Despite the schizo weather lately (it was 31 over the weekend and 71 yesterday) I’m going to go with the calendar and start preparing for summer. I use body scrubs in the wintery months but not as regularly as I do during bikini season! Some women say “who cares! No one’s looking and I’m a mom.” Uh hello? I care, I’m looking at myself and I want to look as hot as I can for as long as I can. Oh, and the hubby is looking, too so it’s good to keep him interested.
Anyhoo, I received samples of La Mer’s “The Body Refiner” last week and gave it a whirl this weekend. The scrub is plushy, creamy and calming with a very light scent. While I was using it I didn’t think it’d exfoliate as well as it actually did because it felt so gentle and creamy on my skin. I guess you don’t need a heavy abrasive scrub to do the job (especially if you do a lot of waxing in the summer months) when you have pure diamond powder (each bottle has one and half carats of diamond dust!) and polished sea quartz as the physical exfoliants. Even though it’s made of fermented acidic sea muds it smells fresh and lemon-y. Worth a try if you’re looking for a luxurious body scrub that leaves the skin soft and glowing. Seriously now, $110 for a carat and half of diamonds sounds reasonable to me. At SAKS Beauty Place and La Mer.com
