Natural Ingredients are wonderful. With all of the toxins we are exposed to daily, it is nice to know that certain skin care companies are using only the best organic and natural ingredients in their products. It is important to consider the safety of products, not only for us, but for children as well. Two sisters, Jess and Whitney of Cashmere Washington have not only perfected the art of making wonderful, all natural skincare products, their products are affordable making them accessible to any consumer.
After struggling for years with acne and rosacea, older sister Jess developed an interest in making her own skincare after experiencing frustration with the high price of effective skincare. Younger sister Whitney worked for years as a skincare consultant, but found it difficult to find products which wouldn't flare up her eczema or cause severe allergic reactions. The two sisters turned to nature for help, and Moody Sisters Skincare was born. The two paired up, and developed an entire line of skincare and beauty products that are not only all-natural, but also completely chemical and paraben free.
I absolutely love the Moody Sisters: Tinted Lip Balm which is available in five different shades: Rose, Berry, Bronze, Coral (my favorite) and Pink. These lip balms come in a cool oval tube. I love the rustic packaging; it is really obvious that these products are handmade in small batches, allowing for a higher quality lip balm. Made with simple ingredients: Beeswax, Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Oil, Apricot Kernal Oil, Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Mica, Vitamin E and Essential Oils. This lip balm is so natural that I gave my 6-year old (going on 16 year-old) the pink as her “makeup.” These lip balms are tinted enough to tickle her making her believe it was her “lipstick.” These lip balms are perfect for everyday use, and are super moisturizing. I urge you to try, or at least pick one up for your little girl who is dying to wear makeup :)
I also had the pleasure of using the Moody Sisters: Heat Rub. It is no secret that I am a gym rat (a Crossfit addict to be specific), so I am no stranger to tired, sore, achy muscles. Many heat rubs are too harsh for my dry, sensitive skin. The Moody Sisters Heat rub is full of all natural warming and soothing essential oils. Unlike many other muscle rubs which have a medicinal fragrance, The Moody Sisters Heat Rub smells amazing. Made with arnica oil, a wonderful healing natural ingredient, as well as cinnamon, peppermint and juniper berry, this product worked wonders on my aches and pains. I applied it to my boyfriend’s back as well, and he found this heated rub to be extremely relaxing.
