Blissful Balm For Scaly Skin

Right around this time of year, my skin is so dry and flaky, I can lose five pounds just by exfoliating in the shower. I've tried cocoa butter, insurmountable body creams, even olive oil, but by mid-afternoon I'm scratchy again. And I have enough discomfort at the office without a chronic itching problem.

Enter nettiescrub body balm. It comes in a happy little tin, and when I opened it, I caught a nice whiff of grapefruit. The consistency is sort of like shea butter, and as soon as I put it on, my skin took on a glowy sheen that stayed with me all day.

The body balm-and the whole line-is all-natural and handmade, and even though the balm contains all kinds of essential oils, it's not at all greasy and it absorbs quickly into the skin. Best of all, by day's end, I didn't feel like a molting snake.
