St Ives Apricot Blemish Fighting Scrub Review

I have yet another lovely review for you this week and I'll be sharing my own thoughts on my favourite exfoliator, the St Ives Apricot Blemish Fighting Scrub. I bought this over a week ago now when I decided to take full advantage of the free delivery from Superdrug's website.

A few years ago I bought the St Ives Apricot Invigorating Scrub and I absolutely loved it so when I came across the Blemish Fighting scrub I knew that I had to buy it. This scrub is made for oily/blemish prone skin which is perfect for me as I have oily skin and I am extremely prone to breakouts, boo! If only I had perfect skin.

The very first time I used this I noticed an immediate difference, my skin was incredibly soft and I could barely notice my pores. It also made me feel quite refreshed and clean which was wonderful. I noticed that after using this my makeup glides on effortlessly leaving my face looking flawless which I absolutely love. I have to admit my skin is the best it has ever been since using this exfoliator.

In the past I have tried many scrubs that were way too abrasive and this scrub is just the opposite, it's extremely gentle on the skin and includes 100% natural exfoliants. It also includes salicylic acid which is very well known to help fight breakouts. Some scrubs have quite a chemical type smell but luckily this doesn't, it smells like juicy apricots which is lovely.

On the back of the packaging it says that you can use it 3 to 4 times a week but I prefer not to, I use it between 1 to 2 days a week as I don't like to exfoliate my face too often.
It also includes instructions on the back for use:

1. Wet the face
2. Dispense product onto your fingertips
3. Gently massage onto the face 
4. Rinse with water

I have to admit that I haven't noticed a huge difference to my skin completely, it hasn't cleared my skin up but it does a good job of getting rid of the dead skin cells. You can buy this scrub in many supermarkets and drugstores and it retails for about £3.99 which is a great price.

Overall, I absolutely love this scrub, it may not have cleared my blemishes but I'm so pleased with the difference it's made to my skin. I am not too bothered about the fact that it hasn't cleared my skin as I have other products for that but I am so impressed with the results and I will be buying this again once I've ran out of product.

Have you tried the St Ives Blemish Fighting Scrub?
