I was approached by Stevonne, the owner of Beija Flor Naturals, to see if I was interested in reviewing some of their products. I was immediately interested because I was familiar with them from other blog reviews, and I jump at the chance to feature any organic products.
Beija Flor Naturals is a line of hair and skin care products that's based in California, but draws inspiration from Brazil. Their vegan and vegetarian products are free of petrochemicals, made from raw vegetable based ingredients, and are naturally preserved whenever possible. They sustainably source their healing ingredients from the Amazon rainforest and have a commitment to keeping their products affordable for all.
I received three products to review, the first of which is the Agave Aloe Facial Polisher. It's made from raw organic sugar and has a soothing herbal scent. The granules are pretty big, so I will definitely be using this only once a week. I think that if I used it more it would be too abrasive for my skin. I've read from most places that you should only exfoliate once a week anyway, though, so this is perfect for that. I've used it twice since receiving it and my skin feels nice and smooth after.
After using the facial scrub I applied the Acai Mango Face Lotion, which is formulated for all skin types. This product also has a light scent that is very fresh smelling. The main ingredient is organic shea. This cream is pretty thick, so I used it as my nighttime moisturizer. It absorbed well and since it's so thick, a little went a long way.
The third and final product I tried was the Licorice Root Scalp Elixir, and I have to say that it was my least favorite of the bunch. I wasn't expecting this product, so I had to look it up on their website to see how to use it. It's formulated to relieve dry, itchy scalp, so I thought that it might be good for me since I do have that condition from time to time. I used it once, but I won't use it again because it left my hair too oily. I have thick hair and an oily scalp to begin with, so this was just not a good combination for that. If I do ever try it again, I'll use less and maybe spend some more time washing it out, but in general I just don't feel it was a good fit for me.

Bottom Line: Beija Flor Naturals has a wide variety of skincare and hair products for those seeking vegan/vegetarian, organic options. Their prices are affordable and I really enjoyed the facial scrub and lotion that I received.
