I just realized that I haven’t talked about cosmetics or beautifying since Jan. 12; how very unlike me!
This has been a bad winter for dry skin and so I’m searching for products to help my parched hide. One of the first things I turn to is a good exfoliator to remove flaky skin. (Shaving your legs will also aid the cause.)
Laura Mercier Fresh Fig Body Scrub is a mousselike concoction with a rich, slightly sweet scent, which somehow conjures thoughts of sunshine and summer vacations.
Perhaps it will inspire you to plan a trip to Southern France. But the scrub does more than smell good. It buffs skin gently, has a light, airy texture and rinses away easily.
According to the company’s web site, this pampering body polish is made from natural fig seeds, jojoba, shea butter and honey. The fragrance blends essence of fresh Celeste figs, apricot nectar and ylang ylang.
Right out of the shower, I applied lotion to lock in the moisture and my skin has been baby soft all day long.
The scrub is $46 for 12 ounces (shown here is a 2-ounce sample size); you can buy it at department stores or online.
I received a sample of this product from the company. I tried it, liked it and decided to review. I did not receive compensation.
