Recently I was given the opportunity to try out some handcrafted bath and body products made by the company Herban Lifestyle – http://bit.ly/1FCIQzj .
Many times a week I am approached by companies and organizations that want me to write about them and their products or causes. Most of them I turn down because I don’t think that what they are selling or have to say is worth bugging all of you, my readers, about. However, sometimes a product comes across my desk that I am compelled to tell you about.
Mary and the products she makes and sells through her company Herban Lifestyle – http://bit.ly/1FCIQzj is one such case. A great company and an amazing product, Herban Lifestyle – http://bit.ly/1FCIQzj is the real deal. (And hint…hint…these products would make an AMAZING Mother’s Day gift for some lucky mama out there…. just sayin’.)
Herban Lifestyle – http://bit.ly/1FCIQzj is a company that was founded by Mary Kearns in 2008 (though she’s been making bath and body products since 1999). She is on a mission to:
Make the world a happier, healthier, better-smelling place!
All of the Herban Lifestyle – http://bit.ly/1FCIQzj products are handcrafted in small batches using natural, organic and Fair Trade ingredients. The company takes care to use earth-friendly packaging, never tests on animals and follows green business practices at all levels of the company.
Herban Lifestyle Review
As I mentioned, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to try some of the Herban Lifestyle – http://bit.ly/1FCIQzj products myself. I was sent:
- Lavender and Vanilla Body Butter – http://www.herbanlifestyle.com/product/lavender-vanilla-whipped-body-butter-made-organic-and-fair-trade-ingredients
- Green Tea and Bamboo Cleansing Grains – http://www.herbanlifestyle.com/product/bamboo-green-tea-facial-cleansing-grains-organic-chamomile-normal-dry-skin
- Orange and Ginger Shampoo Bar – http://www.herbanlifestyle.com/product/orange-ginger-shampoo-bar-made-organic-fair-trade-vegetable-oils
- Lime and Coconut Lip Creme – http://www.herbanlifestyle.com/product/organic-lime-coconut-lip-creme .
I was impressed with all of the products I was sent. If you’ve ever tried to make your own bath and body products, you know that getting all the ingredients, preparing everything and coming up with a good end product is quite the task. I’ve tried countless recipes only to be disappointed by the end result. Unlike many of my DIY failures, each of these products are amazing, beautifully crafted and effective.
While I loved all of the products, I was most impressed with the Lavender and Vanilla Body Butter – http://www.herbanlifestyle.com/product/lavender-vanilla-whipped-body-butter-made-organic-and-fair-trade-ingredients . When I first put my finger into the jar, the product felt luxuriously thick. As I began to rub it in, it was easily absorbed by my skin and did not leave a greasy film. It was lightweight and left my skin supple and soft. Perfection.
The Lime and Coconut Lip Creme – http://www.herbanlifestyle.com/product/organic-lime-coconut-lip-creme?tid=74 was similarly thick and left my lips well coated. It was beautifully scented and tasted good too! And because Herban Lifestyle – http://bit.ly/1FCIQzj is committed to using organic, natural ingredients, I felt comfortable letting my kids use it.
As for the Orange and Ginger Shampoo Bar – http://www.herbanlifestyle.com/product/orange-ginger-shampoo-bar-made-organic-fair-trade-vegetable-oils , I have to say I was a little hesitant. I’ve always been a shampoo and conditioner right out of the bottle kind of girl. (I know, I know…. that stuff is terrible.) So I had trouble believing that a bar of shampoo and no conditioner would do the trick. Well, I’m happy to report that it did! I really like the shampoo bar! I just suds it up in my hands, rub it through my hair and rinse! The first few times I used it I still had to use some spray-in detangler, as my hair had been stripped of all it’s natural oils from repeated use of “regular” shampoo but as the natural oils returned, my need for conditioner has been greatly reduced and is almost non-existent! Yay for less chemicals!
And finally…. perhaps the least common product, the green tea and bamboo “cleansing grains.” – http://www.herbanlifestyle.com/product/bamboo-green-tea-facial-cleansing-grains-organic-chamomile-normal-dry-skin I have to admit, when I first saw them and the first time I used them, I wasn’t sure what I was doing. However, a couple of times using them and I as hooked! Based on Asian practices of using rice powder for cleansing, these “grains” are amazing. They smell wonderful and leave your skin feeling incredibly clean and mildly exfoliated. Get rid of those environment-damaging micro-bead products and switch to the cleansing grains! You’ll be glad you did!
