Sothys Hydra3HA Hyaluronic Acid Discovery Kit Review

Hello, hello!

I received the Hydra3HA Discovery kit from Sothys Canada / PozPub to test out. Our weather has been super cold so my skin needs a little extra hydration so I was excited to try out this hyaluronic acid based kit.

Sothys Hydra3HA Discovery Kit

The Hydra3HA Hyaluronic Acid Discovery Kit contains three products formulated with triple hyaluronic acid: the Hydrating Youth Cream, the Hydrating Comfort Youth Cream and the Hydra-Smoothing Mask. [info in italics taken from their press release and from the Sothys website]

Sothys Hydra3HA Discovery Kit

 

Well-moisturized skin appears visibly younger and stands up better to the test of time. Driven by the latest in advance research discoveries on its exclusive active ingredient, 1055 boletus extract, Sothys is now renewing its hydration programme with a triple hyaluronic acid.

Goal number one: To immediately restore moisture and protect the skin on a daily basis.

The Hydrating Youth Cream comes in two different textures: the Hydrating Youth Cream (light emulsion, for normal to combination skin) and the Hydrating Comfort Youth Cream (creamy balm, for normal to dry skin). Result: +53% hydration after 3 hours.

Sothys Hydra3HA Discovery Kit - Hydrating Youth Cream

My skin ranges from normal to dry, especially in the winter time, but I decided to test both of the Hydrating Youth Creams out, for several weeks now, and they are super hydrating.

Sothys Hydra3HA Discovery Kit - Hydrating Comfort Youth Cream

I especially like using the lighter Youth Cream in the mornings, under foundation and the balmier Comfort Youth Cream at night. Both play nicely with make-up though, for me it all depends on how much hydration my skin needs on any given day based on how cold the weather is.

Hydra-Smoothing Mask: This creamy mask instantly envelops the skin with softness upon application. The skin is hydrated, smoother, rejuvenated. Result: +60% hydration, and +30% smoothing.

Sothys Hydra3HA Discovery Kit - Hydra-smoothing Mask

I love hydrating masks, you can either wash it off after 15 to 20 minutes, or let it soak into the skin for a super hydration boost. Especially great for the winter weather!

Here’s a little info on the actives (triple Hyaluronic Acids):

1055 Boletus Extract: An exclusive, patented active ingredient from Sothys Advanced Research. Hyaluronic acid booster. Action on the barrier function. Action on moisture flow. Pro-youthfulness action. HPM Hyaluronic Acid in Patch Form + “Quenching” Active Ingredients: Surface action to form a protective film and progressively release the essential components of the NMF. HPM Hyaluronic Acid in Free Form: Selected for its surface protecting and water retaining action.

Sothys Hydra3HA Discovery Kit

As with all Sothys products, they are more scented than I prefer. This line is described as having a floral, aquatic, musky scent. I personally don’t smell any musk (thankfully, I’m not a fan of musky scents). The scent isn’t long lasting and it doesn’t trigger a reaction for me.

Sothys Echappée Parisienne Fall / Winter Makeup Collection

Hello, hello!

Today I’m showing you a few things from the latest makeup collection from Sothys that PozPub sent to me to try out. I received two lipsticks and a liquid liner from their newly launched fall /winter collection titled Echappée Parisienne. The Sothys Fall / Winter Collection is a glamorous and elegant makeup collection, inspired by Paris.

Sothys Fall Winter Makeup Collection

The packaging for both lipsticks is beautiful, a shiny, lacquer type finish that makes it so hard to photograph!

Sothys Fall Winter Makeup Collection

Rouge Intense 236 Bois de Rose Vaugirard (Rosewood) Satin Finish

Sothys Fall Winter Makeup Collection

This is a satin finish lipstick, feels very much like a Bite Beauty lipstick in terms of creaminess. I’ve been wearing this one a lot, it is a beautiful and wearable shade. This is a perfect rosy nude type shade.

Rouge Mat 340 Prune République (Plum) Velvet matte Finish

Sothys Fall Winter Makeup Collection

I have to say that the Rouge Mat Velvet lipsticks are one of the most comfortable matte lipsticks that I’ve ever worn. I really like the shade for days when I want a bolder lip. It is long wearing and highly pigmented.

