Review: St.Ive’s Green Tea Scrub

P1020398.jpg

Hi guys! Today I’ve got a skincare review for you. I recently purchased the St. Ive’s Green Tea Scrub in my last Drugstore Haul so after using it for a few weeks I am ready to tell you what I think of it.

This scrub has a very interesting texture. It is as if a clay mask and an exfoliating scrub combined into one. I find it is very gentle to use and does a great job at keeping my pores clean. As well, it helps buff off any dry patches that this lovely winter may have caused. The exfoliation factor chart on the back labels it as moderate (on a scale of gentle, moderate and deep). I still find it quite gentle though but I do not have sensitive skin.

Due to the texture I find I prefer keeping it in my shower. You know that lovely thing that happens when you go to rinse off a clay mask in the sink and it seems to go everywhere? When it is difficult to rinse out of every nook and cranny of your face? That is what happens when you go to rinse this off. Using it in the shower seems to work best so that I don’t splash water everywhere while I rinse it off.

A little bit goes a very long way with this product so it is best to use a small amount. You don’t need much and using any more than you need makes rinsing it a longer process than necessary.

This is a 100% natural exfoliant, it is sulfate-free and does not contain parabens. It also contains oil-free salicyclic acid acne medication so I think it would be best suited for oily skin. Although most skin types can handle a concentrated amount of salicyclic acid. The packaging says it should be used twice daily for best results, but I typically only exfoliate every few days.

Have you tried the St. Ive’s Green Tea Scrub? If not, what is your favourite exfoliator? Let’s chat in the comments down below!

  1. I had a tube of this but I’m not sure where it went. Never opened it! I might have given it away because I had too many skincare products. 😛
    I’m going to get this again – it sounds great and it’s SO inexpensive too!

    1. Yeah I’m super happy with it so far! When I’m out of it I’ll definitely repurchase! I’ve got so many face washes on the go right now but I keep gravitating to this one!

  2. Great post! This product sounds really good!

    1. Thank you so much! It really is quite great, and inexpensive too!

  3. I have tried the St. Ives scrubs and my favorite one is the Apricot one. I use it in the shower every other day. 😉

    1. I used to use the Apricot one years ago but for some reason I stopped. This one is a bit more gentle though so I think I like it more than that one. St. Ive’s is great!

  4. I loved the Pink Lemon and Mandarain Scrub by St. Ives but I had to stop using it because it was making me break out. It smelled so good and was gentle yet effective too! I don’t think I’ve seen this one before, I’ll have to check the ingredients out. My favourite scrub is the Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Mask, it’s amazing. I use it as a scrub more than a mask but it works great as either!

    1. Oooh I really want to try a charcoal scrub and/or mask so I’ll have to pick that one up!

      1. I highly recommend it!

  6. […] I went through two of these actually this past quarter as my husband is using this as well now. I’ve spoken about this scrub so many times so I’ll just cut to the chase. Would I repurchase it? Yes! It’s definitely a favourite! You can find my full review here! […]
