Hand & Body Balm $36 : This intoxicating balm can be used just about anywhere. It's a great product for dry skin whether it be elbows, knees or hands. It has a very pleasing-to-the-senses, feminine aroma (ylang ylang really stands out to me, a scent I adore) and contains skin healing ingredients. This comes in a clear fogged glass jar.
Ingredients: organic coconut oil, beeswax, organic shea butter, organic jojoba, non-GMO vitamin E, organic helichrysum, rose absolute, organic rosewood, jasmine absolute, organic lavender, ylang ylang, cistus essential oil.
Flowers Lip Balm $17 : I've mentioned it several times before, but in case you weren't aware - I can't handle greasy, oily, really slippery lip balms. This is the opposite and it's wonderful. It shares a similar consistency as the Flowers Face Balm and Hand & Body Balm so I use them on my lips interchangeably. My lips are hydrated and happy.
Ingredients: organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, organic shea butter, non-GMO vitamin E, organic rosewood, organic ylang ylang, jasmine absolute, organic helichrysum essential oil, rose absolute.
What I truly love about using this line is the simplicity. None of this complicated business - I use only two products for my face in the morning (cleanser + oil) and occasionally three at night (sometimes still just two if I don't feel very dry). That's it. And of course I love that the ingredients are as clean as they get. I was also amazed by the results. One little improvement I wish they would make is to replace the current unsealed labels with sealed ones (like the ones on their essential oil blends) because their unsealed version (on the cleanser, which I keep in the shower) has already washed off, which is good in terms of it biodegrading faster but it means it just doesn't look nice in my shower after awhile. Still works great though!
For some reason I wasn't prepared to be ultra impressed, though I'm not sure why since Hope Gillerman's essential oil blends are ultra-high quality and hands-down effective. My skin didn't have any issues or breakout during the three weeks I used it (and still am because I like my clear skin and often when I change products there can be a transition period); which is sort of amazing considering I haven't been eating super clean these days. (I'm working on it). I highly recommend this line - the cleanser and the face oil are my faves of the bunch. If you have normal/combo skin the cleanser and oil are probably the only things you need for your face this Spring and Summer. Keep it simple! If you are concerned about aging and dryness, tack on the Face Balm to your regimen.
