Product Review: One Bath & Body-Hand & Body Lotion & Shea Body Butter

One Bath & Body offers many body care products with a philosophy that natural beauty products offered in recyclable eco-friendly packaging "rejuvenate the planet and save the spirit". They believe that going green does not require a compromise in quality or luxury, and they are committed reducing packaging waste in our environment. Their wide product range includes natural soaps, solid shampoos, lotion massage bars, bath salts and fizzers, lip balms, after-shower skin conditioner bars, a variety of bath & shower sponges, and the products I'll be reviewing today. Their pricing is extremely reasonable and their ingredients are a minimum of 95% natural.

One Bath & Body products can be purchased on line and in store at Target, and also at Walgreens on line. It looks like they have an on line store coming soon to their web site as well. You can join them on Facebook and Twitter for additional news and updates.

One Cloud 9 Hand & Body Lotion: This product comes in an 8 oz. recyclable tin tube and is also available in three additional scents, including one that sounds heavenly to me, Vanilla Almond Custard. Cloud 9 has a light clean fragrance that has a subtle lavender fragrance to me. This is a fairly rich and thick formula that seems to melt right into my skin. It absorbs quickly and isn't sticky or greasy. The scent is noticeable, but not overbearing at all. With ingredients like Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Beeswax and Glycerin to name a few, my hands are left feeling soft, nourished and protected. I've been using this product on my hands in the morning and at night for about a month now, and find it to be quite effective. A little product goes a long way and my tube is still about 80% full. This product retails for about $9.00.

One Citrus Peel Shea Body Butter: The Shea Body Butter is packaged in a 7 oz. tin canister and also is available in three additional scents. The Citrus Peel scent is fairly strong during the application, but dries down nicely. This is probably the thickest body butter I've ever used, but like the Hand & Body Lotion, it seems to melt into my skin on contact. The Body Butter takes a little longer to absorb than the Hand & Body Lotion, but not enough to be bothersome. I've been using this product as my daily body moisturizer, as well as applying a little extra on dryer areas (elbows, knees) at night with very good results. My skin still feels soft and looks moisturized 14-16 hours after I've applied it. The main ingredients include Mango Fruit Extract, Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, and Glycerin. This product retails for about $10.00.

  1. I've tried the Hair Biscuit shampoo and Oh My Gosh massage bar and I like them both quite a bit. The body butter sounds nice, especially for winter.

  2. thecandiedmango~the Hair Biscuit shampoo gets rave reviews and if I see it, I'm going to give it a try. I definitely agree that this body butter would be perfect for a winter lotion, it's so thick!
