Created by certified esthetician and plant lover, Kelly Gray, Austin’s own Absorb Skincare is a lush, handcrafted green beauty line made with wildcrafted and organic plant essential oils and pure plant butters. I’ve been using The Mist and The Body Oil and, having tested a lot of products, I can honestly say that Absorb’s quality is the top. And the best news? Their beautiful, 100% organic cotton makeup bag (free with your order) provides jobs for the women of West Bengal, allowing them to stay out of the sex trade in India…so beautiful!

THE BODY OIL
The words that come to mind when using The Body Oil: luscious, nourishing and rich. You know those green beauty products that you only use on special occasions because they’re a bit too precious to use all the time? Yeah? Well, this organic body oil is one of those for me. If I’m just out of the shower and meeting up with people or going on a date, I’m reaching for this. I highly recommend using this when you know you’re going to be sniffed. If you’re a fan of a citrusy, light Neroli, you’ll be in absolute heaven. Packed with super nourishing and moisturizing oils, this fast-absorbing body oil is so light and slips onto the skin beautifully (I like to apply it on damp skin straight out of the shower). Just look at those organic ingredients: *Sunflower oil,*Jojoba wax, *Marula oil, *Camellia seed oil, *Moringa oil, *Neroli essential oil, Vitamin E oil non-GMO. * organic or wildcrafted
My gosh, how I love a toner. Especially a toner that’s handmade in the USA and smells of Rose Geranium! Refreshing and great for all skin types, The Mist is made from 100% rose geranium hydrosol and it’s perfect to spray pre-moisturizer. I’ve also been using it to set my makeup and before I use my (chilled) jade roller. As you may know, I’m a big fan of keeping products cool in the hot weather, so I recommend you keep this is the fridge and spritz it throughout the day to hydrate the skin and freshen up makeup. Absorb also suggests using this as a aftershave for men (brilliant idea). If you’re a fan of rose geranium, you are going to absolutely adore this organic skin tonic.
PACKAGING THAT GIVES BACK
This is the kind of detail that makes me really excited about Absorb. First off, you get a free cosmetic bag with your Absorb purchase (shown on right), but the coolest thing about this bag? Not only are they made from 100% cotton, but… “The cosmetic bags are from a company called Freeset that works to help keep girls in India out of the sex trade industry by providing jobs for them. Thousands of women in West Bengal are vulnerable to sex trafficking. Many are below poverty line and the girls are generationally stolen or sold into sex trade as a means to support their family. By providing work for these girls, Freeset offers a way for supporting their families. Each item is handcrafted. Freeset is also a member of the Fair Trade Federation.” YES! How thoughtful and kind of Kelly from Absorb to do this? I’m truly so proud to be showcasing her work on my blog. Even their cards are 100% cotton made from leftover waste fabric from t-shirts! Support this brand that’s supporting our planet and our fellow women!
