Review // St Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Gel Cleanser!

Thursday, March 26, 2015

Hello beauties,
We are always on the lookout for a perfect product which would give us that beautiful clear skin. Well, I have found something that my skin is loving at the moment and that is the St Ives Blemish Control Green Tea Gel Cleanser. Before I go on further, let me tell you that my skin is dry/normal and I get a few pimples here and there which frustratingly leave behind spots due to my silly habit of scratching them.

I bought it for 495 PKR from Al Fatah.
It is available from all leading stores and you can also purchase it from

Gently clears breakouts & calms redness.
* Hypoallergenic
* Non - Comedogenic
* Oil-Free
* Formulated without Parabens
* Dermatologist Tested

Active Ingredient
Salicylic Acid (2%)

It comes in a 200ml clear plastic bottle with a pump dispenser which is great and hygienic. I love the simple but decent packaging. However due to its big size, it isn't travel friendly.

It says on the bottle that it is a gel cleanser, but in reality the consistency is a lot thinner than a gel and hence is runny. This cleanser is very light green in color.

Oh, I love the scent. It is fresh, tangy and very herbal-ly. It does smell of green tea and a bit like jasmine. The scent is not overpowering, I think that it won't bother sensitive noses.

My Thoughts
This cleanser lathers very nicely and you need a pea sized amount to work into a lather. After washing my face with this cleanser, my skin feels dry and tight but not too much. I've heard people claiming that this cleanser is for oily skins and yes that's absolutely true but the reason I love it, is my acne spots have started fading and my pimples were gone after a day or two. I don't know how but it kind of dries up the pimples and my skin looks very clear. I do moisturize my skin thoroughly after using this and then everything settles down. My face has never looked this clean before and I absolutely adore using this cleanser everyday because this is the only product I've found that in actual gets rid of pimples. I'm loving this product. Also in summers this product will come very useful as one likes to have a mattified complexion in summers and this does exactly that. I didn't face any problem with this cleanser and it is formulated without parabens which is awesome. Also this product contains Salicylic Acid which everyone knows combats acne. Overall I would say this is a great cleanser for those who want clean, clear and matte skin. I would give 4.5/5 to this product.

If you want a cleanser that isn't heavy on the pocket and does a great job of getting rid of pimples then buy it.

Would I Repurchase?
