Summer Body Care Essentials

Hello, hello!

The spring weather has finally arrived in Montreal, so I was thinking about my summer body care essentials – besides the obvious one of sunscreen (recently reviewed here).

Summer Body Care Essentials

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Oil (or the Body Cream) for skin hydration (reviewed here and here). I love both the body oil and the cream for year ’round use.

Buck Naked Soap Company Geranium + Purple Clay Sugar Scrub for exfoliating (reviewed here). This was gifted to me, but I will be buying a replacement as soon as I use it up because it is so good!

Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion to give me a natural looking bit of colour to my ghost pale skin (reviewed here). This is one of the few self tanners that I’ve tried that looks natural on me.

Little Barn Apothecary Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil from Little Barn Apothecary that came in my March Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Little Barn Apothecary Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil

Luxurious daily moisturizer crafted with organic skin perfecting oils of sesame, jojoba, avocado and vitamin E for intense moisture and a glistening youthful glow. Formulated for all skin types, non-greasy formula quickly absorbs deep into skin providing vitamins and minerals. An indulgent journey through fields of white sun-drenched blossoms, lightly kissed by delicate pink citrus. Honeysuckle absolute and pink grapefruit essential oils blend to create this perfectly sensual aroma: sweet, mildly citrus, sun-drenched floral. 

Little Barn Apothecary  Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil

It is no secret that I absolutely love body oils. Especially if they are light and non-greasy while being super hydrating. I really love how this body oil soaks into the skin quickly and deeply hydrates without feeling greasy.

Little Barn Apothecary  Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil

I don’t love the scent, but I don’t hate it either – I’m just not a fan of honeysuckle, but the grapefruit notes makes it work. This body oil is available in other scents, so I’d be interested in checking some of them out eventually.

I love that the ingredient list is fairly short:

100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Prunus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Absolute, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Essential Oil, Tocopherols (Vitamin E).

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.

Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil (1), C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Aleurites Moluccana Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil (1), Macadamia, Ternifolia Seed Oil, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Oil (1), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil (1), Tocopherol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Coumarin, Fragrance (Parfum).  [(1) Certified Organic Ingredient]

EiR NYC Sunset Oil Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Sunset Oil from EiR NYC that came in my May Petit Vour subscription box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]

Petit Vour May 2018 Unboxing

An essential for beach bums, this arnica and aloe-infused body oil contains soothing essential oils and vitamins to restore parched skin damaged by the sun, salt, and wind. For everyday use or to be applied post-sun to keep skin extra-moisturized.

The Review: I’ve been using the EiR NYC Sunset Oil since it arrived when I get out of the shower or bath because it smells amazing and my skin is so smooth and hydrated after using! It keeps my legs moisturized all day! I really like this body oil!

Price-wise the full size bottle is $35 USD for 8 oz –  it is little on the spendy side, but not outrageously so as a little goes a long way. My sample was 1 oz, and I’ve gotten several uses out of it, and still have at least one of two uses left before I finish it!

Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | Olive Oil,  Sweet Almond Oil, *Coconut Oil, *Arnica, *Calendula-infusion, Jojoba Oil, *Aloe Vera, Vitamin E,  Lavender, Rose, Geranium and *Chamomille, Essential Oil Blend, *Rosemary Extract. | *Certified Organic Ingredients

Kani Botanicals Moon Milk Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Moon Milk Shimmering Body Oil from Kani Botanicals that came in my October Petit Vour subscription box [info in italics is taken from the Petit Vour website].

Kani Moon Milk

This silky and lightweight oil illuminates with shimmers of gold to complement every complexion. Infused with a bouquet of natural and organic ingredients, this beauty oil protects and moisturizes dry skin leaving you radiantly glowing. It’s captivating scent wraps a bouquet of jasmine blossom and velvety tuberose.

Kani Moon Milk

Jasmine scents are not usually a favourite of mine. It is probably my second most hated scent. That being said, for some reason I actually like the scent of this body oil. I guess that the Tuberose somehow makes the jasmine work for my nose.

Kani Moon Milk

This is a nice body oil, it absorbs quickly into the skin and isn’t greasy feeling, and it smells lovely, but it is too glittery for my liking. Kani Moon Milk

I will use it up though, because I love the scent and how it feels on my skin so I’ll probably have glittery legs this winter, haha!
