My Beauty Must-Haves is a new column I will be posting here on Life According to Kait. As a beauty intern at Harper’s Bazaar, every day I am surrounded by hundreds of different beauty products. Needless to say, I’ve become obsessed with trying them all out. Here, I will share my top picks so you know exactly what to buy the next time you head to Sephora or beauty supply store.
Are you dying for super soft skin, but are always too lazy to lather up in body lotion? RITUALS… Shanti Chakra Nourishing Body Oil is the answer to all your prayers…trust me.
Not only does this product smell amazing with an incredible mix of Indian Rose and Sweet Almond Oil, but it also works wonders on your skin. At the end of your shower, before you dry off, spritz some oil anywhere on your body where you crave softer skin. Next, rub it in. Unlike so many other oils, this one absorbs into your skin and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy at all. When you dry off with a towel as usual, any excess that didn’t get absorbed is easily removed.
I went to one of the RITUALS… pop-up stores, tried out this product and couldn’t leave without it. The selling point for me was when I learned how the nourishing ingredients in this body oil actually help diminish stretch marks on your skin. I, like many other women, suffer from those nagging stretch marks on my upper thighs. This product has been my salvation. After using it for only a little over a week, I can already notice a difference in my skin. Whether you’re looking for a product to make your stretch marks less noticeable or just want a luxurious smelling oil for your skin, Shanti Chakra is definitely worth a try.
