Coco Beza: Handmade Soap, Salves, Lotion Bars, & Soy Candles

Hello lovelies! Today I'm sharing a few different hand care products from a brand I've recently tried, Coco Beza.

As a nail polish blogger, I have a fairly extensive skin care regimen to keep my hands and cuticles healthy, with an arsenal of lotions, balms, butters, creams, and salves! I like to use a lot of different products depending on what I'm doing, the state of my hands/skin, and, probably most of all, which delicious things I want to smell like! (I usually go for floral, herbal, or woodsy scents, but everyone has their own personal preference!) As a result, I'm always trying new brands and products to find out what really makes my skin happy.

I came across Coco Beza when I was searching through Etsy to find handmade skin care products with a nice blend of premium oils and butters, as well as my favorite fragrances. Here's a look at some of the products I purchased.

Coco Beza Island Body Butter

Coco Beza Island Body Butter is a rich and creamy moisturizer made up of "luxurious tropical butters & pure essential oils." It has a very thick and luxurious feel, yet absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves it feeling soft, supple, and hydrated. I especially love the herbaceous spa-like scent of the essential oil blend-- Lavender, Lemon, Orange, and Neroli. It's soothing and relaxing without being overwhelming, just lovely!

Coco Beza Gardener's Hands Salve

Coco Beza Gardener's Hands Salve is a concentrated blend of antioxidant & nutrient-rich oils steeped with healing herbs, plus pure essential oils, and soothing beeswax. The texture is like a typical salve or balm: a soft solid that easily melts into the skin on contact. It is a bit slick or "greasy" at first but absorbs into the skin quite nicely. The feel is very nourishing and pleasant, although I found the peppermint scent to be a bit strong for my taste.

As a side note: when I say greasy, I don't mean it as a bad thing. I find it very calming to just relax while massaging oils into my hands and cuticles. But for instance, greasy + keyboard may not be ideal.

Coco Beza Aromatherapy Neroli Blossoms Massage Bar, Large Size

Coco Beza Aromatherapy Neroli Blossoms Massage Bar is a solid lotion bar made up of rich, nourishing butters and sensual & exotic essential oils. It's a completely solid bar that melts from the warmth of your skin. The scent is truly intoxicating; a fresh and bright orange blossom-like floral. I found the oils melted into the skin easily and felt extremely moisturizing, and also absorbed pretty quickly, leaving hands feeling soft and silky. And since it's so concentrated, a little goes a long way!

Coco Beza Aromatherapy Neroli Blossoms Massage Bar, Small Size

This is the same bar in the smaller size. Both would be very travel & purse-friendly!

Coco Beza Soap and Salve Samples

I received samples of a few more products, soaps and a different salve, which I look forward to trying!

I've sampled just a few of Coco Beza's products so far, but I'm certain I'll be back for more! What are your favorite types of skin care products? How do you choose which ones to try?
