A Zaftig Woman
By Melissa Miller
Beautiful plus-sized Elite model, Melissa Orange, and her
sister, Yvonne Kreusch, created
Woman, a boutique of bath and body products, makeup,
skincare and clothing located in Dayton, Ohio.
Fortunately for us, they opened an online store. Orange and Kreusch make the
bath and body products and scent them in a wide array of fruit
and foody scents.
Shea Butter Body Pudding ($12.50 for
6oz) is one of their big, zaftig sellers. It contains 20%
shea butter and is rich and moisturizing, yet glides on the
skin like water to absorb instantly.
The Body Puddings are
available in a scrumptious array of scents including Vanilla
Cream Cake, Pineapple Grapefruit, Buttercream, Nectar of the
Gods, Cotton Candy, Crème Brulée, Lemongrass Sage, Tangy Pear
and Ginger Soufflé.
30% Shea Butter Hand Cream ($10 for
4oz) is super moisturizing and soothing for dry hands; it
gives L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream a real run for its
money for performance and price.
The Shower Gels ($8.50
for 8 oz.) do not contain SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) and are
thick and sudsy. I tried the Shower Gel in Lemon Crème and
fell in love with the smooth and soft lemony vanilla
fragrance; I now understand why this scent has a cult
A Zaftig Woman’s new Body Butter ($14 for 4
oz.) is a thick, buttery mix of shea and cocoa butters that
leaves the skin satiny soft, without feeling greasy. Try this
in Vanilla Cream Cake – you won’t be disappointed.
favorite bath treats are Candy Bath Melts ($6.25 for 8
melts), available in Crème Brule, Chocolate Coconut and
Chocolate Chip. Loaded with shea and cocoa butters, these
fragrant, creamy melts are wonderful for dry skin.

.15oz) in Vanilla or Orange, Sugar Scrub ($16 for 16oz) in Vanilla Crème Cake and the new Honey Butter Soufflé
Whipped Body Cream ($14 for 4oz) in Lemon Crème.
