St Ives

I have previously mentioned St Ives Blemish fighting scrub here which is my go to face scrub. St Ives had recently updated the packaging on this and the invigorating scrub, but whilst in Sainsbury's the other day I noticed more products I hadn't seen before.
First up St Ives Elements Olive Scrub 150ml for around £5.10. Here's what St Ives say,
'Gently exfoliates while leaving skin moisturised. Olive oil and all-natural exfoliants. Purity. Vitality. Balance.

Regular exfoliation revels fresher, younger looking skin, leaving your complexion clear, instantly improved and radiant.


St. Ives Elements Olive Scrub, gently exfoliates away dead, dull skin. Mild enough for frequent use, your skin is left re-energised, feeling moisturised and smooth with a healthy glow.


Natural Ingredients: -Olive oil helps nourish, without greasiness. -Olive oil leaf extract, a natural anti-oxidant. -All-natural exfoliants.'


Next up Elements Warming Scrub 125ml at around £5.10, what St Ives say,


'Relaxes pores for a deeper clean. All natural exfoliants. Purity. Vitality. Balance.


Regular exfoliation revels fresher, younger looking skin, leaving your complexion clear, instantly improved and radiant.


St. Ives Elements Warming Scrub quickly heats on contact with water to relax pores. The gentle, all-natural exfoliants smooths away dull, dry skin, while mild cleansers lather into a creamy foam to rinse away pore-clogging dirt and oil. Your skin is left smooth & fresh with a radiant healthy glow.


Natural ingredients: -All natural exfoliants. -Sunflower & chamomile extracts for smoothing & calming benefits.'


Then there is the Elements Micro-Dermabrasion 125ml for around £5.10,


'St. Ives Elements Microdermabrasion, with micro-fine mineral crystals, smooths away dead skin cells to expose a younger looking re-surfaced complexion that is radiant and glowing.


Powerful yet gentle enough to use frequently, your skin is left feeling moisturised, fresh & renewed.


Natural ingredients:



  • Delicate micro-fine mineral crystals.
  • Chamomile to soothe & vitamin E to nourish.

Dermatologist tested and approved.'


I also noticed wipes that I had not seen before in Refreshing cleansing wipes and gentle cleansing wipes (roughly £1.52).


I love my Blemish Fightening Scrub so I am very tempted to give these a go. I am particularly keen to trying the warming scrub and the Micro-Dermabrasion scrub as well. I think the normal scrubs are such good value for money that I would have high hope for these new additions.


Have you tried any of these?


Thanks

I've reviewed the warming scrub which wasn't too bad for what it is and the microdermabrasion which was utter rubbish!
