Heaven in a tube!


I have been dreaming of traveling back to Hawaii or anywhere tropical for that matter but my pocket book tells me a trip  the Hawaiian decoration isle in Party City is more in my budget. Well thank you Lavanila for giving me a few minutes of pure tropical bliss in the morning.

To be honest I am amazed by how great their new Healthy Body Wash 2 in 1 in Vanilla Coconut smells. On top of a blissful scent the body wash is great and its so moisturizing I love using it to shave.

Lavanila Laboratories is pleased to announce its latest launch: the Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 Shower & Shave. A multi-tasking formula for gentle cleansing and silky-smooth shaving, this new formula offers a luxurious natural lather while creating a soothing barrier for a close, non-irritating shave.

Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 Shower & Shave ($14) – Packed with nourishing ingredients that promote healthy skin, this non-irritating time-saver soothes, cleans, and moisturizes. While traditional washes and shave creams are made with sulfates and other harsh detergents that can irritate sensitive skin, Lavanila’s all-natural, chemical-free formula is packed with a daily dose of anti-oxidants and vitamins that promote calm, healthy, super soft skin.

Key Ingredients include:
· Coconut Oil works as a natural anti-bacterial agent to keep skin clean without stripping it of essential moisture.
· Organic Rose Hip Oil is a superb tissue hydrator that penetrates instantly for a luxurious cushion that delivers a close, non- irritating shave.
· Organic Aloe leaves skin feeling soft and supple.
· Calendula penetrates skin’s surface to hydrate and soothe for soft, touchable skin.
· NO: Petrochemicals, Phthalates, Propylene glycol, Mineral oils, Silicone, Synthetic dyes, Parabens, Harsh detergents or sulfates

THE SCENTS
· Vanilla Passion Fruit: Passion fruit and fresh peach nectar impart a magnetic allure.
· Vanilla Lavender: Spanish lavender fuses with soft vanilla for a clean, fresh aroma.
· Pure Vanilla: Warm vanilla and soft freesia petals offer a feminine whisper of fragrance.
· Vanilla Grapefruit: Crisp grapefruit and lime awaken the senses.
· Vanilla Coconut: Tropical coconut and bright tiare flower evoke an exotic escape.

Disclosure: A complimentary sample was sent to me for an honest review.
