Weleda Pomegranate Creamy Body Wash

After reading many stellar reviews about this company and my fondness of pomegranate, I could not wait to try this body wash.  I was not disappointed with this body wash. It provided adequate moisturizing lather and a soft lingering scent of pomegranate that lasted well into the day.  The body wash was packed with essential oils of vanilla, blood orange and neroli. I like how body wash is free of synthetic detergent and the organic, and was fair trade pomegranate oil.

Glytone – Retexturize Exfoliating Body Wash

I love this exfoliating body wash and it is a great alternative to sugar body scrubs.  It left my skin soft and smooth thanks to the exfoliating effects of glycolic acid. This product has strong medical scent [sadly] and thick consistency, which gives a nice fluffy lather. The body wash is gentle for everyday use and a lot easier to use than traditional body scrubs. I would recommend applying the lotion after showering to lock in the hydration. Also, do not use any other scrubs, while using this product as it might cause skin irritation.

When I first saw this product, I thought it was made by the creators of Cirque du Soleil, turns out it is not.  After cutting my long hair because there wasn’t much I could do with it; I realized there isn’t much to do with short hair either, if you are lazy.  I decided try this serum out after reading some really good reviews about this product. After washing my hair, I smooth in some of the serum into my hair.  I love the piece-y texture and volume it gave my hair. I didn’t notice any added shine to my hair and it made my hair a bit sticky. While I would not use this product every day, I would use it once in a while and probably wash my hair the next day. I didn’t use any heat styling equipment, as recommended. I will probably try that the next time.

Boscia Oil Free Daily Hydration SPF 15

After putting off using sunscreen all of winter, I thought I might get into the habit before the summer started. I actually found this SPF while waiting on line at Sephora. I heard many good things about the Boscia brand and since I need a sunscreen, I thought I might as well kill two birds with one stone. The lotion scent was not very pleasant; it reminded me of freshly cut grass.  I do love the scent of flowers, nature and blah blah but just not on my face. The non-greasy lotion went on smoothly and had matte finish.  You might want to follow with a moisturizer as my skin felt dry afterwards. This natural product is paraben, phthalate, preservative sulfate, synthetic fragrance and dye free.

My hands are constantly dry no matter how many inches of lotion I pile on. I read online that this lotion gives the skin the appearance of a post peel glow. I couldn’t wait to try it.  The thick lotion goes on smoothly and my skin does look dewy after application, but it did have a bit of a greasy feel.  My hands did remain soft and smooth throughout the day. The glycolic acid removes dead skin and kinetin growth factor speeds up cell renewal. The glycerin locks in the moisture and green tea and rice phytic has proven anti-aging effects.  An added bonus for anyone who is hypoallergenic, the lotion is fragrance, dye, phthalate, paraben and preservative free.  The lotion is quite pricy, $45 for a 6.3 oz bottle, so try it out first to see if you like it.
