I recently started using an assortment of body care items from a company called Lavender & Lilies. They are a body care company that makes only organic products. For the past couple of years I have been pretty conscious about what I have been putting on my skin and I try to stay away from chemicals as much as I can. This has been really hard for me because I have EXTREMELY dry skin and all of the organic or all natural lotions I have tried just don’t do the trick. I have been pleasantly surprised with the amount of moisture the lotion from Lavender & Lilies has brought back to my skin during the month I have used it. I enjoy using the products so much I thought it was necessary to break down why I enjoy each of the products I have been using.

1. Green Tea and Cucumber Eye Makeup Remover ($5)

I chose to put this item first on my list because it is hands down the best eye makeup remover I have ever used. I was a little nervous at first because it seemed a little oily and I thought it would give me that gross feeling that oil type products do to my face, but it didn’t! All of the oil soaked right into my skin and gave me the softest skin under my eyes. My husband can testify to that because I kept making him feel how soft my skin was after using the product. So not only does it make my skin feel moisturized and soft, it also took my eye makeup off really well. I sometimes have a hard time getting mascara off when I wash my face at night, but with this product it comes off pretty easy. The low price on this item really surprised me, I would recommend this product to anyone.

2. Woodsy Body Lotion ($5-15 depending on size)

This is the lotion I brought up earlier in this post. I really like woodsy type smells so this scent was right up my alley. I usually put this on when I get out of the shower and it will keep me moisturized until the next day. Like I said before, I have tested out a lot of different types of organic lotions and none have done the trick of keeping me moisturized.

3. Lavender and Citrus Body Butter ($10-$25 depending on size)

This has seriously been a life saver this winter. I have kept this on my desk and put it on periodically throughout the day. Sometimes I will put on a thick layer at night and put on manicure gloves before I go to sleep so when I wake up my hands are as soft as can be.

4. Lime and Coconut Lip Balm ($3)

Putting lime in a lip balm is the best idea I have ever heard. I didn’t realize how much I love that scent until I started using this. I am one of those people who is constantly is putting on lip balm so I need one that works well. I have noticed I haven’t had to reapply as quick with this lip balm. Again, I was surprised with the low price on this item because of the quality ingredients and uniqueness.

5. Grapefruit Mint Sugar Scrub ($5-$15 depending on size)

I have kept this in my shower for the past couple of weeks and have really grown to enjoy it. I just ran out of it so I will be getting some more soon! Using this every few days has helped to get the dead skin off of my arms and legs, leaving them soft and smoother. I focus a lot on exfoliating my face and once I started using this scrub I realized how much of a difference it can make if I exfoliate my whole body on a regular basis. I like this because it exfoliates but then leaves my arms and legs feeling moisturized.

 

For those of you who are trying to reduce the amount of chemicals you put on your skin but still stay frugal, I would recommend checking out the products from Lavender & Lilies !
