St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub And Mask sounded like an exotic scrub and mask two in one. As I had really liked St. Ives Green Tea Scrub, I decided to give this one a try, more so because it contains oatmeal and I like the formulation of St. Ives scrubs and also because it said scrub as well as mask. Let us get to know more about it.
What’s It Like?
St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub And Mask comes in a huge tube with flip opening. The scrub cum mask is off white in colour with tiny beads for scrubbing. It has a pleasant fragrance. The consistency is thick and creamy, it lathers quite well.
What’s The Claim?
It claims to be scrub and mask two in one with goodness of oatmeal. It claims to smooth the dryness of your skin and even out the texture. This one is a gentle scrub.
What’s The Price?
One tube of 170 gm retails for 399 INR, though on Nykaa, it is on discount most of the times.
My Thoughts On St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub And Mask:
Well a huge disappointment to say the least! As a scrub it is quite gentle and smooth but then why market it as scrub and mask two in one? When you think of a scrub cum mask, you expect something which you can leave on your face for sometime to soak up the goodness. But this is too soapy to do that, I mean you would not want to keep something so soapy on your face for more than a minute! You can use it only as a scrub and that too will give you very very mild scrubbing action.
The Yays 👍
