Staying hydrated is key in the summer and I’m not just talking about drinking water. Don’t forget to take care of your skin. I had the chance to try some amazing hydrating products from Seabuck Wonders. SeabuckWonders products are made of Seabuckthorn oil, if you are not familiar with sea buckthorn it is a berry with a history dating back to the time of Genghis Khan and Mythical Greece…so a long time ago. Known historically for it's health and beauty boosting properties, sea buckthorn was commonly fed to horses to increase their health and vigor and was noted for giving them shiny fur. Thus, Hippophae Rhamnoides, the botanical name for sea buckthorn, literally stands for "tree that makes horses shine". It is known for its health and beauty boosting properties.  SeabuckWonders is one of those companies that understands that people want products that are healthy and safe to use. All of SeabuckWonders products are USDA certified Organic . Vegan; Non – gmo, leaping bunny cruelty free.

SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion is an intense moisturizer that leaves skin feeling silky, smooth and nourished. This lotion has a high concentration of sea buckthorn oil which allows for superior moisture retention while protecting the skin from signs of aging. This lotion is filled with powerful antioxidants and contains more than 190 bioactive nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Used daily you can see your skin will feel much healthier and more youthful .

Another great product of theirs is the Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream. This cream has a high concentrated infusion of Omega 3,6,9 and 7 which offers unparalleled hydration and protection for radiant skin. This is a very hydrating formula yet it is lightweight and will absorb quickly. It’s really amazing how nice it feels. The facial cream will help minimize fine lines, while protecting your skin.

I love the scents of the summer air. It smells of life, vibrancy and sweet nature...there's nothing else like it! When it comes to perfumes and scents to wear in the summer I like to keep them light and fresh to maintain the tone and feel of summer. I feel in love with L'Air De Nina Ricci Perfume Gift Set with Eau De Parfum Spray and Body Lotion! The scent complimented the summer air and added a tone of sweetness while still be light and fresh. L Air Nini Ricci Paris Set

Make your work day go a little more smoothly with the addition of L'air de Nina Ricci, a perfume for women. Introduced in 2011 by Nina Ricci, this perfume draws inspiration from the classic fragrance L'Air du Temps. With a subtle mixture of floral notes and softer feminine notes, this perfume lets you feel sweet and innocent even in the middle of a hard day, and the fragrance will even help you get through a day of shopping or running errands. gift

As a self-proclaimed perfume connoisseur I typically go for more masculine scents, but I was surprised by this perfume and how much I enjoyed wearing it! It wasn't overpowering with florals, which I don't care for. Instead it has a light floral scent with a powdery fresh tone to it, which makes for a flattering combination! I haven't come across a perfume that smells like this before so I have been reaching for this a lot more to spray on each day :) This gift set conveniently comes with a matching lotion which is equally as nice! I like putting the lotion on right after the shower and following up with the perfume for the ultimate fragrant pampering. I highly recommend trying this out for yourself and you can easily do so at www.fragrancenet.com

Another simple summer beauty love I just experienced is the www.BoxyCharm.com service!

Beauty & Skin Expert Gregorie Guillaume Breaks Down the Difference between Body Potions & Lotions and Shares her Selects for the Season

New season. New body care regimen. Do yourself and your body a favor this season and add body oils to the mix to get even softer skin from SKINN Cosmetics, Whish, Caldrea and Viktor&Rolf. As creatures of habit, stepping out of the shower and reaching for that tried and true body lotion is what we know.

Body Oils vs. Body Lotions

Before you make the decision to switch or even add a body oil to your regimen, let's first understand what the difference is between the two product types. Body oils moisturize the top layer of the skin, keeping moisture trapped in while not penetrating the skin. Body lotions are made with skin-softening ingredients like aloe vera, shea butter and Vitamins D & E to penetrate and hydrate the skin.
Now you've got the facts - whatcha gonna do? I'm a lotion and oil kind of girl myself.

With the sun shining and flower’s blooming, it’s time to take a moment and indulge in life’s little luxuries with bodycology

bodycology: Cherish the Moment is a blushing fragrance dominated by cherry blossom blooms, creating a blissful and radiant scent that enthralls the senses. With both floral and musk undertones, Cherish the Moment is an exotically pleasing fragrance.
bodycology cherish the moment body lotion fragrance mist certified fabulous review

  • Top notes of Sweet Apple Blossom, Peach and Cherry Blossom lead to mild notes of Rose Petal, Muguet and Night Blooming Jasmine.
  • Dry notes of Vanilla Bean, Creamy Sandalwood and Patchouli Musk round out this fragrance that’s powdery and fresh like the first day of spring.

