I used to be a big fan of Aveeno. I still love the products. However, every time I pop into the drugstore, I end up leaving with a St. Ives product.
A lot of my friends used the St. Ives apricot line of products back in middle and high school. I never quite made it on the bandwagon. I’m definitely making up for lost time here.
Desperately searching for a scrub a few months back, I grabbed the St. Ives Green Tea Scrub after a quick game of eenie-meenie-miney-moe. The scrub is perfect for washing my face after running. It gets all the sweat out of my pores… as well as my thick sunscreen. I used to have to scrub with a washcloth to (attempt to) get the sunscreen completely off and wash at least twice. This left my skin raw and irritated. Now, one quick face wash and I’m good to go.
Then I got my spray tan. The lady encouraged me to moisturize a few times a day to make my tan last longer. I typically steer clear of lotions. (I don’t like the way it makes my fingers feel or how they sometimes make me feel greasy, not moisturized.)
After the success of the scrub, I decided to test out the wonders of St. Ives lotion. I walked away with St. Ives Hydrating Lotion with Vitamin E. Wow. The smell is light and fresh. The texture is creamy. And my skin feels soft, not greasy.
Fast forward a few weeks and I’m in need of an exfoliating body wash. I hate taking a shower and still having bug spray and sunscreen residue on my skin. Of course, by now, my first instinct is to search for a St. Ives product that fits my need. Yep, got it.
St. Ives Purify Exfoliating Body Wash. A-MA-ZING. Don’t you just love taking a shower and having the bathroom smell like your body wash for hours afterward??? Please tell me I’m not the only one!!!
I’m definitely a convert.
Do you use St. Ives? Are there products that I should try out?!?
