About Scentsational Soap Skin Care:

“FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS: 

My son Chad has a disability chromosome DUP15q and is global development delayed. *Making homemade glycerin soap started as a home schooling, hands on project. Two fold, I was also hoping to relieve his eczema, since commercial soaps, have sodium lauryl sulfates (SLS), parabens, phthalates, and petrolatum, which was irritating his skin.

We were delighted to see the clarifying, calming results and  enthusiastically shared them with family and friends, then sold them at local craft shows, and shops, and our self- created website, so more people could experience the benefits of natural soaps.**
I continued to research, to improve, to find what naturally soothes, calms, nourishes, and moisturizes our skin. For thousands of years, people have taken advantage of the healing and nourishing properties of honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, and propolis.

Our Honey Bee Natural line was born, and the response has been overwhelming! From humble beginnings, to touching the lives of people globally. Please read our testimonials. Thank you to all of you who have shared your experiences and excitement! Your  thankfulness and thoughtfulness, warms our hearts.

We truly do care.

My Thoughts About the Shampoo & Conditioner:

This shampoo and conditioner duo was one that I enjoyed using and my hair really reacted well to it. The shampoo suds up very well and was able to tackle my greasy, post-run scalp without stripping my ends of all their moisture. As the name suggests, both the shampoo and conditioner have a minty aroma to them–which is one of my favorite scents to have in the shower. I’m also a believer in the power of the hemp plant and I love that the shampoo contains hemp oil.

Besides ingredients, my main concern with a conditioner is that it is able to detangle my long strands. This conditioner worked very well and left my hair soft, moisturized and manageable.

Scentational is clearly a brand is that ingredient conscious. I’m happy to see that they omit SLS and parabens in their hair products. I would obviously love to see them take their hair products to the next level by using organic ingredients. That said, these two hair products are heads and shoulders above the products you would commonly find in your local drug store.

Lavender Honey Sea Salt Scrub

About:

“Regular exfoliation is necessary to keep the entire body smooth in texture and to eliminate surface toxins, impurities, and dead skin cells.  Our Lavender Honey Sea Salt Scrub is enriched with Organic Oils, Essential Oils, Pure Local Florida Honey and Florida Sea Salt for the ultimate in moisturizing and nourishing, as well as anti-free radical damage benefits to the skin.

My Thoughts:

I have lately become a huge fan of scrubs (even making my own–using coffee grounds). Maybe it’s all of my long marathon training runs that are making my skin feel the need for exfoliation. Whatever it is, I truly don’t mind it because I have great products like this one to get the job done.

The grittiness of this scrub is ideal for me–its enough to thoroughly exfoliate my skin without being too harsh. I use it on my knees and elbow, primarily.

The lavender and honey scents under warm shower water truly make each shower like a flowery and sweet spa experience! Love the use of organic essential oils in this product.

My Thoughts about the bar Soaps:

These are my two favorite Scentsational products in consideration to the ingredient lists alone. Nothing makes me “ooh” and “ahh” over a product more that reading one organic ingredient after the next.

In addition to the high-quality ingredients, both are these soaps are incredible to the scenses! Mint is my very favorite scent in a bar of soap because it not only smells fresh and cool, but it feels that way on the skin as well. It truly feels like it rejuvenates your skin.

The chocolate decadence bar is earthy, rich and just as wonderful as it sounds. The chocolate smell is noticeable, but not completely overpowering. This is unique treat for my to have experienced–as it’s one of the few bars of chocolate I’ve had in the shower! 🙂

Our Lip Balms are Homemade and All Natural and made with moisturizing mango butter, cocoa butter, nourishing shea butter, skin loving sweet almond oil, beeswax, pure Florida honey and vitamin-e as a preservative, flavor oil.

**For better results it is best to exfoliate lips every night with our Strawberry Honey Lip Exfoliator/Plumper/Edible and follow with our Strawberry Honey Lip Balm.  Exfoliating is to get rid of dry, cracked, peeling lips and lip balm helps lock in moisture and keep your lips soft and smooth.  (ladies, doing so will make your lipstick stay on longer.)”

My Thoughts:

I first thought of my 5-year-old girl when I read about this product. She can’t get enough strawberries!

Often times, strawberry skin products smell and taste like an artificial strawberry flavoring. However, with this lip balm you get the feeling that it’s the real deal. It’s so sweet and fresh! Truly smells good enough to eat. It does an incredible job of moisturizing chapped lips (I even dab some on my nose on colder days to prevent having a dry nose).

I love the simplicity and richness of the ingredients. Again, would love to see this ingredient list like the Scentsational bar soap ingredient lists. I see myself stocking up on this for my little girl when they pack it full of organic goodness.

Strawberry Honey Sugar Lip Scrub

About:

“Naturally Bee Kissed (Lip Exfoliator & Plumper) is an effective exfoliator and plumping lip treatment. Rich in organic fruits and herbs and proudly free of Parabens, Mineral Oil, Petroleum.

The first sugar-based, lip exfoliator/plumper that is perfectly edible and smells delicious.  This natural pure Florida tea-infused strawberry honey lip exfoliator and plumper is packed with moisturizing and nourishing butters and oils to keep your lips soft and smooth.  For extra protection we added essential oils for antiseptic and disinfectant properties.  This lip scrub has uv protection. Use often as needed to keep lips healthy feeling.

Use any of our Honeybee Lip Balms after treatment for soothing and moisturizing lips.”

My Thoughts:

Having a lip scrub in the shower has been a special treat. This scrub is a bit more gentle than the sea salt scrub with finer granules. It leaves me lips soft, smooth and smelling like strawberries! Like the lip balm, this scrub smells good enough to eat. It’s interesting to read that this scrub acts as a natural lip plumped–cant hurt right? 🙂 Love the use of organic ingredients!

If all of these Scentsational products were packed full of organic ingredients, I’d give this brand my highest rating. They aren’t far away from that, though. They are a way-above-average skin care line and I’ve had a pleasant exchange working with them!
