My Thoughts

I may not be pregnant, but I still know a good thing when I see it.  I always prefer using natural plant based products for my skin care regimen, and Nine Naturals has some that are pretty outstanding. I got to try a few of their products, and I was really impressed with the results. 

Natural Sunscreen SPF 32-   There were lots of things I liked about this product. The sunscreen is not at all greasy or sticky when it's applied. There is no scent, so it doesn't smell like chemicals. It almost feels like you're applying regular lotion. Most importantly, it worked perfectly. There was not one speck of sunburn on me even after a full eight hours in the sun. Of course, I did reapply several times during the day.

  Soothing Body Wash - This soothing body wash is gentle against your skin. The citrus and gerumian aroma is a great way to help you get started in the morning, and the light scent clings to your skin long after you've turned off the shower. It comes in a nice squeeze bottle for easy access and a little bit goes a long way. It leaves your skin soft and smooth to the touch, and there's never any greasy residue. 

These products were just fantastic and a great choice for anyone who has sensitive skin or just enjoys all natural skincare, as well as those who are pregnant. If you'd like to learn more about Nine Naturals, and all the products in their line, be sure to visit Destination Maternity.