Calligraphy Liquid Eyeliner

Sothys Fall Winter Makeup Collection - Calligraphy Liner

This is a smudgeproof liquid liner. Once it dries, it does not budge until you remove it! I like the brush tip, it makes it easy to do both fine and thicker lines. A perfect black liquid liner!

Sothys nOctuelle Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream Review

Sothys nOctuelle Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream

Hello, hello!

The weather here in Montreal has been cold, cold, cold! And my skin is not happy, it is drier than normal. When PozPub reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try out the Sothys nOctuelle Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream, I (of course) said yes!  [info in italics taken from Sothys website]

Sothys nOctuelle Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream

Night after night, this concentration of technology with a pleasant fragrance acts deep inside the skin to help it erase the visible signs of daytime damage caused by the environment.

Stabilized Vitamin C – To stimulate cellular activity and visibly reduce the signs of ageing

Detoxifying Complex: Shea Polyphenols and Yeast Extract – To boost the body’s detoxification systems

Extract of Nasturtium rich in A-Glucans – To revive cells through the optimal use of oxygen

Benefits: The skin is smoother as you sleep, and in the morning, appears uncreased and luminous. Wrinkles are smoothed, signs of fatigue seem to be reduce. Youthful radiance appears revived.

After doing my usual skin patch tests on my wrist, and then on my neck or chest, I began using the nOctuelle Detox Cream at night.

I feel that Sothys really shines in their anti-ageing formulations. Your skin will look and feel different when you wake up after using this overnight detox cream. It hydrates and brightens while you sleep.

Sothys nOctuelle Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream

The packaging is heavy plastic, and comes with a little spatula for application.

Sothys nOctuelle Detox Resurfacing Overnight Cream

As with all Sothys skincare that I’ve tried thus far, I find that it is a little more scented than I prefer, but it doesn’t trigger a reaction, and then scent fades quickly as the cream sinks into my skin.

Lowen’s Natural Skincare Reviews Part 5 – In Yo Face! Natural BB Cream

Hello, hello!

Lowen's Natural Skincare

Today I’m continuing with my final review of a  product that came in my awesome PR package from Canadian company Lowen’s Natural Skincare (Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4). Today’s review is on the In Yo Face! Natural BB Cream [info in italics taken from the Lowen’s website]

Lowen's Natural Skincare In Yo Face! Natural Vegan BB Cream

In Yo Face! Natural Vegan BB Cream – Based on the fundamental success of the RIIWDY hand and body lotion (minus the beeswax) In Yo Face! our Vegan BB Cream contains active concentrations of Omega fatty acids (essential acids 3 and 6), Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Niacin (Vitamin B3), Lipoic Acid (Thioctic acid), Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate), Hyaluronic Acid (AKA Hyaluron) and a little Zinc Oxide for a little daytime protection from ‘ole Sol.

lowen's in yo face1

This is not a tinted BB cream. The In Yo Face! Natural Vegan BB Cream is a little on the thick side, similar to a lot of physical / mineral sunscreens – likely due to the Zinc Oxide in its formulation. And yay, it offers some sun protection because of this!

It soaks into the skin fairly quickly and works well to hydrate without being heavy or greasy feeling. I was fairly surprised because usually creams that feel like this tend to take a little longer to absorb into the skin. It works well for my sensitive, normal to dry skin.

Lowen's Natural Skincare In Yo Face! Natural Vegan BB Cream

The IYF! Natural Vegan BB Cream works well as a makeup primer too! I’ve worn it with both minimal makeup (concealer and powder) and with full makeup and it gives my skin a smooth base for makeup.

It contains loads of skin friendly ingredients and the only scent is of what it is made of – which I really like.

Ingredients: Aqua, Cetyl Alcohol, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Zinc Oxide (nano), Glycerin, Canola Oil, Camelina Sativa Seed Oil, Polysorbate 80, Lecithin, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Butter, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Thiotic Acid, Tocopherol, Phenoxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Rosemary Officinalis Leaf Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hyaluronic Acid

Have you tried this BB cream? Do you have a fave BB cream?

