Do These Green Beauty Products Really Work?
Sugar Body Scrub
THE CLAIM Unlike other, more crude exfoliators that can scratch your skin, these organic sugar granules in jojoba, coconut, and vitamin E oils gently remove dead cells while moisturizing your body ($29; malieorganics.com).
EXPERT OPINION The bits in this all-natural formula appear coarse at first glance, "but when the scrub mixes with water and gets onto the skin, it slowly melts," says Dr. Fusco. "I wasn't red or sore after using it, and I was able to put it on sensitive areas like my neck and chest."
OUR VERDICT We were sold on the fact that it wasn't dripping with soupy liquids. A palm-size amount rubbed over the limbs left them smooth and soft without any greasy film.
