natura brasil is beautiful skincare for all seasons

If you are not familiar with the skincare line natura Brasil, you certainly will be now. I am loving the skincare products, mainly their exfoliating soap and dry Body Oil. Of course, I always have to share my finding with my daughter and she is loving the restorative hair mask.

natura Brasil Skincare is not your average skincare and they make perfect gifts. Weather your skin is dry from the winter weather or dry from the hot summer sun, nutura Brasil has a skincare line that will satsify any skin concern any time of year.

The exfoliating soap is fabulous and both my husband and I use it. The Maracuja seeds found in the soap delivers a non abrasive, natural exfoliation and has a nice delicate fragrance. The exfoliating soaps are vegetable based soap made in the Amazon containing a blend of pure Brazilian oils including soothing Maracuja oil. This soap feels fabulous on your skin and the Vitamin E helps to keep your skin healthy and glowing.   Natura Brasil’s Expert Tip when using the soap:  Follow with Maracujá Triple Phase Shower Oil to lock in moisture.

One of my favorites from the Natura Brasil skincare line is the Dry Body Oil. I absolutely love it.  I have never used a dry oil that quickly absorbs into the skin and dries so fast. Simply spritz the oil onto your skin (adding extra oil to really dry skin) and gently rub in the oil. The oil drys so fast you never feel oily or greasy and your skin will feel so soft immediately. It’s my favorite and I love using it. The Dry Body Oil is formulated with nourishing castanha oil from Brazil and natural almond, olive and borage oils.

Natura Brasil’s Expert Tip: Massage into cuticles to instantly soften them and to leave nails with a healthy sheen.

My daughter tells me the MURUMURU Reconstructive Hair Mask is “Awesome”.  She has very thick hair and the mask adds a softness to it making her hair feel silky and shiny. You only apply a small amount to clean wet hair, massage in and leave on for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing out. Gone are the days when hair masks need 15 to 20 minutes or longer to work their magic.

MURUMURU Reconstructive Hair Mask  helps repair dry, damaged and over processed hair. It is also perfect for textured or curly hair. It is formulated with Brazilian murumuru butter to deeply penetrate and repair hair fibers and sealing split ends.

nutra Brasil Skincare is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, PABA, petroleum, triclosan, DEA and animal ingredients.

Natura’s mission, since 1969,  has been to help build a better world through our commitment to transparency, sustainability and well-being.

The oils are applied with the attached brush applicator. These amazing scents will linger on your hands for hours.
