Caudalie Spa Inspired Body Scrub

Longing for a trip to the Caudalie Spa at The Plaza Hotel in New York City:

This Crushed Cabernet Scrub on their spa menu would be divine to get rid of dry winter skin and prepare for spring:

Crushed Cabernet Scrub
"The most popular scrub from the Vinothérapie® Spa. It is an ideal "starter" for your treatments. To regain your skin's radiance and softness, we have developed this scrub with a base of grape-seed, honey, brown sugar and the essential oils of the Contouring Concentrate. The application of the Nourishing Body Lotion combined with our Contouring Concentrate completes this treatment and leaves your skin clean, refined and perfectly smooth. This is an ideal treatment for a slimming program or after being exposed to the sun."

However, if you're like me and a spa trip is not in your near future a homemade version of this scrub is simple and made from fairly basic ingredients you may already have on hand...

Grapeseed Oil
Raw Brown Sugar
Bulk Grapeseeds (count this as an uncommon kitchen item!)

Mix together, step into the shower, scrub scrub scrub, rinse with warm water and follow with a very indulgent moisturizer.  Follow with a nice hot cup of herbal tea or perhaps a glass of red wine à la Caudalie!

If you're lacking in time, you can always purchase this scrub through the Caudalie website, Sephora, or other online retailers:

As you know, I love Caudalie products as I mentioned in this post.  Let me know if you try this and how you like it.  I hope it brings provides a zen moment for you and makes your skin glow.  Have a lovely day, xo Alicia
