Star Fruit for Sloughing


There was a time when scrubbing scared off some folks. Maybe it was the harshness of salts. Maybe it was the synthetic smelling scents. Or, maybe you didn’t know of the best technique to help you get rid of the oil slick left behind with some of those oiler treatments.

If you’re looking for a gentler scrub, sugars are the way to go. Pure Fiji’s Coconut Sugar Rub uses soft and gentle raw sugarcane crystals, which contain natural alpha hydroxys to brighten skin and are blended into a super rich base of Virgin Coconut, Macadamia Nut, Dilo Nut, and Sikeci Nut oils. You may have heard of the former, but the latter botanicals are actually sourced from local Fijian communities.

You don’t need to be a jetsetter to find this island fave. Skip the airport queues and scruff up with this lightly gritty rub. The part watery/part fruity flavour is sort of plum in character; the fragrant candied, scent makes you feel like you’ve scored a highbrow spa product on a deal. If you’re a fan of the ravishing tropical lushness of flowers – light with a faint nutty undernote – Star Fruit is it.

As you rid yourself of the dead layers of skin, Sikeci will get deeper into the skin with its superbly high in Vitamins A, E & F to soften skin. And, this scrub will leave your skin super oily, which is a good thing. Skip the shower gel and rinse off to let skin reap the rewards of a body oil. A multitasker for some of you who still haven't bought a body oil just yet. A bonus: a mini-scoop is included for good measure. And, remember with all things Coconut, the scrub may solidify when the ambient temp drops. Just warm up the scrub in a pot of hot water.

Spring is shining and hem lines are rising. Legs now matter! Consider adding Star Fruit’s sweet purity to your beauty checklist.
