I used to hate St. Ives products. Their apricot scrub is way too harsh on my skin, leaving it dry and raw-feeling. But their new Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub is a whole other story. Formulated without parabens or phthalates, this scrub helps keep your skin clean without drying it out or irritating sensitive skin. The green tea soothes your skin, reduces redness, and protect your skin from unfriendly environmental factors and free radicals. I’ve been using it for over a month now, and I’m in love. I love that it has just 1% salicylic acid (just enough to fight acne without drying my skin out). It’s even gentle enough to use every day. All in all, I’d recommend it to anyone who needs a skin pick-me-up, or a cheap alternative to more expensive exfoliators.
Where to find it: Pick up St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub at your local Walgreens, Duane Reade, or CVS, or at your local big box store (such as Walmart or Target) for around $6.
