Avon Original Skin So Soft Creamy Body Wash Review

Disclosure, I am an Independent Avon Representative.I have a bit of a nostalgic attachment to the Avon Skin So Soft collection. I clearly remember the Avon Lady coming to our house when I was younger and my mom using the Original Skin So Soft line. To me it smells a bit like a floral baby powder but it’s not overpowering at all. I find it to be a soft gentle scent.

The Original Skin So Soft Creamy Body Wash is formulated with jojoba oil to leave skin soft. It lathers well on a pouf and rinses clean. This is the 11.8 fl. oz. size. For campaigns 5 and 6 it is on sales for $4.49 (originally $8).

The Original Skin So Soft comes in a Replenishing Hand Crean, Body Lotion, Bath Oil and Creamy Body Wash (see photo below). They have the Original Skin So Soft formula in a Bath Oil Spray, Body Wash, Shower Gel, Gelled Body Oil and Oil-Infused Foaming Body Wash.

Products are Made in the USA.

To purchase the Avon Original Skin So Soft Creamy Body Wash or any other Avon product you can visit my online store at: https://www.youravon.com/bonnied.

It’s Skin Cookie & Hand Cream Review

Holy Hand Cream! The It’s Skin Cookie & Hand Cream not only looks good enough to eat it also smells amazing too and is helping my Winter hands.

This Korean beauty product comes in three “flavors” — Original, Mint and Strawberry. Price $6.50

According to the It’s Skin website “each hand cream contains soft cookie chip pieces that melt when massaged—leaving skin soft and smooth but never greasy.

The Cookie & Hand Cream has Macadamia Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter, and Sweet Almond Oil and it really makes my hands happy and the dog thinks I have cookies!

Bath & Body Works Shea Butter Hand Cream Review

What’s to love? 

First up I just love the size of these tubes. They are perfect for purses or gifts and the artwork is adorable.

They come in 20 scents including: Vanilla Butter Cream, Black Cherry Merlot, Fiji White Sands, Sparkling Limoncello, French Lavender, Sweet As Strawberries, Pretty As A Peach, Jamaica Pineapple Colada, Heart Of Gold, Mint To Be, You Are My Sunshine, Maui Mango Mai Tai, Aloe-Ha, Peach Bellini, Forever Pink, Watermelon Lemonade and my favorite, Eucalyptus Spearmint.

I have seven scents and they are amazing. The white cream has a twist-off top on the tube and has Shea Butter and Vitamin E to soften hands. I think these are more like a small version of the Ultra Shea Body Cream only for hands and in new scents. They do wonders for my hands too.

I included 2 of the “green” scents in my Bath & Body Works St. Patrick’s Day Haul too if you want to check it out.

The Body Shop Stocking Stuffer Gift Sets (Spiced Apple & Merry Kis-Mas Wand)

If you’re looking for some adroable and quality stocking stuffers The Body Shop has got you covered with the Spiced Apple Treats Gift  Set for $10 and the Merry Kis-Mas Wand for $24. I have to say that over the years I have loved The Body Shop products and it’s fun to see that they have a nice Holiday line too.

What’s to love?

Spiced Apple Treats Gift Set – In this set you get a Mini Spiced Apple Body Butter, Mini Spiced Apple Shower Gel and Small Bath Lily. Spiced apple smells amazing…just like baked apples in cinnamon and the body butter always leaves my hands so smooth.

Merry Kis-Mas Wand –  I got this cute set for my mom who loves lip products. It’s a round pink lip box on a stick so it looks like a sucker and you get 5 Lip Butters in Strawberry, Raspberry, Satsuma, Watermelon and Passionberry. I am a huge fan of the lip butters as they soften and protect even in the coldest weather. The lip butters do have a tint and a gloss too which is so nice.

 

 

Lush Charity Pot Hand And Body Lotion Review

Every time I go to my local Lush store I pick up a small pot of Charity Pot Hand And Body Lotion, our entire family loves this stuff and “100% of the purchase price (every single penny minus the taxes) goes towards supporting humanitarian, environmental and animal rights causes locally and around the world.” Which is so cool!

What’s to love?

Aside from the charity part which is awesome this hand and body lotion is my go-to lotion for dry hands and feet.

The formula is made from Fair Trade Shea Butter, Fair Trade Cocoa Butter and Fair Trade Olive Oil with a mix of Geranium Oil, Rosewood Oil, Ylang Ylang Oil and Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute for scent. This lotion has a woodsy floral scent that I really love and it’s so smooth and luxurious and it’s now in the self-preserving formula.

I love that Lush gives their customers a way to contribute to charity by purchasing their products. Just one more reason to love Lush!

Price: $7.95 for 1.7 oz.

OK, last Bath & Body Works review of the day! Marshmallow Pumpkin Latte has got to be my favorite Bath & Body Works scent of the Fall season and I already have the foaming hand soap and the body lotion…now I have the hand cream!

What’s to love?

I got this hand cream for free with a coupon from Bath & Body Works today and I love it. Their hand cream has Shea Butter and Vitamin E which makes my hands feel so soft. I also like that this formula light-weight and not sticky.

But the smell is what makes this one my favorite! This creamy mix of marshmallow and latte has a hint of pumpkin that truly relaxing to smell. I’m keeping this one on my desk for dry hands and aroma therapy this Fall.
