Today I’m sharing my morning routine with you all and my love affair with St. Ive’s new oatmeal infused body scrub and body lotion! Overall, our winter has been pretty mild here in Connecticut, but this February really took a toll on me. Between getting sick, frigid temperatures, and lots of travel, you could say I’m feeling a little beat up and my skin (and body) are none too pleased! I’m partnering with St. Ive’s to help get me back on track and ready for a crazy busy spring!
Since I’ve never been a huge breakfast person, oatmeal is basically the only thing I can get down in the mornings (besides a huge cup of coffee the size of my head with almond milk), so I’ve been making sure to start off the day with a big hot bowl of it. Add in some raw almonds and dried fruit and I am HOOKED. I’ve actually been craving it right before bed too!
My mom actually used to put me in oatmeal baths when I was little so I grew up loving the comforting smell and the amazing way it hydrated and soothed my skin. Because of that, I’m usually a sucker for anything with oatmeal even to this day, so I’ve been starting off by using the body scrub in the shower and then lathering on the body lotion as soon as I’m out. Let me tell you… the body scrub in preparation for bikini weather has done wonders for me this week! It’s made with with 100% natural exfoliants to soften skin and smooth away dryness and my legs are currently thanking me (while I’m still out at the pool with radiant skin, thank you St. Ives). You best believe I even went as far as putting both these items in travel containers before leaving for Mexico for the weekend… I loved it so much, I just couldn’t be without it for days!
