How To Exfoliate Your Face

Does your skin need a brightening boost? Our Radiance Face Scrub is made with freshly harvested pomelo from Corsica. (if you're wondering what a pomelo is, it's a large citrus fruit that looks and tastes much like a grapefruit – but it's not!) Suitable for all skin types, this scrub contains tiny granules that rid skin of impurities and help to unclog pores. It works to bring back your natural glow, and leaves skin feeling smoother and comfortable. The texture is also amazing... It looks like jam (but don't worry, it's not as sticky!) and smells fabulously fruity!

Foot Scrub

How To Exfoliate Your Feet

Our feet spend much of their time stuck inside shoes, so it's no wonder that the skin of the feet can become dry, hard or damaged. By using a scrub, your feet will be smooth and soften. Because the skin on your feet is thicker, there's no need to be extra gentle, so you can use body scrubs with large exfoliating granules. Sometimes you have to be a little rough to get rid of roughness! 

Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Scrub is also ideal for exfoliating your feet. Enriched with apricot oil and finely ground nutshells, it melts on the skin the moment you apply it. You'll love its subtle, delicate scent.
