I usually have my hair up in a ponytail, no makeup, lucky if I put on perfume.
But that's not to say I don't like trying to take care of my skin. I use Stridex pads daily, and I try to keep my face acne-free with an apricot scrub.
I try not to use a lot of things with chemicals in them, because that's when I seem to have a lot of issues. So when I had the chance to review some all natural skin care products from Country Herbals, I jumped at the chance.
For this review, I was sent a bottle of foot lotion and two 'lip dips,' which are actually lip scrubs.
REVITALIZING FOOT LOTION
Instant relief is what you will feel with our cooling and soothing Foot Spray. Use on feet during day or after a great foot bath. You can almost instantly feel the relief from tension and even slight foot pain, caused during long hours of walking or standing. We added Tea Tree oil which contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and is helpful for athletes foot or just foot odor. Available in 4 fl. oz. bottleI actually requested this for Mama Melissa, since her heels are very dry and cracked. This lotion worked VERY well, bringing moisture back to her heels within a week. She says her heels don't hurt like they used to, and the skin doesn't catch on her socks any more. She really likes the scent of it. It has a sort of menthol-peppermint scent to it, and it cools her feet.
The main problem disabled people will have with this is actually pressing the pump to get the lotion. It presses very hard and doesn't give a lot with each press. I wouldn't say this is a problem, but the bottle is glass. So, disabled people may want to be careful when handling it... it may shatter if dropped.
VANILLA ORANGELip Dip is also known as Lip scrub. It uses a gritty substance that to exfoliate the surface layers when rubbed on your lips. Lip scrubs remove the dead outer surface of your lips, but unlike body scrubs, they are generally safe if ingested. Lip scrubs are made to be sweet and great-tasting so scrubbing is healthy and enjoyable.

These actually feel more like a lip balm, rather than a lip scrub. They are made with beeswax, candelilla wax and vegetable oil, with added essential oils.
The Vanilla Orange is heavy on the orange scent, smelling just like a freshly peeled orange. I didn't taste too much of the vanilla or the orange taste in this one.
The Peppermint actually smells like Thin Mints or Keebler® Grasshopper® cookies; you can smell the minty-ness, but it also smells like there is a chocolate scent to it. This makes my lips tingle with coolness. There's not much of an actual taste to this either.
Personally, I like the Peppermint Lip Dip over the Vanilla Orange one. I like the smell and the way it makes my lips tingle.
The main problem I see disabled people having with these Dips is opening them. These come in screw-top containers, so they may be difficult to open. I had to use my palms, twisting in opposite directions to open them.
The foot lotion and the Vanilla Orange Lip Dip are available from the Country Herbal website.
Love these products. I like that they are all natural and won't hurt me with unknown chemicals
