Going Back To My Teens With St Ives

I was kindly invited to a St Ives event last week and boy was it a good one! Genuinely one of the nicest events I've been to! I was greeted with the option of having alcohol, or a smoothie and strangely enough I went for the smoothie! I had the apricot smoothie, which was so nice I had to go back for round two! We were even given the opportunity to make our own face masks, which was not only super fun, it was felt fantastic once applied. I made the 'Intense Hydration' mask (pictured above) which included avocado, honey and coconut oil, which are three of my favourite things! It smelt great, felt great and did my skin a lot of good! Feel free to make one yourself!

As for the products, I used to use the St Ives Apricot Scrub when I was maybe about 12/13 years old, and I think it was probably the first skincare stuff I used! It's great for younger skin as it's oil free and it contains 100% natural exfoliants. I think it's nice to take it back to basics for once, it's so easy to get caught up in the hyped skincare products around at the moment that cost an arm and a leg, that we forget that sometimes basics are best! 

I was gifted the 'Invigorating Apricot Scrub' which targets all skin types, the 'Gentle Apricot Scrub' for dry sensitive skin (both £5.10) and finally the 'Invigorating Body Scrub' (£5.49). I was really happy to see that they had a one for sensitive skin as my skin dries out massively in the winter. As I mentioned in my 'Get Unready With Me' video on my channel, the sensitive scrub is actually quite gritty for an apparent 'gentle' formula, however it didn't aggravate my skin at all and in actual fact it left it feeling really smooth! The body scrub is just as great if I'm being honest. I've mentioned in a video before that when it comes to body scrubs I like them to stick around. There was a scrub I had that disintegrated once in contact with water that was useless, however this one is super gritty and does a great job at exfoliating and getting rid of all the dead skin! 

I think I've rekindled my teenage love for St Ives! Why not keep it cheap, cheerful and natural?
