I’m a big fan of the at-home spa — for reasons of cost, sanitation, product selection, you name it. Sidebar: I think different cultures have created their own rituals so people can sit still and relax. Painting your nails, for instance, forces you to sit still and not do anything. Ditto for Indian brides with henna on their hands and feet.
Anyway, this weekend I was thinking about how much I like my facial scrub. Back when I wrote my “In Honor of the Basics” post, I intentionally left it out because it’s definitely a luxury. I know there are lots of great drugstore-brand scrubs available — I’ve heard you can make your own with delicious sounding ingredients like sugar and strawberries. But I really like Laura Mercier’s Face Polish ($30 for 3.5 oz.). The size and density of the granules are perfect, and I love the scent. I’ve mentioned before that I have an oily T, but I don’t shine on the day of my weekly scrub.
Luckily, comfy-cozy spa and loungewear brand KN Karen Neuburger believes it’s okay to treat yourself, too — and they’re sending one lucky TNBTTGSY reader a pair of KN Chenille Lounge Socks (retail $15) to help them do just that. Tell me one way in which you pamper yourself and you’re entered to win. I regret to say only residents of the U.S. and Canada are eligible.
