Well, here’s an easy way to feel like I’ve done nothing with my life: when Lani Lazzari was 11-years-old, she was already a budding entrepreneur. With the help of a small investment from her parents ($2,000), she turned her basement into a lab of sorts, experimenting with organic ingredients from her local Whole Foods in an attempt to concoct all-natural skin products that would suit her own sensitive skin (she dealt with bouts of eczema). Today, she’s turned that into a line she named Simple Sugars. And make no mistake about it — the products she’s come up with are kind of phenomenal.
The Green Tea facial is loaded with antioxidants and anti-aging properties, and although it’s a sugar scrub, the oils make it gentle enough to use everyday (as I have been for a few weeks now). It’s been leaving my skin extra smooth, and soft without irritating it at all.
The Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub is another product with aromatherapy benefits (it helps you feel uplifted and revived), but grapefruit oil is also known as a great lymphatic drainage massage to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. It left my skin like velvet. I can’t wait to check out more from the collection now!
Another perk: her products are pretty afforadable ($11 for the body scrub, and $15 for the facial, in this case). Check out simplesugarsscrub.com for the complete line! What scrubs have you been loving lately? Do any of you sensitive-skinned ones think you’ll check this one out?
