Sothys Pro-Youth Body Serum Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Pro-Youth Body Serum / Sérum Jeunesse Corps that was sent to me from Sothys Canada / PozPub. This body serum won a 2019 Beauté Clin d’oeil award in the category of Body Care products! [info in italics taken from the PozPub press release, and the Sothys Canada website]

Sothys Pro-Youth Body Serum / Sérum jeunesse corps

Your essential body routine! A melt-in formula with the appeal of a grapefruit scent combined with the efficiency of a serum to keep your body looking young.

Younger-looking body that appears beautifully lifted. PROVEN EFFICIENCY! Visibly redensified skin: 16% after 28 days and 29% after 56 days!* For 89% of users**: This formula is a real youth serum for the body after 28 days **! A body that appears visibly younger, as though it had been lifted, a smoother and younger-looking décolleté, firmer arms **! * Ultrasound measurement performed on 18 women after 28 days and after 56 days of twice-daily use of Pro-youth body serum –Smoothness / firmness on the thighs. **Study conducted with 19 women who applied the Pro-youth body serum – Smoothness / firmness twice a day for 28 days. Result expressed in % of satisfaction.

Sothys Pro-Youth Body Serum / Sérum jeunesse corps

This is a luxurious body serum, the formulation is very rich, but it soaks into the skin fairly quickly, and keeps it hydrated all day. My skin feels super smooth and stays that way until the next day when I shower and re-apply!

Sothys Pro-Youth Body Serum / Sérum jeunesse corps

The key active ingredients are: M 3.0 Peptides, Sacred Lotus Extract, Evening Primrose Oil, Hyaluronic Acid Substitute, Complex of Vitamins and Omegas 3, 6, and 9.

As for the firming claims, I’ve only used it two weeks thus far, so I can’t really comment on that aspect of the Pro-Youth Body Serum. I’ll try to update this post after a few more weeks of use.

Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion that came in my November Petit Vour box. This is the second product from Lavido that I’ve gotten from my subscription. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion

This rich but lightweight body lotion leaves your skin buttery soft and restored with organic essential oils. Best for all skin types.

I was afraid that this body lotion was going to be strongly scented, but thankfully it is not. It is mildly citrus, with a hint of something floral / herbal underneath (probably the bergamot). The body lotion is nicely hydrating but not at all greasy. I especially like to use it as a hand cream – the sample sized tube is perfect to take in my bag, or leave next to my computer.

Maui Moisture Body Care – Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion Review

Maui Moisture Body Care - Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion

Hello, hello!

I’m back after a short hiatus with a review of a new body care product from Maui Moisture – the Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion that I bought for myself recently. In the past I’ve reviewed some of their hair care line (here and here). [info in italics taken from the Maui Moisture website]

Maui Moisture Body Care - Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion

Deeply quench, soften and renew skin with Maui Moisture’s Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Silicone Free Body Lotion. Creamy shea butter is infused into this hydrating body lotion, blended with rich coconut and macadamia oils. This formula deeply quenches and softens for renewed, silky soft skin. Unlike some other body products that start with deionized water, Maui Moisture starts with a unique blend with aloe vera and is infused with coconut water, the results? Moisturized skin and a healthy-looking glow with every use!

MauiMoisture2

This scent is similar to their Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner. It is super hydrating and doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. It does, however take a little longer to absorb into the skin – so this is not the one to use if I am in a rush. But once absorbed, the hydration is long lasting!

Maui Moisture Body Care - Extra Hydrating + Shea Butter Body Lotion

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Water (Aqua), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Diisopropyl Sebacate, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Polyquaternium-7, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behenyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Ceteareth-20, Glyceryl Stearate, Maltodextrin, Sodium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance (Parfum).

It does contain fragrance, so if you are perfume sensitive, it might not work for you. It doesn’t trigger my allergies / sensitivities, thankfully!

Have you tried any of their body care line?

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Soothing Body Lotion Review

Petit Vour December 2018

Hello, hello!

I was wondering why no one seemed to have liked or commented on this blog post yesterday and I finally figured out why – I forgot to upload it, haha oops!

Today I’m reviewing the 1000 Roses Soothing Body Lotion that came in my December Petit Vour box [info in italics from the Petit Vour website].

Petit Vour December 2018

This ultimate skin food blends emollient rich rosehip and argan oils with shea and cocoa butters to nourish, smooth, and soften the appearance of dry skin. Soothing rosewater delights the senses as superfruit antioxidants and ultra-hydrating aloe vera help protect and uplift skin’s moisture barrier for a luxurious, all-over body treatment.

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Body Lotion

Hello, roses! If you don’t like roses, then this is not for you.

I love true rose scents so this is dreamy. I really like the body butters and lotions from Andalou Naturals that I’ve tried so far – they are rich without feeling greasy or waxy.

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Body Lotion

Lowen’s Natural Skincare Reviews Part 2 – Shampoo is Betta + Rub It In Why Don’t Ya!

Lowen's Natural Skincare Shampoo is Betta and Rub It In Why Don't Ya!

Hello, hello!

Lowen's Natural Skincare

Today I’m continuing with my reviews of some of the products that came in my awesome PR package from Canadian company Lowen’s Natural Skincare (Part 1 and company info is here). Today’s reviews are of Shampoo is Betta (vegan hydrating shampoo) and Rub It In Why Don’t Ya! (face, hand & body lotion).  [info in italics taken from the Lowen’s Natural Skincare website]

Onto the shampoo:

Lowen's Natural Skincare Shampoo is Betta

Shampoo is Betta! Gentle Vegan Hydrating Shampoo is a natural, vegan sulfate-free coconut based cleanser that is extremely gently yet incredibly effective.  It will effectively clean your hair and replenish it with hydrating unrefined, cold pressed locally sourced hemp seed oil. For extra conditioning we’ve added provitamin B5 (AKA Panthenol) as well as oat oil, with the latter providing exceptional activity in preventing itchiness and dryness (dandruff).

