Organic Essence – Review and Giveaway

carries a small variety of Eco friendly packaged
body beauty supplies. GREEN and Clean.
From Lip balms (my personal fav), body creams, lotion to go,
shea Butte and Soaps. Their new approach to packaging
is, to say the least, NEW and very Interesting.
They Generously sent me a couple products to sample
and review. I Tried one of their Lip balms, as I am wildly crazy about
lip balms of all sorts and am a very Picky and particular Gal to please
in that catagory, if I do say so myself. Organic Essence had me from
the moment I smelled the package as I was opening it. But, sealed the deal
with the very first application of the lip balm.
My balm was Almond. Absolutely fabulous.
When I unwrapped the package, it was so cold out that it was
solid as a rock. However, I knew this would be the case considering
it was below freezing outside when the mail man delivered the package.
Being the impatient woman that I am, I couldn’t wait to try the lip
balm, however, I soon found out that it ws fate that I HAD to wait.
The tube is designed so that you remove the cap and gently squeeze
on the bottom of the tube to get the “good stuff” to rise a little to
the top. Then apply as you normally would. Well, since it was cold
and hard as a rock, no matter how hard I squeezed. It wasn’t going anywhere.
THAT, is the ONLY downfall I have come accross yet.
Once the Lip balm was at room temp. I proceeded to apply as
directed (by me). Slathered all over my poor dry cracked lips.
This cold and wind has taken a huge tole on my lips.
The Almond lip balm was heaven to my lips. Wasn’t greasy at all
(as I was afraid that it would be), it left my lips feeling very moisturised
and very softened. It aided in the healing and gentle removal of the dead
skin (gross I know). Normally the Dead skin would be painful to remove
even with other “lip care ” products I’ve found this process to be painful.
Not with this stuff. after an hour of having the lip balm on, my lips felt like new
after 2 days of using it only 3 times a day. My lips are fully healed and
very soft. Something I find very hard to accomplish in the winter months
unless I use those nasty menthol / gooey oozy products that NO ONE likes
to have to use.
Anyhow. I am eager to try out their other products as well.
So, Now it brings me to the second part of this FABU Review,
the GIVEAWAY part.
Organic Essence also sent along the Vanilla Orange Organic Shea Cream
Maximum Moisurizing cream. UGH… I wish I could have gotten to try this one out
BUT, I wanted to share with my readers. OR, atleast ONE LUCKY READER.
This is what they says about the She Cream:

Organic Essence Maximum Moisturizing Organic Shea Cream
Need hand and body moisturizing to the max? Made with shea butter,
known to increase the skin’s capillary blood flow, Organic Shea Cream
provides lasting skin softening wherever you need it. Organic Shea Cream
is a powerful all over body moisturizer that doubles as an excellent massage
cream and make-up remover.

Packaged in an eco-responsible biodegradable organic jar. Even the label
is eco-friendly – no need to peel it off. Don’t worry about the adhesive, it’s
organic, too. USDA certified organic is your assurance that questionable
ingredients are not present to potentially harm your skin.

I happen to agree with them.. Although, I didn’t get to try this actual product. I DO want to though. My feet need a good Softening.. As I’m sure your’s do too in this weather. SOOOOO.
