Awarded at the Victoires de la Beauté 2020-2021
The Gommage au sable de Fontainebleau was tested and approved by a jury of 70 consumers and was crowned by the Beauty wins!
The Scrub is inspired by the recipe for Cucumber Pomade. It is formulated from white cucumber from Bonneuil, an extinct species, specially reintroduced to the Vegetable Garden of Versailles for the formulation of Mademoiselle Saint Germain skincare. The cucumbers from the Potager du Roi are grown by hand, with respect for the environment and according to the principle of agroecology.
The Bonneuil white cucumber extract is unique because it was developed specifically to adapt to the exfoliation formula. Its high concentration of active ingredient (twice as concentrated as with an ordinary plant) makes it an extract of rare quality.
Product tested under dermatological control by an independent certified body:
- 100% find that the Scrub gently exfoliates
- 100% have more supple skin
- 100% do not have irritated skin after using the Scrub
Test carried out on 10 consumers for 21 days.
Evaluated and approved by a jury of 70 consumers as part of the Victoires de la Beauté 2020-2021.

A true 2 in 1, the Scrub can be used as an exfoliant or as a moisturizing mask. Once or twice a week, apply a few small amounts of Scrub to the skin of the face and neck, avoiding the eyes. Leave on for 1 to 2 minutes then gently massage in circular movements. On contact with the skin, the gelled texture forms a very moisturizing and fresh mask while the grains of sand gently exfoliate, smooth and refine the skin texture. Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
For an optimal care ritual, then apply a day cream or a night care.
