c. Booth Blackberry In-Bath Body Conditioner - 177ml - $8.99 - offers deliciously scented, deep conditioning for the skin with blackberry seed oil - with lots of antioxidants including multiple forms of vitamin E & C, tocopherols, tocotrienols and a variety of carotinoids to add suppleness to the skin and provide anti-aging and moisturizing benefits; coconut oil - provides deep and real moisture while strengthening the underlying tissues and helps remove dead cells on the skin's surface; shea butter - helps improve skin elasticity, tone and maintain skin hydration; and sweet almond oil - with essential fatty acids that provide intense skin hydration.

It's easy to use, just apply to wet skin while still under the shower and rinse off, like hair conditioner for the skin - but the best part is you can dry off and get dressed right after stepping out of the shower - no more waiting for lotion to absorb before getting ready - just be sure to pat skin dry, don't rub!

High levels of glycerin and oils work to trap in the moisture from the shower, leaving skin soft and luminous.

This week I'm obsessed with... Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic Body Mist!

I don't know about you but on these super-hot days I've been known to skip body moisturizer altogether because it just ends up feeling so heavy and sticky - like it's sitting on top of my skin and clogging all my pores... which is dumb because when it's this hot my poor, parched skin needs moisture more then ever so I was thrilled to discover: 

Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic Body Mist - 150ml - $20 - a light and refreshing mist that absorbs instantly and  hydrates below and on the surface of the skin with a low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid in a base of purified mushroom, tamarind and corn derivatives. The next-generation, non-aerosol continuous mist provides for easy body coverage to deliver immediate and longer-term hydration.

Available at Shoppers Drug Mart and online at www.deciem.com.