 

I lathered on the moisturizing body lotion which contains Hydrating Aloe Vera, Moisturizing Shea Butter and Nourishing Vitamins E & C smooth skin for softening that feels like blissful indulgence.

For a splash of fragrance and energy, spritz the fragrance mist lightly on wrists, neck and shoulders. For all-over freshness, spray into the air and let the fine mist gently surround you. Conditioning and hydrating Honey and Aloe Vera provide a burst of refreshment.

Burt’s Bees is the coolest company ever. Started by single mom, and Maine native Roxanne Quimby in 1984, this company has grown immensely over the past 30 years. Using Burt Shavit’s leftover beeswax, the two worked together to grow one of the most environmentally friendly companies ever. In 2012, as an interest in natural products continues to grow, the company Gud was born out of Burt’s Bees continuing desire to bring naturally wonderful products to consumers in a mass market retain setting.

With 97% natural ingredients and accessible price points, güd: Mango Moonbreeze Natural Body Lotion is a wonderful product for those of us seeking a natural product, at an affordable price. Mango Moonbreeze Natural Body Lotion contains natural AND organic ingredients.Made with natural shea butter, sunflower seed oil, and organic hyssopus,  officinalis extract, black walnut leaf extract, melissa officinalis leaf extract, rosa canina fruit extract, raspberry leaf extract, this product has a really nice ingredient list. This lotion is formulated without parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals and sodium lauryl sulfate, and is never tested on animals, making this a really great drug-store find. Retailing at $7.00, this is one amazing lotion.

güd: Mango Moonbreeze Natural Body Lotion comes in a large 8oz tube. This thick white cream is so moisturizing, it immediately absorbed into my dry, parched skin leaving my body soft and smooth. The fragrance is sweet and fresh, and not too strong. I would love to layer the body wash under the scent of this lotion, it is so pleasant. I have always used and loved Burt’s Bees, and now I am thrilled that I can get a beautifully fragranced, moisturizing lotion at a great price!!

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!

Lotions will become a very crucial aspect of our skincare routine as the weather continues to turn cooler and harsher. If you go to your local CVS, Target, grocery store etc., and stand in the lotion aisle, a whole wall of lotion options will be staring at you. While it's great to have a large selection to choose from, it's important to know what you're looking for so that you walk out of the store with the type of product you want. I usually stand there reading the back of each product that looks like a good option for me...this can take a while. So my other option is to do a little research before and know what brand I want to get. You don't want to buy something only to go home, really examine it, and discover it's not exactly what you wanted. So if you are in the market for an organic body lotion, I hope this review will help you with your selection process. 

Avalon Organics has a range of body lotions to choose from to suit your preferences. In order to avoid harsh chemicals from being absorbed into the body through the skin, Avalon Organics body care products do not contain parabens, other harsh preservatives, mineral oil, sulfates, propylene glycol, artificial colors or synthetic fragrances. These products do contain 70% organic content. What's also great is that they have a wide selection of fragrances each containing soothing ingredients to relieve and nourish dry skin.

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?

Not too many people know this about me, but I used to be a farmer. The hard-core, fifth generation farmers whom I worked for would consider me more of a “hobby” farmer because the novelty of it wore off after a few years, but they would never deny my dedication to the hard work I put into helping them manage their large organic/biodynamic dairy farm. Biodynamic farming is a fascinating way to farm, and is based upon many interesting principles including the fermentation of the natural fertilizers and the use of natural ingredients such as milk and honey for pest control. 

This month I received Weleda’s Sea Buckthorn Replenishing Body Lotion for review. Upon doing my initial research into Weleda’s company and the ingredients they use, I was surprised to discover that this company uses over 300 biodynamic ingredients in their skincare line. The Body Lotion I tested not only includes biodynamic ingredients, but also contains Sea Buckthorn Oil, which is also amazing. 

