Aromafloria Review + Giveaway

Friday, August 12, 2011

I've been trying out three new to me products from a truly eco-friendly line called Aromafloria.  I have used their delightful foot products before and I was really excited to have the chance to try some of their Kiwi Coconut items for review.



How lovely they are for summer! I'd like to share my thoughts on each of the 3 products and then tell you all about the giveaway from Aromafloria.



Sensory Fusion Kiwi Coconut Foaming Body Wash with Shea Butter


This is really nice! It is lightweight, lightly foaming without containing harsh sulfates, and makes your skin feel nice and clean without it feeling stripped.  I feel like my skin is really cared for with the aloe vera and shea butter, too.  The light aroma, courtesy of a natural essential oil blend and natural flavoring, reminds me of being at a luxurious spa. This, like all the other Aromafloria items, is free of SLS, parabens, and other toxins.

Overall grade: A-


Sensory Fusion Kiwi Coconut Whipped Body Butter with Shea & Aloe 



This is called a body butter, but I would call it a light body cream.  It is not thick or heavy at all and I would recommend this one for someone with normal to more oily skin. I like a thick and nourishing cream and this is much lighter than that to me.  I think it's because of the whipped, light texture.  That said, it is very cooling and soothing thanks to the aloe and shea and it really is  nice for a hot summer day. The aroma is quite nice, however, this one does contain artificial fragrance which I have tried to eliminate from my routine. All in all, it is a nice product, but I do wish it were a tad more natural. If you still use fragrance (not from essential oils), then you'll love this.

Overall grade: B


Kiwi Coconut Salt Creme Buff



If you know me at all from this blog, then you know how much I just love a good salt scrub.  I'll take a high-quality salt scrub over a sugar scrub any day (and I do like these, too). I like it to be extra scratchy and rich, but I know that most people prefer something lighter.  This scrub is for you!  It is not heavy or oily at all, nor is it thick.  That doesn't mean it won't work, though.  It is lightweight and isn't rough or harsh at all. It smells luscious--without artificial fragrance--and can even be used on those with oily skin. This is a nice one to exfoliate arms, legs, and torso. It's a winner!

Overall grade: A-


The Chic & Green Bottom Line

This is a luxury line--no doubt about it.  The three items will cost you $75.  That said, it is really a nice line for those who splurge on their products or who are looking for a special gift.

Do you want to own these three great items?  Aromafloria is giving one lucky C & G reader the three items I reviewed.
