You Glow Girl

We wondered what originated the flurry of orders for Yuzu Gold scrub – then we found out Young, Black and Fabulous has spoken. We blush!

A YBF must have is that Yuzo Gold body scrub. I’m honestly in love with it. I have never tried anything in the shower where if I didn’t put lotion on after the shower–you wouldn’t even notice. It smells incredible and feels heavenly. I’m not lying peoples. Since I believe exfoliation is the most important beauty routine next to cleansing, this is that summer must have. Check it out here.

We know the new site is spiffy, but I love seeing retro. Here is a photo of the old Lloyd Center. Get nostalgic and look up your old haunts…but be sure to check out the new beautyfirst at the updated Lloyd Center in August!

It’s a Beautiful Thing…Natural Perfumes

Growing up in the Aaron Spelling heydays of the 80’s (a respectful ‘gotta love him’ btw), everything was big. Big Hair, Big Makeup, Big Scents. Oh…remember the scents? Over-The-Top, fill-the-room from miles away types…

At the time they seemed like a good idea. When I started to realize there were mysterious ingredients in the mix, and most of the population reacted in a sneeze fit or immediate migrane, it was like – eh, not so much. So what’s a girl to do?

Solessence’s Atmosphere Aromatic Dry Spray is one answer.

Multi-Purpose Spray:

  • This super clean spray is a fast evaporating silica derivitive which serves to deposit the scent onto your skin. It provides a pleasant, silky-to-the-touch feel. It is a lovely touch to your wrists, midriff or hair.

But that isn’t all!

  • Atmosphere is non-staining, so you can use it on your linens and clothing to impart the Solessence signature scent of your choice. “I use the spray in my room for my sheets actually! I spray it just above my bed and the scent really hangs for a good amount of time “
  • Spritz into the air to refresh your environment in a clean and lovely way. It truly is a multi-use item.

Solid Perfume Option: Solessence’s SheaShea*XieXie Hand & Body Butter This combination of pure, unrefined/organic shea butter & oil serves to lock in moisture in a heavy duty way. The jars are small to keep stock fresh – each can last 6 months. A lovely scent is a benefit. Most of our customers also use this on their face to keep a beautiful glow. Apply a small amount as desires.

“I’ve gotten so many compliments on how soft and glistening my skin is when I use the scrub and the body butter. Both are great”

Soon-to-be-revealed: A lovely, natural oils and silica mix.

I love using these combinations and feel wonderful that I don’t have any qualms about my son being near them. I can go a whole routine with one signature scent, or mix and match. It is a pleasure to have people fawning over an aroma instead of sneezing.

Stay tuned! Stay clean!

Coming Soon: Whole Foods Market/Whole Body in Chelsea

The wait is over!

Whole Foods Chelsea tells us you have been asking for more Solessence. Good news – product will be on the shelves around the week of July 4th. Whole Foods is quite selective about the product they carry, and shelf space is at a premium. Please reward your patience and Whole Food’s savvy for listening to the public by picking up whatever your heart desires.

If you haven’t been to the Chelsea location, amaze yourself! While Whole Foods Columbus Circle has a ‘store within a store’, this Whole Body is actually next door to the market. A million lovely items to be found…including our scrubs and soaps. We thank you.
