Good news, I received another Influenster VoxBox!!
This was a Holiday campaign following New Years, and was sponsored by St. Ives. Now as always, I did receive these products for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are completely my own!
Oatmeal Scrub and Mask
If you are used to their ever popular Apricot Scrub, this is quite a different experience. Where the Apricot Scrub has large abrasive pieces, the Oatmeal Scrub has smaller and gentler pieces, but significantly more of them. This also has a much thicker and stickier consistency, with a smell that is reminiscent of sunscreen. The way I chose to use this was as a mask. I applied a generous amount to my face, rubbing in circular motions, making sure it was fully scrubbed and evenly covered. The bottle recommends letting it soak in for 5-7 minutes. After the lime elapsed, I put some water on my fingers and rewet the mask, scrubbing in circular motions once again, and then rinsed! This was the 6 oz bottle, which retails between $3.99 and $4.79. It also comes in a larger 10 oz size, and of course comes in the Apricot Fresh Skin variation!
Refresh and Revive Body Lotion
This is a very summer-y smelling lotion! It smells exactly like pears, but not in an overpowering way. The first thing I noticed about this lotion, would be the way it dries. Most lotion leaves a temporary sticky feel, but this soaks up instantly, leaving your skin feeling super soft, but not inhibiting dressing! This was a 21 oz bottle and retails for $4.99. This also comes in an Oatmeal and Shea Butter Nourish and Soothe variation.
Even and Bright Body Wach
This product also has a very summer-y smell, but like grapefruit! It claims to be an exfoliating product (hints the "Even and Bright"), but I'm not so sure about that. The exfoliating pieces seemed to be few and number and extremely small in size. So if you are looking for exfoliation, this is not your best bet. But for just an everyday body wash, it has a very nice lather and is enjoyable! This was a 24 oz bottle and retails for $4.99. It also comes in a smaller size (13.5 oz) for $2.99, and comes in the Oatmeal and Shea Butter Nourish and Soothe variation as well!
Overall I enjoyed all of the products. It seems as if they are attempting to target two different seasons/skin types. They have the fresh bright summer scent line that I received the body wash and lotion from, and the warmer winter scent line with moisturizing shea butter that I received the face scrub from. Expanding your horizons beyond Apricot scrub, good job St. Ives!
