KBShimmer-Raspberry Beret Sugar Scrub

Prince’s Purple Rain album cover also helped to inspire KBShimmer’s debut Indie Pickup item, Raspberry Beret sugar scrub. When deciding on a scent to match the moody cover, Christy knew it had to be raspberry, a nod to another one of Prince’s songs, Raspberry Beret. Like freshly picked berries, this scrub’s scent is sweet, with tart and juicy notes, and is swirled in shades of purple and pink to match Prince’s outfit on the Purple Rain album cover. This scrub will help your dry winter skin glow by sloughing away dead skin cells, unveiling fresh, smooth-appearing skin. Best used on wet skin, the luxe oils and butters in this scrub combine with water to form a lotion that helps to moisturize and soften even the most stubborn of rough, dry patches.  

To Use: Scoop out desired amount. Rub in a circular motion to exfoliate, rinse with warm water. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Use caution when exiting tub as floors may be slippery. Not for internal consumption.  For best results, do not introduce water into scrub and use within 24 months.  Storage in shower may reduce shelf life.
