Its September! Autumn is soon approaching and you know what that means! YOU MUST prepare your skin  for the weather change. Like anything in life, you have to have the proper foundation and the same goes for your skin!  In the cooler months, our beautiful brown skin tones go from that summer glow to the winter snow in a matter of seconds (ashy skin is not the jam ladies!) Keep the Summer skin all Autumn long with these products!


- Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Invigorating Spa Scrub $24.00

True Blue Spa is a fairly new line at Bath & Body Works and it is the! I Love how this scrub exfoliates the skin and soothes the senses with a hint of eucalyptus! Natural sea salt detoxifies the body, so rid yourself of toxins while pampering your beautiful temple!


- Origins Ginger Body Scrub $35.00

Not a lot of people love the scent of ginger, but this scrub has a citrus-ginger scent that is AMAZING! Origins has so many great products for the face & body, but this scrub tops the list!

- Carol’s Daughter Ecstasy Sea Salt Scrub $22.40 

When I say this scrub will have you in the tub “ooohing & ahhhing” , IM NOT KIDDING! The name isn’t Ecstasy for nothing! The scent is so sensual, you’ll want to throw on the slow jams, light candles and pop a bottle of champagne!  Mmmm…

Moisturizers & Body Creams:

- Bath & Body Works Body Butter $15.00

Bath & Body Works has definitely stepped their game up over the years and these body butters are the TRUTH! They provide 24 hours of moisture (trust me, I’ve tested them!) and smell so divine on the skin. After a few days of use, your skin is noticeably softer! If you already have a favorite scent at B&BW, there is a body butter waiting for you!

Gratiae Silky Body Butter $59.99

Gratiae is on the pricey side, but this Israeli body butter is one of the SILKIEST butters I’ve ever tried! Its super smooth and comes in two scents, Passion Fruit & Lime and Apple, Green Tea & Ginger. It’s made from organic ingredients and is one that every woman should splurge on!

- 100% Unrefined Shea Butter $5.00+

Good ol’ fashioned shea butter will always do the trick! Whether it’s the ivory or yellow, it will keep your skin moisturized and protected all day! I love to order my shea butter from! If you’re not a fan of how oily Shea makes your skin, WHIP IT! (yummy recipe coming soon!)

So there you have it! If you have any amazing exfoliants or body creams, care to share! These are my favorites, we’d love to know what yours are=)

Happy Pampering!!

Love your suggestions! My skin does go haywire when the seasons change, so I am definitely trying to prep my skin before any issues arise. I LOVE (and HIGHLY recommend) the sugar scrub from LaLicious-it is absolutely exquisite and they have an array of scents to choose from that will please anybody’s nose!

I’m looking forward to trying the Gratiae one. I love almost any scrub that has sea salt from the dead sea. Origins has dome great products so I will be trying theirs and Carol’s Daughters’ too. I already use she’s butter and tried B&B. They work very well also.

The Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter is AMAZING! I just ordered it half off from a promotion that Oprah did on Good Morning America. It smells like Heaven! Leaves my skin so, so moisturized and the butter is so rich and creamy! Definitely worth a try ladies :)
