My Experience with St. Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub:

We all are well aware of St. Ives products that suits almost every skin tone.  I am also a die-hard fan of St. Ives Apricot Scrub like many of you.  I always remember Jomol whenever I read St. Ives anywhere. Thanks to Jomol who introduced us to the ravishing TBS tea tree range and St Ives. I am sincerely following TBS tea tree CTM routine and now I introduced other products in my daily skin care regime which are known to be 100% natural and free from harsh chemicals. Recently, while wandering in stores, I noticed this travel-sized green tea scrub and after reading the title, I was really tempted to give it a try. I just came home and applied it immediately on my face as I was hell exhausted and wanted some refreshment.  I just opened the tube and what was surprising that this particular scrub has very fine powdered sugar like granules which are really gentle on the skin and I feel like I am doing powdered sugar scrub 😀

The texture is quite thick like lotion and when you wash it away, it gives slight lather, like face wash which was not in the case of apricot scrub. I just smeared it onto my face and within 10 minutes, I washed it away after letting it dry, so I think it can be used both as a face pack and face wash. In fact, I am more impressed by this green tea scrub as it looks like mashed avocado and its heavenly scent is not at all bothering. The powdered granules are so mild, yet they effectively dry all zits on my face wow. In just one use, I noticed that a big bump near my chin had dried and my face was looking much clear and mattified with temporary minute pores. Even this mattified effect lasted for good 5-6 hours without applying my TBS tea tree pore minimiser.

I think I need its big bottle for myself now as I am hooked onto this product like TBS Tea Tree range.  I have been using this goodie every alternate day since 3-4 weeks and now I can’t imagine my day without this green tea scrub. It is really mild to be used everyday let me tell you, but I am currently using it miserly as I am still not able to find its new pack in the market and I do not want to finish it off so quick 😛 I know I am sounding crazy, but this is my current love, gals.  I strongly recommend all of you to try it out. I never noticed this goodie before and I am tracking its availability in stores now and as soon as I get it, I am definitely stocking it up for whole year as it is very hard to find St. Ives product in our stores, they are always out of stock.

Let’s sum up pros and cons:

Pros of St. Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub:

  • A natural product formulated without parabens and phthalates.
  • Available in affordable, travel pack and deluxe tube pack.
  • Heavenly-scented scrub.
  • The face scrub contains very fine, powdered sugar like granules which are very mild on skin.
  • This gives mattifying and clear skin from day one of usage.
  • It keeps zits at bay while soothing blemished and sensitive skin.
  • The mattifying oil free effect stays for good 5-6 hours.
  • It gives brightness and pore minimising effect as well on oily and blemished skin.
  • Not tested on animals.
  • Formulated without parabens, phthalates and oil free.

Cons of St. Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub:

  • As of now, none.

I am loving it even more than apricot scrub as that one seems a little more granular and harsh on skin while massaging, but this green tea scrub is so mild yet harsh on zits and blemishes. I give 10/5 to this green tea scrub. I am definitely getting its full pack if luck favors.  What are you waiting for gals?
