clsoapAs you all know we just loooooooooooove Bubble & Bee products.  We’re their #1 fan. Stephanie of Bubble & Bee is so increditbly knowledgeable about chemicals and ingredients that we go right to her first if we ever need an ingredient scrutinized.  Her products, as a result of her knowledge, are so pure and safe I hate using anything else. 

Years ago before I learned about skin care and the hazards of all the chemicals I was dumping into my body every day I was a Bath & Body Works Junkie.  I admit it.  You walk in there and everything looks so tempting and relaxing.  I owned almost the entire True Blue line and always stocked up on my favorite scent: Coconut Lime Verbena.  When I learned more about the ingredients, I sadly tossed all my BBW products and searched for safer ones.  I never did find a good replacement to my beloved Coconut Lime Verbena… until NOW.

COCONUT-&-LIME--SMALL-PICThanks to Stephanie’s constant product development, she has added a lovely Organic Coconut Lime Soap to her collection as well as a Coconut Lime LIP BALM.  Its as if she read my mind.  I loved her Coconut Lime lotion stick already and wished there were more.  And now there is.  Her soap smells devine and lathers wonderfully.  I feel so tropical after a shower.  And I can keep the feeling all day with her delictable Coconut Lime lip balm… which if you have ever tried her lip balms, they rock.  This one is no exception.  It’s my new favorite lip balm flavor (and you know how much I adore my lip balms) and I want to hug it and squeeze it call it George.  Ok no but I do carry it everywhere.  It even tastes sweet!

Get Some! Thanks Stephanie for all your great products and new scents!  Shop for Bubble & Bee products on her website!  Don’t forget to visit her Chemical of the Day Blog where she answers reader questions about ingredients.

birchI was gifted a very generous gift certificate to for my birthday this year.  So I went on a spree and got a bunch of products I havent tried before.  One of those was Weleda’s Birch Body Scrub.  With descriptive words like “exfoliation” and “regeneration” I decided to give it a go on my dry legs.  Let me just say that I am big on scrubs, which is weird for someone with such sensitive skin.  I love a good scrub, and usually prefer sugar scrubs to salt.  That said, I don’t mind them being a bit coarse so I feel like I’m doing something productive.

Weleda’s Birch Body Scrub falls a little short in that area.  It’s super gentle and very moisturizing, while having a really nice fresh scent.  I like the product as a body wash, not a scrub.  There isn’t enough “scrub” in there to make me feel like I’m getting anywhere so I was a little disappointed in that.  But, as a moisturizing wash this product does great.  I love the smell and I LOVE that it’s in a squeeze tube rather than a tub that you have to scoop out of.  In general I am a big Weleda fan since they use natural ingredients and are free of all the nasty junk we typically avoid.  If you have really sensitive skin this might be a great scrub for you.

Get It: You can pick it up anywhere Weleda products are sold or grab it online at
