Here's what she had to say:

"I love finding natural bath and beauty products that are not only healthy for my skin but SMELL GOOD! Some natural things just smell a little too earthy for me. Skin Free sent me some Whipped Tamanu Body Butter, an Extra Moisturizing Soap & Shampoo Bar and the Acai Scrub for Sparkling Skin. First of all you must know the Skin Free Skin Care products are all natural and vegan. They do not contain harsh chemicals or petroleum-based ingredients. The best thing you can do for your skin and body is use natural products!

Whipped Tamanu Body Butter- This body butter is amazing! It is NOT GREASY! I just put some on a couple seconds ago and my hands are soft, moisturized but without the residue and grease that most other products leave behind. My skin looks healthy and clear, too. As for the scent it reminds me of roses with a hint of citrus! It really is delicious. I don't have anything negative to say about this amazing body butter that has become a staple in my house! Best part is that it is natural and safe to use on my kids and baby, too!

Extra Moisturizing Soap & Shampoo Bar- This soap can be used for your face, body or hair! I haven't had a chance to use it on my hair. It is a clean soap that gets your skin clean and washes away well. Most soaps leave a residue that you can feel and can leave your skill dull. NOT this soap!

Acai Scrub for Sparkling Skin- Now this scrub is a more natural scent than the Tamanu Body Butter but it happens to be my favorite bath and beauty product to review to date! You get the powerful antioxidants from the Acai berry and the scrubbing power of the granules for optimal exfoliation. I use this scrub on my face, my body, my knees and elbows and heels. It softens the rough patches but is gentle, leaving my skin clean and clear. It feels so amazing to rub this into your skin, especially your face and to wash off all the stress, dirt and grime. My skin is dry and sometimes I get mild rosacea. I love having products that are natural AND help fight the problems my skin sometimes faces due to the environment and my makeup. This is a must-have product for people of all skin types!!! The only problem that I had was that it leaked in the box when it was shipped. The leak had no affect on the product quality and was just a shipping mishap.

Skin Free has many more products for people with sensitive skin or blemish problems. You should know that Skin Free products are formulated and designed by pharmacist, Julie Hilton, a sufferer from skin allergies and blemish problems. She created this line of products for people who needed a skin regimen without the harsh chemicals. Read the About Us page for more information!

Thanks, Joy, for the great review!
