Rachel Rene

Awhile back, I bought a wide assortment of bath & body products from Rachel Rene. Included in this assortment was handmade soap, lip butter, body mousse, bath bombs, a lotion bar, and a brown sugar scrub.

The first thing I tried was the lip butter in Cucumber Melon. Her lip balm is to die for! It has to be one of the smoothest, creamiest lip balms I've ever used. And I'm a lip balm addict - I've tried just about every lip balm out there! And it's so pocketbook friendly.

The next thing I went for was the body mousse. It is delightful, as well. It looks like it's going to be heavy, but it's not! It's light as air, yet incredibly rich & moisturizing. I think it's perfect for summer.

For those rough spots that need a little more attention, check out the lotion bars. In all my years of buying fancy-schmancy beauty products (more than I care to admit), I'd never seen one of these! It's like lip balm for your body. I love it for my elbows & my feet in sandal weather when I'm between pedicures.

I've used scrubs my whole life - even when I was a kid. I don't know what it is, but there's just something about the texture & scooping it out of the jar that I love. However, I'd never used a brown sugar scrub. The texture is so fine that it gives a soft scrubbing, if that makes any sense. It makes me feel like I could use it every day, although I will not.

For those times when you need an extra bit of indulgence, try one of the bath bombs. It's at least as pampering as the giant bombs you get from some of the big companies.

If you're in the market for some high end b&b products that tread easily on the budget, check out Rachel Rene. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
