St. Ives Nourished & Smooth Oatmeal Scrub + Mask

I got this product in an Influenster St. Ives voxbox, along with two other brand new products from newly released product lines from the same St. Ives brand. I have been using St. Ives since high school so like 10+ years, and I jumped at the chance to try these new products being released from St. Ives. I love them so, and they have worked a way into my current routine, and they might stay for awhile. 

This product is a scrub that can also be used as a hydrating, exfoliating, and smoothing mask. It is made from oatmeal and has 100% natural exfoliators added into the scrub. No small plastic beads here, natural exfoliants that are safe for the environment. Oatmeal is also great for redness and sensitive skin, so this scrub/mask is great for sensitive skins as well as other skin types. It is also hypoallergenic, and free of parabens. It is a full size 6 oz. tube. It does what it says by buffing away dull and dry skin, smoothing, and soothing dry skin. I love this product. It is great for drier skin during the winter time, and does what it is said to do, you can also find this anywhere and get it on sale most of the time. A great drugstore exfoliator that needs to be in your skincare routine. 

This gets an A rating from me. I will definately purchase this again and again and continue to have it in my skincare routine for awhile. It works well on my skin. I Love, Love, Love it!!

St. Ives Refresh & Revive Body Lotion Review


stiveslogo

St. Ives Refresh & Revive Pear Nectar and Soy Body Lotion

wp-1451333705590.jpg

I got a vox box from Influenster full of three new full size St.Ives products. I have purchased St. Ives since I was in high school, so like 10+ years, I have never been disappointed, ever!  I wasn’t really surprised when I tried each product that I Loved them all so much, I love St.Ives products so much, and will continue to buy till I die!

This line that was released, is made to boots your skins radiance and make your skin glowy. This lotion is made with 100% natural moisturizers like soy bean oil and vegetable glycerin. It also contains pear extract. It is paraben free and dermatologist tested on sensitive skin. the formulation is made to deeply moisturize and refresh your skin, while boosting radiance.

I love the smell of this lotion, it smells like pears and fruity goodness, it is not heavily scented it is light, but lingers on your skin for a long while. Which I love. The formulation of the lotion is light and it sinks into your skin very quickly, I was surprised when I put it on it’s not heavy but it moisturizes very, very well. I love this even more then the Vaseline Aloe spray moisturizer lotion, and the Vaseline Aloe Fresh Body lotion which are my go to spring/summer time lotions.  It makes my skin soo soft and it does give my skin a tiny bit of glow. I love it and will repurchase again and again.

This gets an A+++++++ Try IT!!

To Buy the lotion go here : St Ives Link

Have a Great Week,

New Tattoo


I got a new tattoo at the Minnesota Tattoo Convention at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, MN. I got a ribbon that commemorates miscarriage, infant loss, and still births. A half of a heart, and a footprint to honor my miscarriage, and to honor my baby that was lost three days ago. I knew the moment that I lost my baby I wanted to get a tattoo to remember the worst day in my life, and to remember that I am very strong,  and brave to go through what I have and to still be every bit of myself. I am lucky to have a great support system, and many friends that support me and help me through bad times as well as good.

Here is my new tattoo! I am in love with it and very, very pleased.
