St Ives 7 Day Challenge - Brighter skin and Natural Glow - Day 1 & 2

Hey guys! St Ives, the cosmetics brand challenged me to the 7 day natural beauty and brighter skin journey. They were kind enough to send a package, which will have different ‘day’ labels on each item, one for each day of the week. The aim is to encourage all to embrace natural beauty and to have more confidence with your bare face. 

DAY 1: Start the week by taking care of your skin inside and out
Water bottle
St. Ives scrubs
St. Ives, believes that nature is the ultimate antidote to dullness, and that why they created the original Apricot Scrub which combines the fresh essence of apricots with 100% natural exfoliants to transform dull skin into skin that’s beaming with life. So far I agree with this statement, as I'm on day 2 of my journey, I have used the scrub for 2 mornings and I feel my skin is significantly softer and less irritable compared to the my skin using my previous face wash. As far as I know my skin agrees with the scrub as I have sensitive skin, using this product is going in the right direction for my skincare.

DAY 2: Get your natural beauty sleep tonight and dream the night away
Sleep pillow spray
The Sleep pillow spray was a interesting product. I didn't know that there was something like that out there. The idea is to spray it on the body 15-30 minutes before sleeping. Apparently it activates the natural fragrance when you move around in your sleep. It was a cool product to use even though the immediate smell took a few minutes to get use to. 

Today is only the beginning to the challenge and is a intro to what I will be up to in the next 7 days. I'm looking forward to completing the challenge and I will get back to you guys in a week to conclude my journey and to show the difference, if there is any. 


  1. These products look super adorable !


  2. good luck with the challenge! I love the idea of doing something like this but my skin is so oily and acne-prone, I have to be really careful about what I use :( I love St. Ives scrubs though!
