Apart from CTM routine scrubbing is also very important for dry skin. Skin types like combination to dehydrated dry skin- which often acts weird depending on weather. I suffer from dry patches and flaky skin thorough out the year and therefore a proper exfoliation is very important to wash off those unwanted dead skin cells. St. Ives has other variants too but the most raved is-Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub.  As it has salicylic acid that controls and prevents further breakouts or abnormal zits.

The consistency is thick and super creamy, spread easily on skin. The apricot and walnut grains really works well on my sensitive skin, without being too harsh. This scrub is non- drying on my dry skin, alike other scrubs that tends to make my skin little stretchy and dry, this won’t. This Scrub is grainy (not harsh) and feels like a “Massage On My Face” 😀

It leaves my face feeling refreshed and my pores so clean. The product leave my skin feels so soft and smooth. It also prevents any blemishes that I often get on my T-zone areas mainly during summers. However, do not expect something miracle in one day after using this, It doesn’t cure blemishes or pimples 100% but it will definitely reduce and clean it gradually. St. Ives Apricot Scrub- Blemish Fighting- gives a deep clean effect by removing excess oil and dirt from skin after each wash. My dry sensitive skin never felt irritated while scrubbing, it gently cleans up all kind of dirt and oil accumulated on pores and the key ingredient – 2% salicylic acid helps preventing acne/pimples and blackheads/pigmentations. Overall I really enjoy using this product.
