Cocoon Apothecary :: Review & Giveaway {Ends 8/5} US/CAN


Cocoon Apothecary goes back to the basics with nature's best ingredients to offer up a truly natural line of skin and body care. Their products are safe, non-toxic, eco-friendly, flower-based and incredibly good for the skin, body and the earth too. Without the use of chemicals and artificial ingredients, this Canadian company is able to offer the power of nature in a bottle with amazing results. After checking out a sample of their Rosey Cheeks Facial Cream and absolutely loving it, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to write a full review of three other products from their line of natural skincare.
    Petal Purity Exfoliating Facial Cleanser {$17.79} - My face has been glowing since I started using this cleanser every morning! It's a beautiful floral aroma that isn't overly irritating for my sensitive nose. It's actually refreshing, bright, and perfect to wake my senses in the morning. Not only do the gentle jojoba beads in this exfoliating cleanser take care of the clogged pores I have, but it also gets rid of the dry flaky skin that appears on my face that drives me nuts everyday. Crazy thing is that I actually have combination skin and still get those dry flakes on the oily areas! This rejuvenating cleanser makes my face feel a little tight and toned but not dry at all because of the coconut oil in it that soothes and nourishes at the same time. The result of this cleanser reveals incredibly smooth, renewed skin after each wash. This has quickly become my new favorite daily cleanser!

    Magic Bean Body Lotion {$20.75} - This lightly scented body lotion has almost a milk chocolatey aroma with a hint of coffee. This creamy, milky lotion goes on silky smooth, spreads easily although thick, and absorbs very well. This non-greasy formula leaves my legs feeling moisturized and firm. I definitely see a drastic improvement in the typically dry skin I have, and it lasts all day and then some the longer I continue to use it. With firming, anti-aging cocoa butter, hydrating sweet almond oil, coffee essential oil as a wonderful antioxidant, and other natural ingredients, I could really see and feel each ingredient and it's overall effectiveness when combined together in this lotion. It's absolutely fabulous!

    Eyewaken Eye Cream {$19.76} - Lord knows I have the darkest circles under my eyes and puffy under eyes in the morning should be considered my signature look. Anything to aid in that department is certainly welcome! This smells light with a hint of rose and herbs. It's soothing, firming, rich, non-greasy and is full of ingredients that fight those dark circles, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles. This cream is packed with Vitamin E from the Argan Oil to repair and reduce those fine lines, Almond Oil to lighten those dark circles, and Cornflower Hydrosol to reduce puffiness. I haven't noticed any immediate improvements or changes yet after a week of use, but the ingredients are so good for my skin that I'm going to definitely continue to use it. A little itty bitty dab goes so far, so I'm guessing this little 1 ounce container will last a very, very long time.

    There you have it. Amazing products! I love the eco-friendly glass packaging for the larger products since I enjoy reusing glass containers, but I also like that the facial cleanser and body lotion use a pump. It's so convenient and controlled so you can easy dispense exactly how much you need each time. The pump feature also helps you avoid introducing bacteria or debris into the container from opening and closing each time, and also from using your fingers in the container.

    Like I mentioned, Cocoon Apothecary is committed to using the power of nature in their products which are also...

    100% not tested on animals
    100% vegan
    100% free of petroleum, parabens & petrochemicals
    100% free of synthetic fragrance
    100% biodegradable
    100% recyclable bottles/packaging
    100% gluten-free

    I'm pretty stoked about how natural this skincare line actually is. Plenty of companies might say they are "natural" but Cocoon Apothecary actually deserves that title and even more. Their entire line of skincare has a zero rating on the EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database which is huge indicator to me of a deep commitment to safe, all-natural skincare. If that rating doesn't tell you anything, just check out the ingredients of each product which are clearly disclosed on their website. Often times I find a skincare product I love but not every single one in their lineup is up to my personal standards and may contain ingredients I'm not okay with. With Cocoon Apothecary I know I can rest easy and shop without worry. Each and every product is safe for my skin, truly natural, effective, and healthy.
