Shorter hemlines, open-toed sandals and off-the-shoulder tops call for smooth, buffed, luminous skin. Here are the best scrubs, buffs, and polishes to get glowing.
This scrub is formulated with extra-fine sugar, organic coconut oil and super-moisturizing shea butter with a divine scent. Even better? For every Sugar Scrub you purchase, Hand In Hand will donate one bar of soap and one month of clean water to a child in need. This scrub is so chock full of moisturizing oils and butters, my skin feels lush and moisturized before i even step out of the shower. (Bless Babes might remember this scrub from the Something Is Blooming Spring Bonus Box!)
I’m ADDICTED to this totally unique two-in-one exfoliating body scrub and detoxifying treatment mask! I do face masks about three times a week… why should the rest of my bod feel left out? This scrub n mask contains crushed Brazilian quartz crystal to polish and soothing Amazon River clay to purify skin. The signature Sol De Janeiro scent (pistachio and salted caramel) is out-of-this-world. Use as a scrub in the shower, or apply to dry skin as a mask, then scrub off in the shower.
Remember this from the Spring Bonus Box? The Spongellé Pedi-Buffer is a buffer with a built-in cleanser that soothes tired, sore feet and gently sloughs off dry skin and calluses. It’s infused with rich extracts, skin softening oils and the scent includes notes of mandarin, lemon, verbena, mint, jasmine, musk, amber and wood. I’ve been using this buffer every time I shower, and my feet are the smoothest they’ve ever been! Plus, it feels divine after a long day in heels.
The O.G. sugar body polish. Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish is the original, natural sugar exfoliant and the unrivaled treatment for supremely soft skin after just one use. Made with real brown sugar crystals and natural humectants (fancy word for moisturizers) like evening primrose, sweet almond, apricot kernel and jojoba oils, this scrub whisks away dry skin while preventing moisture loss. Scented with ginseng root and peppermint to invigorate and citrus oils to brighten, this is hands-down the most luxe body scrub experience.
I’ve kept this Foaming Skin Polish in my shower since high school. Yu-Be in one of my all time favorite beauty brands (their Moisturizing Skin Cream cured my seasonal eczema) and they’ve been a best-seller in Japan for decades! This skin polish is formulated with fine grains of rice bran combined with bamboo and gentle cleansers to purify and smooth skin, while ginger root and ginseng extracts tone and balance skin. The scent – white green tea, geranium oil and camphor – is refreshing and clean. One of my favorites.
