By Sravani J. Mutha
Hi Beautiful ladies!!!!
This is my first IMBB post and am scared and nervous!! I wanted to write an article for IMBB from a while, but never dared to!! Finally here I am writing my first article!!! My first article review is going to be on one of my favorite products- St. Ives Even and Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub. I just love St. Ives products, they satisfied me totally in what ever range I used so far, its worth every penny.
$ 4.29 for 6.0 oz, I bought this at Walmart. I bought some St. Ives products while in India, only a selected stores sell these products.
Water (Aqua), Hydrated Silica, Sodium Methyl 2-Sulfolaurate, Glycerin, Decyl Glucoside, Acrylates/Palmeth-25 Acrylate Copolymer, Acrylates Copolymer, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Disodium 2-Sulfolaurate, Cocamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Fragrance (Parfum), Disodium EDTA, PPG-2 Methyl Ether, Phenethyl Alcohol, Polyacrylamide, Methylisothiazolinone, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Extract, Red 30 (CI 73360), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

St. Ives Even & Bright Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Facial Scrub exfoliates to help even skin tone and polish away little imperfections, including dry patches and dark surface cells. Skin is left brighter and visibly even toned.
This beauty product comes in a very sturdy plastic tube providing a travel friendly usage.
My Experience with St. Ives Even and Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub:
I am a die hard fan of St. Ives products, used almost all the products. The main important point of these products are, they stand for the claims they make!!! They are worth every penny spent on them. The product comes in a very decent packaging which makes you carry it everywhere, I usually keep it in my bag always, we never know when it would be necessary. So, here is my experience with this scrub, the product is a thick cream consisting of small granules may be size of salt granules, you just need a pea size and then you are done. A small size is enough for entire face, just massage on your face for 2 to 3 minutes and you are ready to wash. The scrub is very gentle and gives you a refreshing experience immediately after the face wash. While massaging your face, you might need to wet your hands in between, it lathers well but not like typical face washes. It didn’t make my skin dry, I normally follow up with a moisturizer so the same thing I did when using this, and am happy with the way it is made. I usually wash my face with hot water then massage it with a scrub then I will end up washing it with cold water, this gives me a perfect cleansing routine. It has a very mild refreshing fragrance which is the way it should be. From the first use I started noticing a fresh texture of my skin, am done with almost 3 tubes now and I am in love with product. I now have a perfectly toned face, it cleared out some of the blemishes I got with pimples, it even out my facial complexion. I have a wheatish skin tone then again some parts of my face appeared a bit dark, like around my chin areas. After using this product I noticed that gradually the darkness has vanished and now I find my face even toned . Thanks to this baby, I just love this!!
