Every winter I struggle to find something for my skin and my family’s skin that will keep it moisturized + healthy.
I feel like I have truly tried just about every product on the market. Creams, lotions, butters, oils, you name it, I have tried it!
It’s difficult when it comes to African American skin to find something that really works all day at keeping our skin nourished without being oily or costing a small fortune. So many products out there claim to be “the one” but they always fall short. Even my beloved coconut oil doesn’t work the way I want it too!
I’ve found that using shea butter or avocado oil works the best, and it’s become a staple to have some on hand in our house, but the search still continued to find that ‘perfect match’.
When Kristin of Earth Kissed Beauty reached out to me I was elated, because winter was coming and I love finding new quality products. Not to mention, my love of supporting local, female-owned + minority-owned businesses! She checked ALL the boxes!
In exchange for a review, I was gifted the Serenity body butter + Green Tea & Agave Facial Scrub. I was so excited when I opened my package and inside was a handwritten note from Kristen which was a nice personal touch.
What I love about Earth Kissed Beauty’s products aside from the great quality is knowing that all of them are handmade with earth-based, natural ingredients. There are absolutely no chemicals, synthetic fragrances (so great for sensitive skin!), and no preservatives! It felt great being able to read, pronounce, and know what each ingredient is on the label.
The serenity body butter has a very light scent to it and the consistency is creamy and fluffy without being heavy or oily. When I use this product I can go all day without having to reapply or worry about my skin drying out throughout the day. Even my husband notices a difference with his skin! He typically uses a store bought lotion for men but started using my butter instead! I liked that the scent wasn’t too heavy and was a universal fragrance. He doesn’t want to smell like a girl 😉
I’ll be honest in saying that I was nervous to use the facial scrub. Based on a previous experience I had with another scrub that actually was too abrasive and irritated my skin. But I had nothing to worry about; her GTA scrub is very gentle and even soothing to the skin. Because I know what the ingredients are when my 4-year-old asked to do mommy and me facials I felt comfortable enough putting a little on her face so she could feel pampered too :)! Because the company uses all natural ingredients sometimes it does clump because the sugar absorbs the oil, but I just added some of my own olive oil to the container and mixed it with the wooden spoon they provide you with (It’s the cutest, tiniest wooden spoon Y’all!). The extra oil works like a charm in softening up the sugar and allowing you to get your scrub and glow on!
Earth Kissed Beauty offers 3 size options for the body butters and a variety of scented options. As soon as my Serenity butter ran out I immediately placed an order, this time I tried the Lavender Vanilla, which I currently love. I think I like this scent more than serenity but both offer the same conditioning and soothing quality. Kristin, you have a lifelong customer in me!
