Every Thursday Rachael Robbins brings you the best of her DD’s
Spring has friggin finally sprung!!! It’s actually warm here in NJ. And my bones are not chilled to the, well, bone any more! Along with the departure of old man winter’s chilly temps, my skin has ceased to look like the Geiko Gecko too. I can put away the “Big Guns” of body moisturizer and switch to the lighter summery ones.
This winter my saving grace was Pooka Body Butter. This stuff is so packed with moisture that a tiny dab of it made my hands look like I just walked out of the manicurist. But it’s so heavy that I didn’t even finish the whole 4oz tin over the course of the entire winter. And trust me, when I took this stuff out and applied it, any chick or guy in my vicinity wanted to use some as well! Happily, with the arrival of warm weather Pooka Body Butter must be retired.
Fortunately, the luck of the Irish smiled down upon me and in my last package from Meg I received Essence Of Beauty’s Citrus Coconut Hand Cream. This stuff is THE PERFECT summer hand cream. It leaves my hands moisturized, but I feel like I can touch things right after applying it! It makes my hands feel velvety soft without an ounce of greasiness! And the smell! Hello Tropical Island!! According to the company, coconut and citrus are “uplifting” scents, so it actually helps to relieve tension as well as dryness. It has Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, and Antioxidant Vitamin C & E.
I was already a fan of Essence of Beauty’s shower gel in Grapefruit, not I can add another one of their products to my “yes” list. Let me know if there are any other products from their line that I should check out!
Essence of Beauty have any of you other ladies running to CVS?
