A couple of months ago I popped into Bluemercury looking for a new body scrub. I wanted something that wasn’t too abrasive or harsh for my skin. And of course, it needed to smell amazing. My friend Kara, who runs her own successful beauty blog, was with me to assist and I just knew I was going to find the perfect one.
Let me introduce you to the Indie Lee Coconut Citrus Scrub. It’s an all-natural blend of coconut and lemongrass with a sugar based texture. The first thing that came to mind when I smelled it was my honeymoon in Mauritius. It literally smells like a tropical paradise. And since Mauritius is known for its sugarcane production, I knew I couldn’t leave without it. I have been using it ever since and even turned Greg on to it. Dare I say, he uses it more than I do!
I’ve found sugar scrubs to be more effective – yet gentle – than salt scrubs. If you have sensitive or dry skin, you probably feel the same way. I like that I can even use this scrub on my lips AND that it comes with a wooden scoop. It makes exfoliating that much more luxurious. I’d never heard of Indie Lee before and according to the sales associate at Bluemercury, they only recently started stocking it. As you can tell from the photos, we are almost out and I’m intrigued to pick up a couple more Indie Lee products.
My skin has been acting up more than ever (why though?!?) and I’m gravitating towards natural skincare because of it. I’ve been using a couple different products recently, some of which I mentioned last here. Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see such a roundup of my current favorite natural skincare products! You know I’m a sucker for trying out skincare and I’m really intrigued to see what results all natural products can give me. Oh and if you have natural beauty product recommendations, send them my way!
