If you’re a regular here at, you know that I take every opportunity I can to share products that make my dry, scaly skin softer! In such a saturated market, it’s tough to find products that truly solve the problem of dry skin. So it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Prestiche, a line of natural body care products that I’ve started using regularly. I’m so impressed with Prestiche because, considering the lovely scents in their collection, nothing is artificially scented. All fragrances come from natural oils!!

I have to admit it was tough picking out which products to try out; everything from the Rose Mineral Treat (deliciously and naturally scented bath salts) to the super-smoothing Pure Shea African Velvet sounded like a must-have for my thirsty skin! But I did find a few favorites to share:

Miracle Glow – Vanilla Select

Calling all vanilla fans! I’ve found your soon-to-be favorite product. I’m very picky about vanilla scents; it is, after all, my favorite. It’s hard to believe they achieved such a warm, rich vanilla scent with just seven ingredients! It’s full of natural oils, including Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E, all of which make for a killer glow. If you’re going out on the town in a mini and want that supermodel glow on your legs, this is it!! You can even use it as a massage oil. I personally like to apply it right out of the shower when my pores are still open and ready to receive some much needed moisture.

Crème de la Crème – Sweet Orange Mango Papaya

I’ve never liked fruity scents. Repeat: Never. Until I met this yummy whipped body cream! Never mind how well it hydrates my skin with such a light formula… It smells delicious!! It’s hard not to reach for this stuff when I need a dose of moisture; it’s both rich and super-absorbent so it doesn’t leave a greasy residue behind. Just soaks into your skin for a silky smooth finish. Once again, the ingredients list is small, which is always a good thing. (And it’s got coconut oil in it, my secret weapon for dry skin!)

African Velvet – Jasmine

Before I go off about how much I love this product, I have a confession to make: Consistent with my dry skin, I have a recurring problem with my left elbow… It always gets super dry. For no reason!! And no amount of body cream has ever cured it, I’ve always needed dermatologist-grade products to restore my elbow to normal form. (Seriously, who has issues with their elbows?!) Considering this stuff is raw, unrefined shea straight from Africa, I thought I’d give it a try on my dry elbow. The outcome shocked the hell out of me: After just one application, my elbow was almost completely back to normal!! It mysteriously became soft again. So I continued using it and haven’t had the dry elbow problem since. So if you’ve got problem areas like me or just want super mega moisture, you must try this stuff!!

    I’m so glad I came across this post! I actually have the super dry elbow problem but my right one and nothing helps. My doctor prescribed an antibiotic type of cream which does help a little but it smells like medical cream….gross! I can’t wait to try the African velvet product 🙂 . Thanks!!!!
