One Week To Fresher Skin

So it’s been a week, having no ‘before’ photos I can’t truly demonstrate the results but I included some afters just for kicks. As I mentioned in the first post my skin has been drier lately and pretty dull so I chose the Invigorating scrub to trial. Full disclosure – during the past 7 days I haven’t used my Clarisonic but I have used my Soap & Glory Peaches & Clean cleanser on my ‘no scrub days’.
It’s recommended that you scrub 3-4 times a week but I’ll admit.. I pushed it to 5. After using my Clarisonic exclusively for so long the clean feeling this gave me was addictive. I forgot how much I loved face scrubs, they were always part f my routine and dya know.. a facial brush just doesn’t cut it.

Here are a couple of uber flattering photos of me, enjoy! I had a few comments on my last post about these scrubs being too harsh on the skin. I can’t stress enough that skin care is not a one size fits all area.. what works for me might not work for you. My skin has always responded well to exfoliation, that used to be to manage breakouts and now it’s to brighten and smooth. Regardless I found this to be tough enough to leave me feeling squeaky clean with cheeks so soft they could rival Milo’s (4months old) yet gentle enough for regular use. Does my face look brighter? I think so but how do you really measure that? I know it doesn’t look dull and that’s really all I want.
From now on I will be switching out my Clarisonic every other day in favour of a good old fashioned face scrub because St Ives has me hooked on a feeling and that feeling is clean!
You can currently buy this on offer for just £1.97 from Superdrug

    I just bought the Blemish Fighting one and i've only used it once and i'm already in love with it! It made my skin feel amazing and even smoother than when I use my Clarisonic! I think I'll do the same as you and alternate between the two 🙂

    I kept reading that this stuff was too harsh but I love it. I don't get anything out of scrubs with teeny tiny bits. As long as you don't scrub too hard it's fine.

    Do you know if this is the same as the original formula just in different packaging? I tried this product years ago and wasn't a fan but I'm like you and love face scrubs so I'd be up for trying it if it was a new formula. My scrub of choice is the Vitamin C Microdermabrasion from The Body Shop…it's AMAZING!xx

    I use this every day, a normal face wash will have me breaking out big time.It makes my face so clean, soft, and glowy! You are right in that what works for one doesn't always work for another. Your skin looks absolutely radiant 🙂 x

    £1.97?! What a bargain – will totally be picking some up. That's less money than a take-away coffee…

    I am hooked. The facial scrub makes my face feel cleaner, brighter and smoother. A great difference to the facial scrub/cloths I have used. I am converted, I will buy St. Ives from now on.

    I just bought the blemish fighting one today, loveee it!! Such good value too considering how cheap it is! Your skin is amazing, can I be a total creep and ask what your regime is? I know everyone's different so it probs won't work for me the same, I'm just curious 🙂 xx

    You wouldn't regret buying St. Ives, been using the naturally clear blemish fighting for 6 years and Im so pleased with the result. Since I moved here in the UK I swift to fresh skin invigorating and I am contented and very happy with the result. Than you St. Ives. Cheer. 🙂

    I love this after trying a free smaple, have totally being converted to using this everyday instead of my clinique soap, with this, the clinique toner and moisturising gel my skin has looked better than ever.
