Beauty Obsession: Molton Brown

Earlier this year, I visited the first ever Molton Brown boutique in Palm Beach County. The new shop is located in Saks Fifth Avenue in Town Center at Boca Raton. The London-based line includes scented candles, luxe hand and body washes, skin-care products, sleep remedies and even men’s grooming items. Inspired by travel, the brand sources its ingredients from all over the world and does not test on animals.

I also had a chance to test out Molton Brown’s Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Body Exfoliator for an article in Boca Life on the top at-home spa products. One word: Ah-mazing. The consistency is that of a rich, creamy lotion, with tiny brown beads of bamboo stem particles that leave my skin so smooth. The African ginger oil used in the cream has a delicious scent. I especially love to use this product to prep my skin for shaving because it’s not harsh or drying, like a lot of exfoliators can be. It shaves off dead skin cells and moisturizes my skin so I get a smoother shave. The $48 price tag might be a little discouraging, but a little of the exfoliator goes a long way. I’ve been using mine 1-2 times a week for several months now and I still have about half left. I highly recommend this brand based on my experience with the exfoliator.
