Halle Berry Revealed Her Favorite Face Scrub, and It’s Under $30
If you follow Halle Berry on Instagram, you know that she’s been doing a series called “Fitness Friday” for quite some time now. (The actor got super-into exercise and nutrition while training for and filming the upcoming movie Bruised.) But because she is also a big fan of self-care and — like most of us are doing at the behest of the CDC in an attempt to minimize the spread of COVID-19 — is staying home, she decided to do a skin-care edition of the series.
In the caption accompanying the video, Berry wrote, “To all those practicing #SocialDistancing, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the duty you are serving to your community. Things have been especially crazy, and self-care is an absolute essential right now. So today, I’m doing something I’ve never really done before, especially for you – I’ll be sharing my 4 step at-home facial routine.” She goes on to write, “Hope that y’all can participate and really enjoy that extra time to comfort and pamper yourself. You absolutely deserve it.”
In the video, she went through her usual routine and revealed some of her favorite products. One product in particular — the second step in her routine — is the Ole Henriksen Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub.
“It’s very eucalyptus-y, and you feel like these little grains — it feels like sand — you know, with attacking all this dry, dead skin and sort of sloughing that off,” Berry says, reminding viewers to also use the product on their necks. “You do it until you feel like all that dead skin is gone bye-bye.” She applies it to her “completely dry” skin, but the brand recommends using it on damp skin — an especially good idea if you’re prone to irritation.
“It’s one of my favorite, favorite ones that I’ve used for a very long time,” Berry continues, holding up the green bottle. “I’ve tried lots of them over the years, and consistently, this stays my favorite.”
Berry isn’t the only person who loves it — Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub is one of Ole Henriksen’s best-selling products. In addition to the volcanic sand used as the physical exfoliant, the formula also contains glycolic and lactic acids. The kaolin clay base helps absorb excess oil with the help of green tea, eucalyptus, algae, and Irish moss.
The best part? It’s not exorbitantly expensive. A full-size bottle goes for $28, and you can even get a one-ounce version for just $12.
