King of Skin

Lush moisture bomb aka Lush King of Skin


The thing about some things is that they fill a niche that you didn’t even know was inadequate or simply not working. I use oil, sesame, jojoba or grapeseed to moisturize post shower, but it can be costly, and just plain boring. Enter the Lush moisture bomb, or Lush’s King of Skin. It’s about the size of a halved apple and contains the most amazing ingredients for moisturizing which include “supremely moisturizing fresh bananas and avocados,” which are “whipped into a luxurious, skin soothing base of oat milk and lavender.” Read More

Hearts of Palm

Earth Therapeutics Purest Palm Body Brush


More info HERE

I bought this brush a while ago, and it sat sad in a corner, until this morning. I was in need of a shower pick me up, and this was exactly it. The brush itself can be used both in the shower and for dry brushing, but I use this for the shower, I have a separate one for dry brushing. More on dry brushing later.

Nevertheless, I really like to have a clean back, but its hard to find a good body brush that will reach there without having to contort yourself into a yoga pose. Saved by the Palm Brush. The Palm is my new favorite because all of my previous body brushes were so unsightly, bright pinks and aquas that seemed more at home in a communal dorm room shower, not in my mid-century furnished apartment.

Its also slightly smaller than other body brushes, which is nice too, because I don’t feel like I have a baton in my shower ready to be used to defend against intruders. Even though the Palm looks like it would hurt, and even though it looks like a torture device from 1347, once its wet its really nice and soft and feels super ‘massage-y.’

This is definitely something I am going to replace once is molds or dies in my shower by perhaps meeting the same fate at my last body brush, which was doused with Raid to kill a giant silver fish that made its home on my brand new super luxe bar of soap, sad. Anyway, I found mine at Whole Foods, but you can find it online at Amazon. If you struggle with Backne (worst word ever!), might I suggest pairing this with Neutrogena Clear Body Wash. Nothing works better, literally nothing. Except for this Clinique Body Spray that was discontinued, that worked like a charm and removed a step from my shower routine, saving me two minutes, which I would later use when I inevitably changed my mind about my outfit and put on the first thing I tried on.
