The Korean Scrub. What is it? How come you haven’t experienced it yet? I’ve been receiving Korean scrubs since I was 22. Now at 47, Im still in love with this ultra pampering, head to toe exfoliation. In Korea, bath houses or jimjibangs, offer everything from hot and cold tubs, showers, saunas and massage tables.
