Smooth Skin with 4 Must-Have Scrubs

Bliss Lemon Sage Scrub

One of my best friends is getting married next weekend and her bridesmaids (I'm one of them!) are preparing our beauty routine for the big day.

Leading up to next Saturday, I'm going to heavy up on the body scrubs and exfoliate two or three times a week.  Currently in my shower is Bliss Lemon+Sage Body Scrub ($36 US).

Pink Ribbon Skin Care

Today I’m bringing you some skincare products you can purchase this month to support Breast Cancer Awareness.

Check out some of my perfectly pink picks to pamper you from head-to-toe!

CLARISONIC Pink Skin Care Brush ($195 US) uses patented sonic technology to gently yet deeply cleanse pores of environmental toxins, makeup and bacteria—without abrasion or harsh chemicals.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion ($35 US) softens, smoothes and improves the condition and texture of your skin. $10.00 from your purchase of this limited-edition Dramatically Different™ Moisturizing Lotion helps support The Breast Cancer Research Fund.

 

Shower For The Cure ($20 US) is Philosophy’s pink ribbon shower gel – a creamy all-in-one formula that can be used as a shampoo, shower gel or bubble bath. This long-time Philosophy favorite contains a touch of milk proteins and fruit essences to provide a delightful experience for your senses. Shower For The Cure represents the spirit of every woman and 100% of the philosophy net proceeds from the shower for the cure is donated to the Women’s Cancer Research Fund.

 

L’Occitane Limited Edition Pink Shea Butter Hand Cream ($25 US) is a super-smoothing synergy of shea Butter, honey and sweet almond extract, blended with the light and alluring aromas of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences. Texturally pleasing balm glides on and absorbs to help heal and protect dry or dehydrated skin.

Origins ‘Make A Difference’ Rejuvenating Hand Treatment ($18.50 US) does wonders for chapped, cracked, splotchy skin leaving a softer, brighter, more evenly toned, more youthfully textured look and feel.

 

AVON Foot Works Overnight Treatment (currently a STEAL on their website for $3.75!) hydrates overnight to provide 24-hour moisturization. Helps to heal ultradry, rough skin, and to reduce buildup of rough, hard skin. 100% of the net proceeds are donated to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.

Favorite L’Occitane Almond Products

Fact: Every October, the blossoms from an almond tree transform into a fruit which grows the almond nut in the center of it. The delicious nut is the main ingredient in my favorite body products from L’Occitane!

When I’m in the mood, I use Almond Delicious Paste ($34 US) in the shower to gently exfoliate my skin. It contains crushed almond nuts and sugar crystals, whipped with nourishing almond oil and almond butter to stimulate cellular activity while making my skin smooth. It’s smells wonderful too and I leaves me feeling like I’ve been in the shower for hours even when I’m not.


Pair this body treatment with their ultra-silky Almond Milk Concentrate lotion ($38 US) and you’re all set! L’Occitane blends both tradition (the use of almond proteins) and science (soft silicium to help support collagen synthesis) into a concentrated milk that nourishes and smoothes the skin. I really LOVE this product and it’s a L’Occitane best seller. I only have one critique and it’s that I wish it came in a bottle with a pump for easy use.

Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!
