If you fell in love with Sandy Santa last year (like the rest of us!) you’ll be so happy to hear he’s back and better than ever. The sand and sugar buffs and polishes dull winter skin to reveal a bright, toned complexion. This year we’ve made it even more beneficial for the skin by adding coconut oil, murumuru and Shea butters so he leaves skin feeling oh-so-soft and moisturized. The orange, rose and sandalwood oils not only tone and soften, but also make up the uplifting fragrance we missed all year!
Sandy Santa ($9.95 for 4.5 oz.) is a body buffer in the shape of Santa. It uses sand and sugar to exfoliate dead skin sells, plus it’s in solid form, so it also contains coconut oil and shea butter for softening and hydration. I wouldn’t say it hydrated all that much, and it really melts very, very quickly. I highly recommend breaking off just a small piece, going over the skin lightly, but then rubbing what you’ve melted off in with your hands, not the bar itself, as you’ll just waste most of it. It smelled primarily of orange oil with a little lemon, and for me, it read synthetic. Breaking him into pieces, I was able to get three scrubs worth of mostly legs and arms but not much else. I was surprised at the price point, given how few uses I was able to get out of him.
