Who doesn’t love Rodial and their Boob Job, Crash Diet and other cheekily-named body products? Unfortunately because the amount of actives that are packed in each of them, those products don’t come cheap. What does come cheap is the brand’s diffusion line Nip + Fab and they’ve just launched a new line bath and body products all of which retail for under $10.
With a name like The Gnarly Whale you know this brand has to be eco-friendly and vegan…am I right!? And I don’t mean that in a bad way…am totally loving the name and the fact that the brand focuses on using as few ingredients as possible in their all-natural bath and body line-up.
The bath is my sanctuary. A nice, long soak solves all most problems, whether it’s exhaustion, a headache, an oncoming cold, or just general crankiness. It’s about as close to the Fountain of Youth as we’re going to get. You step in after a long day, and reemerge fresh and new.
The Retexturizing Body Butter is one of my favorite beauty products of all time. I have an entire cabinet full of lotions (don’t we all?) but none of them do what this can do and makes me feel the way this does.
I’ve been blaming my addiction to Greek yogurt for my skin woes, but ironically while dairy might be horrible for my skin when eaten, it works great on it topically (I’ll write about it more in a few weeks, but I recently start using one of Korres’ night creams and so far have experienced fantastic results).
I have, in the name of research, waxed myself…talk about the least fun thing to do on a weekend! It’s uncomfortable and I’m not nearly as good at it as when someone else does it for me – plus you can really only go over the same area twice before you risk possible irritation, making it all the more important that you’re efficient when it comes to getting all your hairs (and I am not).
Everything is multi-purpose these days – smart phones, kitchen appliances…there are even toilets with heated seats! Why not indulge in beauty products with as many functions? Anything to give you a few more minutes to spend time with your family and friends, or god forbid – sleep – is worth considering.
