St Ives Warming Scrub - Review

Friday, September 21, 2012


Okay so we aren't quite in the midst of Autumn/Winter just yet
but trust me it is coming and I don't know about you but I simply dread washing my face 
in the morning when Jack Frost is knocking at the door!
Well if that is something you also dread you may want to invest in St Ives Warming Scrub.


St Ives Warming Scrub is a gentle but effective facial scrub that warms on contact with water.
I did worry that it may burn or sting my skin but can report that the warming sensation is gentle
and warms slightly without any problems.
Another issue I was worried about before testing this was the scent, warming products tend to be spice
scented and that is not something I enjoy, this however has a light floral scent which is based on
Sunflower and Chamomile extracts.


The concept is that by warming the skin, the pores open up and allow the scrub to cleanse
in a more effective manner removing dirt and oil.
St Ives Warming Scrub is a really thick scrub that contains little micro beads,
due to it being thick it is quite difficult to dispense from the tube but balm like when on the skin.
I can't use a scrub daily my skin just goes a little crazy but this does go cleanse really thoroughly
and when testing I couldn't help but think this would be a great addition to anyone's cleansing routine
that wears heavy foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear etc) as it really does remove every scrap
of dirt, oil, grime and make-up!

Overall a great facial scrub and one that is worth investing in for the chilly weather ahead.

St Ives Warming Scrub* £3.99/125ml and is available from Boots, Superdrug
and selected Supermarkets.

  4. This look enticing, but I'm worried the warming will dry out or make my skin break out

  7. Tried the Sanctuary Warming Microbrasion Polish and it's ace, but a bit pricey for my budget at £11.99 to buy all of the time. This sounds very interesting and i can't wait to try.

  9. This scrub is my HG! Can't do without it and I wondered why no one had ever raved bout it till now. I recently bought the St Ives Makeup Remover and Facial Cleanser with the hopes that it would be just as awesome..Big mistake..it was really bad, left my face feeling dirtier :/....Was not very pleased..xx

  10. I need to go out and buy some skin care stuff tomorrow (yay!) and this is definitely on my list. I heard that the St Ives scrubs are some of the best, more affordable, ones out there so I'll give this a go!

  11. This sounds nice, I don't like the St Ives Apricot scrub because it's too harsh for me (large bits in it) but this looks quite luxurious really.

    1. Ah that is totally understandable but this has a softer texture and the scrub element is little beads so it is softer :)

  12. I love warming products, I love how they feel on the skin :) Will definitely be trying this- I had a sample of the Dermalogica one and loved it but it's just a little too pricey :(

  16. I love warming face scrubs. They definitely do feel like they are doing more. Although that might just be all in my head. Lovely on a cold winter evening though :)

  18. I keep hearing so many good things about St Ives products, and loving the price tags as well! This sounds perfect for a pamper session too. I've got a warming Sanctury mask, which I admit did feel a bit weird when I first put it on, you can't help thinking 'how do they make it do that?!' it really does go so warm on application!
