Scrubs! I for one, love a good scrub down, whether it be face or body.My skin gets dry and dull, so regular exfoliation gives it a boost and keeps it looking brighter and in general, happier. Happy skin is good skin. My most recent scrub loves come from BVSpa by Bon Vital in the form of their Pomegranate & Acai Berry Salt Scrub and Pink Grapefruit Sugar Scrub.
