The Amazing Living Libations - review by Anna Rodgers

Check out the full Living Libations range here.

Once in a while there comes along a skin care company that is in a league of it's own. One that is unlike any other and quickly becomes a cult beauty brand. Living Libations is a perfect example of this.  There is simply nothing else like this brand on earth. And I can tell you this, if I had the funds to buy absolutely every single product from this range, I so would!

I'd been hearing lots about this unique range with the intriguing name.  It was much loved by many people in the raw food world for it's bio-dynamic, organic and raw ingredients and pretty sounding, almost poetic product names.  The creators, Nadine Artemis and Ron Obadia are two vibrant characters that you just won't forget after meeting or seeing speak on youtube.  Clearly lovers of poetry, spirituality and being at one with the universe, they have poured every inch of themselves into this brand.  It's more than just a range of products, it's a lifestyle and almost a 'beauty and health religion'.  Once you try these products you just won't be the same. I have tried countless brands over the years and have got a small amount of favorites, so it takes a lot to impress me these days but Living Libations has just blown me away. There's a whole heap of celebrities who love this range too, including Alanis Morisette - have a read here!

Living Libations have been featured in many glossy mag and even the New York Times.

It's hard to know where to begin with reviewing this brand except to say that there is SO much to say and I don't even think I can do it justice! With a large amount of one of a kind products, they have really thought of everything and much more, in fact they have created products for the whole family and also have a huge range of cosmetic and healthcare products for teeth and oral care. Nadine, the product formulator, knows how important oral care is for the entire body and set out to create a range that would replace ever going to see the dentist if used properly.  There's so much that can be done for teeth without ever needing extreme things done to them.

Living Libations are known for their organic perfumes, (which sound so unique!) delicious scented body oils and exquisite skincare.  Nadine really is an alchemist, and has formulated everything so beautifully with her special gifts of knowing what should go with what. Her knowledge is extensive of all different subjects. You can watch a short video at the bottom of this post. She is like a walking encyclopedia! Making your own range of products is not as easy as what it might appear, there's much more to making something smell good, its got to work and has to really make a difference to peoples health and skin. The range is extensive, they even have  a few products for kids. There's the gum product for kids Wild Child Healthy Gum drops.

There's essential oils for immunity and health and wellbeing in general. If I had owned a beauty salon or retreat, I would be using the entire Living Libations range! There's so much to offer people and there's also special things for massage and meditation. Their Chakra Set  contains 7 blends of essential oils for each of the 7 chakras.

Living Libations even sell their own raw chocolate which sounds absolutely incredible! Whilst its not your average cheap as chips chocolate bar, it does sound pretty spectacular, more like a medicine than just something yummy to eat, and it's worth trying at least once! Although people are saying once you try it, theres no going back, that this stuff's the best. It does sound like it! Its clear to see when you read the ingredients, that this chocolate really is SO good for you and can genuinely help you to stay healthy! And it's not just about the benefits of cacao but the added herbs, essential oils and superfoods. What better reason do you need to have a bit every day?

Living Libations have a real love for chocolate and that even spills over into their skin care! They have formulated a ChocolateKarat Serum which I just had to try - and wow was it totally drop your jaw amazing! I've never smelt anything like this before, the thought that came into my mind when testing it out was 'nectar of the gods'. Now I don't know what that is, or what it would smell like, but I bet this is pretty spot on. Honestly, it is something from heaven! Please click on the link above and go and have a read about this serum! I can't do it justice like they can. It was so beautiful to blend into the skin, I would always think wow if only I could have this all over the entire body as well! Now, even though it contains chocolate, it doesn't actually smell like chocolate, but don't let that disappoint you because what it does smell like is even better! My skin absolutely loved this serum too!

The other product I tried out from the range was also for the face, but this time it was a mask. Living Libations have an exfoliating product called Green Papaya and Lime AHA face mask. This is something you put on after cleansing the face. You can either leave on for 15 minutes then wash off, or leave on over night. The papaya and lime help to gently exfoliate the skin leaving it soft and smooth. I used to use very harsh exfoliants years ago so now try and use something very soft. This was perfect. Smelt very tropical and uplifting. Long lasting too as only  a tiny bit is needed for face neck and backs of hands.

Theres lots of things that jump out at me when reviewing the range, and I am very impressed by their sunscreen which I plan to get when weather is warmer.  I've never know a sunscreen to contain the sorts of ingredients thats in Living libations. Their Everybody Loves The Sunshine With Zinc has a pretty unique array of ingredients: Made with 20% uncoated zinc oxide and organic ingredients of: nourishing oils of the desert jojoba plant, virgin coconut crème, red raspberry seed, seabuckthorn berry, tamanu and regenerating essences of helichrysum, lavender, cape chamomile, ginger, geranium, palmarosa, rose otto, carrot, ginger, frankincense, turmeric, calendula, sandalwood and thyme linaloo.

I also experienced one of their oral care products, the Yogi Teeth Serum. This is a blend of essential oils that you put on your toothbrush or add to some water to make a mouthwash. It contains clove, cinnamon, neem and a few other oils that create a very antibacterial serum. This means that you can keep gum disease at bay and keep your breath fresh. It has a very spicy taste.  And makes your entire mouth feel oh so clean. I had a few problems with gum sensitivity for a while. Ever since I had Lola, my gums were more sensitive and sometimes would bleed in certain areas. After using the teeth serum thats totally gone! Some customers have said that its helped heal cavities as well!

I've only experienced such a small part of this exquisite range, but I already am totally in awe of it. Each and every single product has had so much thought and care go into their concoctions and judging by the glowing testimonials (found on their site) its no wonder that people are raving so much about this brand.  Whilst some of the products aren't inexpensive, its because they have sourced the best organic and biodynamic ingredients.
