Sure, it's cuddle season, but sometimes a solid skincare routine is even more life-affirming. This list of best body scrub, inspired by Sephora and Ulta, will make your next trip to these stores easy AF.1. Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk ScrubStore: Sephora Rating: Four Stars Why: If you've had Internet access for the past few years, you're probably familiar with the Laura Mercier loose powders. They starred in our YouTube subscription boxes for months on end. This is one of the many products that put Laura Mercier on the map. What you may not know is that they also make an incredible body scrub. The soothing scent of coconut envelops you into a new sense of serene. It transports you to Laura's motherland, Italy, in a unique way and leaves your skin feeling as smooth as Ostia's stunning sapphire waters. The experts over at Cherie.com agree with our review, giving it 4.2 stars.
laura mercierAlmond Coconut Milk Scrub2. Ouai Scalp and Body ScrubStore: Sephora Rating: Four and a Half Stars Why: Normally, 2-in-1 products remind us of a bad Tinder date. We typically try to stay away from things that can clean our hair and body. However, this scrub from Ouai totally derails those rules. You'll feel refreshed and smell good all at once. Many people forget the benefits of having a smooth, exfoliated scalp. But, a treatment with this luxurious wonder a few times a week will benefit areas less thought of. 3. Fresh Brown Sugar Body PolishStore: Sephora Rating: Four and a Half Stars Why: Sugar is one of the most gentle, affirming things we can put on our skin. It exfoliates without being harsh on the pores. The lush, sweet aroma of brown sugar is enticing and inviting. It's romantic, but also self-indulgent. A half-hour in a bubble bath with this scrub will cleanse your soul and skin. Not to mention, the packaging is absolutely adorable. One thing that Fresh understands better than skincare is branding. 4. Cup O' Coffee Face and Body MaskStore: Lush Rating: Four Stars Why: This cult classic is hailed as such for a reason. Not only is the aroma of coffee completely irresistible, it's capability to leave the skin silky is unmatched. Our favorite beauty gurus have had this in their monthly favorites for some time now. We trust our influencers to provide us with the goods, and do they deliver! Next time you're at Lush, don't avoid the friendly faces as they try to get you a sample. 5. Clinique Sparkle Skin Body ExfoliatorStore: Sephora Rating: Four and a Half Stars Why: This as-needed formula is designed to leave your skin glistening. Clinique is tried-and-true. It's reliable. We've all been familiarized with their amazing moisturizers that hail the shelves of Sephora and Ulta. It should be no surprise that they could deliver an equally amazing scrub. They understand what it takes to be an industry leader. And, that's what has kept them at the top for so long.
CLINIQUESparkle Skin Body Exfoliator6. Soap & Glory Magnificoco Buff and Ready Body ScrubStore: Ulta Rating: Four and a Half Stars Why: Soap & Glory is typically on the more affordable side of the spectrum. This shouldn't set it aside or write it off, however. Their products are exactly the perfect balance of luxury and simplicity. It cools the skin while it exfoliates it. The scent of coconut is soothing in its own right. That's why so many of the best scrubs rely on its amazing properties.
SOAP & GLORYMagnificoco Buff and Ready Body Scrub7. Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body PolishStore: Sephora Rating: Four Stars Why: Again, the powerful effects of coconut oil are evident. Combining this with rose oil gently nourishes the skin. It erases any ounce of leftover winter dryness while reminding you of a romantic red rose. This product also gets bonus points for its packaging. It's cute and minimalistic and would look great on any countertop or inside any skincare fridge. The price point is not too shabby either, putting it on the more affordable side of the spectrum.
HERBIVORECoco Rose Exfoliating Body Scrub8. Skinfix Resurface+ Glycolic Renewing ScrubStore: Sephora Rating: Five Stars Why: This product is one out of two that made our list and received 5-stars. This was not in vain. Skinfix is an expert at providing quality that is also eco-friendly. Gone are the days when eco-friendly and cute could not coexist. They emphasize clean skincare for the body and the planet while keeping their branding aesthetically pleasing. Aside from that, it's recommended by dermatologists. 9. First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHAStore: Sephora Rating: Four and a Half Stars Why: First Aid Beauty is another brand that has mastered the art of eco-friendly aesthetics. You may have seen this one in a favorites video or skincare routine. Gurus love it because of these things, but they also love its overall effectiveness. Do you have unsightly, itchy bumps from the chill of the winter weather? The product is called a "bump eraser" for a reason. It's like waving a magic wand and: poof! They're gone.
FIRST AID BEAUTYKP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA10. The Body Shop Juicy Pear Body ScrubStore: Ulta Rating: Five Stars Why: We definitely saved the best for last here. Throughout this list, we've gone into detail about many scrubs that often share the same properties. This one stands out. It's not coconut or coffee or rose-scented. No, this unique product used pear extract and imported sugars. These ingredients take you on a tropical vacation in the middle of your daily routine. We've already discussed the benefits of brown sugar on the skin. Organic sugar works similarly. It's gentle but effective in eliminating dryness and leaving you glowing.
