I Pray to St. Ives!
I don’t know who Ives was, but he is without a doubt my favorite Saint! Recently I read somewhere about the virtues of St. Ives Apricot Scrub, so I decided to go out and get some for myself. St. Ives has been around for a long time, and there’s a reason for it’s longevity. The St. Ives apricot scrub exfoliates without leaving behind a layer of grease, and unlike scrubs that contain sugar or salt, the exofliating granules don’t disolve, meaning you can scrub away for ten minutes at a time if you want without having to reach into the pot for more. I exfoliated last night and today my skin is soft and radiant. St. Ives not only exfoliates but also cleanses. But the best part about it is that you pay $4 for a tub–compare that to a pot of any other scrub. They usually run anywhere from 15-20 and come in smaller amounts, let alone that they some times are so full of oil that they actually clog your pores instead of clearing them. St. Ives Apricot Scrub comes in serveral different forumulas, including Blemish and Blackhead control, Medicated for Acne Prone Skin, Gentle for Sensitive Skin, Apricot Scrub Renew & Firm, and Moisturizing Apricot Scrub for hands and feet. None of these cost more than $7, which is probably the best deal around. I’m not overly crazy about the St. Ives shower gels–to me they are a tad chemically, but they are affordable and do come in nice scents. I like the Mountain Jasmine.
