Love Is In The Air

There are two words I love to see scrawled across product labels: handmade and natural. That's why I couldn't wait to get my hands on the natural handmade artisan soap from LOVE NATURE NYC. The host of natural ingredients packed into the fragrant lavender bar of soap left my skin feeling surprisingly softer and smoother. Of course, that could be because the bar contains a higher percentage of unrefined cocoa butter combined with sweet almond oil (among other superingredients) to soften, hydrate and condition the skin-without the harsh chemicals that so many other soaps rely on.

Feeling the love for my new soap, I couldn't resist trying the All-Over Salve as well. The salve packs some serious moisturizing ingredients, like beeswax and vitamin-packed wheatgerm oil, to nourish areas prone to dry skin, such as the knees and elbows. You can even use it on your hair to tame flyaways and nourish dry ends. Everything LOVE NATURE NYC makes is cruelty- and chemical-free. Now I just can't decide which of their other products-body scrubs and oils, lip balms and soy candles-I want to try next!
