Where are all my Texas girls? This soap and skincare line is coming to you direct from Austin, TX. American made products that are natural and super good. From soap to scrubs, Gentle Bees is one my favorites. We’ve chatted before about Gentle Bees candle melts so I was super excited to dive into their body line.
First up we have this incredible Austin Soap. I just looooove it. In memory of the city where the Founder started the Gentle Bees brand; he wanted to show his appreciation for all the positive experiences he encountered while in Austin. He gave the new soap the name “Austin”; and it’s made with the finest natural ingredients. This soap smells amazing and keeps my skin super moisturized!
Next up, I tried out the Gentle Bees Cinnamon Abyssinian Soap. The first of it’s kind made with abyssinian oil to condition, moisturize, promote elasticity and reduce wrinkles. It’s a non-greasy hypoallergenic products high in Vitamin C. Improves manageability, shine, and protects against irritants. I love using this in the summer because it’s been keeping my skin super hydrated. It’s gentle enough that I’ve even tried it on my face.
Usually I am not a fan of anything that has a patchouli scent so I was a little apprehensive to try this one. I’m glad I did. It’s ahhhhmazing. It has a super unique smell that I can’t really put my finger on but it’s fabulous.
The colloidal oatmeal is rich in saponins, which are chemical compounds found in numerous plant species. These saponins give oatmeal and oatmeal colloids remarkable cleansing, moisturizing and soothing qualities that produce wonderfully nourishing and invigorating bath soaps. Colloidal Oatmeal treats numerous skin conditions. The oats are rich in beta-glucans, which are polysaccharides that can reduce skin inflammation, activate immune cells in the skin and stimulate collagen deposition.
If you suffer from an type of inflammatory skin condition, colloidal oatmeal works best to ease it and often cure it. Sunburn, eczema, diaper rashes, poison ivy, acne, bites, psoriasis and more can all be soothed. This soap is my new secret weapon.
Anything that says moroccan is pretty much sure to have me on board. The rose hip oil in this soap makes it smell amazing and becomes super sudsy. Perfect for hot summer days to keep your skin hydrated.
And now for the main event, in my opinion. Gentle Bees Lemon Sugar Scrub. GAH, it smells so good. I am always using scrubs and I have even done some DIYS but I love trying out new ones. This is such a gentle exfoliant, I’ve used it on both my body and face. It’s fantabulous! Made with Abyssinian oil to condition, moisturize, promote elasticity and reduce wrinkles. Sugar penetrates the skin cells, generating rejuvenating, younger-looking skin. Lemon sugar scrub prevents acne, whiteheads, blackheads, and other skin blemishes.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that at Hairspray and Highheels, we are HUGE fans of Gentle Bees products!
