I guess I'm just greedy

I want it ALL! I want silky soft hands, I want my skin to radiate with a healthy glow and I want it to last. Is that too much to ask for? I definitely have the softness category under control thanks to various lotions and my darling HAND SCRUBS. I have never had rough hands but it is nice once in a while to remove deal skin cells and reveal the healthy new skin that lies beneath. I was in search of the ultimate hand scrub when I discovered Lemon Ginger Mint Manicure in a Jar from Carol's Daughter. Normally I'm not a fan of ginger but the inclusion of peppermint, vanilla, lemon, oils and butters prevent this scrub from having a strong ginger scent. Instead you inhale a light lemon and ginger fragrance as you gently exfoliate your hands with the sea salt granules. After washing your hands with warm water you will have a thin oily layer remaining on your hands. Once you towel off the excess water and oil your hands will be silky smooth. Although the glowing skin will soon fade the softness will continue on.
For those with tougher skin stay tuned for a product review on a more intense hand scrub.
Happy scrubbing!
This scrub will cost you $11 for a 2 ounce jar.
Do you exfoliate your hands?

Hi Jdiva,

You know I'm not a big fan of Carol's Daughter. Currently, I am using the hair butter cream and I know that the products are good b/c they are organic but the scents for most of her products are just too POTENT! The one that drives me up the walls would have to the Khoret Amen Oil its so GROSS!. My sister uses it and puts it in her mix of oils for her pre-wash treatment and I can' take the smell. I love a good scrub though(thats one of the ways to get super silky skin). Happy you have found a great hand scrub.

Hi Bellefille84,
I know the scents associated with some of the CD products can be a little on the strong side. I am big on scents and I don't like things that are too strong but the hand scrub is not as potent as some of her other products. There is actually a hand scrub from another company that works even better than the CD hand scrub, but the salt grains are more harsh so it won't be for everyone. Look for a post on that product coming soon.
Thanks for reading.
