We’ve compiled a list of our favorite scrubs, body serums, and moisturizers that will instantly make you feel more confident and refreshed!
Rejuvenate that Glow!

We really can’t say enough good things about the Lancer The Method Body Polish. It’s a warming dual-action body scrub that exfoliates dull, dry surface cells to reveal soft, glowing skin. Before hopping into the shower, massage a small amount of the Lance Body Polish onto dry skin using firm, circular motions, then rinse off with warm water. We love that the natural mineral, Zeolite, creates an invigorating warming sensation once activated by water!
Another one of our top-picks to polish and refine your skin is the Jo Malone Body Scrub in Geranium and Walnut. This gentle scrub consists of small, natural fragments of walnut shells to buff the skin to perfection - not to mention it also smells incredible!
TLC for the body

Not only can retinol be used for the face, but also for the body as well! A holy grail product that helps moisturize dry patches for more youthful looking skin is the Chantecaille Retinol Body Treatment. This treatment is infused with encapsulated retinol that promotes smoother and tighter skin, which makes it the perfect body cream to use after the shower.
Reveal your most radiant skin with the Clé de Peau Beauté Concentrated Brightening Body Serum. This silky and lightweight serum reduces the visibility of discolorations and uneven skin tone. Use after bathing or showering and after wiping moisture thoroughly off the body. Apply to skin generously, massaging over the body until well absorbed.

Hydration is key for achieving supple, radiant skin. Be sure to always lock in all of your hard work with the body creams, we highly recommend doing so right out of the shower when your skin is still damp to lock in all of that moisture! The La Mer Body Creme is an iconic formula that leaves the skin shockingly soft. We can’t stress how incredible the results of this moisturizer is as it visibly heals even the driest of skin. Make sure to warm the cream for a few seconds between the fingers and then massage onto the body using circular motions.
More diamonds for the skin? Yes please! The Natura Bissé Diamond Body Cream is an extraordinary anti-aging body treatment that provides incredible firming results. This luxurious cream nourishes the skin and is a favorite of our founder, Lily Garfield!

Transform your legs with the combination of Vitamins C and E which improves the texture, pigmentation, and evening of the skin tone.

For the final touches, apply the Sisley-Paris White Ginger Contouring Oil for Legs that is ideal for toning the legs, and leaves a satiny veil on the skin.

Last but not least, we cannot miss our sunscreen! The Revive Soleil Supérieur Body Broad Spectrum SPF 50 effectively protects throughout the day. Simply apply liberally to the body 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply at least every 2 hours. Sunscreen is the ultimate anti-aging tool for your face and entire body so if you don’t do anything else, at least put on SPF.

It’s so important to carve out some time for yourself and to pay special attention to areas that we may not have top of mind. We hope you continue to stay safe, healthy, and radiant!
