Carina Organics Body Wash + Moisturizer Review

SWEET PEA CARINA ORGANICS REVIEW

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll recognize these pictures from my Christmas ‘haul’ post. Let’s just say I’m all about recycling (ba-dum-dum-tiss.) Anyway horrible jokes aside, I have fallen in LOVE with this brand. (Oh, and did I mention they’re from Vancouver, Canada?)

Carina Organics Moisturizing Body Wash ($9.99)

The body wash is certified Organic, Cruelty free, paraben free, Vegan, 100% biodegradable, Soy free, gluten free, and dye free therefore it comes out as a clear formula! What’s cleaner than clear?!

The ingredients

Filtered Aqua, Elaeis guineensis (palm) oil, Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Pinus banksiana (pine) extract, Matricaria chamomilla (chamomile) flower extract, Urtica dioca (nettle) leaf extract, Taraxacum officinale (dandelion) leaf extract, Trifolium pratense (clover) flower extract, Acetic Acid (Apple Cider Vinegar), Lathyrus odoratus (sweet pea) flower extract.

Who knew washing with dandelions would be so lovely?! After using this regularly for the past month the bottle isn’t even nearly at the halfway point and I can already tell you that this will be repurchased. It is great value for money; I currently have the 360 ml bottle but they also offer 1-litre and 4-litre options as well!

Carina Organics Hydrating Skin Cream ($9.99)

This skin cream is also Synthetic free, hypoallergenic, paraben free, cruelty free, vegan, soy free, 100% biodegradable, and dye free as well. It comes out of the bottle as a simple white formula… which smells great.

The ingredients

Aqua, Elaeis guineensis (palm) oil, Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, Pinus banksiana (pine) extract, Matricaria chamomilla (chamomile) flower extract extract, Urtica dioca (nettle) leaf extract, Taraxacum officinale (dandelion) leaf extract, Trifolium pratense (clover) flower extract, Acetic Acid (Apple Cider Vinegar), Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, Cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) seed oil, Lathyrus odoratus (sweet pea) flower extract.

A little goes a long way with this stuff; it is different from using other moisturizers because when you rub it onto your body it kind of- for lack of a better word– foams and becomes a white paste sort of (wow I’m horrible at this) BUT it does blend into your skin well, just don’t apply too much! Again, this formula comes in 250 ml, 1 litre, and 4 litre bottles.

TL;DR

If you’re able to get your hands on this I highly recommend trying it out! I absolutely love it. However, if you don’t like the scent of Sweet Pea the only other body wash option is Citrus or Unscented which kind of sucks.

  • I am sorry but I LMAO at your description on how body cream works. Haha! I am not trying to be rude but it really made me laugh. Both sounds really lovely and I had no idea they are from Vancouver! I’m on Vancouver Island so it’s close by.

  • I giggled at how you described the process of rubbing the product onto your body. Seriously. And it’s midnight so this shouldn’t be happening.

    And I’m sure if I have the correct scent in mind when I think about sweet pea but if it is what I think – I might just like it. I’m not sure. Unfortunately I’m a bit addicted to buying body creams and body butters and anything body related so this post isn’t that good for me but it really is at the same time!
