I’m always on the hunt for lines that don’t carry bad ingredients in them but at the same time, won’t break the bank. I think brands are becoming more saavy when sourcing ingredients as consumers continue to educate themselves. And I can’t believe it took me this long to try something from this next line! Established 38 years ago, the DESERT ESSENCE line relaunched their skin care, hair care, body care, oils and dental care products this past summer and from seeing the old and new, I must say I am loving the new look. Bright colors with strong graphics on each one that just beg you to pick it up! And they were really onto something when they created the line sans SLS, PEGs, parabens, phthalates, glycols, artificial colors and fragrances, DEA, MEA, TEA. And each is also vegetarian and cruelty free. So choose and use their products with confidence.
Feeling the chill of the wind recently, the skin on my arms and legs has felt unusually dry lately, so I’m glad I had their Natural Shea Butter Body Cream on hand. It comes complete with I would consider a multi-vitamin inside each tube with vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, E and 18 essential amino acids. $9/8oz @ desertessence.com.
