My Experience:  When the box arrived, I promise I smelled the fragrance before opening the package.  It was such a sweet, clean fragrance that I couldn’t wait to try the products.  When I finally opened the package, all of the items were in tact.  I was initially very impressed with the line up of products because I was surprised at the fact that they had everything from bar soap to hand cream with this fragrance.  Each container was very easy to open and close with a great amount of product.  I’m still shocked at how big the bar soap is!

My Results:  These products are amazing!  I love the sweet, fresh smell that they all have.  Plus, they all give such great moisture.  At times, I suffer from dry skin, but when using the body lotion and/or shea butter, I never experienced dry skin.  Also, the lovely fragrance lasts most of the day.  The hand cream became a staple in my bag without a doubt because of how well it moisturized my hands.  Since I work part-time as a cashier, I definitely know the value in a long lasting hand cream and this did just the trick.

Price:  As with most natural products, my limit is typically $10.  However, these products weren’t far off from the mark and with the moisture quality and amount in each bottle, I can say they are worth the splurge.  I have been using these products daily for over a month and haven’t used even half of the product in each bottle.  You are definitely getting a bang for your buck.

Final Thoughts:  What can I say?  I am definitely impressed by these products.  I haven’t owned many organic body products so this was a new yet pleasant surprise.  I can’t get over how moisturizing these items are and the quantity in each bottle.  Even the bar soap lasts a long time.  These products make me reconsider the notion of organic products and I will definitely be looking more closely next time around.
