rub my body...

HAHA I decided to post the products that I use to hydrate and protect my skin...just a quick, simple post for you ladies.

H20+ products are the best...the site says:
Drench thirsty skin with a fruity, tropical refreshment enriched with shea butter.
Size 8 fl oz \ 240 ml
Price $11.50

I first tried this product out [but the kiwi one] a few years ago since it was on sale at Nordstrom's...I believe it was maybe $9? Don't know, but it smelled so good and I fell in love. Right now I have the Raspberry scent. This lotion isn't too thick, but it definitely moisturizes my skin. I have quite dry skin in the winter, and just by using this at night, in the morning my skin feels refreshed!! lotion...but not just ANY baby lotion, but the Johnson's Bedtime Lotion. It says:
Johnson's® has created a nightly routine that is proven to help your baby fall asleep easier and sleep through the night better. Before bed, treat your baby to a warm bath, then gently massage skin with Johnson's® Bedtime Lotion®. Each product releases NaturalCalm™, a patent-pending blend of gentle and soothing aromas. Your baby will drift off to a better night's sleep.

It runs about $4.99.

It smells sweet like a baby, and the scent is so soothing that it DOES help me sleep better. I usually use this on a regular basis before I go to sleep [I only use the H20+ when my skin is extra dry], and it works well. It's not sticky and overpowering; it just feels nice.

This product I like because it smells nice...smells just like the Cucumber Melon from Bath and Body works for a cheaper price and more product. It does the job is getting rid of itchy, dry skin, and again, this is a baby product. I love it nonetheless.

Sephora Body Butters...they all smell amazing. I swear...I could eat them out of the container...I have Coconut Cream and Peach Blossom. I use these on my knees and elbows and within the next day, they aren't dry and rough anymore, but now smooth and soft. The butters are really thick, but they deeply moisturize those dry spots.

As for protection from the sun, I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock with SPF70. I heard these weren't good for you because of the chemicals it gives off and you could inhale them, but I'm not dead yet and I've been using it for about a year almost everyday. I spray it on in a very airy, open room, hold my breath, spray, and run to the next room. So yeah...looks like it's protecting's a mini-story...

For years I was always protective of my skin and ran from the sun because I never wanted to get tan...and then one summer, I don't know what happened. I had the urge to go to the beach and go there for one goal...tan. It was after I broke up with a two-year boyfriend, and I needed to hang out with one of my closest friends again...and so we TANNED almost once a week the whole gotta love Cali...we would take turns driving 40 mins or more in tan. the end of the summer...I was like a golden gingerbread cookie. One summer I spent tanning...I threw away YEARS AND YEARS of running from the sun. And now...I wish I hadn't done that :[ So that's why I run again...puahaha!!

Anyways...those are the products I use a lot of the time...there's a few more but those products don't get used on a regular basis. Whee...that was a LONG, but fun entry. Enjoy!
