Candy hearts aren’t the only sweet pink treat to indulge in throughout February: It’s also National Grapefruit Month! With an aroma that’s guaranteed to offer a quick and citrusy burst of energy, grapefruit is the perfect addition to any winter beauty routine. Grapefruits are packed with beauty benefits that include vitamin C (for building collagen and keeping skin looking tight and young), citric acid (for exfoliating all of winter’s dead skin cells), and lycopene (a powerful flavonoid antioxidant, perfect for protecting skin from UV-ray damage!). We’re celebrating National Grapefruit Month with these five fruity (and wallet-friendly) products we love!
Yes to Grapefruit
From the brand that says Yes to Carrots and Yes to Blueberries comes Yes to Grapefruit, a line targeted at lightening hyperpigmentation and correcting uneven skin tone. While we totally love the refreshing scent and the fact that dark spots diminish after a month’s use, we are head-over-heels for the price point! At just $9.99 for a tub of the Body Creme, we are definitely saying Yes to Grapefruit.
Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit
Known for some of the cutest anti-acne product commercials ever, Neutrogena has us falling in love with the Pink Grapefruit Collection for Acne-Prone Skin. My absolute fave? The Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes—a necessity for anyone with oily, breakout-prone skin. The grapefruit scent (while strong) is energizing, and the wipes remove all pore-clogging residue, without leaving skin feeling greasy. (I prefer to use these puppies in the summer when my skin basically becomes a sweat-factory.)
Hugo Naturals Himalayan Pink Salt Scrub – Grapefruit
Dead skin got you down during the winter months? Well, not anymore! Slough it all away with Hugo Naturals Himalayan Pink Salt Scrub with grapefruit. Rare Himalayan Pink Salt contains the same 84 natural minerals and elements found in the human body (including magnesium, potassium, copper, and iron, all known for their ability to detoxify, stimulate circulation, and promote relaxation). Grapefruit extract provides an invigorating spa-like experience, while dead skin cells are exfoliated away and skin is left smooth, soft, and ready for spring.
Bliss® fatgirlsoap (Discontinued)
No secret that SpaFinder® Wellness loves Bliss® Spas and the brand’s cheeky, fun, and effective line of products. Bliss fatgirlsoap is easily one of the best for cellulite! Made with stimulating massaging nubs, caffeine, exfoliating jojoba beads, and, of course, “skin-vigorating” peppermint and grapefruit extracts, fatgirlsoap is a must-have grapefruit product for injecting some summer scents into your winter routine!
Burt’s Bees Hair Repair Shea & Grapefruit Deep Conditioner
Winter hair is thirsty hair! Give your locks what they are yearning for with Burt’s Bees Shea & Grapefruit Deep Conditioner. Natural shea butter and coconut oil hydrate hair, while grapefruit extract adds mega-watt shine. Perfect for these dry winter months and great for anyone who has a sodium lauryl sulfate-free beauty routine.
