Everyone Coconut and Lemon Lotion combines the upbeat burst of lemon with the tropical relaxation of sweet coconut for a blend that will make you feel like you're about to jump into an aromatic pool. Although it's undeniable that it smells so nice, its smell can feel too artificial for some of you.

In my case, I was looking for a natural product and it was just too much for me. It definitely
smells like a synthetic fragrance and gave me a headache after applying.

Although it is a body lotion and most of them are kind of lightweight, this one was just too much. I could say that it was almost watery.

What I Like

  • Sustainable sourced ingredients
  • Highly hydrating
  • Smooth

What I Don't Like

  • Sticky
  • Doesn't absorb well
  • Useless container

In Brazil, people love incredibly soft and irresistibly touchable skins – always. Loving and treating their bodies just comes naturally for them and we should definitely follow their steps. This moisture-bursting cream is one of those options to pamper our skin deeply.

In my opinion, this is such a nice option for summer since our skins tends to dehydrate and look look flaky, red and dull. Remember that old beauty tip of drinking eight glasses of water? Sadly, it may no longer be enough... Coco Cabana Cream is immersed in plush hydration to treat and transform even the driest, most dehydrated skin so that it’s amazingly smooth and deeply moisturized. The more use, the deeper the benefits, and the longer lasting the hydration.

As a warrior, I have to say that I chose the product since it is cruelty free, paraben free, mineral oil free and obviously vegan.

Although it achieved almost all of my requirements, one the problems I found was its container. We are such a big family and that's why I'm always in a rush and carrying a lot of stuff (for me and my family). I found that the container was quite uncomfortable for me: The fact that it had a lip made it even worse! I usually prefer sprays to make everything easier and faster.

Dr Bronner's was founded in 1948 by Emanuel Bronner, a third- generation master soap maker who used the labels on his ecological soaps to spread messages of unity. A company that honors this vision by making socially and environmentally responsible products. This brand works with farmers to implement regenerative organic practices: increasing biodiversity, enriching the soil and helping to combat climate change.

A body lotion that nourishes and hydrates skin with good ingredients: organic jojoba oil to heal and soothe, organic coconut oil to moisturize, organic hemp and avocado oils to keep skin smooth and supple. This organic lotion is good for most skin types, sensitive-dry-rough-or combination. Gentle enough to be used anywhere—hands, face or body.

It is highly emollient, so start with a small amount. Keep a bottle by your sink and apply a pea-sized amount after hand-washing. Put it on right out of the shower, before skin dries. Just a few squirts will cover the whole body and absorb quickly into skin.

What I Like

  • It is quickly absorbed

What I Don't Like

  • Super light

Lightly whipped for the ultimate in Kindness, Human+Kind’s 2-in-1 light and fluffy Body Soufflé is quickly absorbed to leave your skin feeling super moisturized and soft to the touch.

As regards its ingredients, the key ones I'll mention are the following:

  • Antioxidant: Tocopherol (Significant photoprotection against UVB rays. It also has emollient properties)
  • Skin-identical ingredient: Glycerin (Not only a simple moisturizer but knows much more: keeps the skin lipids between our skin cells in a healthy state, protects against irritation, helps to restore barrier)
  • Soothing: Bisabolol (It's a clear oily fluid that is used in skincare as a nice anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredient)

If you don't like light, super light lotions, this is not the most accurate product for you. It is a super light body lotion which makes it fantastic for the summer since you might never feel sticky after applying it. However, it is so light that it doesn't moisturizes your body so well.

What I Like

  • Moisturizing texture
  • Skin- smoothing effect
  • Recharging scent

What I Don't Like

  • The pump bottle requires a lot of pumping action to dispense the product
  • Expensive

An incredible Vegan Probiotics body lotion that keeps your skin moisturized and helps balance your skin's microbiome. As regards its composition, it is made with:

  • Vegan Pre+Probiotics: Fermented oats with lactobacillus fermentation that help maintain a healthy skin micro biome:
  • Tibet Mushroom: A combination of lactobacillus and yeast that helps make your skin moist and healthy. |
  • Coconut Milk: Vegetable milk extracted from coconut pulp that moisturizes and smooths skin.

This lotion can truly be considered a mil one since a skin irritation test has been carried on 34 men and women aged from 30-50 to truly know if it can considered a lotion containing a non- irritating formula that can be used on sensitive skin.

lotion 8 2
lotion 8 3

To sum up,this body wash is nice and has a pleasant aroma but it is subtle. However, the pump bottle requires a lot of pumping action to dispense the product and $17 is very expensive for such a small amount. In my opinion, if you live on a tight budget, it is still possible to get better products at a cheaper price.

At first, I was super excited to finally find a decent, natural lotion. It smell's really good, feels nice and seems to do a good job moisturizing.
That being said, I felt completely disappointed when I found out that they taint a good product with #40 red dye. If the product is good, and especially if it is claiming "natural", then why do you apply #40 red dye in it?

A 100% vegetarian brand that loves their friends as we do. One of the reasons I choose this brand over and over again is because none of the products nor the ingredients are tasted on animals. Their products contain no meat or by-products of animals and they also exclude all cruelly obtained animal ingredients.
