Cleanlogic Bath & Body Braille Products

Cleanlogic Welcomes Braille Packaging for the Visually Impaired

A few weeks ago, we were introduced to an app, Be My Eyes, whose purpose is to help the visually impaired. The app’s popularity (it boasts more vision-enabled people than blind), is so great we haven’t been called upon yet. All this just reminded me that although blind people may need help from time to time, they, like vision-abled people, cherish being independent. So when we see everyday products geared towards the visually impaired, allowing them to live a more independent life, how can you not celebrate that! This is why we’re happy to share the functional Braille packaging on Cleanlogic’s bath and body products.

Cleanlogic Bath & Body Braille Products

Through their parent company, IMS Trading USA, Cleanlogic has committed to incorporating functional Braille on its products where possible. Inspired by his mother who lost her sight as a child, IMS founder Isaac Shapiro began “Brands with Braille,” an effort to include braille on the packaging to help blind and visually impaired individuals lead more independent lives. Almost all the products in their bath and body range now feature Braille. You will find Cleanlogic’s sponges and brushes, charcoal-infused products, relaxation, and foot care products now boast Braille packaging.

Cleanlogic Bath & Body Braille Products

The functional Braille is placed on the hangtags of Cleanlogic’s bath sponges, bath brushes, and foot buffers/stones. It’s also placed directly on the packaging of their other products. While apps like Be My Eyes are a godsend, not everyone who is visually impaired has access to a smartphone; which is why brands like Cleanlogic adding braille to their packaging is extremely useful. Hopefully the future will see more brands joining Cleanlogic’s pioneering packaging.

What do you think of Cleanlogic’s braille packaging and Isaac Shapiro’s “Brands with Braille initiative? What brands or industries you’d want to see (no pun intended) implement this packaging? We’d love to hear your thoughts, please do so in the comments below.

Hotel Chocolat's Rabot 1745 Beauty Makes its US Debut

Hotel Chocolat’s Rabot 1745 Beauty Makes it’s US Debut

Most people are not familiar with the history of chocolate or what it’s made from. We are one of the lucky few who are privy to this information because we were lucky enough to grow up on a beautiful island that boasts a cocoa plantation, St. Lucia. Today, years after we left this beautiful island (which has topped many must-travel lists), we come full circle to the Hotel Chocolat to help welcome their skincare brand, Rabot 1745, to the US.

Hotel Chocolat's Rabot 1745 Beauty Makes it's US Debut

Inspired by the wild beauty of St. Lucia, Rabot 1745 is a natural and sustainable bath & body range that is luxurious yet affordable. Born on the Rabot Estate in St. Lucia, a cocoa plantation owned by British chocolatier and sustainable cocoa grower Hotel Chocolat, Rabot 1745 Beauty uses sensorial ingredients sourced from the sustainable cocoa farming harvested on the estate. These skincare products make a great attempt at capturing the essence of the estate in a bottle. There’s so much to love from this great skincare brand. First, you’ll love the ingredients, which consist of avocado, wild honey, raw cacao, rosemary, shea, and cocoa butter, and mango; and the following oils: jojoba oil, mango seed oil, apricot kernel oil, sweet almond oil, and avocado oil.

BODY SCRUBS

Rabot 1745’s gentle yet effective natural body scrubs are exactly what you need to exfoliate and polish your skin, revealing fresh and smooth skin. Choose their Coffee Body Scrub to revive your tired skin; the Sugar & Sour Orange Body Scrub to hydrate and leave your skin super smooth; the Salt & Lemongrass Body Scrub for a natural citrus exfoliation; and the Cacao, Almond & Coconut Three Shell Body Scrub to polish, exfoliate and moisturize your skin.

LIP SCRUBS AND BALMS

Natural lip scrubs and balms

We plan on using this moisturizing lip balm all winter long; we can’t wait to boast about how super soft our lips are. Your lips will appreciate being soothed, smooth and replenished thanks to these five balms and scrub. The Avocado & Lime Smile Reviver is a light exfoliating lip polish, while the Almond Chocolat, Wonder Balm, Coconut Chocolat, and Honey Chocolat lip balms keep your lips kissably soft.

HAND SCRUB

Skincare: Hand Scrub

Sometimes it’s not your body or lips that need a good exfoliation, your hands need love too. The Rabot 1745 Avocado & Sour Orange Hand Scrub is here to give that love thanks to its nourishing avocado and refreshing sour orange ingredients. The above are just some of the wonderful products available from Hotel Chocolat’s Rabot 1745. Check out photos of some of the other products below.

