Dixie Bits Whippa Peel, Sweet Sugar Darlin and Rave In review
We are well into winter, the home of two of my biggest nemeses; snow and dry skin. There’s not much I can do about snow living in the Northeast. But I haven’t given up on the battle with dry skin, which attacks my face, feet, hands and legs.
Through this battle I’ve become a connoisseur of lotion. I had a staple lotion that never did me wrong, but it really didn’t excite me either. Then Whippa Peel came along, one of three products we got to try from Dixie Bits. Now, I’m excited.
This lotion claims to be a “multitasking mixture of moisturizers” that hydrates dry skin. I have to agree with that statement. My Whippa Peel Exquisitely Rich Moisturizing Body Lotion is one of the best lotions I’ve ever tried. And that says a lot coming from someone who has tried so many with mixed results.
This lotion somehow feels whipped and light to the touch but is completely moisturizing and rich on the skin. A perfect after-shave lotion for touchable legs with no greasy residue. The major problem I have with Whippa Peel lotion is that it is bad for my productivity. When a lotion smells this good it is hard not to stop and smell my arms.
The scent is strong enough to linger on the skin, but subtle enough not to be considered a perfume. The the ginger extract makes this a nice spicy sweet scent. Also included are ginseng root, almond oil, jojoba and shea butter. But it’s also about what’s not in this lotion, like parabens, synthetic dyes or scents and mineral oil.
This lotion is a little pricier than my old ultra-rich body lotion at $18 (8.5 oz), but for the scent alone it’s worth it to me. I could wear this lotion and no other scented products and be happy all winter long.
We also got to try Sweet Sugar Darlin Scrub ($30). You have to love a company that uses the word “darlin”! Turbinado Sugar is the base for this, with an intoxicating blend of coconut, sweet almond and orange, grapefruit and lemon oils. It smells as delicious as it sounds.
And Stef and Tyna both grabbed the Rave In Body Wash ($13) to test. Stef told me “when we get a mix of items, Tyna and I usually go in opposite directions with our choices, as we have different taste in scents. But neither of us could resist this!” I can’t wait to hear what they thought about this orange, passion flower and pomegranate concoction.
Dixie Bits is a gorgeous green company that is cruelty-free and vegan, which hits all my happy buttons. Review Team, what did you think of these sweet skin potions?
