St. Ives give good scrubs. FACT. And its latest addition to its line of facial exfoliators is no exception. What strikes your first, as soon as you open the Green Tea Scrub ($9.99) is that it smells divine. So fresh and invigorating. And it's rich and creamy so the product doesn't slip off your hand before you've had the chance to use it!
It's a chemical and mechanical exfoliant so it combines the deep, pore-cleansing powers of salicylic acid with natural exfoliating beads for those who like to "feel" the product working. Due to the levels of salicylic acid it features (one percent), you can use the product daily, which comes in handy for people — like me — who always forget the last time they exfoliated. Was it yesterday? Was it two days ago? Was it four?? And as well as clearing skin, the scrub actually helps to reduce redness that's part and parcel of breakouts by harnessing the power of its hero ingredient, green tea.
Keep reading . . .At the product launch yesterday we were told that the oil-free St. Ives Green Tea range — the line-up also includes a non-comedogenic gel cleanser — is designed as a more mature blemish buster than teen ranges for adults who still suffer from breakouts. And at $9.99 each, the products won't break the bank so they're the perfect solution for anyone wanted to get rid of pesky pimples once and for all! Do you like the sound of the products? Will you try them?
