Body Care Review: Stella Chroma, Coffee Body Polish, Emulsified Sugar Scrub, Luxe Hand Cream, Intense Butter Balm, Perfume Oil & Nourishing Cuticle Oil

Morning beauties!  Next week is game time.  Are you ready for Black Friday shopping?  Do you have a list ready of things you want to snag?  Will you be shopping in the stores or only hitting up online sales?  Well I'm a it behind on nail polish posts but I can share some amazing body care products from Stella Chroma with you! And she has lots of new Fall scents.  And she will be having a Back Friday sale.  Here's what I know, there will be new releases for BF, there will be mystery polishes for $7.50 and you can save 15% using my code MNPO.  So with all that said and fingers crossed I can do a little swatching to share polishes with you (swatching is super time consuming and currently my arms are full of carrying around a 2-week old), let's jump in to the post!

*press sample*

Pam teased you a little with this new product and I am over the moon excited for it!  It's Coffee Body Polish and it's amazing!  This is a perfectly gritty, grainy, body smoothing scrub that leaves a slight coffee scent behind on your skin.  It's got just the right amount of oils and butters to leave your skin super soft and supple.  It's pretty much the same recipe as the Emulsified Sugar Scrub but has added turbinado sugar AND coffee!  Coffee is rich in antioxidants and it's said it helps tighten the skin.  You will absolutely want this product if you love coffee scented things, love scrubs or love having really soft skin!  You can get this in a few scent options; Straight Up (black coffee), Cinnamon Dolce, Salted Caramel Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and Pumpkin Spice Latte. You can purchase a 9oz jar for $22.  

Here's a product you know and love...Emulsified Sugar Scrub!  I have nothing but rave reviews for this sugar scrub, it's absolutely fantastic and my skin is always soft and smooth after use.  It really does a great job sloughing off dead skin and leaving you with fresh, glowy, soft skin.  But the big deal here is that I tried out one of the new scents.  I received this one is Bonfire Bliss, it's described as a heliotrope, charred pine and cedar, amber, sandalwood and musk with sweeter notes of marshmallow, vanilla, brown sugar and coconut.  I can't explain it in terms of what it reminds me of but it is SO good!  I literally want to have this scent wafting through my house all the time!   You can pick up the Sugar Scrub in a 5oz jar for $9.  

Another new product!  Luxe Hand Cream is a tall drink for your hands!  It's created in small batches and is phthalate and paraben free. I used this on my chapped knuckles today and they were so very happy for the moisture and heavenly scent!  I got this one in Woolen Blanket and it's another fabulous scent.  It's got notes of rosewood, cedar, clove, vetiver and amber.  The lotion itself is fantastic, it's very moisturizing, sinks in to my skin well and does not leave behind a sticky or greasy residue.  Just smooth and luxuriously soft skin. The scent lasted for about an hour and a half before it fully dissipated. For total disclosure, the lotion is made by Amani Soaps for Stella Chroma.  You can purchase the Luxe Hand Cream in 2oz size for $5.50 or 4oz size for $9.  

Moving along to another product that many of you already know and love, Intense Butter Balm. this is a serious work horse that can fix up even the most ragged and dried out cuticles (and hands, and lips, and elbows and heels...).  It's loaded with a blend of butters and oils (I'm talking Shea, almond, cocoa, beeswax, mango, vitamin E).  A little goes a long way and the balm literally melts on your skin almost immediately.  This product does not have any added fragrances but you may notice a very soft scent of the butters used to make the balm.  The Intense Butter Balm is $13 for a 1oz jar.   

But wait there's more!  Yet another brand new product for you to ooooh and aaaah over!  Perfume Oil in an amber glass roller ball container.  The Perfume Oil is made with fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E and the fragrance of your choice.  I got this one in Woolen Blanket and will happily wear this Fall scent well in to the Winter.  I love that it's easy to apply and toss in my bag to "touch up" my scent!  I noticed that it lasted for a good hour and a half before the scent wore off, and believe me, I was sniffing my wrists like a crazy lady.  You can pick any of the scents available for your perfume oil.  The Perfume Oil is $12 for a 10ml rollerball applicator.  

And last but not least is the Nourishing Cuticle Oil.  I have always been a big fan of Stella Chroma's cuticle oil blend.  Not only because it's a 100% pure and natural bend of oils, but also because it absorbs quickly leaving my cuticles soft and scented so nicely.  It's good to the point that it's a bit addicting and I find myself applying it multiple times a day - which is great during the winter when my skin is uber dry.  If you do use this cuticle oil regularly if could give you some amazing results; stronger more flexible nails, less peeling and breakage and faster growth!  I had Bonfire Bliss scent and couldn't take my fingers away from my nose, sniff sniff!  It's in a super easy to use brush pen that you click to push up the oil, then just brush on!  You can pick any of the scent in the current list.  The Nourishing Cuticle Oil comes in a 2ml brush pen for $4.50.
