    The Magic of St Ives @STIvesSkin


    All because winter is now over – Thank GOD!!  You should still moisturize your skin. The sun can dehydrate you and coming in and out of air conditioned buildings is also not great for your skin. You can easily transition your skincare to lightweight products. Our Fresh Hydration Spray Lotions (FHL) are great for warm-weather hydration as they provide that moisturized lotion feel, but without feeling heavy!

    @StIvesSkin is Declaring Nov. 1st #ScrubOff Day!

    This past week NYC beauty editors were treated (and I mean treated!) to an impressive Halloween event at The Heath at the McKittrick Hotel (a place I’ve always wanted to go!). This was an all-out party with customizable candy apples and hor ‘doeuvres on offer, as well as a bunch of awesome activities to take part in, such as pumpkin painting, tarot card readings, puppet shows, and fake painting (my fave). I wasn’t able to take photos at this event so check out these cool pics from GLAM:


    What a fun way to ring in Halloween! But what happens after the face paint? Well, St. Ives has cleverly declared November 1st National Scrub Off Day to mark the time when everyone will be taking off that face makeup and scrubbing their faces back to normality. And there’s really no better way to scrub it all off than with St. Ives.


    Here’s a few of my fave products:


    The St. Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Apricot Scrub. Who doesn’t have this wonder product in their beauty cabinet? If you’re one of the few who doesn’t, go out and buy it now! This stuff is simply the best. Here’s why it works to keep your skin feeling fantastic. It contains the best natural products out there, such as apricots, walnuts and corn kernel meal. Put all these together and you’ve got yourself an incredible post-Halloween face scrub that leaves skin feeling hydrated and nourished.

    The St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Body Scrub. For an all-over scrub, try this! The antioxidant power of green tea will keep your skin soothed while fighting blemishes. Squirt a little on a pouf in the shower, lather up and rinse. You’ll feel an immediate difference.

    Hydration spray

    And the newest arrival to the St. Ives lineup–Fresh Hydration Lotion Sprays! These new sprays give you all the moisturizer your skin needs, without a heavy lotion feel. Choose from Energizing Citrus & Vitamin C, Soothing Oatmeal & Shea Butter or Coconut Milk & Orchid Extract (my personal fave!). These are so perfect for the winter months when our skin can get dried out in front of a cozy heater!

    Check out these great products at StIves.com and buy them when you’re out next–your post-Halloween skin will love you for it.

    And don’t forget St. Ives fans can submit a photo of a past or present Halloween look via Instagram by tagging it with the hashtag #ScrubOff and enter to win a #ScrubOff prize pack, which will include an assortment of St. Ives scrub products and a $250 gift card to a participating retailer.

    Natural Skincare Solutions @StIvesSkin #freshskin

    St. Ives has always been a favorite of mine when it comes to their facial products. They have four lines: Naturally Clear, Fresh Skin, Timeless Skin, and Sensitive Skin.

    In their Naturally Clear line (good for oily skin, blemishes from redness and breakouts), they have a Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub. This will help clear breakouts and calm redness. It’s 100% natural green tea, too! Yumm! Fresh Skin (good for combination and normal skin, uneven skin texture) has an amazing Apricot Scrub that will smooth your skin and help exfoliate it. Timeless Skin (good for sensitive skin, loss of elasticity/firmness) has an Apricot Scrub that will tone and firm your skin. The scrub contains AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), revealing your youth. Sensitive Skin (good for, well, sensitive skin, and uneven skin texture) has an Apricot Scrub that will smooth and cleanse your skin. It’s a great exfoliate that you can use daily.

    Did you know apricot is a powerful antioxidant and apricot oil is known for hydrating and nourishing your skin? And did you know green tea is a redness reducer and fights free radicals? So, which one works best for you?

    St. Ives helps control my oily skin, especially the t-zone area. The products also leave my skin baby soft. I personally like the green tea scrub. It’s 100% natural green tea but what I would say is I 100% recommend it. Love, love, love…