A little background on Biodynamics and the wonderful company known as Weleda. It all goes back to 1921 and something called anthroposophy. This movement, stemming from the teachings of philosopher Dr. Rudolf Steiner, encourages the individual to see his or her body, mind and spirit as intrinsically linked to our world; all part of one holistic system. Steiner, along with Dr. Ita Wegman, formed a team of scientists and doctors to figure out just how they might use this philosophy to take care of their patients’ needs. It was understood that the human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself, but sometimes it needs a little help. So a personal approach was developed using natural ingredients that can holistically work with and support the body’s healing tendencies. They started by creating one of the world’s first Biodynamic® gardens to grow what they needed.  Patients were healed, wellness and balance were restored to them, and never once was a synthetic chemical or lab-made preservative used in the process. These amazing scientists were the founders of the company known as Weleda. The name Weleda was chosen after the the Celtic goddess of wisdom and healing, which couldn’t be more appropriate. 

Weleda Replenishing Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion 8.5.13

These Biodynamic principles go into the farming techniques of many of the ingredients used in Weleda’s product lines. Weleda also uses many wonderful natural ingredients in their formulations. Seabuckthorn is the active in their replenishing Body Lotion, and its story is also an amazing one. The berries of Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae Rhamnoides) are so rich in vitamins and nutrients that it has been speculated that the plant must have been cultivated by some ancient plant-breeder. Legend tells how the ancient Greeks used Sea Buckthorn leaf in a diet for race horses, hence it's botanical name "Hippophae" - shiny horse. According to another legend, Sea Buckthorn leaves were the preferable food of flying horse - Pegasus and allegedly was helpful to get Pagasus airborn.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and sometimes finding the perfect gift can be a bit tricky. We want to make our mothers feel special and valued for all they do, and with most moms running crazy schedules, they often do not pamper themselves like they deserve. So this week I have a few products that will hopefully give you some good ideas on what to get your awesome Mamma this Mother's Day!

Heart Calgon is a recent line of bold fragrances available in an exfoliating body wash, body mist, 05072013 Calgon Fresh Start Body Lotion Certified Fabulousshimmering mist, and body lotion. For this week I tried the Fresh Start Body Lotion, and the Hot Date Body Mist. For a chic and clean scent this Fresh Start body lotion hits the mark. Crisp apple and lily lightly fragrance the skin while ingredients such as Vitamin E, Aloe, and Shea Butter hydrate and replenish dry skin. This lotion is fast absorbing, but not too thin. You can smell great and moisturize in one step! For a more sweet and tempting fragrance, try the Hot Date body mist. Warm vanilla and pear create a light and inviting, 05072013 Calgon Hot Date Body Mist Certified Fabulousbut not overpowering scent. Since it’s a body mist, and light to begin with, you can really control the strength of the scent to what you like. These Heart Calgon products would also make great Mother’s Day gifts – great fragrances with pampering products! Heart Calgon products can be found in select Walgreens

Other scented body lotion options:

TerraNova Gardenia Body Lotions $17.00 on Amazon

Hello everyone! I hope you are starting your week off well! I am well over winter and there’s still a long way to go :( But instead of focusing on the sad, I’ll write about something good… I have found my new favorite lotion! I thought I already had a favorite, but I was wrong! No7 Completely Quenched Moisturizing Body Lotion absolutely blew me away, and made me raise my lotion standards.

02192013 No7 Completely Quenching Moisturising Body Lotion boots certified fabulous

First off, this lotion did everything it claimed to do for me - “light airy and quickly absorbed, it vanishes into thirsty skin to quench and care all day long. Softens, smoothes and evens out texture to leave skin looking healthy and radiant.” Need I say more? Well this lotion actually pulls through. The scent is exactly what I like in a lotion; smells fresh, clean, and is not overpowering. The texture is not thick or greasy, instead it absorbs quickly into my skin (something I always look for in a lotion) and my skin stays moisturized all day. The really exciting thing about this lotion is that it smoothes out the texture of my skin. I have never used a body lotion that noticeably changed the texture of my skin, so I was quite surprised when my skin was the softest and smoothest it has ever been! On top of that my skin looks brighter and healthier! This lotion is also hypo-allergenic, so it’s great for those with sensitive skin. I can’t wait for this winter to end because I will be ready for those short shorts come spring/summer with this lotion as my weapon!

At $10.99 I will be buying this product again and again, but if you’re looking for a lower priced option, check out Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture Hypoallergenic Lotion for $6.99 at a local CVS or $3.59 on amazon.com. 

Higher option - VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Face-Hand-Body Lotion - which also helps to achieve younger-looking skin. This lotion is priced at $45.
