Bethenny Frankel is on fiya. She is loved by many for her honest and no-nonsense approach to life and everything she touches seems to turn to gold. We grew to love her on The Real Housewives, then she wrote a few books, created several low calorie cocktails, now she has her own talk show – and a skin care line.
I was eager to try a few products from Skinnygirl Face and Body. As a busy mom and a generally down to earth person, her line is as straightforward as Bethenny herself. It’s affordable too, and even though she may make millions, even Bethenny loves a good bargain.
First impressions: Everything smells great. With the smoothing face scrub, you really smell yummy cranberry. It’s a treat for your face, a very nice scent while sloughing off those dead skin cells. The “mommy” energizing leg cream smells refreshingly menthol and wasn’t greasy like other lotions can be. It just absorbed into the skin with no leftover residue which was great. I can’t say the same about the “mommy” body oil; it is definitely oil but I did like it. If I can be disciplined enough to religiously use these products daily, I might just be able to banish my dry skin.
Perhaps my favorite product of them all is the plumping lip gloss. I’d seen accolades given to Bethenny by fans on twitter, and it is indeed delightful. This gloss is different from others – it is very thick which is what must give it that plumping appearance. And I love the applicator.
How much? Face Scrub – $6.99; Body Oil – $8.99; Plumping Lip Gloss – $5.99. Fabulous products at an even more fabulous price point. Skinnygirl Face and Body products are available at CVS, Walmart and at Skinnygirlfaceandbodystore.com.
