I’ve decided that every week, I will share some my favorite green beauty products. My purpose in doing so is to show y’all how important using organic products really is! I don’t do things just to be labeled as a hippie, contrary to what some people might think. Instead, I do it for my health and my family’s health. There are so many toxic chemicals that fill the beauty products that are sold at everyday department stores that can have major harmful effects on us. It is really scary!
I highly suggest downloading the Think Dirty app and typing in the names of the products that are currently in your bathrooms and makeup bags and try not to freak out. After you throw out all of that icky toxic stuff, I hope you settle in and read this blog and see what organic products I’ve found that work! I’ve done the hard work for you! When I first realized how toxic my products were, I began trying organic products and have used some that are great and well worth the money and others that don’t do the job for which they were created. I’m well-aware of the fact that just because a product is organic doesn’t mean that it actually works.
Today I am going to feature Bloke Body: an all-natural and cruelty free makeup, skincare, and hair product line. Let me introduce you to your newest addiction in beauty products! The very first thing I can say to you about Bloke Body products is that they work! I cannot wait to get my hands on MORE products (hint, hint to my husband) for Christmas. These products make GREAT stocking stuffers for your loved ones; who doesn’t love to treat themselves? To check out all of Bloke Body’s incredible products, please visit them at: www.blokebody.com. I tried three products for review; the Green Tea + Sea Salt Body Scrub, Light + Blonde Dry Shampoo and the Restore + Hydrate Hair Treatment.
1. Light + Blonde Dry Shampoo – This stuff is heaven in a bottle, y’all! I wash my hair every 3-4 days, and by day 3, my scalp needs some help! I have such bad post-partum hair regrowth that I have to blow dry the baby hairs down and slick them with my fingers, but that causes oil so I sprinkle a little dry shampoo and rub it in and voila! problem solved! This dry shampoo helps revamp your hairdo without having to use toxic chemicals with a regular aerosol dry shampoo! This product is made with arrowroot powder and kaolin clay that absorb excess oils while giving your hair extra volume, texture and a soft, matte finish. I really like using it when my hair is growing out, and I want to cover my regrowth before I can get to the hairdresser for a touch up! It’s easy to apply, just sprinkle a little dry shampoo onto your scalp and hair, and I massage it into my hair and scalp until it blends and distributes in my hair.
2. Restore + Hydrate Hair Treatment – Even though my scalp needs help from the dry shampoo, I cannot forget about my ends! I get color put on my hair, obviously, and that combined with applying heat to my hair with the blow dryer, straightener or curling wand can dry out my ends. I hate that fried, frizzy look, so that led me to the Restore and Hydrate hair treatment. This is a blend of Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, Castor Seed Oil, Sweet Orange Oil & Vitamin E. I love that each ingredient was hand-picked to make this treatment the most bang for your buck! A little bit of the treatment goes a long way, so for $19.95 you get a 4oz product that will make your hair look drastically different after each application. To use this product, you apply to dry hair. (Bloke Body recommends you starting with about 1 – 2 tbsp, then add more as required for your hair type and length. Massage into roots, working your way to the ends. Leave in for 30-45 minutes, or longer if desired. Proceed to wash hair as normal.) I use it once a week and I LOVE the results that I see afterwards! My hair is silky soft and feels healthy again!
3. Green Tea + Sea Salt Body Scrub – I have no clue why, but I have a lot of red irritated spots and blemishes at this point in my life. I try every thing under the sun to keep it at bay and I’ve found some products that I really like to use for this purpose. One of those products is this body scrub! I use it head to toe on my skin! This all organic body scrub has worked wonders on my skin! It leaves me with a nice soft glow and baby soft skin. The organic green tea soothes your skin, fights blemishes and reduces redness and irritation. The Himalayan sea salt exfoliates the dead skin cells and helps you shed that dead skin, leaving buffed, smooth, glowing skin! It also has cold-pressed coconut oil that locks moisture in your skin! I mean, the ingredients sound like a vacation that I definitely want to attend! I really enjoy treating myself to this body scrub when I get the chance, and I try and use a little bit (less than a tsp) on my face every few days! When I get really irritated skin, I increase the frequency of how often I use this scrub and where! The smell is heavenly and you will really love yourself for treating your body afterwards.
Overall, I love all of the products that I tried and I cannot wait to try more! Some different products that are interesting to me and are at the top of my holiday wish list are the beachy bohemian sea salt mist, peppermint and mocha body scrub and the peppermint mocha lip balm! These make the most amazing stocking stuffers so load up and treat yourself and your family and friends this holiday season!
