Baby it’s cold outside – but that’s no excuse for rough, ashy, patchy skin! Skincare is more than just facemasks and zit cream. After all, you’ve got skin from you head to your toes, and you better be takin’ good care of it! This month, MUVA was kind enough to give us a peek at her body care stash. Here are the spoils!

The Deep Cleanse
We all need a good scrub down every once in a while. MUVA’s absolute favorite way to get clean after gettin’ dirrrty? The Hot Southern Mess Soap by Bathouse Soapery & Calderium ($8 – featured in the August Amber Rose Box). Each bar is hand-crafted and beautifully marbled, but what sets it apart is the scent – a blend of poppy, pomegranate, osmanthus, and sugar cane. Formulated with fresh spring water, organic coconut oil, organic sustainable palm oil, and activated charcoal, this bar is gorgeous and super cleansing. MUVA says lather up!
The Clean Shave
If you choose to shave, you need the proper tools. Most shower gels, soaps and shaving creams have a high pH, while many specially formulated “intimate washes” have a pH that’s too low. A too-high or a too-low pH can disrupt your skin’s flora and natural pH. DeoDoc Daily Intimate Wash ($15 – featured in the Inaugural Amber Rose Box) was developed by doctors to ensure it is pH balanced, hypoallergenic and 100% body safe. The DeoDoc Shaving Intimate Foam ($22.50 – also featured in the Inaugural Amber Rose Box) always ensures a silky smooth shave. Plus, it’s specifically developed for the extra-sensitive bikini area-skin, so you know its delicate enough for the most sensitive skin.
The Chemical Exfoliator
The O.R.G. Mineral Body Peel ($34 – featured in October’s Amber Rose Box) remains a staple in MUVA’s stash. Why? Nothin’ else gets skin this soft, touchable and oh-so smooth. The spray-on formula is gentle and non-abrasive; simply spray it on and leave it to work for a few seconds. Massage the formula in with your fingertips and watch as the dirt, impurities, and dead skin cells slough away. (Sounds gross, but trust me, it is SO satisfying!) Moisturizing ingredients like allantoin and aloe vera leaf extract condition the skin and leave your bod baby-soft.
The Multitasking Moisturizer
MUVA is famous for her radiant, dewy skin – and not just from the neck up. Amber relies on Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream ($16 – featured in October’s Amber Rose Box) to keep her skin glowing all year round. The cult-favorite formula was invented by a Japanese pharmacist in 1957, and it remains the most popular skin cream in Japan today! This heavy-duty moisturizer features concentrated plant-based glycerin to soothe, hydrate, and nourish dry and stressed skin. The non-greasy formula absorbs instantly and locks in moisture all day long. Slap it on your face, lips, cuticles, knees, elbows, or anywhere that’s dry AF. A little dab goes a long way and the tube will last you ages. MUVA keeps one in her bag for when she’s on the go.
The Body Smoothing Solution
99.9% of the time we all peacefully co-exist with our cellulite. If you have it, chances are you know it’s there and you just go about your life unfazed. After all, there are bigger things to worry about than a few dimples on our thighs. With or without it, you’re gorgeous and sexy and totally f*ckable. However, if your cellulite is something that bothers you, MUVA recommends the Lipo-Lotion by Measurable Difference ($60 – featured in the Inaugural Amber Rose Box) can make everything a bit softer and smoother. Even if you don’t have cellulite, it’s still a fab moisturizer!
The Bomb Dot Com
A skincare routine is a huuuuge part of daily self-care rituals for so many folx. What better way to relax and unwind into some self-care that with a CBD bath bomb? The Kush Queens Love CBD Bath Bomb ($5 – featured in the June Amber Rose Box) is MUVA’s go-to pick. The scent is an intoxicating blend of 100% organic essential oils like lavender, ylang ylang, bergamot, orange, patchouli, and cedarwood. With an added kick of non-psychoactive CBD, the Kush Queen Love CBD Bath Bomb is designed to reduce stress and put you in a sensual state of mind. Alone or with your partner(s), set aside at least 30 minutes for a good soak to experience the full benefits of the Kush Queen’s oil blend. You’ll never wanna take a CBD-free bath again!
