Beauty Find: Diva Sweet Orange And Chocolate Soy Milk Shower Gel
October 29, 2005
Necessity is the mother of invention, so they say. And it was out of necessity that the soy-infused bath and body line, B. Skin, was created. Founder Gillian Downes was diagnosed with dermatitis and, as a result, had to dispose of her existing skincare stash. She then got the bright idea to make her own. Catch is all the products had to be gentle enough not to irritate her skin. I guess it worked because she’s now expanded her line to include shower gels, lotions, body butters and massage oils. They all smell like one of my favorite things: food! (as well as a host of other spices and other yummy scented things). I tried the Sweet Orange And Chocolate Soy Milk Shower Gel. It has a nice lather and makes a good bubble bath, too. And, mmm, it smells so good, thanks to the essential oils. I also like the no-nonsense packaging, which is in stark contrast to some glitzier brands that overpromise and underdeliver. However, the gel left a somewhat oily residue on my washcloth (but luckily not on my skin), probably also due to the essential oils. Small (and worthwhile) sacrifice.
