I recently had some coupons and freebies from Bath and Body Works. Since I have been all about doing my nails lately, and my hands are so super dry and uncomfortable, I snagged a few beauties from the True Blue Spa line.

I got the 60 second manicure hand scrub, Paraffin super softening hand lotion and raspberry mojito cream gel. The hand scrub is a 5oz jar that I can imagine will last me for a while. It’s a sugar scrub, in a gel like base. Glycerin and shea butter are high on the list of ingredients.  My skin loves both of these. This is a really pampering treat to use on my hands. They were so soft after! Its scent is citrusy and light. I used the hand lotion after drying. I’ve used this paraffin lotion before, and I love it! It’s very moisturizing and rich, without being greasy.It has olive, apricot and avacado oils, along with shea butter. The scent is light and pleasant, citrusy to my nose.

The raspberry mojito cream gel is quite a unique product! It feels very lightweight, and almost sticky when you first apply. it. It sinks in immediately and there’s no more tackiness! It smells divine, like a raspberry mojito! The scent is light and not overwhelming at all. My skin stayed suprisingly soft and moisturized all day with this. My skin is very dry, and I was pleasantly surprised that this worked so well!

I’d highly recommend the Bath and Body Works true blue spa for a pampering mani/pedi at home! :)

I would love to see Bath and Body Works come out with a cuticle butter or two!!

Have you tried anything from the true blue spa line? What did you think?

BeautiControl Product Review

I recently won a contest on another blog, and had the opportunity to try some BeautiControl Spa products! I haven’t tried this brand before, and I am happy to have been introduced to it!

I was sent the Sugar Blossom body wash, Warming Trend Green Tea masque and Detox Spa clay masque.

The sugar blossom body wash is thick and moisturizing. It has a very soft and feminine scent, really lovely! It reminds me of something that I can’t quite put my finger on… The scent lingers softly for a couple of hours after use. It’s quite concentrated, you won’t need much! I’ve been meaning to try it as a bubble bath too.

The warming trend green tea masque is unlike any skin care product I’ve tried! After you cleanse your face, massage this mask in for a minute or two. It actually warms up on your skin! My face was super soft and pampered after using this. I like that this mask has so many natural ingredients and extracts.

I saved the best for last! I LOVE the detox clay masque! I use this at least once a week to keep my skin unclogged. It’s the least drying clay masque I’ve ever come across! I love the smell too. It’s clay-like and earthy to my nose. I have very dry skin this winter and the fact that this doesn’t dry me out is a miracle! This mask also has a good amount of natural ingredients and extracts.

Thank you Erin, for introducing me to BeautiControl! Please have a look at Erin’s BeautiControl website, and her blog! I’m sure she’d be happy to answer any questions you have about BeautiControl products!
