True confession time! While I am disciplined about what I put in my body, I have ignored what I’ve been putting ON my body! I haven’t been using a lot of toxic products on my skin. But I haven’t been using products that would nourish it either.
I guess you would say I have been a skin product minimalist! I used practically no skin products. I didn’t because I was born with eczema and have struggled on and off with it my whole life. When I found myself struggling with an auto-immune condition, my skin was hugely affected. I found most products I tried were extremely irritating and aggravating to my skin so I just stopped trying them
My skin regime consisted mostly of using coconut oil or jojoba oil and that’s about it. No soap, no toner, no anti-aging cream. And let’s face it…when you are in your 50’s your skin drys out and you feel like a big prune. You really want something more than coconut oil.
If you want my whole story, I’d love for you to watch the video. If you just want me to get to the bottom line, here it is…a friend gave me a beautiful gift package with Jasmine and Ylang Ylang body wash and Body Cream. It took me 3 months to even take it out of the beautiful gift box it was in.
I am so glad I finally did because when I put it on my body, I was amazed at how my skin just soaked it up. It loved it!!! This body cream smelled and felt divine.
I went back to my friend in amazement and she just laughed, knowing if I’d just open my mind up to try these products, they would work their magic. And they have.
Neal’s Yard Remedies (NYR Organics) is a company based in London and they have been hand crafting these products since 1988. There is so much I could tell you about the company, it’s values and mission…but I think this sums that up best; It has a a 100% Ethical rating by the Good Shopping Guide. Everything they do is totally transparent.
EVERY ingredient in all the products is listed and they include a glossary of ingredients telling you exactly what they are and why they are in the products. Every ingredient that can be organic is! There are NO toxic chemicals in any of the products. If there is an ingredient that is questionable, they leave it out. The only fragrance in these products are the organic essential oils that are in them to heal and nourish your skin. And these are certified organic by the Soil Association in Europe which is the highest level of standards.
No wonder my skin is eating this stuff up!
I can’t believe how much better my skin looks and feels! Quite frankly…I’m blown away. I know you can’t really tell in this video but in person, it’s dramatic. And I”ve only been using it a few weeks.
I’m learning so much about the skin care industry and all the horrible chemicals that are in most products. Instead of focusing on all that, I will be sharing information about this good stuff with you. It’s important that we share what we are learning so we can nourish ourselves and then teach our children what to be aware of.
I shared with Tiffany and got her the Bee Lovely Body Butter. She told me tonight she is addicted to it and that it is healing her skin too (thank you mother genetics. She got my skin).

While I really try to support and buy products that are non-toxic and organic, I find they don’t always do the job as well as those that have all those chemicals. I am so excited that I found these beautiful organic products that really WORK!
