Review, Ingredients: Korres Body Butter, ShowerGel In White Grape, Blossoming Peach - Ancient White Grapes

I’ve been really getting into body washes and gels since I started using the Olay Sensitive Body Wash. I am completely hooked on the loofah! So, I was excited to try some NEW body products from Korres, especially the Korres Body Butter and ShowerGel in White Grape And Blossoming Peach. I was told that this scent new to the coveted Korres Body Butters smells “amazing.” What exactly does amazing smell like?

Well, it has a sweet, citrusy, tangy scent, similar to Sprite (if the soda was in body butter form). This smoothing and moisturizing body butter is ideal for dry elbows and knees, with quince extract and shea butter that make this ultra-rich formula not too thick to work into skin. The White Grapes are also accompanied by Blossoming Peaches, which add to that tangy, lingering scent that instantly energizes me for the day ahead.

Review, Ingredients: Korres Body Butter, ShowerGel In White Grape, Blossoming Peach - Ancient White Grapes

The ancient white grapes found in this body butter and shower gel are indigenous to Santorini, and are cultivated in the dark volcanic-rich soil of the island. It grows from its own roots with sea mist water, then drifts across the island at night and is captured by the thirsty leaves in the morning dew.

The creamy-foam ShowerGel contains emollients and humectants to leave skin soft and smooth. The scent doesn’t last for too long on the skin, but the steam from your shower will make you feel like one of the drifting grapes on the calm waves of Santorini. I love body products that can take me away… from my Brooklyn bathroom.

This spring, Salma Hayek‘s NUANCE line, available only at CVS, introduces NEW hair and skincare items to firm your skin and enhance the health of your natural hair. Salma was inspired by her grandmother to create a line that enhanced the nuances of every woman’s individual beauty.

And this season, we’ll be enhancing our skin with age-defying formulas that hydrate and firm skin’s elasticity, while natural butters and botanical extracts help detangle and repair wavy and curly hair.

A blend of 5 rich oils creates a modern, weightless texture with powerful nourishing benefits. Color-Lock Technology with UVB absorbers protects color from fading during heat styling and exposure to damaging UV rays, preserving hair strength, shine and color.

Soy Protein Primer Spray — This light primer formula smooths hair to equalize its porosity. With improved hair elasticity, the primer allows for even distribution of styling products. By sealing open cuticles, the primer creates a faster drying and longer lasting style. Hair fibers are detangled immediately, due to the high levels of hydration and nourishment the primer yields. A combination of nutrients results in a vibrant, healthy, shiny, and voluminous look.

Ladies, spring has officially sprung! And I don’t know about you, but I am determined this year to go sleeveless! I overhauled my eating, joined the gym and I am now using every weapon in the fight against flab! That said, I was overjoyed when I was given a tube of the NEW Bliss fatgirlslim Arm Candy Arm-Perfecting Cream with massaging applicator.

Review, Ingredients: Bliss fatgirlslim Arm Candy Arm-Perfecting Cream - Go Sleeveless This Spring/Summer!

This product squeezes out of the massage end to make it super-easy for you to infuse the cream into your skin. I have only been using it for about a week or so, but I love the tingly, cool feeling it gives as I massage the cream into my arms. I can almost see definition in my upper arms resurfacing. This amazing product contains many slim-inducing ingredients such as:

Lactic Acid – Improves and smooths skin texture and minimizes bumps

White Sapphire - Reduces redness while brightening skintone

Moisture beads – Conditions and hydrates skin’s surface
