🍃Shopaholic’s Back to Basics Featuring: St Ives🍃

✨One of the things that makes me nostalgic during shopping is coming across brands I’ve used during my teenage years ✨Aah the magical life of a teen when you are nearly an adult but still holding on unwillingly to your childhood innocence … 😪

✨Anyways once upon a hundred years ago 😒when i was a teenager battling hormone related skin eruptions one brand I used religiously was St Ives ( I would always pronounce it Saint Eeves 😁)

✨The very first product I used from the brand was their apricot scrub a creamy gritty, sand like texture which I would work religiously into my skin hoping to for glowing, model like skin 😳.

✨I’m not sure if the scrub helped my acne or made it worse but the feeling of exfoliating was incredibly satisfying back then 😉.

✨Fast forward to the present I was in the supermarket a couple of days ago when I passed by a display for ST Ives and I stopped dead in my tracks at the sight of the familiar packaging 😍( They really haven’t made any drastic changes to their packaging over the years, just saying).

✨Since then they have expanded their line to add a variety of scrubs and face washes with varying exfoliating factors (Gentle 🐰for whimps , Moderate 🐯 for the ones just getting into the exfoliating game and Deep for people with alligator hides 🐊like yours truly 😁).

✨What caught my eye this time was the Even & Bright Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub 😳 whew! Try asking your significant other to pick that up for you on a store run 😉.

✨This is a 100% natural exfoliant with zero parabens, hypo allergenic with an exfoliation factor of Moderate. It comes in a 6 oz tube like most of their scrubs and face washes ( they are really obsessed with this tube packaging for some reason 🤔).

✨It’s a creamy texture with micro scrubby bits that go to work gently polishing away dirt and buildup. Does it immediately reveal bright, polished skin? 🤔I don’t know really maybe my eyesight is really bad. Or I’m missing the brightness filter. Either way my skin looks pretty much the same just feels cleaner and feels fresh 🍃.

✨Ok so the extravagant marketing claims aside this is really is a very good exfoliator. It’s got enough of a gritty texture to give you a good exfoliation ( have I beaten that word to death in this review or what😉?). Plus the creamy texture makes it mild enough for moderately sensitive skin if you are super sensitive I suggest you pass on this.

✨Once again a winning product from America’s No. 1 Scrub brand! Umm no I really don’t believe that I just copied that from the back of the tube 😳. But seriously though I really like this product it does the job of cleaning your face and giving it a good Scrub without making it look like you had a run in with a gravel pit ( over exfoliation😳) and doesn’t dry out your skin.

✨So go ahead give it a try it’s shopaholic approved!💞 Have you tried any of St Ives products ? Let me know in the comments 😘

✨Until next time loves xoxo💋
