I should take a picture of my bath products in the shower for you some time but I’m a little embarrassed. Anyone who uses my bathroom usually comments on how many body cleansing products I keep in the tub area – bar soaps, cleansing creams, bath gels … I must have about 14 different ones tub-side, and now I’ll be adding Caress White Orchid and Coconut Milk Shower Foam that I bought at CVS and cvs.com.

I am pretty obsessed with all things coconut each spring and orchids are one of my favorite flowers to look at, though I have a problem keeping them alive, so I love that they combined the two in this cleanser.

Spring Scents are Knocking at My Door

Which season excites you the most? I love the Christmas season, well, that’s not really a “season” per say so if I have to pick one, it has to be Spring. The colors the smells, it’s just exciting. To celebrate its arrival, I’ll be doing an on-going feature of some of my favorite scents that have come out recently that are really helping feel the season. Will you be picking any of these up for yourself?

Spring-Products-Lise-Waiter-Nivea-Caress-Hillhouse-Naturals-Fruits-&-Passion

FRUITS & PASSION Avocado Lip Balm ($5 @ fruitsandpassion.com) from the Nourishing Collection – Mmm, I love me some avocado this time of year and this balm has all good things for lips like Shea Butter and 10% avocado oil.

LISE WATIER
Folies Neiges Eau de Toilette Spray
($75/1.7oz @ lisewatier.com) – this may have come out last fall but the timing is so fitting right now! It showcases citrus notes, imbued with fruity, refreshing accents of orange and mandarin.

NIVEA
Touch of Sparkle Cream Oil Body Wash
($6.99/16.9oz @ walgreens.com) – I have just come to realize that I love the smell of the White Calla Blossom and this one is more than satisfying my desire. The name of the product makes it seem that it will leave behind some kind of shimmer or sparkle but I didn’t see any, which is probably better.

HILLHOUSE NATURALS
100% Soy Wax in Tin Candle
in Bloom ($12.50/5oz @ hillhousenaturals.com) – if you really need to set the mood on a warm evening, light this one to disperse the smell of water lilies, fresh bamboo, jasmine, teak and pure lotus flower. So lush!
 
CARESS Velvet Bliss Beauty Bar ($9.99/4-pack @ drugstores nationwide or target.com) – soap scents are getting creative these days. How about this combination of Blackberry and Vanilla Essence?? Lather, rinse, repeat. Lather, rinse, repeat …

Go On Vacation With Caress

CaressCARESS Brazilian Exotic Oil Infusions Body Wash ($5.19/15oz @ walgreens.com) is one of those luxe vacation-in-a-bottle products that won’t break the bank. For me, body washes are pretty much the same and it’s usually the scent that makes it or breaks it. For the most part that is.

 

This one blends Passion Flower Cream and the Acai Fruit oil so the formula is pretty thick. The added oils seem to hydrate well as my arms don’t feel so in need of lotion after I get out of the shower. Nice one.
