HomemadeDuJour Review

I was sent 4 different products to review by Jessy the owner of HomemadeDuJour, an Artisanal Organic Skincare Line.  HomemadeDuJour offers body products, scrubs, and facial care.  It has been such a delight getting to know Jessy through social media.  Her passion for living a holistic lifestyle is so evident in her skincare products.  She is not only a mom but a business owner…my hat goes off to her!

The four products I had the pleasure of sampling were the Cocoa Lavender Organic Body Butter, Lemon Lavender Organic Sugar Scrub, Organic Eye Cream and Organic Face Cream.  All of which are filled with pure ingredients.  Jessy even lists all her ingredients on her website and is so transparent-which I love!  Also, all her products come in dark glass jars.  Not only does that help preserve the product but it doesn’t leach plastic into the product!

Ok, enough chit chat, let’s talk products.

Cocoa Lavender Organic Body Butter-

I’m typically an oil gal through and through but this body butter had me coming back for more!  I applied it right after my shower and my skin soaked it right up.  There wasn’t any greasy residue leftover.  I especially loved this for my feet-helped soften my callouses.  My skin felt so soft the next day.  When I applied it, I warmed it up in my hands first.  This helped to soften the butter so it would glide on.  Only 7 ingredients…so great!  I really enjoyed the lavender scent as well, not too strong but just enough.  This retails for $22.

Lemon Lavender Organic Sugar Scrub-

This sugar scrub is infused with real lavender and lemon throughout and smells so good.  It would literally wake me up in the morning.  It was a little too rough for my face but I loved it for my body.  My skin felt so revived and moisturized after using it.  This product was also great for my feet…haha I’m a big proponent of keeping up my feet!      Just like the body butter this has 7 pure ingredients.  Retails for $15.

Organic Eye Cream-

I’m pretty sure this eye cream will last me forever!  A little goes a long way.  It is a thicker eye cream then I’ve ever used before.  I had to warm it up with my fingers to help dab it on.  Always pat your eye cream, the skin is the thinnest around the eye.  Oh and use your ring finger, has the least muscles in it.  It really moisturized the eye area and when I woke up in the morning it wasn’t greasy.  It was too heavy to apply during the day…my makeup looked greasy under the eye area.  If you’re really dry underneath the eye area and are looking for a good eye moisturizer, this would be great.  Retails for $25

Organic Face Cream-

This organic facial cream, like most of HomemadeDujours line is for dry/mature skin types.  It is very moisturizing.  With ingredients like coconut oil, cacao butter and shea butter, you’re skin will be so hydrated.  Again, I’m an oil gal and have to have my serum for at night.  I applied my serum, waited 5 minutes for that to soak in and then I applied the facial cream.  I always recommend using an anti-aging serum first-your skin soaks in all the antioxidants, then apply the facial cream for added moisture.  My face was greasy when I went to bed but in the morning it was supple and moisturized.  If you have really dry, thirsty skin this would be perfect!  Pure ingredients as well in this one.  I did have to rub the cream in my hands to warm it up so it applied easier.  Retails for $45.

You can find all of these products and other HomemadeDujour products on Etsy here.  Jessy also offers custom orders, so if you don’t see what you like, just ask!  Follow HomemadeDujour on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.  Also, use code GURLGONEGREEN for 10% off minimum purchases of $15 or more.
