Brand Focus: Lyck Natural Bodycare

I'm back! It has been a busy, busy few weeks and I finally have some time to reconnect with you all and review a lovely Canadian brand. Lyck Natural Bodycare is from the beautiful British Columbia and is formulated with 6 key things in mind, which is basically their philosophy.
All about you
You are the reason we are here. We believe you deserve to feel incredible in your own skin... We offer you body care as beautiful and unique as you are.

Lyck engages your senses
It is not enough for Lyck products to be effective at the clinical level. We take an artisan approach to all our product formulations. We believe that our creative use of raw ingredients, unique, juicy scents and incredible textures will indulge your senses, spark memories and engage your core emotions every time you experience a Lyck product.

Lyck believes in being genuine
We use only the highest quality ingredients to create decadent skin care for you. All the elements used are of the highest grade available or certified organic and selected from reputable providers around the globe. Naturally refined, fairly traded Shea butter, raw organic sugar, pure essential and organic vitamin rich vegetable oils are only a few of the luxurious ingredients we use to create Lyck body care creations.

We feel passionate about creating a long term sustainable business. We use only biodegradable ingredients, 100% recyclable packaging and shipping supplies. We actively support local and organic agriculture; we are always looking for ways to reduce our impact on our beautiful planet.

Lets get real
No harsh synthetic chemicals are used! To keep the integrity of all ingredients, we select real and raw materials and use production practices that dont harm the delicate nature of these ingredients. In doing so, you reap the greatest benefit each ingredient offers.

Kick out the cruelty
Lyck Body care takes a zero tolerance approach to animal cruelty.

I was sent their *Fantastic Face Serum, *Glossy Box, *Lipbutter, and *Bodybutter. All ingredients will be listed at the very bottle of this page.

Vanilla Coconut Creme Bodybutter Description: Experience a decadent, yet light, whipped body butter. Made with organic Shea and cocoa butter with skin nourishing botanical oils, these lush butters will not only hydrate your dry spots, but keep your skin supple and sweet. Lathers on rich and quickly absorbs into the skin, giving a powdery soft touch, not greasy like some butters. Lyck Body Butters aren't whipped full of air like some of our competitors products and ours come in generous 118ml / 4oz sizes ... our butters are the real deal! Try them once and we are sure they will be one of your favourites!! Warm and sweet Vanilla melds beautifully with creamy tropical coconut for this mouthwatering treat. Retails for $25 CDN for 118 ml.

This whipped goodness holds true to its description; nourishing yet leaves a powdery soft finish. I never, ever feel greasy but always feel super moisturized. On top of leaving my skin feeling super soft, it also smells amazing! Vanilla and coconut are two of my all time favourite scents, however, they're also the two scents that can sometimes mix weirdly with my body chemistry. Sadly, while the intoxicating scent transports me to tropical paradise in the tub, it smells like plastic coconut on my body. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then you've probably never experienced it and will get on great with this scent (if it tickles your fancy).

Also available in Sweet Cheeks Cherry, Pink Lemonade, Oh My Mandarin, Exotic Kiss, Eve's Garden, and Birthday Suit (unscented).

Crushed Berries Lipbutter Description: Everybody loves lip butter. Lavish your lips with these vitamin rich, creamy butters. All natural and organic. No junk! Retails for $12.99 CDN.

Oh-em-gee, these lip butters are incredible! I tend to stay away from beeswax, mainly because I find it leaves my lips more dry than anything, but I can't get enough! I have this pot in my bathroom and apply it every single night after getting ready for bed. When I wake up, my lips are incredibly soft. This lip butter also tastes absolutely divine, just like berries. Love, love, love.

Also available in Black Licorice Raspberry, Candied Orange, Lemon Lips, and Vanilla Mint.

Glossy Box Description: Glossy Box is an innovative after care product using completely natural ingredients to combat inflammation, redness and ingrown hair associated with waxing and shaving. This rich cream dries to a powder like finish to not only protect you from unwanted irritation, but to also provide an anti-chaffing barrier to keep you dry and fresh. The scent is reminiscent of fresh cucumber and Tahitian gardenia. Retails for $29.99 CDN.

As an aesthetician who waxes ladies 'down there' on a daily basis, I was intrigued by this product. As a lady who gets waxed 'down there', I can't say it did much for me or I just didn't notice. Perhaps this would be ideal for someone who gets super irritated or suffers from ingrowns. The scent was also a little much for me.

I can't actually find this Fantastic Face Serum on their website, sorry. Despite coming in a cheap, plastic pump bottle, the pump works really well and has never leaked. Still, I'd love to see this oil in an amber glass bottle. It's chock full of amazingly nourishing and anti-aging ingredients, such as shea oil, evening primrose oil, pomegrante oil, and borage seed oil. When it was cooler, I'd use a pump in the morning before applying my makeup and my skin was perfectly primed. Now that it's hot as hell here, this is a bit too heavy for my skin. If you have dry and/or mature skin, or live in a cold or dry climate, this might be ideal for you. It smells faintly of roses and the scent doesn't linger.

I've been pleasantly surprised with Lyck and think it's another fantastic Canadian brand to add to your wish list.

Products can be purchased through Lyck (they ship internationally) and in store at Anise Apothecary.

  1. Totally want the Vanilla Coconut Creme Body Butter. Sounds YUMMY. The Glossy Box sounds like it might be really good for my skin actually. I don't wax... but I shave 'down there' and am horribly prone to rashing afterwards. I wonder if this would prevent the rashing. ^__^ Totally want to try this company out sometime, especially since they are from my province. :D Rather expensive shipping though... I blame Canada Post (and the large size of our country).

    1. I think Glossy Box would help reduce and prevent large rashing from happening, especially with the warm weather coming on...aka sweating, which leads to further rashing.

  2. Lyck sound really nice, I love the sound of a sans greasy finish after the body butter - must be the starch that helps with that.

    Mayah x

    1. The starch makes a huge difference. It's kind of weird rubbing it on at first, because you expect it to be greasy, then it surprises you with that velvety soft powder finish

  3. Sounds lovely! I get ingrown hairs, they're such a pain, might have to try that Glossy Box!

    1. exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate girl! Using a gentle scrub will help with the ingrowns, promise! However, you may be able to win a glossy box soon ;)

  4. Love the range of scents, reading this made me drolling over my keyboard XD Don't know why Glossy box should protect from irritation... Nothing better that pure coconut oil with a couple of drope of lavender essential oil to fight that =)

    1. haha drool away! I think the idea of glossy box is to calm and always help keep that area a dry and chafe free. May have to try the coconut oil and lavender though :P xo

  5. I don't think I've heard of Lyck before, but looks like a nice line! Will have to check them out now :)

    1. Might be a little overpowering for you, miss scent sensitive :P xo


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
