TastyFace Organics

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

I have been supremely lucky to have gained an organic beauty sister in Kelly, the founder of TastyFace. She’s a vibrant soul and a passionate woman–infectiously so. She also just so happens to make one of my very favorite lines of skin care (in my top 2!). Here are a couple other posts I’ve written on TastyFace products:

These are the products that were new for me to try: (I have previously reviewed the Coconut Cream Cleanser–you can read my thoughts here!)

Blood Orange Vanilla Body Butter

About:

“This is a a powerful butter.  Thick, rich, dense with moisture.  We combine organic shea, cocoa butter, coconut and sweet almond combine to create a powerfully moisturizing and nourishing all over body treat.  Finished with vanilla and blood orange essential oil to create a scent that’s quite simply a combo of creamiscle and chocolate.  Delicious. Your skin will soak it up!

(Please note:  Product consistency can vary depending on temperature.  Colder temps will lend to a hardened consistency – will soften at room temp.  Likewise, try to keep below 78 degrees to avoid melting!  *Just like butter.)

Ingredients:  Shea butter*, cocoa butter*, coconut oil*, sweet almond oil*, blood orange essential oil, jojoba oil*, vanilla extract*, essential oils*

*organic/high quality source

Directions for Use:  Slather on as you see fit – this is one that is completely up to personal preference.  It might seem oily/rich at first but it will absorb quickly, don’t fret.”

Tamanu + Grapefruit: Healing Serum

About:

“Our serums are wildly popular for a reason.  They pack a powerful punch!  Designed specifically to address redness, acne, eczema, and other skin issues. Lighter in texture than moisturizer, but filled with nothing but the highest quality organic oils and essentials.  The healing serum is specifically formulated with tamanu oil – which is known for its ability to quickly heal cuts, abrasions, acne, and help reduce the appearance of redness and scarring. This is a lovely light moisturizing serum and can also be layered with other TastyFace products. (We recommend cleanser, toner, serum, then moisturizer!)

Ingredients:  jojoba oil*, tamanu oil*, sunflower oil*, evening primrose oil*, sea buckthorn oil*, calendula essential oil*, grapefruit essential oil*, essential oils*

*organic, high quality source

*Please note:  citrus essentials oils can increase photosensitivity, so be cautious in the sunlight (and use sunscreen!).”

Argan + Sweet Orange: Nourishing Serum

About:

“The TASTYFACE nourishing serum:  Designed to soothe, moisturize, and smooth skin.  This is the serum to choose if you have especially dry skin or if you are concerned with the appearance of lines and tiredness.  Ultra high quality, organic argan oil combines with sea buckthorn, jojoba, and rosehip (to name a few) to deliver awesome and intense nourishment for your skin. Use alone or layered with moisturizer. Leaves skin refreshed, dewy, and happier!

Ingredients:  Jojoba oil*, argan oil*, rosehip oil*, sunflower oil*, evening primrose oil*, sea buckthorn oil*, sweet orange essential oil*, essential oils*

*organic, high quality sourced

*Please note:  citrus essentials oils can increase photosensitivity, so be cautious in the sunlight (and use sunscreen!).”

Sweet Orange Cream Lip Balm

About:

“Our newest!  HUGE tin of lip love right here. Sweet orange combined with warm, comforting vanilla scent our classic balm recipe… coconut oil, cocoa and shea butters, sweet almond oil and beeswax.  Simple yet so awesomely effective on stubborn chapped lips!  And it just plain tastes amazing.  Having a hard time not licking my lips off over here.  Remember, our lip balms are a giant 1 ounce.  That’s about 4 times the size of normal balms!

Ingredients: coconut oil*, cocoa butter*, shea butter*, sweet almond oil*, beeswax, vitamin e* (from sunflower seed oil), sweet orange essential oil*, vanilla oleoresin, essential oils*

*organic/high quality source

Directions for use:  Apply liberally to lips.  Can also be used as a healing salve for various cuts and scrapes, or a cuticle softener. Replace lid tightly after using.  Balm is temperature dependent.  In cold temps, warm by rubbing a very clean finger on product.  In warmer temps, throw in fridge to re-solidify.  Do not leave out in the hot sun and please take caution when opening product on a warm day to avoid spills!”

My Thoughts:

I truly began to laugh to myself in beginning to write another piece on Tastyface. Why am I laughing? Because this could be a 4 word review: “Tastyface Organics freaking rocks!”

Let me just say, I have tried many brands of organic skin care (most of them not actually containing entirely organic ingredients–which in my opinion is an abuse of the word “organic”) and it is rare to find product lines:

1. Made in small batches.

2. Headed by an engaged, warm founder that is eager to help.

3. Is comprised of 100% organic ingredients.

No bull honkey. No tomfoolery. No bogus promises. TastyFace is the REAL deal.

As the name suggests, these products are incredible aromatic, intoxicating and the ingredients are good enough to eat. Kelly truly abides by the idea of “if you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it onto your skin.”

Now for the these new products I got to try! These two serums are like summer dreams in a bottle. Not only are the ingredients organic and pure (as always, with Tastyface) but they soak into my skin perfectly. If you’re new to facial serums, don’t be afraid! Even if you have oily skin, nature’s oils are and should be your friend. Damaged skin needs moisture; it shouldn’t be deprived of it. Investing in a bottle of Tastyface serum will do so much more good for your skin than ANY bottle of chemical-filled acne-fighting cream. Chemicals don’t solve imbalances, organic skin care & a healthy diet do.

If I had to pick one of the two serums, I’d say the Tamanu + Grapefruit is my favorite. When I was in college a few years ago, Tamanu oil was one of the very first natural remedies I began to use on my blemished skin. I noticed the health of skin improving almost immediately. It felt better, I was more evenly complected and my skin just stopped freaking the bleep out. Tamanu oil might sound foreign, but your skin will love it.

The sweet orange lip balm was a product that our 6 year old was eyeing. She said “Ohhh orange cream!” It gives me so much peace of mind knowing that we have an organic lip balm for her that she loves. So many sticks of lip balm are riddled with junk. No junk here, just pure, sweet orange goodness. I was lucky that she was willing to share it with me so I could try it 🙂 This balm, along with the lemon rosemary balm by Tastyface is a balm recipe perfected. It’s the ideal consistency–soaks into your lips just enough but keeps them moist. It seems like so many lip balms with a cheap base ingredient don’t hang around on your skin for long (same for cheap, junky lotion), you apply it and then your skin is dry again in 10 minutes. I don’t have that problem with these lip balms. They rock!

It’s a good thing that my husband doesn’t regularly use body butter, because blood orange is his favorite! Blood orange kombucha, blood orange sparkling drinks–blood orange everything. This body butter is such a treat. These scent combinations that Kelly has come up with are simply brilliant. Blood Orange + Vanilla is a sublime coupling. Like in using body oils, I like to use this body butter right after showering, when my skin is still a bit damp. The water droplets help the body butter spread onto skin more easily (it also allows you to use less–so it will last longer!). It gives skin the perfect quench and such a pleasant smell. It’s SO redundant, but seriously, with every TastyFace product I try, I think: “Yep, Kelly has done it again–perfectly.”

If you haven’t read any of this review until right now, what I want you to leave with is the notion that you need to check out Tastyface!
