If there is one thing I have learned throughout the years, it’s that you have to work for the things you want and sometimes that can mean doing things you don’t enjoy. Somehow though, as much as I have desired velvety smooth skin, I can never seem to get myself to deal with greasy lotions any more than absolutely necessary ( as in winter, for example, when I can’t deny it any longer). There’s something about the way most lotions feel on me that I can never seem to get past, like I’ve covered my skin in something completely foreign that isn’t meshing with my body. Luckily, I have found the lotion I have always dreamed of in Saint Francis Organics Certified Organic Body Lotion.
The body lotion has a wonderful texture, created using a special emulsifier, that’s thinner than most lotions, but works wonderfully. My skin absolutely drinks it up and feels completely natural and soft after I put it on and stays that way, so I do not have to constantly reapply. The best combination is the Body Lotion after a shower using the Body Wash, or on my hands after using their Hand Soap. Plus, the scents are complete perfection in Citrus Lime, Lavender Blend, Grapefruit, and Vanilla Peppermint (though, some products are also available unscented if you prefer). The scents are light, never overly sweet or overpowering, but just enough for lasting freshness.
Though, when it comes to their products, the people at Saint Francis Organics don’t mess around. Every product is, minimum, 95% organic and is also USDA certified organic. For more info, you can read about it here. Saint Francis Organics, started in 2008, is based in Colorado and is dedicated to working on providing the cleanest body-care line in the industry. In the true essence of the company’s namesake, St. Francis of Assissi, they company also supports causes that promote environmental safety and cleanliness.
Whether you are going for classic, glam, edgy, or natural, everyone needs the basics like soap and body lotion. Saint Francis Organics provides a foundation that feels totally natural and lets you build up the rest. The company is also working on releasing a shampoo and conditioner soon and expanding their line of cleaning products (they offer a Fruit and Veggie Cleaner currently). If these are anything like their other products, I (with my newly smooth skin) am sure to be impressed.
