January 2012 Archives
This body wash is formulated with essential oils of orchid, Madagascan ylang ylang, Egyptian neroli and Chinese cinnamon. What does this mean? It’s rich, heady and undeniably sensuous. We do think it smells a bit on the manly side, but there are certain days when this just doesn’t feel like a problem. In any case, this body wash is homey and cozy and completely wraps you in luxury.
And as a bonus, this body wash doubles as a bubble bath! How much more luxurious can life get?
Molton Brown Sensual Hanaleni Moisture Bath & Shower retails for $30 at moltonbrown.com.
We’re pretty particular about the balms we slick on our pouts, but this one definitely counts among our favorites. While it is a bit on the waxy side, which admittedly we could do without, it keeps our lips feeling nourished and moisturized all day long with minimal reapplication.
Reparative oils and waxes combine with real sugar in the formula, in addition to black currant oil, grapeseed, and Vitamins A, C and E. And as if that’s not enough, it’s even formulated with SPF 15 to protect against damaging UV rays! Really, what more could you ask for?
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 retails for $22.50 at beauty.com.
