And probably just as long to take off. Seriously, there was a lot of scrubbing going on. So, it makes total sense that the day after the day were people typically wear the most amount of makeup should be dubbed #ScrubOff day. And in honor of such a national a holiday, I present you with a few of my favorite scrubs.
St. Ives Apricot Scrub. There’s a reason this cult-classic scrub is a #1 bestseller and it’s because it minimizes pores and helps prevent breakouts thanks to ingredients like apricot, corn kernel meal, and walnut. Now, they have a new scrub made with green tea to soothe redness and control blemishes. Just as effective, just as budget-friendly; you can’t beat a $6 price tag!
Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Face Polish. This is actually a new product that I’ve been using and I’m obsessed. Not only does it leave you with crazy soft skin, but it smells amazing (from the lemongrass and neroli oil). Plus, it has the best background story—Nyakio’s grandmother worked on a Kenyan coffee farm, hence the main ingredient.
The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ. This is the first lip scrub Sara created in her kitchen back in ’05 and it’s still just as good! Say goodbye to dry, flaky lips and hello to a super-smooth pucker after just one use.