Lowen’s Natural Skincare Reviews Part 3 – The All Purpose Balms

Lowen's Natural Skincare Super Salve, Make Room and Vegan Vapor Rub

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 (Here’s the links for parts 1, and 2). Today’s reviews are of three of their All Purpose Balms – Super Salve, Make Room Stretch Mark & Scar Balm, and Vegan Vapor Rub  [info in italics taken from the Lowen’s Natural Skincare website]

First up, Super Salve (all purpose balm):

Lowen's Natural Skincare Super Salve

Super Salve – All Purpose Skin Solution – Lowen’s Super Salve is essentially our Butter Balm but in a pocket sized format.  Just like its larger sibling, our Super Salve is is completely free of petrochemicals, artificial preservatives, colorants or scenting agents. Super salve serves as excellent barrier to irritants as well as being a very effective skin conditioner which means it is great for lips, cuticles, knuckles, heels, tattoos, rashes, chafing and more and small enough to take with you anywhere.  We suggest you don’t go anywhere without this crucial skincare item.

Lowen's Natural Skincare Super Salve

This stuff is awesome! I had a terrible cold over the holidays, and this helped heal my dry, red, irritated nose! I’ve also taken to using it as a cuticle balm since my hands get so dry in the winter.

Ingredients: Beeswax (Calgary, AB), Fair Trade Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil (Philippines), Cold Pressed Non-GMO Camelina Oil (High River, AB), Cold Pressed Grapeseed Oil (Sumerland, BC), Rosemary Oil, Certified Organic Cold Pressed Canola Oil (High River, AB), Vitamin E

Onto Make Room! Stretch Mark & Scar Balm:

Lowen's Natural Skincare Make Room

Make Room was specifically formulated for improving skin elasticity and tone for growing tummies but can also be used for softening superficial scars or even for those hulking out at the gym growing their pecs, delts and biceps. We have also heard customer reports that it also improves the appearance of cellulite…Bonus!

Lowen's Natural Skincare Make Room

This is a nice balm, I used it around my nose when I briefly misplaced (and then found) my Super Salve – and it also worked well to soothe my skin. I don’t have any stretch marks to test it on, but I can imagine that it would work well just based on the skin friendly ingredients.

Ingredients: Beeswax (Calgary, AB), Cetyl Alcohol, Certified Organic Fair Trade Coco Butter, Virgin Organic Coconut Oil (Philippines) , Cold Pressed Non-GMO Camelina Seed Oil (Saskatoon, SK), Rosemary Oil, Lecithin, Cold Pressed Non-GMO Canola Oil (High River , AB), Certified Organic Fair Trade Shea Butter (Ghana), Vitamin E (Natural Source)

And finally Vegan Vapor Rub:

Lowen's Natural Skincare Vegan Vapor Rub

Just like your favorite topical cough and cold body rubs but made better! Our Vegan Vapor Rub formula is 100% natural and preservative free.  Why does this matter?  Well there are many of us out there that would prefer not to use a petroleum based medicated rub.  Sure we grew up our parents slathering on Vicks Vaporub but knowing how simple that product was (and still is) we thought it would be better to come up with an effective product with a vegan ointment base.  It isn’t the easiest thing to do and isn’t the cheapest product to create but we wanted something we were 100% comfortable using in our home.

Lowen's Natural Skincare Vegan Vapor Rub

Perfect timing with this balm – I used it every night until my cold was gone. It really helped me breathe at night as I was so congested. And it doesn’t make my skin feel gross like the petroleum jelly based ones. I love the smell of this!

Ingredients: Certified Organic Cold Pressed Non-GMO Canola Oil (High River, AB), Fair Trade, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Certified Organic Candelilla Wax, Camphor, Menthol, Certified Organic Spearmint Leaf Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary Oil, Limonene*, D-Limonene**. (*present at 0.0031% – naturally occurring component of camphor – listed to comply with EU labelling standards as an allergen, **0.0088% naturally occurring component of spearmint oil – listed to comply with EU labelling standards as an allergen)

Do you use these types of balms / salves?

