ENG HAUT WEI SEID! (Shed your skin ..)

Gudde Moien!

This is by far one of our favorite products and we literally don’t leave home without it: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish & Blackhead Control. It barely needs an introduction since it has been touted for years by magazines (Allure, Esquire (men love it too), InStyle, etc ) and beauty blogs as the best (and least expensive) exfoliator.

Everyone knows that beautiful skin begins with a proper skin care routine and exfoliating is a necessary step to instantly reveal smooth, radiant skin. Over the centuries, the Swiss have developed and perfected their secrets for naturally beautiful skin. There are literally thousands of exfoliators on the market and while in general we are not adverse to spending money on beauty products, this scrub does it all and more for a mere $4.

It has a delicious apricot smell, contains about 2% salicylic acid with 100% natural exfoliants (apricots, corn kernel meal and walnuts) (NOT tested on animals, no Parabens and no Phthalates). Use it twice weekly or adjust according to the sensitivity or dryness of your skin.
Lightly massage a small amount in circular motions into your skin, rinse thoroughly under running water, pat dry and follow up with a moisturizer. It works just as well on other body parts (chest and back). 

For those of you with non-oily skin, St.Ives offers several other products:  the INVIGORATING APRICOT SCRUB (without the salicylic acid), a GENTLE SCRUB for sensitive skin and for the more mature skin the aptly named TIMELESS SKIN SCRUB.
