Max Green Alchemy Skin Rescue Blooming Bath Oil
Dry winter skin can really suck, especially when it’s coupled with irritation, redness, and flakiness, which is most of the time if not all. To keep my skin looking plump, hydrated and calm, I’ve taken to drawing up warm baths a few times a week and using this incredibly soothing bath oil by Max Green Alchemy – the Skin Rescue Blooming Bath Oil.

I’ve written a bit about Max Green Alchemy as I really love many, if not all, of their products. They are brilliant and made with organic, cruelty free, and wild crafted plant ingredients which seek to heal the skin from inside out and pretty much succeed in that effort, if you ask me. So, after reviewing this bath oil for about a month, it’s not really a surprise that I’d love this one too!

The scent of this bath oil is AMAZING and it really does soothe irritated and/or dry skin. The scent of it is exactly the same as their Skin Rescue Cream which I reviewed awhile back ( you can see that review – here ) and works just as well at calming skin inflammation as the cream, except without the added hydration you get from the cream. I get extremely dry skin come winter time and that dryness can easily turn into irritated, chapped skin which is not just horrible to look at, it can also be painful. This bath oil has helped me avoid that situation altogether and I am SO thankful!

Aside from being extremely effective at calming and hydrating skin, this bath oil is seriously relaxing. It smells incredible and the oil itself actually dissolves into the water rather than sitting on top of it like most oils do so it really envelops your skin in a cocoon of hydrating oil-infused bath water.

Lastly, one of my favorite things about this product ( and Max Green Alchemy products, in general ) is that fact that not only is this product effective, luxurious, and pleasant to use, but it also has an excellent ethical foundation to stand on. The ingredients are great, natural, cruelty free and the formulation leaves out typical nasties which can cause environmental or bodily harm so it’s really a product I can stand behind and I love that.

More Reasons to Love this Skin Rescue Blooming Bath Oil:

•” Pure organic botanic and essential oils calm, soothe and moisturize skin
• Supports the treatment of psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema
• Unique formula blends with bath water to infuse into skin
• Won’t leave nasty oil residue on the tub
• Steroid-free, paraben-free, petrochemical-free, GMO-free, lanolin-free, polysorbate-free, cruelty-free
• Enchanting non-medicinal aroma of organic chamomile and neroli
• Contains many certified organic ingredients
• 100% plant origin”

The Answer To All Skin Irritation and Inflammation: Skin Rescue Cream

Today’s post is centering on my top hair care products of 2012 and this one is a serious no brainer!

I’ve had such issues this year with my hair being too dry, breakage, fall out, you name it, it’s been an issue for me. The only time I found I truly loved my hair’s look, feel and health was when I used this shampoo and conditioner from Max Green Alchemy (sadly, I’m out of it and too broke to replenish my stock just yet!). This shampoo and conditioner duo is AMAZING. Not only does it hydrate, detangle and bring lots of volume to my hair, it does so without the use of harmful, artificial ingredients!

I will definitely be replenishing my stock of this set ASAP ( you know, when I’m no longer broke) because it softens locks, encourages hair growth, hydrates really well and gives tons of body to my hair where other products have left it flat and lifeless.

I love that their formula is SO clean and green, steroid free, cruelty free, made with 100% plant ingredients AND it’s both sulfate and paraben FREE.

This is worth a look if you have frequent hair troubles like I did and the price is great for the value.

Another Amazing Product from Max Green Alchemy: Skin Rescue Cream

If you’ve been following along my skincare escapades (yes, escapades!), then you’ll have read about my fantastic experience with the Max Green Alchemy’s Scalp Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner Set (Read the Review on that – here!) and what incredible results I had with it.

Personally, when I was asked to review another product from Max Green Alchemy, I was still a bit skeptical. I experience a lot of products and, a lot of times, they have one good product that I truly love, and a host of others that are either just okay or not so good.

This is so NOT the case with Max Green Alchemy!