Lowen’s Natural Skincare Reviews Part 1 -You Sure Clean Up Nice and Get Toned

Lowen's Natural Skincare You Sure Clean Up Nice & Get Toned Vegan Facial Toner

Hello, hello!

if you follow me on InstaGram, you will have seen my unboxing of the awesome box of goodies from Canadian brand Lowen’s Natural Skincare. When the owner reached out to me, of course I was interested in testing out some things – thank you! [info in italics taken from Lowen’s Natural Skincare website]

Lowen's Natural Skincare

A little background on the company:

Lowen’s Natural Skincare is a family-owned and operated skin care company based in Calgary, Alberta. Conceived by a veteran Pharmacist committed to using organic, fair-trade, and/or locally-sourced ingredients, Lowen’s creates unique skin care products that are safe, effective, long-lasting, and affordable.

Their products are made based on four main principals:

  1. Safe for us = safe for you: We ensure that our ingredients are thoroughly evaluated for safety, effectiveness, environmental impact, and animal welfare by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).
  2. Keeping it simple:  What this means is that any single ingredient can provide multiple benefits within a particular product.  This keeps our ingredients list to a minimum number of “simple” components.
  3. Do no harm: We do not test our products on animals nor do we purchase ingredients that have been tested on animals.
  4. Sensible sourcing: We source local, certified organic and/or fair trade ingredients whenever possible and continually review and refine our practices to adhere to the above. If we are unable to find an ingredient close to home, we expand our search to find unrefined, organic, fair-trade ingredients

So yeah, knowing how I feel about skincare and cosmetics, you can see why I was so excited about testing things out! Because there were so many things in the box, I’ve decided to break it up into several parts – today I’m reviewing the You Sure Clean Up Nice (Face & Body Cleanser) and the Get Toned Vegan Facial Toner).

Starting with You Sure Clean Up Nice (Face & Body Cleanser) – to be honest I cringed a little at the thought of using the same cleanser for both face and body. But after doing my usual patch test for sensitivity, I tested it out on both my face and body but I’m going to talk more about using it as a facial cleanser.

Lowen's Natural Skincare You Sure Clean Up Nice Face & Body Cleanser

You Sure Clean up Nice!  Facial Cleanser is simply luxurious and like no other cleanser you’ve tried. We have formulated You Sure Clean up Nice! for all skin types but extra care was taken to ensure that it will be gentle on the most sensitive of skin types. (like all of our products).

Lowen's Natural Skincare You Sure Clean Up Nice Face & Body Cleanser

This cleanser is a sensitive skin dream! It is super gentle, but cleans really well – removes makeup without leaving my skin feeling tight or dry and doesn’t leave a residue. Because it is formulated for sensitive skin, it has no added fragrance, so it smells like its ingredients (basically, it barely smells like anything)! This would be great to take for travelling since it can be used on face and body.

Now onto the toner – Get Toned:

Lowen's Natural Skincare Get Toned Vegan Facial Toner

Get Toned! is a very clean, safe and simple facial toner. Having only 8 ingredients, they have been carefully selected to get the job done! Formulated with the refreshing and calming effects of lavender floral water, combined with the moisturizing and conditioning powers of  glycerin and Hydresia®.  Get Toned follows our mission perfectly as it is truly safe, effective…better!

Lowen's Natural Skincare Get Toned Vegan Facial Toner

I love facial toner / facial mists. This one has minimal ingredients and it is so refreshing to use after I wash my face. It smells beautiful due to the lavender. Very gentle, and hydrating.

So there you have it, part one of my Lowen’s Natural Skincare reviews. More to follow this week! Have you tried anything from Lowen’s?

Les Secrets de Sothys / Sothys Secrets Gift Set Review

Hello, hello! I recently received a beautiful gift set from Sothys Canada / PozPub of the new Les Secrets de Sothys / Sothys Secrets which contains La Crème (Cream) as well as La Creme Yeux-Lèvres (Eye and Lip Cream) from the Prestige / Premium line. I have reviewed the Crème Jeunesse from their regular line and used it all last winter. [info in italics taken from Sothys website and from the booklet included in the gift set]

Les Secrets de Sothys / Sothys Secrets - La Crème and La Crème Yeux-Lèvres

Les Secrets de Sothys line is made with “latest-generation active ingredients for a complete resolution that protects and visibly reveals the skin’s youthfulness”. Let’s take a look at the science behind the products:

