I am pretty sure I have a slight obsession for lip balm – I cannot go anywhere without it! You too!? I am excited to share a few of my go-to lip balms, including Moon Valley Organics at the top of my list. In addition, since it is winter and starting to finally feel cold in San Diego, I wanted to share a few favorite hand creams and body lotion. I swear by these and warning once you try them you may not be going back to your current products.
First off, top of my list is the Moon Valley Organics lip balms! I found this amazing product in Seattle while visiting family and touring around Pike Place Market. After walking up to the shop and learning about their products and all natural philosophy, we could not leave without purchasing honeycomb and a lip balm (best decision ever). My most favorite and beloved flavor is their Velvety Vanilla. Every year for the past four years now I stock up on Black Friday when they offer their buy 2, get 1 free deal! Without a doubt, my total count goes up year after year because they make the perfect gift for friends and family. What makes this particular lip balm so special? The silky, rich Beeswax Lip Balm uses Organic cold pressed oils and Organic Beeswax to naturally seal in moisture. A hint of organic vanilla and lemon essential oils gives it a special touch, and it smells SO good. Made of all pure ingredients! In addition, with every purchase we are saving bees, 10% of profits are donated to organizations that are dedicated to protecting bees and other important pollinators.
My newest lip balm obsession that I add to my nighttime routine is Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm.
The body lotion I have been using for years and could not live without is Palmer’s Cocoa Butter. Smells amazing and leaves the skin so soft. I recommend using it as soon as you get out of the shower for best results. I love that I can use this all year round and regardless of weather my skin is always left soft and moisturized. Good for all skin types, it is made with pure Cocoa Butter and enriched with Vitamin E.
For hands, my skin gets very dry in the cooler months and cracks so I need a hand lotion that I can depend on to help keep my hands smooth and healthy. My number one favorite, cult favorite, is L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. It is non-greasy and super smoothing! This makes for the perfect gift and I found these two limited edition discounted gift sets if you are still looking for a gift for those “hard to gift” people in your life:
As another alternative, I recently received this cute Go Be Lovely hand cream by Illume and I love it! Perfect size to keep in my purse, non-greasy, and a gift that keeps on giving. The Coconut-Milk-Mango scent is so yummy and another great gift with the adorable packaging.
