Newest obsession: The Body Shop.
I had tried stuff from The Body Shop when I was in college and thought it was ok. I liked their oil diffusers and used one to add some lovely fragrance to my apt when I first lived here. But lately, I've been noticing that I'm getting older (ugh) and my skin isn't doing as well as it used to and I've become a bit paranoid that I haven't been protecting it enough from the harsh elements of nature. So back to The Body Shop I went to try out their Seaweed line, made for people with combination skin like me - oily T-zone but really dry cheeks. I've been really impressed! And I like feeling like I'm taking care of my skin (plus it's great to not have skin that hurts and to feel like a giant oil slick sometimes).
They've been having an awesome sale post-holidays and yesterday I tried out their body lotion and I love it!! Not only do they smell amazing (the strawberry, grapefruit and satsuma scents are body lotion purees, YUM) but unlike most lotions that I usually hate using, they're not greasy and I don't feel like I'm leaving sticky residue everywhere I go. Even Matt, who hates anything frou frou, said it made his skin feel less winter itchy and it felt nice. Go figure!
So go out and give these babies a try...I'm wearing grapefruit on my hands right now and they smell so good that I almost want to take a bite out of myself, haha.
