I was very fortunate to be sent a variety of lovely products from Zosimos Botanicals.
The winning product of this lot is the Pump shown of the Lime Foaming facial Wash. This is one of those products that you get addicted to. It only takes a half pump and you get a bit of foam, you rub it into your face and it is so soft, you just have to try it to get it. Then you rinse to this lime aroma that perks up the skin and leaves you going wow. 
The Expectant Arrival Argan Oil is smooth and works in well with a nice mildscent. It is not to oily and sure leaves the skin moist right now when things are getting dry with the heat on. 
DH likes the Cocoa Salt Scrub and keeps it for himself. It has a fantastic scent and sures leaves his skin soft and exfoliated.

This fluffy lather that leaves your face soft and clean, controlling oil without drying out the complexion. Fresh citrus scent is appealing to both men and women, making this wonderful for guest bathrooms as well as your own. Use Lime Foaming Face Wash for normal to oily skin. 
Packaging: 75 ml clear pump bottle with white foam top
Re-mineralize your skin with their Dead Sea Salt products! Reveal healthy skin through gentle exfoliation. Mineral-rich Dead Sea Salts help revitalize the skin, remove toxins from the body and relax sore muscles. This Salt Scrub is a body polish, not meant for use on the face.  Results of using salt scrub are apparent immediately. Available in Cocoa and Citrus.

Cocoa Salt Scrub smells like fresh baked brownies. Washes clean and leaves your skin beautifully polished. Made with Certified Organic Ingredients. Vegan.

Usage Instructions: Salt Scrub is a body polish, not meant for use on the face. When in the shower or bath, take a scoop in your hand and rub it on your arm, leg or torso. Avoid use on broken skin. Apply it when not under running water, but use water to rinse it off. The salt grains exfoliate and then dissolve in warm water. The oils will remain and sink in to moisturize - no need for a post-scrub moisturizer. Results of using salt scrub are apparent immediately. 
Packaging: Clear 8 oz. low profile jar
Apply to belly daily to prevent stretch marks and sooth skin as it expands to accommodate your expectant arrival! Also great for an after bath oil for super dry skin I have at this time of year. It is mild yet very dry to the touch after use. This is a product that absorbs well into the skin to leave a great moisturized feeling. But not Icky!!! For external use only
Zosimos Botanicals offers an exclusive line of handcrafted earth friendly
