I rarely do a beauty blog post, actually I'm not sure that I've ever done one before, but today when I was stocking up on face wash I thought about all of you and thought I'd share one of my favorite products.
First of all, I must admit that I don't have the perfect skin. Actually, it's quite the opposite. I have extremely sensitive, acne prone skin and large facial pores that I hate (I promise I'm not just finding issues on my body!). On top of that, I have inherited a very red skin tone from my Dad, who inherited it from his Dad...it honestly makes me wonder what my heritage is that has given me this coloring. The red skin tone isn't so bad when it comes to the rest of my body, in fact it leaves me looking as if I have somewhat of a tan year round, but it unfortunately makes my face look a little red and blotchy. I spent a lot of time in dermatologists chairs when I was younger and have tried many different products, but I found that my best option is not only found in local drugstores but is also pretty cheap. Meet my go-to, favorite face wash/product/brand...
As you can see, the St. Ives brand has many different products...from their classic apricot scrub (that I've used for many years and love!) to their eye & face stress gel that is supposed to remove lines, wrinkles, and other visible signs of stress. St. Ives products constantly receive rave reviews for their products effectiveness and their price; on top of that, St. Ives products are made with natural ingredients...no more putting nasty chemicals on your skin!
Today I bought St. Ives' new product, their green tea scrub.
The green tea in this scrub is supposed to help reduce that pesky redness in your face as well as get rid of blemishes. I cannot wait to begin trying it and I will definitely let all of you know if this product is just as effective as the rest of them.
I hope this little beauty product review has been helpful to all of you. For all of you who are out of the U.S., I'm not sure if this product is sold internationally but if you're interested in trying it, it can be ordered online and shipped internationally. Be sure and let me know if you think you might try any of the St. Ives products or if you're a faithful user like me! x
