Are you looking for nourishing oils and butters with a little Caribbean flavor? I bring you Calypso Glow! I was first introduced to Calypso Glow from attending the Indie Beauty Expo. I met with the Founder & Owner Patricia Bentham who is just as lovely as her British accent! For those that don’t know I’m a little crazy for English accents 🙂
Patricia’s family is from St. Lucia so her inspiration for creating these yummy bar soaps, scrubs, and oils come from her Caribbean roots. The core ingredients are coconut oil and coconut milk. I think this is one of the reasons this green beauty brand pairs well with my skin and hair. I have always loved coconut oil. You can read more about my many uses for coconut oil here.
I was able to try a few products from her line. Here are the ones I’m raving about today.
Mango & Papaya Enriching Bar Soap
Last week on social media I talked about how much I enjoy using bar soaps now instead of liquid. My skin on my body tends to be more on the dry side and I find that I need extra moisture especially now that fall is upon us. Since I’ve made the switch to bar soap my skin has been feeling so much more hydrated. Not only does this smell amazing but it’s perfect for dry skin because it cleans while imparting moisture. The mango & papaya also help to gently exfoliate, remove dark scars, even skin tone, and aids in a brighter complexion.
Ingredients: Caribbean saponified coconut & olive oil, naturally retained glycerin, mango & papaya extracts, organic mango & papaya fragrance oil
Body Oils: Lime Crisp/ Coconut Water/ Mango Vanilla
These nourishing body oils are amazing to rub into skin after a shower or bath. I like to use these fresh out of the shower without drying my body completely. This just helps to lock in the moisture and makes my skin feel silky smooth. Plus they smell amazing. The Lime Crisp is calming body oil infused with Vitamin C and antioxidants. Mango Vanilla is a balancing body oil enriched with Vitamin E to heal and treat skin. The last oil I received is Coconut water soothing body oil which is an amazing infusion for the senses. Try which ever one suits your mood or all three!
Ingredients: Caribbean coconut oil, safflower oil, organic fragrance oil, non-GMO Vitamin E
