We are in love with the vintage feel Dr. Dobbs skin care line has. From the first time we looked at the products, we knew our Grandmother's would approve.
From bath treatments to lip balms and even treatments for poison ivy, Dr. Dobbs has a product for everyone. And we love how unique some of the products are.
Here are some of our favorite Dr. Dobbs products.
I'll go ahead and confess to the world, I have a coffee problem. Morning noon or night, I enjoy a good cup of strong coffee. So, when I first saw Perk-O-Lips Coffee Flavored Lip Balm, I knew it was going to be a favorite.
It doesn't smell exactly like my favorite cup of coffee, but it has more of an old-fashioned coffee scent. Thoughts of my Grandmother's ever-flowing pot of coffee instantly came to mind.
It glides on smooth, doesn't tug and keeps your lips hydrated for a long time.
Even though I've gone camping many times in my life, I've been lucky enough to never have gotten poison ivy. But now that I'm a mom of 2 boys, I can see I'm one hike away from very unhappy, itchy little boys.
Happy Camper Soap is a wonderful product that you should definitely have on hand if you're a camper, hiker or live near the woods. And because it's a bar soap, it's easy to just have on hand to use when needed.
The soap is made with jewelweed plant to control the itch, as well as pine tar and tea tree oil to soothe your skin. A remedy as old as they come.
Adding an oil to your bath is an easy way to provide your skin with a little pampering and hydration. And the Enriched Apricot Bath Oil Treatment is a great oil to choose with its sweet scent and lovely ingredients.
Not only will it moisturize your skin, it will help heal skin irritations and abrasions. The skin-loving ingredients include Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Vitamin E and Rosemary Extract.
Simply pour some oil under running water into your tub to soak in, or apply directly to your skin after your soak to hydrate your skin.
If your nails and cuticles always look dry and damaged, Tropical Blend Cuticle and Nail Salve is a great product to fix that. All you need to do is rub a bit of the salve into your nail bed and cuticle once a day (or whenever they look dry) and you'll instantly see results.
It's a thick consistency, similar to a lip balm, so a little bit goes a long way. It's full of skin-soothing ingredients such as sweet almond oil, beeswax, vitamin e, cocoa butter and mango butter.
We all hate bug bites, but I'm pretty sure that we all hate using bug spray, too! Who like smelling like that? But now you can keep the bugs away from you while smelling great, too.
BugNix Insect Repellent Salve doesn't use harmful ingredients like most bug sprays use. It's 99% natural formula uses the following ingredients to send bugs running: Citronella Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Cedar Oil and Rosemary Oil. It goes on easy thanks to the Olive Oil and Vitamin E.
You don't have to stink to repel bugs! Just use what nature already gives us.
