Have you ever mixed and matched products? I do it all of the time and decided that a new feature here on A Girl’s Gotta Spa! will be a series called Unlikely Pair: Products that work well together but would never be sold together. Today I’m featuring Dove’s new Visible Care Softening Creme Body Wash and Li’tya’s Lemon Myrtle & Desert Salt Polish.
You’ve seen the commercials for Dove’s Visible Care line of body washes…the ones where the women have pictures of their skin on display in a gallery to exhibit the difference in their skin. One of the main ingredients in this line is glycerin, which is a humectant (draws moisture to your skin.) The Softening Creme Body Wash has a nice fresh, just out of the shower fragrance. The body wash is also thick and creamy in texture…the perfect substance to mix in Lit’ya Lemon Myrtle & Desert Salt Polish. This exfoliator doesn’t have a strong lemon scent, so the two products don’t clash when it comes to smell. Lit’ya is an Australian brand and the salt is from the Australian Desert (so you feel a bit exotic using it, but don’t talk with an accent because that would be weird.) The salt polish comes as is without any oils added to it, so it’s perfect to add to virtually any body oil, shower gel or body wash.
Due to the thickness of Dove’s body wash, it holds the salt well as you smooth it over your skin cupped in the palm of your hand. Rub in circular motions and then rinse. The smell is lovely and your skin will feel so silky smooth. I love it!
You can find Dove at virtually any drugstore or supermarket and Li’tya can be found at www.litya.com.
