Each holiday season, Jan Marini Skin Research releases a limited-edition exfoliator with an incredibly yummy scent—sugar cookie and cranberry orange were past favorites. This year, I was excited to see Sugar Plum ($88), which smells fruity and sweet, but not overly so (it has that can’t-stop-smelling-it, addictive quality), with the same power-packed formula the brand is known for. It literally acts like a refresh button for my skin.
Because exfoliation is so important for maximizing your skin’s full potential (it helps shed dead skin cells that are clogging the surface layer, making your complexion appear dull or blotchy and your pores look enlarged), this festive exfoliator is essential to your routine. Chock-full of glycolic acid and fruit enzymes (papaya and pineapple), it quickly gets rid of everything polluting your skin to leave you with a smooth, glowy effect. To use it, just wash your face and leave it a little damp, then massage the creamy mixture onto your skin in circular motions for 30 seconds. Rinse it off with a wet washcloth and voila! It’s that easy.

If your skin gets a little red, it’s completely normal—that’s the acid/enzyme blend going to work. Try using it twice a week to start and see how your skin reacts. If all is well, treat yourself to three times a week. Trust me, you won’t be able to resist that baby-soft, totally clean feeling.
