My Thoughts:

Holy cow–both of these products smell like an absolute paradise. This is perhaps the best-smelling body cream I’ve ever used. It is simply intoxicating.

Needless to say, smell isn’t the most important thing to me in body products, but it certainly makes me love them even more (since it’s in addition to awesome ingredient lists).

I prefer a creamier, richer body moisturizer like this one by Malie because it truly moisturizes skin–whereas some lotions are very liquidy, watery and seem to evaporate (more or less) within a few minutes; leaving skin dry and tight again. This cream soaks in just enough so that your skin isn’t goopy, yet it leaves your skin quenched.

The scrub has the same incredible aroma and provides a gritty & effective means of exfoliating skin. I love using the scrub during a steamy shower, then following up with the cream afterwards. This duo is truly a treat for your skin.

Though these ingredients only comprise a small amount of the body cream’s ingredient list (less than 1%), I don’t like seeing any ingredients that have a moderate toxicity level (phenoxyethanol). I could do without it! I’d give these products my highest rating without them. To me, if you’re going to use so many organic ingredients, why throw the junky ones into the mix?

Malie Beauty, overall, is quite an experience of almost entirely organic skin care products. I’ve really enjoyed using them and see myself coming back to the scrub for gift-giving!
