Christy is the owner and creator of Be The Duck a natural vegan bath and body products small business that was founded in 2008. Christy spent a great deal of time, effort, and thought in developing her products, her goal was to create extra rich recipes that were designed to be highly moisturizing. All of her products contain botanical ingredients that soothe and soften the skin all while being earth friendly and all natural. Many of the herbs used in her products were grown in Christy’s organic garden, how cool is that?
That is something I can definitely appreciate in a company and it’s products, I was thrilled when I was sent 2 products to try out for the purpose of this review. I received Luscious Cherry Almond a Natural Handmade Vegan Shea Butter Body Lotion and a Luscious Cherry Almond Handmade Natural Vegan Soap Bar.
I love the packaging the bag was gorgeous and everything was wrapped so nicely and properly I had no spills or damaged products.
Luscious Cherry Almond Lotion
Size: Travel Size 2oz
Texture: nice and creamy, goes on thick and then melts into your skin
Ingredients: Rose Water, Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Oil, Sunflower Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Evening Primrose Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Emulsifying Wax, Stearic Acid,Essential Oils and/or Fragrance Oil, Leucidal Liquid (natural preservative derived from radishes)
My Thoughts: I love this lotion, my skin was left feeling very soft and moisturized all day long, not too mentioned smelling delicious! The smell is wonderful I love it! It is very fresh, clean and crisp smelling without being overpowering.
Luscious Cherry Almond Handmade Vegan Soap
Texture: Like that of a regular soap bar except you can see and feel the ground almonds throughout
Size: I believe I received a travel size but her normal soap are cut 1 inch thick and weigh anywhere from 4-5oz
Color: a creamy tan
Ingredients: Distilled Water, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Castor Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Essential and or Fragrance Oils and Ground Almonds
My Thoughts: The soap paired with the lotion is a like a perfect marriage 🙂 The soap is also extremely moisturizing, I didn’t have the dry feeling I usually get after I towel dry right after a shower, usually I am running to my lotion first thing but not this time the soap left my skin very smooth and soft which is great! It did however take awhile for me to work up a good lather but that’s okay because once I got that mastered it was smooth sailing from there!
I would definitely purchase not only these same products from Be The Duck but also any of her other scents she has as well. Her prices are very affordable, I love that her products are natural, earth friendly and all vegan and they work so well on my skin 🙂
