As a fashion, beauty and makeup lover, I’d still consider myself mostly low maintenance when it comes to buying products. My skin care routines are usually organic with so little of things not organic.
A month ago I found myself in Abuja and I visited an organic store called Mint Organic Care; very feel good, friendly and homely environment that felt totally welcoming. As I opened the doors to the shop I could already feel the peace, calm and therapeutic aroma from their products. I had a chat with the CEO and found so much variety in their products.
Although the products where organic and Made in Nigeria, one wouldn’t have expected to see so many innovative products made in Nigeria and you know of course I had to buy some products. I got myself some soaps, lip balm, bath bomb, scented candle and a body and face scrub.
Now that you know what I got, lets go straight into the main purpose of the post which is my four favorite products from Mint organic care.
Coffee Bar Soap
Ingredients include Coffee and Cocoa Butter, Hazelnut, Olive, Palm and Coconut oils, Tussah silk, Vanilla Bean etc..
This soap lathers well with a sweet smell of coffee or cocoa, almost making one want to eat that bar of soap. Be careful there , don’t go eating the soap .The first day I used this, I loved it, It feels silky and gentle on the skin, leaving the skin clean and smooth thanks to the oils in this soap Its not harsh on the skin and it doesn’t dry you out.
2. Georgian Peach Lip Balm
I’am a lipgloss and lipstick girl but my oh my, this lip balm is doing me some good. I usually get reactions from some lipsticks but using this lipgloss as a base has helped in wearing those lipsticks. This lip balm has castor oil, olive oil and soybean oil; these oils help in healing cracked lips, and prevent further chapping, one rub is enough for a long time due to these healing oils. It smells like candy, once more do not eat it. One of my beauty secrets is rubbing this at night before I sleep; this helps condition your lips, living it soft and preventing it from chapping up.
3. Vanilla bean and Peppermint Natural Soy Candle
*Drum rolls… Well well as a candle and incense lover, this candle is definitely a must buy, with a wooden wick this candle burns for 72 hours with a soothing sound of crackling fire. The fragrance is a must love and takes over the whole area. This gives a therapeutic feeling and very relaxing, mind you wooden wicks burn much cleaner.
4. Coconut Lime Face and Body Scrub
Although I do not use this on my Face, I use it all over my body especially my legs after shaving. This keeps my legs super smooth and there is something very refreshing about the sugar grains against your skin. Apart from exfoliating, thanks to the Moroccan oil as its base this moisturizes and soothes the skin living it fresh and smooth.
