Urban Alchemist Product Review

IMG_1078-3.jpg

I love finding new local green beauty lines that also use organic, cruelty free + all natural ingredients. I've been using Urban Alchemists product line since the fall and they've been super effective to keeping my skin hydrated through the driest months of the year. I would have to say that the best part about this line is their heavenly aromas! 

Green beauty is finally starting to become more mainstream as companies awaken to chemical-free living and I couldn't be happier about that. Natalie from Urban Alchemist built her brand to provide products consumers can trust by offering 100% natural, fair trade, organic, free from parabens, synthetic preservatives + harmful fragrances as well as being as locally sourced as possible. The price points on her line are super reasonable which makes shopping green that much more accessible if you're looking to make the switch.

I'll write a little review of my fav items below which you can click through to find all the ingredients on the Urban Alchamist website!

Lavender Body Butter

I love anything Lavender! I find floral infused products are so calming which makes them perfect to use just before bed. This whipped butter applies with ease and is super soothing and hydrating to the skin.

Calendula Healing Balm

While nothing seems to completely heal my eczema, this calendula, shea and cocoa butter infused balm has certainly been helping to maintain my hands from splitting open from dryness. What I enjoy most about this product is that it doesn't burn my skin in the slightest no matter how raw my skin is. It's super soothing and really good to apply before bed since it's a bit on the oilier side!

Grapefruit + Lime Deodorant Cream

Natural deodorant isn't for everyone but I certainly am a huge fan! This little pot of magic has a super soft citrus infused scent and has been working great for me when applied in a thick coat. The true test will be in summer when I'm running and roasting in the blazing sun but so far so good!

Cocoa + Cookie Body Scrub

This exfoliating scrub literally smells to die for! It's hard not to want to taste just a little bit of it lol. I have tried a few different blends of the scrubs and they are all wonderful. They are gentle and leave your skin super moisturized post exfoliation due to the shea + coconut butter blended with coconut oil.

Lavender + Lemon Face Polish

Much like the body scrub, I am an equal fan of the face polish. It smells amazing, is super gentle on the skin and also leaves your face feeling moisturized after. The essential oil blend in this product is totally on point! It includes rosehip seed oil, lavender essential oil, lemon essential oil, and frankincense.
