Finding a new product that really tickles your fancy is always a sweet spot in the day. Well, my latest is HollyBeth’s Grits & Honey Scrub.
Grits & Honey is a blend of organic corn meal, honey and organic sweet almond oil, resulting in the most magnificent scrub. I have tried many an exfoliant and, while there are many that I have liked, always go back to my simple-yet-effective milk and sugar concoction.
I have now seen the light with this fresh little scrub and may never go back to the homemade stuff. First off, it looks like something you could eat with a spoon, over ice cream or on oatmeal. Ok, I admit I tasted it – my sweet tooth takes over sometimes. Next, the consistency is so fabulous that not only does it make your skin super smooth, it feels really good to use to. Granular, yet super silky. It’s good.
Many exfoliants are made with very small particles of the exfoliating ingredient (crushed seeds, salt, sugar…). The corn meal used in Grits & Honey Scrub is larger particles, which actually ends up feeling a lot gentler on the skin. Less abrasive and smoother edged.
Honey has super healing and softening powers (try on chapped lips this winter for overnight healing) and really gets skin smoothed out. The sweet almond oil offers light hydration.
This scrub is for the face, but I used it on my whole body. Just couldn’t stop. Definitely my new organic cosmetic crush…
