There are plenty of body washes out there and sometimes it can be hard to decide which product to choose. During these winter months we know it is import for us all to have a moisturizing wash that will not dry the skin out. Depending on your budget, it may be difficult to choose whether or not to spend or save when looking for a body wash. We are here to help!! We have scoured the market to find the best body cleansers in three price ranges: Mass market (under $10), Masstige ($10-$20) and Prestige ($20+).  

 

Olay Frsh Outlast with price bubble

When considering more of a mass product that is less expensive, but is still effective, Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash collection is our top pick. A great value at $5.49 you get a large bottle (23.6 fl oz) which will last for a good amount of time. There are 4 essential oil scents to choose from: Cooling White Strawberry & Mint, Soothing orchid & Black Currant, Crisp Pear & Fuji Apple, and Invigorating Champagne Mango & White Ginger. This body wash is formulated to work with skin’s natural pH. Olay has lowered the sulfates and contains 3x more mild cleansers than before. This will leave your skin feeling fresh and hydrated and is a great choice if you are seeking value in a mass body cleanser.

We all know the brand Dial; tried and trusted, whether it be lotion, hand soap, sanitizer, or body wash. Dial has unleashed the C, Vitamin C that is, with the new Vitamin Boost, Super C, Oil Infused body wash. This stuff smells great and leaves you feeling clean.

Dial Vitamin Boost Super C 4.22.14 Certified Fabulous

This body wash is enriched with a vitamin complex and a skin nourishing and hydrating grapefruit peel oil. It’s like a 2 in 1 wash and lotion. I like that I can wash and go without having to do the full routine of a lotion. Although I wouldn’t advise skipping the lotion every time, it’s really nice not having to do it all the time! I paired this body wash with my loofah to help clear away winter’s scaly skin business, and now my skin feels smooth and clean. I love the smell of citrus of any kind, so a citrusy body wash is the perfect pal for me. My skin felt soft and hydrated through out the day and it made my skin look a little brighter with each wash. I’d say it’s a wash and glow!

Next up, The “Wet” Brush, Earth Collection Bamboo Brush. It looks like a brush, feels like a brush, detangles not like a brush, but like hair magic. The brush is made out of bamboo with IntelliFlex bristles that massage the scalp (which was really nice), and it’s waterproof so it’s suitable for, that’s right, you guessed it, wet hair! You can also use this brush on dry hair. Yet another score for a 2 in 1 product.

Lisa Hoffman Beauty – Spa Bath & Body

Yes, Lisa Hoffman is the wife of the amazing actor Dustin Hoffman. Stay with me, here is my Dustin story: I met him several years ago at a school meeting, his movie Tootsie had just come… we were both in the back of the auditorium…

OMG I turned to my left & there he was wearing a baseball hat, I looked and smiled he put his finger to his lips to quiet my excitement… he smiled back; he was absolutely charming and very interested in the school his children would be attending.

When the seminar was finished he left quickly smiled and tipped his hat to me!!! Awesome I felt so special!!! And I am a big Fan… huge!!!

Rituals Home and Body Cosmetics: Tatsu - Blue Dragon Foaming Shower Gel Sensation

When one thinks about rituals what comes to mind? Ancient sages and warriors reading from mystical tomes around a towering fire? The meticulous hammering and honing of a metal sword that has been folded and shaped over 300 times by a master blacksmith? Or perhaps is a man waking up at dawn to workout, shower, shave and head to the office? All of these are routines in their own right, but its how they are carried out that really makes them rituals. And it is the doing of these modern tasks that the Rituals Home and Body Cosmetics company has inspired to make a zen act with its Tatsu line for men.

Rituals Home and Body Cosmetics Tatsu - Blue Dragon Foaming Shower Gel Sensation men certified fabulous grooming

The Tatsu product that I have had the honor of sampling is the foaming shower gel. On first glance is looks and feels like a shaving gel. It starts as a clear aromatic gel at first, which quickly works into a thick and luxurious lather. With most body washes I have used, the foam or lather is very light and tend to wash away too quickly to do any real cleaning. In contrast, the Rituals shower gel clings to the body and envelops the dirt and grime. Then upon rinsing, the body is left smooth and lightly cologned, thanks to the combination of supple oils and bold cedarwood fragrance.

The fragrance of the gel was an added bonus. One that I did not expect. The scent of the lather is fresh and eye opening while showering, but then it stays with you all day long. I don’t mean in an overpowering, “good god man what are you wearing!? SEX PANTHER!?” kind of way. Rather in a subtle amount as if it were a cologne you used. I can see using this shower gel as both a body wash and as a cologne replacement in my morning routine. Cutting down on time getting ready so I can tackle my day that much sooner.

