Malie Organics Body Wash _7541852

I'm back with a product review.  Malie Organics is a skin care line we've been carrying for a few years.   I can honestly say that I've been using the body wash exclusively for over six months and am noticing that it is the real deal.  I LOVE moisturized skin and will stop at nothing to keep it soft, supple and fresh.  The wash is moisturizing and freshly scented.  Koke'e's scent is from the Hawaiian plant the Maile vine. It's a little thin but dissolves and spreads quite easily.  I tend to be an over user but a little less is always better...

Apart from making me fresh, clean and moist, any time you purchase a Malie Organics product that uses the Maile vine, 1% of the proceeds goes back to the Koke'e Resource Conservation Program.  So now you're doing a little more!

With the onslaught of information about the (watch the video if you're okay with images of death) catastrophe in Bangladesh, I have really begun to try to learn where my hard-earned money goes.  Buying a $25 lotion over a department store $10 lotion seems a little extravagant, but let me say that the lotion I buy gives back.  The $10 drug store lotion that's massed produced probably does not give back.  This was meant to be a product review and now has turned into a deeper post.

When you spend your money, what does it do after it leaves your hands?  What support does your money provide?  Think about this every time you swipe your debit or visa card.  Researching how your favorite goods and products are produced may seem foreign to some of you and commonplace for others.  If you want to learn more, just ask.  Once you know what your money does after it leaves you, you might think twice about how you spend it.

That's the fresh perspective...

Okay guys this scrub is bananas!!! Yup, I used three exclamation marks...  My overwhelming excitement is quite obvious.  I used this polish yesterday and my skin...!  MY SKIN!!!! (I used four...)  My skin felt amazing and I was instantly sold.  This product is very natural and 1% of the proceeds of this particular scent (koke'e) goes back into planting more of this plant.  This scrub is made from the maile vine that is indigenous to Hawaii and you can actually see the plant in the scrub.  It makes your skin feel so good and if you follow it with the body cream it is like desert for your skin!

Being black (sorry that wasn't politically correct)...I am very particular with the type of lotions I use on my skin.  I love the extra moisture and the shine I get from heavy lotions, and this product really felt conditioning even though it was light.  And the smell?!!  Oooh-wee!!  As you can see, I LOVE this polish!  If you've used it and hated it please let me know, I'm always interested in opinions about the things I love.  It's nice to get a different perspective on things, I believe, are gold.

I recommend to use it once a week with the lotion to give your skin that soft and healthy glow.  It is a full on scrub so it will exfoliate your skin and make it feel soft... Come check out the Boutique to see the full line that also includes soaps, candles and perfume.  That's the fresh respective... I love this product!
