Let me tell you a story. A couple of years ago, on Christmas day, I received a bath and body set as a gift. Staci doesn’t really fool with Bath and Body Works “type” products to be honest. The lotion, although smells nice, but it’s the equivalent of putting on baby powder and massaging it into my skin. I’m ashy as soon as the lotion sets in. And the bath gel is not made for my sensitive skin, so I typically steer clear of that as well. Most of my BBW products are for decoration in the bathroom and I am okay with that.
Okay back to Christmas day. I opened the gift bag and I see that this isn’t even the BBW brand. I didn’t recognize the brand, but I knew that the contents of this gift bag would serve the same purpose of my current BBW products. So it didn’t matter.
A couple of months later, I’m browsing YouTube videos, as I typically do on Sundays, and I came across this video about the brand Tree Hut. The name looked familiar, but I couldn’t quite place it. This person raved about the body scrub and the body butter. Then the light bulb went off. Ding, ding, ding, ding!!!! That’s the brand I received from my Aunt.
I literally RUN to the bathroom and what do I see in the cabinet…..….Tree Hut body scrub and body butter! I was so excited. Finally, I could try a product that I didn’t have to run out and buy. So that same night, I took a shower and used my new goodies. (Sigh of complete and total mystification.) My skin was renewed. How did I not know about this brand?
The scrub was amazing and left my skin soft and moisturized. I barely needed any lotion after using that scrub. But I know better so I still used the butter. The butter was very nice and not super thick where you need a towel to wipe off the excess. (I’m not longer fooled by “thick” moisturizers. This means NOTHING.) But this butter was creamy and the scent, Coconut Lime, was amazing. I applied it and went to bed. Eight hours later, my body is still moisturized. I put out an APB on my ash. There was none to be found.
Okay, so basically this brand is the truth. And the best part is the price. You should know by now that I’m very selective about where I allocate my coins, and this brand’s products retail for about $8 each. Say What! Previously, I’ve tried Lubriderm, CeraVe, Eucerin, Nivea, Palmer’s Coco Butter, Curel, Aveeno, Cetaphil, Soap and Glory, Vaseline Coco Butter, Raw Shea Butter, Prayers, Holy Water, Healing Oil, and anything else I could think of that might help. I mean the list was endless, because who wants an ashy life? All of the nopes to that. Tree Hut came to my rescue in my time of need. And for that I am appreciative.
Here are some other Tree Hut products on my wish list that I intend to try in the near future.
Okay, so once I become obsessed with a brand, I start researching other products to try. The Tree Hut Bare Shave Prep Sugar Scrub fits the bill. It’s basically a prep for your shaves and it exfoliates your dead skin cells, while also lifting the hair for a closer shave. What sold me on this product is that it contains Oat Kernel Oil, which helps to relieve skin irritation. I have sensitive skin, so this is definitely going in the basket. Point. Click. Add.
Yeah sooooo why would I get the shave prep and not get the shave oil? Exactly. That would be nonsensical. The reviews on this product have been superb. This essentially replaces your shaving gel and it leaves your legs, or arms, or whatever else you shave, super moisturized. The reviews on this is that it gives you the closest shave possible and it’s all of that and a copy of Solange’s new album. Sold. Point. Click. Save. Check Out.
All of these items can be picked up at your local Ulta or on Ulta.com. They also sell Tree Hut products at Walgreens and select grocery stores as well. However, I find that Ulta has the most extensive in store selection, and they run a BOGO on this brand at least once a month. Not to mention, this is not considered a premium brand, so you can use your monthly Ulta $2-$3 coupons on this purchase. So I usually manage to get my butters and ish for about $5 to $6 a piece. You need to try it. Don’t let me down.
