There are so many luxurious products in this line. The body butters are pure bliss. I have never used a body moisturizer that is as rich and hydrating as these butters. The fragrances are completely heavenly! I love to slather them all over from head to toe right after my shower or bath to seal in the moisture. I'm not kidding, my skin stays soft and supple for more than twenty-four hours! I also love to indulge my skin in Spa-Ah's Whipped Body and Massage Cream. It smells so amazing!
Speaking of bathing, you are in for a blissfully relaxing treat when you use Smith & Vandiver's Spa-Ah Bath Fizzies! Just drop one in the tub and let it melt away your stress while it gently softens and soothes your skin. You will be lifted up by the wonderful fragrances, too! My favorite sent is the Island Retreat!
Or, you can try their Earth gems mineral bath to soak away muscle discomfort from stress or overwork while detoxifying and softening your skin. A special form of Epsom salts, these extra large purified Magnesium Sulfate crystals are grown without impurities to help draw out toxins and alleviate swelling. What a perfect way to relax after a long day at work, or after a workout!
For tired, aching feet, you will love Spa-Ah's assortment of foot treatments. There are foot fizzies, warming pedicure scrub, warming foot lotion and a heel repair stick. If you use the warming scrub and then the lotion right before bed, you will sleep like a baby, a very happy and relaxed baby. If your heels are cracked and dry, the heel repair stick will make your heels looked and feel completely renewed. Plus, your feet will smell fresh and beautiful with this delightful watermint fragrance.
For the best, most relaxing and natural massage of your life, look no further than Spa Ah massage oils. There are Sress Release, Sore Muscle and Rejuvenation massage oils. These oils are formulated with a silky blend of natural sunflower, safflower, and sweet almond oils that provide for easy hand movements. They are also perfect for a wonderful after shower moisturizer. Use it on damp skin and your skin will feel perfectly hydrated and soft. Plus, the fragrances are so uplifting, comforting and relaxing.
Smith & Vandiver Spa-Ah products are easily the best bath and body products I have ever experienced and I have been blessed with the opportunity to try out many brands. I can hardly wait for the end of each day so that I can relax and renew my spirits with these heavenly products. Thank you Smith & Vandiver!

I have always been one to shave my legs, and I have never waxed them because I just can't stand to let my leg hairs grow out to a length suitable for waxing. I would be a total woman from the amazon, or perhaps a gorilla. But, I have tried waxing my peach-fuzzy face, and my annoying little dark hair mustache that, if left unattended, adorns my upper lip. I just love my genetics. (Not really) I come from some very hairy ancestors.
Anyway, there were times when I have used NAIR to get rid of my facial fuzz, and I ended up BURNING the heck out of my face. I had to go to school with a bright red burnt upper lip and facial area. People stared at me al day long like I had a disease. NAIR is just no good. Plus, if a hair removing product can burn your skin, what kind of chemicals are we exposing ourselves to? They cannot be good.
I was very excited to have discovered MOOM 100% Organic Hair Remover. I wanted to try a product that would take away my peach fuzz and my unbecoming lady-stache. I did not want to try to put hot wax on my face, nor did I want to shave, so I was eager to give MOOM a try, and I am so happy with the results! My face is smooth and hair free!
What is MOOM? (taken from their website)
MOOM is an Effective, easy to use and trouble-free, this organic hair remover has embraced ESSENTIAL OILS for their endless benefits in order to offer a real solution to the hair removal problem. MOOM is founded on the premise that the skin is a receptive organ that absorbs what you put on it including the harmful substances found in certain hair removers (resins, alcohol, wax, and chemicals).
Until now, all hair removers have concentrated on removing unwanted hair and have not cared about what damage they cause to the skin underneath. MOOM does not ignore the skin. In fact, after using MOOM the skin feels and looks smoother, younger and moisturized. MOOM is so pure it contains nothing but Organic Chamomile, Organic Sugar, Organic Lemon Juice, Organic Tea Tree Oil and Water. MOOM fabric strips are made form tightly woven polycotton stock. They are washable and reusable for years to come.
