Chocolate + Orange = Yummy
Aromaleigh

By Lisa Link



I really fell in love with AromaLeigh's all-natural products when I tried their "Lovey Dovey Gift Basket" (mentioned in our Bath & Body Products for Couples article), and I certainly wasn't disappointed with these great items.

Chocolate Orange Yummy Body Wash
($15 for 8oz) is a foaming body wash with real cocoa powder and orange extract. It smells sumptuous (but not overly sweet or sugary, which I love), foams respectably (sometimes a problem with natural products) and cleanses without stripping what little oils are left in skin during winter's bluster.

Aromaleigh's Mad for Mocha Body Scrub
($15 for 8oz) has a foaming cocoa base, and utilizes ground coffee as the exfoliant. What a clever idea! The smell of this product is best suited to someone who loves coffee, because it is strongly influenced by the added java.



Personally, I adore (am completely addicted to) drinks of the caffeinated-ambrosia variety, so it was right up my alley. This scrub sloughs really gently, but thoroughly, which is great for skin that is a little more delicate in colder weather.

I also can't help but wonder if all that caffeine somehow helps my more, ahem, lumpy areas (hey, we all have them, no big) because I really do notice a more toned look that lasts the rest of the day. I can't comment on that aspect, but I'll dig around a bit and give you all an update on what I find. At any rate, this is a wonderful body scrub that I really enjoy using.

The one, small drawback to these products is that because they do use real cocoa, and not some processed, factory-born substitute, it can leave a bit of a mess in the shower or tub. It rinses away pretty easily, though, so I wouldn't worry about that too much unless you are really uptight about cleanliness in your immaculate ivory or white bathroom.
