New Beauty Buys


I don’t change up my beauty regime often – once I find what works for me, I buy it in bulk and stick with it. However, a couple of weeks ago I decided to experiment with some new beauty products and I’m so glad I did! Here are my thoughts on these products:

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser ~ I use a small amount of this in the morning to wash my face. It does a good job of cleaning my skin while keeping it soft. You know that dry and tight feeling you get after washing your face sometimes? None of that here!

Arcona Cranberry Gommage ~ I use this once a week. This is probably the best scrub I’ve ever used. A little goes a long way, which is a good thing because it’s not the cheapest. I noticed the results right away, my skin felt über soft and refreshed.

L’Occitane Body Oil ~ This doubles as my body wash and shaving oil. I love the neutral almond scent. I also feel like my skin retains the moisture from the oil even after I shower. I’ve skipped putting on body lotion because of this!

Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub ~ I use this once a week as well. I’ve tried a wide variety of body scrubs and this is by far the best one I’ve used. I use a small amount and work it in all over. The smell is so beautiful, it really does make me feel pampered whenever I use it.

I’ve been tempted to try the L’Occitane body oil for awhile, and I think I may just need to give it a go already! Love your site!

I never tried that L’Occitane Body Oil before, but I love their lotions. Definitely need to check this out. Great post!


Thanks Eden! L’Occitane does have some really nice lotions too.
