I was searching for a natural exfoliating facial scrub and cleanser and came across Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub from St. Ives. I decided to pick up a bottle and give it a try. So far since I have been using I actually haven’t liked it much because it has caused my skin to breakout and become very dry.
This exfoliating facial scrub is green color and smooth appearance. When you go to use the scrub you will feel that it is slightly gritty, but not gritty enough to help get your skin well exfoliated. I also noticed while using it the burning sensations it causes which I really don’t like. The facial scrub is easy to wash off, but left my face really tight, dry, and irritated. I don’t think I will be using this facial scrub again on my sensitive combination type skin.
The way I used the scrub is by first washing my face with warm water to help open up my pores so I could really help get them cleansed better when I went to use the scrub. Then I took about a quarter size amount of the scrub and massaged it in circular motions all over my face and skin for about a minute. This is when I started to feel the burning stinging sensation. After I rinsed my face off with lots of warm water. My skin did feel smoother after using this scrub, but my skin was very dry, tight, and irritated like I mentioned.
The reason I got this facial scrub was because it was natural and contained natural ingredients in it like
Olive oil, green tea, and silica. I even liked that it didn’t contain parabens and sulfates in it either. However, even though there were natural ingredients in this skin care product I didn’t feel it nourished and exfoliated my skin well. However, I think those of you suffering from acne can benefit from using this facial scrub because it does contain salicylic acid in it. I think people with sensitive and combination skin should just stay away from this scrub.
Now I did think the Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub from St. Ives was very affordable and did contain a good 4 ounces of scrub per bottle. However, I do not believe it was worth the money and I wont be getting it again. I do hope those of you who try this natural scrub will like it a lot better than I did and I hope it works a lot better for you than it did for me. I wish you all the best with having well exfoliated bright beautiful younger looking skin.
