Body exfoliator is something you’ll always find in my shower. Keeping your skin young isn’t restricted to your face, so sloughing off dead skin so the new, bright skin underneath can show is as important to your routine as anything else. Plus it’s a totally relaxing spa-like experience, especially if you’re using something fantastic.
Erno Laszlo’s Gentle Body Exfoliator smells divine. When I use it, I typically skip scented lotions or even fragrance just so I can enjoy the subtle scent of this fresh, almost citrusy scrub. The granules sit within a moisturizing cleanser that foams up and offers the ultimate in a close shaving experience.

Resveratrol, the super antioxidant found in the skins of grapes (i.e. red wine), is front and center of Caudalie’s patented skincare. Over time, it’s believed that resveratrol can help with signs of aging and radiance. Their Crushed Cabernet Scrub is super dense and gives exfoliation that’s completely decadent, which is why it’s the signature scrub at their spa. Crushed grape seeds and brown sugar blended with honey make for a deep exfoliation experience while the juniper, lemongrass, and rosemary essential oils add a scent that’s both spicy and exhilarating.
