Facial scrub is one of my favorite skin care item because it really helps smoothen the skin and remove dead cells making it brighter-looking. When choosing a face scrub, I want something that can scrub my face well without the grains being dissolved in the water. I first find that kind of product with Beauty Formulas then St. Ives. These 2 brands are really good and different from each other. I was truly satisfied with the quality those items and really do love it. Years after using it, I found another product that is so similar to that of St. Ives Apricot scrub and it is from Beauty Fix. At first look you might thought that this is really St. Ives because the label and packaging is very similar. I looked at its ingredients list to see if they are still the same. Well most of their contents are but not everything. I decided to buy it since it has a cheaper price than St. Ives and I thought that they might have the same quality.
I was right to trust my instinct and little knowledge about cosmetic ingredients. It works well on my skin just like my favorite brand and I am also satisfied with it for making my skin smooth and brighter; Also I love it because it does not leave a slippery feeling on my skin after washing off. If there are little differences that I have seen with it as compared to St. Ives, well I can say that Beauty Fix’s consistency is not as thick as St. Ives and the cream part of it is slightly greenish, something that has earthy color and with regards to their scent, Beauty fix’s is stronger. About its pimple healing property, I can say that it also helps but not to the point that the blemish will be dried but rather decrease its size.
Like any other facial scrub, use it with caution. When you have pimples, please don’t scrub that area or you will get bigger ones! It is good if you use it 3 times a week after washing your face with facial wash. So far, I love the totality of the product and would definitely buy again. The quality is very similar to my favorite scrub and has cheaper price.
