St. Ives Apricot Scrub Renew and Firm

Hello Everyone,

Today, I am reviewing the St. Ives Apricot Scrub Renew and Firm. I got it for my mother and needless to say, tried it on myself too.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub Renew and Firm

Price:

Got it for about Rs. 200 around a year ago for a quantity of 170 gm.

Packaging:

Standard St. Ives flip cap, plastic tube.

cap

Product Description:

This apricot scrub with gentle alpha hydroxy, visibly tones and firms, revealing younger-looking skin.

Complete Ingredients:

I would like to mention that it has SLS, but why??!!

Ingredients

The corn kernel meal makes for the larger, rounded and rubbery granules. The walnut granules are finely milled.

My Take on St. Ives Apricot Scrub Renew and Firm:

The scrub is really gentle. As you can see from the swatch, the granules are really fine, not at all scratchy. Leaves the skin soft, moisturized and clean (remember SLS??).  I prefer heavyduty scrubs for my dry/combination/normal skin, so this is definitely not for me, but for mature skin, its perfect!!

  • Gentle, not abrasive.
  • Good value for money, a little goes a long way.
  • Leaves skin smooth and moisturized.
  • Excellent for mature skin.
  • Does leave a glow (as all scrubs are supposed to).

Why You Should Skip St. Ives Apricot Scrub Renew and Firm?

  • It is not fully natural (contains SLS).
  • If you like heavyduty scrubs like I do, this is not for you.

Will I Repurchase St. Ives Apricot Scrub Renew and Firm?

Yes, for my mummy and naani (and will steal from them to alternate in between my heavyduty scrubs when I feel like).
