A Green Monday review of this luxurious, organic do-all
I have a confession to make. While I love buying organic products, anything too crunchy is just not for me. You know what I mean, things that look like they are sold from out of a van, possibly by someone with bare feet. Don’t get me wrong, these things have their own special charm and their place. It’s just not in my shopping cart…
Which why I flipped when I came across Skin & Bones – sleek and goth on the outside, totally hippie from within! Allowing me to get in touch with my natural side all the while appealing to my packaging-loving, design snob self.
This unisex, organic, multi-duty moisturizer will appeal to anyone who cares about what they put on their body, as much as they care about what sits on their counter. Though instead of multi-duty, I really should have said every duty. This oil can be used to moisturize your entire body: face, neck, hands, and feet. It helps to reduce wrinkles and stretch marks. It heals sad cuticles, tames frizzy split ends and conditions hair.
How’s it do all that, you ask? With a powerful mix of 10 organic oils. Each chosen for their ability to gently whip you into shape. Oils like Frankincense, an antiseptic tonic that can somehow help aging and dry skin, as well as balance oily skin. Actually I was amazed at the amount of all natural oils in this moisturizer that list oily skin woes as one of the issues that they’ll tackle. Oils fighting oily skin? Yet founder Heidi Jenkins even sites her previous problematic dry AND oily skin as the catalyst for this very product.
Then there’s the scent. It’s floral (thanks to jasmine and ylang ylang) but with a rich woodsy base that peeks out in the dry down (yum; sandalwood and cedarwood, among others). It’s nothing short of gorgeous.
Of course, luxury never comes cheap (especially when it’s of the organic variety). Prices range for $30 for 1.7 oz, $50 for 3.4oz, and $90 for 6.7 oz. Not convinced you need to take the leap? Try the .5 oz travel size for $15. Get in touch with your green side as well as your hip side, you’ll thank me!
Buy it here: Beautorium or Fred Segal.
