Dr. Bronner's | Peppermint Organic Lotion

I don't know a health food store or health food section of a store that doesn't have Dr. Bronner's products lining the shelves. To be honest, I see their products pretty much everywhere. Dr. Bronner's brand is a classic choice and a great place to start when you're just starting to switch over to cleaner, natural, greener products. They have lotions, lip balms, hair care, even toothpaste. My favourite and first product I used by them was actually their castile soap (review on that to come!) I use it as body wash, laundry detergent, makeup brush cleaner, the list goes on.

Love companies that make products that not only do good for your body, but also have a positive impact locally and globally? Then I recommend checking out Dr. Bronner's page on Activism, where among many things they discuss their involvement in: organic integrity in personal care products, promotion of authentic fair trade and environmental protection. Also, check out Dr Bronner's Family Foundation and how the company gives back.

Since I adored their castile soap so much, I knew I wanted to branch out and try their other products. Plus their ingredients are crazy healthy and pure. And they have peppermint scented everything, so the choice wasn't difficult for me.

This lotion, first of all, is delicious and smells like a candy cane. I could stop there, but it's also silky and nourishing for your skin. I planned to use this in the summer because the peppermint has a subtle cooling effect. But, I've still been using it well into the winter months! It has a multitude of skin-loving oils. Jojoba, coconut oils to moisturize and hemp and avocado oil keeps skin smooth and supple. It's more moisturizing then other lotions I've used. But, it's certainly not as moisturizing as a body butter. It's a great in-between for when I need to help my dry skin but don't want to grease up with something thicker like shea butter.

I typically use this right after I shower when my skin is still damp. This way it spreads easier and you get more use out of it. Although, to be honest a little already goes a long way. This lotion seriously is lasting me forever. Dr. Bronner's website says this is gentle enough to use this anywhere on your body, including your face. I have only used it as a hand/body lotion, but I'm sure it would be fine on the face.
