Part of our job here is to test products for our lovely readers. With testing comes discovery – and we’ve got some exceptional finds you’ll want to scoop up this Fall. Even better: The new goodies are all under $25.

Dragon Fruit Lip Butter from The Body Shop Foundation
Get silky puckers and help a charity – that’s beauty with a heart! The super moisturizing Dragon Fruit Lip Butter is The Body Shop’s first product that lets gals support a cause of their choice: Center For Great Apes (Animal Welfare), Girls Educational & Mentoring Services (Human Rights), and Turtle Island Restoration Network (Environmental Protection). For every sale of the lip butter in the U.S., 100% of the profits will go to aiding these three groups.

(Perfectly priced at $6.00 and available at your local The Body Shop boutique.)

Peaches are in Season – The Body Shop Special Edition Vineyard Peach Collection
The Vineyard Peach body care range is a heavenly combo of peach-tastic fragrance, luscious texture and velvety smoothness, delivering hours of thirst-quenching moisture and bursting with precious peach kernel oil.

Say hello to peachy soft skin that smells and feels delectable. No biting though!

The collection contains nine different Community Fair Trade ingredients from all over the world, and is perfectly priced: Vineyard Peach Body Butter ($19), Vineyard Peach Body Scrubwith ground peach seeds ($19), Vineyard Peach Shower Gel ($8), and Vineyard Peach Body Lotion ($12).

Fragrance Mists from Vitabath®
A new line of body sprays for a fragrant refresher anytime. Lightweight scents are available from four separate collection – Cupcake Couture, Spa Day, Fruit Fanatic, and In Bloom – and are infused with conditioning vitamins and antioxidants to keep skin healthy and happy. A spritz of Grapefruit Vanilla by day and a dab of Dreamy Pink Frosting at night sounds right.

(Perfectly priced at $9.99 and available at major retailers and boutiques including Ulta Beauty and
Bed, Bath & Beyond.)
