It's just an amazing product, I usually miss some of the lesser known products like St Ives and go for Clinique, Loreal etc. Some products from them are good and I still use boy St Ives has been a miracle product it's made my skin so clear and I usually get so much oil and blemishes.

I love the apricot one, totally buying it next time I'm at the shops! haven't used it since I was a teen.

IMO, quite a lot of the cheaper stuff is better.

But all mascaras must bow to Asian mascaras. It is known.

Zebra - no its not microbeady it's made from ground up apricot kernels to get the abrasive texture. It's lovely stuff!

It's really bad for your skin!!! Tiny bits of sharp, abrasive kernel rubbed into your skin shock

I love the apricot scrub, I've tried many different scrubs and always go back to this. I've been using it for 15 years now roughly!

I've used it for years, I absolutely adore it. The rough, ground up apricot kernel one is the best. I use it about once a week and my skin always feels soft and glowing.

No, its absolutely awful! Really harsh, literally rips into your skin. Has caused acne breakouts in lots of people. Horrible stuff.

I love this. It's the only scrub worth buying imo.

I love the apricot one but I only use it once in every few months because I forget and only do it when I really need it confused

Been using it for years, love it!

Why it is so bad ^

VladmirsPoutine Fri 26-Aug-16 17:19:29

What is the purpose of scrubs? Don't think I've ever used one but then again my routine is basically wash and go.

MiddleClassProblem Fri 26-Aug-16 17:39:49

I use it to sto I growing hairs after shaving as I'm a bit prone

Sparklesilverglitter Fri 26-Aug-16 17:45:31

I've used it for years, it really is the best

I agree exfoliating is harsh but sometimes necessary.

Another fan here

I've used it a couple of times a week for years and it makes my skin feel lovely

St Ives test on animals sad

DH uses st ives. I rarely use it now I have the Olay regenerist brush thing. So good.

YANBU but I find it ridiculously hard to get hold of here (central Scotland so not, you know, the back of beyond!)

I really like St Ives. Have a friend whose skin can't cope with exfoliation at all but mine really seems to benefit

My favourite is the Liz Earle scrub, smells lovely, isn't as harsh as St Ives and doesn't contain microbeads.
