Cleavage-Katy-Perry.jpg
We don’t know about you, but when we think of a celeb with gorgeous cleavage, it’s definitely Katy Perry. Though we can’t all have such curvaceous decollates, we can all have a healthy, glowing bosom, like the chanteuse! All you have to do is exfoliate…really. 

Just like we scrub our faces to get radiant skin, why wouldn’t the same hold true for our chests? With Valentine’s Day this coming Monday, and sensual cut-to-there dresses probably in most sexy ladies’ wardrobe lineup for the romantic day, all you need is a gentle sugar scrub to be well on your way to all-eyes-on-you cleavage. 

The skin on your decolletage is much thinner than on the rest of your body, so a sugar scrub is the way to go. They desolve easily in the shower, creating a built-in safety harness for over-scrubbing. Salt scrubs don’t dissipate as quickly, and can be way too abrasive for your upper chest area. A gentle scrubbing in the tub every day until the big day, followed by a rich body cream or lotion is the perfect formula for glowing skin.

We picked two of our favorite drugstore brands, and two of our favorite slightly pricier options (because sometimes, a girl just needs a splurge). Each gets the job done, and has its own unique makes-you-want-to-lick-it scent. 

1. Neutrogena Sugar Body Scrub Fresh Citrus, $9.24, amazon.com
2. Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub, $36, sephora.com
3. Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub, $6.99, ulta.com
4. Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish, $38, sephora.com


Crabtree-&-Evelyn-Citron-Honey-Coriander-Collection.jpgIf you ask us, the combination of citron, honey and coriander is a complete and total win. So the latest collection from Crabtree & Evelyn—aptly named the Citron, Honey & Coriander collection—just makes us swoon!

The collection is inspired by aromatic ripening citron in the sun-drenched Mediterranean, honey gathered during a warm day and peppery coriander nurtured in sunny herb gardens. Doesn’t that just sound divine? These lush, fragrant notes combine with skin-softening shea butter and evening primrose oil to create product after product that’s fresh, nourishing and oh so delightful.

If you’re like us, you’ll be amazed at all of the products this collection has to offer. From a skin smoothing body scrub and refreshing body bar to a skin quenching body lotion and even a lip butter, there really is something for everyone to be had here.

And at the very least, you can feel like you’ve taken a trip to a far distant land. What’s so bad about that?

The Crabtree & Evelyn Citron, Honey & Coriander collection retails for $5-$60 at crabtree-evelyn.com.

Bath-and-Body-Works-Aromatherapy-Pillow-Mist.jpgWe have to admit, we’ve never really thought sleep mists worked. Well, until we tried Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Lavender Chamomile Sleep Pillow Mist, that is.

The first time we were out within 15 minutes, we figured it must be a fluke. The second time, we assumed we were just really tired. But when this sleep mist worked a third time, we knew we were on to something big!

While lavender normally gives us a headache outside of a spa environment, we love that it’s tempered with chamomile here to keep it from being too overpowering. Both are soothing, calming and, amazingly, lull you to sleep within just 15 minutes. Really, this product is a true miracle worker!

We do recommend spritzing lightly, as a little goes a long way with this mist. No need to overpower your pillows!

Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Lavender Chamomile Sleep Pillow Mist retails for $10 at bathandbodyworks.com.
Boscia-Jujube-Rejuvenist-Amino-Body-Wash.jpgWhen your body is in need of the ultimate pampering experience, turn to Boscia Jujube Rejuvenist Amino Body Wash. This luxuriously rich, foaming, frothing body wash will leave not only your body but all of your senses feeling utterly and completely rejuvenated from head to toe.

This body wash is liberally packed with good-for-the-skin ingredients. Amino acids lend ultra-gentle cleansing while jujube fruit encourages healthy cell rejuvenation and makes the skin appear smoother and firmer. Exotic orange and mint revive the senses; jojoba leaf and green tea freshen the skin and protect against free radicals. And that’s not all! Willowherb and raspberry leaf soothe and calm the skin.

We especially love the easy-to-use pump application, which ensures that the perfect amount of body wash makes its way onto our pouf time and time again. And the fact that it lathers up extra well definitely adds points to an already more than satisfactory shower experience.

What this all boils down to? An amazingly fresh, zingy shower experience that’s perfect to rev you up at the beginning of each and every day. What more could you ask for?

Boscia Jujube Rejuvenist Amino Body Wash retails for $22 at bosciaskincare.com.
cuticle-stick.jpg
In the winter, our biggest problem area isn’t the dry skin on our body, or face. It’s our dry hands. And beyond that, our dry, brittle nails and cuticles. 

Luckily, a dear friend gifted us with a must-have basket of beauty goodies, and the All Season Naturals Cuticle Conditioning Stick was among them. If I hadn’t read the packaging, I would have immediately assumed it was lip balm because of the shape and color. The scent is deliciously fruity, but not too sweet. Oddly enough, it smells like a high-quality salon shampoo, which is one of our favorite scents! 

On first application, the soft stick melts quickly (almost as quickly as the amazing scent hits your nose). The shea butter, olive and Vitamin A and E and oils made our nails feel velvety smooth, hydrated and rich after rubbing a small amount of the product onto each cuticle. 

Plus (and probably one of my favorite features), if you retract the conditioning stick all the way down, the rounded tip is perfect for pushing back your cuticles! A tool and a beauty product in one! 

For just shy of $6, this is definitely a must-keep-in-purse for the long haul. Give it a try, and you’ll see what we mean. $5.99, sallybeauty.com
