It's that time of year when you're fixated on shedding your winter layers...literally.
Body scrubs are topping my list right now because with my arms and legs getting some more exposure, I want to keep the dreaded dry skin scales at bay.
In that regards, Ren Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish ($60) is just a big tub o' goodness.
First off, it smells divine...a fantastically subtle rose. Not an old lady rose smell, that would be just wrong.
Then there's the combination of all natural ingredients - think olive and almond oils, as well as cane sugar - help to make your skin feel ridiculously smooth and soft once you're finished.
I use mine after I've been in the shower for a little while, then I rinse it off and towel off.
For a more intense scrubbing, they actually suggest rubbing it in while dry first and then add water to rinse it away.
Either way, you're bound to end up with softer skin then when you started. A must if you're thinking about donning a pair of shorts or even (gasp!) a bathing suit.
