It is getting warmer, which means putting away sweaters and boots and bringing out short sleeves and sandals — oh my!
So, my skin needs to be smooth and soft. I am loving body care that smells amazing and moisturizes. The products below are my new faves:

Nad’s Exfoliating Body Wax Strips ($8.99 USD) — With a tropical grapefruit scent, the new Nad’s Exfoliating Body Wax Strips are an innovative take on the traditional at-home wax strip with the world’s FIRST exfoliating waxing strip. Each cultivated with the Nad’s patented Xfol™ technology, a coarse exfoliating surface on the outside to remove buildup and dead skin, these strips work to release trapped ingrown hairs while a powerful, strong ‘grip’ within the strip to adhere and remove hair. Recommended use for hair as short as 1.5mm.
What I think: These are interesting. The outer paper that holds the wax is actually an exfoliating strip. You rub it in circles on your skin before you wax. Then rub the outside of the wax strip between the palms to warm it up, peel and apply. I then make sure the wax is on securely and pull off. Ouch! But it works pretty well. I still had a few hairs left and had to do it again. It then left my skin hair free! This is nice if you don’t like to shave.
