My Skin’s Secret WeaponPosted: October 10, 2012 Filed under: Girl Stuff, This is what I think of | Tags: body butter, exfoliating body scrub, GRATiAE, skin, skincare, winter Leave a comment
In Toronto, the temperatures have dipped to the single digits.
Enter dry skin.
Those dry elbows, dangit! I was even called “chalky” by a coworker. My lotion of choice for these past weeks has been a hotel moisturizer. That’s not the brand name, it’s a mini bottle of grassy-smelling moisturizer from a work stay over at the Park Hyatt.
Time for a change, and my skin needs exfoliant and body butter.
Enter GRATiAE, an organic skin care line.
It’s like Breyers ice cream where there are only a few pure ingredients. I like that because loads of stinky chemicals aren’t good for your body.
I tried the GRATiAE Exfoliating Body Scrub ($59.99) and Body Butter ($59.99).
This is sweet, literally. The tub is full of sugar, and it’s the best natural exfoliant. It’s way better than that apricot stuff.
After rinsing, I noticed that the water beaded on my skin. It’s the sweet almond oil in the scrub that keeps the skin moisturized.
This is heavy cream, and that makes for the best fall/winter moisturizer. If you are a fan of sweet smells, this is it.
Tip for life. Make sure you moisturize right after a shower or bath. After your skin dries, it doesn’t hold moisture of the creams as well.
Oh, and make sure to get those elbows. You don’t want to be called chalky this fall/winter.
Here is the rest of the GRATiAE Story:
