The Princess And The Peony

peony6 The Princess And The Peony
Peony is one of my favorite flowers (ranunculus and hydrangea are the others, if you must know) – so I suppose it’s fitting that my new beauty favorites are the peony-scented body products from Red Flower.

peonyWASH L The Princess And The PeonyThe Japanese Peony Cleansing Body Wash and Moisturizing Body Lotion soften and delicately fragrance skin with an essential oil blend of Bulgarian rose, lily-of-the-valley, lemon blossom, and Japanese peony.

And I love the fact that the brand’s cleansing body washes and moisturizing body lotions are created with pure flower extracts and nourishing botanicals – so the list of ingredients doesn’t leave me confused and tongue-tied.

Red Flower is available at redflower.com.

Tea Time

A few weeks back, I attended the TotalBeauty.com launch event at Space NK in SoHo, NYC. My trip up from Philadelphia was, let’s put it this way, an adventure. So upon crossing the threshold into the store, I quickly downed two glasses of champagne and perused the inventory with my fellow beauty bloggers – shout out to Marina, Elke, Julia, and Antonia for putting me at ease and making me feel so welcome!

I was introduced to many new brands and products that night, but the one that I immediately regretted not buying was the Thai Tea Body Wash from Philip B. Seriously, I was on Amtrak riding back to Philly thinking, “Why didn’t I get that body wash? It smelled sooo yummy.” After a week of hemming and hawing, I broke down and decided I had to have it; and it’s been a fixture in my shower caddy ever since.

thaitea Tea TimeInspired by Philip B.’s journey through Asia, Thai Tea Body Wash is enriched with 20% pure botanical plant extracts indigenous to Thailand. Ingredients include Thai Tea (rich in antioxidants), honey (moisturizes), coconut oil (softens skin), milk proteins (gently exfoliates), peppermint (stimulates circulation), lemon grass (normalizes oil production), ginger root (soothes skin), and citronella (deodorizes and balances oil production).

The smell is sweet, yet invigorating (it reminds me of the spa) and is the perfect AM pick-me-up I need before starting my day. It foams well, and tingles a little on the skin – thanks to the peppermint oil.

At $40 (you can get it at Amazon.com for $35) it’s pricey; when I first saw the cost of the Thai Tea Body Wash, my eyes were as big as saucers…don’t ya just love my puns? But a little goes a long way, so don’t use a cup when a teaspoon will do (there I go again) and use a loofah to extend the life of the 12 oz. bottle.

This Line Takes The Cupcake!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve undoubtedly heard about Oprah’s Favorite Things of 2007 list. Though Oprah made some fine choices, I have one recommendation for the media mogul.

buttercream This Line Takes The Cupcake!
If I had a list, I’d call it ‘The D-List’ (original, I know) – and everything on it would be from Jaqua’s Buttercream Frosting line of products. I’ve been using the Buttercream Frosting Exfoliating Body Polish, Shower Crème, and Hand Crème for a couple of weeks, and my enthusiasm has not waned. In fact, my fondness grows stronger every day. Not only do the Buttercream Frosting products pamper my parched skin, they smell like heaven – a sweet tooth’s version of heaven, anyway.

jaqua This Line Takes The Cupcake!
Like vanilla frosting with a hint of fresh strawberries, Jaqua’s Buttercream Frosting products smell so much like the real thing, I have to remind myself that they’re not edibile. I can only hope that Jaqua is developing hair care, shaving cream, toothpaste, antiperspirant, and contact lens solution…so that every square inch of me can smell saccharinely sweet.

The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly

The Good – Bliss Snow Wonder Body Butter
snowwonder1 The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly
Y’all already know that I have much love for Bliss Body Butter, a hand and body moisturizer that “instantly drenches dry skin to leave even the scaliest sort feeling seriously soft.” Just in time for the holidays, Bliss has introduced Snow Wonder Body Butter – a limited edition scent. Infused with the an avalanche of antioxidant arctic berry, vitamins A and E, Snow Wonder’s crisp scent recalls the “fresh fragrance of just-fallen flakes.” This winter, soften and smooth skin with a subtle shimmer…you’ll get a flurry of compliments, trust me!

The Bad – Bliss Clog-Dissolving Cleansing Milk
clogmilk The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly
On their website, Bliss promises that the Clog-Dissolving Cleansing Milk “does exactly what it promises. So whether your face suffers from the typical t-zone traffic jam or is oily all over, this marvel of a milky wash will keep it ‘in the clear’. A must-try.”

Don’t ya just hate empty promises? The gentle, low foaming texture of the cleanser was nice…and the citrusy scent was pleasant. But when it came to the clog-dissolving part, I saw nothing of the sort…the condition of my complexion is no better and no worse than before I began using this product. It does cleanse nicely, but for $28, I expect it to do more than merely remove my makeup.

The Bubbly – Bliss Snow Suit Gift Set
snowwonder2 The Good, The Bad, and The Bubbly
For less than $30, you can purchase the Snow Suit Gift Set – which includes travel sizes of the Bliss Snow Wonder Body Butter and the Snow Wonder Bath+Shower Gel (this foamy body wash evokes a clean, crisp, winter day – without the ‘brrrrr’ factor!). Makes the perfect gift for a friend, loved one, or yourself!
