Tasha Hussey Body - #Review and #Giveaway

I recently had the good fortune to try out some great body care products by Tasha Hussey Body.

Eucalyptus Mint Loofah Soap

One of the things that I enjoy about doing reviews is getting to know the people behind the products.

Tasha Hussey, who studied Fashion Design, had a clothing line for 12 years. Each item was made from natural or organic fibers. Currently, she has a line of Vintage re-purposed jewelry. Old focal pieces, some of which have been sitting in warehouses for over 40 years, are mixed with new findings.

Two of Tasha's children suffer from eczema. So she changed their diet, switching to wild caught fish, and organic vegetables and fruits. At one point, she realized that it didn't make sense to eat so well while, at the same time, adding chemicals back into her body via body care products. And, those products were negatively affecting her children's skin.

Tasha decided to make her own body care products ... products made from natural, safe ingredients ... and Tasha Hussey Body was born.

Tasha Hussey Eucalyptus Mint Body Butter

Tasha Hussey Body - Review and Giveaway
This body butter is wonderful! It comes in a Tin. The ingredients are clearly listed and include things like avocado, mango, and essential oils. The scent is so nice ... a delightful mix of eucalyptus and peppermint, which is strong enough to linger on your skin but not too heavy to be overwhelming.

The white butter inside is semi-solid, along the lines of a soft wax. A little goes a long ways. I love the feel of it and the way it is immediately absorbed into my skin. I tried it on my face, hands, arms, and even the heels of my feet. It did a very nice job of moisturizing and softening my skin.

Tasha Hussey Eucalyptus Mint Loofah Soap

Tasha Hussey Body - Review and Giveaway
What a clever invention! Adding a slice of organically-grown loofah to the bar itself means that one can wash and exfoliate at the same time ... no wash cloth or scrubbing brush necessary.

This beautiful, vegetable glycerine soap comes in an Eco-friendly wrap. I was concerned about one ingredient, Palm Oil, so I asked Tasha about it. She replied that she sources only certified sustainable palm oil and that she buys all of her products from reputable companies.

The scent is similar to the body butter ... noticeable but not heavy. The loofah gently scrubs while the soap cleans. There was no residue left on my skin (don't you hate it when it feels like you can't get the soap off?).

After two weeks of use, neither product irritated my sensitive skin. I happily recommend both products and Tasha Hussey Body.
