|| st ives apricot scrub blemish fighting £3.99- boots/superdrug ||
st ives apricot cleanser was the first skincare product my mum ever bought me when i was 11 years old. i loved the grown up feeling of washing my face with it every night but when it ran out i moved on to other products and for some reason i've never gone back to it. when i spotted this whilst house sitting for a friend i just had to give it a try especially after hearing such rave reviews!
the exfoliating pieces are all natural and are nice and coarse, not so much that they feel damaging but just enough for you to really feel the cleansing effects. this particular variation of the scrub is for oily/blemish prone skin and as such is oil free and contains salicylic acid. i like to use this on my t zone and my chin, the areas where i most get blemishes. i really do find that my skin feel so much cleaner after use and the scent is just divine! this is definitely worth all the praise it receives! as far as 'budget' skincare goes this has to be one of my favourites.
have you tried st ives? what do you use to keep your skin feeling fresh?
