HollyBeth Organics Review

Good morning dear friends! I hope you're having a fantastic Friiiiiday. Today I bring you a review! HollyBeth of HollyBeth Organics* sent me a range of samples for my sample-loving hands to try. The line is USDA-certified organic & "is lovingly created in small, artisanal batches, using earth-friendly manufacturing practices and packaging," according to their website. It's always a weight off my shoulders when I know that what I'm using is earth-&-animal-friendly. Let's take a look!



Let me start off by saying that HollyBeth Organics has some really cute packaging. It's very floral, modern, & feminine in its design. I received the sample gift set which retails at $40 as well as a couple other samples. The gift set is appropriate for all skin types & includes a Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer, Lemon Lime Shea Butter Cream, Lavender Hand Cream, Grits & Honey Scrub, & an Eye Cream Emollient. The other samples I received were the Orange Peppermint Shea Butter Cream & Chocolate Peppermint Hair & Body Oil; both of these samples retail at $10 a piece.



The Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer smells heavenly. I am a sucker for rose. The formula is designed for normal, dry, sensitive, & rosacea-prone skin, which is unfortunate because it's a little too rich for my combination skin. I have to use the teeniest amount. Hey, it's good to conserve the product!



If you're looking for a natural & interesting body scrub go for the Grits & Honey Scrub. Grits are essentially ground corn -- cornmeal -- which is used as the natural exfoliant. The honey keeps it all together. This was a nice body scrub. However, you can leave the scrub on your face for a few minutes to create a mask.



Both the Lemon Lime Shea Butter Cream & the Orange Peppermint Shea Butter Cream are ridiculously lush. The cream is thick, you could even say hard. I love the density as well as the scent.  I feel like it's really nourishing my skin. Lemon Lime is refreshing while Orange Peppermint is more invigorating. Both of these rock! Lavender Hand Cream is lighter in texture than the butter creams but just as hearty. Although this one is specifically designed for hands, I prefer the consistency of the butter creams. It does smell great though.



I'm 24. There's no way I'm going to see noticeable results from an eye cream, so it's all about how it feels. The Eye Cream Emollient is very, very, very rich. You need only the tiniest bit. Take that tiny bit, then use less. Less is more here, people. The Chocolate Peppermint Hair & Body Oil smells tasty. I added some to the tips of my hair to hydrate them.

Overall, I really was impressed with the range. My favorite products would absolutely be the Lemon Lime Shea Butter Cream & the Orange Peppermint Shea Butter Cream. What's your favorite organic product? Do any of these items appeal to you? :]
