Lavender Vanilla Whipped Body Butter
Okay, people, I live in the desert. To say I am an expert in All Things Moisturizing is honestly an understatement. I know what to look for in a good moisturizer, I know what’s going to work (and not work), and I am really picky about packaging and scents. Herban Lifestyle delivers on all accounts. The Whipped Body Butter is made of pure shea and cocoa butters, scented with natural oils (as are all the products in Herban Lifestyle’s line), and packaged in a classic glass jar. The body butter is decadent and emollient and made my just-shaved legs smooth without being too greasy. Winner.
Adzuki + Dulse Cleansing Grains
I will admit: I doubted I would like this product. It seemed cumbersome to use and I wasn’t sure I’d like the gritty powder against my skin. But, man, was I off base! Just a tiny bit of this facial cleanser goes a long way, and left my (coughcough aging coughcough) skin thoroughly clean and bright. I don’t think I’d use this product as a makeup remover (use coconut oil for that!) but to rid the face of excess oil and dirt? Perfection.
Orange-Ginger Shampoo Bar
I’m a huge fan of shampoo bars: they last forever, they smell fantastic, and they don’t leave waste! This shampoo bar smells just lovely, but I wanted it to be a little heavier-scented. It seemed a bit drying for my hair, but again, I’m in the desert and generally use a super-moisturizing shampoo which, in higher humidity, would leave my hair oily. So, most likely, this product would be fine for you, and I know many of my Green Sisters love it! Herban Lifestyle shampoo bars come in two scents currently: Deeply Herbal and Orange Ginger.

Lime+Coconut Lip Crème
Oh, man. Another lip balm, right? What can be so special about lip balm? Well, my friends, you need to have THIS lip balm. Mary titled correctly in calling the product “lip crème;” this little tube is a thick emulsion of oils and beeswax that solves all your dry-lipped woes. I put it on the chapped corner of my son’s mouth and his skin was healed by morning. Flavors Lime+Coconut and Tangerine+Vanilla are ready for summer! Just writing this paragraph made me go pick up my tube and slather some on. Love it.
