Christine at @28litsea was kind enough to send over some of her products for me to review and I’m so grateful. Christine is a school counselor turned clean beauty enthusiast and creative. Litsea is an essential oil known for its citrus scent & energizing qualities as noted on the website. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Top Note Wild Citrus Body Oil: This is to be used after showering on damp skin. I use facial oils regularly, but never body oils so this was new to me. I liked the thin consistency & how quickly it absorbed into my skin. The fragrance is light & pleasant. The ingredients include meadowfoam, baobab, and squalane. Now if you’ve been following my page for a bit, you know how much I love squalane. It helps your skin retain as much moisture as possible. I would recommend using this after a deeper exfoliation, as it is a reparative oil as much as hydrating one. I love that the pump has a cap. We all know how messy oils can be & this helps keep the nozzle clean. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tinted Petala: This is a tinted lip balm, available in 2 shades. You know a brand is considerate when they send you the shade most likely to flatter not only your skin tone, but the color of your lips. My lips are a deep mauve to brown shade & the shade Fling looks amazing! I love tinted lip balms for the summer & this just looks like my lips, but better. It has a slightly minty scent & I found it to be very moisturizing. The lip balm I swear by is Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm in Rose & I’ve finally found something comparable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Melted Balm: This is a multipurpose balm that can be used on rough spots, dry patches, cuticles, & lips. I used this on my elbows & knees and I love it. My mom used it on her chapped heels & the healing properties of the calendula and red raspberry seed oil come through. The tub it comes in is very high quality. The only place I see room for improvement is the size. I had a difficult time trying to scoop out a pea-sized amount to spread it generously over my skin. I wish the tub was larger. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I would definitely recommend the tinted lip balm & hope the melted balm will soon be sold in a larger size.
