Ok HOT MOMMAS, not sure how many of you have frustrating skin issues like myself, but if ya do, listen up! For the most part I’ve been blessed in the skin department for most of my adolescent hood, but every now and again, I get certain dry patches that are almost impossible to get rid of. I remember one year, it was so BAD that I was forced to wear bangs for the entire winter season. Ugh! Now it hasn’t gotten that bad for many years but here and there I must take a step back and try to get to the root of the problem simply because no amount of high end moisturizer, facial cream, Aquaphor, hell, not even good old fashioned Vaseline would work for these dry spells. Now during my trial and error phase, my husband, who is bald and has been bald since high school (by choice) would tell me to try his “stuff” for my face. St.Ives Apricot Scrub!! This stuff works wonders. I would never listen to him even though the man has beautiful skin. (why do we do that? Lol) Until one day, I did. Man, what a difference! Who knew that something that costs less than $4.00 at my second home (Target) would be the answer to my patchy problem? My husband apparently, but they have many types for various issues like: coconut and apricot oil scrubs for exfoliating, and one for clearing blackheads. The ones we use are “Fresh Skin” and “Blemish Control”. After the very first wash the difference was like night and day. Super pleased! So, if you’re looking for a new facial cleanser, exfoliant or if you’re just frustrated with your skin and need something “within budget”, give it a try!
