I call these products "happy" because they smell so good. Although they all work quite well, this post is primarily about the sensory experience. See my post heavenly hand creams for the real work horses.
Now that I said all that, Bliss Foot Patrol Cream actually is a work horse as well as being a fantastic smellie. It has an invigorating peppermint smell because the menthol in it revives tired and aching feet. It also has alpha hydroxy acids to slough off the dead skin and make your feet silky smooth. The smell and exfoliation combo have always made it my most favorite foot cream.
Back to my sensory smell goods.........
Bliss has another one of my favorite "happy" products. The Bliss High Intensity Hand Cream With Macadamia Oil + Grapeseed Extract smells like lemon. Not quite fresh lemon, and not quite sweet lemon but somewhere in between. I guess like spa lemon. Either way it's absolutely lovely. It takes a little while to absorb, but absorb it does, and is very satisfying in the end.
Bath and Body Works Nourishing Hand Cream truly is nourishing and comes in the most playful fragrances, plus the price is right. I have Vanilla Butter Cream which smells caramely because I like sweet scents, but many of their others are of the floral/fruity variety. They have their old stand-bys and then they have fun seasonal ones too. A couple of their greats this fall are: Sunlight & Apple Trees, or Bright Autumn Day.
Molton Brown is a British luxury brand. Their Replenishing Hand Creams come in a wide variety of the most sensual scents. You can choose from wonderfully hydrating creams such as Gingerlily, Pink Pepperpod, Orange Bergamot, and Desert Bloom. Keeping one of these in your purse is special indeed.
Caudalie Foot Beauty Cream is a French spa brand and the French rule at spa care. No parabens, sulfates, or phthalates and it still smells sensationally refreshing, like orangey citrusy. Again with the spa-citrus smell. People love the non-greasy consistency that makes it a cult favorite.
Which one looks best to you?
