Someone recently asked me on Instagram what my body care routine is like and although it’s a lot similar to that of my face, it’s a lot simpler. I always like to cleanse with a hydrating wash, exfoliate regularly and of course moisturize.
Just as I was thinking of switching up my body care products, Original Cosmetics ng reached out to me to try three of the Dr Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt products. They sent me the Dr Teals Pure Epsom Salt Body Scrub with Lavender*, the Ultra Moisturizing Soothe & Sleep Body Wash with Lavender* and the Moisture + Soothing Lavender Body Lotion*. I was eager to try this line as they claim to hydrate and soothe the skin. Before we move on, let’s talk a bit about the Dr Teal’s brand.
Dr Teal’s is an American brand that makes organic, benefit based and therapeutic skin and body care products. Their products are made with pure epsom salt and variants of essential oils. Over time Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) has proven to soothe muscle aches and pains, exfoliate dead skin cells, improve sleep and reduce stress.
Dr Teals Pure Epsom Salt Body Scrub with Lavender* contains tiny white granules that are not harsh or scratchy on the skin. It says to contain Shea butter, Jojoba oil, Lavender essential oil which works to renew, refresh and hydrate the skin. I find this the mildest body scrub I’ve ever used. I also noticed that after I used it, my skin felt soft, smooth and moisturized.
Body acne has been around for a while now and the one thing that really helps control them are hydrating body washes. I was happy to try the Dr Teal’s Ultra Moisturizing Soothe & Sleep Body Wash with Lavender* as it claims to ‘hydrate the skin and soothe your body promoting a better night sleep’. I love that it contains Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Shea Butter which i know to be good for the skin! This bath formula is non-irritating and hydrating enough to keep my body clear from breaking out.
I usually gravitate towards lotions, creams or butters that has cocoa butter in it and I was so delighted to know that Dr Teals Moisture + Soothing Lavender Body Lotion* had not only cocoa butter but Vitamin E and Lavender oil in it. What more could a dark skin girl ask for? Cocoa butter and Vitamin E help even out the skin’s complexion, soften and moisturize the skin. This lotion really does hydrate my skin. It’s fast absorbent and gives my skin that silky look. Best part is it’s not greasy or sweaty on the skin.
Needless to say, the fragrance of this line is heavenly!!! Never have I used body products that smelled lovelier. Feels like i’m having mini spa sessions every time I scrub and bath. Getting to smell so wonderful stepping of the bathroom is definitely a plus for me. I honestly love everything I’ve tried.
