When I think of the St. Ives brand, I immediately think of their Apricot Scrub...a product I haven't used since high school. And I guess I haven't paid much attention to St. Ives since then either.
But let me tell you: St. Ives has changed! They now carry all sorts of great products, including the St. Ives Element line. Element products look much higher end than I remember the Apricot Scrub being. They combine ingredients like olives, salt, and minerals to create microderm creams, lotions, and other exciting products.
I've also been using a few of St. Ives' new body polishes: Smoothing Mineral Therapy, Moisturizing Oatmeal and Shea Butter, and Renewing Collagen Elastin. Each exfoliating body polish smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling smoother, softer, and much more touchable. They make me look forward to stepping into the shower each morning!
After buffing away my uneven, dry patches, I finish my morning shower routine with St. Ives' clinically proven Cellulite Shield, an advanced body moisturizer that has been proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite in two weeks. Who couldn't use this product, especially during swimsuit season?
The Cellulite Shield program consists of a Gel Creme, a formula specifically designed to combat targeted problem areas. Enriched with menthol and caffeine, you can actually feel this powerful, stimulating formula hydrate your skin as it combats cellulite head on. Following the Gel Creme application, I'm also trying out the Cellulite Shield Advanced Body Moisturizer for a complete cellulite-fighting regime. The shea butter moisturizes as the MicroSmooth Complex continues to combat cellulite for long lasting, visible improvements. Skin is left toned, smooth and visibly more contoured without dimples or bumps. So far I've noticed my skin surface feels more even and much less dry.
The best thing about St. Ives is that their products won't break the bank and they're available at drugstores. The Cellulite Gel Creme costs $6.99; the Body Moisturizer is only $4.99.
