My predilection for pretty, shiny things extends to those beyond sequin dresses. Christmas lights stream the contours of my bedroom ceiling year-round, my favorite pair of shoes glow in the dark, and when I used to drink alcohol, I couldn’t host a party without the attendance of my dear friend Goldschlager, the cinnamon Schnapps liqueur with gold leaf flakes floating around in it. And now this.

All bow to Simply Divine Botanicals–the company has perfected skin lotion and I shall never go back to anything else. Of course, the first thing that intrigued me was the 2nd ingredient (the 1st one was cute, though): “Spring Water Electrolyzed with 24kt Gold”. What can I say, it’s the glow!
The first thing you notice upon application is Skincredible‘s sandalwood scent. To me, sandalwood is androgynous –rich, sweet, fragrant yet delicate, woody, floral. One of my guy friends is a recent convert and uses it every day!
If you have typically dry skin, like me, I suggest applying a thicker layer and letting it set in before heading out in the blistering cold. In warmer weather, though, it suffices as your moisturizing lotion with a simple, light application.
Just looking at the label, you’d think Skincredible is meant for serious skin conditions, but its ingredients are simple, organic and meant for everyone. I’ve been using the Skincredible lotion for the past 4 months, and I’ve noticed my skin become noticeably more even-toned and I haven’t broken out in pimples or experienced outbursts of redness (typical with me in the past).
I think I see something shiny…
