Best Drugstore Beauty: St. Ives Hydrating Vitamin E Moisturizing Body Wash

St. Ives keeps capturing my attention at the drugstore. They have so many nice products. This fabulous, moisturizing cleanser for the body is one of them! When I saw "Vitamin E" on the front label, I knew it had to be good, and I was right. It is!

St. Ives Hydrating Vitamin E Moisturizing Body Wash (about $4 for 18 oz) rejuvenates while it cleans. It has a luscious tropical, fruity fragrance that makes a necessary bath or shower a pleasure. It's enriched with natural ingredients, such as vitamin E, oatmeal, vanilla, citrus, and soy milk, specially formulated to replenish moisture and leave your skin soft and hydrated. This cleanser starts the process of adding daily moisture. You can follow up with your favorite moisturizer or try another St. Ives favorite, St. Ives Intensive Healing Moisturizer, to seal in that moisture!

When you bathe, which can be drying, you want to start the process to re-hydrate your skin. St. Ives Hydrating Vitamin E Body Wash is full of nutrients, but not animal ingredients, parabens, or phthalates (good stuff in, bad stuff out). It's packed with the natural antioxidant, vitamin E, to infuse your skin with protective moisture as it cleanses.

This cleanser can by used with your hands or a sponge, washcloth, or pouf. Work it into a nice creamy lather and them rinse. It will have done its thing. A simple way to start the day! There are 10 body washes offered by St. Ives. Vitamin E was my choice, but you can also consider others like Soy Milk and Lotus Blossom, Cucumber Melon, and Oatmeal & Shea Butter. See all of them at the St. Ives Web site.

One really nice thing about this - beyond the "experience" - is the nice big container. You can use this body wash lavishly without worrying about waste. It has earned its "best drugstore beauty" label!

I bought mine at CVS. You can find St. Ives in large retailers such as Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target, Meijer, Walgreens, CVS, Albertsons, Savon Drugs, Kroger, Winn Dixie, HEB, Publix, and Ulta Cosmetics - all of which carry a selection, but not all, of the products. Some online stores have them too. Oh, and I forgot to tell you: St. Ives products are made with all natural ingredients!
