St. Ives Daily Microdermabrasion Review

This is an award winning scrub and has been talked about a lot over the internet. If you visit their website, the product claims: with fine mineral crystals, chamomile & vitamin E • Dermatologist-Tested • 100% natural extracts • Formulated without parabens and phthalates • does not contain animal ingredients • Not tested on animals. If you also read the user reviews on the site, all of it are very promising and the consumers really loved them! Who wouldn't want to try a product that doesn't test on animals, contains 100% natural ingredients, and is tested by dermatologist. I for one have an oily but sensitive skin so it is a must for me that the product is made with natural components and is not chemical based.

I have been wanting to try this scrub for a long time because I have read positive reviews about this product but it's always out of stock. When I finally got it in my hands I was so excited to use it but I was also a little worried that it may not work well with my current skin care using other St. Ives scrubs and damage my skin. Even so I still decided to give it a try because I don't want to miss this award winning product which may work out pretty well for me. On first use the mild chamomile scent is so heavenly it makes me want to use it more. The fresh fragrance is very comforting and you just know that it's caring for the skin on every use. Chamomile is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, anti-bacterial and moisturizing properties that doesn't only help with the redness and swelling on the skin but also nourishes it. A small amount of this product goes a long way because it has more than enough granules you need to scrub your face and even your neck. Its grains are smaller compared to the reputable apricot scrubs that almost everyone loves so it's really delicate for daily use. The granules are made from fine mineral crystals that helps maintain the skin's tone and elasticity.

I use this scrub everyday to help remove excess makeup, oil, and dirt and it doesn't dry my skin at all. Immediately after scrubbing, my skin just feels so clean yet very soft and silky. With just three weeks use, my pores are minimized and my face is less oily. It has cleared whiteheads around my nose which in the past is almost impossible without the help of a good toner which is amazing. My skin has never been so soft, clear, and blemish free and I will continue using this scrub so long as St. Ives continues to manufacture this product. It does gently reveals younger looking and refined skin.

Listed are the ingredients for those who wants to know more about the components of this product.

If you are allergic to any of the active ingredients of this product, please take extreme caution and perform a skin test 24-48 hours before using this scrub. I hope this review helps anyone who wants to learn more about this scrub.

  2. Hi! Yes it is available locally :)

  3. does it also removes blackheads and lessen the appearance of pimple scars? :) I'm planning to buy this. Nice review btw! :D

  4. Hi Onika! It does help remove blemishes and it minimized my pores too. It also helps lighten pimple scars with regular use. It did on mine :). I love this scrub and I'm still using it. I'm glad you like my review :)

  5. Tempting! This one is priced a bit higher than other St. Ives products but I think they got a very good reason to. I'll buy this baby once I get my hands on my paycheck. Thanks for the review~

    My new little world:

  6. It's sold out most of the time because it really is so good. The price is not so bad because it it takes months before you can finish the whole thing. Do let me me know how it goes for you :)

  7. ohhhhhh love to try this one... problem is cant find this in my local store.

    1. It's really good! I ran out of this scrub 2 months ago and I can't find it anymore :(. Hopefully this becomes available in our local stores soon :).
