Seeing the subject header, I’m sure you would have guess what’s the beauty topic for today: P It’s none other than scrubs! Before heading into my review of St.Ives Scrub, let me just share WHY Exfoliating is good for our skin.
There are many benefit and reasons as why we need to incorporate exfoliating in our beauty routine. Exfoliating helps to unclog pores from dirt, blackheads, dead skin and other surface impurities. When your old flaky skin is scrubbed away, it will reveal a much smoother looking skin.
This is where St.Ives Scrub comes in to save your day! St. Ives believes the most powerful ingredients can’t be created in a lab. In formulating the products, St. Ives uses the most effective and fresh ingredients sourced from nature – with no unnecessary chemicals.
Spending more than 60 years exploring and formulating products that are made from nature, St.Ives pamper your skin with nature’s best ingredients . Let your skin feed from the best of Mother Earth and feel the work of nature at your fingertips with every scrub.
For those who are who are conscious about the environment and looking for green beauty products. St. Ives scrubs are eco-friendly and microbeads-free. That means you can safely exfoliate your skin without leaving a harmful footprint behind. This is such an awesome news!
Are you aware, the scrubs are made from 100% natural exfoliate? Comparing St. Ives scrub with other brands, you’ll feel the texture is much softer and smoother. Why? It’s because of the Walnut shell powder, which is a gentle-yet-effective natural ingredient. Their walnuts are grown in California. Once harvested, they are washed, dried and cracked before going through a gentle process to separate the walnut from the shell. Next, the shells were milled gently into a fine powder to create a soft scrub.
The new St. Ives face scrubs are:
Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub
It’s rich in antioxidants like Vitamin C and E. The apricots are extracted through a gentle water-soaking process: this involves soaking the whole fruit in a water-based solution. Thus, extracting the best from the fruit without actually harming it. I loved the appealing tangy apricot scent.
Acne Control Apricot Scrub
Using the same gentle water-soaking process, this scrub contains salicylic acid to help reduce breakouts and prevent acne. Crushed walnut shell powder leaves pores fresher and offers a beautifully glowing skin. The fuzzy fruit apricot scent will definitely make you love it more!
Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub
Dermatologist-tested, this green tea packs a punch to tackled blackheads. Loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, it helps to unclog pores and calm redness for glowing skin. The minty refreshing green tea scent so good.
Radiant Skin Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub
The amazing scent of pink lemon and sweet mandarin peel extracts, this citrusy face scrub lightens dark spots and evens out skin tone.
Energizing Coconut & Coffee Scrub
Energize dull, tired skin with this ‘wake me up’ coffee scent. Containing powerful Vitamin C & E, it deeply exfoliates the skin and is voted the ‘Winner of America’s #NextTopScrub!
Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub and Mask
How about a 2-in-1 scrub and mask? This 2-in-1 is certainly a treat as the walnut shell powder gently buffs away dull skin. Let the oatmeal and honey calm and nourish the skin when applied as a face mask. Best to soothe skin irritations.
I just loved all the new St. Ives face scrubs as it keeps my skin feeling alive, fresh and glowing! My top 3 favorites go to Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub and Mask, Radiant Skin Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub and Energizing Coconut & Coffee Scrub. However, do remember that excessive exfoliation might lead to dry, irritated and red skin. If you have dry skin, exfoliate once a week and for oily skin twice a week *wink* Have fun scrubbing!
