A Budget Alternative To St Ives Facial Scrub.....

Recently while shopping in my local B&M store I saw this very familiar looking scrub.....

Osiris Avise Apricot Facial Scrub - 250ml - 99p!

I had to buy, a whopping 250ml for 99p, it was too much of a bargain to not test it out. The packaging really reminds me of St Ives which retails for around £3.00_£4.00 for 150ml. 

I have never seen this brand before but after a quick google they have a large range of budget skincare, they have a website showing you the full range which is brought to you by a company called Xpel Marketing you can see the website here.

"Osiris Apricot Facial Scrub has been specially formulated to gently cleanse and stimulate your skin by helping to remove excess oil and dead skin cells to reveal a healthier, fresher looking complexion. Suitable for all skin types."

I liked how the scrub contained large beads and quite a lot of them thankfully, this is a major 
issue I have with some facial scrubs....not enough beads!

The scrub really does give you a deep scrub but I do have one downside to it, the scent. Now I don't mind it, but I know some people will dislike it a lot. It reminds me of peach schnapps, you know the drink we all got stupidly drunk on when we were younger, so this may bring back bad memories for some, how ever I quite like it ha! 

Overall if you can stomach the smell then this is a great cheaper alternative to the St Ives facial scrub. It leaves your skin soft and smooth and for 99p I cannot complain at all!

Have you heard or seen this brand before?
