My favorite body cream and body exfoliant is
Almond Delicious Paste from Loccitane, after using the exfoliant, my skin leaves smoother. I used every second body. The exfoliant is very gentle.

Then I will apply the Almond milk concentrate. It has very light texture and it absorbing fast into my skin. my skin (especially my legs) become more hydrated and smoother too !!!

great products.

I got a jar of that a long time ago and took about 2 years to finish it as I don't really enjoy having my bathroom floor oiled Rolling Eyes Unless I enjoy the scent then I'm more tolerant eg. Giovanni's Cool Mint Lemonade Smile

I would have to say The BodyShop's Grapefruit Body Scrub (non-oily) for exfoliant and L'eau D'Issey Body Cream for the wonderfully warm perfume. For now, that is.

Yes it does. I put it in the same category as coconut and cocoa butter which I don't particularly like Rolling Eyes

I haven't tried the L'Occitane, but is on my list to look at. Yummy Skin makes a really nice sugar scrub as well. If you're careful when you use it so you don't get it all over the bottom of the shower, it isn't too bad to use. The results are wonderful and if you don't spill it on the floor it won't make it greasy. When you rinse it off it rinses clean and leaves your skin feeling wonderful.

The customer service at Yummy Skin is also wonderful. The first time I ordered the jar arrived with a broken lid. I sent them an email. I received a response on a Sunday and was told that a new container would be sent out Monday morning. I had it by Tuesday. I'll definitely order from them again.

I've also tried the Giovanni Cool Mint Lemonade. I love it for my feet. I don't find it moisturizing enough for the rest of my skin, but my skin is really dry. I prefer sugar scrubs to salt scrubs.

Got to love the smells of l'occitanes products. I use both the exfoliant and body wash right before going out. This combination coupled with Olay Moisturizing Body Lotion (which is applied after washing) makes the skin very soft and smooth.

I tend to base my skincare purchases on the formulation but sometimes it's hard to when a product smells so good. A few tempting brands come to mind that are loaded with delicious smells including l'occitane, Lush, and Palmers. I really should just stick to body fragrance Razz

I've used a variety of body lotions, Garnier, Dove, Vaseline Intensive, Nivea, they are all nice but now I am looking for more anti ageing for the body!! I am going to try the CP body lotion as I love what CP's do. It's hard though when you are on a budget as most drugstore creams are fine for moisturising but alot of the more expensive ones probably have the better ingredients?

I don't know. I am not too crazy to shop at drugstores, but a french brand called Elancyl is sold there but it's not cheap! Very recently, I bought Olay plus firming and it works! It is a great moisturizer and I feel the tightness, but not in a constricting sticky feeling on the skin. I plan to use it for a month and make sure I apply some on as I go for my walks to help have less jiggle! Laughing

I really love Elancyl body care line.

Which store carries Elancyl? I have never heard of it. I have oily skin yet for some reason store bought lotions tend to leave me dry.

In Canada, it is sold at a drug store called Shoppers Drug Mart.

I think all cellulite serums & creams can dry you out. I alternate with a firming lotion.
Elancyl is my favorite, but for a lower end price, so far, I seem to like Olay Quench plus firming.

My favourite body scrub would be the St Ives Invigorating Scrub. I used it 2-3 times a week in the shower and it leaves me feeling invigorated, and my skin a lot softer. Especially if i'm exhausted or feeling down, a scrub always makes me feel perked up and a lot happier.

I tried the one from BodyShop and some other brands but i didnt like them, as the effect wasnt the same, and they lacked the scrubby effect that i like in St Ives.

Hi Shadow
Can you tell me what the scent is?

OMG I absolutely love these products ! I've asked to get an Almond products gift box from L'Occitane for the past two Christmases... Smile The body exfoliant does make your shower oily after usage, but your skin smells amazing and is fully hydrated. I also used the Almond Milk Concentrate which has the same divine fragrance and is very hydrating without leaving your skin greasy. It also has anti-ageing properties ! I would use it all year long if it wasn't so expensive.

I purchased Sisley cellulite lotion. I haven't tried it yet, but I can't wait to see if this can live up to it's claim!

I heard Elancyl will be discontinued here in Canada. Sad

Loccitane really good, but I prefer to KIEHL 'S Creme de Corps.

I`ve given up buying and wasting money on expensive store stuff. I have such soft skin and my results are from natural, chemical-free solutions.

The best exfoliators for me are a dry body brush, so dry brushing towards the heart as you brush all your body before showering, it improves circulation and lymph drainage which really makes your skin glow.

Then in the shower if I need extra exfoliation, either brown sugar mixed with glycerin or just into my soap, or sea salt if you have oily skin -that`s what the hubby uses.
Post shower I just slather coconut oil on my body, I mix it with lavender oil and sandalwood if I want to be scented and in the summer I add a few drops of omega-7 rich sea buckthorn oil which prevents age-spots. I get lots of compliments on my smooth, glowing body skin.

Plus I am avoiding cancer!!! I discovered many store creams have parabens, fragrance, phthalates and loads of other stuff, you can google it at cosmetics database, they list what ingredients are and how they affect our bodies. Best to go natural as you can to avoid cancer and other nasties!!

"Both the US FDA and American Cancer Society (ACS) independently point out that the study that found parabens in breast tumors does not conclude that parabens caused the tumors. The ACS states, “The study did not show that parabens caused or contributed to breast cancer development in these cases—it only showed that they were there. What this means is not yet clear.”

The FDA writes, “the study did not show that parabens cause cancer, or that they are harmful in any way, and the study did not look at possible paraben levels in normal tissue.”[3]

The FDA may have a vested interest to say that. I would not trust that kind of study. I would choose an independent study conducted by a group of independently funded scientists, that have been studying this for decades. I would choose a study that has been peer-reviewed. There is a an excellent article in the Journal of Applied Toxicology.
`Measurement of paraben concentrations in human breast tissue at serial locations across the breast from axilla to sternum` written by PhDs
L. Barr, G. Metaxas, C. A. J. Harbach2, L. A. Savoy and P. D. Darbre.

a quote from that `The concentrations of five esters of p-hydroxybenzoic acid (parabens) were measured using HPLC-MS/MS at four serial locations across the human breast from axilla to sternum using human breast tissue collected from 40 mastectomies for primary breast cancer in England between 2005 and 2008. One or more paraben esters were quantifiable in 158/160 (99%) of the tissue samples and in 96/160 (60%) all five esters were measured. Variation was notable with respect to individual paraben esters, location within one breast and similar locations in different breasts. .............In view of the disproportionate incidence of breast cancer in the upper outer quadrant, paraben concentrations were compared across the four regions of the breast: n-propylparaben was found at significantly higher levels in the axilla than mid (P = 0.004 Wilcoxon matched pairs) or medial (P = 0.021 Wilcoxon matched pairs) regions`

Hence why I use natural, organic, paraben-free bodycare.

And I applaud your right to choose!

Im just pointing out the fallacy of that study.
Does the American Cancer Society have a vested interest, do you suppose?
