Any skincare lover knows the importance of exfoliating—especially exfoliating your body in the winter, when it's most susceptible to dryness. But finding the right one for your skin type can be difficult. Go too intense, and your skin ends up even drier and flakier than before. Or risk getting something too gentle which doesn't work to exfoliate enough. Fortunately for me, I recently came across Skin Food, a New Zealand-based beauty brand, on Instagram and thought I’d give it a try.
Skin Food’s Exfoliating Beauty Bar comes in the shape of a standard bar of soap—It has a slight curve to it that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, making it easy to use in the shower. Walnut shell pieces scrub to exfoliate the skin while manuka honey and oil soak deep into the skin to regenerate and moisturize as you go—no post-exfoliating body lotion needed. Almond oil and orange also keep your skin smelling fresh. After showering, my skin never felt softer. Although I love a good day at the Korean spa, there's nothing better than getting the same results in the comfort of my own home.
Tip: Order a few of these at a time… the bar runs out fast.
