Sweet Skin Care

"Freezing air. Chapping winds. Whatever winter dishes out, fight dryness with dessert! No mere cream puffs, these finds are effective and indulgent."

Excerpts from a fragrance editorial, Looking Good, in Rachael Ray Every Day magazine's December 2015 issue.

The grown-up answer to sugar plums dancing in your head? Sugared plums softening your skin. The Body Shop Body Butter in Frosted Plum is so yummy, you'll want to binge-apply, yet also so rich, a little goes a long way.

Pamplemousse Rhubarbe

Citrus & Rhubarb
Ask a superstar French pastry chef to dream up body products, which L'Occitane did for the Pierre Herme holiday collection, and you get combos as delish on your skin as in his desserts. Our fave? The Grapefruit Rhubarb Body Lotion.
