Skincare Review St. Ives Exfoliate and Nourish Coconut Oil Scrub

St. Ives Exfoliate and Nourish Coconut Oil Scrub

Price: USD 6.99

Catch it Here: St. Ives

Description:

From America’s No 1 scrub brand* comes our first ever oil scrub. With pure grapeseed oil and 100% natural exfoliant, coconut shell powder to help nourish and exfoliate… say Aloha smooth, sweet smelling Skin!

Hi all, today I have a review on the new St. Ives oil scrubs for you! It comes in two versions, the Apricot Oil Scrub and the Coconut Oil Scrub. My skin personally doesn’t like apricot products, but I love coconut! I decided to try it after seeing some YouTubers rave about it, plus my skin has been extra dry with all of this Alaskan weather.

I’ve used it every other day for about two weeks, and I really enjoy it! I’ve seen a few articles going around about coconut oil being bad for your skin, so no worries because this is made out of grapeseed oil with coconut shell powder. I haven’t had any breakouts since using it, so I think this is okay for sensitive skin.

I like the smell, it’s not subtle but it’s not overpowering either. My one critic would have to be that’s it’s a bit difficult to get off all the way, but most of the oil gets absorbed anyway, so I don’t find this a problem. If you have oily skin, or live in a humid climate I would pass on this product. I think this is more of a dry skin/ winter product.

All-in-all, I find the scrub quite pleasant and I will be incorporating this product into my skincare routine!