  1. To visibly preserve youthfulness via Telomere Innovation (DNA sequences) with Red Algae, rich in Linear Galactanes to preserve cellular longevity, and via Vitagene Innovation with Peach Leaf Glucans to strengthen the skin’s natural defences.
  2. To visibly reveal youthful skin via Double Action Innovation on Lox Protein  and Intracellular Glycation and Cytoskeleton Innovation with Extract of Retinol-Like Chicory and Hypnea Algae Rich in Galactanes for skin structure (epidermis and dermis) and elasticity.

Packaging: 

Les Secrets de Sothys / Sothys Secrets - La Crème and La Crème Yeux-Lèvres

The packaging of the gift set is beautiful, with a double door opening and a black velvet flocked interior. The plastic jars are heavy and look beautiful.

Les Secrets de Sothys / Sothys Secrets - La Crème and La Crème Yeux-Lèvres

La Creme / The Cream:

Les Secrets de Sothys / Sothys Secrets - La Crème

This exceptional youth skincare reveals some of its secrets as soon as it is applied: its wonderful active texture forms a biomimetic satin film with a lifting effect on the skin’s surface and its delicate fragrance is an invitation to a feeling of well-being.

Day after day, this universal cream treats the skin to a complete action on youth to combat the visible signs of ageing. Record efficiency, day after day: – Smoothing: +37% (experimental scoring*) – Improved firmness: +30% (clinical measurements using a cutometer*) * on 20 people after 30 days of twice daily application

SothysSecrets7

This cream is super rich, but fast absorbing, great for normal to dry skin. I think that it might be too a little  heavy if you have oily skin. It leaves the skin with a very satiny feeling and seems to plump out / blur fine lines and wrinkles as it smooths the skin. It can be used as both a day cream and a night cream.

The Cream, however, is a little more scented than I prefer, but the scent does fade to nothing very quickly. It is a peachy, slightly floral scent. Thankfully it does not trigger a reaction in my sensitive skin.

La Crème Yeux-Lèvres / Eye and Lip Cream:

Les Secrets de Sothys / Sothys Secrets - La Crème Yeux-Lèvres / Eye and Lip Cream

This balm with a melting texture creates a smoothing film on the skin’s surface, bringing about a feeling of comfort and an immediate lift effect in the eye and lip contour.

Day after day, this 2-in-1 formula targets the specific problems of these two areas of the face which are extremely sensitive to ageing. Results that are visible: Number of wrinkles: -30% after 15 days and -38% after 30 days* Dark circles: -25% after 30 days** Puffiness: -17% after 30 days** * Instrumental measurements. Average results on the eye contour from 21 people after twice-daily use. ** Expert scoring. Average results on the eye contour from 21 people after twice-daily use.

Les Secrets de Sothys / Sothys Secrets - La Crème Yeux-Lèvres / Eye and Lip Cream

Now this targeted eye and lip cream is super rich. I’ve mostly only been using it as an eye cream, and it does help with fine lines and puffiness. It does help to brighten the undereye area somewhat, but I until I use it for a longer time, I won’t comment on dark circle effectiveness.

The Eye and Lip Cream plays nicely with my Becca Brightening Undereye Concealer, and  it does not have any added fragrance – which I like a lot – which means that it does not irritate my sensitive eyes.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Disclosure: PR samples, however my opinion is based on my personal experience of using the products.

 

Wise Men’s Care Reviews

Wise Men's Care

Hello, hello!

If you follow me on InstaGram, you will have seen me unboxing a package from Montreal based Wise Men’s Care (& Tök Communications).

Wise Men's Care

Although the line is marketed for men, I tested everything out myself, and I got the Mister to try things out as well. [info in italics taken from the Wise Men’s Care website]

Wise caters to a new generation of conscious consumer; those who want thoughtful, carefully-sourced, and natural personal care products down to the last ingredient and packaging detail. 
Artificial fragrances and colors, MEA, DEA or TEA, parabens, phthalates, and sulfates will never be found in our products.  Natural, healthy and cruelty-free ingredients will always be the core of our products. 

