Here are three of my favorite bath & body products. Hope that you find these product comparisons helpful and useful in keeping you beautiful through this hectic holiday season and after!
- Coconut Body Scrub – Whether in the middle of the summer or in the dead of winter I always enjoy a scrumptious coconut body scrub . My favorite of course is the Coconut Body Scrub ($20) from The Body Shop… a spa in a tub, yummy enough to wanna eat! Did I mention that I’m a coconut-aholic? My cheaper alternative is the Softsoap Body Butter Coconut Scrub ($5.49) with crushed coconut & jojoba butter. Although there isn’t much of a coconut scent but I love the rich texture and the moisturizing effect. Comes in a generous 15oz bottle.
- Exfoliating Body Lotion – My aunt swears by the Glytone Body Lotion ($34) to treat her ugly red bumps (Keratosis Pilaris) on her upper arms. Not only does it reduce the redness but the lotion is an excellent body quencher. Thanks to the glycolic acid which is very effective exfoliating agent. To my surprise, I’m also thrilled with the Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Triple Smoothing Lotion ($8.29) formulated with alpha hydroxy acid that gently exfoliates skin plus 24 hr moisturization – exfoliator & moisturizer all in one! This lotion has lessened the appearance of the bumps/irritation on my legs and left my skin hydrated all day long. Doesn’t have quite the medicinal quality as the Glytone but for the price, it doesn’t get any better!
- Scented Body Lotion – This Trish McEvoy #9 Blackberry & Vanilla Musk Body Lotion ($45) might be on the pricey side but once you experience its deliciously fragrant moisturization, your skin has never felt more luxurious & pretty. Goes on very light with a heavenly blackberry & vanilla scent along with all the goodness of shea butter and chamomile. The glitter in the lotion is perfect for a festive time or night out but some of you might find it a bit too much. For those who prefer the lighter vanilla scent with sweet berries, the Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Lotion ($10.50) from Bath & Body Works is a good option. Doesn’t have the long lasting power as the Trish lotion but still warm & sweet… and affordable!
