St.Ives Scrubs

Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in my beauty regime apart from cleansing and moisturising because it helps to > 

1) Reduce post-acne blemishes 
2) Unclog pores 
(The more we remove dry skin cells on the surface, the less oil will stay trapped in the pores) 
3)  Smoothen the skin 

After trying these face scrubs from St.Ives, I'm sold! 

They are made with 100% natural exfoliants and naturally cleanses + exfoliates the skin. 

Each product has its own unique claim and benefits but the apricot scrub is my favourite because it effectively reduces blemishes and cleans my pores without drying the skin. 

Apricot extracts have high levels of purifying carotenoids and antioxidants so they are effective in cleaning, polishing and nourishing skin. 

This scrub also contains a special ingredient - corn kernel meal from dried corns. It is a gentle but effective exfoliant that promotes new cell growth for softer and radiant skin. Walnut shell powder also gently exfoliates, revealing a brighter complexion. 

The post-acne blemishes on my chin have been greatly reduced thanks to this apricot scrub! 
Plus points for the amazing fruity scent thats extremely refreshing and rejuvenating especially when I use it in the mornings! 

While the apricot scrub is my personal favourite, J prefers the oatmeal scrub that can be used as a mask as well! It is extremely gentle and great for sensitive skin like his. It combines creamy oatmeal with 100% natural exfoliants. 

The scrubbers are extremely light for this one and helps smooth away dullness to reveal supple skin. 

Here is J enjoying his hydrating mask! Simply apply product and leave on for 5-7 minutes. 

Last but not least, I want to share with you the green tea scrub that is great in preventing blackheads.

This scrub blends green tea, olive lead extract and 100% natural silica exfoliants like all other St.Ives products. 

Take you pick from the above range! There is bound to be something for everyone (:

Singapore stays hot and humid throughout the year so it is pretty normal to sweat, right?

Sweat is not only produced where we can see it.
It is also produced in the V zone and may cause odor so we should take extra care of it.

We use specific facial products for our face, shampoo and conditioner for our hair so doesn't this make sense that we use a specialized product to keep our V pampered too?

Lactacyd has been around for 25 years and uses natural ingredients (Lactic acid & lactoserum) that is dermatologically tested safe and suitable for sensitive skin. It is also clinically proven to provide delicate care as well as protection from odor and irritation with everyday cleansing.

There are several variants that caters to different needs, let me give you a short introduction of what they can do.

1) Feminine Hygiene - This is the most basic variant that is safe to use during menstruation or pregnancy.

2) Youth Reviving - Has firming benefits that is specially formulated with Vitamin C & collagen.

3) Soft & Silky - Has extra 10% milk moisture to help keep skin around the V smoother. Especially after grooming.

4) All Day Fresh - Is specially formulated with extra herbal essences for a long lasting protection

5) White Intimate - Has whitening benefits that helps skin darkening due to tight jeans/pants. Skin around the V will get fairer within 4 weeks
(Based on product use test on 200 Asian women in 2011)

6) Cool & Fresh (Which I'll be sharing about below)

I exercise on a pretty frequent basis (Its my way of relieving stress haha) so the Lactacyd Cool & Fresh is my go to feminine wash post workout. It contains natural menthol essences that leaves a nice cooling sensation.

The Lactacyd Cool & Fresh comes in a smaller bottle and I love how it's so handy & can easily fit into my toiletries bag on days when I have to shower at the yoga school or at the gym!

Lactacyd is having a 25% OFF any 250ml single bottle at NTUC Fairprice until Sep 30, 2016 and will also implement a "15 days money back guarantee*!
