This kit is packed full of great products! I love the cuticle moisturizers and shea butter especially! Everything is effective and smells great. My only reservation is that the packaging suggests that the products are natural, which is a little deceiving: There are many natural ingredients in these products, but they are by no means 100% natural and not at all organic. If this is important to you, I suggest using products by burts bees or lush, but otherwise, these are great products!
The kit contains a cross section of their products. Some of them are 100% natural, others are natural based or are made from all-natural botanicals. Each item is clearly labeled so you can see which ones are which.
I received this sampler kit from the lovely J.R Watkins Apothecary People a couple of days ago and haven't stopped slathering myself with it since. It comes with 8 travel sized creams, oils and shea butters in several delicious scents:
Aloe & Green Tea Hand & Body Lotion
Mango Shea Butter
Lemon Cream Shea Butter
Peppermint Rejuvenating Foot Cream
Pure Lemon Body Oil
Vanilla Hand & Body Lotion
Lemon Hand & Cuticle Salve
My favorite scent is the Lemon Cream. It smells so good I think I could probably eat it. Even my husband commented that I smelled like desert when I put on the Lemon Cream Shea Butter. It reminds me of my Mother's lemon meringue pie. Yummy!
I have very dry hands and feet and most lotions and creams will only keep my skin soft for about an hour. These shea butters keep them soft for hours - even after washing my hands.
Aside from that deliciousness, I'm also really impressed with the company. J.R Watkins has been around for nearly 140 years and has always focused on quality and what works. They are also good corporate citizens and donate to charities that benefit the communities they are part of. The Apothecary line carries natural based and 100% all-natural products.
Honestly, if I hadn't received this kit, I probably wouldn't have tried the line as I have enough half used lotions and potions under my bathroom sink to fill a large garbage can. However, now that I have, I'm hooked and will certainly be stocking up when the sampler sizes run out.
Especially that Lemon Cream Shea Butter.... Mmmmmm!
