Skin Mind Body Essentials Brands: Lotus Moon & Detox Rx

Skin Mind Body essentials is a company that is comprised of three brands: Lotus Moon, Detox Rx, Plain Jane Beauty and Son (for men). I was eager to get my hands on these products because their website descriptions immediately impressed me. Lisa of SMB was lovely to connect with–she sent over some great, deluxe sized samples of Lotus Moon & Detox Rx items for me to try, evaluate and write about. I am also loving the tote and Lotus Moon glass bottle that Lisa sent me! I have been using more glass containers versus plastic to avoid BPA, so this bottle came at the perfect time.

Here is a bit of background about Lotus Moon:

“This is our active, natural and organic skin care line that uses therapeutic blends of essential oils and extracts along with concentrated levels of active ingredients to address various imbalances in the skin.”

And a bit of background about Detox Rx:

“To emphasize the important of internal wellness and detoxification and its connection to beautiful skin we offer DetoxRx. A line of supplements, bath and body products that support and improve the body’s natural internal cleansing process. These formulation are gently, yet effective, and only contain the highest quality natural and organic ingredients.”

Unscented Conditioner

Lotus Moon’s Description:

“Hair types: All

pH: 3.5 – 4

Clean and simple. Just how you like it.

HEALTHY conditioner goes back to the basics. When all your hair needs is gentle conditioning then this is your go-to treatment. A low pH balanced conditioner helps to restore hair elasticity, reduce dryness and breakage, maximize color retention and boost shine.

Aloe vera juice, lavender and chamomile hydrosols help to soften your tresses while rosehip seed oil and wheat protein help to nourish and repair.

Although this is an unscented conditioner, meaning we did not add any essential oils to it, you will still notice that is has an inherent scent that is simply from the ingredients themselves. We do not add other chemicals in order to create a “neutral” scent. Many people want an unscented or fragrance-free product but do not realize that often times chemicals are added to remove whatever scent remains. We do not do that, so what you will smell is the natural scent of the ingredients themselves.

Ingredients:

Aloe barbadensis (Aloe) Juice*, Lavendula angustifolia (Lavender) Distillate*, Anthemis nobilis (Roman Chamomile) Distillate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ricinus communis (Castor) Oil, Stearalkonium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, dl-Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Vegetable Glycerin, Rosa mosqueta (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Salix nigra (Black Willow Bark) Extract *NOP certified organic.”

My Description & Thoughts:

The two most important things to me in looking for a conditioner that I will keep in my shower are: great, organic ingredients and the conditioner’s ability to detangle the ends of my hair. This conditioner has both of those qualities.

The fact that it is unscented is nice for a couple reasons. First, because it makes it more friendly for male & female usage and second, because it enables you to add whatever essential oil to it that you’d like. Having that creative ability is nice.

It is hard to find a conditioner that meets my two specs, so I’m happy to have come across this great Lotus Moon conditioner!

Green Tea & Lavender Cleansing Milk

Lotus Moon’s Description:

“Skin Type: All

pH: 4.5-5.5

This fresh, gentle and effective cleansing milk combines an extensive assortment of vitamins, antioxidants and aromatherapy for an out of this world cleansing experience.  This 100% all-natural cleansing milk is formulated with 92% organic ingredients.

It gently removes impurities without robbing skin of its natural oils.

The scent is light yet heavenly, soothing your senses and turning what could be a chore into a delight.

Ingredients:

*Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Juice, *Olea europaea (Olive) Oil, *Aspalathus linearis (Rooibos Tea) Extract, Emulsifying Wax, Glycerin, MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol), *Camellia sinensis (Green Tea) Extract, *Camellia sinesis (White Tea) Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Xanthan Gum (Polysaccharide gum), Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C Ester), d-Calcium Pantothenate (Panthenol Vitamin B5), Retinol Palmitate (Vitamin A), Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Oleoresin, Azadirachta indica (Neem) Oil, Lavendula augustifolia (Lavender) and Cedrus deodora (Cedarwood) essential oils. *USDA certified organic

My Description & Thoughts:

Like cleansing lotions that I’ve tried, this cleansing milk does not have much lather to it, as you’d imagine. It is more of a soothing, cleansing, hydrating way of cleansing skin.

For a more thorough, yet nourishing clean, I combine this milk with my favorite organic bar soap to clarify my skin more entirely.

Wonderful ingredients are to be expected with any Lotus Moon product–how refreshing. This cleansing milk is no exception.

I appreciate this milk in that it mixes up my showering routine a bit, which is nice at times. The green tea  & lavender scents together make for quite a therapeutic experience when combined with warm shower water–just lovely!

Clean Sweep – Natural Psyllium Fiber Cleanse

Detox Rx’s Description:

“After extensive research and testing we concluded that the best thing to do when it comes to cleaning out the system was to keep it simple. That’s just what we did.

CleanSweep® blends USDA certified organic psyllium husk and seed powders. That’s it! That’s all! While the husk has more fiber than the seed, the seed has more nutrients, and we wanted the best of both worlds.

Psyllium is the strongest natural dietary fiber for promoting regularity and supporting heart health. It is most effective when used everyday, and can be used as long as desired.

Each teaspoon provides 4 grams of dietary fiber. The average person needs about 25 grams of fiber per day. This is an easy way to get the fiber that you need. It can be added to your morning protein shake or simply added to water and stirred vigorously.

What are the benefits of Clean Sweep?

  • Promotes regularity and easy elimination
  • Removes toxins for better health
  • Improves digestion
  • Helps lower elevated cholesterol levels for heart health
  • Helps balance blood sugar levels
  • Reduces problems with diarrhea or loose stools
  • Protects the health of the colon.”

My Description & Thoughts:

I’m all about detoxing using organic, natural methods. This fiber gives my daily routine an added boost. I have been adding it to my smoothies and elixirs that I make–it has a very mild, earthy flavor the mainly just makes any concoction more robust and thick.

It helps keep the bloat out of my stomach and regulates my digestions. For me, a healthy tummy often means a healthy overall feeling and mindset. Adding this powder to smoothies also makes for a more satisfying drink. Sometimes, I just mix it with water and throw it back down the hatch for a more direct and speedy way to drink it.

This is a great detox product that I highly recommend. I love seeing the organic label on a supplement like this!
