True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish that came in my December Petit Vour box [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website].

Petit Vour December 2018

Wake up your shower routine and revive dry and dull skin with a blissful aromatic blend of Nicaraguan coffee beans, organic sugar, cold-pressed moringa and a sweet and spicy essential oil blend.   

Fresh Nicaraguan coffee beans, rich in caffeine, firm and tighten skin and gently exfoliate to invite the healthy production of new skin cells.

Moringa is rich in zeatin, known for stimulating cell division, growth, and delaying aging of cells. Moringa is packed with crucial fatty acids and antioxidants that the fight free radicals that cause premature aging.

True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish

I love body scrubs, so I was pretty happy to see one in my December box. This is a coffee and sugar based scrub, but isn’t as messy as some coffee scrubs tend to be. The scent is interesting – you can smell the coffee of course, but it also smells of Rosemary and Peppermint – so very bright and uplifting – perfect for cold, dark mornings!

True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish

Let’s take a look at the ingredients:

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Coffea Arabica (Vega Farmer Roasted Coffee), Sucrose (Sugar), Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Essential Oil, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Essential Oil. 

Even though I tend to avoid products with tea tree oil as it often causes a reaction on my sensitive skin, the concentration in this scrub must be fairly low as it didn’t trigger me at all, thankfully.

True Moringa Rejuvenating Body Polish

I don’t think that the sample size is big enough to gain benefits of firming and tightening of the skin, but it does exfoliate really well and doesn’t leave a gritty or greasy feeling when rinsed off.

Do you like coffee based body scrubs? I mostly prefer sugar or salt based body scrubs.

Alba Botanica Natural Hawaiian Body Cream Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Natural HawaiianBody Cream by Alba Botanica. I’ve previously reviewed the Body Oil. [info in italics taken from well.ca]

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Cream

Signature ingredient: An excellent source of linoleic and linolenic fatty acids, kukui nut oil is packed with fast-penetrating nutrients essential for healthy skin.

Product description: Tropical nut oils rich in essential fatty acids blended in a rich, luxurious body cream to soften, soothe and smooth rough, dry, flaky skin.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Cream

Features and benefits: Blending vanilla, cucumber and arnica extracts, with oils of kukui, macadamia, and safflower plus shea and cocoa butters, our Kukui Nut Body Cream penetrates deep and is absorbed quickly, holding in critical moisture without leaving excess oil. 

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Cream

This is supposed to be Body Cream, but texture-wise it is more of a super rich, body butter. It is beautiful, and thick, super luxurious without feeling heavy or greasy!

The scent is nutty and sweet like the Body Oil – I love the scent!

So amazing for keeping the winter coldness from completely drying my skin out!

And the kicker – I paid $6.99 CAD for it (at Provigo / Loblaws)!

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Buck Naked Soap Company Natural Lotion Bar Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing another bath + body product from Buck Naked Soap Company (thanks Rina!) that was sent to me to try out – the Natural Lotion Bar. I’ve already reviewed the Himalayan Salt Soap and the Geranium + Purple Clay Sugar Scrub [info in italics taken from the Buck Naked Soap Company website]

Buck Naked Soap Company

This bar provides extreme moisturizing with rich shea butter and cocoa butter that soothe and nourish skin. Surprisingly soft and light in texture, with only the natural scent of its base ingredients, you can use anywhere on your face or body that requires some extra TLC.

Buck Naked Soap Company Natural Lotion Bar

This is the ultimate body lotion for sensitive skin types. It has a very minimal ingredient list and has almost no scent.

I love that it is in a solid format, with a great storage tin – perfect for travelling.

Ingredients: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Candeilla (Euphorbia Cerifera) Wax, Butyrosepermum Parkii, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopherol

My skin does really well with shea and cocoa butter based body products as they are rich and super hydrating but not at all heavy or greasy feeling.

