Surya Brasil Sapien Women Shower Gel and Body Moisturizer

The beautiful Brazilian company Surya Brasil has a new line focused on women called ‘Sapien Women‘. I have been testing several items they sent to the BIZ and two that have really impressed me are the Shave Gel ($17) and the Body Moisturizer ($23.50).


Surya Brasil Sapien Women Shave Gel


slippery smooth and super effective

I am big on using my husband’s products for things like shaving, but this is a shave gel I want all for myself. It is a slippery gel that makes shaving (not something I typically enjoy) a pleasure. I am weird…I can’t stand stubble so I shave my legs every day. That means I need help keeping my legs from getting irritated and this totally does the trick. Ingredients like Cupuaçu butter, Pracaxi oil, Macadamia oil, and Vitamin E keep my legs soft, smooth, and happy. What is NOT included is notable as well:  no sulfates, parabens, BHT, EDTA, synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, GMOs, phthalates, alcohol, or silicon.


Surya Brasil Sapien Women Body Moisturizer


thick and creamy goodness

While the Shave Gel leaves my legs moist and smooth, the Body Moisturizer is like icing on the cake. This is a thick, creamy moisturizer in a humongous tube. It smells pleasantly fruity and sweet, and the scent doesn’t linger. It has tons of skin friendly ingredients like Cupuaçu and Murumuru butters, Pracaxi and Açaí oils, Amaranth protein, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera juice. The moisturizer soaks in quickly and boy does it soften skin, plus it keeps skin hydrated all day long. It is a wonderful vegan option to soothe dry winter skin. Like the Shower Gel, it is missing a lot of stuff you don’t want in your skin care – no sulfates, parabens, BHT, EDTA, synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, GMOs, phthalates, alcohol, or silicon.
