The ingredient list for this product reads as follows: Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum) , Water , Beeswax (Apis Mellifera) , Magnesium Aluminium Silicate , Sodium Borate , Fragrance , Isopropyl Myristate , DMDM Hydantoin , Red 4 you would be better off just using vaseline which is basically what this product is.
This is a decent body butter but may not provide adequate moisturization for people with super dry skin especially during the winter months.
Gels/Soaps -Yes To Carrots - C How to Shower Carrot Rich Shower Gel

One of the better YTC products this gel lathers nicely and does not dry out my skin. The smell is so-so but I moisturize with scented products afterwards so it doesn't bother me. I do like the fact that it is paraben free and contains mostly natural ingredients. I think the size of gel for the price is excellent--especially if you can find it on sale.
Scrubs -Yes To Carrots - C the Body Carrot Rich Moisturizing Body Scrub
Phynesse 1/17/2010 3:20:00 PM
I purchased a YTC gift set during the after Christmas sales and the scrub was part of the set. I have used it a couple times and find that I have to mix it with equal parts of my St. Ives scrub to get the best result. The YTC scrub has very little exfoliant in it--however it is moisturizing and balances out the St. Ives scrub very well. I probably would not purchase again as I feel there are much better scrubs available.
Lotions/ Creams -Carol's Daughter - Peppermint Foot Lotion
Phynesse 9/28/2009 10:24:00 PM
First let me say I have much love for CD products. However this foot lotion just comes up short in every way. First the scent of peppermint is hardly detectable at all which is something that you want in a foot lotion. Second the packaging is not convenient for a foot lotion--once you apply and your hands a greasy the flip top style makes it very difficult to hold the bottle upside down to get more product out--a pump would be much more efficient. The lotion itself is not too bad at moisturizing--however for the price which is over $10.00 for a 4oz bottle there are much better options elsewhere.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control
Phynesse 1/9/2009 9:55:00 PM
I purchased this product specifically to use as a body scrub--not a facial scrub. As a body scrub it is excellent at exfoliating, cleaning pores and smoothing my skin. It rinses clean and leaves my skin very absorbent after use. This product is excellent to use on rough skin--knees & elbows.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Energizing Sugar Body Scrub-Fresh Citrus
Phynesse 12/8/2008 8:30:00 PM
I purchased this product before I read the reviews so I was a bit aprehensive about using it after reading the negative reviews on here. I rubbed the scrub onto my dry skin using a damp washcloth and using circular motions. I then jumped into the shower and washed using a exfoliator and my usual shower gel. The scrub does leave a film, the sugar does not last long and is slippery but it reduced my dry flaking skin significantly. I would repurchase but only if it was on sale.
Skincare - Body -Bath and Body Works - Savannah Bee Company Hand and Nail Salve
Phynesse 11/8/2007 7:53:00 PM
One of the better lines in B&BW. I purchased during the summer 1/2 price sales and paid $4.50 for the tin which is usually $9.00. Now that I have tried it--I would pay full price for it in the future. The salve is great for feet, and nails. I apply it on my feet at night and cover with socks then massage the rest into my nails--it is an extremely effective cuticle and nail moisturizer. I think the beeswax makes the difference between this product being fantastic & mediocre. I have used similar products minus the beeswax such as Burt Bees and had poor results. This is a wonderful product that really produces results for dry cracked nails and skin.
A great little shower gel! I purchased for the first time during the BBW 1/2 price sale in the summer--I decided to go with the smaller size just in case I didn't like it but I was pleasantly surprised. Scent reminds me of Orange Blossoms. It is a non drying gel and it left my skin quite soft. I will stock up again during the after Christmas sale.
I purchased this during the annual BBW sale so I paid 1/2 price for a small container. Although it smells great, the granules (sugar) are IMHO too large to work into the skin and basically most of the product ends up on the bathtub floor. Another not so great quality is the roughness of the granuels--it felt like I was scraping my skin while using it--definitely not a good feeling.
I love the Breeze, the strips are kindy yucky when wet but I get the smoothest shave, no stubble no nicks! Although it comes with moisturizing strips I still use shave cream--maybe that is why I get smoother results. My only gripe about this product is that the replacment blades are too expensive--it's cheaper just to buy a new razor and get the extra blade that comes with it. They need to come down on the price of the replacement blades.
Skincare - Body -Alba Botanica - Moisturizing Cream Shave in Mango Vanilla
Phynesse 10/15/2007 7:18:00 PM
I bought this only because it came in a travel size and was $1.99 at Whole Foods. I was impressed when I used it along with my Venus Breeze razor..my legs were the smoothest the have ever been after shaving. I have since and will continue to purchase.
I am very sensitive to perfume yet I can wear Light Blue with no ill effects, no sneezing! The scent is very light and citrus like--and a little goes a long way. I have been using it since Jan of this year and still have almost a full bottle left. A great light everyday fragrance that is not overpowering.
Great cleanser, doesn't dry out the skin however doesn't deep clean it either. Like the Weleda Almond cleanser I usually have to add a dab of an exfoliant cleanser and use a damp cotton pad for it to totally clean my face. This cleanser seems to work well for me. I would purchase again but only on sale.
This body butter is the most delicious smelling product I have ever used. I am never disappointed with C&E products you truly do get what you pay for. I would recommend this body butter to be better than L'Occitane which is slightly costlier. Other than the divine smell--a cross between a sweet mango and citrusy grapefruit- it is extremely rich and has high moisturizing properties. The ingredients are natural as well, no mineral oils or petroleum. If you have to splurge on only one body moisturizer this product is well worth it.
