Over the last few weeks, I have accumulated some of the best bath and body products I think I’ve found to date. I wanted to share some of these with you as a sneak peek to some of my all-time favorite beauty and self-care products I will be detailing in my next YouTube video! Let’s get started.
1. Love Beauty and Planet’s “Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang” Shampoo and Conditioner
I was literally staring at the hair care wall at Walmart for about 20 minutes before I found these new beauties, glowing with the angelic light of promises of fantastic hair days. After browsing their selection of fragrances, I settled on the coconut oil and Ylang Ylang scent. Not only does this smell fantastic, but it helps control damaged hair (ever since bleaching my ends, my hair has never been the same…)
From what I could tell both in-store and online, the bottle is only available in one size (13.5 oz). However, a little goes a looooooong way, especially with their lightweight conditioner. The formula is made in a “less is more” fashion, so you get softer, silkier hair without using half the bottle.
I looked into the company and found some awesome missions and goals that they strive for with all of their products. They are 100% Vegan and NEVER test on animals. This is something that has become really important to me along with ethical resourcing–– and yes, they do that, too. LBP also pledges to release their annual carbon emission reports and tax the carbon they emit. Pretty awesome, right?
2. Love Beauty and Planet’s “Murumuru Butter & Rose” 2 Minute Magic Masque
Another LBP product I picked up was this hair mask. The directions say to use this after shampooing to give dull hair some of its life and shine back. It most definitely did. Immediately, I could tell that my hair was stronger, shinier and healthier than when I was using other brands (big plus = no split ends!)
My boyfriend happened to catch a whiff of my hair after I styled it and he really liked the scent. This mask–––paired with the shampoo and conditioner–––blended nicely together since they aren’t heavily perfumed. At just $3 plus tax, I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be purchasing this again whenever I’m in the need for a desperate hair pick-me-up.
3. Bath and Body Works’ Aromatherapy Collection in “Focus” (Eucalyptus & Tea)
This is one of my favorite gifts I received from Christmas this year. I am a huge fan of B&BW’s Aromatherapy “Stress Relief” which smells like eucalyptus and spearmint. So, naturally, I fell in love with this scent as well.
I have yet to use the bath soak, but I have used both the bath wash and the lotion and they are wonderful. B&BW has a way with lotions and hand creams, and I will consistently use their products for that reason. Plus, their semi-annual sales always get me (some products farther down on this list were results of binge shopping their 75% off clearance bins. Oops.)
4. Bath and Body Works’ Aromatherapy Collection in “Energy” (Citrus & Ginger)
A recurring scent with any B&BW products that I buy is the “Energy” scent from the Aromatherapy collection. Similarly to the “Focus” scent, I love that this is a staple item in my stash of self-care products.
I love my sugar scrubs, so having a body scrub I can keep in the shower is a plus. The smell immediately jolts me awake and is super invigorating. The body cream absorbs immediately and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy like some lotions do. It’s ultra moisturizing, which is needed during these cold months in Tennessee.
5. Bath and Body Works’ “White” and “Rose” Scented Cosmic Cream and Fragrance Mist
I picked this duo up at one of B&BW’s semi-annual sales (along with the “Rose” scented variation) when I first moved into my new apartment.
The “White” scent smells absolutely lovely, with a musky base and hints of vetiver and jasmine. It’s an aloe-based lotion, so it leaves your skin feeling hydrated and soft.
Same goes for the “Rose” scent; it’s truly delicious. With a blend of rose absolute, red currant and patchouli, you really can’t go wrong.
Honestly, both of these were definitely impulse buys. However, they are awesome additions to my ever-growing supply of B&BW products. You call it an obsession, I call it true love.
I mean… if you find something good, why not indulge?
