EO Hand Soap – French Lavender


One of the more delicious lavender soaps I’ve smelled.

Trader Joe’s Coconut Body Butter

Thick, rich, creamy, and smells divine (not sickeningly sweet.) Absorbs well. No parabens. Another label could charge four times the price for this regal concoction. With Shea Butter, Coconut oil, and Vitamin E. I’m praying they don’t discontinue it, as they have been known to do with other greats.

Venus Embrace Razor System

If you shave like it’s a race for your life, this razor is for you. This is the best deal I have found on the web.

L’Occitane Lavender Organic Relaxing Roll-On

The person who gave me this organic lavender roll from L’Occitane right before a happy hour that lasted for 7 hours has since become a friend for life. Since you never know where life (or a fabulous evening out with your favorite people) will take you, having a little piece of relaxation in your pocket at all times is highly underrated. The smell instantly makes me think of my friend, and this makes it one of my favorite products, and lavender one of my favorite scents. Lesson learned? Well, first, YOLO! And of course, pay it forward gals!! xo

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Rollerball Fragrance

I dare you not to emerge from a Monday- (or Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday) too-many-bellinis-good-time-but-I-have-to-make-it-through-the-work-day coma with this gorgeous grapefruit-apple blossom roller from our man who does it all, MJ. Since the roller is a light concentration of fragrance, it won’t overpower your sure-to-be delicate senses, or annoy those around you. Reapply often, girlies, and liberally, for an instant mood lifter.

Herbacin Kamille Hand Cream + Glycerin

Everyone who has ever borrowed this hand cream from me asks where to get this. It’s my day hand cream. At night (and when necessary), I use super big guns. But during the day, this is excellent and has an awesome finish that does not leave my hands tacky and capable of lifting newsprint. Light, pleasant smell.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 100+

I use the ultra sheer lotion (Neutrogena) on my face, and this spray on my body. I focus extra on my chest and arms. I keep an extra bottle in my car. Even if I wear a hat, I still use this on my chest area.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 70

Goes on great under makeup, and doesn’t make me break out. Good price point for so much protection. A must.

Medicine Mama’s Sweet Bee Magic

I feel the same way about Medicine Mama’s as I do about Egyptian Magic. (See my Egyptian Magic review here). Mama’s is about $10 cheaper and has a verrrry minor smell to it (not bad, just there.) It’s also organic.

Egyptian Magic

This amazing cream can be slathered anywhere and everywhere, and has only six all-natural ingredients: Honey, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Royal Jelly, Bee Pollen and Bee Propolis. No additives, preservatives, fragrances, chemicals or parabens. Don’t just goop it on. Rub it between your hands for a sec first, then shmear. Heals scars, stretch marks, and great for moisturizing practically every inch of your body.
