I cannot believe the official days of summer are almost over! We just returned from a wonderful laid back trip to the beach and it was my first vacation away from my new job. I was able to unwind, get off the phone and computer (except I did decide to enjoy multiple seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when I was inside - thanks commercial-free Hulu upgrade), and have a lovely time with family. I don't think I have NEEDED a vacation so badly in my life! And I feel as though I say that every few years, but coming back today, Monday, after 10 days away.... I feel like a completely new person. And that, dear readers, I typically do not say after a vacay. You're probably not all that surprised that I'm doing another post featuring Elements Beauty Shop, the RVA local woman-owned business that carries beauty products with no animal testing. Continue reading this post - at the end, Elements Beauty Shop and I will be giving away a face scrub worth $23.00!
One of the brands that Elements Beauty Shop has introduced me to is called Lather. They are a wonderful brand where the product line is predominantly under $60. Their product line description is:
LATHER uses only natural, healing ingredients and sources organic ingredients, paraben-free preservatives and sulfate-free cleansing agents whenever possible. LATHER offers a superior skin care experience with high-quality products that care for your skin and allow you to cleanse and bathe in soothing contentment "for a radiant life."The most expensive item sold by Elements from Lather is $95 and that's an entire kit! The products I have enjoyed the most from this brand are: Licorice root eye treatment, Bamboo creme hair wash, Bamboo creme conditioning rinse, Mangosteen and Green Tea moisturizer (awesome scent that epitomizes summer... one of my new faves!), and the Gentle eye makeup remover.
Let me make a point in saying thank you to Lather for sending me, as an #ElementsBeautyBlogger, a full sized gift of the Mangosteen and Green Tea Moisturizer. I never would have picked out that lotion for myself, but it quickly became my saving grace this summer due to my perpetually dry skin (thanks hormone meds). It really does smell tropical but not too sweetly-fruity. Just a hint of fruit and the green tea keeps it fresh. The product contains aloe vera, rice bran, sunflower oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter - so the fact that it was a clean and non-residue-causing moisturizer really did impress me. The brand did not require me to make any statement, but I truly have enjoyed using this product throughout these warmer months. As you can see below, I also used it to apply my NKD SKN sunless tanner several weeks ago, and it worked great for that (no streaks).
