In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Boscia NEW Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel

Fact about me you didn’t know? I get realllllly excited about a good cleanser! Especially good oil cleansers that deeply cleanse without stripping the skin of vital oils and moisture. Add in some anti aging, antioxidant-rich ingredients and I’m in hog heaven. Well, bath heaven, but I digress.

That’s why Boscia Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel ($28)  just tickles me pink. (See, because it ALSO comes in a pink bottle – wink, wink).

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Boscia NEW Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel ($28)

This antioxidant-packed cleansing oil-gel removes those pesky impurities and makeup remnants while protecting the skin’s moisture barrier. And the best part? We’re left with smoother, softer, baby-soft skin.

Ideal for all skin types, the tsubaki (camellia oil) botanical blend firms, hydrates and protects against free radical damage and increases collagen while the Wakame (Japanese Sea Kelp) prevents fine lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness by replenishing protein. That Wakame is good stuff as it also helps to even out melanin thus improving skin tone. And we can’t forget the Rice Bran Oil! Used in Asia for centuries, this antioxidant-rich oil helps to prevent premature aging by providing essential nutrients. Um, yes please!

And application is piece of (pink, of course) cake! Just apply 1 – 2 pumps to damp skin and massage gently in a circular motion. Rinse clean with warm water. And you’re done.

So get a little passionate about your cleanser like me and put a little pink into your life!

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Pur-lisse Pur-Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser & Makeup Remover

I am a big fan of the VIP box from FabFitFun that I receive seasonally on my doorstep…but more on that later.

For now, I want to introduce you to what’s in my tub this Tuesday:

Pur-lisse Pur-Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser ($36)

The reason I mentioned the FabFitFun VIP box is because I received this scrumptious cleanser for sensitive skin in my summertime FabFitFun VIP box!

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Pur-lisse Pur-Delicate Gently Soy Milk Cleanser & Makeup Remover

I mean, listen, as sensitive as I might be as a person, my skin is even more sensitive. That’s why many times so-called “sensitive” cleansers let me down.
But not this one. No way.

With its blue lotus, white tea, soy proteins, sea silk and lupine peptides, my skin is gently cleansed by its milk gel formula. It washes away dirt, makeup and the effects of the day and leaves my skin clean without feeling stripped or irritated. Plus, it feels like it’s actually soothing my skin which is just what us sensitive girls need at the end of a long day or first thing in the morning.

Honestly, I was surprised by how much I loved this cleanser as my skin felt soft, supple and silky…and, dare I say, SEXY!!!

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Neutrogena Rainbath Refreshing Shower & Bath Gel

Good morning -er – afternoon, I mean!

Sorry for the late post today, guys!

I have been lacking energy all day long.

After taking my vitamins, drinking some tea, working out and even going to get a B-12 shot, I finally decided to hop into a mid-afternoon shower and get my dependable wakeup call!

That’s why today’s In-My-Tub-Tuesday is a thank you letter to Neutrogena Rainbath Refreshing Shower & Bath Gel ($7.99 – $26.99, depending on size).

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Neutrogena Rainbath Shower & Bath Gel - my wakeup call!

With its aromatic array of citrus, herbs and spices, this amber-hued shower gel helps me get up & go. And man, oh, man did I need that today!

I get out of the shower refreshed, ready to go, cleansed and moisturized without a hint of residue.

When guests use it at my house, they swear it lulls them to sleep, but for me – it’s all about the pure energy it brings into my world.
And on a day like today, that’s just what the doctor ordered. So thanks, Neutrogena! This girl needed a little pick-me-up!



BF Asks: Have you tried Neutrogena Rainbath Refreshing Shower & Bath Gel?




In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash

I’m sorry to repeat myself when I say that Dermalogica products smell like the spa…

but Dermalogica products SMELL LIKE & make me feel like I’m AT THE SPA!!!

And THAT is a very good thing!!

With soothing fragrant oils of sandalwood, lavender, orange and clary sage I am left feeling like I’m at the spa whenever I take a bath before bed and cleanse with Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash ($26).


In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash

These relaxing fragrances ready me for a deep, peaceful slumber. And the essential oils of tea tree, lemon, eucalyptus and rosemary gently purify the skin without stripping it of its natural moisturizers. This botanical cleanser is not only rich and skin-conditioning but is also soap-free!

Ideal for those with sensitive and/or dry skin, you’ll feel clean without feeling stripped and relaxed without spending a fortune!

Really, it’s a win-win!

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: DDF Glycolic Wash


Who really loves to clean their face?
Not I said the fly.
But it’s a necessary evil. Like brushing your teeth.
One that will perhaps keep us from looking so evil later in life.
And one that I never, never miss before I head to bed.

DDF Glycolic Wash ($28)

So what makes this necessary evil more enjoyable?
When I find a cleanser that multitasks for me!
DDF Glycolic Wash is a cleansing, anti-aging, restorative and renewing quadruple threat!
It deep cleanses with 5% glycolic acid, purifying the pores and minimizing the appearance of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
The perfect ph-balanced pairing of the glycolic acid and choice skin conditioners make for a blissful marriage for your skin.
Even for the most sensitive of skin, like yours truly, it won’t strip, dry or dehydrate.
It just feels goooooood!
And your skin will just be left feeling cleaner, younger, glowing and ravishingly radiant!

BF Asks: What scent reminds you of summer?

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil

Argan oil is one of the most highly praised oils – and for good reason.

It works wonders!

Hence, I was excited to try Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil.

Josie Maran Cleansing Oil ($32)

In My Tub Today Right Now: Josie Maran Cleansing Oil ($32)

My first step into the jolie world of Josie was the perfect choice to try.

She’s a successful model and businesswoman whom I admire, and, of all ingredients on earth she could use, she chose to include Argan in her skincare and makeup products.

I started using it last week and fell in love. With a natural scent that reminds me slightly of Baby Tylenol (I LOOOOVE that smell, by the way), it does what it promises to do.

This 3-in-1 miracle cleanser gently removes makeup, cleans, purifies and moisturizes with its amazing anti-aging properties.

And bonus! It also removes those stubborn impurities that stay with us over time.

Say goodbye to those and hello to clean, glowing, moisturized skin!

Argan Oil is known to restore the natural moisture set-point and pH balance in the skin. How? By nourishing skin cells by replenishing essential fatty acids. I know fatty doesn’t sound beautiful but we LOOOOVE fatty acids!

Aside from Argan oil, this supple oil cleanser is derived from amazing almond, sensuous safflower seed and gorgeous grape seed oil. Additionally, the anti-aging/age-defying antioxidants don’t just cleanse the skin’s surface, but give new life to every layer of the skin.

I know what you’re thinking.
An oil to clean? Won’t I be greasy?

Enter BF’s resounding “NOOOOO!” here.

Quite the contrary, my dear.

The non-greasy texture leaves skin feeling moisturized, never tight or dry.

Just supple, beautiful and GLOWING.
And we loooove to glow!

Another little fact I love about it?

As you rub your hands together, the oil gently “heats up” creating a soothing warmth as you apply it on the skin. You feel it working and you like it!

Well, I like it. No, I LOVE IT!

I like to know my skincare is doing something. And yes, Virginia, even my cleanser.

As I step out of the tub with my skin feeling pampered like a princess, my face all glowing and gorgeous, I also give myself a little high-5 in the mirror for aging as gracefully as possible just by washing my face.
