******From my tumblr account curlsandblushingasian
How is everyone? yey, i’m back to tumblr! sorry for being on hiatus (hiatus? feeling korean actress? LOL..haha) …sembreak will soon be over, so i might as well write reviews before busy school starts.:)
Tadaaa!! Presenting the best facial scrub for me!!! St. Ives!
I’ve been using St. Ives apricot scrub since 2nd year college! It’s the best scrub for me. It works well so I am sticking with it! :D
Apricots contain powerful antioxidants that gently cleanse skin. Apricot oil is known to hydrate and nourish skin.
APRICOTS are known to contain one of the highest levels of carotenoids (think vitamin A) and super-effective antioxidants. All of this natural power might seem, well, too powerful, but they are actually quite gentle and nourishing and they help make fresher, more nourished skin beautifully possible.
CORN KERNEL MEAL is actually flour ground from dried corn. It’s a soft, but gently powerful all-natural exfoliant that promotes skin cell turnover and regeneration. Cornmeal makes softer-feeling, fresher skin possible.
WALNUT is known for its hard shell, but when it’s ground, it becomes an amazingly effective, all-natural exfoliant ingredient in our scrubs. Not only are walnuts plentiful on the planet, they also help newer, healthier skin come to the surface.
What I love?
- the beads, you can really feel it when you scruuuuub it on your face (but don’t scrub too hard! please^^)
- the smell is just fine
- makes skin clean/(clearer?^^) and smoother
- gentle on skin. provides good exfoliation for those who have sensitive skin. gentle enough to use everyday as what it claims.
- it’s not hard to find..go to the nearby drug stores or grocery stores! haha!:))
- tube packaging~~ooh hygienic :)
- non irritating and 100% natural extracts. Dermatologist tested!
- not tested on animals. does not contain animal ingredients
- formulated without parabens and phythalates 
- not really expensive
- it is even has an award: teen vogue reader’s choice beauty award winner :)
What I don’t like?
So what scrub are you using? If none, then you should try this! :)

*************************UPDATE: they updated their packaging and now I'm using the Fresh skin Apricot scrub which is almost the same with the Gentle one.
