New lotions and potions are being launched every single day. How do you choose a new one? For starters, you can pick a brand you already know and like. Here are some exciting new skincare products (and a couple of classics) from some of our favorite brands:
Classic Skincare Moisturizers By Phytomer:
Oligomer Well-Being Sensation Strengthening Moisturizing Body Cream:
Phytomer’s Oligomer Well-Being Sensation Strengthening Moisturizing Body Cream ($67/ 5 fl. oz.) in a white flip top tube is elegant. It melts into your skin offering an instant silkening feeling, along with powerful hydration.
Along with Phytomer’s exclusive active ingredient, Oligomer Liquid , it features Pheohydrane, a complex combination of a micro-algae extract, amino acids, marine sugars, and remineralizing sea-water concentrate to hydrate the skin and prevent water loss.
It’s the fresh slightly floral scent that makes me feel happier, somehow. Maybe that’s why Phytomer calls it “well-being sensation.” I call it, sensational!
Phytomer Micellar Water:
Sometimes it’s just a hassle to wash off makeup, especially if it’s longwear. Micellar water is the quickest way to remove dirt, sweat, and even longwear lipstick and mascara
Phytomer’s Micellar Water ($43/ 5 fl, oz.) (on the right in the photo above) has a slight scent of rose thanks to rose flower water. But it is a power cleanser with alpha hydroxy acids, antioxidants, Vitamin E and caster oil.
Pour some onto a cotton pad, press against the skin for a few seconds, and watch the magic happen as it wipes your skin fresh and clean.
Micelles in the formula work to attract impurities and makeup and break them, and the formula won’t dry out your skin or pull your lashes when trying to scrub off that waterproof mascara.
You can use it anywhere because it’s a no-rinse formula. Phytomer’s formula makes it easy and non-irritating to get the job done quickly, easily, and perfectly!
Two New Body Milks from Fleur’s
Fleur’s Aromavedic Body Milk to Oil:
When it comes to Fleur’s luxury spa-style products, botanicals make these products super-special.
The bright, fruity scent of apricot and vanilla in Fleur’s Aromavedic Body Milk to Oil ($50.50/ 8.4 fl. oz.) makes me feel that all is well in the world.
As I massaged it into my dry skin the apricot kernel oil instantly nourished and soothed my skin.
Don’t let the word “oil” deter you from treating yourself to this amazing body milk, It isn’t greasy, sticky and really makes skin feel soft and hydrated in a flash while providing a bit of delight to your senses.
Try it and you’ll fall in love with it.
Fleur’s Passionflower Moisturizing Body Milk:
Fleur’s Passionflower Moisturizing Body Milk retail: $48.0/8.4 fl. oz.) is a pearly lotion with the swoon-worthy scent of light, refreshing, white gardenia.
The luxurious lotion absorbs into your skin, hydrating it But “Natures Lifting Floral Bouquet,” a blend of four rare flowers, work together to firm skin and stimulate collagen production.
I can’t think of many better ways to protect and pamper skin.
The only difficult decision you have to make is which one of these body milks will be yours.

Natura’s Skincare from The Amazon
Natura Castanha Nourishing Shower Body Milk:
Natura is one of the Advice Sister favorite brands for “clean beauty.” Their beautiful products derive their benefits from ingredients sourced sustainably from the Amazon.
The products are great for all skin types. However, since they’re made without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, PABA, petroleum, triclosan, DEA and animal ingredients, they’re really great for sensitive skin.
For Winter, moisturize with super moisturizing Castanha, a Brazil nut from the Amazon that is not just delicious to eat, it can help banish dry skin.
It’s the key to Natura Castanha Nourishing Shower Body Milk (424 6.7 fl. oz.).
One application of this moisturizing body milk and dry bumps and flakes were gone!
You could say I am just “nuts” for this Natura product (nuts in the photo are not Brazil nuts, they are just for decoration).
Use it on dry skin, or in the shower. Rinse, or leave it on your moist skin and let it absorb (the latter is a great idea).
Inconcluson: skincare pampering is in, dry skin is out!
