I asked them to send me whatever sample they had available, and Alli picked “Paris,” which was PERFECT! Kristen blends her scents to mimic the smells of different countries she has visited, so that the smell of each brings back pleasant memories. Paris is one place I have always wanted to visit, so this scent was perfect for me! It is a blend of lavender and vanilla and smells amazing. I also appreciated the hand-written note that accompanied my sample.
Each ingredient was specifically chosen for its’ unique properties and benefits. Every week I will highlight one of these ingredients that make Criss Naturals products so special.
When I set out almost two years ago to create my own all natural body products, my goal was to create a thick, moisturizing cream to soothe my eczema and extremely dry and sensitive skin, yet gentle enough to not cause breakouts. The even tougher part was that this lotion also had to absorb fairly quickly and not leave a very oily residue. All natural products are of course made with a mix of oils, which by nature are greasy. So this was the part missing for me from other all natural body products, and is what makes Criss Naturals special- the unique combination of shea butter, coupled with a blend of oils, essential oils, and extract to create the thickest, richest, most gentle and fastest absorbing all natural body butter I have found to date.
Over the following weeks I’ll highlight each ingredient of Criss Naturals body butters and why each was specifically chosen to be part of these unique blends.
