Cruelty Free Body Lotion

It’s summer ladies and that usually means a little more skin is showing and it’s gotta be in tip top shape for showing off. Soft, moisturized and glowing is what I’m going for! And even though it’s the summer, I have a love affair with long hot showers. I can’t help it. My husband teases me that he could boil tea with the temperature I use, and I know it’s hot, but feels SO good.

Unfortunately, long hot showers are a recipe for drier skin. Very hot water strips your skin of the natural oil barrier it has leaving with you less than desirable results.  I am trying to get used to luke warm showers but it’s going to take some time. Until then, I rely on moisturizers to get my skin to look like a million bucks. I’m currently using OZ Naturals Olive and Jojoba Oil Nourishing Souffle and totally love the way my skin feels after using it. My husband loves it too!

I thought by the feel of this product it would have some type of silicone in it because it’s not quite lotion-y and not thick like a cream, but leaves your skin feeling silky without greasy shine. It absorbs completely and leave behind a very clean fresh scent and soft-to-the-touch skin. The formula includes skin nourishing ingredients such as organic aloe vera, olive oil, jojoba oil, organic green tea, shea butter, and Vitamin B5.

aloe vera – moisturizes the skin

olive oil – rich in vitamins and antioxidants to keep skin young and healthy looking

jojoba oil – mimics sebum, our natural skin barrier to lock moisture in

green tea – has antioxidant properties to keep skin young while fighting free radicals

vitamin B5 – also known as panathenol, delays premature signs of aging

I like to apply more throughout the day to extra dry areas like my elbows and knees. It’s also safe to use on your face if you have dry skin, which definitely happens to me sometimes around my mouth so I slather on a little dab around my mouth and on my lips. And a little goes a long way!

I have really grown to love the OZ Naturals brand more and more with each product I’ve tested. In case you missed them, the Amino Herbal Hydration Mask is the absolute BOMB for facial masks and recommended for anyone and everyone to try, and the Hyaluronic acid serum with vitamin C has treated my skin very well!  I hope to try their exfoliant next!

The  OZ Naturals Olive and Jojoba Oil Nourishing Souffle comes in a very large tube that should last you quite some time applying it all over from the neck down. You can purchase on amazon or directly on their website.   To find out more about OZ Naturals you can find them on Facebook or Instagram.

I love it when you discover a new product that really makes you think, WOW.  I’ve had the pleasure of testing out OZ Naturals before and was pretty impressed with one of their serums, and luckily was invited to try out another product of theirs.  If you missed my previous review of the hyaluronic acid serum you can view it here.  Today, I get to share with you my experience with their Amino Herbal Hydration Mask.

oz naturals Amino Herbal Hydration mask Review by Iliketotalkblog

As someone with acneic skin, I tend to steer clear of “hydrating” masks as I’m afraid of how my skin my react.  I know acne-prone skin needs moisture, but I usually stick to just serums or moisturizers and use mask for exfoliation or soaking up excess oil. I recently had a facial and was told she used a hydrating mask so I figured it couldn’t hurt to try this one out. Especially since it said it was gentle enough for daily use!

OZ Naturals Amino Herbal Hydration Mask is vegan and cruelty-free.  The formula claims to plump up the skin and hydrate tired skin that needs nourishment.  The main highlighted ingredients are hyaluronic acid, Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E.  As we’ve discussed before, hyaluronic acid is a powerhouse ingredient for helping skin lock in moisture and can hold up to 1000 times it weight in water.  Vitamin B5 helps repair the skin so that it works better at locking in the moisture, and Vitamin E is known as an antioxidant to fight free radical damage.  The formula also uses glycerin which is a humectant and pulls moisture into the skin, and includes a variety of amino acids to strengthen the skin while providing anti-aging properties.

The directions say to use this mask (daily, if you choose) after you cleanse and exfoliate.  Just apply a layer and relax for 10 to 15 minutes to do its magic, and then rinse clean.  The mask is a clear gel and has a slight botanical scent to it, which I only notice when I squeeze out of the tube, but not when it’s on my face.  I apply a semi-thick layer and was surprised to see that most of it actually absorbs right into the skin.  By the time you wash it off, it looks like you have a thin peel-off mask on because so much has sunk in.

The first week I had this product I DID use it daily.  I was so happy with the results on the first night that I wanted to use it again and again. My skin felt incredibly soft after rinsing it away that I couldn’t help but keep touching my face which is a big no no, but I couldn’t help it!  My skin looked hydrated and helped some areas that got really dry from acne treatments I was trying out at home.  Now that I’ve had this product for a couple weeks I lessened my usage to a couple times a week so that I can stretch the product out longer.  After, I dab some of the hyaluronic acid serum to finish out my nightly routine and don’t feel the need for an extra layer of moisturizer.

I’m happy to report this didn’t cause any acne flare ups or appear to clog my pores any further than they already are!  The last thing acne-prone skin needs in products that settle in the pores and create more pimples!

The size of the tube is good at 4 oz. and I expect it to last quite some time. The price is bearable at under $22 on amazon, so you don’t need to “save up” to buy a replacement later on.

OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum Review

I have a very large collection of face serums. Why? Because I LOVE switching off all the time depending on how my skin is acting. Serums are a great way to nourish the skin without the heavy feel of a cream or lotion. I was excited to try OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Vitamin C because my skin has been misbehaving lately; having bouts of acne and dry patches all the same time. Fun times!

OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Vitamin C iliketotalkalot

OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Vitamin C is a botanically derived lightweight hydrating serum that utilizes the power of hyaluronic acid to moisturize the skin by locking in water into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is know to hold up to 1000 times in weight in water, plumping the skin and fighting the early signs of aging as well as inflammation. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that also increases collagen production which also helps in combating premature aging. Not only does it increase collagen production but also works to lighten hyperpigmentation (dark spots caused by scarred acne or sun damage). It’s a great combination of ingredients for anti-aging while keeping the skin hydrated which is so important for many reasons.

This serum has very light scent from the ingredients. There is no perfume but something in there gives off a scent, not sure what it is but it goes away after applying it. The consistency is thicker than water but not quite gel like and I suspect its the ingredient hydroxyetheyl cellulose that thickens it up a bit.  I like that it’s a bit thicker and can be spread over the skin easily. Watery type serums tend to fall between my skin fingers and I end up rubbing my entire hand front and back on my face to get it all on there!

OZ Naturals made a great serum that absorbs completely and takes no waiting time to apply makeup right over it. I usually apply a moisturizer like Cereve on top of it, but sometimes I skip the extra step and go straight to the foundation.

The bottle is decent size, I don’t usually see them get much bigger than the typical 1 fl oz but should last you through a couple of months with daily use.  You can purchase OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Vitamin C on Amazon or their direct website.
