Keeping in the theme of staying prepped for Summer fun, exfoliating your body is pretty high on the list of importance. Exfoliating the body not only feels great but it super helpful for all those other rituals like shaving and self-tanning. If you’re body is nicely exfoliated it makes shaving and applying those self-tanners a breeze! I have used a lot of drugstore brand exfoliating products and they do an OK job for the money. Recently I have had the pleasure of treating myself to Chaacoca* Moroccan Black Soap – Citrus* ($25) and Moroccan Exfoliating Mitt* ($10) and it has been an amazing spa-like experience! Here’s some info from the company: http://www.chaacoca.com
“Chaacoca Moroccan Black Soap is an amazing moisturizing cleanser that exfoliates and cleanses the entire body leaving skin smooth and silky. This 100% natural detoxifying soap is rich in Vitamin E and organic argan oil. It improves circulation, revitalizes skin, and fights aging.”
The first step to using this product is hydrating your body in a hot shower for 5 minutes. This is important for the product to work effectively. The soap, which comes in a generous 8 oz tube, is to be smoothed over your whole body working in with a circular motion. There will be no lather, you are just covering your body with the soap using only your hands. I don’t suggest using any type of cloth or bath sponge, it defeats the purpose of the whole process. Leave the soap on your body for 5 minutes. This was the most challenging for me, to stand in the shower for 5 minutes and wait! I had to move the shower head spray to the side so I didn’t get washed off before the 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, rinse off with warm water and then it’s time to use the Moroccan Mitt!
The Mitt is used in a circular motion and layers of dead skin will roll off onto the Mitt. The texture of the Mitt will be rougher than your normal bath scrub but it shouldn’t bother you after a bit. Then it’s time to rinse again and wash off with your regular body soap. The end result is by far the most gloriously soft, smooth, moisturized skin you have felt all week!!
Overall, I am incredibly happy with the Chaacoca Moroccan Black Soap and Exfoliating Mitt. I have the Citrus version and Eucalyptus is also available on their website. These two products together create such a pampering experience that all of us women/moms/extraordinaire truly deserve in our lives! While I’m not heavy into self-tanning I think this would be a great ritual to use before applying self-tanners. I know for a fact this is great to use before shaving. Summer is the perfect time to give this a try and check out all the other pampering Chaacoca products on their website http://www.chaacoca.com
