-priced niche line created by the ex-wife of a Rolling Stone, and Lisa Hoffman Beauty, a body/fragrance spa brand founded by Dustin Hoffman's wife, but neither of these women is exactly a household name. Now, however, we have Nuance, a full collection of cosmetics, skincare, haircare, and...

Mayron's Goods' line of body products caught my eye immediately with its packaging: the bold lettering, bright red borders, and 1950s-style illustration of a delivery man and his van are upbeat and distinctive. Although most of Mayron's Goods' nature-based lotions and potions were created with...

Orange Blossom Whipped Face & Body Frosting is fragranced with neroli essential oil and blood orange oil. Its scent opens with a clean, bright neroli note, one of the nicest I've smelled in a body product in ages, and it turns more citrusy as the product warms on skin. This Frosting would...

Earlier this year, I posted a review of Pattern Body Washes , a simple-but-smart line of multi-purpose cleansers that happen to have wonderful fragrances. Pattern recently added two new body washes and a body lotion to its range, and (believe it or not) I've actually been running low on body...

I spent a few minutes browsing the website for this Chicago-based "eco-fair trade non-profit shop," and ended up ordering two scented body products by an "artisan" brand called Anti-Body. All the products offered by Anti-Body ("anti-poverty, beautiful body") feature fairly traded...

With its recently launched Body Serum, Duchess Marden has moved beyond the face and neck to address the rest of our skin. I know that serums have become very popular in the skincare market over the past few seasons; now, apparently, the term is being applied to body products as well. (A...

Güd (pronounced "good") is a new line of fragranced bath and body products brought to us by Burt's Bees. Its upbeat promotional campaign, complete with clever "scratch 'n' sniff" cards keyed to an animated video on Güd's Facebook page and website, has been easy to spot in recent weeks. The...

The complete Dirty line takes a new approach to "layering": each product is scented with a different element of the Dirty composition, so that they can be worn together to recreate the total fragrance. The Spring Wash Shower Gel, for example, emphasizes Dirty's minty aspect with an infusion...

with one bargain item, so I'll suggest Aveeno Positively Nourishing Soothing 24-Hour Body Moisturizer (above right). I don't really buy into its promise of "active naturals," but I think its formula is better than that of most drugstore body lotions, and I do like the fragrance. It's a creamy...

The motivating factor behind my latest return to L'Occitane was the release of some new honey-scented body products. I've always liked L'Occitane's chunky, pastel-tinted Bonne Mère soaps, both for myself and as little gifts for new mothers, so I was curious when I learned that a Bonne Mère...
