Hi there, my darlings! Bright and early this morning, as always as part of our featured event, I'd like to share with you my review of a few products from our featured indie, Chloe Meranda! Chloe sent me a selection of bath and body products including a lip scrub, cuticle oil, hand balm and face wash. Read on for my thoughts on these all-natural, handmade products!
Vanilla Bean Lip Scrub
This is a vanilla scented/flavored lip scrub. I use it daily and again every time I wear lipstick. It is an exfoliator but it is a gentle one. It removes dead skin cells and smooths out skin without causing irritation. It smells divine and is completely edible. We recommend you follow up with some of our yummy lip balm.
Ingredients : olive oil, honey, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon
Of the 4 products I was sent, I have to say this was my favorite! I love a good scrub but often, my lips are VERY neglected. I do use a lip balm regularly but I almost never exfoliate. I love how soft and smooth my lips felt with just one use--I'd definitely recommend using this before you wear those tricky lipstick shades, especially in the super matte formulas!
Fast absorbing, moisture locking cuticle oil. Jam packed with all the good oils your skin needs to repair and hydrate your cuticles.
Ingredients : vitamin e, jojoba, castor oil, grape seed oil, olive oil
I've tested a lot of cuticle oils in my day and I gotta say, I was really impressed with this one! My biggest pet peeve with cuticle oils is the greasiness they often leave behind--that stuff gets EVERYWHERE and looks awful in photos, which is a big deal when you're swatching and taking photos of 12 polishes a night! This one is absolutely fast-absorbing and really moisturizing. I love how hydrated my cuticles felt after massaging in a little swipe of this oil and this was after another swatchfest! Even though this is unscented, the all-natural oils just give it a fresh, clean scent!
Hand Balm :
Rejuvenate your hands with our moisture sealing hand balm! This is a hard hand balm that requires a bit of warming with your fingers to apply smoothly. It contains various essential oils and those can be adjusted to your liking. Just send us a message. Leaves your hands feeling smooth and silky and absorbs quickly.
Ingredients : beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, essential oils
Oil Face Cleanser :
This is an OIL based cleanser. It is different from normal water based cleansers but very nice on the skin. It contains no alcohol and will cleanse and moisturize even the most sensitive skin. Apply evenly to skin, massage softly into skin, wait 60 seconds and then rinse with warm water.
This is the only product that initially freaked me out! I have combination, acne-prone, sensitive skin and oils are scary! I've only tried this once so far and I have to admit, I used my regular cleanser immediately afterwards because I couldn't handle the oily feeling on my skin. But, I spoke to Chloe, who by the way is very approachable and is happy to answer questions, and she told me how much this cleanser has helped her brother with his acne. So, back to the drawing board! I'm going to give it another go and get back to you guys! In the meantime, I do believe this would be great for makeup removal--no harsh chemicals!
