Do you have dry skin during the summer? You’re not alone. My skin just stays dry throughout the year and can even get worst in the summer. Most skin problem during the summer is caused by bug bite (yuck) and the dry skin, according to Ronald Brancaccio, MD, director of the Skin Institute of New York and clinical professor of dermatology at New York University School of Medicine. If you are like me, often I switch out my lotion and body wash this time of year to go with one more suited for the summer. I look for washes and creams to have a very fruity fragrance that can still tackle the dry skin.
In 1996, Kevin and Mare Wachs, founders of Earthly Body, started creating quality natural personal care products in their garage in Chatsworth, CA. Today, Earthly Body has grown into a respected family owned company. Earthly Body has become an industry leader in beauty, adult, and natural products and is one of the pre-eminent manufacturers of hemp-based personal care, both in the US and internationally. Their collection of natural, vegan, and paraben-free skincare and body care products, which are hemp oil based and cruelty-free, have caught the eye of many media outlets, such as Allure and Lucky magazine. Not only has this company caught the eye of the media, but celebrities alike.
When it comes to summertime bath & body product, I look for not only the moisture a product can offer, but the scent. I choose the Earth Body Dreamsicle, to test out for this post. Over the past week, I tried their body wash and their skin butter, both of which smell just like a Dreamsicle! When it comes to the skin butter, not only do I love this product, but so does my husband. The scent is not overpowering at all and just leaves a lasting orange fragrance. It does not leave your skin feeling greasy, which is the biggest plus for us. My husband has a tattoo sleeve, so in the summer he likes them to look bright and bold. To achieve this effect, he has to have moisturized skin. He has actually taken this from me because he likes it so much. We both smell like a beautiful walking dreamsicle and love it!!
The Dreamsicle Body Wash is just like the skin butter and has that same amazing scent. Nothing like relaxing in a nice bath that smells like oranges and cream. The wash itself lathers very nicely, and you don’t need to use much of the product to indulge yourself in the sweet wash. I have used both of these products together and can really notice a big difference in the way my skin feels throughout these hot days. I am moisturized and ready to dive into summer.
There was nothing that I did not like about the Earthly Body Hemp Seed, Dreamsicle. The smell was incredible as well as the product itself. Both left my skin feeling refreshed and smoothed. Maybe the only thing that I did not like was that my husband stole the skin butter! I am so happy to be able to share with you something I am extremely confident in recommending for the summer. I have very sensitive skin, and I had no problems with either of these products. I do warn you. However, you will find yourself taking deep breaths enjoying the fragrance.
In my product postings, most of the products have been received free for my honest review. I will always give my honest opinion. All images and posts are property of Hello Betty.
