Review: Natural Skincare Products! Hops Hands Infused Hand Salve & Hops Lips Infused Lip Balm by Spindrift Soap Co

Hello Everyone!!
Today is going to be a review on some all natural skincare products that I was sent from Jointle!
In case you're not familiar with Jointle, they are a platform that supports small local makers and their website is full of American made goodies! They do not sell any mass produced items, so if your into supporting small businesses, I highly recommend this site!

I was sent two products by Spindrift Soap Co: Hops Hands Hops Infused Hand Salve with lemongrass and ylang ylang & Hops Lips Infused Lip Balm with peppermint and rosemary!

The first quality I noticed about these products is that they contained essential oils.
I love essential oils, I use them daily, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that these products contained so many of the oils that I use on a daily basis!
Also, I was thoroughly impressed by how small the ingredients list was for each product, and the fact that I knew every ingredient on each of the list was very comforting. All of the ingredients will be listed with the products in  full the review below! 
Also, links to the products I'm reviewing and the website will be linked at the end.

Now, time for the full review!!

Hops Hands Hops Infused Hand Salve with Lemongrass and Ylang Ylang

Ingredients: Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Apricot Oil, Beeswax, Vitamin E, Citra Hops, Lemongrass Esential Oil, Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

The ingredients, in my opinion, are amazing! The only ingredient I wasn't familiar with was the Citra Hops and after some googling, a lot of websites claim that it has healing and anti-inflammatory properties, which fit right in with the rest of the ingredients.
 When i first opened it, it smelled just like lemongrass essential oil! I personally love the scent of lemongrass, I use it in my diffuser regularly. 
The consistency when you first open it is very firm, almost hard.
I just dig a small dab out (a little goes a long way) and then rub it between my hands till it turns into a more liquid consistency. 
This product is very rich and hydrating and I find that it applies best when I have just gotten out of the shower. 
I prefer to apply this at night, because it is so rich, as an overnight treatment for my skin. 
Although it says its a hand salve, I apply it to my knees and elbows; Basically any area that I feel needs hydration.  I've even applied some to my lips.

Overall, this is a really nice product. I love the ingredients. This is a great product for super dry skin. 

Hops Lips Infused Lip Balm with Peppermint and Rosemary

Ingredients: Organic Bees Wax, Organic Coconut Oil, Citra Hops, Vitamin E, Peppermint Essential Oil, Rosemary Essential Oil

Once again, I love how simple and skin loving the ingredients list is. This lip balm does everything a  lip balm should. I love the scent and slight tingly effect that the peppermint oil give. 
This lip balm is very similar to coconut oil in consistency. I would not recommend taking this lip balm somewhere extremely hot, because it does seem to melt a tad bit easily.
 If your going to work or school though, it will be fine.
Because it gets slightly liquidy when it gets warm, it leaves a very pretty glossy wet look on the lips.
I have applied this numerous times by itself and over other colors and I love the sheen it gives. 

Overall, I really love this lip balm. It is simple, natural, and effective.

I really enjoy finding ways to incorporate natural products into my beauty routine, because honestly, I feel like natural products are better for you! They are just harder to come by. 

Thank you, Jointle & Spindrift Soap Co for the amazing products!


I hope someone found this helpful,
