Grateful Body Oil Review & Giveaway ** Closed **


 
I just had an email from Grateful Body Oil and they are giving anyone who orders on Friday, October 28th a 40% off. Please use this code when ordering: skintreat40

I was very fortunate to be able to review Grateful Body Oil! This is a great company whose philosophy is that their products are Food For Your Skin and they are absolutely right! I loved using these products and waited awhile before doing my review because I wanted to really experience the whole system they sent me. They base their products on what type of skin you have so it is not a one size fits all kinda company. I have dry skin and that is exactly what they sent me!

Here is what I got to try:

1. Hydrating Cleanse Facial Cleanser
2. Dry/Normal Skin Facial Toner
3. Dry Skin Facial Moisturizer
4. Midnight Oil Body Oil

I have to tell you I have tried alot of skin cleansers before but none that looked like face moisturizer when I pumped it out of the bottle! It was rich and creamy and if you did not see the label on the bottle you would swear it was moisturizer! And it smells exactly like it came out of a flower garden! That is because it is made organically from a marigold/turmeric blend and why is this wonderful golden color when it comes out of the pump.

Sometimes I get cleansers that leave my face tight or dry but this one did not. It went on smoothly and cleaned my face perfectly! I really loved this product almost from the start. And the great thing is they send it in this really cute but recycled containers made of cardboard with the beautiful labels. All their products are chemical free and safe for sensitive skin.

I am a big fan of toners. There is something about them that really makes my face feel fresh and clean. Grateful Body's Toner for dry/normal skin is a great skin moisture mist that is filled with nutrients that will hydrate your skin and firm it while promoting the skin's natural balance. It also plumps up the skin while cells shrink to give your face a great glow! It is 100% Natural & Synthetic Free.

There are way too many flowers listed in the ingredients for me to tell you about here but go to their site and read all the wonderful ingredients that are in each & every one of their products. This is for the normal/dry skin types but all you have to do is click on your skin type to find the ingredients listed.

Umm, what can I say about the moisturizer? Well, it has an even longer list than the toner did in ingredients but the three most important ones are cocoa butter, avocado oil and millet seed. You need the cocoa butter to moisturize the skin, avocado oil has essential fatty acids that encourages proper hydration while the millet seed stimulates cell & tissue regeneration.

It is also an anti-inflammatory that brightens your skin to make it look healthy. It goes on lightly and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and not heavy like some other creams tend to do. If you have dry skin this is the perfect moisturizer for you if all your life, like me, have used those heavy creams that made you feel like you had just put on paste or a thick filmy grease like feeling! Ugh, who wants that?
 
Lastly, the Midnight Body Oil! Oh, I really loved this one! It goes on smooth and has a light scent that they say both men and women can use. You can either use it as you get out of the shower or bath and put on while skin is still wet or wait until you dry off then put on. Or if you do take baths, pour a little in your bath to get that silky feeling all over! Again, there are too many ingredients to list but the three main ones are Avocado Oil to penetrate and soften the skin, Black Cumin Seed Oil protects and sustains human skin tissue.

This seed oil has been used in the middle east for generations as a medicinal oil. Next is the Evening Primrose Oil has the highest GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) which promotes healthy youthful skin and has beneficial anti-inflammatory properties. I love to put it on my feet. I have deeply dry skin on my feet and legs and the heels have cracked skin and this oil has been helping with that issue.

All of these products that are made especially for dry skin have been one of the best I have tried in a long time. If you have any skin issues, no matter it is, look around on Grateful Body's site and see if some of their products might help you. Again, they send you the products that fit your skin type, not all types, but your skin type. You won't be sorry that you at least tried a product to see what you think about them. But I am betting you will love them as much as I do!

Here is just a quick little history about the company. There was so much more I could have put here but it would have been endless so if you want to read the rest of their journal please feel free to do so.

As always I quote from their site:

Greetings to our long-time faithful customers and to our yet-to-be customers. My name is Shannon and I am the Founder and Formulator for Grateful Body Skin Care. This is a personal letter from me to you. But first, please forgive a bit of nostalgic rambling. . . I remember my sixth-grade teacher letting us create a terrarium - it was a rather large glass case where we planted and tended lots of little enchanting plants. We were probably learning about botany. It was a magical little world and I would gaze into it, transfixed for long periods of time. I also remember being very fond of helping my Mom care for the many plants in our yard. Just two small experiences, but I guess from a very early age, I loved to get my hands in the soil and work with plants.

This love led to more than three decades of studying plants. I've tried to understand plants and healing through several different systems, including traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic, Tibetan and Old World medicine and most interesting to me, Native American approaches. My first business in this field was called Middle Path Herbals, created in Seattle in 1982. It was here that I learned the pleasure of being surrounded by powerful healing plants and using them to make effective, therapeutic products. At this time I saw it was necessary to make sure the plants were grown in such a way to keep their vitality and integrity. This concern is still one of my main priorities.

Grateful Body was created in 1998. The name of the company is a reflection of my desire to be more grateful. Over the years I had started to see what an incredible and mysterious thing this body was, and how many phenomenal things it could do. How it healed itself, how it was a part of gaia, how full of life it was. And I had one! I was grateful to have a body! To eat with, to travel with, to love with, to understand with, to serve with - I became a grateful body (and no, the name had nothing to do with the Grateful Dead, even if we are based in Berkeley!).

I want to try the sensitive skin, though I probably need the oily. It's just that as I age, my skin has become as fickle as I am.
