Review of St. Ives Moisturizing In-Shower Exfoliating Body Polish, Oatmeal & Shea Butter

Doing Drugstore: St. Ives Moisturizing In-Shower Exfoliating Body Polish

I love body polishes that don't require excess force to work, particularly ones that use sugar, which is gentler on the skin. Over the weekend, I tried out St. Ives Moisturizing In-Shower Exfoliating Body Polish, Oatmeal & Shea Butter ($8), which contains natural sugar crystals for exfoliation, oatmeal to soothe, and shea butter for softer skin. While this polish is a little difficult to scoop out of the jar due to its texture (think of a dense Crisco), once it hits the skin and some water, it almost melts, creating a rich, spreadable lather.

The polish has a sweet almond scent and a finer, more dissolvable grit than the famous invigorating St. Ives Apricot Scrub ($4). Before shaving, I spread a little of the polish on my legs for a smooth, non-irritating result.

I like it for a pedicure, too. After scrubbing my feet with the body polish, I used my beauty shortcut to fake a real pedicure. A little goes a long way with this product, making for an affordable — and effective — drugstore find.

For my once-a-week exfoliation, I turn the hot water on for the shower and close the shower curtain and let it steam up a bit, but I don't get my skin wet. While I steam up, I use the exfoliator to slough off more dead skin than if my skin is already plumped up from the water. Its so invigorating.

how do you use it? just your hands? or loofah? cause when i use loofah the grains just sink into it, and when i use washcloth it doesn't foam at all, so i end up using half the bottle/tub.

Sounds pretty decent, but I'm trying my best to stick with eco-friendly skincare products.

I will stick with my at home sugar scrub I make. :)

I have this, but for me it's not nearly exfoliating enough. Rather than act like a normal scrub, I find that the sugar dissolves in the water, so rather than clean and freshly exfoliated, I end up feeling like there's a thin film over my skin...
