Pure Plant Spa Skin Care

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

I am wildly impressed with these lotions–they have so many organic ingredients and are comprised entirely of plant derived components. Here is a bit about Pure Plant Spa:

“PURE PLANT SPA® is a plant-derived collection of body care products which combines the best of modern and traditional healing modalities to help achieve and maintain increased wellness.

All products are made without parabens, harsh preservatives, sulfated detergents, synthetic colors, animal-derived ingredients, PEG, DEA, PPG, TEA, Propylene Glycol, petro-chemicals or artificial fragrances. When personal care products contain harsh chemicals, they can generate allergic reactions, skin sensitivities or irritation.

The aromas of PURE PLANT SPA are completely plant-derived. They are extraordinary blends of essential oils, each of which contain hundreds of natural constituents that have the ability to enter the body through the olfactory system. They are easily absorbed through the skin, and they may benefit the nerve and lymphatic systems. We believe that these complex aromas have the ability to enhance the mind, body and spirit in remarkable ways.

PURE PLANT SPA is committed to uniting ancient traditions and modern science to promote a heightened level of health and well-being.”

My Description & Thoughts:

Who would have thought that lavender and tangerine go so well together? This combo is soothing yet zesty. The flowery lavender and the citrusy tangerine make for a feminine and pleasant aroma.

The lotion itself provides perfect hydration to my skin. It isn’t goopy at all, goes on smooth, and leaves a beautiful scent behind. Truly the ideal lotion, especially when you take a gander through the ingredients, which are all plant based with a lot of organic components.

This just might be the best lotion I’ve ever used. Let me break it down for you:

-The smell will sweep you off of your feet. The bright, pure, citrusy aroma is uplifting and beautifully pungent.

-Outstanding ingredients–chock full of organics.

-Moisturizes like a dream.

-I would take a shower just to slather this on afterwards–it’s that good.
