Polish Up: La Mer’s The Body Refiner
If you want to keep your skin feeling and looking smooth, exfoliating is crucial. But here's the thing: most exfoliators are about as gentle as a cheese grater. That's why you should be ecstatic over La Mer's new The Body Refiner, a creamy body polish which uses fermented acidic sea muds to purify and clarify skin, as well as pure diamond powder and sea quartz to physically exfoliate the skin's surface and slough off dead skin cells.
Creamy and soft, The Body Refiner feels much like a lotion would — except, of course, for the tiny sea quartz grains and crushed diamond particles in the formula. As you massage it into your skin using circular motions, the product's electrically-charged minerals (tourmaline and sea quartz) convert that rubbing action into energy — which, in turn, stimulates circulation. The Body Refiner is so gentle that it will make those with sensitive skin re-embrace the idea of exfoliating regularly (it definitely made me a believer again!).
And how crazy is it to think that you'll be polishing your skin with diamonds? Seriously, The Body Refiner includes 1.75 carats of pure diamond dust. You already know what they say about diamonds being a girl's best friend, so imagine what a great relationship you can have with this product!
La Mer The Body Refiner, $110 for 200ml. Available starting this month on LaMer.com and at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
