Aveeno Gentle Scent

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogAvenno recently launched their “Gentle Scent” collection, and they couldn’t have sent it to a better person. In recent years I’ve become very sensitive to scent, particularly artificial lab-created fragrance. As a result, I’ve started to opt for fragrance-free items more frequently. The Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent collection is lightly scented, but specifically with the sensitive-skinned in mind. This soap-free, dye-free formula has been allergy tested. This sensitive-skinned gal simply loves it. It leaves the skin feeling clean and lightly moisturized, not tight, itchy, or uncomfortable.

Body Wash retails for $6.49-7.49 for a 12 fl. oz. bottle. Lotion retails for $8.99-9.99 per 12 fl. oz. pump bottle.

Aveeno Daily Challenge!

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogI’m not one to shy away from a challenge, in particular when it might actually improve the look of my skin! Aveeno sent out a gift basket to their ambassadors issuing a challenge. Use Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, and Daily Moisturizing Lotion daily for the remainder of November, and report back with the results in early December.  My already dry skin is even drier with the rain and chilly weather we’ve had lately.  YES, even Arizona can sometimes be cold!

Aveeno Daily Challenge!

It’s an easy enough routine. Simply use the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash in the shower, and then apply the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion on your damp skin, or throughout the day as needed.  I’ll admit I love the way Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion feels on my skin, so re-applying has been easy to remember.

Want to participate? Anyone can!

Retail price of a 12 fl. oz pump of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion is $8.49, and Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash is $6.99.  Not a huge investment to make, for healthier looking skin!  Share your photos with the tag #AveenoDailyChallenge!

Lather Unscented Body Wash Review

Lather Unscented Body Wash Review

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogI’m  a BIG FAN of bathtime.  When my boys were little, I always made an effort to make bathtime fun.  I would blow Gymboree bubbles while they played in my soaking tub.  To them, it was much like playing in a bubbly baby pool, my tub was so deep!  I always had a bar stocked with bubble “flavors” for them to pick from.

So when it comes to experiences like adding the scent of my choice to Lather’s Unscented Body Wash, a part of me long-forgotten was truly excited!  Perhaps the best part of “mixing” a fun bath-time scent at Lather is the fact that no synthetic fragrance is used.  The essential oils added to the formula don’t just smell yummy, they are great for your skin!

I wasn’t feeling too creative, so I selected my scent from the Lather Recipes list.  I selected Lemon cupcake, knowing that the scent was playful enough to be interesting for my kids but also a welcome addition to my own morning routine.  This body wash is simply terrific!  It’s a great cleanser for dry skin.  Those with scent sensitivities can skip the oils and keep it unscented.

Lather Hand Care Regimen

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogWhen I walked into the Lather Scottsdale location, the very first thing I discussed with the store manager was the excruciating condition of my hands. Just as school was starting for my boys, I caught a horrific cold.  I had attended a “back to school” event, forgotten my hand sanitizer, and BLAM-O I was sick 48 hours later. I certainly didn’t want to spread the illness to my family, especially since my boys were about to start a new school year!

When I’m sick, I’m considerate.  I take extra care to wipe all surfaces frequently with germ-killing product, and ensure my hands are freshly cleaned before I run around touching household items.  As a result, no one else in my home caught the illness.  BUT, all of that excessive hand washing and cleaning left my hands feeling like sand paper.

Lemongrass Wasabi Hand Wash, Lather

The store manager at Lather Scottsdale pointed me in the direction of this Lemongrass Wasabi Hand Wash. Fun fact: Wasabi is a natural anti-bacterial! The mild-nature of this liquid hand soap means that even frequent hand washing won’t destroy your skin, and using it instead of my regular anti-bacterial formula helped get my hands into much better shape. The lemon scent is also divine!

Lather Hand Therapy

The icing on the cake of my Lather hand care regimen is Lather Hand Therapy. This ultra-rich hand cream absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves hands soft and soothed. I love the face that natural ingredients like shea, oat, and olive are what make this cream feel like magic!

Lemongrass Wasabi Hand Wash retails for $12, and Hand Therapy retails for $15. Click HERE to shop Lather.  Items like this also make fabulous teacher and hostess gifts, so keep them in mind with holiday quickly approaching!

Lather products are paraben-free and cruelty-free! Shipping is free on orders of $60 or more!

The first product I wanted to mention to you is the Lather Bamboo Lemongrass Body Scrub. I swear, one of the only good things about waking up each morning is knowing an encounter with this product is in my future.

It looks a whole lot like a tub of earth, doesn’t it?  The formula actually contains bamboo and walnut shell as an exfoliant, and foams up a bit as you scrub, making it easier to exfoliate larger areas with a smaller amount of product.

This scrub has a course texture, and feels much like rubbing sand from the beach on your dry skin.  It also has an eye opening lemon-zing smell that is the perfect way to kick off your day.  No worries about the scent, this product contains no artificial fragrance!  The delicious scent of this product is from the essential oils included in the formula to soften and revitalize the skin.
