Need a face scrub that works hard for you?

Do you need a face scrub that does wonders to your skin? If the answer is yes, then you have come to the right place. I am going to review two face scrub today which I have used for ages. One is expensive one  (Clinique) and another one is cheaper one (St Ives). Yes, it is going to be interesting and you will get hooked on it. 

ST IVES Apricot Scrub
I have been using this product for last past 5 years and I love this product. I use this product once every two week and it does a great job. It exfoliates so well and makes my skin feel smooth and clean. It does not irritate sensitive skin which is a big plus point as I have sensitive skin. It does not dry out my skin at all and gives amazing face glow afterwards. Also, this scrub is really affordable (just £4.39) and can be found in any drugstores. They do this scrub for all skin types from sensitive to oily skin. I use sensitive one which has less grains in the scrub as it can be bit too harsh for sensitive skin.

The only cons is this product can be a little rough, if you are not gentle. Also, I would advise people not to use this everyday because of the scrubs sandy like texture it might just be a bit too harsh for your skin.

Clinique 7 Day Scrub 
I have used this product from last year. I am not a big fan of this product and I only use them once in a while. To be honest, I haven't used this product for last three or four months. This scrub is for all skin types  but yet fails to deliver what is has promised which is a glowing skin. It works but not harder like St Ives scrub. This product is expensive as it cost £16.50 and can only be found  in bigger drugstores.

What disappointed me was the fact that  it says it can be used for seven days but if you scrub everyday  then it will make your skin dry and sensitive. Also, it can cause acne and spots to flare up. Scrubs are not meant for everyday use as it can damaged your skin. It's best to do once a week or twice every two weeks. I am glad I didn't use this scrub everyday even though it says it's 7 day scrub cream. After the use it made my skin even more drier. I am so disappointed with this product as it is such a good brand and expensive  that leads us to assume us this product should work better. But I am afraid  buying this product is basically just wasting your money.
St Ives is the best scrub and I am hooked on this scrub for years now and will continue to use till it does wonders to my skin. I dare not stray anymore in search for another scrub.
