sk*p Clean Body Care Review and Coupon

sk*p is a new conscious hair and body care line that aims to break the beauty industry of its plastic addiction. Their products are packaged in the past-free, shower-friendly BeautyCarton to help cut down on plastic waste.

*Disclaimer: These products were sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

The sk*p cartons are made with 100 percent eco-friendly, biodegradable cardboard. The beauty industry produces about 120 billion units of plastic packaging a year, so this is a great step towards reducing that statistic. I hope other brands follow along!

The sk*p products feature the trademarked G-HoneyBiome, which was born from founder Mark Veeder's previous co-founding of Farmacy. The products use a proprietary bio-fermented honey complex that strengthens and balances the skin's microbiome. The honey is responsibly harvested and locally produced at sk*p's farm in upstate New York.

I tried the Face + Body Cleanser and Face + Body Moisturizer. Above you can see the ingredients for both products (click the image to enlarge).

The Face + Body Cleanser cleans and balances your skin without stripping it of the essential lipids in the skin barrier. It also rebalances the lipids for oily skin and boosts the skin's natural ability to moisturize for dry skin. Protecting the skin barrier is essential to keeping your skin its healthiest, and I like that this cleanser is effective without stripping my skin of its natural microbiome.

I used the Face + Body Cleanser in the shower after my martial arts class and it lathered up nicely. It has a light citrus scent that isn't overpowering and didn't linger on my skin after. My skin didn't feel overly-dry after use.

After cleansing in the shower, I followed up with the Face + Body Moisturizer. The lotion also has a ctirus-y scent and the texture is just thick enough to allow for smooth application. It absorbed quickly into my skin without feeling dense or greasy. The moisturizer soothes and calms skin and hydrates deeply with hyaluronic acid sunflower oil. Hyaluronic acid is an excellent ingredient for moisturizing, as it is a natural lubricant found in the body and it is a humectant (meaning it helps the skin retain moisture).

Bottom Line: The sk*p Face + Body Cleanser and Face + Body Moisturizer both worked great for me. I love that they're cruelty-free, ethically-sourced, and made from sustainable packaging. If you're looking to clean up your bath and body routine in more ways than one, definitely check out sk*p!
