Winter has been slow to leave this year, and it has taken a toll on our moods, our roads, our schedules, and even our skin. Not even the tried and true methods of preventing cracking hands and rough skin didn’t work for me this year. Worn out skin like mine needs a kickstart into spring. Enter a new product developed by Sarah Walton, a New Jersey entrepreneur. Better Way Love has hand creams that are completely organic, formaldehyde-free, and non-greasy. The scents are light, and there is even a Plain Jane cream for those who prefer no scent at all.
I have been using the Fresh Morning Grapefruit whipped hand cream, and I really like that the scent is present, but not overwhelming. I am also relieved that the cream is immediately absorbed, leaving no residue, so it doesn’t keep from my morning routine. I also have it on good authority that the Birthday Cake cream smells as delicious as the grapefruit-scented cream is invigorating.
The products at Better Way Love are non-GMO certified, gluten-free, and the creams are made with almond oil. Those who wish to have a nut-free option can do so as a special order! The Better Way Love nut-free hand cream is made with antioxidant rich grapeseed oil, and is still organic and gluten-free.
I also tried the brand new Coconut & Lime Organic Sugar Scrub in an attempt to bring back a semblance of humanity to my heels, feet, and elbows. Not only did it soften my beleaguered skin, but its scent made me feel like I was on the beach with a margarita. This product utilizes the oil from the coconut to full effect. It’s powerful and gentle, all at once. And my feet are now presentable for sandal weather.
Better Way Love has generously offered to send a 9 oz. jar of the NEW Coconut & Lime Organic Sugar Scrub to one lucky reader. This is a $42 value — so make sure to enter! If you aren’t chosen, don’t worry. All versions of the sugar scrubs will be available in April, and they are much more affordable than an island vacation!
