The Sothys Beauty Garden line of eco-friendly products is designed to revitalize skin with the best of nature. While the entire collection is great, the Helianthus and Walnut Shells Exfoliant was our favorite. It banished rough, cracked hands and left behind soft, moisturized skin.

sukiface offers products that are 100% synthetic-free, non-comedogenic, free of petrochemicals and cruelty-free. We especially love the line’s Concentrated Toner for clearing any leftover residue after cleansing. The Exfoliate Foaming Body Cleanser starts off as a paste to slough away dead skin then morphs into a lathering cleanser to reveal fresh, new skin.

Toner, $32.95; Cleanser $34.95, available at suki Skincare
