Beauty & the Ocean: Sea Lotus Sensation from H2O+
Lotion, body wash, scrubs. These are pretty basic beauty products that we use all the time. Of course we have our favorites, but sometimes we like to switch it up a bit. I recently received a set of body products from H2O+. I have had good experiences with this brand so I was eager to try these products out. If you haven't hear of h20+ here's a little bit about the brand. H2o+ uses the benefits of marine life (such as the minerals & antioxidants found in marine life) in their skincare formulas. Their vision is "A world of healthy and vibrant oceans that enhance life and beauty" (ww.h2oplus.com).
This gel wash has a clean, invigorating scent that's a pleasure to use. The bold blue color adds to the deep sea refreshing sensation. It gel lathers well and leaves your skin feeling thoroughly cleansed, nourished & hydrated. The texture and scent is soothing and refreshing at the same time. It also doesn't not leave any soapy film on your skin; only the clean, refreshing scent lingers on your skin. The bottle is easy to use and keep in your shower. It's not your typical bottle shape so it adds a little visual variety amongst your other shower products. Key ingredients include Water Lotus & Bamboo extract - these aquatic plans have the ability to store moisture from the atmosphere, in turn providing long term hydration for your skin. Other key ingredients are Red Marine Algea and Vitamin E.
Scrubs are good products to incorporate into your skincare routine at least once a week to renew your skin and promote new skin cell growth. The h2o+ Sea Lotus Skin Smoother has the same invigorating scent as the body wash & the body lotion. This body scrub also contains Water Lotus & bamboo for hydration and to help stimulate skin renewal. Sea salt gently exfoliates leaving a smooth and vibrant skin texture Sweet almond oil adds lightweight hydration that is easily absorbed for deep moisture. I have found in the past that some oils tend to overpower the product and do not absorb well leaving me feeling not so clean, but the almond oil absorbed so well my skin felt nourished and hydrated! Also, I did not even smell Sweet Almond oil, I just got the refreshing sea fragrance!
The last of the three sea lotus products I tried and it has been my go-to lotion ever since I started using it! I've been using it this fall and it's just the right thickness! Not as thick as a body butter (something I might turn to in the winter) but it still provides the much needed nourishment and moisture my skin needs. Cocoa and mango butters absorb quickly to replenish the skin. How well a lotion absorbs into my skin, is a big factor in deciding whether or not I like it - I just hate a greasy feeling - but this lotion absorb really well for me while still providing the much needed moisturization. Other key ingredients are Red Algea and Vitamin E to help sooth your skin, and once again Water Lotus & Bamboo to help renew your skin.
The combination of these three products left my skin smooth, nourished, and refreshingly clean! The fresh, crisp scent was strong when using all three products, but not overpowering. I simply didn't feel the need to wear perfume! Just using the body wash or the body lotion separately allows for lighter scent. The three products make a great body care routine to keep my skin hydrated and smooth going into the winter months!
