St. Ives Apricot Scrub Gets Much Love From Me

st. ives apricot scrub 1024x587 St. Ives Apricot Scrub Gets Much Love From Me

I can’t believe how late I am to the St. Ives Apricot Scrub partay.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub is a perennial award winner (it’s like the Meryl Streep of the skin care world) and beauty gurus rave about it. I recently tried it for the first time and after I marveled at my baby butt smooth face, I immediately started kicking myself for waiting so long to give it a try.

The scrub exfoliates dull skin away for a smooth and radiant look. The 100 percent natural exfoliants (which include apricots and walnuts) are known to brighten skin; corn kernel meal, which is known to improve skin’s appearance, increases cell turnover. The classic scrub was also newly formulated to be 100 percent sulfate-free.

And now it comes in four formulas, so you can choose the one that meets your skin’s unique needs. (more…)

Dermalogica Daily Clean Scrub

Anyone who knows me knows that I love me some Dermalogica. My problem skin has never responded to skincare products the way it does to Dermalogica. Even though I test a lot of products, I always keep Dermalogica products in the rotation because, otherwise, my skin up and stages a mutiny. I recommend Dermalogica to my friends, family and co-workers so much, you’d think I was making a commission. So when my husband, Mr. Spoiled Pretty, was running low on his face scrub, I took the opportunity to introduce him to one of my favorite brands.

The following is his (first) Spoiled Pretty review:

“I’m not a fancy boy/fancy pants. I don’t use many grooming products. Shaving cream, soap and after shave are basically it. But I am a true believer in face scrubs. I think Chanel has awesome face scrubs and Nivea is pretty much the stand-by, but Dermalogica’s Daily Clean Scrub is one of the best I’ve used. It’s great for when you haven’t used a face scrub in months…you’ll feel like a new man, because it’s got a very abrasive, almost sandpaper-ish feel. After you use it, you’ll feel great, clean, and very confident. You’ll feel like a sexy beast…women (i.e., your wife or girlfriend) will SWOON.  I use it every day.”
