Evening Tea *Day 16*

For St. Ives Green Tea Scrub


What It Is:

A blackhead clearing scrub that calms redness and is made of 100% natural exfoliants.

Key Ingredients:

Salicylic acid, water, silica, glycerin, ceteayl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, fragrance, phenethyl alcohol, olive leaf extract, artificial dyes.

How It Looks/Smells/Feels:

It is a dull lime green pastey scrub with micro-particles. It smells very fresh and crisp like sweetened green tea. It gives a nice exfoliation without being too harsh.

Why I Like It:

It was an average scrub for me and did nothing for my blackheads. I enjoyed using it in the shower when I had it, but I would not repurchase this. I might buy the apricot scrub in the future, because I remember really loving that one. I’m not in the market for one now though. I think I have three or four other scrubs to go through first. It isn’t a bad scrub, it just did nothing for my skin personally. A friend of mine swears by this scrub. So, if you suffer from milia, I would say to try this product.

Purify Me

For Epice Purifying Exfoliant


What it is: A fancy exfoliator that purifies your pores by getting the gunk out of them.

Key Ingredients: ? Does not state on packaging.

How it feels/smells/looks: It has a fresh floral scent that I don’t hate but I don’t love it, either. I tolerate it. It is white and grainy. This is a microscrub, very similar to microdermabrasion scrubs.

Why I Like it: I enjoyed using this in the shower, but nothing can hold a candle to Lush’s Ocean Salt, which is my one and only love, at least for a scrub. I did like using this, but I would not go out and buy it. There was nothing really special about it. It did not stick out in my mind. I actually like my St. Ives Green Tea Scrub better, because I can feel it working on my skin and it is quite a bit thicker in consistency. I love trying out new skincare products, even if I already have a favorite. I love trying out high end and obscure brands that I have never heard of before. Skincare is just something I enjoy a bit more than makeup, if you haven’t been able to tell yet.

With Love,
