Eco Lips Gold USDA Certified Organic Lip Balm

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at EcoLips.com and iHerb.com.
Scent: Unflavored and unscented.
I like: the thick texture of the lip balm. Organic ingredients is a big plus.
Not a fan of: nothing. This product kept my lips properly nourished and protected from the dry weather. I didn’t feel the need to reapply often.

Eco Lips Gold USDA Certified Organic Lip Balm works well to protect and moisturize dry, chapped lips. Using a base of primarily organic plant-based ingredients including sunflower oil and calendula extract, the lip balm absorbs easily into the skin for immediate relief and comfort. Beeswax helps to form a protective layer, so there is less need to reapply the product often. At under three dollars, Eco Lips Gold USDA Certified Organic Lip Balm is an affordable, effective, all-natural lip moisturizer I highly recommend seeking out.

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$$ ($40-50 for 1.0 fl oz.) – Available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom.
Scent: subtle orange.
I like: how easily the oil absorbs into the skin. The liquid is non-greasy and leaves a satin feel.
Not a fan of: nothing. This is one of the better face serums available on the market that is actually worth the higher price.

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate is a light, effective daily facial moisturizer worth its price. The liquid is vividly golden with a subtle orange scent. The consistency of the serum is very light and absorbs into the skin incredibly well, leaving a smooth satin finish. The directions instruct the user to massage 2-3 drops per application, but you might need more depending on your skin type. I use approximately five drops per application for my entire face as the weather in Southern California is consistently dry. One bottle (1 fl oz.) should last about one to two months. Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate is definitely worth the investment if you’re seeking a light, non-greasy nourishing daily face moisturizer.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Wash Passion Fruit Ingredients

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Vitacost.com and iHerb.com.
Scent: Tropical passion fruit
I Like: the light texture of the body wash. Effectively cleans. Cruelty free.
Not a fan of: the synthetic fragrance ingredients.

Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian Passion Fruit Body Wash effectively cleans without leaving your skin overly dry. The body cleanser has a relatively intense tropical fragrance – something to keep in mind if you’re sensitive to strong scents. However, the smell doesn’t linger after washing. This product does not produce a lot of lather, but it does leave you feeling island fresh. Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian Passion Fruit Body Wash is certainly worth trying if you’re seeking a reasonably priced tropical-scented body wash.

Picture of Aesop Catherine Oil Burner Blend Review

Aesop Catherine Oil Burner Blend

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at Aesop.
Scent: Warm blend of orange and cedar wood with a hint of clove.
I like: the multi-functional aspect of this essential oil blend. In addition to its use as an aromatherapy burner oil, the blend can be added in very small doses to carrier oils for skincare.

Aesop’s Catherine Oil Burner Blend is a lovely proprietary mix of essential oils. Made primarily with essential oils of orange, cedar wood, and clove, Catherine Oil warms the senses and settles the mind with its distinct complexity. Though Aesop markets the essential oil blend for burner use, I experimented with the oil by adding three drops of the blend to one ounce of a carrier oil for use as a body moisturizer. (Note: always take a look at an essential oil blend’s ingredients list before using them for skincare. Some essential oil blends offered by not-so-natural companies may contain synthetic ingredients not suitable for use on the skin. Thankfully, Aesop has a strong reputation for using natural, plant-based ingredients in its products.) The body oil blend turned out beautifully with a relaxing, subtle scent. When used as an adjunct in skincare, Aesop’s Catherine Oil will add a pleasant, relaxing aromatic dimension to plant-based carrier oils like argan oil, pomegranate seed oil, camellia oil and sweet almond oil. When used in an essential oil burner or diffuser, Catherine Oil Burner Blend will make your home smell like a relaxing, luxurious spa.
