Celebrate National Skin Care Month with Quince Body Butter

Its national skin care awareness month, so treat your skin to something special and give Quince Body Butters a try for yourself!

 


I recently tried three of the seven Quince Body Butter products, and I was more than impressed with how soft and supple my skin was feeling after only a few days of applying the butters to my hands and feet.

The first two butters I used were the Soothing Body Butter and the Replenishing Body Butter.  The Soothing Butter is scented with Aloe and Brazil nut and was probably my favorite scent of the butters I used.  The scent for the Replenishing Butter was Macadamia Lemongrass, which was very mellow compared to the other scents.

They both had an interesting, almost waxy texture that was excellent at penetrating the dry skin on my feet.  As a college student, I spend much of my time walking and I also exercise often, so my feet can really take a beating.  It was a special treat to come back to my room after a long day of movement and follow up my shower with a foot massage using these deliciously scented butters.

The third butter was the energizing butter and I used almost exclusively on my hands.  It had a wonderful, butter cream frosting texture, which my friend Megan (who also tried the butters) described to me as something she would “eat off a cupcake!”  It was scented like Pistachios and Green Tea, which made me want to smell my hands all day long.  This last lotion was my favorite out of the three, and my hands were super soft after only a few days use.

Also, you can feel good about buying Quince Body Butters because they do not test their products on animals and they do not use ureas or parabens as preservatives.  You can go to http://www.quincebutters.com to learn more about Quince and their line of skincare products.

I Luv BBW – Bath & Body Works Review & Semi Annual Sale

 

As you already know from my previous post I love Bath & Body Works.  I’ve been using their products since they began and continue to love them more and more.

 

Recently I participated in the #BBWSummer Twitter party. If you’re not on Twitter yet you are missing out. It’s one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. Plus it’s a great place to connect with all the brands you love.

 

During the #LuvBBW party we talked about summer, our favorite Bath & Body Works products and tons more. Their parties are always a blast.

I was thrilled to win a fab gift bag with tons of amazing products. Especially since they were scents I have not yet tried.

 

I received the Malibu Heat Triple Moisture Body Cream, Malibu Heat Fine Fragrance Mist, Malibu Heat Shower Gel, True Blue Spa Cooling Sunscreen Mist in SPF 30, True Blue Spa After Sun Moisturizer Hold It Right There, Slatkin & Co. White Sand Candle and a cute tote bag.

 

 

Malibu Heat

Malibu Heat reminds me of a yummy Malibu Bay Breeze. My hubby thought so too. Malibu Heat is a fresh blend of juicy pineapple, California orange and creamy coconut milk inspired by hot pink sunsets and twenty-seven miles of beautiful beach.

 

True Blue Spa Cooling Sunscreen

I had never tried their sunscreen before and it went on really nice. I’ve found that the spray sunscreens can smell a bit potent but this had a nice fragrance and gave great coverage.

Who wouldn’t wear sunscreen when it feels this good to put on? This SPF 30 sunscreen is a cool, refreshing mist that’s ridiculously easy to apply.

  • The fast drying formula compliments your on-the-go lifestyle
  • Quick-drying, ultra-lightweight texture

True Blue Spa After Sun Moisturizer Hold It Right There

Holy creamsicle! This smells amazing! This moisturizer went on very smooth but the kicker for me truly was the smell. Once you achieve the perfect tan, you’ll of course want to keep your pasty, pale friends jealous as long as possible. However sun exposure can cause dry skin and cause free radicals to age and damage skin. Their special after sun formula contains antioxidant vitamins C & E to help combat free radicals.

  • With soothing, moisturizing Aloe Vera to calm sunkissed skin
  • Lightweight, spreadable formula
  • Not tested on animals

Slatkin & Co. White Sand Candle

I love Slatkin candles and I love the beach! Who doesn’t? Now I can have the best of both worlds. Like the first long days of summer at the beach – sparkling grapefruit and sandalwood, with coconut milk and summer jasmine.

  • Highly fragranced candle created exclusively by Harry Slatkin and developed and tested by our team of Home Fragrance experts
  • Made using the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an exclusive blend of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks for optimal performance
  • 4 oz. candle burns approximately 20 to 30 hours

 

I am so thankful to Bath & Body Works for giving me the opportunity to try out these amazing products. I loved them all. Go figure!

 

Their Semi-Annual Sale is going on now so hurry and go stock up!
