Eeps, anybody else as crazy-obsessed with Etsy as I am? I can literally spend hours on that site… hours that should be spent cleaning the house, chasing kidlets (whoops), blogging (ahem), making FOOD – lol, it’s bad, yo. 😉 #kidding #notkidding Anyhoo, I HAVE to share one of my recent Etsy gems with y’all!
OK, ladies and germs, meet Oil of Angels! Founder/skincare wizard/HBIC Jill (and total sweetheart BTW) is a licensed esthetician who has a passion for creating super pure, all-natural, highly effective, vegan cosmetics (some of which contain mega sparklies, stay tuned). Oh, and all of the oils she uses are 100% certified organic and cold-pressed, which I LOVE.
Whipped Body Butter, $29 – When I first opened this container, it had a beautiful flowery swirl, which I unfortunately smooshed, but you can still get the gist of it from the pic below. I’m a sucker for pretty presentations, so I already knew I was gonna like this product. This all-natural whipped butter (featuring moisture-rich shea and cocoa butter) is so light and fluffy, and it smells like frickin’ CHOCOLATE! It applies effortlessly and makes my skin feel A-M-A-Z-E (especially after a hot bath).
Shimmering Body Oil, $25 – Fellow glitter fiends, get ready to swoon! From Oil of Angels’ website: Be prepared to bask in the sublime glow of your own radiant aura with this unique illuminating body oil! This lightweight oil contains beautiful golden micas (swimming in coconut and sunflower oils), which give you a nice, subtle, golden glow – perfect for summer! And when I say subtle, it really is super subtle, so don’t worry about your body looking like this afterward. Be sure to mix well before using. 😉
Facial Cleaner, $26 – My hubby and I are all about this cleaner (isn’t it nice that I share my VBR swag with my mister?). Anyhoo, it’s soothing, degunking, gentle, and it totally smells delish and citrus-y. Rockstar ingredients include aloe, green tea, lemongrass and tea tree essential oils, all stuff the skin loves! This cleanser has a gel-like consistency and a little bit goes a long way. Best for normal/combo skin.
Exquisite Antioxidant Serum (facial oil), $39 – Ooh, y’all know how I feel about beauty oils…. and this bad boy has pretty much all of my faves: argan, sea buckthorn, borage, evening primrose, rosehip, and pomegranate seed. Y’all, these are fancy, $pency, luxury, wrinkle-fightin’, age-defyin’ oils (with zero filler carrier oils). Lately I’ve been going back and forth between argan, sea bucktthorn, and rosehip oil, but now I get to enjoy them all at the same time – it’s like a beauty oil love fest!
Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Vitamin B5 and Botanicals, $36 – From their website: This lightweight, water-based serum helps to keep the skin hydrated by slowing down the rate of water evaporation, while simultaneously infusing the skin with moisture. Eee, it’s all science-y, I love it! So, yeah, it does all that, and it really is lightweight, easily absorbed, and non-greasy. It does have a bit of a tightening effect which I like because that’s how you know magic is taking place. 😉
Overall impression: I’m blown away by these high quality, handmade goodies! They’re made with the finest, most effective ingredients, and I’m a big fan of the glass packaging. Oil of Angels is a 100% vegan line so no need to triple check ingredient labels (which is a relief for obsessive label readers like myself). Anyhoo, I highly recommend these beauty products. Excited to share more goodies from O of A with you guys down the line. Stay tuned. xx
