Raspberry Mint ~ Review + Giveaway Info

I recently received a lovely package from Raspberry Mint and I'm going to share my thoughts on a few of the products I received. But before I get into my review, I'd love to briefly introduce you to the brand!

Raspberry Mint is a Canadian company that focuses on creating products that are chic, eco-friendly and organic. They are against animal cruelty/testing and create everything by hand and in small batches.

The first product I tried and my favourite of the bunch, is the Relax Babe Aromatherapy roll-on. Made with 100% pure essential oils (lavender and lime) and blended with a mix of coconut and grapeseed oil, this aromatherapy roll-on is sure to help you relax! When first applied you can smell both the lavender and lime but as it dries down the lime scent is more prevalent. I apply it on my temples, back of neck and wrists before bed. I have become quite addicted to this blend and am happy to have it as a part of my nightly routine.

Next up is the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask for face and body. This mask contains only 2 ingredients; Dead Sea Mineral Mud and preservative DMDM Hydantoin (0.009%) to prevent the growth of bacteria and moulds.

The mask is easy to spread and dries rather quickly. It is a bit difficult to remove so I use a face cloth soaked in warm water to gently wipe it away. Once removed my face feels slightly tightened and is ready for moisturizer. It doesn't dry out my skin but it doesn't hydrate it either. As with any mud or clay mask, I highly recommend applying cream, lotion or moisturizer after using it.

Finally, the Diva Night Repair Moisturizing Hemp Lips Conditioner. This product is made with Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Beeswax Beads, Organic Flavour Oil, Organic Argan Oil, Vitamin E and Organic Hemp Seed Oil. Although it is marketed as a night time lip product, it can be used during the day as well. Unfortunately, this product didn't quite live up to my expectations. I love the cherry scent and large size tin, however I didn't find it to be particularly hydrating or long lasting. When applied it feels more like an oil and it doesn't last very long on my lips. When it comes to lip balms/oils, I prefer products that will sit on my lips for a while. If you're someone who prefers an oil based product that isn't sticky and won't last too long on the lips, than you might enjoy it.

  1. Never tried the brand - the oil blend sounds great (lavender and lime - how interesting!) Always good to learn about Canadian brands.
