Pros: Moisturizing, great price, pleasant scent, no parabens or phthalates, no animal products or testing
Winter dryness always leaves my skin feeling tight and itchy. I’ve become something of a soap junkie trying to find a solution. Walking through the grocery store recently, I noticed a display of St. Ives body wash products. I stopped to browse and picked up the Oatmeal & Shea Butter formula for dry skin. I was skeptical about the claim that it soothes dry and itchy skin, but the very reasonable price convinced me to give it a try.
I was thrilled to discover that St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter body wash really works! Despite the cold, dry winter we’ve been having, my skin isn’t itchy at all. I know it’s the St. Ives body wash that’s making the difference, because I ran out. I was itchy and dry again in just two days. I rushed out to buy more St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter, and my skin calmed down in just a few days. Now I stock up whenever I see a sale.
St. Ives has a mild, fresh smell, making it suitable for men and women. The scent doesn’t linger, so it isn’t an issue if you wear perfume or cologne. The body wash lathers well and rinses off completely, leaving you with a clean feeling. I've found that I use less of the St. Ives compared to other body washes, since just a little of the creamy formula on a bath puff or wash cloth goes a long way.
