Happy May Day! May is the greatest month because of spring, Derby, and, most importantly, it’s my birthday month! I like to celebrate the entire week of my birthday, but, unfortunately, I have been super sick and busy with work and not in a celebratory mood. All I want for my birthday is a nap (and presents and beer).
As I have mentioned before, I wash my face every night. I don’t sleep in my makeup and neither should you- it’s one of the worst things you can do for your skin. I usually try new face wash every few months, depending on my skincare needs at the time.
St. Ives Apricot Scrub has been a staple in my bathroom routine since high school. It’s one of the most well-known and popular washes around. As much as I love it, it’s too abrasive for everyday use. Enter their newer and less harsh Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub.
The smell of this alone is worth it: it’s fresh and spring-like. It’s incredibly gentle but effective- my face feels clean and soft, plus I manage to keep my first layer of skin intact. The Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub is my new go-to face wash.
Avoid looking like Samantha!
I use it 3-4 nights a week (moisturize as normal after) and can already see a difference in my skin.
If you’re in the market for a mild, exfoliating face wash, it’s worth a try. And, at approximately $4.00 (depending where you buy), it’s a steal! Buy it here or in drugstores, Target, or Kroger.
What’s your favorite face wash?
