I am a long time fan of Lather products because they only use pure and natural ingredients that are not tested on animals. Everything that I have tried so far makes me yearn for more, add the fact that their products don’t cost an arm and leg, yes they are pretty reasonable with aesthetically pleasing packaging, take a look! *pr samples*
As a recap, Lather sells natural and organic bath and body products, most of which are also found in posh hotels and Lather spas around the US. I also admire their sustainability initiatives such as using soy-based ink in their packaging, supporting community garden, you can see the corporate’s summary of achievements here.
It’s not true that you only get dry lips during the winter time because summer also brings out the worst in our skin, including lips. In fact, I get dry lips more during this time of the year so a good scrub always comes in handy. This vanilla and argan lip scrub retails for only $10, you can get one for yourself, sister and mom. I have a friend who shops early for Christmas so this is a nice idea to add to her list. It provides gentle exfoliation and hydrates my lips just the way I want it, a little minty but it doesn’t sting. Quite a new approach but deodorant in a jar ($14)? I have the same mixed reaction. I love the idea of going natural but dipping my fingers and rubbing on the pit? well I know I am a total clean freak so I use this immediately right after shower when everything from top to bottom is squeaky clean. Rapplication is an issue especially if you’re out and about so hopefully the brand will come out with a traditional roll-on in the future.
I have already reviewed both the body scrubs ($22) and body creams ($22) here but to reiterate, their scrub is my favorite by far out of all the body scrubs I have tried out there. It foams while providing gentle exfoliation. You can use it alone as a body wash, just rinse per usual. The body cream renders adequate moisture without feeling greasy or heavy especially this summertime.
A repeat appearance because both have been featured already, but there is a reason why you see them constantly on the blog. I only recommend products I really enjoy! Quick hack during summertime. Store your mist in the fridge and spritz after a long day out, it’s the most refreshing feeling ever (Cucumber & Ginseng Facial Mist, $17. Coconut Creme Body Wash, $18).
I’ll tell you a funny story. When my family visited me last month for my birthday, I was kidding my 66 year-old mom because her feet happened to be the most visually attractive compared to me, my sister and my teenage niece. Take note, we are all “vain” but my mom clearly won in the pedi category, she has serious nail art skills, you guys! And then I started to tease everyone, look at our yucky toes and dry feet and look at mom’s! In her words “women should never neglect their feet, they deserve the same TLC as your face”! I agree, thankfully I had the chance to try this combo delight from Lather, foot scrub ($18) and foot creme ($18). Both have eucalyptus which is cooling and soothing at the same time. Being that I am on my feet practically whole day, they are definitely a nice treat after a long day at work. I am stocking up for sure.