This shampoo is incredibly thick and lathers well despite being a sulfate free formula. It cleans my colour-treated hair well, and doesn’t strip the colour as it is super gentle and non-drying.

Lowen's Natural Skincare Shampoo is Betta

Ingredients: Coco-Betaine (Coconut based cleanser) & Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (Coconut based cleanser), Aqua, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Oleosomes, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (Coconut based cleanser), Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Panthenol, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil.

The shampoo also smells amazing without being over-scented – with rosemary and peppermint being the main scents that my nose can identify. It rinses out nicely and doesn’t leave a filmy residue, leaving my hair clean, soft and hydrated.

Onto Rub It In Why Don’t Ya! the face, hand and body lotion with the best name ever!

Lowen's Natural Skincare Rub It In Why Don't Ya!

I formulated Rub it in Why Don’t Ya (RIIWDY) formulated specifically for our daughter Lowen back when she was barely walking.  It is safe, effective and long lasting and particularly great for those with sensitive skin. Our natural is paraben free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, contains no added fragrances and we only use minimal preservation.  Try it. We’re confident you’ll love it!

Another sensitive skin dream product! It really is long lasting – I’ve been using this more as a body lotion than as a face lotion after a bath or shower and it keeps my skin hydrated all day!

Lowen's Natural Skincare Rub It In Why Don't Ya!

Ingredients: Beeswax (Calgary, AB), Fair Trade Certified Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Distilled Water, Cetyl Alcohol,  Euxyl 9010 (preservative),  Rosemary Oil, Certified Organic Non-GMO Cold Pressed Canola Oil (High River, AB), Lecithin (Non-GMO source) , Cold Pressed Non-GMO Camelina Seed Oil (Saskatoon, SK), Polysorbate 80 (Vacuum Distilled – 1,4 dioxane free), Vegetable Glycerin, Vegetable Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Xanthan Gum

This lotion has a minimal ingredient list with less than 20 easily identifiable ingredients and no added fragrance, so it smells like what it is made of – very mild.

Lowen's Natural Skincare Shampoo is Betta and Rub It In Why Don't Ya!

I love both the shampoo and the face, hand and body lotion!

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.

Buck Naked Soap Company Natural Lotion Bar

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.

Nova Scotia Fisherman

Nova Scotia Fisherman

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing two products from Nova Scotia Fisherman. Did you know that I was born in Nova Scotia?

I was curious about this brand for awhile now, I’d seen the soaps and lip balms the last time I was in Nova Scotia. And then in August, Dal from LittleBeautyLoves and Stashy from StashMatters both reviewed some of their products so I knew that I had to try this brand. I could have ordered directly from Nova Scotia Fisherman, but since I was already placing an order at well.ca to replace some staples, I would just add some products to the cart.

Nova Scotia Fisherman

About the company:

Nova Scotia Fisherman is a family and friend owned company in the heart of Nova Scotia. We are proud to produce a 100% Natural Body care line of products that are infused with Kelp from the shores of Canada’s Ocean Playground, Nova Scotia. […] We use local kelp in all of our products. This slippery ingredient found all along our coast line was used for many purposes in Nova Scotian history. It was a fertilizer, banked alongside houses to keep out winter winds, and used as packing material for shipping lobster.  Nova Scotia Sea Kelp, harvested off the pristine shores, Nova Scotia Kelp (Fucus Vesiculosus ) has amazing anti-aging properties and has been used in health and beauty products since ancient times. It contains a bounty of ingredients that enriches and soothes dry skin.

Now that the weather is getting colder, my hands and cuticles get so very dry, so I knew that I wanted to get the Hand and Body Lotion and the Cuticle Rescue.

Onto the reviews:

Nova Scotia Fisherman

Here’s what the website says about the Nova Scotia Fisherman Lotion:

Our ocean lotion is a premium all natural product that is a real treat for your whole body. You will fall in love with its creamy smooth texture. It is made from plant and tree derived oils and skin friendly botanical extracts. Nova Scotia Fisherman lotion improves skin’s texture, leaving it looking and feeling rejuvenated.

I’ve been using the lotion on my hands every day since my package arrived. It is super hydrating and fast absorbing without being greasy. The scent is very natural and mildly herbal. My hands are already so much softer!

Ingredients:

Aqua, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Zea Mays (Corn) Oil*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil*, Glyceryl Caprylate (and) Glyceryl Undecylenate, Cetyl Alcohol, Fucus Vesiculosus Powder*, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Sambucus Nigra (Elder) Extract, Malva Sylvestris (Mallow) Extract, Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey), Tocopherol, Parfum, Xanthan Gum                                     ** Certified Organic Ingredient

 

Nova Scotia Fisherman

And here’s what the website says about the Nova Scotia Fisherman Cuticle Rescue:

Seabuckthorn is loaded with Vitamin C which encourages collagen production and also softens and moisturizes your cuticles. Great cuticle health means healthier nails, less trouble with hangnails and infection. It really “kelps” to keep your digits in order.

I love this stuff! Even more than I loved the Burt’s Bees Cuticle Butter! The scent is mild and pleasant, more herbal than the Hand & Body Lotion. My cuticles are no longer dry and raggy looking!

Ingredients:

Olea Europea (Olive) Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Cera Alba (Beeswax)*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil infused with Fucus Vesiculosus (Nova Scotia Sea Kelp)*, Hippophea Rhamnoides (Virgin Seabuckthorn) Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
*Certified Organic

Have you tried anything from Nova Scotia Fisherman? I want to try the soaps, lip balms and scrub next!
