Lemongrass Spa Healing Elements Balm | Review

Lemongrass Spa Healing Elements Balm | Review

My mom and I recently made our first ever order from Lemongrass Spa. They are an affordable organic/natural/non-toxic skin care, hair care, and makeup brand. One thing we had to add to our cart was the Healing Elements Balm. I’ve heard many good things about it both online and from my chiropractor.

It is such a multi purpose product. You can use it anywhere on your body and it improves the health of your skin pretty quickly. With ingredients like coconut oil, apricot oil, jojoba oil, chamomile and lavender essential oils, as well as vanilla for a yummy scent, it’s no wonder that it works so well and is so loved.

Our Success Stories:

A couple of weeks ago I had a pretty deep, raw rug burn on my pinky knuckle. My nerves burned from the tip of my pinky to my elbow. I stupidly tried straight, undiluted lavender oil on my boo-boo. That was too harsh and made the burning worse. I added a touch of The Honest Co. Healing Balm and did not find any relief. Next, I gave Healing Elements a try. I dabbed a tiny scoop (it came with a little spatula for easy, less messy application) on my raw knuckle, topped it off with a band-aid and found instant relief from the pain. I carried on with that combo a couple of times a day for about a week until my knuckle scabbed over.

Mom has been using it as a night time moisturizer and we both agree that her eyes look less puffy and overall, her skin looks smoother. We have been trying to find a Vaseline replacement for her lips. This didn’t quite match up. She said it absorbed too quickly. She likes the barrier that the Vaseline provides. Do you know of any alternatives for her? Let us know in the comments.

We have been loving this and plan to keep our cupboards stocked with it at all times. It’s such a great multi purpose product that everyone should have on hand!

What are your favorites from Lemongrass Spa? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

All Good Skin Care | Review

All Good Skin Care | Review

All Good makes wonderful, organic, and natural skin care products. Their products are high quality, effective and safe.

All Good’s Lip Balms are very buttery and hydrating. When applied, it melts right into the skin, getting to work quickly to moisturize dry lips. The two pictured are Original and Spearmint. Both are great, and there are other scents and even tints available.

Coconut Oil Skin Food is versatile and very handy. I’ve used it as a moisturizer, a carrier oil for essential oils, and even an oil cleanser. I really like the few scent options All Good has available. The two I have pictured are plain coconut as well as lemongrass. Lavender is also available. The lemongrass scent is very sweet. For comparison, it is sweeter that Young Living’s lemongrass essential oil.

Progressing through the drier, winter months my skin feels tight and dehydrated. Body lotions are a must have for this time of year. The body lotion from All Good is so creamy and moisturizing. The scents coconut, lavender, and lemongrass are all wonderful. But my favorite is the lavender. It is so sweet and flowery.

Sunscreen is always important to have on hand. This sport sunscreen is a great non-toxic choice. I am going to remember this for when the summer hits and I spend more time in the hot rays.

All Good products are just that…all good. I loved every single one that I tried. I plan to repurchase the body lotion in the lavender scent first. That was my favorite.

Are you familiar with the All Good brand? Do you have any favorites? I’d love to hear them in the comments!

Portland Bee Balm | Review

Portland Bee Balm | Review

It is the beginning of December. Here in New York, we have had a drop in temperature and have seen a few snow falls. Like many, when the chilly months hit, my skin gets dried out. I especially feel it in my lips. Portland Bee Balm has been a crucial part of both my morning and night time skin care routines.

Portland Bee balm has an amazing texture. It is hydrating without being greasy or slippery. After applying the lip balm my lips feel healthy all day.

I love both the unscented and the mint scented balms. The unscented has a slightly nutty smell to it, but it’s hardly noticeable. The mint smells just like my favorite peppermint tea. A lot of people won’t use lip products with mint because of the cool, tingly feeling it can cause. This mint balm isn’t like that. It has just enough peppermint essential oil in it to give a nice sweet scent, but not enough to irritate the skin.

The ingredients are so simple and clean: bee’s wax, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, and peppermint oil in the mint balm. All of their ingredients are local to their headquarters in the NorthWestern United States.

Not only is the product incredible, but the packaging that it comes in is beautiful! The plastic tube is wrapped in a thin piece of wood with the Portland Bee Balm logo burned into it. It feels great to hold in your hands and to apply. It’s also wonderful to look at.

I’ve loved using both of these and would repurchase in a heartbeat. If I had to choose my favorite, I would have to go with the mint. But if mint isn’t your cuppa tea (pun intended?), the unscented is beautiful as well.

What is your favorite winter lip care product? Please share in the comments!
