cookie, I'd say just sea salt with some oil (be it baby or olive). just mix it until the runniness of it feels right, you don't want it to be like a lotion.
or maybe you could try and mix it with honey. Honey is supposed to be very good for your skin - I'd use clear honey and preferably from the health food store. I've never actually tried it myself, but it sounds like a fragrant and stickily good idea! Gonna try it today!
A brilliant little supermarket alternative: Lava soap for $4.49.
Hey there's this one from St. Ives that I've used, its really a face scrub but well they say you use it on your knees and elbows too! and I'm sure everywhere else! It's cheap too, and as good I say as the one that my mom has, from Origins
I like the St Ives one too (even though its a little harsh for my face)
I use Action Gommage Biologique from Yves Saint Laurent, and is excellent, is not harsh, but it leaves your skin renewed and smelling great..I love it
The Bath & Body Works has an inexpensive, good and aromotheraputic line of scrubs. Some are keepers.
ORIGINS has the besttt!!!!! 30$
origins has the BEST scrubs
Best Body Scrub
There are so many out there I don't know where to begin. Anyone have a long time favorite? TIA!
St. Ives Apricot Scrub ( the BODY version, not the one people have been debating the evils of in a different thread! ) - the smell is absolutely amazing. It's like a sensory overload, and is intensified in a super super hot hot steamy shower... mmmm. I wish the scent would stay on my body afterwards, I would love to find a body spray or perfume that smells like that.
mind you, I dont pay much attention to how well it exfoliates, but it smells great!
I used two body scrubs. YSL wow... really fresh, your skin becomes matte. And Origins body scrub, the result was soft.
Action Gommage Biologique from Yves Saint Laurent is similar to Guinot's Gommage Biologique. It's cheaper than the YSL, the only downside is that it is fragrance neutral while the YSL does smell great.
hi, the best and the cheap is real coffe, /use filtrated or esspresso coffe after you drink it/ put a drop of oil or gentle bath gel...REVELATION
I'm a firm believer in the Body Shop's satsuma scrub. I used to have tons of teeny bumps on my upper arms but now they're pretty much gone.
I am using two scrubs right now, one is Dona Karan energy and it´s great, the other one is a homemade scrub that i did using sugar, salt and coconut oil.
The coconut one leaves the skin really soft because of the oil and it comes dead cheap too!
The coffee thing sounds interesting. I think I might try that. There's coffee grounds in the new Victoria's Secret body scrub too.
Normally I use the Bath and Body Works spa sugar scrub.
Cookie, you could try mixing some sea salt with olive oil to form a paste and then using it like you would use a regular scrub all over your body, i use that and its really nice. but to get the oil off you would need to use body wash agen so yeah. and i loveeeee loreal exfoliatonic or something like that, its in a green tub and it smells fresh and fruity and reminds me of the seaaaa
I´ve heard lots of good things about Loreal exfotonic, must buy it someday
I don't know about Ottawa..but here in Toronto, Origins products are sold at selected Bay stores.
And as for Blisslabs...the only place I know of in Canada that sells it is Sephora which I don't think is available in Ottawa yet...maybe you can check the bliss website and see which stores or spas sell their prodcuts
