Product Reviews: Moksa Organics
I first discovered Moksa Organics just over a year ago, and I decided to treat myself to several additional products to review, because, you know…
I have a responsibility to the readers here. And I’m not ashamed to spoil myself.
Anyway, this company is clean, clean, clean—in ingredients, packaging, and business philosophy. Here are the products I’ve tried:
Organic Body Butters: I’ll start with these because the Kilimanjaro scent is unbelievable, and what first got me started on this brand. The jar says it’s Cocoa Vanilla, but to me it smells like a chocolate cake with lemon frosting. I cannot stop smelling it, and I’m very close to scooping it out of the jar with a spoon and eating it. I am a huge fan of body butters, and Moksa’s are among the best, especially since they are half the price of many other brands ($16). The texture is like frosting, and it doesn’t get overly shiny on the skin (I think the arrowroot powder helps with that). I also use Simply Unscented (just what it says) and Orange Ginger (lovely and invigorating, but I wish it had a little more ginger).
Organic Bar Soaps: At $6.50/bar, they seem expensive at first, but these are very large (6.5oz) bars. They are gorgeous to look at, and the scents are very subtle, much more subtle than the body butters. They are nice in the shower, but all the ones I’ve tried have little bits of herbs and such, and my preference is for a completely smooth texture. I love them for hand soap though, and they make handwashing a luxurious, creamy experience, lathering and cleaning while keeping skin soft. Kilimanjaro, Café Milan, Amazon Lemon, and Paynes Prairie all smell great. If Moksa ever makes an unscented soap bar, I will be all over it.
Organic Body Oil: Orange Ginger is the one I tried, and, like the body butter, it is more orange than ginger. The scent is subtle here, and though it’s nice and I’ll still keep using my bottle, the oil is a little too light for my “mature” skin.
If you want a very light and delicately scented body oil, however, I definitely recommend it ($18).
Bath Salts: I think these are a little expensive for the amount you get ($18), but they do come in really gorgeous and colorful bottles that are definitely something to save and reuse. Orange Ginger and Key Lime Vanilla have nice, medium-strength scent and a good ratio of salt to oil. I personally prefer a bath salt without oils (these have sweet almond and jojoba), but that’s mainly because I am too lazy for much tub-washing. As a sensitive skin sort, I have had a positive experience with the essential oil blends used in this brand. All in all, I really love Moksa, and if I ever am so fancy as to own a guest bathroom, I will fill it up with their products as a lovely treat for my guests.