I have had such amazing results with this cream that I am starting to believe that they can do no wrong!

Their all plant ingredient formulas approach to skincare, haircare and body care has me believing that they are certainly worth the cost as they create natural products that work without harmful ingredients. They are not only natural ingredients, but they are effective ingredients, which I think is something worth noting because I think a lot of people think “oh yes, it’s natural, but does it work, or is it just slopping around on my skin being useless?” 

I totally understand this mentality because there are a lot of useless natural products out there and it can be difficult to wade through the sea of organic, natural frenzy and find the ones that actually do work.

My experiences with this cream are nothing short of miraculous.

I have been suffering from rough dry patches on my shoulders and neck for some time and nothing seemed to be able to diminish them… until now.

I know it sounds a bit cheesy, but it is absolutely true.

This cream in combination with the ONE Skincare Olive Oil Nourishing Treatment (See the review for that – here!) has managed to greatly diminish the patchiness in just under two weeks AND soothe a painful sunburn that I got over this past weekend in only a few days!

It smells just as lovely as the lemon scented shampoo and conditioner set, but this one is more plant-like with less citrus.

I highly recommend this to anyone who is suffering from extreme dryness, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or any other skin irritation.

This cream works! 

I couldn’t be more amazed or happy about this and, although this cream was sent to me for review, I will certainly be purchasing this once this cream runs out!

Get Naturally Shiny & Voluminous Hair with Max Green Alchemy

Recently, I was lucky enough to be sent a full sized set of Max Green Alchemy’s Scalp Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner.

I am always hesitant about green and natural hair care products; not because I am not for all natural, I am really, but I have had some bad experiences when it comes to natural products for hair.

A lot of times, they end up being either too drying or too oily and usually leave cringe-worthy residues on my scalp, which is totally gross and not something I would wish on anyone.

That being said, this shampoo and conditioner set is NOT like that!

Thank God for that because I never know when I’m trying new products what the effects will be; catastrophic or miraculous.

In this case, it was definitely the latter!

This shampoo and conditioner duo is very gentle, using 100% plant/natural origin ingredients including tea tree, lavender, lemon tea tree and macadamia oil, to name a few.

They both have the delicious scent of lemon, which was so energizing to use in the morning, and they have not been like most tea tree hair products I’ve used in the past which I have found to be super drying to my hair.

For instance, my boyfriend has super oily hair and loves the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner set, but I personally cannot use it as I have less oily hair than him and find it much too drying.

Great Qualities:

  • Petrochemical-free
  • Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Lanolin-free
  • Cruelty-free
  • Safe for Color Treated Hair
  • Won an ELLE Beauty Green Star Award for Best Conditioner 2009
  • Approved by Vegan.Org
  • Includes many Certified Organic Ingredients

This set by Max Green Alchemy is incredible and far beats out a lot of other shampoos and conditioners that I have tried.

It beats out a lot of natural and mainstream hair care products alike in that both the shampoo and conditioner can be used for people with all sorts of hair concerns such as dandruff control, itchy scalp, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis of the scalp, oily and dry hair, volume (not a claim by them, but my experience!), oily and dry scalp, and flakiness.

With this awesome formula that really seems like it could suit anyone male or female, I am totally won over. My boyfriend has used this to great result and better oil control, and I have found that my hair is more voluminous, shiny without being oily, frizz FREE, and tangle free.

I experience much less fallout and breakage than with even the Awapuhi Ginger line from Paul Mitchell, which I previously loved for its scent and conditioning qualities.

This set actually beats that for me!

After using both the shampoo and conditioner for around two weeks, I definitely see a difference. I find my hair silkier and more manageable than ever without having to sacrifice my dedication to making most of my products green and natural and that is the number one reason that I am won over by Max Green Alchemy’s Scalp Rescue set.

OVERALL RATING: 9/10

Aside from this wonderful shampoo and conditioner set, they also carry other hair products such as pomade, styling gel, and sculpting pastes.
