Prep your skin for spring with 3 amazing body scrubs from Tocca, The Body Shop, and Epicuren.
Spring is only a few weeks away which means one thing: less clothes and more exposed body parts. And it’s HKI’s responsibility to make sure you’re equipped with the right tools to keep your pretty in check well into spring.
If rough elbows, knees or anything in between has got you thinking about wearing full coverage gear year-round, think long and hard about trading in your unfortunate circumstance for one of these body scrub options that’ll whisk your rough patches away as they wake up your senses.
All it took was a press walk-through of Tocca’s perfume launches a few months ago for HKI to become a fan among fans and the love continues with Tocca Stella Italian Blood Orange Nourishing Body Scrub ($32, tocca.com). The blood orange scent – a twist on citrus with grapefruit zest, coriander & jasmine is great for relieving stress & invigorating dull skin. As you work the granules into your skin it releases the natural oils of grapeseed and safflower which nourish your skin. An excellent product for dry skin. Tocca, can you super-size this please – 6.8 oz just isn’t enough!
The Body Shop makes it impossible to get married to any one scent that they’ve developed over the years because there are too many good ones to choose from, but Satsuma made the cut this go ’round. Again from the citrus family, Satsuma Body Polish by The Body Shop ($20, thebodyshop-usa.com) reenergizes the senses as it gently removes dead skin and contains Vitamin C – an antioxidant that protects and nourishes skin. This is a great morning pick-me-up product for everyday use on normal skin.
Of the three brands, Epicuren is the brand trusted by and sold only by Medical Doctors and Licensed Estheticians in certified Epicuren Discovery® Retailers. And while Epicuren Cinnamon Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrub (click for location) comes in a rather utilitarian blue jar, but don’t be thrown off by it’s less than stand-out appearance because there’s magic in it. As soon as you open the jar you’re hit squarely in the face with the aromas of vanilla to calm and cinnamon to promote concentration…an overall treat for your senses. It also has the necessary humectant properties to really soften and smooth normal skin. NOTE: Epicuren® products do not go on sale and are never sold below suggested retail price. If you see them below retail price, beware that they are counterfeit and unauthorized!
