Brand Focus: nyl

Earlier this year, I reviewed nyl's delicious and lovely Gentle Sugar Body Polish. Carol, Founder, contacted me shortly after and asked if there was anything else from the range that I'd like to try. How could I resist? Based on Monique's recommendation, from Anise Apothecary, I decided to try out the *Whipped Hand & Body Lotion and *Body Balm. What I love about this brand is the simplicity of their ingredients, their name really says it all.

Description: A rich creamy all-over moisturizer. Meadowfoam seed oil is the star of this lotion, chosen for its amazing moisturizing and rejuvenating capabilities. When applied to the skin, it forms a moisture barrier and will assist in preventing moisture loss. It's a non-comedogenic oil which means it won't clog your pores, has a non-greasy feel and your skin will drink it up. Retails for $34 USD for 4 fl oz or $6 USD for 1 fl oz.

This whipped goodness is incredible! It is so creamy, fluffy, smooth, and moisturizing without ever feeling greasy. I've been reaching for this quite often because not only does it apply and work beautifully after a shower, it also works whenever. Okay, that sounded weird. Obviously it works whenever but, oils and balms tend to apply and work even better when your skin is slightly damp. Know what I mean? This just works..whenever! Must be the fact that it contains water and isn't solely oil based. It hasn't irritated or broken my skin out. In fact, it's actually soothing after any kind of hair removal. While the glass jar is really nice and eco friendly, it's also heavy (aka not travel friendly). The scent is light and fresh, I can't imagine even those sensitive to scents would be bothered by it. This is another winning product in my books!
Look at how fluffy it is!!

Description: A silky balm created to soothe cracked dry hands in the winter & soften heels for sandal season. Meadowfoam seed oil is blended with healing kokum butter, tamanu oil and calendula extract to soothe and soften problem areas. Retails for $30 USD for 2 fl oz.

This balm...this balm, this balm, this balm. It was a winner before I even tried it solely on the fact that it contains both tamanu and calendula (sensitive skin dream team). The scent is tamanu but not really. You guys know me and describing scents, I'll give up now. It feels so lovely and soothing on my cuticles, eczema, and dry patches on my body and face. Whenever I apply this at night, I wake up with super soft skin regardless of where I've applied it. The jar is actually really small, so regardless of whether it's plastic or glass, it's perfect for tossing in your purse or carry on.

Well nyl, you can do no wrong! I am, yet again, extremely impressed with the products that I've tried. In fact, I didn't expect to like the body lotion. Why? Because it was still brutally cold out when I received it and assumed that it wouldn't actually hydrate my skin dry skin. It proved me wrong!