As we head further into the winter months, our dry skin will need much more attention and care. If you struggle with knowing what products to use and when, Eight Skincare has you covered with the 4-Step Rejuvenation Kit. To bring your dry dull skin back to life, follow these four steps and you'll have smooth skin all winter long. 

Eight Skincare 4 step rejuvenation kit 11.26.13 Certified Fabulous

Dry Skin Body Brushing

This brush will gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing your skin to keep the protective oil barrier. I have rather sensitive skin but I was still able to use this brush lightly and effectively on my skin. Use this dry brush before you shower - do not get the brush wet!

Lotion, body wash, scrubs. These are pretty basic beauty products that we use all the time. Of course we have our favorites, but sometimes we like to switch it up a bit. I recently received a set of body products from H2O+. I have had good experiences with this brand so I was eager to try these products out. If you haven't hear of h20+ here's a little bit about the brand. H2o+ uses the benefits of marine life (such as the minerals & antioxidants found in marine life) in their skincare formulas. Their vision is "A world of healthy and vibrant oceans that enhance life and beauty" (ww.h2oplus.com).

H2O Spa Lotus Body Wash 11.24.13 Certified Fabuloush2o+ Sea Lotus Body Wash

This gel wash has a clean, invigorating scent that's a pleasure to use. The bold blue color adds to the deep sea refreshing sensation. It gel lathers well and leaves your skin feeling thoroughly cleansed, nourished & hydrated. The texture and scent is soothing and refreshing at the same time. It also doesn't not leave any soapy film on your skin; only the clean, refreshing scent lingers on your skin. The bottle is easy to use and keep in your shower. It's not your typical bottle shape so it adds a little visual variety amongst your other shower products. Key ingredients include Water Lotus & Bamboo extract - these aquatic plans have the ability to store moisture from the atmosphere, in turn providing long term hydration for your skin. Other key ingredients are Red Marine Algea and Vitamin E. 

H2O Spa Lotus Skin Smoother 11.24.13 Certified Fabuloush2o+ Sea Lotus Skin Smoother

Scrubs are good products to incorporate into your skincare routine at least once a week to renew your skin and promote new skin cell growth. The h2o+ Sea Lotus Skin Smoother has the same invigorating scent as the body wash & the body lotion. This body scrub also contains Water Lotus & bamboo for hydration and to help stimulate skin renewal. Sea salt gently exfoliates leaving a smooth and vibrant skin texture  Sweet almond oil adds lightweight hydration that is easily absorbed for deep moisture. I have found in the past that some oils tend to overpower the product and do not absorb well leaving me feeling not so clean, but the almond oil absorbed so well my skin felt nourished and hydrated! Also, I did not even smell Sweet Almond oil, I just got the refreshing sea fragrance!

I've talked in the past about the importance of taking care of your skin, especially when it becomes susceptible to outside factors like the weather and allergens. These sometimes harsh elements eventually break down the skin’s protective barrier leading to sensitive and dry skin.

Healthy skin has a hydrolipid film covering the surface of the skin called the acid mantle. The acid mantle is slightly acidic (PH 5.5). It’s essential to maintain this PH on the skin’s surface and Sebamed has been making soap-free products since the 1960’s which match this acid mantle and maintain the PH level while healing and protecting even the most sensitive skin (like mine).

Sebamed Hand and Nail BalmHere are a couple to try this fall season:

Sebamed hand & nail balm for sensitive skin  

  • Quickly absorbs
  • Non-greasy
  • Deep moisturizing
  • Enriched with vitamin B5

I used this daily towards the end of the summer and saw a noticeable difference in my nails. Rubbing directly in the nail and cuticles, it really strengthened and softened them.

Fall is quickly approaching...at least it is here in New England...so the transition from protecting our skin from the sun is now switching gears to weigh more heavily on protecting our skin from the colder elements. 

BioExpérience is a Canadian company that developed a skincare collection created from the richness and diversity of Canada’s natural resources, formulating with locally sourced active ingredients that not only combine performance and benefits but pleasure for the senses. Inspired by the Autumn's Splendor, its perfumes, colors and most of all, the abundance of the Quebec apple orchards. Made from apple extracts and authentic DOMAINE LAFRANCE'S authentic Iced Apple Cider, the apple is the star in those products that will certainly wrap your relaxing moments into a comforting aura.

