How many of you struggle with the winter-spring-summer skin care routine transition? I know we both do, and seeing as we’re both alabaster to the point of see through, we struggle with dryness, sunburns, and the occasional breakout. Solution! We both found different ways of keeping our skin soft, unburnt, and moisturized. My favorite product for every day use is a little miracle called Bee By The Sea Body Moisturizer…which I use on my face! It’s an all natural moisturizer that uses the power of honey and sea buckthorn to give you the glowiest complection out there!
Bee By The Sea Body Cream..you can use it on your face too!
My mum introduced this little gem to me about a year ago, and not only has it helped me even out my skin tone, it’s gotten rid of spots, acne, and it actually prevents breakouts. I just wash my face with baby wipes, then throw on some Bee By The Sea over my face, neck and decolletage. Oh? And did I mention it’s also anti aging? So this French face of mine is going to stay young ( as is tradition in our family), and it’s going to be even. V = 1, World = 0.
As far as my body goes, during the week I stay inside away from the sun, and I like to use baby oil at the end of my shower. I just spread it on, rinse, and then towel off, and it’s like instant silky skin. On the weekends, I’m fairly liberal with the sunscreen seeing as the sun is my enemy, and K’s too. Seriously, we’re really pale.
She isn’t kidding. Picture the creepiest porcelain doll you know. As far as my moisturizing routine goes, I’ve always been a big fan of LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. LUSH is dedicated to making comestics from fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, essential oils (yay!) and safe synthetics.

I use Each Peach(and Two’s a Pair) massage bar (featured below) made with avocado and mango kernel butters, mixed with a cocoa butter and shea butter base. These bars are designed to melt on contact and can be rubbed or massaged into the skin. I use their massage bars after my showers and allow myself time for it to soak in to my skin, or you can pat yourself down with a towel if you’re in a rush – because some might find these greasy. It smells light and citrus-y, which is totally up my alley. There a ton of other bars and scents to choose from! Did I mention that these can be enjoyed with a significant sexy other(s)? Massage parties are the best kinds of parties.
If you’re looking for something a little less messy that you can do at the end of your shower like V – try the Body Butter bars at LUSH. Rub it all over your skin at the end of your shower, rinse off the exfoliating bits and you’re good to go! No moisturizing cream needed.
