It's been awhile, but well worth the wait! This week's must-have is a true home-spa necessity. Sabon is a decadent NYC body and skin line with some of the most incredible smelling body treats around.

My newest obsession is the Sabon Sorbet - lighter than a body butter but creamier than a lotion. It has the consistency of a gel (more water, less shea) and glides on the skin with an effortless ease. It leaves skin feeling smooth and refreshed and smelling delish (like a real sorbet - fruity). The gel absorbs quickly and leaves skin ultra-hydrated.

Why a gel for winter, you may be wondering? Well, when it's cold outside, chances are your heater is on full-blast. Heat is recycled air (GROSS) that literally dehydrates your skin of moisture. The gel reinvigorates and replenishes the body but without the thickness and pastiness of a shea butter. Both are great options, and both rehydrate skin brilliantly, but I'm just feeling something less heavy this week (after all, sweaters and boots are heavy enough!).

Sabon's Sorbet comes in 5 colorful flavors to quench your skin-buds: Lavender Apple, Lemon Basil, Ginger Orange, Vanilla Coconut, and Tropic.

**QUICK TIP** Try leaving the sorbet in the fridge overnight. After a nice, hot bath or shower, lather the cooling gel onto the body for added refreshness!

PRICE TAG: $22.00 for a 6.8 oz tub

I have been an avid reader of Beauty Banter for some time now. I have found it to be an amazing resource for finding the perfect products.
I was so happy to see your love of Sabon! I have been using their products for years and I would settle for nothing less. I LOVE the salt scrub and I just can't recommend it enough. I like the Patchouli Lavender Vanilla. Every time someone touches my skin they comment on the amazing softness. I always send them directly to Sabon. I use not only the scrub but the Shower Oil and the Body Lotion. I am 42 and I live in Brooklyn. The winter weather here and the fact that you must spend a great deal of time outside commuting can dry you up like the Arizona desert (yes I lived there too). But through all of that I remain "baby butt soft" and I have Sabon to thank for it.
