Since focusing more on skincare and clean beauty, I’ve been introduced to so many amazing brands that are aligned with what I look for in an all natural regimen. When I was contacted to do a review for Taitu’s Botanicals
, I was beyond excited. You may or may not know about my obsession with skincare and body care, but I will readily jump at an opportunity to indulge in some “me time” and pamper myself with some yummy natural products. Give me all the body butters!
As I began researching, I actually grew interested in the brand’s history and desire to not only create these products, but to educate their audience about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle as well. Inspired by Ethiopia, Taitu’s Botanicals is an organic, vegan herbal body care line that offers deluxe body care, health and wellness products. This Black owned brand has been featured in a number of publications, including POP SUGAR and Beauty Undercover. I was sent two products from the Ginger Lime line– a body wash and a moisture cream (creme). Read on for my thoughts!
The Taitu’s Botanicals Ginger Lime body wash combines some of my favorite beauty staples with ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba oil, coconut oil and olive oil. I wasn’t crazy about the fragrance mixture of rosemary, lime and ginger (if you’re looking for something to wake you up in the morning– this is it!) but the scent doesn’t linger after rinsing. Just as I would expect from an all natural sulfate free wash, it produces a nice, light lather and glides on the skin beautifully.
It is light and runny so I did feel as though I had to reapply more than I normally would, but this totally could have been because I’m used to thicker body washes. I had no problems with my skin feeling dry or parched afterwards so that is absolutely a plus for me!
The moisture cream/creme is such a treat! The all-star of this duo, its the perfect finisher for the spa experience because it’s rich and creamy but moisturizing enough to leave your skin satisfied.
It follows the same fragrance as the body wash, but it doesn’t have rosemary so it isn’t as pungent. This product is rightfully called a moisture cream (as opposed to a body butter) and it provides the perfect consistency for application. The incentive? It leaves your skin hydrated without a heavy feeling or leaving behind an oily residue. When I find something I like I tend to try saving it for use in small increments if possible. As much as I enjoyed using this for my full body, I’m definitely designating this as my hand and foot cream after my at home spa treatments!! Yees for this moisture cream!
A BIG thank you Rivi and Taitu’s Botanicals for introducing me to their brand and sponsoring this post!
