Blueberry Açaí Facial Scrub

May 19, 2017 in Category: What's New

If you follow health and beauty product trends, perhaps you’ve noticed blueberries creeping their way into more and more high-end face washes, scrubs, and lotions. And just as Fats Domino found his thrill on Blueberry Hill when he found the proverbial “you”; we found our thrill when we found our new Blueberry & Açaí Facial Scrub.

The magic of Trader Joe’s Blueberry & Açaí Facial Scrub lies in the blueberries and the açaí. Our supplier takes US-grown blueberries, purées and pasteurizes them, then freezes them immediately to lock in all of their natural antioxidants—and the purée isn’t thawed and mixed with the açaí fruit extract until it’s Scrub-makin’ time.

While this Scrub is exfoliating, save for a few stray blueberry seeds and its very slight general graininess, it’s not really its texture that does the exfoliating—it’s the alpha-hydroxy acids, or AHAs. We also include colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, meadowfoam seed oil, and various plant extracts to soothe and pamper that beautiful mug of yours.

Massage a fingerful of Blueberry & Açaí Facial Scrub onto your face in a circular motion, rinse thoroughly with water, pat dry, and enjoy the glow! For best results, use 2 – 3 times a week, and be sure to use a daily sunscreen while using this product (and for a week after discontinuing use), as AHAs are known to cause sun sensitivity.

You might assume that a Scrub this delightful will cost you an arm and a leg. Packaged in a thick, frosted-glass jar, it even looks expensive. The cheapest we’ve seen scrubs of similar quality retail for is $25.99 (yes, you’re reading that correctly), but at Trader Joe’s, however, we want your wallet to feel as pampered as your skin—so we’re selling each 2-ounce jar of Blueberry & Açaí Facial Scrub for $5.99. You’ll find it in our health and beauty section.
