St. Ives Mixing Bar


The St. Ives® Mixing Bar is open this Summer in NYC. The first-ever experiential store from St. Ives invites guests to customize face scrubs and body lotions, choosing from over 50 combinations of 100% natural extracts, exfoliants, or moisturizers. The St. Ives Mixing Bar, located at 577 Broadway (at the corner of Prince and Broadway), will be open from June 16th, 2017 (originally set to be open through July 30th) - NOW through the end of September, Monday through Saturday from 11am to 9pm and Sunday from 11am to 8pm. Long overdue, and a fan of St. Ives Apricot Scrub since 1989, I finally stopped into the mixing bar on Saturday and picked my blend: Pineapple Mango Scrub with Coconut Shell Powder. My other fave? St. Ives Honey Mango Lotion, only available at the pop-up shop!

PRESS RELEASE: ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ (June 16, 2017) – St. Ives, America’s #1 scrub brand, opens the doors of its inaugural retail store, the St. Ives Mixing Bar, today in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City.

My mixing bar blend: Pineapple Mango w/Coconut Shell Powder
The first-of-its-kind, this 1800-square-foot store is inspired by the joyful, vibrant energy of nature and St. Ives’ key ingredients.

In addition to the mixing bar, guests can also experience an educational ingredient wall featuring popular fresh and/or natural ingredients, sink stations where existing and customized products are available for sampling and a mirrored infinity room full of life-sized apricots for shareable photographic moments.
