Over the past year or so I have become very fond of handmade and homemade skin care products. Love using products that were made by people that love what they do, so when Emily offered to send me a few of her products to review I was thrilled.
Today I’m going to be sharing some lovely products from Emily’s Ardor.
I know I have mentioned how much I love lavender.I find the smell really soothing and it helps calm my headaches. So these butter bars are so nice to have sitting on my desk.
If you don’t know what butter bars are, they are bars of solid lotion. These particular butter bars are made with essential oils, shea butter, beeswax, and coconut oil. They are super moisturizing, easy to use, and unlike moisturizer from a bottle, there is no waste because there is none left in the container that you can’t get to.
Have I mentioned how much I love coffee? If you follow me on Instagram no doubt you already know that I’m a big fan of caffeine, but I’m not just a fan of coffee in liquid form, oh no, I love the smell of coffee, and I love coffee in skincare, so a vanilla latte scrub is right up my alley.
I have been using this every other morning, the smell wakes up my brain and the caffeine in the scrub wakes up my skin, so overall it is a perfect start to the day. This scrub is made with organic coffee, vanilla beans, and coconut oil.
I only have one little problem with this scrub, and that is that it is a little messy and there tends to be quite a bit of escaped scrub that doesn’t make it to my face.
This scrub smells so yummy! I feel like apples tend to be a bit overshadowed by pumpkin this time of year, but I do have a soft spot for apples. This scrub leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth, and the smell makes me want a real apple pie.
My final thoughts are that I absolutely love all three of these products, they are simple, refreshing, and made with love, so there really is no way you could go wrong with any of them.
Thank you so much to Emily for sending me these lovely products, it was such a pleasure working with her. Be sure to check out her shop (here).
