The Best Brands : Lotion, Shampoo & Soap!

Updated on February 27, 2013

When it come to beauty products, there are many many options and it can be quite overwhelming! I have tried many different brands and Have finally come across my favorites and I will tell you why!

Favorite Brands :

  • Alba Botanica
  • Desert Essence
  • Avalon Organics
  • Pure & Basic

#1 Body Lotion

Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion (Original 32 oz)

This is by far my favorite body lotion! It has a nice clean scent that is not over powering nor does it clash with body sprays or perfumes. On the skin, you can feel is just melt like butter. I use it on my legs, arms and just about every where! What I love about it, is it is paraben free and organic! Which means it has natural ingredients that are pure and safe for the body. Its blend of aloe vera, green tea, echinacea, chamomile and lavender leaves your skin soft, supple and silky smooth!

#1 Body Wash (Basic)

Alba Botanica Very Emollient Bath & Shower Gel (French Lavender, 32oz)

The scent of lavender naturally calms adults, babies and even animals! This body wash has a nice clean scent of lavender with a touch of sweetness. It leaves the skin clean, soft, and refreshed! It is paraben free and organic which means not "Yuck!" in this stuff! Plus, it is hypoallergenic! They carry 4 other scents which are equally as nice, but I prefer the lavender over the rest.

#1 Body Wash (Fruity)

Pure & Basic Body Wash (Wild Banana Vanilla - 12 oz )

If you like your body wash with a few spoons of sweetness, this body wash will have you in for a treat! The smell is absolutely delicious! It contains 10 moisturizing botanicals that will leave your skin clean, soft and smelling great! It is paraben free and has certified organic ingredients as well. I personally LOVE it!

#1 Shampoo

Avalon Organics Biotin B-Complex Therapy Thickening Shampoo ( 14 oz.)

If you are into pampering your hair, you will love this stuff! It has B complex vitamins right in the ingredients so every time you wash your hair, it gets pumped full of nutrition! It not only gives your hair life and fullness but helps control excessive hair loss. Whether your hair is thin and fine or curly and thick, this shampoo will help keep your hair happy and healthy! It really does make a difference which is why I always come back to it. It doesn't have an over-powering smell either! The conditioner is only "okay". I prefer to use the shampoo by itself and add oil to my hair instead of using conditioner.

#1 Face Wash

Desert Essence Original Thoroughly Clean Face Wash For Oily & Combination Skin ( 8.5 oz.)

This is a great basic face wash for any type of skin. My skin varies from dry to oily and this soap always works! I love it because it not only gives my face a deep clean, but it helps when I have break-outs. Over time, it leaves your skin with a nice, healthy glow. It is paraben free, organic and gentle on the skin. The smell is a bit different but you get use to it after a few days of using it and actually grow to like it.

Where to Buy...

I have seen these items in drug stores and local organic shops. Most of which have them priced quite high. I always buy my items from They have all these items and more for often time %40 off the retail value stores charge. Check it out!

Also, look into each brand. I have tried many products from each brand listed above and have never been disappointed. These are simply my favorite. If you have any questions about other products, please, feel free to ask! I have tried a butt load of their stuff! :)
