I love catalogs because you can shop without putting on makeup or even getting out of your pj’s!
I can even order things that will hopefully make me more beautiful when I do decide to head out the door. Beauty begins with the body and the mind. If you feel well, and you take care of yourself, you will look fantastic, so take a look at all of these great options for pampering the one and only you.
Here are my favorite exotic bath and body products:
Pure oil for pure healing
For thousands of years, the Australian aborigines used emu oil for almost every skin problem. From keeping skin hydrated to keeping the itchy, burning effects of eczema and psoriasis at bay, emu oil has been the choice to help generate healing and comfort.
Look for Emu products that are certified by the American Emu Association, a third party that guarantees the purity of their oil in a world where many emu oils are cut with other, less expensive, oils. Check out Emu Oil and Goat Milk Soap for touchy skin. The coconut oil mixed with the emu oil renders a sudsy, comfortable soap for people with a variety of skin sensitivity issues.
Bath Product Stores
Lavender and other scents
A boutique bath product store promises luxury and integrity, high quality, and exotic bath and body products they make you not only feel and smell good, but are good for you. Deep Steep Foaming Hand Wash fits the category quite well with its rich lather derived from highly humectant glycerin combined with organic extracts and rice protein, all of it gluten free. The result is a luxurious hand wash that helps your skin retain moisture. It comes in yummy scents of lavender chamomile, honeydew spearmint and grapefruit bergamot.
Crabtree & Evelyn
When was the last time you took a bubble bath? Crabtree & Evelyn’s Avocado Oil and Basil Shower and Bath gel is just one of their indulgent choices to treat your senses to the soothing scent of botanicals and essential oils. Each of their exotic bath and body products works as a rich body wash in the shower, or offers piles of relaxing bubbles in the bath.
The very best brands
Beauty Bridge combines a number of different exotic bath and body products in one place. They originally began as a full-service storefront in New Jersey where they offered their customers hard-to-find products as well as the best products available. They have evolved to be able to offer over 150,000 products from highly reputable brands. Choose a luxuriously scented talcum powder or a body scrub with botanical buffing beads from Peter Thomas Roth. You will find it all here and your body will thank you for taking such good care of it!
My Spa Shop
Turn your bath into an exotic get-away
Take one ordinary bathtub. Add some the exotic luxuries from My Spa Shop, like fine bath salts made from skin-purifying sea salts, or ginger and cranberry bath nectars that release their soothing scent in warm water. Finish your bath experience with a skin-rejuvenating body oil, made from pure, organic ingredients, then wrap yourself in an organic spa towel. Ahhhh!
As We Change
Delightful body scrubs
This is an interesting idea that was launched by three women from San Diego. They were starting to experience midlife changes and realized there was a need to information and products to make the normal changes associated with the aging process more manageable. They started As We Change, which has all types of products that deal with all aspects this time in a woman’s life from nutritional issues, personal care, exercise and skin care. One of the helpful skin care products they have is the Spa Sonic Skin Care System. This battery-operated scrubber helps clean and care for the skin with seven of helpful attachments that scrub, buff and help tone not just the face, but knees, elbows and heels, too. Use it to buff callouses on your heels and then cleanse your face with a different attachment.
There is nothing exotic about exotic bath and body products, but there are many products that can be called exotic simply by being new to you. Try some of these exotic-sounding products and you will discover they are no longer exotic, but indulgences you cannot live without. From scented bubbles to scrubbing botanical products, your body will thank you while your mood soars with those bubbles to the clouds.
