Oatmeal— I always say that if you don’t like it, you’re not using it right. It’s a pantry staple in my home, used in a variety of ways to help boost energy, and is another kitchen must-have that is stealing the skin care spotlight.

St. Ives just launched their new Nourish & Sooth line, made with oatmeal and all its skin-loving nutrients for nourished healthy skin. Believe it or not, oatmeal is incredible effective in fighting dull and flaky skin and can also work to soothe irritations. It’s famously known to be a great eczema treatment, which I often battle seasonally, by relieving itchiness and deeply moisturizing. So when the new St. Ives products showed up at my door, I was thrilled. It’s definitely time to get my skin into shape for Spring, and I’m turning to oatmeal to help present buy most radiant self.

The St. Ives Nourish & Soothe Oatmeal & Shea Butter Body Lotion has earned a permanent spot on my nightstand. Its made with 100% natural ingredients known to boost skin’s natural radiance, and is paraben free. With a rich creamy texture I love, this lotion sinks deep into my skin to moisturize beyond the top layer and keep my skin feeling great all day. A huge bottle is only around $4.99, so you best believe this will be purchased again and again in my budgeting household.

The St. Ives Nourished & Smooth Oatmeal Body Scrub is already getting a ton of use in our shower between Adam and me. You won’t find any microbeads here— it’s a 100% natural exfoliant with walnut shell and hydrated silica polish to away dry skin, oatmeal conditions while honey and glycerine offer even more moisture. This new scrub is gentle enough for all types while getting an effective exfoliation for smooth skin, but still works especially well for my irritated skin. I love the sweet smell, but it’s also available in Apricot for those who like to keep things fruity!

St. Ives wants to help you love oatmeal as much as you should, and they’ve actually teamed up with OatMeals (the world’s first oatmeal bar) to create the St. Ives Radiance Boost Bowl. It comes with rolled oats, dried pears, almonds, apricots, dried cranberries, crystallized ginger and honey powder— now that’s how you do oatmeal! It’s available until April 8th, so if you’re in New York City, give it a taste! You’ll also get a free sample of St. Ives when you order the bowl while supplies last.

    I have always herd that i should try this lotion but never tried it im always scared of trying new products

    • I totally get you, Kerona. Trying new products can be nerve-wracking, especially when you’re on a budget. But this one gives you so much for only $5 and I’ve personally been loving it! It does really well with my dry skin.

    I have oatmeal pretty much every day for breakfast, so why not use it in my beauty regime as well, I guess 🙂

    Oatmeal is one of the best ingredients for sensitive skin and rosacea.