Buck Naked Soap Company Geranium + Purple Clay Sugar Scrub Review

Buck Naked Soap Company Geranium + Purple Clay Sugar Scrub

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing another product from Buck Naked Soap Company that was sent to me (thank you Rina!). I’ve already reviewed the Himalayan Salt Soap. [info in italics taken from the Buck Naked Soap Company website]

Buck Naked Soap Company

Geranium + Purple Clay Sugar Scrub gently exfoliates while it cleanses, leaving your skin silky and smooth. Developed with rich, moisturizing Shae and Cocoa Butters, our formula is soap based and packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and the antiaging elements of Brazilian Purple Clay. These natural ingredients help improve skin tone and elasticity. Formulated with fair trade ingredients, this scrub does good for your skin, while doing good for our world.

Buck Naked Soap Company Geranium + Purple Clay Sugar Scrub

Sugar scrubs are one of my favourite bath and body products – this one looks good enough to eat (but it isn’t recommended as it is soap based so it probably would not taste good).

Buck Naked Soap Company Geranium + Purple Clay Sugar Scrub

It exfoliates and moisturizes the skin really well, and the Geranium scent is absolutely gorgeous! Despite being super hydrating, it does not leave any greasy residue on the skin.

Buck Naked Soap Company Geranium + Purple Clay Sugar Scrub

Ingredients: Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Aqua, Sucrose (Sugar), Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Montmorillonite, Kaolin, Mica, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate & Lactobacillus, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil

Buck Naked Soap Company Himalayan Salt Soap Review

Hello, hello!

If you follow me on InstaGram, you will have seen me unboxing my package from Buck Naked Soap Company. All this week I’ll be reviewing the items that I received (thank you Rina!), starting off with their Himalayan Salt Soap. But first, a little bit of info on this cruelty-free Canadian company [info in italics taken from the Buck Naked Soap Company website]

Buck Naked Soap Company

Buck Naked was born out of necessity. When baby Elias, son of Buck Naked founders Rina and John, developed skin irritations from traditional baby products, they soon realized they needed a truly natural alternative. As necessity is the mother of all invention, the Chamomile & Calendula Soap was invented to help soothe the little guy’s skin. With this creation, Rina discovered her passion of formulating skin care products using the purest of ingredients.

Since inception, we’ve introduced a full line of all-natural, vegan, handcrafted skin care products. We’re committed to being chemical-free, using only pure, natural ingredients. On this, we are unwavering: if you can’t (or shouldn’t) eat it, we won’t use it.

As someone with sensitive skin, this really speaks to me.

Let’s take a look at the Himalayan Salt Soap:

Buck Naked Soap Company Himalayan Salt Soap

Softening | Invigorating | Purifying

Himalayan salt helps maintain skin’s natural oil balance, cleaning and drawing out impurities while warm water opens your pores to absorb the benefits. This amazing ingredient is also known to improve moisture, elasticity and softness, and may even reduce the appearance of fine lines and cellulite.

Buck Naked Soap Company Himalayan Salt Soap

Not only does the soap look beautiful, it lathers beautifully and has a subtle scent. It is super gentle, and non-drying. I love that it has invigorating and purifying properties. And it exfoliates without irritating my sensitive skin.

I really like this one, and have added several of the various soaps to my wishlist!

Andalou Naturals Kukui Cocoa Nourishing Body Butter Review

Andalou Naturals KuKui Cocoa Body Butter

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Kukui Cocoa Nourishing Body Butter from Andalou Naturals that came in my September Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Andalou Naturals KuKui Cocoa Body Butter

This luxurious body butter blends argan oil with shea and cocoa butters to nourish, smooth, and soften the appearance of dry skin. Hawaiian kukui, evening primrose, and superfruit antioxidants blended with ultra-hydrating aloe vera help pamper and protect skin’s moisture barrier for an all-over body treatment.

This is such a great body butter – it is thick and super hydrating without being heavy or greasy. It absorbs into my skin quickly, and smells so good. The scent is reminiscent of the Alba Botanica Natural Hawaiian Body Oil but with a hint of cocoa.

It also makes a great hand cream! My hands get dry so easily when the weather starts to cool down, so a ultra-hydrating but non-greasy cream is essential for me.

