I feel fortunate to be able to sample these products from St. Ives. The Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is definitely an award winning scrub. It is a scrub that deep cleans and leaves my skin smooth and glowing. I have been a fan of Apricot scrub since I tried using it years ago, I just can't remember what brand it was. It was my aunt on my mother's side that introduced me to that product. St Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is 100% natural exfoliants, sulfate free and paraben free. I use a damp cloth when massaging it over my face. My face feels thoroughly cleaned after using it that way. Then I rinse with lukewarm water. I have been using this scrub twice a week and that is enough to keep my skin feeling fresh and smooth.
The Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer hydrates and moisturizes my skin. I can tell that my face gets visibly softer and smoother using this product. They claim that it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I am only in my early thirties so I can't say that it really does that for me. I like the scent, it is not overpowering and doesn't cause me any allergic reactions.
If you are having a dry skin problem, you might check out the Intensive Healing Body Lotion. During the warm summer moths, I don't have dry skin problems but I do have them during the long cold dry winters here. I don't have the need for it now but I am looking forward to using it when I have my annual, seasonal problems. It is a 100% natural moisturizer and also contains an exclusive blend of natural healing ingredients known to restore dry skin with the skin-nourishing moisturization of Olive Leaf Extract.
