Moisturizing Skin scrubs
As a person with very sensitive skin ( I have occasional Eczema flare ups) I can really appreciate an exfoliator that also moisturizes at the same time. I hate stepping out of the shower and feeling like all the moisture has been washed away from my skin, and it also doesn't help that I kinda don't enjoy putting lotion on, as random as that is. So here are my two ABSOLUTE FAVORITE exfoliators that also do an amazing job of moisturizing the skin.
1. Lush- Buffy, $11.95-$22.95: This bar is my first love when it comes to Lush products. It's a body butter bar, but it has pieces of ground rice, almonds and beans that exfoliate your skin while you are rubbing yourself down with the very moisturizing and delicious smelling bar. When the Lush rep told me about this product he explained that I should step out of direct contact with my shower water, rub myself down, let the body butter sit on my skin for minute, then rinse it lightly with warm water. This is what I do and I come out of the shower feeling so moisturized. But I also make sure to lock it in with some body butter to seal the deal after my shower.
2. Bliss- Body Scrub Velvety-Soft Skin Polish in Lemon- Sage, $39: This skin polish is one of the most amazing products I have ever used. Similar to the Buffy Bar it exfoliates the skin while also leaving it soft and moisturized. Only the process for applying is a little different. You apply this polish all over your body BEFORE you get in the shower. But I would say do it while the warm water is running so the steam in the room can help the product seep into your skin. Then just sort of hang out naked for a few minutes while the polish sets in, then hop in the warm shower and gently rinse off the product. It smells so amazing and will leave your skin feeling baby soft.
