Review: St. Ives Purifying Sea Salt Exfoliating Body Wash

St. Ives Purifying Sea Salt Exfoliating
Body Wash  $4.99  24.oz
I have always had a soft spot for St. Ives products. Who among us has never had a tube of their much loved Apricot Scrub in our shower???

Probably, some of you still do.  And why not? It smells great, exfoliates beautifully and the price is so modest it seems implausible.

I am always on the hunt for a great body wash. I tend to go through it rather quickly, so if it's budget friendly, so much the better.  I had a good feeling about St. Ives new Purifying Sea Salt Exfoliating Body Wash after reading their press release from my friends at Kaplow P.R., so I asked to sample it...

I'm so glad I did.

I'm finicky about my body wash textures.  I don't like them to feel syrupy, like baby washes, nor do I care for a wash that is slick and thick.

Purifying Sea Salt Body Wash has a light, creamy, gel like texture.  The mineral salt is definitely in their, but it is gentle enough to exfoliate and brighten. My fear of losing a layer of skin? Completely unfounded. I like using it as directed on a bath sponge.  It creates just the right amount of lather and it has a refreshing scent.  (*Please Girls, always touch the ta ta's instead of sponging over your breasts...this is how I missed a breast lump, years ago.)

The other star ingredient is sea kelp (any affiliation with Creme de la Mer works for me).  These 100% natural ingredients are loaded with vitamins and anti-oxidants, guaranteed to brighten dull skin.  Other good things to know:

  • Well priced
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • Paraben free
  • Not tested on animals
All in all, it's purfect and eventually, when I get to the bottom of this generous 24 oz. wash, I will happily purchase it on my own...



  1. I saw another beauty guru recommend this too..I can't wait to try it out!! I bet it'll be great for those dry winter months ahead too!:)

  2. Hi Ann-Marie,
    Such a GREAT beauty bargain!!! It's my new Holy Grail bodywash. I couldnt be more satisfied with it and the price is a miracle.
