An Honest Review - Archipelago Lotion
Oh goodness... where do I start with this one?! At the Pebble, we carry some really (and I mean really) great products. When I first began working here I was introduced to the Archipelago line of products, as it was a staple... and WOW - I can see why we've kept this product on our shelves for years!
I'll start out with being completely transparent: I'm picky about lotion, and I'm not just saying that for the sake of this post. I really am. It can't be too heavy, but has to be ultra nourishing (for my lizard-like, dehydrated skin). I like a pleasant fragrance, but nothing too overpowering, and of course using natural ingredients and NO icky stuff that's bad for you.
I can't tell you how much I love this line. It checks off everything on my list. Each fragrance is gentle enough for my sensitive nose, yet is not at all absent. It has this exquisite silkiness to it with no greasy leftover feeling. In addition, these lotions are Paraben Free, Gluten Free, Vegan, contain no Phthalates, no artificial colors, 100% Cruelty-Free, and are 100% Non-GMO.
The scents we currently carry in our boutiques are Oat Milk, Lavender, Morning Mint, and Charcoal Rose. All of them earn five out of five stars for this massage therapist! Oat Milk is a best seller with our guests, while I have a great love for Morning Mint (but really, they're all great). Whichever scent you choose, you'll be enveloped in a silky smooth, delicately scented aromatherapy delight.
Like all body lotions, the Archipelago line is best when used right after a shower while the skin is still dewy to lock in moisture (Morning Mint has a gentle burst of citrus freshness that is GREAT for waking up), but really, this awesome product is great any time of day or night. I love it so much I'm always slathering it on!
So if you're on the hunt for a new lotion, or looking for a great gift for a friend or loved one, check out our Archipelago section in our stores and purchase what I consider a five-star treat!
