Product Review & GIVEAWAY: SKIN Organic Body Care

by Elise Schwartz | October 12, 2011 11:53 PM

Alright folks, I have discovered a fabulous new organic product line to share with you!  I am so excited about it!  The company is called SKIN — a complete body care line free of chemicals, parabens, fragrances, and preservatives.  I love it because SKIN is completely organic and natural.  Check out SKIN’s product ratings[1] on the Skin Deep Cosmetic Database from the Environmental Working Group.

SKIN was founded by Stephanie Simkins who has a passion for organic eating and holistic healing.  She saw the need for truly natural beauty care products and created her SKIN line using organic oils and botanicals.  Her products are designed to nourish and heal your skin, specifically formulated with food-grade ingredients such as green tea, fruit extracts, and coconut oil.  Stephanie was so sweet to send Dave and I a goodie bag of her products to test out and review.  And I must say, we were both deeply impressed by the quality and results.  It has been almost 3 months since we began using her facial cleanser, toner and moisturizers and our skin has never looked or felt better!

My favorites from SKIN are the Lemon Aid Face Wash[2], Lemon Fresh Toner[3], and Daily Greens Cream[4].  The face wash is like no other I’ve ever used.  I have combination skin, so it’s always hard to find a good cleanser that gets rid of the oily buildup without drying me out.  Well, SKIN’s Lemon Aid Face Wash is PERFECT!  Any blemishes are healed up after one or two washes.  Followed up with the Lemon Fresh Toner, and my pores are tight and face glowing afterward.  I like the use the Daily Greens Cream around my eyes and along my cheek bones.  It is infused with green tea which helps to neutralize free radicals, and amped up with vitamins and minerals.  I noticed after a couple weeks use my eyes were less puffy and those dark circles that came with my pregnancy were diminishing.

I encourage all of you to check out this fabulous product line.  And fellas, take it from my husband: he’s IN LOVE with the cleanser from SKIN!  It’s not just for the ladies!  And I’ve been using the Lemon Mousse Hand & Body Cream on baby Austin’s bottom when he needs a little diaper rash refreshening.  Works like a charm!  These products will be featured on my Healing Cuisine’s Christmas Gift List this year for sure.
