One of my favorite new stores (new to me) is prAna in the Valley Fair Mall. It’s a yoga clothing store, but they also have mats, DVDs, books, CDs, and body care products. I even bought a couple sets of wooden cutlery a few weeks back. From the website:
“We’re always looking for new ways to fold sustainable materials and practices into our collection, working to reduce the impact on soils, water supplies and other natural resources.”
So I knew I had to try their body products (on sale of course – 75% off – I would not pay the full price on these things!). The company that makes these products is called Pangea Organics. Their motto:
“Ecocentric bodycare. Always beneficial. Never artificial.”
Bobby and I have been using their shower gels for the last month or so. I like the fragrances – they are strong in the shower and make it smell awesome, but once you get out and dried, it’s much more subtle. (Original price – $16/bottle.)
I like the “Malagasy Ylang Ylang & Linden Flower” scent. I also tried the “Italian White Sage with Geranium & Yarrow” but it was a little odd.
I’ve also been using their facial scrub – “Egyptian Geranium with Adzuki Bean & Cranberry”.
This is fantastic. The scrubbies are gentle but effective and it smells divine. (Original price – $32/bottle.)
I have also been using their toner (for oil-rich to demanding skin) – “Argentinean Tangerine & Thyme”.
It’s gentle, yet effective. Another win! They also have options for balanced & combo skin, as well as thirsty skin. (Original price – $26/bottle.)
AND, lastly, I’ve been digging their chapstick – “Egyptian Fennel with Grapefruit & Sweet Orange”.
This is so smooth and soothing when it goes on your lips. I need to get more soon. (Original price – $12/bottle.)
