90% of the time, I focus on products for the face. I don’t know why but I always think of experimenting with new body products last. And then I find really great ones and realize that I am missing out by not trying more. These are two products I’ve recently had sent to me that I enjoyed immensely so of course I had to write about them. First Aid Beauty is not a new brand to me, but every time I try one of their products, it’s as if I just discovered the brand because I am always blown away. I am not as familiar with Yes To Coconuts, but after my experience with the face wipes (see my video here), I had a sneaking suspicion this would be a body lotion worth fawning over. Annnnd, I was right. As always. *pats self on back*
1. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Wash – Anything in the Ultra Repair line from First Aid Beauty is bound to be heaven on the skin. The cult classic Ultra Repair Cream is by far one of the richest and most healing creams I own. And this body wash takes the best aspects of that cream and brings it to the shower. It’s quite thick, and doesn’t lather too much, but it does give a creamy, moisturizing, almost balm-like experience when washing. Those with overly dry, sensitive or irritated skin will probably be buying this in bulk – it’s that good.
2. Yes to Coconuts Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion – All those too lazy to rub their lotion in, raise your hand. *raises hand* I was ecstatic when I heard this was a spray, and knew I would get more use out of it immediately. Ridiculously easy (and awesome) application aside, the formula is what really matters. Easy and fun means nothing if what’s inside is awful. Luckily, this does not fall into the category and the Yes To Coconuts Body Lotion quickly became one of my most used body lotions this summer. Lightweight, easily absorbed and with a scent like coconut, what’s not to love? I put mine in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before I apply and it becomes both a lotion and hydrating mist at the same time.

Outside of trying to deal with any stubborn breakouts, the number one result I am constantly in search of is radiance. Obviously a serious peel or intense
