Immersion Botanica Rosemary & Lavender Cleansing Oil

Leaves your skin prefectly hydrated!

I had never tried a facial cleansing oil before and I was sceptical. After trying this Rosemary and Lavender Cleansing Oil, I will never go back to commercial face wash products. It smells great, feels amazing and leaves your skin perfectly hydrated! Not too oily and not too dry. I love it.

Krysta

Gentle but effective!

I use this as an everyday cleanser before bed. It is gentle but effective in removing basic makeup and cleansing my skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated, unlike commercial products that left my sensitive skin feeling tight and red.

Alli

So soothing!

This is only thing I use on my skin after removing makeup before bed. It’s gentle and hydrating, and the scent is so soothing!

2. Lowen’s Natural Skincare – You Sure Clean Up Nice! – Face and Body Wash

Lowen's You Sure Clean Up Nice! Face and Body Wash

My face feels smooth for hours!

Great face and body wash. I’m always skeptical of cleansers that claim they’re good enough for body and face but this one really is. I hate when face wash doesn’t rinse off well or body wash leaves too much residue. This one does the job without the feeling of gunk left on you. I also have pretty sensitive skin (especially on the face) and it felt good going on and rinsing off. Like other Lowen’s products it has a fun name

Yuka

Highly recommended!

This product is another example of how well Lowen’s does texture. I love how smooth their products are. Although this product is meant as a face/body wash, I only tried it on my face. It didn’t quite lather the way I expected but I didn’t care because…smooth! Like other Lowen’s products I’ve tried, the scent is au naturale and barely there. No sneezing or skin irritations, which is a big plus in my world.

Sue

A great “everything” cream!

Nice scent and lathers well, face felt nice, not too dry after

Would definitely recommend!

This face cream has a quiet fresh smell.
I like the feel of it on my face.
It leaves my face feeling smooth for hours.
Love-Love this glorious product.

Cynthia A

Melts right in to my skin!

Really appreciate finding this product. I am cautious about what products I choose for health reasons. Good Karma four in one face cream has given me the moisturizing results and healthy skin that I have been wanting for a long time. I recommend the product highly.

Ellie

Great moisturizer!

When used after the G.K. Toner, this is a great “everything” cream. I use it morning and night all over my face for smooth, refreshing, and glowing skin. A really great product!

Say YES To The Miracles Of Argan Oil

Say YES To The Miracles Of Argan Oil

 You may have heard about argan oil, especially if you’re one to prefer natural skincare products. On beauty and personal care labels, you’ll see the ingredient labelled like this: Argania Spinosa (Argan) kernel oil.

The Miracle Oil of Nature

Argan oil: a rich, cold-pressed oil that is harnessed from the fruit kernel of the Moroccan Argan tree. It has many uses in cosmetics, working wonders for dry or aged skin, damaged hair or fragile nails. Regularly using argan oil for moisturizing your skin can reduce the amount of sebum, naturally suppressing oiliness and acne. That being said, it also helps keep your insides healthy! The edible version of hand pressed oil is a good antioxidant, it has hepatoprotective properties that can protect the liver and it can also prevent spikes in blood sugar levels.

If you don’t yet own products with argan oil, consider adding one of the following products in your skincare collection!

 

1.Immersion Botanica – Jojoba & Sea Buckthorn Facial Nutrient Serum

Replenish important skin nutrients with these oils rich in antioxidants, photo protective, regenerating vitamins A, B, C, E, and omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids.

Can’t live without!

This is one product I can’t live without!! It is super moisturizing without leaving my sensitive skin oily or greasy. Would highly recommend!

Alli

A little goes a long way!

I love how this product works on my skin. I pair it with the Fruit & Grains Facial Cleanser and I really like how it doesn’t leave my face oily–if I use the right amount! Honestly a little goes a long way so don’t use too much!

It makes my sking so soft and smooth!

I love to put this on anytime of day, it is not greasy or oily, and absorbs into the skin quickly! It makes my skin so soft and smooth! I use it every day.

Maureen

My all-time favorite!

