Stuff We Love: Space NK’s Florabelle Body Wash

By: Anne Vickman

With winter snow storms comes bitter hatred for the heat-leaking windows in our apartment, and pure love for our tub, which provides respite in the form of hot, soothing baths. And we all know the pièce de résistance for a good bath are the bubbles ? preferably ones that smell divine. Hence our newfound devotion to Space NK’s Florabelle bath and shower gel ($20), a flowery but not overpowering concoction with hearts of rose and jasmine.

We were especially impressed that it’s also free from chemicals with potential health hazards, such as sulfates, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, and synthetic colors ? a feat that is, despite the wealth of products dubbed “natural” and “organic” filling shelves these days, actually quite rare.
