Favorite Products Right Now: Dr. Bonners Almond Soap/Lay It On Thick Lotion: Bath and Body Works.

In body products, Dr. Bonner's Peppermint Soap, Face, For Everybody, Skin Care on December 10, 2009 at 9:18 am

hey people. tryinta keep you updated a bit more often, since i kinda sucked at that last month. lol. i wanted to update with this post sooner, but caught a cold. since im shaking off the flu now, we can get started.
ive got a couple of things to go over. but first, we can start with two of my new favorite body products. well, neither is really new to me, but I havent told you about them, so they are probably new to you. lol.
Dr. Bonners Almond Scented Soap and surprisingly… Bath And Body Work’s Lay it On Thick Shea Butter Lotion.

we’ll start with Dr. Bonners, since ive touched and talked about this product in the past. always a great product for all over body use, 100% natural and organic, and always for fair trade. ive been using it since i was a kid… it was all mom ever bought. mostly because one bottle can last you for up to 3 months, if you dilute and use it correctly. well over the years, their product has expanded to different oils and scents, and i just found almond. man this stuff smells great. all of it smells great really, with peppermint being my favorite… but if youre looking for a non-minty, milder version of this great soap, this is the scent youre going for. this was great for those long tub soaks, and the oil in the soap is a great skin softener. you should really try it out sometimes.

so then, when you get out the shower, smelling all nice and fresh… youve got to put on lotion, right? now the problem is dry skin for me. normal lotion hasnt worked on me for years… even good old lubriderm left me ashy after a few hours. after a while, i just switched over to cocoa butter and vitamin e oils. after hearing about my troubles, a coworker introduced me to her new favorite lotion, called Lay it on Thick. now when anyone mentions buying products at Bath &Body Works, i usually am suspicious. they are great for scents, but their lotions… i wasnt too sure about. until this.
Now they werent lying when they named it “Lay it on THICK.” lool. the product ($20 for a big 10 oz bottle) is so thick coming out the container that you have to squeeze extra hard to get it out. which is a good sign for me. made from shea butter, macadamia nut oils, vitamin e, vitamin a extract and several other yummy ingredients for the skin… it goes on like a thick, rich cream over the body. the best part about is that the product absorbs into the skin so fast… youre rarely left with any over-oily or greasy feeling on your body. it kept my skin moist for the fully day… with no ashy or dry spots popping up at any point. and scented like almonds (yay!) with a touch of vanilla… the smell is another nice win. nice, but never overpowering. i had stopped using this product for a while because i was really into my bio oil and vitamin e set up i had going… but after running out of bio oil, i broke out what was left of this lotion, and was reminded of how kickass it really is. if you need a little heavy moisturizer this winter season, id say give this a try. ill be switching to this while i give the bio oil a well deserved break.

well, thats all i have for now. im rusty with this after a while. lol. well be getting back to the hair shortly. making decisions on whether i wanna go get a trim or leave it growing for as long as i can. also, since im almost out of ovation (and you will be hearing about that shortly)… im planning out what product to move to next. i think ill finally be giving Surge a try.

ill be back later.

  1. I might have to try that Bath N Body works lotion!

  2. I L-O-V-E Lay It On Thick! Not only does it feel wonderful, but out of all of the Bath & Body True Blue products this smells the best. I noticed that the unscented version is less oily than the original scent. Or is it just me??
