If you're looking for a treat to pamper yourself with, I'd highly recommend checking out Sabon. An Israeli-based company with a growing string of shops in Manhattan, they make some of the best bath and body products I've ever tried. Sabon first caught my attention when my friend Leslie highly recommended their Patchouli Lavender Vanilla Salt Scrub. After trying it for myself, I immediately jumped on the bandwagon, amazed at the smooth skin it gave me. And I was so smitten with the Patchouli Lavender Vanilla scent that I went back and bought the matching body lotion.
The products come packaged in real glass jars, which feel a lot more special and luxurious than your average item from the drugstore or Bath & Body Works. Of course, they're a little pricier too, but easily justifiable using the "little goes a long way" philosophy-- the body scrub is (sadly) only meant to be used once or twice per week, and the lotion is pretty rich, so you only need a dab of it. Of course, I didn't have any problem justifying the purchase of a couple of more "practical" items, like sunscreen wipes and hand sanitizer, which I've been using for perfumed pick-me-ups throughout the day.
