As a beauty blogger I love seeking out new companies, products and people in the field of natural beauty. I came across a fellow blogger, Chanell Angeli, and her beauty and travel website, and instantly fell in love. It's a great looking website, with interesting blog posts and informative information about natural skin care and the ingredients. Chanell recently debuted her line of natural skin care products after so many of her readers asked her how she kept her skin looking so fantastic. She was happy to oblige and now you can check out her products as well.
Melanin Mermaid, her own line of natural skin and hair beauty products, contain natural, healthy ingredients that help refine and improve skin. It's the Glow Baby Bath Salt Scrub. I am a fan of salt scrubs and soaks because I like the way my skin feels after I do a treatment. Melanin Mermaid's scrub contains coconut oil, one of my favorite hydrating oils, and a blend of sea salt and Epsom salt. Coconut oil is the key ingredient, due to it's moisturizing, anti-aging and antibacterial properties. They add a little fun to the mix by blending in a bit of gold flecks, so that afterwards your skin is left slightly shimmery and very moisturized.
Another new product I spotted at Melanin Mermaid is one that is formulated for men. The super rich and creamy "Melanin Man" lotion is packed with good stuff. The coconut oil is back again in this product, but it's paired with ingredients like Shea butter, vitamin E, almond oil and aloe vera (which gives the lotion it's light, fresh scent). It's gentle so it's safe on freshly shaved skin, and will help keep his face moisturized all day.
I personally use body butters to keep my own skin smooth. Chanell has one for sale in her shop that I am eager to try. It has a nice blend of coconut and almond oils, Shea butter, and it's scented with a nice lavender oil. I use butters because I do get a lot of sun exposure which, as I age, tends to leave my skin pretty dry. The thick and rich body butters seem to absorb well and last longer than ordinary lotions. Melanin Mermaid's Coco Calm Body Butter is next on my list to try, and I'm sure I'm going to be happy with the smoothing results it will bring.
I also enjoyed the blog posts from Chanell that give out good information on ingredients, how to use certain products, including some very nice photos, so while you visit the site be sure to check out what's new on her blog. The website is easy to navigate, and ordering from Melanin Mermaid is a breeze. I'm looking forward to seeing what else Chanell creates for her line, which had it's debut just this month.
My recommendation? Give the Coco Calm Body Butter a try. With so many benefits packed into one all natural skin care product, you can't go wrong with this one!
