Living Libations

Living Libations is a Canadian brand with an original take on natural skincare. They have a unique, whimsical aesthetic, and their super-concentrated products are made with the purest natural ingredients available. I’d reviewed some of their products in the past, and I was thrilled to receive the following products to test and review. Here are my thoughts:

Living Libations Best Skin Ever Sandalwood:

Living Libations is best known for their Best Skin Ever range, and this is one of the more recent iterations of their bestseller. So what is Best Skin Ever? It’s an oil cleanser that you can also use as a face, hair and body oil. Unlike most other versions of Best Skin Ever, the sandalwood does not contain coconut oil. This makes it perfect for those of us who are sensitive to coconut oil. No matter how pure, products with coconut oil break me out, and I’m so glad this is 100% coconut oil-free.

KeekoI met Sabrina, the fabulous founder of Keeko, in Sydney last month, and she told me she’d love to hear my thoughts on her oil pulling sachets. I’d heard good things about Keeko, and I was excited to try it. Sabrina had spoken passionately about organic ingredients and clever packaging during the short chat we had (she loves Tata Harper, just like me!), so I was sure her products would be very high quality. And I wasn’t wrong. I’d tried oil pulling with pure coconut oil in the past, and while I liked the idea of shiny white teeth, I’d found the whole process tedious and unenjoyable. It was a pain to melt the right amount of oil and I hated the fatty flavour of coconut oil. Keeko makes swirling oil in your mouth as sexy as possible, with its colourful packaging and exciting flavours. If you’ve never tried oil pulling, this will be a fantastic introduction to it. If you already do it and are bored of plain old coconut oil, this is a great way to add some excitement to it.

Living Libations is one of those rare brands that have unanimously positive reviews online. Normally, you always see one or two people complaining about cystic acne from using cleansing oils, but their Sea Buckthorn Best Skin Ever Cleansing Oil has probably the most number of positive reviews I’ve seen for ANY skincare product. These reviews are not just positive but poetic: people often use words like ‘magic’ and ‘alchemy’ to describe their experience with the brand.

Living Libations is a Canadian brand  created by Nadine Artemis, and if you are interested, do check out her YouTube channel, where she demonstrates some of her products with husband Ron. Living Libations products range from cleansers to dental care, hair care, perfumes, salt inhalers and personal lubricants. They are all very intriguing formulations, and if I had unlimited funds, I’d try every one of them. Since I’m always on a strict budget, I had to narrow my options down to three. Here are my reviews: View Post
