I recently tested out the two phenomenal products from LaLicious above- the Sugar Reef Body Oil and the Sugar Reef Body Butter. I highly recommend these products both for how fantastic they feel and smell on the skin, and also because the line is all natural. The products from the Sugar Reef collection smell SO GOOD, like how I would hope to smell fresh out of the shower, or as their site details “clean and refreshing like an ocean breeze.” More specifically the blend is exotic casaba melon, ginger and white tea. These scents would be awesome on males and females alike and are quite luxurious. The body oil is moisturizing without being greasy and the body butter is intensely hydrating and sinks into the skin immediately. These lovely beauty products have earned themselves a place on my bathroom sink. The body oil is applied after every shower, and I use the body butter every time I wash my hands.

In honor of Earth Day 2013, LaLicious, will collaborate for a second year with Save Our Shores (SOS), the oldest marine conservation group in the Monterey Bay region. Paying homage to the beauty of the ocean that inspired the LaLicious Sugar Reef collection, the brand will donate 20% of ALL Sugar Reef sales during the month of April from their website to Save Our Shores whose core mission is to care for the marine environment through ocean awareness, advocacy, and citizen action.

Lavanila is a brand that I recently discovered that has become a fast favorite. I was immediately drawn to the quality of their fragrances and was later surprised to find that they are an all natural company. Their products contain no parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, silicones, propylene glycol, mineral oils, synthetic dyes, sulfates, chemical sunscreens, or aluminum, all of which have either been proven or suspected to be dangerous in some way.

If they didn’t seem dedicated enough yet to our beautiful planet, maybe this will convince you. Lavanila is dedicating the entire month of April to working with the Nature Conservancy, on their Plant a Billion Trees campaign. Lavanila will plant two trees for every: new order on; new “Like” on Lavanila’s Facebook page; new twitter follower; and new instagram follower throughout the month. While encouraging fans to spread the word about this exciting Earth Day campaign, Lavanila will also offer 30% off all online purchases to everyone once 1,000 new trees have been planted.

Join me in the giveaway attached to this post to save the Earth two trees at a time! The winner will receive a fragrance of their choice from Lavanila’s line- may I suggest their newest fragrance, Fresh Vanilla Lemon.
