Those of you who are in my age group – 50 years and older – must remember Ten-O-Six Lotion by Bonnie Bell. I know I was always stocking up on these zit-fighting products, and you could definitely find them on the shelves of almost every other teen in the late ’70’s and through the ’80’s. I had no idea that this line was still around! You can find it at all sorts of drugstores as well as Ulta. Now it’s called Formula 10.0.6, and they say they are ‘Modern skin care, 87 years in the making.’
The original formulas for some of the products are still available – in fact there is an entire collection called ‘Originals’. In addition to the terrific array of very reasonably priced facial skin care, Formula 10.0.6 also has some pretty impressive body products. I have been testing the Smooth Me Over Moisturizing Body Wash in Grapefruit + Coconut ($6.99 USD).
I am a big coconut lover, but I never would have paired coconut with grapefruit. However…it works! What a delicious scent. The yummy coconut is a natural with the fresh and clean grapefruit…who would have thought?? The coconut is also wonderfully hydrating for skin, and the grapefruit is a natural exfoliant that is full of antioxidants.
I love sudsing up with this gentle body wash, and it leaves my skin feeling clean but hydrated. This is a large 10 oz tube so it lasts a long time, and for around $7 it is a great drug store buy…just like Bonnie Bell was back in the day. Take a trip down memory lane to check out the Formula 10.0.6 line, and don’t forget the new products like Smooth Me Over Moisturizing Body Wash as well! – Lisa
