St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Wash - A Frugal Favorite!

Feb 26, 2010

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Moisturizing, great price, pleasant scent, no parabens or phthalates, no animal products or testing

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter is inexpensive and works well, a winning combination!  Anyone with dry, itchy skin should give it a try.


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.       

You can use St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter body wash and feel like you're doing something good for both your body and the planet.  It doesn’t contain any animal ingredients, and it isn’t tested on animals.  It doesn’t contain parabens or phthalates, and package is made of 20% post-consumer recyclable materials.

Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycol Stearate, Fragrance, Sodium Chloride, Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, DMDM Hyantoin, Hexylcinnamal, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Benzyl Salicylate, Polyquaternium 7, Limonene, Yellow 10 (CI 47005), Red 40 (CI 16035), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Propylene Glycol, Blue 1 (CI 42090), Colloidal Oatmeal, Sorbital, Sambucus Nigra Flower Extract, Primula Veris Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract.

St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter body wash is a frugal favorite.  It’s reasonably priced, environmentally friendly, and helps to keep your skin moisturized and soft, even during the driest winters.  Stock up when you see it on sale!
