Friday Faves - Elemis Devil's Mint Body Scrub

I know Friday Faves is usually more of a list of favorite _____. But I honestly don't have anything to compare this to.

I've always had little bumps on the skin on my upper arms (Keratosis pilaris... so annoying), and this summer I finally discovered something that got rid of them altogether. (Moisturizing wasn't the key, after all!!)

Devil's Mint Body Scrub from Elemis is a wonderful exfoliator. It exfoliates without being harsh--in fact, it's really soothing (and I love the smell). It is $50.00 a pop, but using it only on my upper arms and not as an all over body polish, it lasted me a good two or two and a half months. (And no, I didn't spend $50 on it--it was a gift.)

I've been out for over a month and I want more, but I just don't have the $50 to spare for body scrub at the moment. I'm currently testing a couple of scrubs I found at Target. I'm hoping they'll work just as well, since they were only $10 each. Soon, though, I hope to have more of this in my shower, miracle worker that it is (maybe I'll buy myself some as a congratulatory gift if I ever sell m house). Click on the photo to get some for yourself, should you feel so inclined. Or, let me know in the comments if you want a review of the other scrubs I'm trying... everyone can use a good exfoliant every now and again. :)

Oh. My. Goodness. I have had those bumps since I had Ethan, but I never knew what they were. Thanks for sharing. I totally want to see a review of the other scrubs. I could spare $10, but I don't know about $50.

I would love to know how the other scrubs have worked for you. I have Keratosis Pilaris (I knew it had a name, but didn't know what it was, thanks!) and I would love it if there was an inexpensive way to get rid of it. $50 is a little much for me to spend on a scrub.

I love your Friday Faves. I might have to adopt the idea. :)

I would love to see your Friday Faves!
