Review: Caress Skinwear Collection, Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash

20090605-caress-evenly-gorgeous-exfoliating-body-washI love this quote from Caress, “Skin is the ultimate fashion statement.” This is so true because you can be wearing the hottest looking skirt, but if your legs are dry and flakey, that is going to be the center of attention not how amazing the skirt looks on you. And if you are like me, you worked your tail off to afford that skirt…there is no way you are going to let your stems ruin your moment in the spotlight. So what to do? It’s a no brainer–invest in good skin care.

If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you know that I am constantly battling my uneven skin tone on my face, as well as the keratosis pilaris on my arms and legs (thanks mom for passing those genes on!)

Lavanila’s The Healthy Deodorant

laviniladeodorantWhether or not you need to wear a deodorant year round, summer is the time to ensure you stay fresh and dry. Protect your most delicate summer dresses and maintain a sweet smelling scent all thru the warmest days of summer. But many deodorants contain pesky chemicals you want to avoid such as aluminum, sulfates or petro-chemicals. Say hello to Lavanila’s The Healthy Deodorant. We are already fans of Lavanila’s exotic scented fragrances, bath washes and of course beautifully packaged non-toxic candles all infused with essential oils, active botanicals, and antioxidants.

The Lavanila Healthy Deodorant is a clinical strength and 100% natural and does not contain any parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals or phalates. It uses beta-glucan technology to fight odor while soothing the skin with no gooey residue, and delivers long-lasting, luxurious results.
