Hello everyone. Let's start the week with a sneak peek of these facial scrubs from St. Ives. The apricot scrub from this brand was one of my first purchases when I first started with my skincare from twenty years ago. Back then, they only have just the apricot scrub. Now, they have a lot of other variants to cater to specific skincare concerns.

I stopped purchasing their scrubs a few years back as I have been made aware of the microbeads (microplastics) in their ingredients. They have reformulated their products to be "made with 100% natural exfoliants so I bought a few of them to try out. For a list of microbead-free products, see Microbead-Free-Products-Database.

St. Ives Energizing Coconut and Coffee Scrub - "Energize dull, tired skin with the smell of fresh coffee and deeply exfoliating 100% natural walnut shell powder in this face scrub. It will leave skin looking and feeling fresh.

This scrub really smelled like coffee when first opened and as a coffee lover, I was immediately drawn to it. The beads in this scrub is grittier so you get deeper exfoliation. I only use this on my face when I feel like my skin needs the extra scrubbing, otherwise I tend and prefer to use this scrub on my body.

St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub and Mask - "One part scrub, one part mask. Walnut shell powder gently buffs away dull skin when used as a face scrub. The calming properties of oatmeal inspired us to craft a scrub that can also be used as a face mask. VoilĂ , a 2-in-1 treat for your skin!"

This product can be used both as a scrub and mask and is the gentlest of the three. I like the light oatmeal smell of this scrub/mask. This is suitable for those that want some physical exfoliation but have sensitive skin. I find that this helps sooth irritation and redness.

St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea and Bamboo Scrub - "Salicylic acid and 100% natural walnut shell powder and bamboo powder packs a punch in this dermatologist-tested, blackhead-tackling green tea face scrub. It unclogs pores and calms redness for glowing, bump-free skin."

This has been my facial scrub for a week now, as I have been experiencing hormonal breakouts. So far, this has helped clear out and dry up my blemishes. The beads in this scrub is less gritty compared to the Coconut and Coffee Scrub. This gives me moderate exfoliation and is gentle enough to be used on the face daily.
