Review & Giveaway: Divine Line SkinCare's Coco Beauty Balm

Hi everyone!

I have had the pleasure of working with Patty from Divine Line Skincare on some fun reviews that may be useful for your winter skincare collections! (Be sure to read her shop spotlight for more info!)

CocoBeautyBalm

Let's start off with a nice and thorough description of what Coco Beauty Balm is used for.

Coco Beauty Balm may be used to cleanse or moisturize your areas of your face with it's smooth and moisture-locking texture.

It can be used as moisturizer, cleanser, and even for foundation innovation!

To cleanse: Warm a small scoop of balm between your hands.
Gently press into skin and massage in circular motions. Gently wipe off dirt, oil and makeup
with a nice wet/warm to hot microfibre or facecloth.

To moisturize: Apply a small amount anywhere moisture is needed – a very small dot of it after cleansing to make your face glow!
Tho’ the product was made mainly for facial use, DO try it anywhere...back of hands, neck, feet (careful slippery...).

You only need a tiny amount anywhere you want to use it. It’s super moisture in jar! 

I used it in the shower as a cleanser but your face will feel like a matte canvas after it washes off as well. It has this light orange fragrance to it that is not overwhelming but really nice. This product is not a cream or lotion, but a gel/liquid consistency. It's thicker upon application but it spreads on your face like rich butter!



Now I decided to test out this product as a cleanser because I love massaging my skin with natural products since I used to have some mixed skin type/rosacea that left some scarring behind. After a long day of work or school or whatever your schedule involves, some facial indulgent is always nice.

So I totally squealed in the shower over the fact that this balm has mango butter in it. I LOVE mangoes and I rarely see it in facial products so that was exciting!

I have a lot of scarring so this product doesn't help fight acne or blemishes obviously but it's always nice to give your face a break from harsher chemicals with a thick layer of moisture. There is a smooth finish  to this product so I recommend you tie up your hair if it's long before using the product.

Remember to use a microfibre or plain washcloth hotter than warm and you let it STEAM on your face then use WASH IT OFF ...twice (i.e both sides of cloth). Your face will feel hydrated and baby soft afterwards!



The ingredients are straight from Divine Line Skincare's description:
Ingredients: A virgin coco oil base comprising 1 of only 7-9 small amount each of beautifying ingredients - mango butter, soy oil & lecithin, Xanthan, oat beta glucan, & vanilla & orange peel extracts.

I cannot express to you how much I love natural products. Look at all the ingredients this product does not use!

**Formulated WITHOUT: parabens, phythlate, propylene glycol, mineral oil, paraffin, DEA, synthetic fragrance, animal ingredients (except goats milk powder or whole milk powder).


What is really cool about this product is that there is a foundation innovation aspect to it to make your own custom moisturized treatment foundation. I couldn't test this out because I don't use foundation but I can see it working out really well. Try it out if you can by mixing the balm with loose mineral powder in the palm of your hand with your fingers or a foundation brush!

I would recommend this product for anyone whose looking for some moisture lock-in with a gentle cleanser or moisturizer.  My face felt really invigorated and hydrated after every shower!

Hope you enjoyed the review!

  1. I really like the vanilla rose eye de-puff product. As I got older, my eyes started to set and get droopy so I'm curious as to if this will work!

    Thanks!

  2. I really like the FreshClean Room Mist. I don't really use too many different facial/skin products so this is definitely something that's pretty universal and would come in handy for me!

  3. It's hard to pick a favorite! I like the LavenderOrange Facial Toner. I moved to Korea and there is a lot of air pollution here. Since the Orange citrus has an ability to clean away dirt that even soap cleansing might miss, I think it would help get rid of all the dust and dirt that builds up on my skin. It also helps improve blood circulation and minimizes pores.

    Thanks,

  4. I like the PostShaveBalm D Man AloeVeraLime because I really like aloe and lime. It can be used after shaving to soften, soothe, moisturize, and condition your skin.

  5. There are so many wonderful items in this shop. This month is eczema awareness month, and this item COMPLETELY caught my eye, because my son has had severe eczema since he was just 6 weeks old:
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/108442581/easeup-psoriasis-and-eczema-moisturizing
    I can't exactly tell why I love it, because I haven't tried it. However, I do like the information in the item description. It's very detailed and gives info on how the product is made, with what key ingredients, and what the product does - even including how much to apply (with picture). I am EXTREMELY tempted to purchase this product right now just to try it out (but I will have to wait for next month's budget).
    With all that said, I didn't have to look very long to find my favorite item in the shop. I will have to say that it's going to take me a lot longer to see what ELSE I can find in there, because I know I'll be finding much more!

  12. I would really love to try the Ease Up Psoriasis and Eczema Moisturizing ointment (http://www.etsy.com/listing/108442581/easeup-psoriasis-and-eczema-moisturizing). I have this skin asthma/allergy/eczema on my feet that is the major reason of my frustrations over the past 3 years because cortisone creams didn't seem to heal it. It only made my skin thinner and the eczema keeps coming back especially during wet or cold season. I tried different ointments and creams to no avail and I hate going to the doctor. I would be more than willing to try that product so that I could start wearing 'revealing' heels again.

  43. The Lavender Homemade Shea Soap is my fav!Lavender is the best PRE sleep scent to relax! I use it on everything with my kiddos and myself! And what is even better about this soap is that it is formulated without any animal ingredients! (Which for our vegan family makes me even happier!) It says it has a touch of orange as well so I am sure that makes it smell so good in a hot bath or shower! I would love to try this!!!

    Thanks for the giveaway! mandyandcameron at yahoo dot com

  44. My favorite is the Divine Luminous Mature Face Serum. I'm in Colorado, and the heater is coming on which is drying out my skin terribly.
    Plus, I'm intrigued by the ingredients, which I've read about but are rather uncommon (Helicrysum oil, and Carrot Seed oil, etc). It sounds like she used very potent essential oils, and I've not seen these ingredients anywhere else!
