Wanted to sneak this post in today, so you can take advantage of the Black Friday sales going on for it tomorrow!!
A few weeks ago I shared a post with you about a product by the brand Teadora. I received that product about a week after that post and decided to use it for 10 days straight before writing up a review. Before I get into that, though, let me tell you a bit about the company.
Teadora products are made from all-natural raw organic ingredients from the Amazon, and they are harvested in a sustainable way. Environmentally friendly = always an amazing thing! I love respect for the Earth! In the company's words, "By purchasing our products, you are supporting sustainable agriculture in Brazil to help stop rainforest deforestation. You are also funding a philanthropy exchange between the U.S. and Brazil that promotes youth education, leadership development, and health." I gotta say, I love companies that strive to do something good with the revenue from their product.
So now that we've established what this company is all about, let's talk about the product I reviewed! I received the All-Natural Body Polish in the Rainforest at Dusk scent.
I used the body polish every night before I went to bed in place of cuticle oil. Here is my what my hand looked like before I started using the body polish:
You can see that my hands and cuticles are quite out of shape (I got lazy the weeks prior and didn't bother using cuticle oil and moisturizing lotion at night). Here's a picture of what my skin looked like after using the product for 5 days:
There is a noticeable improvement in the cuticles especially! And here is what my skin looks like 10 days after using this product:
Still an improvement, though not as much of a difference between day 5 and day 10.
The Ups: This body polish felt like a mud mask scrub when I used it - and I loved it! It felt sooooooo good, especially if I had just spent the day swatching an washing my hands constantly. I also really loved the musky smell. It reminded me of a yoga studio I used to go to in Washington when we lived there - very earthy and soothing :) I love how smooth my skin felt, too, right after washing it off.
The Downs: While it did make an improvement in getting rid of most of my dry skin, especially around the cuticles, it did not take care of all of it. However, I wouldn't really blame the product for that. I have always had dry skin, even when I lotion frequently, I still get dry skin. It's just the way it goes for me. The fact that more than half my dry skin went away after using this product tells me it is a great product. I cannot say for certain it would completely rid all dry skin for everyone, but I can say it would do a darn fine job getting rid of most of it, and making your hands a bit softer in the process :)
Overall: I think this is an awesome product, not just for it's application, but because of the company that makes it. I really love all-natural products, I try to use them whenever I can. Being environmentally conscious is a great feature for any company, especially beauty companies. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a healthy scrub/body polish!
