Product Review: St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub

This is the best stuff.

As someone with skin that tends to get flaky, I love exfoliating scrubs. I use them weekly at least – sometimes twice a week, depending on how my skin is feeling. I follow them up with a nice, deep moisturizing treatment. It leaves my skin feeling super supple and baby soft.

If you’ve tried many facial scrubs, you know how different they can be. This Green Tea Scrub from St. Ives is by far my favorite drug store brand scrub, and is one of my very favorites overall as well. It’s a must try for sure.

Some scrubs (like many apricot type scrubs) are too harsh and actually create little micro tears in your skin. Many sugar or salt based scrubs just kind of dissolve, and don’t feel like they really do anything. Before you can even do a couple circles on your face, they’ve already lost their ‘scrubby’ feeling.

The St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub is the perfect texture. It’s not too harsh and not too smooth. It has a soft, scrubby, yet comfortable texture. The little scrubbies feel almost bubbly against your skin.

Just gently work the product around your face in light, small, circular motions. The formula doesn’t lose it’s texture, so you get a good, thorough exfoliating treatment. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. We recommend following it up with your favorite serum and then a deep moisturizing treatment.

Besides how well it works, my next favorite thing about this product is the scent. It’s DELISH. A fresh, clean, sweet smelling scent.

You can also find it at Target, Walmart and most drugstores.
