Valentine's Day with man’s best friend:
Have some cuddle time scheduled with your furry friend? Indulge them in coconut oil bliss with a thorough brushing followed by a moisturizing rub with Skinny. Because of its antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antifungal qualities, coconut oil is the ideal conditioner for your pet and his delicate skin. It’s the perfect remedy for dry, cracked paws, too!
Let’s be real, though. There’s only one sure-fire way to your dog’s heart, and that’s through his stomach.

This February 14th, Skinny has got you covered with a full collection of beautifying essentials to exfoliate away your worries and soothe your mind, body, and soul.

While in the tub, don’t forget to have our decadent Sugar Scrub on hand for rubbing away impurities, naturally. After, indulge by sweeping our Lavender Facial Oil over your face and neck. The relaxing scent will have you absolutely head over heels.
Before pressing play on your favorite Valentine’s flick, spoon out some Skinny Peppermint Oil Pulling Oil for a 20-minute swish. Oil pulling is known for its mood-boosting and breath freshening benefits. When finished, spit into trash, brush your choppers, and admire your even healthier smile.
