Cocoon Apothecary Kahuna Collection Review
I've always loved the idea of syncing up all of my products with matching scents. Maybe it's my ocd, or maybe it's genius. I'm not sure. But when I discovered the Cocoon Apothecary Kahuna Collection, I had to give it a try.
With scents of lemongrass and ylang ylang, this brightening, but soothing scented line includes a body lotion, bubble bath, bath salts, and hand soap. I won't be reviewing the hand soap today, but let's dive into their bath products.
I'm really picky when it comes to body lotions. I find most of them are too watery, they don't sink in well, or they just don't do the job. But I love this lotion. It's light, but it really does moisturize my skin. It's not irritating, and while it has a scent, it's not overpowering, and instead of using fragrance oil, Cocoon Apothecary uses organic, healing essential oils.
Lemongrass is one of my favourite scents, and I think it pairs really well with ylang ylang in this lotion, because it's uplifting, but the ylang ylang has a soothing, calming scent that's really nice in the evening.
I usually steer clear of bubble baths because they're often made with terrible ingredients, and who wants to soak in chemicals all night? Not me. I went for this bubble bath because it's actually made with just five, mostly organic ingredients - coco glucoside (a soap), water, organic glycerin, and organic essential oils.
If you have sensitive skin, I recommend only using one or two capfuls for your bath. Otherwise, you can use two to three capfuls. While you won't get the stereotypical bubbles that are big and huge, I was pleasantly surprised to find this creates a lot of bubbles that lasted the whole hour I spent in the tub.
I love bath salts. While bubble bath is fun, bath salts are really where it's at. I always use several cups of epsom salts and a few handfuls of a bath salt like these. The simple ingredients are a dream for my sensitive skin - dead sea salt, epsom salt, and organic lemongrass and ylang ylang essential oils. The salts are rich in minerals and great for your skin; they're moisturizing, healing, and they reduce tension and relieve sore muscles. And the essential oils are just heavenly.
I have a bath twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays, because I find those days are my busiest, so I always need a little extra self care at night.
I light a candle, make a cup of chamomile tea and grab a book, and hop in the tub. I'll toss in several cups of plain epsom salts for lots of muscle and tension relief, a couple handfuls of the Kahuna Bath Salts, and one capful of the Kahuna Bubble Bath.
When I'm out of the tub, I towel off, and use the Kahuna Body Lotion from head to toe to moisturize my skin. I do this step nightly, as my dry skin could always use some moisture. And that's that - a simple, calming ritual fueled by mostly organic ingredients!
