Press Sample - Kazam Natural Body Care Peppermint Foot Cooler Lotion
I was planning on doing a whole week of Cooling Products for the summer, but soon realized that a) an entire week of body and skin care products would bore me to death and b) Summer is almost over! Whiskey Tango Foxtrot People! Where did summer go? Well before the heat and sun and humidity leaves us I wanted to tell you about a super cool (literally and figuratively) new foot lotion I have been using.
Kazam Natural Body Care is a small boutique and on line e-tailer of all natural products for skin hair and body. They offer a wide range of products without the use of harsh chemicals, parabens, artificial preservatives and artificial fragrances. That’s right. When you read the ingredients on the products you buy, you don’t need a degree in Chemistry to figure out what everything is! The founder and creator, Majorie Moutari is an entrepreneur that has lived all over the world. Ms. Moutari received her training in natural personal care products, perfume and essential oil manufacturing in Europe, Africa and the United States, she also hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Pratt Institute in New York. She has over 10 years experience as a holistic nutrition and diet consultant, counseling patients on nutrition and health matters.
I have been using the Peppermint Foot Cooler Lotion for a few weeks now. I must say I had pretty low expectations for this lotion. First of all. I have yet to find a decent peppermint cooling lotion that actually moisturizes and cools my tired feet at the same time. I have tried several peppermint foot cooling lotions and most of them seem so watery it’s worthless using them. Secondly, "natural skincare" can be so hit or miss. I like the idea of natural products, but some definitions of “natural” still include all sorts of preservatives and fillers that I can’t even spell, let alone pronounce. Unlike the term “organic” which is regulated somewhat when concerning food and other products, the term “natural” isn’t. I mean Baby Powder is “natural” because Talc is a natural element. It’s not that hard to stretch the definition. THANKFULLY this Peppermint Foot Cooler Lotion has actual natural ingredients with NO fillers, and NO preservatives and no ingredient that requires me to look it up in google!
The lotion comes in a 8 ounce bottle. The lotion contains the following ingredients:
Purified Water, Glycerin, Aloe Leaf Juice, Cocoa Butter, Shea Nut Butter, Vitamin C, Honey, Lemon, Fennel, Sage and Yarrow Extracts, Jojoba, Citrus Seed Extract, Peppermint, Lemongrass, Tea Tree Oil.
Kazaam claims that The Peppermint Foot Cooler Lotion is:
“A natural cooling lotion for dry cracked feet. Excellent for tired sore achy feet, antibacterial and deodorizing properties. Awaken your tired feet and increase circulation.”
That’s pretty straight forward.
Oh but how does it work?
It works really well. My disdain for all things foot and peppermint have been shattered by the excellent performance of this lotion. It really moisturizes, it’s thick and soothing. It cools my feet and keeps the dry skin on my heels at bay. I sneak it up my calves and massage it in too. No greasy residue, just nicely moisturized and cool legs and feet. Remember to wash your hands after use or else your hands will be cooling off too, and you don’t want to rub your eye with this stuff on your hands. Get my drift? Good thing is, the lotion absorbs so quickly you can put on your flip flops and walk to the bathroom to wash your hands without slip sliding across the room!
Do you NEED this? YES! I really was impressed with how much I liked this lotion. I want to try the Lemongrass and Mint body scrub next. It sounds like pure summer goodness to me. I’m addicted to body scrubs and this scent combo sounds right up my alley.