THE BODY SHOPJuicy Pear Body ScrubThese body scrubs will keep you refreshed and smooth even on the darkest winter nights. Whether you're preparing for a cuddle sesh or simply pampering yourself, each of them will have something you need. Keeping them in a skincare fridge is the newest trend, but the traditional countertop works just fine as well. All that matters is that they're integrated into your skincare routine for fresh, smoothly exfoliated skin!

What is the best way to apply spf and how often?
Understanding what products to use in your routine can be overwhelming, add trying to figure out how much sunscreen you need to put on your face makes it all that more complicated. Thankfully there are some tips to know exactly how much sun protection is the right amount. Proper sun protection is extremely important for everyone, especially if you are also into skincare or use actives (also known as exfoliants or acids). The best way to apply sunscreen or spf is to use the 2 to 3 finger rule for liquid sunscreens. This rule was popularized by Tiara aka MakeupforWOC who is an esthetician on Twitter and Instagram. This method involves using the index and middle finger length of sunscreen, with the option of adding your ring finger to ensure full sun protection for your face, neck and ears. To make sure you have enough sun protection before leaving the house use a full teaspoon to cover the face, neck and ears, then apply whatever else is left over on the back of your hands and half a teaspoon for only your face. When applying sunscreen, make sure there is an even application, rubbing it into the skin and wait 15 minutes before any sun exposure. Reapplication is recommended every 2 hours after the initial application. If you are also wearing makeup there are the options of spray, powder, cream/lotion for spf. The rule of thumb for reapplication of sunscreen is to blot your face before, as the oils from your face can breakdown the spf. My two fav sunscreens are LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ and EVERYDAY HUMANS - Resting Beach Face SPF30 Sunscreen Serum #CheriePartner

Dermatologist opinion: facial oil dupe
Marula oil is extracted from the marula tree nut found in Africa. Benefits of marula oil: ✔️Rich in antioxidants- which help fight off free radicals from pollution and UV exposure. ✔️Anti-aging – the antioxidants also help with its anti-aging properties to help keep the skin looking youthful. ✔️Rich in fatty acids- (oleic and linoleic fatty acids) that soften and moisturize the skin. ✔️Lightweight - What’s great about marula oil is that it hydrates the skin and absorbs well without being too heavy or greasy. ✔️Immediate glow- I definitely notice my skin is radiating after I wear this oil. I love to use this instead of a moisturizer as a last step in my nighttime skincare routine, especially during the winter months! DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil Drunk elephant - $72. yes the packaging is beautiful, but that price point is way too high. It only has one ingredient: marula oil. Why is it so expensive? It is likely due to the processing. It is cold pressed with a patented process of unheated extraction. It is unclear if this process is necessary to maintain all of the benefits of marula oil. The Ordinary - 100% Cold Pressed Virgin Marula Oil Ordinary- $8. Also 100% cold pressed marula oil. The processing may be slightly different. The application is a little less light weight, and for this reason slower to absorb, but still blends easily into the skin and gives an immediate glow. Final thoughts: after trying both, I would choose the ordinary product because they are both so similar! What would you choose?
Textured Skin?? 3 Tried & Tested Products!
Up until I really started understanding🤔my skin and how certain ingredients work... I always had textured skin due to acne, blemishes and lack of regular exfoliation. Well here’s my experiences from lessons learnt throughout the years for all those people who are on the same boat as I once was.. I’ve learnt the key🔑to smoother skin is knowing the underlying issue and the reason behind your skin’s uneven texture and incorporating exfoliants in a regulated skincare routine. When treating the uneven skin texture, you need to ask yourself whether or not you are using exfoliants (both physical and chemical)? If your answer is NO, then you have bumpy skin and you need to start incorporating an exfoliant into your skincare routine. Lactic acid is a good place to start as it suits all skin types. However, what really works for my skin type (oily/combination) is Salicylic acid. Be sure to start with an exfoliant by using once or twice a week and only take it up to using it 3 times a week. No more than this please ☺️ If your answer is YES, then ask yourself: “How many times am I using the exfoliants and how strong are they?” If you’re using exfoliants more than 2 to 3 times a week and you still have bumpy/textured skin then there’s a high chance your skin’s barrier is not happy. Work on repairing and strengthening your skin barrier by using products geared towards providing hydration💦and moisturization. Periodically, exfoliating definitely will help improve your skin texture! Here are some of My Tried & Tested Products for bump-free skin: 1. GOOD MOLECULES - Pineapple Exfoliating Powder 2. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Peptide 21 Amino Acid Exfoliating Peel Pads 4. dermalogica - Hydro Masque Exfoliant Follow & Glow! ✨ #cheriepartner
