I am a fairly practical woman and I love it when skin care brands come up with innovative skincare products but innovation does not mean that you sacrifice the convenience. Today I am going to talk about St.Ivs cleansing stick, at first I thought its a deodorant stick upon closer inspection I came to know that its a cleansing stick. I was really intrigued by the product that I purchased this one right away.
Here is some background information about Cleansing stick.
Cleansing sticks are solid face cleansers that look a bit like over-sized lip balm (personally, we like to compare them to jumbo glue sticks).
Facial cleansing sticks are usually made with a combination of natural oils and moisturizers. Like with other skin cleansers, cleansing stick formulas are formulated to achieve different skin benefits. At St. Ives, we formulate our Cleansing Sticks with 100% natural coconut oil, then add some of our favorite ingredients (like cactus water, apricot, honey, and green tea, just to name a few!) to make them totally unique. Here’s how they work:
- Cactus Water & Hibiscus instantly hydrates and softens skin as you cleanse.
- To detoxify and refresh skin, reach for revitalizing Matcha Green Tea & Ginger.
- Apricot & Manuka Honey works to remove impurities and restore dull skin to its glow-iest self.
There were three different type of formulas to pick from and I picked Apricot and Manuka Honey as I m all about glow glow and glow these days. The best part about this cleaning stick is that it makes my face squeaky clean and refreshed. I love how the stick smells and obviously how it cleanses I don’t have any problems with the performance of the product but with the packaging of the product. The mechanism is a no no for me, first you have to rub the stick onto your face and then make leather with the help of your hands and some water and then rinse. I know its simple and I know a lot of people like the idea of cleanings sticks but this one is just not for me, I love simple old school pump dispensers.
