Carol's Daughter's line of bath and body products as well as hair care items has expanded from a home grown business to a well known brand on store shelves of such beauty havens like Sephora and has even made it to the hands of huge celebs fans! Now in my hands, I have two products to happily review!
Unscented Body Jelly comes in a huge 16oz. jar. A great vegetable alternative to petroleum jelly. Petroleum jelly leaves a thick, greasy coating unlike it's new nemesis, the Body Jelly. This product in contrast has a light weight formula that's absorbed into the skin. As an unscented product, you can be moisturized and layer it with your other body products.
The body jelly felt soothing, but without layering it with a moisturizing soap or something more, my dry skin became thirsty after the duration of a day in cold winter temperatures when it's most problematic. However, I got overwhelming praise from my sister, the mommy -to- be, on the many uses of the body jelly. While pregnancy brings on a host of problems, she's been able to steer clear of too many skin issues. This is great for normal to slightly dry skin. For severe dry skin like mine, especially during winter months, it's a great layering moisturizer and should use frequently to prevent dry out. Try other CD bath products to add moisture for a great skincare regimen!
Yum! Next up is the Mango Melange Shea Souffle. I'm all about tropical scented products, except insanely sweet sun block lotions. When I read that mango, patchouli, vanilla and creamy coconut were involved, I knew I'd be interested. Shea butter is highly moisturizing, so I was excited to have it in the form of a souffle; feels luxurious. This one doesn't just have a 16oz. version, but a 4 oz. as well. I like it as hand lotion and the small jar fits into my purse or work tote.
I'm excited about the line and all the buzz about it. Stay tuned as I have more to let you all know about!
