St Ives Scrubs

I’ve always been familiar with the St Ives brand as the makers of the purse-friendly apricot scrub and I think their exfoliator is one of those cult products that everyone has in their beauty cabinet.  I was aware that a few different variants of the scrub had been released over the past few years, but there’s also quite a few more choices than I was aware of.

The originals with the new Renew and Firm Scrub on the right. 

There’s the original scrub and the blemish-fighting alternative, but there’s also now a “Renew and Firm” version aimed at slightly less teenage skin, which contains alpha-hydroxy acid, thus making it both a chemical and mechanical exfoliator.  I really like the idea of this so I’ll definitely be trying it soon.

The Elements range. 

The other newbies in the range are the Elements products, which include an Olive Scrub, a Microdermabrasion treatment and a Warming Scrub.  I love treatments that warm as I do think they work well to open up the pores to ensure a deeper scrub, so this is another one that’s on my list.

The ingredients and natural exfoliators. 

As St Ives tend to fall into the lower end of the price bracket, it won’t cost a lot to try out their new offerings, so they’re definitely worth checking out.

Available at Superdrug and Tesco; Tesco currently have a promotion for 3 for 2 on St Ives products.
