Wow! It’s been so long since my last post and my last YouTube video. If you follow me on any of my Social Media you probably know that I just moved from Massachusetts to North Carolina, life has been sooooo crazy for the past month. Then came the Holidays and it seemed like I never had any time between unpacking, getting settled and getting ready to start working again. Any ways here I am once again and with a wonderful series I plan on doing for the New Year and a Giveaway!
I was introduced to Kosmatology by one of my favorite and affordable Subscription boxes Bare Bliss Box. What caught my attention about this brand was that most of the ingredients are of Organic and Natural origin, and I love me a lot of that goodness. Janis, the owner of Kosmatology, contacted me to try some of her products. I was already eyeing their Face Wash and Face Oil so I was very excited to try her products. She was wonderful enough to send me 5 of her products and here are my thoughts on them.
I have never been a fan of Hand Sanitizers but after having my son it started to become necessary to have one around. After starting to use more natural and non-toxic products is seemed impossible to find a hand sanitizer. This sanitizer uses only essential oils of Lavender and Eucalyptus, vegetable glycerin and alcohol it does the job at keeping germs away. The Vegetable Glycerin helps at keeping your hands moisturized, while the EO’s double as scent and an extra antibacterial boost. It has not caused my hands to dry, even in the winter, so I love it and carry it in my bag!
Ingredients: Ethanol, Aqua, Organic Glycerin, Organic Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) essential oil, Organic Eucalyptus globulus (Eucalyptus) Oil
Goody-Goody Grapefruit Body Wash $11.75
I am very picky when it comes to body products since I tend to be very sensitive and they usually cause allergic reactions. I have been using this product since the day I received it. It has a very subtle yet uplifting scent of grapefruits. My son loved the scent and since the ingredients are super gentle I was willing to try it on him. It leaves your body soft and feeling clean. The only disadvantage is that the instructions say that you need to shake the product well before use, which at times seemed time taking but it was worth it.
Ingredients: Aqua, Organic Olea europaea (Olive) oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Chloride, Organic Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Organic Ricinus communis (Castor) oil, Organic Citrus paradisi (Grapefruit) essential oil
Mint your Feet – Foot Balm $11.49
Now let’s be honest, my feet wreak havoc in the fall and winter! They get so dry that at times it hurts. I started using this product as soon as I received it knowing that my feet were already calling for some heavy moisture. My sister and I both tried it and it did an amazing job at keeping our feet moisturized and looking healthy. The scent is an invigorating mint scent that helps your feet feel refreshed. This is definitely a must have product for all of us that need some feet rescue during the winter months.
Ingredients: Organic Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Organic Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Organic Olea europaea (Olive) Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) wax, Sambucus nigra Fruit Extract, Organic Mentha piperita (Peppermint) Essential Oil, Organic Eucalyptus globulus (Eucalyptus) Essential Oil
Rose Geranium Face Moisturizing Oil $22.49 and Foaming Face Wash $20.75
I was most excited about these two products. The ingredients of both these products are intended for dry skin and anti aging purposes. Rose Geranium Essential oil alone has some amazing properties, it is antibacterial, antimicrobial, a cicatrisant, an astringent, among others. The scent of both products is a bit pungent, but it fades quite quickly.
I started using the Face Oil first (of course, since I love me some oils), using it at night and when we still had fall weather. After one use I noticed my skin was looking supple, glowing and I can even say brighter as compared to the day before. I felt it was too thick for use under makeup in the morning, so I continued to use it at night. The results continued to be the same for about three weeks straight. Who doesn’t love their skin to feel supple and look brightened? (I love it).
I then started using the Foaming Face Wash. Since I started using it in the fall my skin was not that dry and the cleanser was feeling amazing. It did an amazing job at cleansing my skin; it left it feeling clean yet not dry. Now, as soon as the weather started getting colder, I noticed my skin was getting a bit dry. I started using it every other day and that helped my dry skin. I definitely feel that for people with combination to dry skin, this cleanser would be better in the Spring and Summer. People with combination to oily skin could find this cleanser beneficial in the Winter plus you get the anti aging benefits. I am excited to start using it again during the Spring.
