organic body care: Giovanni Cosmetics Hydrate Body Lotion
i have found an all natural, good for you (and the senses) body lotion!
Giovanni Cosmetics was started after Arthur Giovanni himself had found success as a leading hair stylist and top salon owner in Beverly Hills, CA. each Giovanni Organic Body Care formula contains a blend of exotic organic oils, ripe-harvested from renewable plants at the peak of their freshness. the oils are cold pressed and refrigerated immediately to ensure maximum purity. their body care line contains 100% vegetarian ingredients and does no animal testing. (Giovanni's line also includes Magnetic hair care and Four Elements Organic hair care products)
i am such a sucker for a good body lotion. i love feeling soft, and occasionally, i'll apply a scented body lotion. it's great for days that are laid back and relaxed (although i rarely get any of those), or i don't want to wear any "formal" perfume.
Giovanni Hydrate Body Lotion in Grapefruit Sky is heavenly...i can't get enough of it. the way it makes my skin feel (not sticky or greasy), the scent (a fruity citrus), and the fact that's natural are all fabulous things. what's even better is now i don't have to worry about harmful ingredients and fillers.
available in 6 scents – Grapefruit Sky, Hazelnut Vanilla, Lavender Vanilla Snow, Raspberry Winter, Bamboo Birch and Cucumber Song. 8.5 oz. (250ml) bottles are $9.95 each. (i found mine at Target)