Bioexperience Body Wash Iced Apple Elixir 9.18.13 Certified FabulousI experienced the BioExpérience: Iced Apple Elixir Body Wash and the BioExpérience: Iced Apple Elixir Hydrating Body Lotion which both had that amazing apple scent in them! It smells like a real, crispy apple that is such a comforting feeling because I think of apple picking in the fall in warm sweaters and drinking apple cider by a fire :) 

The body wash foamed up perfectly when used with my loofah and left my skin clean, soft and scented. As soon as I got out of the shower I applied the body lotion. The lotion had the same dreamy aroma and absorbed into my skin leaving it immediately moisturized and silky. It left my skin with a healthy looking glow too, which was a nice surprise.

Turns out apples are not only healthy for you internally but also topically! The apple ingredient in these products protects and balances your skin's PH creating suppleness, formulated with Apple Cider Vinegar that helps to reduce the look of age spots while also promoting collagen for firmer skin! Pretty impressive, right?

Softsoap Pacific Sunset 7.6.13 Certified FabulousWhat do you look for in a body wash? Is is the hydration qualities, maybe exfoliation qualities, or is it the scent? I change my body wash depending on what I need that season, and what works best for my skintype - it always needs to have some type of moisturizing quality. In the summer, I like my body wash to have a nice, refreshing scent, that will make me feel clean and revived in the summer heat!

Softsoap: Pacific Sunset is a great body wash option this summer! The blends of citrus are awakening, refreshing and take you to that tropical paradise! After a day at the beach, you can wash away the sand but still maintain that beach state of mind. This is also a great body wash to mentally escape to the beach during those cold winter months, or during a rainy day that should be sunny :) The body wash is hydrating and does not dry out my skin, which is very important for me! This body wash is Limited Edition, submitted for review by Colgate-Palmolive, so if you love a refreshing, and relaxing citrus scent, go get it before it's gone!

Stay classy,

Linnea

After winning the opportunity to try out PRIMAVERA’s Relaxing Lavender Vanilla Body Wash, I was both excited and afraid to use it.  Perhaps it was some sort of inner struggle with myself against smelling floral and sweet.  Perhaps it was the idea of my Axe Body Wash being jealous...  At any rate, I did in fact use this body wash and enjoyed it enough to continue using it.

Two key points about this product are 100% fact.  The first of which is the soothing properties of the lavender vanilla scent.  At first opening the bottle I was taken aback by how strong the fragrance was.  (In fact I was scared I was going to smell like a summer garden for the next month or two ;-p)  After using the product, I found that this intensity of aroma was perfect for creating a warm and relaxing ambiance during my shower.  It is aroma therapy at its finest.  I will also note that the scent is light enough after showering that it doesn't knock people over with a lavender cloud afterwards, which is a plus from a male perspective.

04202013 Primavera Relaxing Body Wash Certified fabulous

The second key feature I enjoy about this product is the smoothness of my skin after showering.  Some of the cheaper moisturizing products I have tried in the past have made my skin feel oily to the touch; this is not the case with the PRIMAVERA body wash. The key oils used in this body wash left me with a feeling of having locked moisture into my skin, NOT a feeling of being greasy.  Two thumbs up for the pampering nature of the oils in this product! :-)

I left the shower with a refreshed feeling and a sense that I had done something beneficial to my body.  This, I think is the way that one should feel after a nice hot shower at the end of a stressful day.  I want to thank Certified F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. for the free product and I hope to win some more items to try out in the future!

Philosophy Beauty Products can be great gifts for the holidays!  This is a beautifully presented brand and they make the perfect gifts. 

There is always a concern that bath and body products can seem impersonal... Unless of course the person you are buying for absolutely loves bath and body products :)

The coolest thing about Philosophy are the messages.  Every bottle has something written on it. They are super cute messages, poems, or fun recipes. And there are a ton of gift sets, So when you are gift shopping you shop by the message you want to send, or the beautiful scents that they choose... or by the holiday they have designed the product for. 

 

I was just given Snow Angel, in The Philosophy Winter Wonderland gift set.  It is awesome.  it smells so good... And by the way, they have a really nice quality to their products, so they feel great too. This set comes with a shower gel and body lotion.  The lotion is nice and rich, so it is doing a pretty good job with my dry winter skin.

Aromatherapy skin care

Greetings Grayce here!

I love taking a nice hot bath I find it so relaxing. Unfortunately with my hectic schedule I find the majority of time I am in the shower and looking for that quick fix. I have dry skin and I am always searching for products that are gentle and moisturizing.
