Spring time is renaissance time, it’s time to renew things, thoughts, start a new life…and give your skin an extra boost by scrubbing it! It’s the perfect time to get rid of dead skin cells, dry skin, patches that you had in the winter. Of course I like using scrub throughout the whole year but if you have never tried it, now is the time! So today I’ll be reviewing the favorite scrub of many Youtube beauty blogger and gurus: St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub!

I bought mine this summer and it looked like this:

It was a 170g (6 oz) tube. They changed the packaging a bit so now St. Ives Apricot Scrub looks like this:

There is 150ml of product in it now.

St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub: Product Description

St Ives Invigorating Apricot Facial Scrub. Uk’s No. 1 Scrub Brand captures the secrets of naturally beautiful and healthy looking skin. This cleansing formula gently exfoliates, removing dull, dead skin to reveal smooth, radiant, healthy looking skin.

I bought it because so many people were completely crazy about this scrub! Actually we were in Hong Kong at the time and I saw it at Sasa, I know it’s not really a ‘normal’ place to buy this scrub and everyone buys the cute Asian stuff at Sasa when they get there but oh well it’s me, I saw this scrub and I decided that I have to have it right now!

I normally use St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub when I’m under the shower: it’s a quick way to freshen up my skin and remove dead skin cells. I like doing it in the morning so that my skin feels fresh throughout the whole day!

My Opinion:

The first thing that I loved about this scrub was the fragrance: it smelled like apricot or peach pit, it’s very nice and fresh! The scrub didn’t hurt my very sensitive skin at all, it was very delicate and yet my skin felt like reborn! It was like it was baby skin, I wanted to touch it! I love the result a lot, I like using this scrub around 2 or 3 times a week and the result that it gives me is just wonderful! On top of all that, the price is very nice, it’s not an expensive product so it’s my absolute must have now!

Overall Note: A.

Packaging: 10/10; Effect: 10/10; Texture: 10/10; Fragrance: 10/10.

Where to Buy:

Boots, Superdrug, Amazon, Sasa

I also decided to add something new into my blog: from now on, I will try to post short videos for each of my reviews with a little demonstration of the product. Because that’s what I’ve been missing with other reviews that I read online and I thought it might be handy! So here is St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub:

I’ll post these videos on my Youtube channel but under unlisted category! So that way it will not bother people in their subscriptions feeds and just the people who are interested in these particular products will be able to view these videos!
