5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

1. Trader Joe’s Nourish Shower & Bath Cleansing Oil with Almond Oil

The body care section at Trader Joe’s has been FIRE 🔥 lately. Case in point: Nourish Shower & Bath Cleansing Oil with Almond Oil, which is the TJ’s dupe for the fancy schmancy $25 L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil. It’s a rich, thick hydrating oil that turns into a milky wash when it comes into contact with water, and I think you’ll love it if 1) you have dry skin, or 2) if you wear lots of sunscreen and you despise the elbow grease required to remove it, or 3) a combination of the two.

The key to making the most of it, I’ve found, is to rub a small blob of it on my skin while my skin’s dry before I get into the shower or bath. That way, I can fully work in the product without it washing off immediately. Then, when I get into the shower, that’s when I like to build it up into an aromatic, almond-scented moisturizing milk. I use a soft wash cloth to gently exfoliate my skin, but hands and bath poofs work too.

2. Trader Joe’s Hydrating Hyaluronic Body Gel Cream

This is SO GOOD that I bought a backup bottle! I like how quickly this unscented gel cream absorbs, but don’t get it twisted… It might feel light, but it packs a major moisturizing wallop. I highly suggest applying this after showering with the Cleansing Oil! You’ll feel like you just spent the day at a spa.

3. Trader Joe’s Low Fat Lemon Yogurt

Try not to be weirded out by the bright yellow color, because as far as lemon-flavored yogurts go, this one’s tops. It isn’t too sweet or tart, has a wonderfully rich texture, and it tastes like dessert. YUM!

4. My Meyer Lemon Tree

Speaking of lemons, remember the Meyer Lemon tree I got last year? Well, IT FINALLY HAS TINY LITTLE LEMONS ON IT! Every time I walk by it, the little lemons are bigger and bigger. I’m not expecting a bumper crop of lemons, though, because the plant isn’t in a huge pot, but I’ll take what I can get.

5. Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Kids Mineral Sunscreen

I bought this bottle of Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Kids Mineral Sunscreen for Connor (she starts camp this week and will be having many outdoor adventures), but I like it so much that I’m thinking of getting a couple bottles just for myself. She has trouble with sunscreen stinging her eyes, and this physical, mineral-based sunscreen, which has zinc oxide 21.6% as the active ingredient, is the only one that doesn’t seem to bother her.

Most mineral sunscreens usually take FOREVER to rub in, but this one absorbs quickly, WHICH I LOVE, and although the white/purplish cast is kinda intense at first, after 10 minutes you can’t really see it.

It’s extremely water resistant (a huge plus!), so you need to use either an oil-based cleanser or some type of cleansing balm to fully remove it. On me, I’ll use the TJ’s Cleansing Oil, and for Connor’s little kid skin, I use just the tiniest bit of Avene XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cleansing Oil.
