Kimberly Loc X Rachel’s Plan Bee ‘Limited Edition’ Body Oil and Body Polish

Green Beauty Blogger Kimberly Loc of kimberlyloc and Rachel’s Plan Bee unite in an effort to rid us all of out dry skin woes, while bathing us in an aromatic bouquet of jasmine. The pair first teamed up to create a ‘Limited Edition’ Body Oil that soon became a best-seller. As this very special oil soon sold out, the demand for its return became real. It’s now back and available alongside a specially formulated Body Polish. This dynamic duo has been a mere saviour to my dry winter skin.

Captain Blankenship – Rosemary & Lemongrass Body Scrub & Sunshine Body Cream

Captain Blankenship tugs at my heart strings with their brilliantly executed line of beauty products. Each product is hand-crafted from all organic, wildcrafted or natural ingredients, with an emphasis placed on fragrance. I am giddy to share my love for this brand today.

The Rosemary & Lemongrass Sugar Scrub* is an all-in-one scrub for body, face, and lips. In this scrub, a combination of all organic ingredients, including cane sugar, brown rice flour, and apricot kernel meal combine with organic almond oil to create the perfect texture, that is neither too harsh, nor too gentle, but just right. A generous amount of oil keeps the skin well moisturized long after use. Organic essential oils of rosemary, lemongrass, and blood orange blend to create a vibrant, uplifting scent that clings to the skin. After use, skin is left soft, supple and glowing. It is a marvelous lip exfoliator, and if I may say so, it’s quite delicious as well. As someone who samples a lot of products, I can easily claim that this is ‘hands down’ the best scrub I’ve come across.

Captain Blankenship nails it again with their Sunshine Body Cream*. In this delectably creamy treat, organic virgin coconut oil, organic cocoa butter, organic rosehip seed oil, organic jojoba oil, vitamin e, rosemary antioxidant and beeswax combine to create a ‘melt on your skin‘ situation. It applies with ease, and distributes intense hydration evenly across the skin. My skin loves it as it drinks it all up. It has a delightfully subtle fragrance of rich dark chocolate and coconut. The Sunshine Body Cream is perfect for cold winter months as it nourishes deeply. I also love it on the lips.
