Spa Towells

HopSee Inc. is a small company out of Garland, Texas, that was founded in 2005 by Lisa Baker and Ellen Persefield. Their first product Spa Towells is a unique portable body lotion in the form of a cotton towelette that looks a bit like a wet wipe.

Each towelette is individually packaged in a little foil packet, making it perfect for traveling or popping in your purse. It has enough lotion to moisturize your entire body.

Spa Towells contain a "perfect balance of natural oils, conditioners and humectants to assist in reinforcing skin’s natural ability to attract and retain moisture."



I found that the Spa Towells gave my skin a lovely sheen and I can really see this being fantastic in the summer for smoothing on your exposed limbs before hitting the town.

The only two comments I have are:

If you are environmentally conscious, the foil wrappers may put you off as they are not biodegradable.

I have been trying to figure out what the fragrance of this product reminded me of and for the longest time I could not think of it. I think I have it now...it reminds me of a tanning bed suntan lotion. It is not my personal fav fragrance but I think that consumers will like it. It just isn’t the fragrance for me.

I do think this product is a great idea and I wish the ladies lots of luck.

Spa Towells are sold in packs of 10, 20 and 30 and can be purchased online. A package of 10 is $19.95.

Whish

Whish Body Products are the creation of Jesse and Sam Werner and are the talk of the town.

When Jesse's wife wished that she could find a shave cream that could work as well as her husband's but smell feminine. Jesse went straight to his brother Sam and they began the year and a half journey that brought them to Whish.

These creamy, hypoallergenic Shave Crave creams come in Pomegranate, Almond and Lemongrass and are crafted with essential oils and other natural ingredients to give you the best shave you have ever had.

The Whish Crystal body brushes are handmade using 100% badger hair and fine Swarovski crystals. They transform the Shave Crave into a rich, lush cream while gently exfoliating the skin.

Check out the January 2007 issue of Lucky Magazine that has Cristina Mueller and Heather Summerville boasting their current obsession - Whish's Shave Crave.

These products can be purchased online or picked up at several boutiques - check out www.whishbody.com for more information.
