St. Ives is one of those products we see in every drugstore skincare aisle. After being to Sephora, trying out GlamGlow we feel like we are too good for St. Ives. But for me, St. Ives always has a special place in my heart because I grew up watching my mom scrubbing her face with the original St. Ives scrub. I remember asking my mom if I could wash my face with it too. She laughed and put a little bit on my nose. I remember laughing at how funny my face looked with that exfoliating scrub covering my nose. My mom always used St. Ives before she put on her makeup. She said that it made her skin look brighter and smoother.
And whenever I go on trips, I always go out and buy the green tea apricot scrub. I love the green tea because it reduces redness and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. When I recieved the blemish control scrub from Influenster, I knew I would love it. The scrub didn’t leave my skin dry or stripped like some blemish control scrubs. The scrub was pretty gentle. After years of going to the dermatologist and using the strongest acne fighting medicines, my skin might be used to most drugstore level blemish control cleansers.
St. Ives always leaves my skin feeling soft, radiant, and smooth. I will always go back to St. Ives and remember the times I stood on a stool in my mothers bathroom watching her prep her face for makeup. I love you mommy and thank you for teaching me everything I know!
