June Jacobs Spa Collection Green Tea and Cucumber Body Balm


RATING (out of 5 stars): 1.5 stars

COST: $50 for 7 ounces

THE SKINNY:The description on the website makes it sound like you are saving the planet by using June Jacobs Spa Collection Green Tea and Cucumber Body Balm over another product. Too bad it falls short of most of the other body lotions I have tried.

I had high hopes when I first opened the deluxe sample I got in the May Total Beauty Collection box because it smelled really fresh and light. It even moisturizes exceptionally well.

What I didn't like? It takes an insane amount of this product to coat your skin. It took about three times the amount of my normal daily lotion to even feel like I had used the product. I could not really figure out why either -- the texture was what you expect and not runny or gummy. When you pair this with the fact that it is expensive, there is not a lot of value.

There are a lot of nice, natural ingredients in this product and I wonder if that is the difference. I really, really wanted to like it.

June Jacobs Spa Collection Green Tea and Cucumber Body Balm just does not deliver and at $50 for a pretty small size, it really needs to.

KEEP OR TOSS: I'll use the sample, but I will not be buying any more of this product.

CHECK IT OUT: See all the natural ingredients and buy direct from June Jacobs online.
