A Green Monday review of this luxurious, organic do-all

Closer look of Skin & Bonesphotos: we heart this

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…

Closer look of Skin & BonesWhich 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!

  1. @stef, this looks awesome! Skin & Bones sounds so up my ally. We need to come up with a new term for people like you-and me too. I like: totally hippie from within not without! :)

  2. I have to say, I love this more and more with every use. I’m still not brave enough to try it on my face! (as an oily girl with oil-phobia) But I have a feeling that’s next. It feels so great on my hair, hands and body-how could it not feel good on my face?

    And oh my, it smells SO FAB!

  3. Thanks for introducing us to this one – sounds up my alley for organic likes, too! I’d have a hard time taking that leap to putting it on my oily areas too, but don’t they say not enough oil makes you too oily…something like that! Let us know if you take the plunge, Stef! The scent sounds glorious, too.

  4. I feel the same way about organic products too. I LOVE the name of this company and the packaging! So sleek – I can totally picture this brand being sold at Fred Segal.

  5. I’m happy to know I’m not the only organic snob. LOL. I hate when it’s so granola, I want a bit of style with my organic purchase! This is definitely one that I’m adding to my list.

  6. I had a hands on look at the Skin & Bones Organic Oil and it is truly a beaut of a bottle. Dark, simple, hefty – and would not look at of place on any high end shelf.

    Then, inside it’s full of carefully crafted, heavenly scented, organic oil – bliss! I tested this on my hands and ends of my hair. Just like @Stef said, it’s super soothing and nourishing and while definitely an oil – not too oily. It absorbed quickly and deeply into skin and hair without leaving behind a residue or weighing down my hair. And visibly improved the appearance of my dry, dry skin and added shine to my hair as well. Good stuff.
