St. Ives is resurrecting its St. Ives Mixing Bar for Summer ’18.

This will be the second year for the custom scrub shop, which is located at 168 Fifth Avenue in New York City’s Flatiron neighborhood. The bar includes hundreds of ingredients combination, allowing for different lotion richness and facial scrub exfoliation levels.

This year, guests can create custom face moisturizers with trendy ingredients such as rose water and pink grapefruit and can add mineral shimmer to any combination. There will also be exclusive retail products, including bath bombs, lip scrub and an apricot rollerball fragrance available for purchase.

Guests also have the opportunity to mix it up online: the St. Ives Mixing Bar website, launching June 15 through December 31, 2018, will take orders for the full line of bespoke products and retail items.

“We are excited to bring the St. Ives Mixing Bar back to New York this year, offering our consumers the chance to once again create their own skin care products using our favorite natural ingredients. We are bringing back some of last summer's top sellers – and have expanded the menu with some new surprises as well,” said Suzanne Palentchar, director of marketing for St. Ives. “As a brand, we are always looking for new ways to engage with our consumers. In response to their feedback from last summer, we are excited to open an online direct-to-consumer extension of the store to bring the same custom experience of the store to fans nationwide.”

The St. Ives Mixing Bar will be open from June 15-Sept. 15, 2018. Store hours are Monday - Saturday 10:00 am-8:00 pm and Sunday from 11:00 am-7:00 pm.
