Milk And Honey Oatmeal Bath Bomb

Lavender Honey Face Mask
Simply Quinoa has us obsessing over this amazing honey and cinnamon face mask. Seriously, you’re going to love it—especially how hydrating it is.
Honey Body Butter
This body butter from Sincerely Kinsey looks good enough to eat! But don’t, because in addition to almond oil and Shea butter, this lotion also uses wax—we don’t have to tell you how unpleasant that would be. Instead, stick to pampering your outside with it after a hot bath or shower.

Milk And Honey Bath Melts
