Tone Body Wash Reviews

Cooler temperatures and fewer hours of sunlight can only mean one thing: your shower will become your new best friend. When it comes to skin care, of course.

Our skin gets drier in the winter months and being cooped up with less time outdoors usually means the winter blues. But you have a secret weapon–your shower and your body wash! Having a chance to review all 6 of Tone’s body washes reminded me how skin hydrating shower gels along with invigorating fragrances can not only nourish your skin, but your mind as well.  Read more

LUSH Dirty Springwash Shower Gel Review

“Out all night up to no good? Good on you. When it’s time to clean up your act and jolt yourself back to reality, have a wash with our tingly spearmint shower gel.

Spearmint and menthol crystals make your skin feel cool in a hot shower – you’ll feel fresher and ready to go in no time!

Review: Naturopathica Sicilian Bergamot Products



People throw around words like “natural” and “organic” a lot – how sure are you that your products are truly what they claim to be?

Recently, I started using Naturopathica skin care products. A brand based on holistic health, Naturopathica is a certified natural and organic skin care line, created with only the best natural ingredients.  Just as importantly, the ingredients aren’t just natural – they provide results. At the end of the day, isn’t that what everyone wants? An all-natural lotion is worthless if it doesn’t moisturize.

I tested out two products: the Sicilian Bergamot Body Lotion and Shower Gel. Both the lotion and shower gel are rather lightweight – deceivingly so. The gel worked into a light, refreshing lather and the airy lotion that followed sealed in my skin’s moisture.  The combination certainly did the trick after a few days of usage. I could probably reduce my lotioning  (yes, I just made that a verb) to only once a day now, but the scent keeps me coming back for more.  Read more
