I’m not sure what a Sea Buckthorn is, but I know I like it.
I helped Neil get some donations for his Yoga Dollars program, and Weleda came through for him in a very big way. We were both blown away by their generosity. Neil gave me some of the Sea Buckthorn Creamy Body Wash as a thank you for helping him out, and I have to say, it’s heavenly.
It doesn’t lather much, but it distributes well, and has a luxuirous feel. We have somehow associated lather with clean, and the two things really aren’t related. I like to pack light, and used the body wash to wash my face and take my makeup off while I was away last week. It worked wonderfully in that capacity too.
Neil said that it smells like a creamsicle, and I have to agree, although, I want to add that it’s not cloying or fake smelling in anyway. The scent is uplifting and cheery, and a great way to start the day. I highly recommend it, and plan on purchasing it in the future.
Oh, and I just looked up Sea Buckthorn. It’s a shrub that grows in China and Russia, although it’s also being farmed in Canada now. It helps fight errosion, and has a high vitamin C and flavinoid content. You learn something new every day, huh?
You can find Weleda products at Target and a wide selection of other stores.
