Review:: St. Ives Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub

I’m all about scrubs, I like the way my face feels after using then and I have found them effective in combating my oily acne prone skin.   I have used the St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub for over ten years.  I have heard people say that the Apricot scrub is not good to use as the pieces are too big and harsh on your skin.  I have never had a problem and I personally like a “harsh” scrub, as you can feel it “working” so to speak.  I’m not a fan of scrubs where you have to search to find a scrubbie/bead.

I believe the Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange was added to the line in the last year and when I finished up my Apricot I decided to give this a try.  First off this smells A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!   The light citrus scent is very refreshing and a mood lifter for sure.  But we all know something can smell great and not be worth two cents once you try it (and vice versa!)  But I was not to be disappointed, it cleans and exfoliates too!

This has a more creamy texture compared to the Apricot scrub and therefore is not as harsh or “scrubbie”  (is that a word? if not I think it should be…)  Even though it is not as rough it still has exfoliating power and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.  This is a part of St. Ives Even and Bright line which claims to leave your skin brighter and more visibly even toned.

The newer packaging of St. Ives scrubs has an exfoliation factor on the back of the packaging.  This is listed as moderate, the apricot is deep and the Oatmeal (which I haven’t tried) is gentle.
