Sea Kelp? Yes, that slimy long, tangly stuff that you try to avoid the entire time you’re looking for a place to lay in the sand. Somehow, the guys at Nova Scotia Fisherman® ( http://www.novascotiafisherman.com/) have turned these slippery strands into a line of unbeatable products.
My roommate and I were grocery shopping at the Sobey’s on Elmwood Dr. in Moncton when we found these products on an end-cap by all the vitamins/ organic food. We were both reeled in by the East Coast logo and once we opened up the samples, we were pretty sure we had landed on a beach. There’s not really any other way to describe the scent of these products other than Hawaiian Tropic suncreen in the bay of Fundy.
I bought “Rescue Balm” and my roommate Melissa bought the lip balm, but I’m pretty sure we’ll have all 4 products next time we get groceries.
The “Rescue Balm” literally has nothing “Chemical-like” in it. The ingredients are olive oil, beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, nova scotia sea kelp, castor oil, rosehip oil, aloe, vitamin E, lavender, tea tree oil, rosemary, geranium, and chamomile oil. I have ridiculously sensitive skin, so I’m generally terrified to put anything new on, but since there was nothing unnatural in this, I put it on my face (yes, my face!!) before bed. I woke up with unbelievable smoother skin and no new breakouts!
The lip balm is probably the best marketed cosmetic I’ve seen. The attention to detail is awesome! The packaging reminded me of a Push Pop, but without the gooey sugar running through the bottom! If you look at the sample, you might be alarmed by it’s brown colour, but don’t worry! You’re lips stay pink, but turn super moisturized and smell like heaven!
Needless to say, I am hooked on Nova Scotia Fishermans line of gender-neutral products!
Are any of you?
