Scrubs - St. Ives - St. Ives Apricot Scrub with Whitening Properties review

Scrub is of thick and creamy texture which has tiny apricot scrub granules in it.It has this strong Vick’s like fragrance which is so relaxing.Infact it is kind of addictive for me.

Apricot granules are  big enough and great to exfoliate the skin however if you have sensitive skin then it might not suit you.

I like the way the scrub removes dead skin off and make it looks healthy.Regular use of the scrub removes tanning and inspite of being creamy it doesn’t break me out.

It comes  in a big tube and as I use this scrub on whole of my body and that is why  it finishes off with in one and half month max.I love to use it on my feet and elbows it makes them so soft :D:D

Ingredients of st.Ives has always been in question.It has all sort of Methyl paraben, Ethyl Paraben and SLS  that is why I keep shifting to Fab India scrubs in between or any other according to my mood ::D:D

St.Ives Apricot whitening scrub ingredients

This scrub is hard to resist an some times I go overboard it.It makes me actually feel that my dead skin has been removed.It soften skins ::D:D which almost every scrub do but yes it helps in keeping white heads and black heads at bay too if used two or three times a week.

Easy to carry around and doesn’t make me feel greasy .

Will I recommend it to others – Apricot scrub might be little too abrasive for sensitive skin however oily skin  will surely love it.
