Argan & Olive Nourishing 2-In-1 Body Scrub Exfoliating the body weekly is a must to keep skin fresh and young, and adding moisturizer to it during exfoliation replenishes the new fresh layer of skin at the same time. As an owner of a number of various Shea Terra skin care products, the body scrub makes me happiest. First, it’s a green minty goo that makes me want to take a bite of it, and hopefully my skin feels the same way. It’s a 99.7% natural, 85% organic scrub and cream in one jam-looking jar. It is thick and dense, yet soft and gooey.

Organic Coconut Oil, Barlean's

Coconut oil is the new thing right now, mostly coming around thanks to word of mouth. I first heard about it from a guy friend. To my question on what made him look 5 years younger, with excitement he told me it’s all about the coconut oil, which he proudly puts almost everywhere. I decided to have my own experiment and bought a jar from CVS. It’s easy to confuse coconut oil made for cooking with one that is for hair and skin, as the jars look alike. As oil should be, this one is greasy and goes everywhere, so I recommend wearing long sleeve PJs to bed; otherwise there may be stains on the sheets. Make sure the smell of coconut is for you, as there is no escape from it. After weeks of using it I can say my skin is more silky and glowing. I will continue this experiment, as so far results have been pleasant.

Resveratrol Pinot Noir Phyto Mask, Vine-Vera

I love clear, fast absorbing leave-in masks. First, there’s no fear someone might see you and never be able to look at you the same way again. Second, you don’t have to remember to wash it off, which would forget to do anyway and end up ruining a potential lifelong friendship. So essentially it’s a power cream used just once a week. Resveratrol, the main compound of this mask, is a polyphenol, an antioxidant found in red grapes. Applied topically resveratrol is also effective and, in combination with aloe vera, this phyto mask promises a lasting anti-aging effect.

Grapefruit Shampoo And Conditioner, Theorie

As a beauty columnist, I’ve tried hundreds of natural, organic, chemical free and so on…shampoos and conditioners. I have to say that the greatness and benefits of natural skin and hair care products and long-term health preserving affects of all of them aren’t visible when we just want our hair to shine. Theorie is the first non-synthetic shampoo and conditioner that visibly worked like the chemical brands we see on TV without causing the long term damage we hear about so much. I was impressed with Theorie and so to save you money and straw-like hair that a horse could eat thought I’d share this.

Dry Skin Hand Cream, L'Occitane

My favorite thing about this hand cream is that it smells of something that gives me déjà vu to when I was little and my grandmother used some kind of hand cream every night, as her lifestyle as a stay-at-home mom was an immense distinction from the way we do things now. For example, she washed dishes and did laundry every single night with bare hands: an aging disaster. So every night I would see her vigorously applying some kind of cream that had the exact same scent as L’Occitane, which leads me to believe that this cream has compounds that have been proven over a very long period of time.
