Review: St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub



Looks like I haven't done a product review for such a long time as I feel clueless what to start first. Anyway, today I will be reviewing one of the most-talk-about product which is St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub. I had this scrub since March this year and after using it for almost six months now, why not I share my verdicts about this product to you guys right? I remember how hard for me to have this scrub since it always sold out at my place but I can see there are available now especially with the new good looking packaging.

INGREDIENTS

Water (Aqua), Hydrated Silica, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Triethanolamine, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetyl Acetate, Glyceryl Stearate, Fragrance (Perfume), Polysorbate 60, Methylisothiazolinone, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Blue 1 (C1 42090), Red 4 (CI 14700), Red 33 (CI 17200), Yellow 5 (CI 19140).

DIRECTIONS

Clean the skin thoroughly before applying this product ● Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer and rinse thoroughly twice a week.

P/s: I know that the direction stated that to use it one to three times daily, but I do not recommend you guys to follow because scrubbing your face three times daily every single day can irritate your skin eventhough the scrub beads are tiny and the moderate factor is moderate, it still harsh for you to use every day. Just do not, okay? 






MY VERDICTS

The first thing I would like to mention is the scent. I truly love the green tea scent that this scrub has as it smells so good. The scent makes me want to eat it somehow but I know that I can't. The packaging is really nice and beautiful. I love the new version of this range too. The latest packaging makes it look more elegant and I'm sure a lot of people will buy it. As the product itself, I truly love it. It makes my skin feel so clean and smoother than before. The beads are so tiny to exfoliate your skin to the deep within and it doesn't hurt my skin at all. Since this range is more to blackhead concerns, I did noticed that it really remove some of my blackheads that had been clogged to the pores. In the product also stated that it has 1% of salicylic acid, which an active ingredient to treat acne. Just do not scrub when you have acne on the skin because when you scrubbing on the acne, it will make your acne appear more.

I think that is all I wanted to mention here. I really love this product and I would repurchase for the next tube in the future. I also recommend you guys to try it too especially if your concern is blackheads and acne-prone skin.



Have you tried this product? Do you love it?

    1. Its okay. I feel you, memang susah nak cari yang green tea punya, usually apricot yang banyak. Betul juga tu, BV kan stay Sarawak so mesti postage mahal. Hopefully BV dapat jumpa this product one day.
