Cocoa Cream Solid Lotion

Moisturize anywhere in seconds with the Cocoa Cream Solid Lotion ($7.50) made of cocoa and shea butter, beeswax and therapeutic oils. The solid lotion is made by hand from local ingredients. It easily smoothes the skin, tames split-ends and softens lips after just one application.

The sweat-resistant formula melts with body heat and transforms into a spreadable, long-lasting cream. Cocoa Cream Solid Lotion not only makes skin and hair feel like a million bucks, the 1.75-ounce bar smells and looks incredible too. It has a long-lasting (but not overwhelming) cocoa aroma and features an intricate bee design inspired by one of the lotion’s ingredients, beeswax. And the packaging—an elegant tin case—is just as lovely as the bar itself.

Facial Purifying Bar

Get the soft, glowing skin that can only be achieved by a day at the spa without breaking the bank. Full of organic oils and mild kaolin clay, Milk & Honey Natural’s Facial Purifying Bar ($7.95) is an exfoliant, cleanser and astringent all in one. Instead of three separate washes or a time-consuming facial mask, the Facial Purifying Bar prevents breakouts and smoothes skin in mere moments.

The four-ounce bar is colorless and odorless for a completely clean-feeling experience. Free of detergents, sulfates, phthalates, petrochemicals and parabens, the Facial Purifying Bar will not irritate sensitive skin. Whether you apply it daily or just once a week, clean and soft skin can be yours with this miracle bar.

Creamy Coconut Milk Solid Conditioner

Protect, soften, tone and repair damaged tresses with the Creamy Coconut Milk Solid Conditioner ($10.50). Made with coconut milk sourced from the City Market, chrysanthemum extract, fruit extracts, rose water, and avocado, jojoba and macadamia nut oils, this jack-of-all-trades conditioner packs enough protein for thick, curly hair and is soft enough to work wonders on straight hair.

The solid conditioner rubs right into the hair, and a little of the concentrated formula goes a long way. Purists can rejoice; the bar is pH balanced and is free of SLS, parabens and silicone. Each four-ounce conditioner features a detailed chrysanthemum design and has a light coconut scent.

 

Juliet Amour Solid Parfum

Give way to romance and let your feminine side take over with the Juliet Amour Solid Parfum ($6), inspired by Juliet of the classic Shakespearean tragedy “Romeo and Juliet.” The fresh blend of jasmine, melon and rose creates a delicate, sweet, feminine, clean and all-around beautiful scent. The all-natural parfum is ideal for sensitive skin, and melts into fingers, allowing for direct and precise application.

The parfum creates a long-lasting scent and comes in a gorgeous tin casing. Juliet Amour is part of the Star-Crossed Lovers Collection, a line of scents named after famous literary heroines, including Catherine Earnshaw of “Wuthering Heights” and Layla of the Arabian love story “Layla and Majnun.”

NY Black & White Snickerdoodle

The always-chic black-and-white color combo meets the delightful aromas of a fresh-baked cookie in the NY Black & White Snickerdoodle soap ($5.50). Made with vanilla sugar, sweet butter and cinnamon, this four-ounce bar of soap gently exfoliates and cleanses the hands while coating them with a deliciously irresistible scent. Its all-natural ingredients ensure a texture that is not too hard and not too soft.

And, as added bonus, the cinnamon inside the soap is said to improve circulation. Think of it as a smart little cookie that won’t give you calories. Hungry for more yummy-smelling soaps? We also recommend the Vanilla Hazelnut, Ginger Lime and Sweet Rosemary Orange.
