Recently I have been reading a lot about the dangers of synthetic fragrances, parabens and sulfates in the products we are putting on our bodies and it makes me happy that I have not really ever been a heavy perfume user. That said, one of my favorite self-care treats is a good body scrub – especially as we transition from winter to summer.
After discovering LATHER (I know, what took me so long??) and reading their product descriptions, I decided to give them a try. Since body scrubs are my favorite – especially at this time of the year – I chose their Glow on the Go set of four different scrubs so I could try out a few products at once.
If you asked me what scent I would be fine smelling every day for the rest of my life – it would be lemongrass. Lemongrass is just so fresh, clean, vibrant and happy. Other natural scents like Lavender and Almond are also favorites of mine – but only in their natural state. For as long as I can remember I have disliked Lavender scented candles, lotions and such – because I was smelling ones made with synthetic fragrance. Once I discovered pure lavender essential oils a few years ago, I have figured out that pure lavender is beautiful and synthetic lavender is just trash.
So the Glow on the Go set was perfect for me to choose as I have been enjoying all four different scrubs:
- almond crème body buff
- bamboo lemongrass foaming body scrub
- lavender & olive foaming body scrub
- yuzu sugar cane body buff
Each one of these scrubs smells AMAZING, but the bamboo lemongrass one is still my favorite with the yuzu sugar cane coming in a close second. Most of LATHER’s products are Vegan and the only one of these four that is not, is the almond creme body buff. All four are free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil and synthetic fragrance and colors which is very important as far as I am concerned.
One thing I noticed about the bamboo lemongrass scrub is that my skin is ridiculously soft after using it, but there is no greasy film or feeling afterwards – just super soft skin.
The entire line of LATHER skin care and hair care products are created with sustainable, holistic, pure ingredients. These are products that you can feel great about using and giving as gifts. I know that I personally have bookmarked their site and will be going there first when looking to replace my current skin and hair products as they run out! As far as gift giving is concerned, I know my own daughters will be happy recipients of any LATHER gifts that come their way.
Finally, LATHER does offer free shipping on orders of $60 or more and they include free samples in every order (I got a sample of Muscle Ease Gel and I love it!) and for a limited time, use coupon code 30ship for free shipping on orders of $30 or more.
Have you tried LATHER? If so, I’d love to know what your favorite products are and which ones I should try next!
