Beauty Bargain: Ciao Bella
May 16, 2007
Why: Everyone knows yogurt is a good friend to have when youâ€™re trying to fit into that itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikini. What has recently been brought to my attention is the fact that natural yogurt extracts are as good for your skin, as yogurt is for your waistline. Before you start slathering your lunch on your face, acquaint yourself with Cleo, an extremely affordable, new Italian import. Available in several yogurt-inspired scents, the line ranges in price from $1.56 for a bar of soap, up to $6.36 for an extremely generous serving of Bathfoam (a.k.a. bubble bath).
Iâ€™ve long felt that cherry is an underutilized scent, so Iâ€™m especially loving the Red Fruits Shower Cream ($3.96) and the Cherry Body Cream($6.36). The shower cream is thick and frothy, but washes really clean, and the body cream is extremely moisturizing without leaving me as sick as a slick as slice of pizza. Iâ€™m left with a subtle, lingering scent of cherry, and silky smooth skin.
If only someone could figure out a way to make eating yogurt half as enticing.
Price: $1.56 – $6.36
