Have dry, itchy winter skin? Let the Whish Three Wishes Sugar Scrub help you buff your way to soft, smooth skin in one shower. I am a fan of Whish  they have so many great bath and body products that smell great and work even better. Their Three Wishes Sugar Scrub does not disappoint.

Three Wishes sugar scrub features a moisturizing base of organic beeswax and shea butter., whipped to become a soft solid.  Brown sugar, raspberry seed, and bamboo powder do the heavy lifting, to exfoliate, while organic shea butter, organic, antioxidant raspberry butter and organic aloe moisturize, and Vitamin E extract, and organic avocado oil, renew your skin. I just scoop out a small amount and the product is thick and stays right where I need it without getting runny. The scrub has just the right amount of grit to buff my skin without irritating. I love how emollient the product is, my skin felt incredibly soft and smooth after just the first use. The Whish sugar scrubs use essential oils so their products smell amazing and are  natural and organic..

EOS-Blueberry-Acai-Smooth-Sphere-Lip-Balm

I am hooked on the eos lip balms. I love how the shape is easy to find in my purse no matter how packed I have it. The balm feels so great on my lips, especially in this cold winter weather. The new Blueberry Acai balm smells and heck tastes delicious. It has a great blueberry scent with a hint of acai. It tastes like a summer cocktail and is definitely one my favorite eos balms.

eos Blueberry Acai Smooth Sphere $3.29
The eos Blueberry Acai Smooth Sphere is a must have for moms-to-be to keep their lips smooth and moisturized.  It has the delicious flavor of blueberries with the same love, delight and moisturization you always get from eos. This revolutionary smooth sphere applies directly on lips, so it’s more hygienic than pot lip balms. The lip balm not only tastes good, it includes anti-oxidant filled blueberry and acai berry extracts to keep you smiling.
