oooh lalicious…

If the Northwest’s monsoony (a.k.a. cold, rainy season) grey, dark days and onslaught of election and economic gloom on both sides of the border, are making you day dream about a few days of r & r in Tahiti, don’t panic. Here’s one of our favourite, carbon friendly ways of bringing a tropical spa home to your bathroom and with it a few moments of pure escapism.
Los Angeles based LaLicious crafts pure cane sugar body scrubs, souffles, body oils and body butters that are on every Hollywood eco-fashionista’s must have list. The line is 100% paraben free, and blended with fruit and flower extracts, vitamin e, almond oil and coconut oil. Kate Hudson is a believer as is Eva Mendes.
Choose from brown sugar + vanilla, passionfruit + lime, island guava, lily+mango, coconut and their latest, Tahitian flower, a delicate and soothing perfume of gardenias.

Ranging in price from US$ 24 for a body butter to $34 for a body souffle, your pocketbook and the environment will both thank you, not to mention your skin.
