St. Ives For My Sahara Skin

After a week in the desert my skin is starting to resemble the Sahara so when I was asked to try a new look St. Ives scrub it seemed like perfect timing. I have chosen the Invigorating version which claims it will gently exfoliate to reveal smooth, radiant skin. I used to be absolutely obsessed with the Blemish Fighting apricot scrub - you know the one! - but my skin has become dry and dull in recent months and I just don't think that's necessarily the right choice for me right now.

One thing that's always popular is all natural skincare. St. Ives Apricot facial scrubs contain 100% natural exfoliants, as well as apricot - obviously - which is proven to hydrate and nourish the skin. Often we opt for quick fix products that can be damaging to our skin long term, with St . Ives scrubs you are getting the same clean feeling without stripping your skin of the moisture it needs.

I am looking forward to seeing how the scrub works for my post-vacation skin issues and will be trialling the scrub for 7 days before I share my results. Another thing to mention is that I've been without my Clarisonic Mia for more than a week and I will not be using it for the duration of this trial in the interest of a fair 'before and after'.

You can currently buy this on offer for just £1.97 from Superdrug

What are your thoughts on the new St. Ives?

  1. I've used the Blemish fighting one for almost 2 years and is seriously the best scrub I've found.
    Have a great rest of your trip in Vegas! :) x

  2. beauticians say that st ives scrubs arent good..they do more damage than anything else as the scrubing particles arent round and it scratches the skin..i tried the other..blemish and youth something anti age and both dired my skin really bad..havent tried the NEW one tho :(

  3. Roxana is right. I am a beauty therapist and while I was studying I learned that in the long run these scrubs are not ideal. The pore is a very delicate structure and the ragged edges of the particles in these scrubs tear the opening and can cause enlarged pores. It's better to use an enzyme exfoliant or a scrub with synthetic round beads :)
