{Test This} ‘Delicious’ Sugar Scrubs from Two Good Scents

2014 July 29

Sisters Paula and Nancy Goodman have always enjoyed luxuriating in the bath or shower, with the help of divine products that make their skin feel and look soft and radiant. Especially partial to sugar scrubs, they thought many of the products on the market were too oily, too expensive or too harsh. So they decided to create their own line of well-priced scrubs, Two Good Scents ($10 for an 8 oz. jar), with just the right amounts of sugar and shea or mango butter to exfoliate, soften and polish.

And oh! The seasonally changing scents are heavenly. Think citrusy and spicy Timber, intoxicating Blossom and yummy Lemon Cookie with a touch of vanilla. After all, if we can’t eat the real stuff, one of the company’s “bakery” scents is the next best thing.

“I’ve loved using Lemon Cookie the last month,” says FOF’s Geri Brin. “The scent is subtle and the texture of the scrub makes me feel like it’s really working to remove the top layer of dead cells from my skin.”

Bye bye, bruises.

Our skin thins over time, which means our natural barrier against bruises does, too.

FOF Julie said: “DerMend helped my bruises and my spider veins! My skin also felt so soft after using it.”

Now is your chance to win a tube to protect your skin. Use DerMend ($29.99 for 4.5oz) twice a day on your arms and legs to help replenish damaged skin and help prevent future bruising. 10 FOFs will win!
