My kids know I have three go-to gifts. If they can’t think of anything to get me, grab one of those three and they are good to go! Hand soap is one of those said gifts. Not just any hand soap though… you knew there was a catch… My FAVORITE is lavender! This lavender foaming hand soap from Kosmatology may just be my fave of my favorite gifts.

Lavender has calming properties that has been used for centuries to help people relax and rest easier. Not only is this soap from Kosmatology my favorite scent it’s ORGANIC! What we put ON our bodies is just as important as what we put IN our bodies – Kosmatology knows that and uses only the finest ingredients for their skin line. 

 

Rose Geranium Facial Products

I had never tried Rose Geranium until these products. The rose geranium helps by reducing puffiness (think long sleepless nights that are synonomous with the word MOM) and lines. It also helps with circulation under the skin’s surface which may aid in cell regeneration!

Naternal is a female operated, small company that focuses on making a difference in people’s lives with products made of vegan and hemp derived ingredients. If you’re experiencing a sleepless period, then the REST CBD + CBN product will be of great help. I use it to ease my mind and rest in the hyper busy periods. The CBD combined with the lavender and vanilla flavor help me have a goodnight sleep and leave all stressful thoughts behind.

Soothe Body Butter

Also, as I like my skin to look good no matter what, I use the Soothe Body Butter. Naternal made an excellent job with it creating a special combination of ingredients that keep the skin looking healthy and radiant. Apart from CBD, which is the star ingredient, this product also contains cocoa, coconut, and shea butter, together with a nourishing, high-quality sunflower oil. While you may think that its texture might become too heavy with all these ingredients, I’ll have to tell you the opposite. It has a lightweight texture that offers high levels of hydration and keeps you away from the greasy feeling. Don’t miss them out and include them in your beauty and relaxation rituals!

Prana Principle CBD Shampoo & Conditioner

When I think of a way to spoil myself, the first thing that pops into my mind is a relaxing bath and a luxury treat for my hair. Prana Principle seems to have read my mind when they created the CBD Shampoo & Conditioner bundle. With a discrete infusion of peppermint, these products are ideal for all hair types. I like them for the invigorating sensation that I noticed after each use. Besides, my hair looks great and I got rid of the scalp dryness and inflammation.

What makes these products special? Apart from the unique ingredient, which is CBD, they convinced me because:

  • They are made of organic and non-GMO hemp
  • None of the products contain alcohol, sulfate, or paraben
  • The products have been lab-tested to ensure potency and purity
  • None of the products was tested on animals.

Make your hair look like in the movies and build self-confidence with an amazing look!
