Blackheads are one of the most annoying skin care issues, and the sad thing is that they often plague us till we’re well into adulthood. Thankfully, we have beauty skin care ranges like those from renowned brands such as St. Ives, to help us with this particular concern.
Founded over 25 years ago, St. Ives set out to create quality skin care products that use all-natural ingredients like coconut milk, apricot kernels, aloe vera, and berries to help skin look at its best without breaking the bank.
One amazing St. Ives item that I recently discovered was the St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub. Its main ingredient is calming green tea from China that is carefully dried to preserve all its antioxidants. It is also loaded with salycilic acid to help exfoliate skin and keep pores clean.
To use the scrub, you simply need to wet face, rub into skin in a circular motion, and rinse. It’s recommended that you initially use this once a week, then increase use to two to three times when your skin can handle it.
The St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub became my go-to scrub at night. It left my skin feeling squeaky clean, and I woke up in the morning to the softest skin.
I didn’t have any major breakouts during the week that I used it, which made me believe that it’s doing its job! I definitely plan to continue using this especially during the weeks when I’m most prone to hormonal breakouts.
I would recommend this scrub if:
- You’re looking for a scrub to help exfoliate your skin and calm redness.
- You’re prone to blackheads and acne.
- You want a scrub that’s high quality without being too expensive.
- You’re into pleasant fruity fragrance.
