I’ve dubbed myself Queen of Body Products.
I love ’em. I snag ’em. I dream of making a healthy little income reviewing what works and what’s just another bit of hype. (cough, cough. Burt’s Bees! I’m here, ready to write!)
So for this first review, I’ve decided to focus on my Number One Body Concern: Skin Care.
I am diligent (okay, neurotic is more like it) about my face. As a previous sufferer of acne and allergies, I pamper my skin like royalty.
Here’s my favorite.

This handy little line is just about perfect. The foaming cleanser is light, yet whisks away the grease (eww) and residue of the day. While it’s probably overkill when it comes to this product, I’m a firm believer in removing makeup prior to washing. That way you know that the cleanser is actually making its way into your pores, and not just gliding on top of your foundation. Maximize the goodness of that royal jelly!
Additionally, the day lotion is a must-have for those of you with vampire complexions like mine. It moisturizes and also provides broad spectrum SPF 15. Protect that skin year round, yo. Fair warning, though: the SPF leaves a bit of a white sheen, so plan accordingly by making sure it’s really rubbed in or by following with your favorite foundation.
And finally, the night cream should be your new best friend. It really does the job of nourishing your skin (hence the name) overnight, without feeling overly greasy. In fact, sometimes I use it during the day if I know I’m not leaving the house. #perksofahousewife
So in closing, this is one of my tried-and-true GO-TOs. It’s reasonably priced (you can get all three products for around $45 total) and has treated my face with the respect it deserves. Plus, the 99% natural ingredients make me feel good about life (but more on that later).
And who doesn’t want more feel-good moments in life?
