Beauty on the Road {Part II}: Obiqo Smoothing Eye Cream & Silky Body Butter Review + GIVEAWAY

It happens every year without fail…

I neglect my skin all winter as I shield myself in a cocoon of thick sweaters and opaque tights. Before I know it, spring suddenly emerges out of nowhere, leaving me on a mad woman’s mission to exfoliate, pamper, and smooth my skin before shedding my protective layers and showing some leg.

This year, I’ve decided to do a little preemptive work with the help of my friends over at Obiqo who were kind enough to send over a couple of skincare products for me to test drive. When it comes to lotions and creams, I have pretty exacting standards, but Obiqo Silky Body Butter more than delivers.  I like to apply it as soon as I get out of the shower to lock in the moisture (after exfoliating with my shower gloves, of course). It glides on nice and smooth, and leaves my skin feeling like satin and not at all sticky or greasy.  You never know when you’re going to encounter hard water in hotel showers, so having a heavy-duty moisturizer like this on hand is a life saver.

Another essential that I’ve added to my beauty routine over the past couple of years is an under-eye cream.  My skin can be very sensitive, and some eye creams are too heavy for me and lead to breakouts. I’ve been using Obiqo Smoothing Eye Cream for close to a month now, and  it’s become a staple in my daily skincare routine.  Sleepless nights in a foreign city can be brutal, so my tired eyes definitely appreciate waking up to the cooling touch of cucumber, camomile and kiwi in the morning.

Obiqo combines nutrient-rich sea kelp from New Zealand with the very finest European marine anti-ageing extracts and French organic sea lavender. Here are two coupon codes you can use if you’d like to try them out for yourself:
