Nivea In Shower lotion – Lush Ro’s body conditioner
I absolutely hate getting out of my warm shower and putting cold lotion on my body. I usually just don’t moisturize to avoid that awful feeling! I have truly truly truly found the winning product for the lazy me and for the chronically cold me! The inexpensive version is the Nivea in shower lotion. I usually put conditioner in my hair. Do a quick scrub on the back of my arms and my whole legs with the Golden Goddess scrub and then lather up in the in shower body lotion. I stand out of the water and “tidy up” the products I used in the shower just to let the hair conditioner and body lotion soak in for a minute and then rinse pat dry get dressed and go! No cold lotion bottles and no cranky cold me in the winter mornings!
I heard about Lush through the magical world of Youtube beauty guru Zoella. My first experience in there is a whole story in itself, but I looked into the body conditioner because I love Nivea so much. I wanted to look into a more pamper me product that does the same thing, but better. It is a splurge for these Lush products, but they are so worth it! The rose scent is light and literally smells like a bouquet of roses. The conditioning, nourishing feel that you get with this Lush product is so refreshing. I love using it when my skin feels really dry or I need a spa night. Side note: if you love soaking in a bath, they have phenomenal bath bombs/ bubble bars. I do not have a bath tub, so I am extremely upset I do not get to use these!!
Spruce and Fresh Golden Goddess Body Scrub
I talked about this product in the gifts for your bridesmaid blog here. I still stand by this product. The smell is so clean and fresh. I received this scrub as a gift in October and still have half the container left. I do a scrub about twice a week and a little of this stuff goes a long way!
Rodan and Fields Soothe Cream Wash
I tried this product because a friend is now a rep for the company. It is by the makers of Proactiv which I never tried as a teen, so this is the first “strong” product I have used for facial skincare. It is definitely different. I love the cream wash itself. I may experiment with more cream washes, but this is such a quick real clean of your skin. I put it on my face dry and use it to take my makeup off at night. Massage it around then take a hot/warm washcloth and wipe all the dirt and grime away! Easy. Quick. and I don’t get water or suds everywhere. My skin has definitely improved since using this. I have had it a little ove a month and half right now!
que bella – Replenishing dead sea mud mask
I use this once or twice a week in my “downtime.” I do a mini spa and pamper night to make myself feel better and stumbled across this at Target when I was having a terrible time with my skin and needed a really deep tingle cleansing mask. Let’s just say I asked Santa for more. They are not expensive. The bottle says 5 masks for the price of 3. I have had way more than 5 masks with this tube!
Bare Minerals Pure Nourishing Cream
I have DRY skin. I spoke to the rep at Ulta, because I needed something heavy without being so heavy (if that makes sense) I love this. I love saving a buck on everyday things, but I have found that spending those extra few bucks really makes the difference in how I feel and how my skin looks! It is not even the most expensive nourishing cream out there.
Rodan and Fields Microderm abarasion lip
I ordered this product from my friend as well. It is going to last me a very long time because I have also found an awesome lip balm, but this has been perfect for my lips when I started to feel them get dry and tight. We haven’t had extreme cold yet this winter in Alabama, but I spent the weekend in Michigan over Thanksgiving, and it was SO COLD! I (silly me) forgot my overnight beauty bag and didn’t have any lip balm. My lips were so mad when I got home. I popped on some balm, did a rub with the microderm abrasion lip, wiped it off (gently) and popped on the balm again. INSTANTLY FELT SO MUCH BETTER! This will be my lip lifesaver when winter finally decides to happen here in Alabama.
Beauty by Earth Peppermint Lip Balm
I found this by accident. Well. . . my fiancé did. He was annoyed I wouldn’t tell him something I wanted for Christmas and ordered random things for me from Amazon. I ended up with this. Probably won’t use any other brand either. I am very particular on my lip products and this is so refreshing and smells nice. Doesn’t taste terrible or leave odd films over my lips. It came in a pack of 5, so I can place them in multiple places so I never “forget” my lip balm again! Yay!
HANDS AND FEET
Lush Hand Cream “Charity Pot” Hand and Body
I got this as a sample. I think the closest Lush to Alabama is Atlanta, but I found one in Ann Arbor Michigan. I was so excited. They are all handmade products and your body definitely appreciates the products with nothing bad in them. I got this as a sample, so I only have a tiny bit of it and I use it so sparingly because I don’t want it to go away! I have it stashed on my night stand and pop it on my feet and hands as I am laying down to sleep. That extra moisture on the most used parts of my body at bedtime when your body is already trying to replenish is such a difference! It has such a faint, light scent it makes it perfect for the night time and not engaging your senses as you’re trying to doze off into wedding planning wonderland!
