St. Ives

Friday May 27thHealth & Beauty Category

I always thought St. Ives was the cheapest, lowest quality skin care products.  I don’t know if they really are but I had that in my mind because we had it in our house.
This is a rare case of not liking the old package design at all.  I really can’t pinpoint why I don’t like it but some of it is the font of “St. Ives”,  part is the drawing of the mountains and featured botanical images that just look like weeds and in this case, the colors are just drab.   To be fair, it probably also reminds me of the low-quality,  pink-colored gelatinous  product that just seemed to slide around my face and not absorb like a “normal” moisturizer.
The new design is simple and non-cluttered, the font is clean looking and the color scheme is bright and “fresh”.  It makes you think that maybe there isn’t a pink glob of facial putty in there but a somewhat natural creme that feels light and refreshing.
Kudos to St. Ives for a great redesign.

    That old package brings back memories. My mom used to always have a jar of that stuff around.

    This cracks me up! I swear by the apricot facial scrub, but I’m so cheap I get the generic. :)

    Ya that apricot scrub always seemed to work well.
    I also thought they had some minty hair conditioner that was good.

    I’d like to ad that my sister and I did like the apricot scrub too. Sometimes mom would spend the big bucks and get “Apri” apricot scrub. I remember liking that more.

    I loved St. Ives products back in the day. It’s too bad they don’t make their shampoo any more. I loved the green kind and the jojoba.
