As the -ber months settle in and the temperature starts to fall, we once again are reminded that cold weather and our skin do not exactly “vibe” with each other. Nobody likes it, but our bodies (especially our skin) take a big hit the moment snow settles in, leaving us with undesirable dry skin.
So what do you do? You take care of those dead skin cells, that’s what, and you do it using a body skin exfoliator. Feeling, and often smelling, like an indulgent treat, exfoliators usually work by sloughing away your dry and dull skin to reveal the smoother, softer, and more luminous skin underneath.
But with so many brands on the market, it can be tricky to choose which product you’d need to add to your showering routine. After doing our homework, here is our pick: Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub.
At first glance, this product may not look like much, as it’s a simple body exfoliator without the bells and whistles that more expensive products have. What it does do, however, it does quite well. For starters, the Dove brand is respected in the industry, and this product should only enhance that reputation. Formulated for dry and dull skin, this body polish scrub contains Dove’s signature ¼ moisturizing cream to scrub and polish your skin, while leaving it feeling healthy and refreshed. The body scrub’s whipped, creamy texture is gentle on the skin. As an added bonus, the product also comes in different fragrances, including velvety macadamia and rice milk, lavender and coconut milk and pomegranate seeds and shea butter.
But what do the people say? One reviewer said exfoliating doesn’t have to be as rough as it sounds, and this product is proof of that. Another praised it for being affordable, while another noted how effective it is even for people with sensitive skin. And many users noted how it left their skin feeling smooth and smelling fragrant to boot.
And the price should be gentle on the wallet, too.
With a 4.5 star rating, Dove Exfoliating Body Polish Scrub is our pick for top body skin exfoliator. After all, winter is coming.
