Last month, I reviewed Nourish Organic Body Lotion that I found in my stash. And I complained that it wasn’t hydrating enough for my very dry skin. The folks at Nourish Organic read my review, and they were kind enough to send me two products designed for very dry skin like mine for me to try out.
Skin-Softening Organic Body Butter
Nourish Organics Skin-Softening Organic Body Butter is a blend of whipped shea butter, concentrated coconut oil and olive oil and vitamin E. It’s a very rich, I’d call it heavy-duty, solid cream that has the thick consistency of whipped shea butter. I scoop it out of the pretty jar with my fingers and apply it to my skin. It sinks in right away. It’s not greasy, but it leaves the coating or coated feeling that whipped shea butter does.
I received Fresh Fig, and it is a lovely, very soft, almost indiscernible scent. I like it. It also comes in 3 other scents as well as Unscented. The jar, made from recycled materials, is decorated with beautiful drawings of figs and fig leaves. Very pretty.
The jar contains 3.6 oz., and it is the right size IMHO. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by huge tubs of shea butter, lol. The price is $9.99.
I like the Skin-Softening Organic Body Butter. Because to me this is a heavy-duty moisturizer, I’ll be using this most often during the winter when my skin is extra dry.
Ingredients: Organic Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Organic Vanilla Planifolia Fruit infused Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Organic Fragrance*, Organic Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
Skin Solve is a new product from Nourish Organics. They describe it as a “cream-to-oil all-over treatment”. It comes in a tube. Although it is made from many different oils, it squeezes out as a pale orange-yellow cream and turns to a dry oil when I rub it in. Because the cream is so thick, it requires a good strong hand to squeeze it out!
Here’s what else the company says about it:
- “Improves skin’s appearance and texture with a quick-absorbing,
fast-acting blend of plant, fruit, and flower oils and butters
- Anti-oxidant and aromatic Sweet Orange and Palmarosa smooth and soften; Shea, Coconut, and Pumpkin Butters nourish and soothe”
Skin Solve is a rich moisturizer like the Body Butter, but it gets absorbed by my skin quite easily. Although very hydrating too, it seems like a perfect product for now as well as for winter – perhaps because of the tube form.
The light orange scent from Sweet Orange and Rose Hip smells fabulous! I can smell it when I’m rubbing it in but then the scent dissipates.
New Skin Solve is a terrific moisturizer that can be used for body, face, hair or wherever that comes in a very intriguing product form. I’m enjoying using it. The tube contains 3 oz./85 g and is priced at $19.99.
Ingredients: Organic Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Pumpkin Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Cupuacu Butter, Organic Rose Hips Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Organic Soy Lecithin, Vitamin E, Organic Palmarosa Oil
Both products from Nourish Organic really meet my very dry skin needs, and they are pleasant to use. If your skin isn’t as dry as mine, try the Body Lotion. Most important, both products are certified USDA Organic. And what they don’t contain is very reassuring: no parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, artificial fragrances or preservatives silicones, propylene glycol, mineral oils, sulfates, synthetic dyes, triclosan, EDTA or aluminum. Nourish Organic products are cruelty free, GMO free, and as they say, “concern free”. They are made in the U.S.
They are widely available in stores in the US including Target, Walgreens, Whole Foods, Wegman’s and many health food stores. They are also sold on the Nourish Organic website where you can always get a 10% discount by signing up for their newsletter. But right now on their website, they’re running a 20% off mix and match promotion on body butter, body wash, deodorant and more. It goes through July 31, 2015. Check it out!
Nourish Organic makes lots of different skincare and personal care products that you can buy in a variety of natural scent collections (or unscented) if you like, including deodorant, cleansers, body wash, facial skincare etc. So many more products for me to try!
