b-leve b-exquisite Body Brush & b-vibrant Rejuvenating Day Lotion

Hello, Beautiful!

I had this review sitting in my drafts for far too long (it some how was forgotten), so thought I'd get this published before I let it sit there even longer! In this post I have two b-leve products that I tried out: the b-leve b-exquisite Body Brush and the b-leve b-vibrant Rejuvenating Day Lotion. I've reviewed a couple b-leve products in the past and have been happy with them all. I really like the Body Brush, but I had just okay thoughts about the Rejuvenating Day Lotion. Check out all the product info, along with my full review, after each set of pics!

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Kisses!

Product Info...

The b-leve b-exquisite Body Brush has a bamboo handle. Made in China.

Use with your favorite body wash or soap for a luxurious bathing experience. Great for those hard to reach places - like your back. Rinse and air dry when finished using it.

My Review...

I haven't really been a body brush user up until about a year or so ago when I started to incorporate an anti-cellulite brush into my life -- the Mama Mio Body Brush, that came in my Bootcamp For Butts kit. The Mama Mio Body Brush is great for dry brushing, but I never took it into the shower - plus, it doesn't have a long handle so it wouldn't be good for hard to reach places.

The b-leve b-exquisite Body Brush is great! It's not the most soft brush in the whole wide word, but it's effective for sure. It's also inexpensive at just $8.99, so for the price this is a great body brush!

It makes scrubbing my back a breeze with a body scrub - which I typically can't do myself, as I can't get the middle of my back with the scrub or effectively use the scrub myself. But if I put it on this body brush and then use it, I'm good to go. I use it with body wash too, but I honestly prefer to use it with a body scrub because the brush provides that extra bit of exfoliation.

Final Thoughts...

If you like body brushes, or want to start using one in the shower, then this is a great one to get. It's effective and leaves my skin softer than if I just used my hands, wash cloth or one of those shower puffs (which is what I normally use). Would recommend!

My Review...

As I mentioned as the start of this post, I've reviewed a couple b-leve products in the past here on my blog - like their Tranquil Body Lotion, Tranquil Body Wash, and their Moisturizing b-hydrated Shampoo & Conditioner. I've really liked them all, and I even liked the Body Brush too - but I just wasn't as big of a fan of this Rejuvenating Day Lotion.

At $18.99 this is a pricey product from the b-leve line, which are typically around the $7.99 price point for their hair and body items - but their face skin care is more within the higher price range of $14.99 to $19.99, with the exception of their cleanser that is $7.99 and their facial wipes that are $3.99.

For me, this just wasn't hydrating enough. It was very lightweight and it did absorb into my skin nicely and had a light scent but it just didn't feel all that hydrating on my skin when I did use it. It may work better for me in the summer when I like to wear a lighter moisturizer during the day. This also may be a great choice for those of you with oily to very oily skin who like a lighter moisturizer.

Final Thoughts...

This was just okay for me. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. It just wasn't a good match for me. I think for the price I could get a different moisturizer that would hydrate my skin type more. It has good reviews on the b-leve website, so it obviously works for some people. This just wasn't a love affair for me and something I personally wouldn't re-purchase but would still say to check it out if you are a fan of the b-leve products and want to try their skincare out with a light moisturizer.
