Skin Care: St. Ives Timeless Skin Apricot Scrub Review

Hello everyone! Too much for the rantings last June, (that was just yesterday, i suppose) here's a left behind post which i finally got the time to finish. I maybe the last person in the blogosphere to make a review on this but still here goes...

St. Ives is a popular name in skin care brand due to its availability, fair price and quality.

I've used St. Ives Timeless Skin Apricot Scrub for several years now and it's really great for exfoliation. It definitely works for me, amazingly effective - it leaves my face smooth and so refreshed.  It doesn't dry my skin and doesn't break me out ever. I must say, an all-natural exfoliant within the scrub itself. Though, those tiny grains can be irritating however, it may depend on your skin type.

Sometimes, i also use it as a body scrub, definitely gives me that smooth feeling as well.
No redness, whatsoever.

Definitely YES.

Do I Recommend this product?
Yes give it a try, this is something like you really get what you paid for. For sensitive skin, give it a try by purchasing small tubes first.
