REVIEW: ST IVES NEW AND IMPROVED BODY SCRUBS

REVIEW: ST IVES NEW AND IMPROVED BODY SCRUBS
St Ives have introduced two new body scrubs to join its already successful St Ives Invigorating Apricot Body Scrub, to help buff away winter skin, even on sensitive or problem skin.
 
With Spring on its way and Summer in sight, We all want our body to look the best; so body preparation is essential. The new body scrubs come with luxurious creamy formulations, gentle micro beads and walnut shell powder (a natural exfoliator).
 
St Ives new and improved body scrubs
You can choose from Deep Cleansing Apricot Body Scrub for oily, blemish prone skin with extracts of apricot oils, chamomile, sunflower, plus the addition of Salicylic acid to help combat skin breakouts, helping leave skin smoother and clearer skin – and a scrumptious mango fragrance to revive that tropical holiday feeling.  Particularly good for backs and upper arms before you dare to bare. I didn’t actually try this product as I do not have oily skin, so on to the next.
 
St Ives new and improved body scrubs
The new nourishing Apricot Body Scrub for sensitive skin with extracts of jojoba, apricot oils, chamomile, sunflower extracts and a gorgeous natural almond fragrance has an extra mild formula which gently buffs to help reveal younger looking, radiant skin.
 
My Review, (well and my sisters too): Personally I didn’t like this one because it was too mild for me, it felt as if there were not enough micro beads in it, however I did feel surprisingly soft after use. I gave it to my sister, who has sensitive skin, who absolutely loved it! She always reluctant to try new products because she always seems break out or get  some sort of rash, but this worked fine on her. “This is my body scrub for life, I love the creamy texture too” she states!
 
St Ives new and improved body scrubs
Invigorating Apricot Body Scrub for all skin types, with apricot extracts and a zingy mango and tangerine fragrance. Your entire body will feel energised and your skin will feel instantly smoother and fresh
 
My Review  this was my favourite scrub, it has more micro beads than the Apricot Body Scrub for sensitive skin, which I liked and it wasn’t as creamy. To get extra smooth skin, I wear exfoliating gloves for extra softness.
 
Beauty Tip:
All over exfoliation will help speed up the skin’s circulation as well as the natural renewal process by buffing away dead cells, to reveal noticeably smoother, softer, healthier looking skin. 
 
Apply to damp skin in the shower or before submersion in the bath, massage into skin using small circular motions, either with a sponge or hands, concentrate on hard skin areas such as knees, heels and elbows – crucial for a streak free self tanning. Use up to twice a week for fresh, younger looking skin that glows with natural radiance!

    Nice review, very detailed information. As I have oily skin I will get the Deep Cleansing Apricot Body Scrub for oily.

    I wanted to know find out how the hairs you epilated is doing, is it still smooth or has the hair grown back.

    Thanks Mary
    In term of the epilator it has grown back, but very very fine. You probably wont notice
