I've used the St Ives apricot scrub alot in the past so I was really keen to try this one when I saw it in the beauty vault. The packaging is a white squeezy tube with green writing, a picture of green tea leaves and the St Ives brand name at the top. The scrub is a green paste that smells really refreshing. The texture is quite smooth with just a little bit of grit so it's quite gentle on my face. I've been using it 2-3 times a week and I'm really liking it, it leaves my skin soft and refreshed everytime. I didn't notice it clearing my blackheads, although I don't really get alot of them anyway and it didn't calm any redness but I would definitely keep buying this one because of the smell and how it leaves my face feeling, it does really clean it well.
