Two more MUST-HAVE DHC products!

1_Detail

DHC’s Olive Virgin Oil is heavenly. Absolutely adore it. Two pumps of this oil, and you’ll never go back to your old moisturizer! I was skeptical at first, because oils tend to make my skin very oily. And then I gave it a try. At first, it feels oily…..but then it disappears into your skin, and you are left with glorious, soft, silky skin! No oil!

Beauty comes naturally. If you thought you’d never put oil on your skin, think again. Bursting with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, Olive Virgin Oil contains 100% certified organic Flor de Aceite, one of the purest forms of olive oil available. It has a superior ability to moisturize and soften skin and to help you achieve a remarkably healthier complexion. Its unique hydrophilic properties allow it to form a protective moisture barrier against irritants without clogging pores. Warm a couple of drops between your palms, gently press onto your face, and let the revitalization begin.

I’m also really loving DHC’s Olive Body Butter!

Body beautiful. Wrap your skin in a decadent veil of hydration from seven botanicals: shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil. It hydrates and seals in moisture from natural emollients for ultra softness—from your fingers to your toes.

Introducing Olive-Corn Body Scrub and Polish by DHC!

OliveCornBodyScrubAndPolish

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m totally head-over-heels-in-love with DHC. I have used numerous products from them, and haven’t found a single one I haven’t loved! I tried their Olive-Corn Body Scrub & Polish—a botanical-based lathering exfoliant.The scrub consists of two different sized granules made from gentle, non-irritating corn cob powder. The combination leaves your skin healthy, glowing, gorgeous, soft and beautiful!

This decadent all-in-one product provides thorough cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing properties for healthier, smoother-feeling skin from your bath or shower. Ordinary body scrub cleansers can dry out your skin after use, but this polish is formulated with moisturizing olive oil and nourishing vitamin E to leave a silky veil of hydration—even after you rinse. Plus, you’ll love its relaxing natural lavender aroma. What a lovely way to get in some “me” time, relax and achieve a spa-like feeling in the privacy of your own home. It’s a great way to cheer up your mind, soul and body.

The effect olive oil has on your skin is amazing. I love the way my skin feels healthier and more nourished, without being greasy. It really is works wonders!

In the shower or bath, massage lightly over skin. Rinse thoroughly. Use 1—2 times a week. Avoid using on freshly shaved skin.

Cameron Diaz overshares in her new book, ‘The Body Book’

cameron-diaz-lady-biz

Cameron Diaz has written a book. Because WHY NOT. Every other celebrity is doing it. Apparently if you’re mildly successful in Hollywood (okay, you don’t even have to be successful) you apparently have what it takes to write a book. Cameron wrote “The Body Book,” and excerpts from inside are finally making their way online. She devoted an entire section of the book to the nether-region, titled “In Praise of Pubes.”

Radar got the excerpt, and it’s pretty….. revealing.

“I hear that there’s a big fad these days of young women undergoing laser hair removal on all of their lady bits,” Diaz writes. “… Personally, I think permanent laser hair removal sounds like a crazy idea. Forever? I know you may think you’ll be wearing the same style of shoes forever and the same style of jeans forever, but you won’t. The idea that vaginas are preferable in a hairless state is a pretty recent phenomenon, and all fads change, people.”

Then — fair warning — Diaz gets a little graphic. “Pubic hair also serves as a pretty draping that makes it a little mysterious to the one who might be courting your sexiness,” Diaz intones. “Pubes keep the goods private, which can entice a lover to come and take a closer look at what you have to offer. Also, let’s be honest: just like every other part of your body, your labia major is not immune to gravity. Do you really want a hairless vagina for the rest of your life?”

She continues, “It’s a personal decision, but I’m just putting it out there: Consider leaving your vagina fully dressed, ladies. Twenty years from now, you will still want to be presenting it to someone special, and it would be nice to let him or her unwrap it like the gift that it is.”

I am so grossed out with this topic. I guess it’s her book, and she can talk about her labia if she wants to, but I could have gone a lifetime without thinking about what gravity does to a vagina.

mhu-reviews-1215-9

How amazing does Body Softening Oil sound? Pretty amazing, right? Well it IS!

I am obsessed with this Eight Body Softening Oil in Tangerine. If I took a picture of it right NOW it would be about half-way full. It’s amazing. Heaven in a bottle. It absorbs into your skin, without leaving a greasy residue, and soothes you ALL DAY LONG! After showering, I put this on my hands, elbows, legs, everywhere! The smell is divine, and the feeling is spectacular.

Eight Body Softening Oil is a luxurious blend of essential oils, specifically formulated to leave the skin velvety smooth, softened and toned. These essentials bring natural benefits to the skin such as:

Safflower Seed Oil – provides a protective barrier to prevent water from leaving the skin.

Evening Primrose and Avocado Oils – powerful oils that include Vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E, Beta Carotene, Omega 3 and 6.

Soybean and Sunflower Oils – protein rich and contain antioxidants, providing excellent emollient properties.

Wheat Germ – contains fatty acids helping provide structure and elasticity to the skin.

Coconut Oil and Gardenia Flower Extract  – rejuvenates and moisturizing the skin

Eight Body Softening Oil is a silky hydrating oil spray which penetrates quickly. Scented with a light, delicate, slightly citrusy smell of tangerine.

Directions: Spray and massage gently into the skin after bathing or showering. Apply directly onto clean dry skin for a moisturizing “glow”.  Use with any of the Eight Skincare products

Each Eight Skincare product can be used separately; however, to experience the ultimate hydrating treatment, we suggest 1) Dry Brush body  2) Shower and cleanse with Eight Crème Body Wash  3) Exfoliate and soften with Eight Sugar Scrub  4) Lightly towel dry and apply Eight Body Moisture  5) Spray Eight Body Softening oil for a moisturizing “glow”
