Oh, Bath Master, why would you want to do that!
This body scrub won't get you drunk, but it will delight the oenophiles in your life. Crushed Cabernet Scrub by Caudalie ($35) is one of the signature offerings from the French brand that crafts skincare and bath products from vineyard-grown ingredients. (Thanks to user Kbella for the tip!)
The Crushed Cabernet Scrub is made from organically grown and very French ingredients, including crushed grape seeds, brown sugar, and honey harvested in Gironde. The formula also contains essential oils of juniper berries, lemongrass, and four other botanicals. It promises to smooth rough skin as well as cellulite. If you're not a Cab fan, fret not: Caudalie also makes other varietals, including Merlot Friction Scrub and a Sauvignon Scrub.