This is my all-time favorite moisturizer. I used to use coconut oil until I discover this. Heroin Hottie Balm absorbs much quicker and actually plumps my skin a little. I love it! Recommend it to anyone.

Lee-Anne H.

Without a doubt the BEST!

I have tried dozens of moisturizers over many years. Heroine is without a doubt the BEST product I have come across. Eliminates that dried out feeling after, after washing your face.

1.Shea Butter Market – Shea Lips

Shea Butter Market Shea Lips

Leaves the skin fresh and clean!

Great lip moisturizer. The dry cold weather gets me every year. This product helped soothe my dry cracked lips. Note: I’m a lip balm veteran – used blistex, vaseline, etc.

Rob

Felt like I was at a spa!

The citrus flavour is really great! A little bit thick in consistency but a little does go a long way. My only note would be that I do need to reapply a little more frequently then I do with something like vaseline.

 

Sarah

So gentle and refreshing!

Great scent, but I had to reapply quite often.

2. Bee Real – Lip Balm

  • Rating: Rated 5.00 out of 5 (14 Reviews)
  • Certification: CertClean

Feels natural on the scalp!

I use this in both winter and summer. It keeps my lips moist in winter, no cracks and you don’t have to keep re-applying after a drink or food. Summer time protection from the sun is on point. My kids use them in winter too!

Debora A L.

I have sleep apnea and often wake up with dry cracked lips from using the mask. Since I’ve been using this lip balm my lips are always smooth and crack free. My fav is the peppermint.

Janice H.

Recommended!

I use this all year round; I buy a dozen at a time and have one at work, in the car, my purse, and every coat pocket! It’s the perfect consistency and not greasy. I love the peppermint

3. Om Organics – Lip Butter

  • Rating: 4.78 out of 5 Stars (18 Reviews)

Fantastic!

This is super hydrating and it has become my go-to for whenever my lips feel dry! The ingredients are all natural, and the effect the product has on my lips is amazing

Tasneem

Gentle yet effective!

It is a nice smooth lip butter. I only gave 4 stars because I found it still wasn’t enough to keep my lips hydrated in the winter and I still needed to moisturize them.

Candice

I don’t even need foundation!

I keep this at my desk to use throughout the day. It’s really lovely to apply (tastes great and goes on nice and smooth) however I don’t find that it lasts long enough for me.

On top of that, it can sharpen the brain, provide immune support, and even be used to get rid of that stubborn cellulite. As we continue to become more health conscious, we want to know the best natural products to use and coconut oil is definitely one of them.

Always Bearded - Begamot & Ylang with Distilled Cedarwood

Feels natural on the scalp!

My hubby tried this product, and while he doesn’t have a beard, he’s used to using natural products which are often great on his skin but way to greasy for his liking. He was happy to report that this cream does the job without being super slippery .. just a great comfortable moisturizer without all the mess.

Gail

Gave my hair a natural look!

I really liked this product, especially in comparison to the next one. Firstly, I have a super curly and short beard. This cream has a splendid smell and a great texture to it. It doesn’t stick to your hand (like oil does), and yet it softens the beard a bit which is nice.

Mohamed F.

Recommended!

I typically use a beard oil with a strong scent (and my girlfriend likes). I’ve tried other products and this was the only one that did seem to leave the beard softer. I’m not sure if it was better than the beard oil, but it was a nice change. The only downside was I found I needed to use a lot of it to get it everywhere.

Moor Spa Massage Balm Purifying / Revitalizing

Fantastic!

I like the smell of this product a lot, but I find on my skin it comes out a little greasy! I have extremely dry skin on my hands (I used it for a hand massage) and it just kind of sat on top. I love the smell and how it melts, but it didn’t absorb much for me.

Daniela

Gentle yet effective!

Not greasy as long as you give it a good massage. Great as a night cream!

Melanie

I don’t even need foundation!

Tried the revitalizing balm. As the descriptions says… as soon as you touch the product, it melts into oil. It has a nice unique citrus-y scent, and leaves the skin a bit shiny. It absorbed okay for me, so it gets 4 stars. I’d recommend this balm.
