Grateful For Grateful Body Products (Review)
Have you seen or done a Thankful List? I've done a Thankful list of 10 and I've seen lists go as high as 100 things that a person is thankful for! (Try it sometime, it's very therapeutic and cathartic) If I were to do a list of just 25 things, Grateful Body Products would make that list! I'm so glad that I found this company! When I use a product from Grateful Body, I feel as if my body is so appreciative of the wonderful ingredients that are soaking into my skin, cleansing, moisturizing and healing.. My nose thanks me for the beautiful smells that surround me as I cleanse my face, my pores drink in the vital and pure botanical ingredients found in the ocean and far reaches of the world, my eyes can see the difference in my skin and my hands can tell how soft and smooth my skin is, thanks to regular use of Grateful Body products.
Grateful Body was founded in 1998 by a family who was and is aware of the fact that the skin extracts nourishment from "food", just as our bodies extract nourishment from the same. "If you use conventional make-up on a daily basis, you can absorb almost 5 pounds of chemicals into your body each year -- and that's without adding in body lotion, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner and other personal care products!" I don't think that is the kind of food we are talking about when we want to take care of our skin!
I have been lucky enough to use their cleanser twice and their moisturizer and the sea cell serum for awhile now. I am absolutely in love with these products. My philosophy has always been to use naturally based cleansers and skin care products. But I believe these products go above and beyond because of the specialized formulations, the quality of their ingredients and the absolute integrity of the finished products! Wow is all I can say!
If I were forced to pick a favorite product, it would have to be the cleanser! I've never had a cleanser that will actually do several things besides clean my face. The Grateful Body Cleanser first of all is an aromatherapy session all on its own. When I use the cleanser, I am transported to a garden of exotic plants and flowers and I feel very calm and peaceful when using it. The ingredients are designed to nourish your face even as you cleanse. So when I cleanse, I massage the cleanser into my face for a minute or so, letting the beautiful ingredients soak into my skin. The skin seems to just drink it up, yet my face is so clean after I'm through! There is no tight feeling afterwords, like some cleansers leave with dry skinned women like me. So now, a routine that I often disliked has now become one of my favorite times!
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the Moisturizer and the restorative Sea Cell Serum! I feel so bad because it's like my skin is literally starving for this stuff as it drinks it up so quickly and leaves no oily residue behind. I thought I was doing really great things for my skin, but I see now that I could have been doing a lot more!
You want to try these products and so let me give you some great news! They have their Skin Basic Sets for 25% off for a limited time. The Basics set includes a Cleanser, Toner and Moisturizer in your choice of normal, dry, sensitive or oily! It's a great deal!
If you want even more say in what goes into your products, Grateful Body has a perfect option for you. You can design your own product! For instance you can choose the cleanser for dry skin and customize it even more. You start with the Basic Cleanser and choose up to two Booster's for it! I chose to add Skin Fitness with a great blend of greens, berries, sea veggies and sea salts! So good!
And one other great deal! Use the code CUSTOM20 and get 20% off on all custom designer products! Last, but not least, I am excited to let you know that I will be hosting a very special giveaway from Grateful Body! Please check back next week for the details! You won't want to miss this one! Grateful Body - I think it's a very fitting name for a wonderful line of products!
