Description

Discover the Swiss secrets for healthy looking, smooth, radiant skin. Only St Ives captures the secret of naturally beautiful and healthy looking skin in this deep cleansing formula that gently exfoliates, removing dull, dead skin cells to instantly reveal smooth, radiant, healthy looking skin.
- Key Benefits:
• Apricot fruit extract
• Walnut shell powder
• Deeply cleans and exfoliates, instantly leaving skin smooth and glowing
• Instantly reveals skin’s natural radiance
• Made with 100% natural exfoliants like walnut shell powder
• Deep exfoliation factor

Directions

Squeeze a small sized amount of scrub onto your fingertips and massage onto damp skin. Spread in small circular motions, applying gentle pressure to wake your skin’s natural circulation. Work all over, right up to your hairline and onto the sides of your nose. When you’re done, rinse and pat dry with a clean towel.
Avoid getting into your eyes. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water.

I love this scrub. Easy to use it,. Has wonderful apricot scent. Perfect for sensitive skin, because it do not have big pieces and gently cleans the skin surface. Even gives moisture. Good value for money.

I was sadly disappointed by this product. The apricot fragrance is lovely, but the scrub is so abrasive that it left my face sore and blotchy.

Not the cheapest. The walnut shell powder is too abrasive for sensitive skin.

Simple but effective
Weakest points
Maybe a little to harsh
Summary
Given my skin this product is fine but I can see that it's probably far too harsh for most people. I like the St. Ives range and to be honest I mostly use it pre-shave to give but I do like the clean feeling using it.
