Weleda-Sea-Buckthorn-Hand-Cream.jpgOnce winter even starts showing its ugly face, our hands start getting rough and chapped. Even when it’s 60 degrees outside, you’ll find us wearing gloves and slathering hand cream on multiple times a day. But with the introduction of Weleda Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream into our regimen, our hands have completely changed course.

For starters, we absolutely love the scent. It’s subtly zesty and citrusy, and at the same time isn’t too overpowering so we can still wear perfume. This is due to the combination of orange, mandarin and grapefruit essential oils.

The fact that the cream is formulated with sun-soaked Biodynamic sea buckthorn oil just makes it so rich and lush. Essential fatty acids moisturize, while pro-vitamin A and Vitamin E soften and strengthen the skin. With the addition of organic sesame seed oil, your hands will be super hydrated in no time at all.

And here’s the best part. Throughout the holiday season, you can get the cream and a free pair of moisturizing gloves! Just slick on the cream, then put on the gloves, and sit in your house for an hour or two (perfect while watching a movie). When you remove them, you’ll be amazed at how soft and smooth your skin has become!

Shaving-Products-Image.jpgWhile shaving is a necessary evil, it’s not one we actually enjoy. It’s time-consuming, it happens way too often, and it just makes our showers a lot less fun. But with these four shaving products, the evil is lessened quite considerably!

L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil
A soft, smooth shave in mere seconds—and with the fantastic scent of almond oil to boot? This shower oil is perfect for slicking up your legs and making sure you remove each and every unwanted hair from the follicle.
$8 at

The Art of Shaving Rose Absolute Shaving Cream
The heady scent of roses that accompanies this shaving cream—made by the premier shaving company, if we may be so bold—certainly makes us want to lather up.
$26 at

Gillette Venus Divine Razor
Of course no shaving experience would be complete without the perfect razor! This one has a three-blade cartridge and a moisture strip so you could even shave with just water in a pinch.
$9.99 at

Schick Skintimate Shave Gel
If it weren’t for this shave gel, we might have switched to men’s shaving cream long ago. All of the scents are fantastic, but our very favorite is Raspberry Rain.

CND-Scentsations-Vanilla-Collection.jpgWhat’s better than one amazing lotion? Three, of course! The CND Scentsations Vanilla Collection, which is among CND’s holiday offerings, is most definitely a trio worth trying.

Each of the three hand lotions in this trio smells fantastic and leaves skin feeling soft and super moisturized. Take your pick of Vanilla Velvet, Vanilla Cashmere or Vanilla Suede, all of which will smooth out even the roughest and most chapped of skin.

And here’s the best part—each lotion leaves just a touch of shimmer on the skin, which is just so perfect for the holidays!

Dr.-Bronner's-Citrus-Orange-Pure-Castille-Soap.jpgWe’d been hearing about the magic for years. Literally, years. But, until recently, we hadn’t taken the amazingness of Dr. Bronner’s Citrus Orange Liquid Soap for a test ride.

Well, color us impressed. This soap not only smells fantastic but works up into a pretty incredible lather with less than a dime-sized amount poured out of the bottle! The scent is definitely citrusy, but not at all fake or cloying—it’s fresh and clean with just a touch of zestiness.

We were definitely a little skeptical of how well this soap would lather up since it starts as a very watery liquid. But it really does turn into a delightful mass of suds in just seconds when poured onto a pouf, a washcloth or even just your hands.

Plus, this soap is formulated with organic orange, lemon and lime to stimulate and invigorate the skin. All the oils are certified organic, and the packaging is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. Pretty cool, right?

shower-gels-under-25.jpgI’m a self-professed shower gel junky, my linen closet has been known to overflow with them as I covet every scent I can get my hands on in every formula imaginable. But I will admit that while I’m a sucker for their frothy goodness, I have a select few that are near and dear to my heart!

First up is Philosophy Sugar Sprinkles Funnel Cake Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath. The smell of this shower gel is simply heaven-sent yummy, but it’s the formula that I love the most. Many of Philosophy’s bath products pack a tri-power punch, and while I don’t use them as shampoo often, it’s saved me a time or two (think post workout lifesaver).

Next is a drugstore wonder that is actually my current go to. Caress Silkening Body Wash Tahitian Renewal won’t set you back more than $5 and smells divine. Best of all it has these exfoliating beads in it that leave my skin feeling exfoliated and fresh.

I’ve previously discussed my desire to smell like a baked good at all times — Cake Beauty Desserted Island Supremely Rich Bath & Shower Froth aims to keep me on this mission. It smells like a coconuty-vanilla concoction and is extra thick and luxurious. Between the smell and the feel of my skin I find myself intoxicated.

Many of us suffer from acne on our bodies, and yet very few companies do anything to address this problem. I’m psyched to say that Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Body Wash Pink Grapefruit  is gentle enough to use even on sensitive skin. It is great even if you’re not experiencing a breakout and the pink grapefruit scent is light and refreshing.
$5.79 at

Last, but certainly not least, is Soap & Glory Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel. This great shower gel also has a citrusy scent that almost smells sparkling, but it’s the super cleaning power that I love. It will help your skin get, and stay clean, something every girl wants in a shower gel.