Andalou Naturals KuKui Cocoa Body Butter

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Purified Water (Aqua), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Capric/Caprylic Triglycerides, Vegetable Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*†, Stearyl Alcohol, Lecithin, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*, Fruit Stem Cells (Malus Domestica, Solar Vitis) and BioActive 8 Berry Complex*, Panthenol, Stearic Acid, Allantoin, Tocopherol, Aleurites Moluccana (Kukui) Seed Oil, Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Bean Extract*, Vanilla Tahitensis Fruit Extract, Argania Spinsosa (Argan) Kernel Oil*, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil*, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract*†, Caramel, Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos) Extract*†, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenethyl Alcohol, Vanilla Isolates, Salvia Sclarea (Clary Sage) Oil* | *Certified Organic Ingredients.

Olverum Bath Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Olverum Bath Oil that came in my September Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour Sept 2018 - Olverum Bath Oil

A unique and luxurious aromatic blend of essential oils which combine to ease stress and relax tension in both mind and body, bringing you back to your complete and natural self.

Olverum Bath Oil is highly concentrated and only half a capful (5ml) is needed per bath. Accordingly, virtually all the oil is absorbed by the skin leaving no greasy residue in the bath after use.

Petit Vour Sept 2018 - Olverum Bath Oil

The Olverum Bath Oil is super concentrated, you only need the smallest amount in the bath. The scent is really nice – the blend of oils all work together really well for a relaxing bath. And the tub isn’t slippery or greasy afterwards, but my skin is hydrated and soft. I really like this one!

Pricewise it is $52 USD for the full size (125 ml), which seems like a lot at first glance, but because it is so concentrated, you would get at least 25 baths from the bottle! I think that this would make a great gift.

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Siberian fir Needle, Lavandin, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Rosemary, Exotic Verbena, True Lavender, Lime, Juniper, and Geranium essential oils.

Thanks for reading and and have a beautiful day! ❤

Alba Botanica Natural Hawaiian Body Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Natural Hawaiian Body Oil from Alba Botanica that I got in my recent mini haul from well.ca. [info in italics taken from well.ca]

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Oil

Find sweet saturation with this nutrient-rich, super-smoothing, fast-absorbing body oil. Kukui nut, high in essential fatty acids, works its magic to nourish, hydrate and protect skin from moisture loss. Sweet almond, coconut, flaxseed and sunflower oils douse skin in silky perfection. Hypo-allergenic.

This is a beautiful and quickly absorbing body oil. No greasiness, just soft and smooth skin. It has a mild nutty scent – and thankfully not coconut scented in any way! I’ve been using this body oil after every shower since my package arrived. My only complaint is that I wish that the bottle had a pump dispenser!

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Oil

Alba Botanica is a Leaping Bunny certified cruelty free company. Most of their products are vegan, with the exception of a few products that contain beeswax or honey – the lip balms, the Hawaiian Smoothing Sugar Cane Body Polish, and Unpetroleum Jelly.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Bar Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Bar that came in my June Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Bar

Renew, revitalize and soften your skin with this cleansing bar formulated with organic, extra virgin, cold-pressed olive oil, coconut oil, and a blend of apple, lemon and aloe juices. Infused with bright citrus notes to leave skin refreshed and glowing.

  • Replenishes & deeply hydrates with organic cold-pressed, extra virgin, olive oil and coconut oil.
  • Rich in antioxidants & Vitamin E.
  • Soothes with organic aloe.
  • For all skin types.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Bar

At first I had thought that this was a facial cleansing bar, but it is actually a body cleansing and exfoliating bar. It is gentle on my skin, and rinses away without leaving a residue feeling and doesn’t dry my skin out.

I don’t find that it exfoliates the skin at all, but I really like this body cleansing soap despite this. The scent is apples and citrus (lemon and orange) – it is mild and not at all overpowering.

The full size is listed at $12 USD on the Petit Vour site, and weighs 4.8 oz.

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Olea Europaea (Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil)*, Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Juice)*, Cocos Nucifera (Organic Coconut Oil)*, Elaeis Guineensis (Sustainably Sourced Organic Palm Oil)*, Sodium Hydroxide, Pyrus Malus (Organic Apple Juice)*, Citrus Limonum (Organic Lemon Juice)*, Vitis Vinifera (Organic White Grape Juice)*, Citrus Sinensis (Orange Oil), Citrus Reticulata (Mandarin Oil), Litsea Cubeba (May Chang Oil), Cinnamomum Camphora (Ho Wood Oil), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Vitis Vinifera (Grape Seed Extract) | *Certified Organic Ingredients.
