If you’ve been following on my Instagram, you may have seen that earlier this week, I attended an early morning rave/yoga/breakfast event, topped off with the most covet-worthy refresh station and hydration station, courtesy of St. Ives. As you can see from the photos we snapped, the event was such an energetic way to start the day and there was so much to do. So why then, did I end up spending 45 minutes playing with product in the bathroom?

Here’s a little backstory for you:

When I was around 12 years old and just starting to care about skincare and beauty, St. Ives was one of the brands that I first discovered. In fact, their Apricot facial scrub still has a permanent home in my beauty cabinet. So when I came across the refresh station chock full St. Ives, I made a beeline. Not only was there my OG beloved Apricot facial scrub, but a Green Tea and a Pink Lemon and Mandarin scrub as well, not to mention ultra-moisturizing body lotions.

Throughout the years, I’ve tried a lot of products, but St. Ives has always had a place in my bathroom. Their scrubs are made with 100% natural exfoliants and give you an immediate glow and their body lotions are made with 100% natural moisturizers, instantly boosting the skin’s natural radiance. And when something really works, I keep it around for good.

Are you an OG St. Ives fan like me? What’s your favorite product of theirs?