Wise Men's Care

In the box there were several items – Birch Bark Daily Shampoo, Glacier Clay Pomade, Sea Kelp Soap, and a Neem Wood Comb. The packaging is eco-conscious and recyclable.

Wise Men's Care

Onto the review! Starting with the Birch Bark Daily Shampoo – I love that they included a 100 ml travel size ($20 CAD) and a 475 ml refill pouch ($34 CAD).

Wise Men's Care Birch Bark Daily Shampoo

White Birch Bark extract is a sustainable botanical extract found in the Canadian Boreal forest and renowned for its high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants. Less foamy and artificial than most shampoos, the unique array of essential oils found in this shampoo offer both aromatherapy and an exceptional cleansing experience. You will also enjoy active ingredients known to help encourage healthy and revitalized hair.

Other key ingredients include eucalyptus extract, keratin; cedarwood, clary sage, rosemary and geranium leaf essential oils.

Wise Men's Care Birch Bark Daily Shampoo

This shampoo doesn’t lather super well, but manages to deep clean regardless. It is super gentle, and leaves my hair feeling soft and clean. And it smells amazing – very earthy and woody. I love the essential oil blend that they used for this shampoo!

Next is the Glacier Clay Pomade in a 60 ml reusable glass container ($32 CAD) – the Mister shaves his head so he just doesn’t have enough hair to test out the pomade.

Wise Men's Care Glacier Clay Pomade

This pomade is made with hand-picked organic glacial marine clay from northern British Columbia, an ingredient renowned for its abundance of beneficial minerals. Great for any hair type, it features a medium yet natural hold with a matte finish and a fresh and earthy scent from north-western Canada. Unlike most styling products, the ingredients of this Glacial Clay pomade can help to promote healthy hair by moisturizing, nourishing and protecting throughout the day. Other key ingredients include shea & cacao butter, coconut oil; sandalwood, clary sage and vetiver grass essential oils.

Wise Men's Care Glacier Clay Pomade

Pomades are probably better suited for shorter hair, but that didn’t stop me from trying it in my collarbone length hair. It is a little stiff to work with at first, but the heat of your hands makes it easier to work with. It also has an earthy scent, but at the same time, it smells like a clay facial mask. It gives the hair a natural feel without being crunchy or dry to the touch.

Next is the Sea Kelp Soap $12 CAD:

Wise Men's Care Sea Kelp Soap

Sea Kelp extract is a sustainable botanical ingredient harvested off the coast of the Canadian Maritimes and is known for its high concentration of iodine, minerals and anti-oxidants. Great for any skin type, this soap offers a gentle yet effective cleansing experience and a fresh, vegetal and oceanic scent reminiscent of the Canadian Atlantic waters.

  • Hand-made in Québec by cold-processed saponification 
  • 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free
  • Free of palm oil and its chemically modified derivatives

The ingredients of this Sea Kelp Soap can help promote healthy skin by moisturizing, de-toxifying and nourishing your skin. Other key ingredients include shea butter, olive and canola oil; petit grain, black pepper, bergamot and vetiver essential oils.

Wise Men's Care Sea Kelp Soap

This is a really great natural soap. It lathers well and like everything tested in this package from Wise Men’s Care, it smells so good – very clean and earthy. We both really loved this soap!

Neem Wood Comb $15 CAD – I was really happy to see such a beautiful wood comb.

Wise Men's Care Neem Wood Comb

Neem has been used for millennia for it’s anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal  properties, just to name a few. For combs, using the wood from the neem tree is a great alternative to regular plastic or metal materials, who’s sharp edges, static electricity generation and toxic residue can damage your scalp, hair and health in general. The soft teeth of our neem wood comb massage your scalp and the wood’s many properties can help reduce dandruff and other scalp-related issues.

I didn’t realize that the Neem Wood Comb would help with scalp health – this is awesome! I always use a comb to detangle my hair after washing it, so this will get a ton of use by me.

You can buy all of the products separately, and they also have a few gift bundles ranging from $52 to $165 CAD.

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.

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.

Buck Naked Soap Company Natural Lotion Bar

Have you tried a solid body lotion before?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
