I have a special place in my heart for A Girl’s Gotta Spa’s Energizing Citrus Body Lotion. I’ve donated to exactly two kickstarter type campaigns and this is one of the two. I have to believe in a company very strongly to give away money that I’d rather spend on “surprises” for my grandson or on eyeshadow. I believe in A Girl’s Gotta Spa! products or I’d never have done this. (By the way the other company is Whip Hand Cosmetics out of Detroit, Michigan.) shannon spa logoShannon, the blogger and creator of A Girl’s Gotta Spa!, kindly sent me the Energizing Citrus Body Lotion as a thank you for helping with her campaign and I’m excited to review it. I ‘watched’ Shannon’s growth in creating her brand and learned about all she had to go through on her journey. It was very important to Shannon that her brand be manufactured in a good for the earth method. She not only wanted a vegan product but one that is cruelty free. She even went through the testing by Leaping Bunny to be certified as a CF brand. The Energizing Citrus Body Lotion is made of 94% Natural ingredients. There are no sulfates, petrochemicals, formaldehyde, parabens or synthetic fragrances. Gotta love that.

This Body Lotion is simply delicious. It has a tangy citrus fragrance that’s a pleasure to use. I could sniff it all day. Since I don’t wear actual fragrance it’s a pleasure for me to start my day with this wonderful scent.

I love the lightweight feel of this lotion that sinks in quickly. I am always amazed that I don’t have to wait for this to dry in order to put on my slacks yet it makes my skin soft and feeling protected. After I’m done applying my makeup and am ready to face the day I also use this on my hands as a hand cream since it’s so luscious and never makes my hands feel tacky.

The ingredients are the best that Shannon could find. She used blended olive oil, African shea butter, and unprocessed natural cocoa butter to smooth and hydrate. Essential Oils are used to treat your skin and enlighten your senses. Not only will your nose be delighted but so will your sense of touch when you feel how soft your skin is.

There is a warning that if you’ve used this prior to sun exposure on parts of your body to be sure to use a sunscreen. This isn’t just for this A Girl’s Gotta Spa! Citrus Lotion but for any product that uses citrus. I’ve never read that before (or forgot which is typical) so I love the reminder even though I am very careful about sunscreen.

a girls gotta spa siteI love using this because of its soothing relief and how it makes my skin feel hydrated and healthy. I also love that even though the product originally sold for $40 (and still does at some sites that carry it), it is now $26 at Amazon with free shipping if you are a Prime customer. You gotta love that!!

If all of these positive things can be clicked off on your list then it’s time for you to try A Girl’s Gotta Spa’s Energizing Citrus Body Lotion out. Your body will thank you. — Marcia
