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.
