One of my all-time favorite daily cleansers is the St. Ives Green Tea Scrub. I love how it is gently exfoliates my skin, and I also adore the scent. However, the last time I was in the US, it was extremely hard to find in stores. Turns out that St. Ives has been renewing many of their products!
I picked up the St. Ives Oatmeal Scrub + Mask on my recent trip to Hawaii. Would this be an every day exfoliator like the Green Tea scrub, or would it be too harsh, like the well-known St. Ives Apricot Scrub?
What it does: (from the St. Ives website)
From America’s #1 Scrub brand, this new dual purpose formula combines oatmeal extract with 100% Natural Exfoliants. Use as a mark to nourish dry skin or as a scrub to smooth away dullness.
Price: As with many US drugstore products, the price varies depending on where you buy it. Walgreens.com lists this for $4.30.
Availability: St. Ives is available at drugstores in the US. The St. Ives website actually has a listing on where it can be bought!
Scent: this product has a sweet, flowery scent. Although I didn’t find the scent to be overpowering, the scent is noticeable.
- The level of exfoliation was gentle enough for me to use this as a daily cleanser
- This is a creamy cleanser, and did not leave my skin feeling stripped
- With a face wash net, this cleanser lathered up to a thick foam
- In the summer, I would prefer a stronger cleanser
Would I repurchase? Maybe. While I liked the product itself, there are a lot of other cleansers and exfoliators on the market that I want to try out.
Hope you liked this review!
