Product Review: A Staycation with Tahitian Skin

by Bionic Beauty on 28.Jul.2009 · 5 comments

Staycation is like THE buzz word lately. People throw it out there to show their ‘up’ on their current news slang. I mean, after all, it’s a great concept. Stay at home, or local, and embrace what’s close to you during your holiday.

Tahitian Skin Body Wash and Lotion review by Bionic Beauty blog

Bionic Beauty reports on Tahitian Skin body care products!

Here’s a vacation in one of the closest places I know of- your shower. Yeppers! WorldWide Skin has this fabulous set of Tahitian Skin body wash and lotion.

Hydrate-Heal body wash is a sudsy body wash packed vanilla and blood orange. It really perked up by senses while I scrub-a-dub-dubbed. In addition to getting you clean, this body wash is 71% organic, has no parabens, no synthetic fragrances, is vegan, and it’s cruelty free!

Soften-Soothe body lotion has the same invigorating vanilla and blood orange mix. The scent lingered on my skin enough for those close to me to notice the yummy scent. It does a great job of being a light lotion but still packing a punch of moisture- meaning I was able to use it here in humid Florida without breaking a sweat. Some heavy lotions, or those that don’t truly sink into your skin, just feel like they clog my skin. Not good when it’s 80%+ humidity out.

I really love some of the ingredients in this lotion- Witch Hazel to help keep your entire body toned, lots of natural moisturizers (Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, and more), Neem Oil (which according to all the press this oil is getting, must have mystical qualities, hee!).

Anyhow, like it’s sister product, Soften-Soothe lotion is paraben free, cruelty certified vegan, has no synthetic fragrances. This lotion contains 89% organic content!

The Hydrate-Heal body wash is $26 for 8 ounces; Soften-Soothe lotion is $32 for 8 ounces. Both are available at

Ah yes, the staycation. I actually did a segment about them for Fox – it is the buzz of the moment.
Mine involves heavy application of self tanner and many fruity drinks!

Sigh. My staycation involves tanner and drinks. My buzz just involves drink…

I have tried using Hydrate-Heal body wash and it’s really effective.My skin looks younger and healthier. I’ve been looking for their body lotion, I wanted to try it as well.

A trip to the beach with a towel and a margarita sounds like the perfect “Staycation”….

My staycation involves no phone calls. And plenty of sunscreen.
