If you’re anything like me, you try products, use it for awhile, then move on to something else. It’s not the product is bad you just want to check something else out. Sometimes those abandoned products end up languishing under your sink and others times you end up revisiting them and wonder how you lived without it. I’m in the latter category with St.Ives Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub.
I don’t have to tell you about the importance of exfoliation but just in case you don’t know exfoliation helps with the natural shedding process of skin, encourages healthier, smoother skin, and even-toned skin. It can also help with acne prevention, smaller pores, and wrinkle production. It also helps those serums and moisturizers we slather on to absorb into the skin.(totalbeauty.com) If all of that seems like skincare jargon, think of it as another step to help get the gunk out of your pores.
What’s great about this St. Ives scrub is how tiny the exfoliators are. I’ve used a more expensive product with tiny granules and lamented about price only to realize I had something comparable in my bathroom for a fraction of the price. It really feels like it’s exfoliating compared to other products. Maybe you’ve seen those giant beads in some cleansers and products but they’ve never done anything for my skin and many aren’t environmentally safe. St. Ives uses 100% natural exfoliants so this is good for those concerned with being as eco-friendly as possible.
St.Ives Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub is a moderate level scrub. There are other scrubs that are for deep exfoliation and gentle exfoliation so if this one isn’t for you can move up or down the scale to find something that fits your needs. This particular scrub has a pretty creamy base so while it exfoliates well, the granules aren’t packed in it to the point that you need to give yourself a lot of time between uses. However, be gentle with this or any exfoliation. You don’t want to damage your skin.
This is definitely going to be a repurchase once this runs out. Is exfoliation part of your skincare regimen? What are you using to exfoliate?
St. Ives Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange scrub is available at Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens and other retailers.