The complete range of products includes shower gels & scrubs, hand washes, natural body butters, lotions, and creams, bath and body oils, body masks, fragrances, and body mists, candles, and diffusers. We haven’t tried these products yet but we hope to soon when the official US launch happens.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

Finchberry Soaps – Uniquely Decadent Sensory Bath Experience

When you think of bath soaps, the last thing you think of is baked goods; but today we’re highlighting some deliciously aromatic and wonderfully stunning soaps that are actually baked. Feast your eyes on the beauty that is Finchberry Soaps. These decadent, handcrafted soaps feature natural, food-grade ingredients, a unique decadent appearance, and a lush gentle lather. The Finchberry soaps are not just a cleanser, they are gluten-free, vegan-friendly, made without any harsh chemical preservatives, and boast a sensory experience.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

All of the Finchberry soaps are handcrafted in their Northern Florida studio. A studio which is filled with piping bags, baking racks, ovens, and dough mixers. No surprise as Finchberry was started by Owner/Founder Ashley Robertson in her kitchen in Washington DC. It looks as much like a bakery as their soaps look like baked goods. As you can imagine, they smell absolutely incredible, some of them almost edible.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

We had the pleasure of experiencing the Soap by the Slice and wow. First of all, we didn’t start using it until a month after receiving the Best Seller’s Sampler Tin; not because we didn’t like it, but because we loved the smell of the soaps so much. We found ourselves repeatedly opening and closing the tin to indulge in the aromatic wonder of these beautiful soaps. Look at them, can you blame us, you can practically inhale the scents through the screen. These soaps will captivate you visually, aromatically, and touchably; your skin will absolutely love them.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

The Finchberry Soaps are available in several yummy scents. Our tin contained Cranberry Chutney, Grapes of Bath (sweet summer berries and lightly-frosted autumn grapes), Renegade Honey (honey and almond bitter), Tart me Up (raspberry, lemon, and real Moroccan rose buds), Sweetly Southern (wild honeysuckle), Spark (notes of orange, apple, grapefruit, peach and strawberry with just a touch of loganberry), Sweet Dreams (lavender and vanilla), and Darling (cherry blossom, sensual white lily and blushing violet petals blended with a hint of warm vanilla).

Of course, these beautiful, handcrafted soaps are not the only thing Finberry Soaps has to offer. You can also indulge in Fizzy Salt Soaks, Shimmer Body Washes, Hand Cremes, Sugar Scrub Cubes, Solid Perfumes, Soap Dishes (they have the cutest ones – we fell in love with the Victorian Iron Soap Dish), and so much more.

Finchberry Handcrafted Soaps

We promise you won’t be disappointed with these amazing bath products. Get to know all the Finchberry products by visiting www.finchberry.com.

Biggs & Featherbelle plant-based body care products

Biggs & Featherbelle: All-Natural, Plant-Based Body Care

We are not morning people. In fact, we can step into the shower and still be asleep; which is why we welcome invigorating scents to wake us up. Of course when it comes to your skincare, the most important isn’t scent, it’s how great it is for your skin. Luckily with the all-natural, plant-based body care, Biggs & Featherbelle, we get the best of both worlds. Get ready to invigorate your skin and your senses with the range of handmade soaps, bath fizzies, body butter, bath soaks, and body scrubs.

Created by sisters, Kelly and Kasey, Biggs & Featherbelle are made only with pure essential oils and plant-based ingredients. The soaps are handmade the old-fashioned way using cold processing to preserve the natural beneficial properties of the ingredients. We had the wonderful pleasure of trying out a few Biggs & Featherbelle products including the Barbados Sweet Orange & Grapefruit Soap, Bar-garita Key Lime & Sea Salt Soap, Lemon Bar Lemongrass & Shea Butter Soap, Lime & Sea Salt Body Scrub, Soul Kiss Sweet Bergamot lip balm, and Lemon Coconut whipped shea butter.

As soon as we opened the package, our entire apartment was engulfed in the amazing combination of sweet citrus scents. It was like having a scented candle burning. Talk about amazing aromatherapy! Of course, we couldn’t wait to indulge in the products and started with the Barbados Sweet Orange & Grapefruit Soap. This amazing cleansing soap is great for oily skin; it features sweet orange to nourish and balance excess oil, pink grapefruit to tone skin, and olive oil to moisturize.

We’re waiting until we’re done with the Barbados soap to use the other soaps; from what our skin has experienced (no dryness or tightness and it feels supple even before applying a moisturizer), we know we won’t be disappointed.

The Lime & Sea Salt Body Scrub is even more incredible than it sounds. It’s not teeming with oil, so there are no worries about possibly slipping in the shower. Its scent is vividly potent and you’ll love how your skin feels afterward. The multitasking Soul Kiss Sweet Bergamot lip balm is a dream. Not only does it moisturize, but it’s also great for reducing inflammation, soothing chapped and cracked lips, and heals, cools and helps prevent cold sores. We’ve never heard of a non-medical grade lip balm doing that!

Finally, the absolutely heavenly Lemon Coconut whipped shea butter. Raw shea butter is whipped into an almost fluffy, lightweight body butter that regenerates the skin, hydrates dry and damaged skin and hair. The lemon essential oil helps to tone and balance the skin.

We are in love with the all-natural, plant-based products from Biggs & Featherbelle. They have 20 soaps and we’re dying to try them all. Plus you can buy raw shea butter or cocoa butter in bulk.
