Influenster sent me a customized VoxBox with three products from St. Ives for a Holiday Campaign (Yes, Holiday so this post is a little bit overdue)! I was so excited to receive it when my family said, "Quynh you have a package in the mail," and I had absolutely no idea what it was. Turns out it was a special gift from Influenster & St. Ives! Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the VoxBox itself, along with the papers in it, since it got soaked from a day of rain when it arrived. The best part about waiting to write this review months after receiving it is that it gives me an ample amount of time to test all three and truly share my opinion about my time with them!
Their St. Ives Even & Bright Body Wash has a sweet pink lemon and mandarin scent to it that makes it more desirable for me to use. This product contains micro beads that helps smooth and soften skin by exfoliating. Its this pretty light pink color and is gel-like substance. I live in a household of six and I think the size is very family-friendly!
My skin is weird because some days its dry and then some days its oily. Most of the time it is dry and I have to moisturize my face after I shower and before I put on makeup. The formula may be a little harsh or thick for those who tend to avoid these types of thick formulas... so this may not be the product for you if you're that kind of person. Since I have skin that is prone to acne with its open pores, it is crucial for me to exfoliate my skin as makeup tends to clog pores. St. Ives Nourished & Smooth Oatmeal Scrub + Mask has been the facial scrub I've been using for weeks because of its thick texture, which tends to work for me as long as I'm gentle with it.
What I love the most about St. Ives Refresh & Revive Pear Nectar & Soy Body Lotion is that it does not leave a greasy residue after use. It does the job of making my skin feel silky and smooth as it hydrates my dry skin. I'm always hesitant to purchase lotion because to be honest, I can't stand lotion that has a strong perfume scent or thickness, or else I'd just want to wash it off. This is a nice product as it is lightweight and moisturizing, but I do see myself feeling the need to re-apply more often which makes the size of the bottle worth it in my opinion. This has such a pleasant smell & formula where I will definitely make this my go-to lotion whenever I need more!
