Drugstore Beauty: St. Ives Apricot Scrub

I love trying out new beauty trends, but there's also something comforting about a tried and true product that's been with you for years. St. Ives Apricot Scrub (just $4 at drugstores) has been part of my shower routine -- three times a week -- since 7th grade. It's true! Apricot adds the antioxidants that nourish your skin, corn kernel meal (flour from dried corn) and ground walnut shells are the exfoliants that help scrub off old skin and promote cell regeneration (that makes you glowy).

There's something really satisfying about the fresh smell and satisfying scrub of St. Ives. They make other kinds, too, like Green Tea Scrub and extra-gentle varieties. I'm sure those are also great, but I'm a nostalgia girl, and I'll stick with invigorating apricot. I highly recommend that you make this one part of your routine.
