My Favorite Bath and Body Products
Check back often, as I will be frequently updating with fabulous finds.
Carol’s Daughter Body Cream is my hands-down favorite body moisturizer. It’s so decadently thick, it’s like a treat every time you smooth it on. And the formula is hydrating as all get-out. If you’ve got dry skin, they’re the BEST. The Body Creams deeply moisturize skin while leaving it velvety soft…not greasy. You’ll notice an improvement in your skin in just a few days – no joke. Plus, they smell amazing. I’m partial to the vanilla-based scents, which are all elegant and inspired takes on the classic scent.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream is a #1 international best-seller from L’Occitane, and one of my personal favorites. Enriched with 20% shea butter, this super-creamy hand balm quickly penetrates to protect, nourish and regenerate dry skin. The scent is light, yet intoxicating. Smooth even the most hard-working hands with a blend of nourishing ingredients including almond oil, honey, coconut oil and antioxidant vitamin E. Whenever I buy the Shea Butter Hand Cream, I opt for the trio – so I can keep one tube on my vanity, leave the second tube in my desk drawer at work, and stash the third tube in my purse so I’m never without this little luxury.
There really aren’t enough superlatives in the English language to adequately describe how I feel about DERMAdoctor KP Duty Body Scrub. KP Duty is a dual-action chemical and physical exfoliator that blends the best of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion into a single, easy-to-use treatment. Dermatologist-recommended chemical exfoliants dissolve the glue that cements epidermal cells together, while non-abrasive synthetic beads lift away dead skin cells without inflicting trauma to the epidermis. To use, apply a small amount of the scrub to dry skin and gently massage it in with your fingertips. Rinse, pat dry, and marvel at the smoothness. You won’t believe that the skin you’re touching actually belongs to you. I’m an exfoliating fool, so when I say KP Duty is the best I’ve ever tried and you NEED to try it too, you know this is sage advice.
Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotion Sunscreens, available in SPF 20 and 40, give new meaning to “hot fun in the summertime.” They contain prestige minerals that add a soft, subtle sheen to enhance and highlight skin tone while providing broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. The rich and creamy formula features skin-nourishing antioxidants and Hawaiian Tropic’s signature coconut scent. The shimmer that these products leave on your skin looks so good that sometimes I apply them when I have nowhere to go. Seriously, I’ll just chill inside marveling at my shimmery skin. On a level of 1 to 10 (1 being blah, bare skin and 10 being J.Lo), the Shimmer Effect Lotions deliver a level 6 shimmer. They’re workplace and weekend appropriate. And - as if you needed one more reason to open your wallet – they’re only about $8 each!
