St Ives Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub - Reviewed!

I have been changing up my skincare rountine a lot recently due to not being totally happy with the results I was getting from what I was using. I also realised that since getting my Clarisonic I haven't been using a face scrub in my routine. I decided to pick the St Ives Scrub up after hearing great things about all the scrubs they do.
St Ives are a brand that have been around for a very long time, my Mum even used to use their scrubs when she was a teenager. Each scrub they do works for a different skin type. I went for the Blemish Fighting one which is aimed at oily/blemish prone skin. I really like the packaging, simple and straight to the point! The scrub itself smells of sweet apricots which is very pleasant and not over powering.
As you can see the scrub is creamy with small grains it in which aren't too harsh. I like that this turns creamy the more you rub it in, you can almost tell when it's ready to wash it off. It is gentle but still feels like you are giving your skin a good clean. Even after just one use my skin felt so smooth and skin but it didn't feel dry or tight. I use the scrubs 2-3 times a week and I definitely think it is helping my skin stay clear of blemishes.I can see this being a staple in my skincare routine for a long time.

If you haven't tried the St Ives scrubs yet I would definitely recommend you do. They're very affordable and work very well. I like that they do a good range to work with different skin types too. This scrubs retails for £3.99 and is available at Boots and Superdrug. 

Have you tried any of the St Ives scrubs?
