fave products // tata harper body scrub & balm

I'm back with more Tata Harper goodies, and his time, it's all about the body! With all the attention given to the skin on your face these days, it's easy to forget about pampering your body. Regular exfoliation and hydration are key, so you can keep those limbs baby soft! I like to keep my Tata Harper Smoothing Body Scrub in the shower for a totally spa-like exfoliation treatment while I cleanse. It's strong but gentle, and helps to fight dull, uneven, and rough skin using Tata's special biodegradable multi-particle polishing complex. It's sure to leave your skin super smooth and glowing! PS- try it out before shaving to help open up the root and soften your hair too! 

Following a scrub, I love to lather up with a thick, hydrating cream. Tata Harper's Redefining Body Balm is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, leaving your skin feeling totally nourished and protected, but not greasy in the least. Anyone with stretch marks or scarring can greatly benefit this firming balm as well, since it's got a proprietary blend of six natural butters working their magic to help make these less noticeable! As with all Tata's products, every ingredient is 100% natural and non-toxic, making these equally great for those with sensitive skin like me :)

fave products // dr. hauschka arnica body oil


If you're looking for something other than your typical body lotion to keep your skin soft and supple, something that truly moisturizes your skin, this is the product for you. Dr. Hauschka Birch Arnica Energizing Body Oil has been a godsend ever since I first received it as a gift a few months ago. It revives the body & awakens the mind after any sort of strenuous activity when your body really needs the rejuvenation. Plant extracts and jojoba oil come together to create a refreshing & hydrating oil that absorbs quickly and won't leave you feeling greasy. As someone with sensitive skin, I can honestly say that this serves its purpose & then some, without irritating my skin in the least. Even better is that this product is free of parabens, dyes, fragrances & preservatives, and the brand does not test on animals! If you try it out, be sure to let me know what you think!


workout routine


I started going to Pure Barre at my local studio in Williamsburg about a year and a half ago. I do have a gym in my apartment building, and before Pure Barre, I was the type who didn't really believe in paying for exercise classes, since I already had a small, but adequate space so close to home. However, I was tempted by the studio's discounted new member special, and haven't looked back since! I've now taken around 300 classes, and feel better than ever about my body. Pure Barre is high-intensity, but low-impact, and I love the focus on small, isometric movements. You end up working tiny little muscle groups that you probably never would have otherwise! The instructors at the Williamsburg studio are great- they learn your name quickly, are super encouraging, and are very helpful when it comes to hands-on corrections. We work each muscle group, from arms to thighs to butt to abs, and stretch in between while the muscles are warm to promote long & lean muscles. I'm definitely much stronger and more flexible now than I ever have been. Trust me, my splits used to be a straddle, or in other words non-existent, but now I can easily do the splits on both sides! If you've never tried them before, I highly recommend barre-style workouts. My studio also recently launched Platform classes, which add a great cardiovascular aspect to your typical Pure Barre workout. I've only taken a few Platform classes so far, but am already starting to love it! Stay tuned to the GLOW page for a Get Fit with Britt demo series coming soon, and lets "lift. tone. burn" together!
