Holistic Honey Body Lotion
Ingredients: Witch Hazel, Coconut Oil, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Vitamin E, Organic Honey, Grapeseed Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Xanthan Gum, Black Willowbark Extract, Essential Oils, Neem, Rosemary, Mannan, Citric Acid.
Review: I have to start by saying how much I love the scent! It is not all perfumy, but it smells like sweet honey (ahh.) The Honey Body lotion is 100% organic and is very creamy. Honey is a natural humectant so it attracts moisture to your skin, which is a HUGE plus for N's dry skin. But is not sticky, when I think of honey, that's the first thing that comes to my mind. But again it is not sticky. I really like this lotion, it gets a A+ in my book.

Review: Since N is only 7 and doesn't have any skin problems, I did not use this product on her face. I used it on mine. It has a high concentration of Vitamin C, which helps to exfoliate your skin. I have oily skin, so I wet my face and neck. I then applied a small amount on my face, and rubbed it in circular motion for about 2 minutes. After the first use, my skin brightened up. I thought it would feel dryer, but nope. They recommend using it 2-3 times a week. I think that would be a bit much, so once a week is perfect for me.

Review: They claim that this is best used to help with sunburns. But it is fall here, so I don't know about that. But after using the Grapefruit Glycolic Wash, I applied this to my face. I didn't notice a BIG difference, but I didn't notice anything bad either. It was so-so for me. They say it should be kept in the refrigerator to help get the cooling effect. But again summer has passed. So I will store this until summer, and I'll keep you all updated.

Review: I gave the Citrus one to N, so she could use it in school. She has a bad habit of licking her lips and causing a crusty ring around her mouth. It annoys the heck out of me lol. So since kindergarten I made her keep some chapstick/lip balm in her bookbag to apply after lunch and during the day. After a week I asked her what she thought about the Citrus Lip Balm and she said it smells like oranges.....That was all she said. Getting a opinion from a 7 year old is like pulling teeth lol. So from a 7 year old's mouth, I guess its safe to say she likes it.
I used the Blueberry for the week, and I used it as a base for my lipstick when I went out. It smells great. I honestly think most chapsticks are alike lol. But the reason why I would choose this, over any other brand, is the fact that it isn't filled and made out of junk. Simple as that. I'm always using and reviewing natural hair products, but neglected natural products for my skin and body. So since this is the same price as regular chapstick, I rather use this.
