My poor feet need some TLC 💢🦶🏻
I found this on the shelf while aiding my hiking addiction on a recent trip. It was in an aisle of homeopathic cures and oils for muscle aches and skin problems, but it struck my eye because of its actives: lactic acid and urea. The former is a chemical exfoliant that I have grown fond of since using a cleanser with it, and the latter is a natural compound produced by skin that also helps to soften and exfoliate. As unnerving a word as “urea” is, this stuff surprised me at how well it tackled my dry, earth-worn feet like a linebacker looking for a college scholarship. I fully admit that my feet are drier than a lizard’s ass, summer and winter. I actually get such huge cracks that at least one mountaineer a year falls into the crevasses of my heels and ankles and needs a search and rescue team. They hurt. I’ve slathered deep moisturizing creams on them to no avail, like bailing out a yacht with a paper cup. This new lotion gives me hope that if I use the right compounds, I can actually stop dryness at the source and keep it from getting so bad to begin with. It’s the middle of summer currently and I’m punishing my feet like they have a lesson to learn: I’m hiking, camping, and swimming, all of which put a strain on my already dry heels and soles. I came home recently from a three day trip and I had dryness like it had been the middle of winter where I’d camped. It was the start of bad foot pain. I picked this up on my way home and after even three uses (one after getting home, another at night, and another this morning) I’ve already stopped the painful cracking and softened the toughness on my feet. Now there is a benefit to having toughened skin on pressure points for hikers, but if my feet hurt I can’t walk or camp. This stuff really helps the most painful parts of the feet and give me a luxurious lavender pampering in the comfort of civilization after I’m done wearing my body out in the wilderness. It’s not as intense as a foot peel, but it gives instant results even on my most dry areas.

barbarellaI found it at a Marshall’s megastore (three stores in one). It retailed there for four dollars but I assume that it’s maybe twice that for the bottle elsewhere. I would still pay full price for it: lovely smell, works instantly, and helps a lot. We’ll have to see how it fares in winter but it helped my cracked heels a ton!

BODY TALK. These @paulaschoice body treatments were essential for keeping my skin smooth and hydrated throughout the summer and will continue to be my go-to’s well I to winter! • The Weightless Body Treatment with 2% BHA is (as the name suggests) lightweight and absorbs quickly without and residue making it perfect for the summer or anyone who doesn’t like the feel of a thicker body cream. I like to apply directly out of the shower and then if I want a scented lotion I’ll apply that 10 minutes or so later. But overall this has REALLY helped to smooth out dry patches and uneven texture on the back of my arms and helped eliminate the tiny little bumps I get after shaving on my upper legs. My husband, who is prone to keratosis pilaris, also finds it to be very helpful and I’m really curious to get his feedback on the 10% version! • The Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% has a bit more of a rich lotion consistency so I’ve been saving it for the brutally dry winter months here in Denver and will be adding this beauty into rotation this week. Curious to see how the increased AHA % will effect my results. With antioxidants, ceramides, and a targeted peptide, I have a feeling that the Daily Replenishing Body Cream will be another winter skin savior!
I wanted to share about this gorgeous body oil I received from bastide recently. As you may have noticed, I've been super into natural, artisanal, kind of old-world style brands these days, and I've been loving oils lately as well. The Bastide body oil smells like 🍊 orange blossoms and it's a "dry" oil so it absorbs extremely fast. I have very dry skin on my legs and applying a body oil right after a shower seems to be the best solution for them without feeling sticky and gross. I loooove using this one -- it smells amazing and it sinks in immediately. If I can't soak up the sun in Aix-en-Provence in person, at least I can apply the product of its sunshine on my skin!
I am using IPSY to try new things and this was given to me as a moisturizer. I like this because it not only smells good it’s perfect for my skin. I have dry skin and this does the trick. I could not find the product but it is called Céla (Créme Rose). Company: thisiscela.com. It is a Canadian company so it may be weird with shipping.
Aesop skincare Got all 3 and tried all 3 😊 The Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm (beige color) is meant to be mega nourishing and moisturizing. It’s meant to be used on very dry areas. Scent: vanilla, woody and citrus) The Geranium Leaf Body Balm (green color) is meant to keep your skin feel soft and hydrated. It can be used from neck to toe and you can add extra amount to dry areas. Scent: green, citrus and fresh. The Rind Concentrate Body Balm (orange color) absorbs quickly into the skin and is said to leave the skin slightly hydrated. It’s great for post sun exposure. I tried all these three and for me they were all equally moisturizing were only minor (moisturizing) differences or so I experienced. My favorite one from all these was the The Rind Concentrate Body Balm. I found it to be very light weight yet moisturizing and love the way it smelled! However, even tho the Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm is meant to be the most nourishing and perfect for extreme dry skin I just could not stand the smell. Personally I thought it was way too strong and I usually don’t go for anything with vanilla but there is something else in it that is very overpowering and I just used it once or twice. Aesop is a very good brand in my opinion and if I would re-purchase any of these it would be the Rind Concentrate Body Balm or Geranium Leaf Body Balm. I do only wish that it came in 100 ml size so that I could take it in my carry on when I travel because the Rind Concentrate Body Balm is perfect for post sun body balm.

I received this product in my recent fabfitfun box. I’m not someone that uses a body cream or lotion every day. I’ve wanted to get better at this, so with this body cream, I’ve been trying to use it more than normal. I love the scent of this, it’s very fresh and warm. Very calming. This soaks into my skin very well and doesn’t leave any residue or weird texture after. I had never heard of this company before and after doing some research I love how natural all of their products are. I would really like to try some of the others things they offer.

lets take moment to appreicate all the pretty pinks of jurlique . You can't not love how sexy they lay but also how wonderfully helpful they are to the skin. The other day a few new products including the rosehip body oil and the lotion componet to their herbal recovery line🌟 . can I just say I had no idea I was missing out on the lotion to this line and I'm extremely sad that I did't just grab it sooner. With the mist and serum I can now jump to the lotion while still getting all the benefits of the herbal recovery a line that focuses revitalizing the skin while firming and of course anti-aging🌟 . of the entire collection I'm most pleased with the rosehip body because of how the dry oil penerates deep into dry spots around my legs and thighs. I absolutely love body oils and this one is my top 5. The smell of roses 🌹 is settle yet lingers almost all day while smoothing out my dull skin from the harsh LA water. Unlike most oils this surprising lightweight and a bit spotty because of the how intently it targets dry areas. I have to use more than I want but it is worth it once my skin is drenched in it🌟 . this Australian brand is one that provides the treasures of their country into each bottle they produce. They harvest all their ingredients from they own land and have years of experience in horticultural and botany. I'm impressed at how refined their formulas are and can't wait to pick up the entire herbal recovery line. From the formulation to the packaging Jurlique is making moves I can get use to . .
