They sent us some samples to check out. The 18-in-1 Hemp Peppermint Pure-Castile soaps smells like the holidays packed into a bottle. It's like I rubbed candy cane everywhere, but no stickiness! The Organic Lip Balm glides on smoothly and leaves the lips feeling moisturized without any scent. The Lavender Coconut Organic Hair Creme is not overpowering and it calms hair to creates a shine without being overly heavy. Lastly, the Orange Lavender Hand & Body lotion is soothing and moisturizing without being overly greasy. It think it has a light Patchouli aroma to it, but it fades out once it sinks in.
