Review: St. Ive’s Apricot Scrub

18 Jul

This is a review on the tub version. A very debated product in the beauty world either you hate it or you love it.

Review: The first photo looks kinda nasty doesn’t it? But putting the photos aside I have used this product before but that one was for acne/blemish skin with salicylic acid. This jar is just the regular exfoliation, the apricot seeds are grounded quite well in this product compared with the one for acne/blemish skin. I found that the scrubbies for the acne/blemish one was quite harsh while the scrubbies in this one wasn’t as harsh and didn’t feel like I was rubbing my skin with sandpaper. Overall, a good exfoliator that isn’t too harsh and gets the job done.

Cost: tub = $4.99CDN for 500mL, squeeze tube = $3.99CDN for 250 mL

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those looking for a cheap exfoliator but for those searching for a softer type of exfoliator I would recommend the Biore Even Smoother Exfoliator.

Review: The Body Shop 3-in-1 Blue Corn Mask

6 Mar

Another long title…. when will there be short titles??

Review: The Body Shop has a good reputation of putting great products out on the market and for its dedication to finding materials from all over the world and keeping it all natural. This mask is made for people who have combination to oily skin. Since this mask is a 3-in-1 the tasks that this mask does is to draw out the impurities in the skin, exfoliate the skin and leave it nice looking at the end. The scent of this product has a really refreshing smell and I don’t exactly know where to place the scent. When I first put on this mask I looked like an alien! But putting that aside I felt it really take the impurities out of my skin. And when I got to the exfoliating portion and washed it all off my skin felt smoother and cleaner than it felt in ages! I found the mask a little harsh on my skin as it sucked out everything in my pores but the aftermath is having great skin so I have no complaints. Overall, a mask that really does its job and makes skin care a lot faster and easier.

Cost: $16.50CDN

Would I recommend this product?: I would recommend this product for those with oily/combination skin who don’t have time to exfoliate and put on a mask seperately. For those with dry skin The Body Shop does have a mask for you it’s called the Honey and Oats mask.
