Our faces are the first thing we show to the world, and we get it - skincare is complicated. One day your skin is as dry as sandpaper, the next day it's like an oil spill (not really romanticizing your skin here are we?). But don't worry, we've got a 100% all natural fix for you.

Our sugar scrubs are gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. You can use them a couple of times a week (depending on your skin type), and BONUS - they're good from face-to-feet.

They will legit change your skin and in no time you'll be embracing that all natural glow. Got a skin type? We've got a scrub for that. Find your skin type below and discover the best scrub for your skin!

How to Use a Face Scrub: 

 

Best used in the shower (but a sink will do). Wet skin, take a small handful of scrub, rub on in a circular motion. Add more scrub as needed. Rinse, dry and finish with your fav moisturizer if you need a top-up! The skin on your face is delicate, gently massage the scrub on your face. Don't apply too much pressure, be gentle and enjoy!

  

How often should you scrub your face?

 

We always say - let your skin tell you that. Our all natural scrubs are gentle enough to use several times a week. Some people like to use them daily (applying gentle like we went over above) almost like a cleanser. But we do recommend alternating in your favorite skin cleanser during the week. Our fav go-to is honey. Really though, buy some honey from the local farmers market and use it as a cleanser. It's good for all skin types and will leave your skin beaming.
