What the brand says: This St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Cleanser will have your face feeling refreshed and clean. It provides you with smoother, healthier and radiant skin. This St. Ives facial cleanser removes oil and dirt from your pores. It also prevents new blackheads from forming and is ideal for the treatment of acne. It deeply cleanses while fading away the appearance of blemishes for a softer feeling face.
Packaging: The cleanser comes in a sturdy tube with flip open cap. The opening is not wide and dispenses only a little required amount. The tube is quite huge so I doubt if I will be able to carry it along but it is travel friendly as it does not leak at all.
Texture: The cleanser is like a thick cream with tiny pink granules in it that exfoliate very gently and are not harsh or anything. It does not really foam but froms a creamy residue and cleanses thoroughly
Fragrance: This cleanser smells exactly like the apricot scrub from the same range.
How I use and staying power: To use, take a small quantity on the palms and apply on the face. Wet your hands and massage with gentle circular moments. Wash off and pat dry.
The cleanser does not foam like regular cleanser but cleanses the skin well and also moisturizes it at the same time. Will suit all skin types. It effectively removes the dirt and grime from skin’s surface with gentle exfoliation and makes it soft and supple. The cleanser is very gentle and I feel it cannot be used alone to remove makeup, you need to first remove the makeup using a makeup remover and then use this cleanser to thoroughly cleanse the skin and moisturize it at the same time. Coming to its anti-blemish claim, I feel it does work! Its summer time and I always get pimples during this time of the year; since I am regularly using this I do feel it is helping me control my blemishes and cystic acne too because I did not experience much acne or breakouts. Overall, a great cleanser to control blemishes and keep skin moisturized and fresh.
