:: REVIEW :: Savannah Bee Honey Body Lotions

Ever since I started using all natural lotions several years ago, my skin has been thanking me! There’s nothing like the feeling of applying a lotion, rich with natural ingredients that truly moisturizes and softens the skin. This winter, I’ve found some new favorite body lotions that I just had to share with you!

Savannah Bee Company is a unique company with its beginnings in beekeeping, later expanding to create all natural body care products with the pure honey they collect. I had the opportunity to review a set of their honey body lotions and let me tell you, they have a new super fan!

Body Lotion 72DPI

These lotions have an amazing blend of all natural ingredients with the added softening benefits from the honey, which is a natural humectant (meaning it attracts and retains moisture). Their honey body lotions come in three scents: wild blackberry, lemongrass spearmint and tupelo honey. The wild blackberry definitely has a sweet, fruity scent that I loved. As a fan of anything lemongrass, I absolutely loved the pairing with the mint for a rejuvenating lemongrass spearmint scent. Last but not least, the tupelo honey has a sweet but mild scent, which would be great for those who don’t care for heavily fragranced lotions. As far as the consistency of these lotions go, they are quite rich but are absorbed easily by the skin, leaving it moisturized and soft. This is NOT your average watery lotion where it feels like you didn’t even put on lotion 30 minutes ago (you know what I’m talking about lol). These lotions are now a mainstay in my purse to combat the drying effects of this cold, winter weather PLUS I love putting the lotion on just to smell the sweet fragrances ( I am obsessed with love great smelling products!).

Ingredients (Honey Body Lotions): Organic aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, helianthus annus (sunflower) seed oil,  glyceryl stearate citrate, cetearyl alcohol, prunus amygdalus duclis (sweet almond) oil, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) seed oil, cetyl esters, natural fragrance, glycerin, HONEY (mel) xanthan gum, glyceryl caprylate, sodium levulinate, potassium sorbate, argania spinoza (argan) kernel oil & sodium phytate

Happy 2014!!!

I’m so excited for a brand new year and what better way to kick off the year with a giveaway :)

This week’s giveaway is a Q-Redew Handheld Hair Steamer. This became one of my favorite hair tools this past year as you can see in the vid below. It really helps me to extend my styles before wash day since the added steam allows me to manipulate and stretch my hair and the steam evaporates quickly to help cut down on setting time for my style.

One lucky Natural Chica reader (U.S. Resident) will win one Q-Redew steamer. To enter, please follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget below.

::REVIEW:: COSMOBOX

This month, I was introduced to a new subscription box service called Cosmobox, which focuses on delivering their subscribers 5 luxury natural cosmetic samples. When they asked me to review one of their boxes, I couldn’t wait to find out what companies they were working with and what types of beauty products they were going to be providing.

I was honestly excited when I saw the contents of this box! Because I tend to use mostly all-natural products for hair and body care, it was nice to receive a box where I could use every single product and not have to worry about any ingredients that weren’t going to be good for me.

Here’s what was inside the box:

1. WELEDA Lavender Relaxing Body Oil 0.34 fl oz: I love essential oils and this blend with lavender essential oil had such a soothing aroma!

2. GIOVANNI Tea Tree Triple Threat Invigorating Shampoo 2 fl oz: GIOVANNI was one of the first brands I tried when I first went natural, and I love their scalp invigorating tea tree shampoo. This sample will be the perfect travel-size shampoo for me.

3. J.R. WATKINS Lemon Hand & Body Lotion 1 fl oz: This brand was new to me, but they have a new fan! This lotion was extremely moisturizing and I loved the subtle but sweet lemon scent.

4. SHIKAI Everyday Conditioner 2 fl oz: I haven’t tried this conditioner before, but I am excited about the ingredients which include

5. DR. BRONNER’S Pure Castile Soap 2 fl oz:

Before receiving the box, I was already a customer of Dr. Bronner’s and Giovanni, so it was great to be introduced to 3 other brands I wasn’t familiar with (J.R. Watkins, Shikai & Weleda). Overall, I was pleased with the quality of the samples in this box and am excited to see how COSMOBOX grows and what other products they will be offering in the future!
