Pink Himalayan Salt
Pink Himalayan Salt.  My new love. Happy Love Heart Did you know that pink salt is a mineral dense form of sea salt that is mined from the Himalayan Mountains? And that is why it has that pretty pink color?  Neither did I!  The beautiful pink and red hues of Himalayan Salt are an indication of its mineral and iron content.   This amazingly beautiful salt is RICH in 84 nourishing and skin-replenishing minerals...Just the thing to wash away the dirt and grime from hours of working in the garden and bringing some softness and brightness back to your hands!

Skinny & Co Rejuvenating Cleanser Review

Skinny & Co has a new line of products that they are calling the Skinny Raw Beauty Line. 

The Skinny Raw Beauty line is perfect for all skin types. We combined our patented 100% RAW NutraLock™ coconut oil with therapeutic-grade essential oils and other pure oils to bring you skincare as nature intended. Raw Beauty will give you everything you need to moisturize, repair, and protect your skin - NATURALLY. All of our raw beauty products contain 5 ingredients or less, Chemical Free, and contain 100% virgin Skinny coconut oil.
5 ingredients or less | Chemical Free | Made with Therapuedic grade essential oils No Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates
I had the opportunity to review a full-size product from their Skinny Raw Line and I was sent the Skinny Rejuvenating Cleansing Balm.  What I love the most about this product is that it contains only 5 ingredients and they are ingredients that I can pronounce! 

Active Ingredients:
100% RAW Patented NutraLock™ Coconut Oil (cocos nucifera) penetrates the skin, hydrates lipid barrier, moisturizes, calms and soothes
Sandalwood Oil (santalum spicatum) can stimulate muscles which can prevent sagging skin 
Ylang Ylang Oil (cananga odorata) effective in maintaining moisture and oil balance of the skin. Keeps skin hydrated, smooth and young. Fights wrinkles.
Patchouli Oil (pogostemon cablin benth) can prevent sagging skin and is a known anti-aging cleanser
Jasmine Oil (jasminum officinale)rehydrates dry and dehydrated skin. Fades scars and wrinkles. Penetrates deep layers of the skin. Rebalances moisture.

I have used this product now for 2 weeks and let me tell you what.  I am hooked!  This is a facial cleanser that I plan to never run out of.  It's the easiest product to use:  You just Place a quarter-size amount onto a warm washcloth or electric face brush and gently work into skin with a circular motion. Wipe off with a clean, warm washcloth.  You can also use this product as a moisturizer or as a make-up remover.
