Lotions and potions to the rescue

November 2, 2010

Highly recommended: new fair trade body butters by Toronto-based Demo Soap

Other than that certain chill in the air this week, we’ve noticed it’s time to up the ante of our skin care routine.

Maybe you’ve already done the upgrade to heavier fall and winter creams and lotions? Here’s our rundown of a few of our all-time faves alongside new products on the beauty aisle this season.

P.S. You MUST check out Toronto-based Demo Soap. With fair trade designations on their body butters and cocoa butter soaps, this company has the right idea. And might we add that we love the packaging and the delicious-looking soaps? See for yourself below.
