My New Scrub Session
By Marci Robin, Senior Online Editor |
There are plenty of exfoliating body washes at the drug store, but before I found the new St. Ives Smoothing In-Shower Exfoliating Body Polish, I couldn't remember the last time I saw a true, non-cleanser scrub in the beauty section of my local Walgreens. Even though I have access to plenty of exfoliators, I lunged at it as if it was the last peanut-butter cup on earth. A few minutes later (for the life of me, I couldn't find the Q-Tips I'd come for), it was mine.
St. Ives refers to this Body Polish as "Mineral Therapy," and they're not kidding. The soft yet firmly-packed mix of sugar crytals and minerals makes me feel as good as my skin ended up looking. It spreads on gently yet efficiently to slough away the dead skin that's keeping your body dull and rough.
The end result is, as promised, smoother skin, with an oh-so-light scent to boot.
