I generally look down on addictions...except in this instance. I'm addicted and I'm admitting it. I wish I had a big vat of this Smooth Body Oil by Kimberly Parry so I could just dive right on in. I have tried many body oils in my day, but I will officially put this one on the top of the list. This product is luxury in a (BPA-free) bottle.
First things first: I love the sweet and rich aroma of my Kimberly Parry Organics Lemongrass & Ylang Ylang body oil (there are three scents - but this one is hands-down my favorite....utterly feminine and entirely intoxicating). It is something I look forward to smelling then applying after each shower. There are natural scents that are "nice", "okay", "pleasant"...but this one just plain makes me happy! It is a genius mix of essential oils that not only works to feed your skin but to lift your mood as well.
The feel of this oil is unlike any that I have used. Unusually non-greasy for an oil and absorbs extremely fast. Most of all - it feels smooth on the skin (hence the name). It is the perfect weight for overall moisturizing during the hot months but also works great alone or as a base layer under lotion in the dry, cold months. Even the pump on the bottle is smooth - they've truly been true to the name on all points.
Kimberly Parry has created a luxurious line of products that are made to order in small batches, so they are as fresh as fresh can be. Some of the products are USDA Certified Organic and others are in the process of being certified. Using only ethically-sourced, organic (whenever possible), high-quality and highly potent ingredients, Kimberly Parry creates her products in small batches to ensure her products are potent and fresh. Kimberly Parry Organics is a great brand for those who only want the purest products on their skin.
We corresponded directly with Kimberly Parry (owner/founder/formulator) a couple months back after receiving the products because we had questions regarding which products were USDA Certified Organic and which ones were not, because it wasn't easy for us to identify on their website. For your reference, here is the breakdown:
These are the products that have been certified by the USDA (95% organic or greater):
And these are certified organic and approved to be listed as “Made with Organic Ingredients” (70-94%):
p.s. If you live in, or ever travel to Southern California, specifically Orange County, you may be very interested to know that Kimberly Parry Organics recently partnered with the incredibly luxurious Montage Spa & Resort in Laguna Beach to provide customized products for their spa services, starting with the Autumn blend containing Sage & Cinnamon. Each season will have a new customized blend (meaning that particular blend will not be available in any of her products currently sold on her site, nor at any other spa/boutique).
