Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true.

LAVANILA The Healthy Body Wash 2-In-1 Shower & Shave

LAVANILA+The+Healthy+Body+Wash+2 In 1+Shower+%2526+Shave LAVANILA The Healthy Body Wash 2 In 1 Shower & Shave

I lead a double life…hell, triple, to be honest. I have a full-time job, manage Spoiled Pretty in my spare time and I’m the mom of  a very active baby boy, Westley. So I can really appreciate a beauty product that does double duty while, literally, shaving time off my beauty routine.

LAVANILA The Healthy Body Wash 2-In-1 Shower & Shave is an all-natural body wash that prevents irritation as you shave. The hydrating formula – enriched with coconut and rosehip oils, as well as aloe – gently cleanses without leaving my skin dry or tight afterwards. It’s sulfate free, so don’t expect lots and lots of lather…just enough to let you know it’s doing its job and where you’ve already shaved.

The smell is divine. The brand sent me the Vanilla Passion Fruit to test, which is a wonderful summertime fragrance. It’s not too strong, yet not so light that – mid shower – you’re thinking, “What scent is this supposed to be, again?” It also won’t compete with your lotion or perfume, if you choose something other than the corresponding LAVANILA body products.

LAVANILA is a family affair in my house. They have a wonderful collection of products for wee ones too, which Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I use to baby Westley’s skin. Check out my review of The Healthy Baby Butter here.

LAVANILA is sold at Sephora and lavanila.com.

Olay Total Effects Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash Reader Review

beauty+bloggerati+olay Olay Total Effects Advanced Anti Aging Body Wash Reader Review

Hello, friends! Remember the fabulous giveaway I hosted a few weeks ago where one lucky reader got a chance to try Olay’s new Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash (available in two formulas: Deep Penetrating Moisture and Exfoliate and Replenish)? Well, the winner wrote back about her prize, and I wanted to share her review with all of you. So without further ado…

Olay+Total+Effects+7 in 1+Advanced+Anti Aging+Body+Wash+2 Olay Total Effects Advanced Anti Aging Body Wash Reader ReviewAlthough initially unimpressed with the Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging bottles (which look like they were left in the sun too long and yellowed) and the scent (which is heavily floral), once I squeezed some of the Deep Penetrating Moisture body wash into my hand, I was enthused. The body wash is thick, reminding me of conditioner rather than liquid soap, and applied smoothly with very little lather, like a silky lotion. My skin immediately felt softer and more elastic, changes that lasted through toweling dry and were still noticeable 12 hours later. I convinced one of my family members to product test with me, and she agreed that the scent, though not offensive, was not particularly pleasant and thought that the body wash had a remarkably creamy texture and left her skin well hydrated.

The Exfoliate and Replenish body wash was less heavily scented, a definite improvement, but I was dissatisfied with the micro-derm beads, considering them to be too smooth for proper exfoliation. Since they are suspended in a cream similar to the Deep Penetrating Moisture, my skin still received a boost of hydration, though not as much. However, my fellow product tester was much more impressed. She found the smell pleasant, thought the body wash had just the right amount of beads that delivered gentle exfoliation and reported that her skin felt soft after use.

Of the two, the Deep Penetrating Moisture variety was definitely my preference, though I wish Olay would tone down the scent a bit. My skin was noticeably softer and smoother for almost 24 hours, which is a great victory over dry winter skin. -Erin

Olay+Total+Effects+7 in 1+Advanced+Anti Aging+Body+Wash+1 Giveaway: Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Advanced Anti Aging Body Wash

Lemme ask you a question. How many anti-aging products are in your bathroom cabinet right now? Okay, humor me by answering another question. Of those anti-aging serums, creams and treatments – how many are for your body and how many are for your face?

A-ha! Exactly as I thought. When it comes to a woman’s appearance, certain parts of the body (like the neck, décolletage, hands, arms and knees) are most prone to visible signs of aging. Yet most women spend a disproportionate amount of time and money caring for their facial skin. This isn’t to say that you shouldn’t take care of your face; it is the first thing that others see when they meet you. But a well-maintained face cannot disguise your age if your body is looking like straight-up Crypt Keeper.

Luckily for you, me and the millions of women who have been putting all of their proverbial eggs in one anti-aging basket, Olay is launching the new Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash. The body wash is an all-in-one product that provides seven age-fighting benefits for the body:

  • Improves elasticity
  • Relieves dryness
  • Deeply moisturizes
  • Brightens dull skin
  • Evens skin tone
  • Smoothes rough skin
  • Minimizes appearance of dry lines

Olay+Total+Effects+7 in 1+Advanced+Anti Aging+Body+Wash+1 Giveaway: Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Advanced Anti Aging Body WashOlay recently conducted a study in which the impact of body skin’s appearance was explored in relations to perception of age. The study concluded that:

  • Regardless of the appearance of facial skin, if body skin is maintained well a woman can look up to 10 years younger;
  • Body skin is just as important as facial skin for positive age perception; and
  • Skin care technology for anti-aging is proven to benefit body skin.

Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash (available in two formulas: Deep Penetrating Moisture and Exfoliate and Replenish) won’t show up in stores until February 2010, but I got my hands on some advanced samples, and they’ve become staples in my shower. I particularly love how the Deep Penetrating Moisture quenches my winter-ravaged skin; the creamy formula and rich lather is a nice treat. The smell is also divine, subtly clinging to the skin post-shower.

This week, one lucky Spoiled Pretty reader will get the chance to shower their way to younger, more radiant skin. Olay will provide the winner with two bottles of the Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash (one of each formula). The winner will write a review of the product, which will be included in an upcoming Spoiled Pretty post.

To enter the contest, leave a message in the comments section. Contest open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Tuesday, January 26, 2010. Good luck!
