Favorite Things: Body Powders

One of my absolute favorite items to splurge on is body powders. These are some of my favorite body powders on the market.

Santa Maria Body Powders
As the popularity of the Santa Maria Novella body powders goes up, so does the price. That certainly won't stop me from ordering them again, these have a talcum powder base and are generously scented. My personal favorite from the line is Melograno (Pomegranate).

While the packaging is cute for gift giving and receiving, it doesn't really stand up to daily use. I instead transferred the powder into glass powder shakers which makes it much easier to use.

The line is available at LAFCO New York $36.00 for a 230ml/8.1 fl. oz. container. Melograno, gardenia and rose are available through Aedes.

Lush Body Powders

My two favorite from this line are Silky Underwear and Bare Naked Lady.

Silky Underwear is a cornstarch based powder which has tiny pieces of coco butter which melt into your skin leaving you feeling silky soft. It has a pale jasmine fragrance to it.

Bare Naked Lady named after the Canadian band, is a Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and calamine based powder which has tiny flecks of gold glitter mixed in it. It has a subtle rose scent to it.

Both powders are vegan friendly and retail for $7.95/3.5 oz container.

Looking for a powder puff? Caswell-Massey has nice and affordable one for $12/9" round. That's the one I have.
