ is not currently on their website, but it was in the store today in Malvern, so it must just be out of stock on the website at the moment.
I will be writing a post in 7 days with my apricot scrub conclusions.
In the meantime, the scrubs are on such a good deal in Superdrug, either do the 7 day trial with me! Or feel free to wait, and see if my skin looks any more radiant by then!
The RRP of the scrubs is £5.10. But in Superdrug today, I paid just £1.97 for the Invigorating Scrub because of the special offer. I have added the link to it below!
