Hawaiian Body Products Product Review

Disclaimer: Hawaiian Body Products provided me with free samples of this product to review and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product.*

As a graduation gift some years ago-my mother took me to Hawaii for two weeks. If you've ever been, you know it is absolutely GORGEOUS there. The people are friendly and beautiful, the weather is incredible and the sights and sounds you'll NEVER forget. The one thing that stands out is the scent and feel of the tropical island. When I received this to review it took me back to when I was in Hawaii.

The Ola Coconut Lime Lotion Mist is light and fragrant. When you think lotion mist you probably think watered down and runny. Not with this lotion mist. When sprayed into the palm of your hand, it is even in texture, medium foam consistency and very much a lotion. It smells fantastic and absorbs fairly quickly. Leaves your skin soft and smelling great.

The Ola Pineapple Lime Body Butter is ooh so yummy whipped goodness in a bar. I've used this on my hands after washing dishes or just washing my hands and leaves them very moisturized and the pineapple lime scent lingers making you literally smelling your hands every chance you get.

The Ola Jasmine Neroli Fragrance Stick not only smells heavenly, especially when applied to pressure points but contains soothing essential oils. Not sticky or greasy, it glides on smooth and the scent is absolutely refreshing.

The Coconut Lime Shampoo and Conditioner smells just like the lotion mist. While I did not use the shampoo yet, I did use the conditioner and let me tell you- you'd use it just because it smells so good! I used the conditioner when I co-washed my hair and it left it easy to manage and soft.

When I first opened the jar of  Passion Fruit Citrus Pacific Salt Scrub all jokes aside I really didn't want to get out of the shower. The winter is so harsh and the fragrance, hydrating sea salt and oils of this scrub makes you really relax and enjoy your bath time. It is a great boost to dreary winter days. And not to mention leaves your bathroom smelling like a tropical paradise.

I also received scent testers:

Tropical Smoothie smells like alcoholic goodness...seriously.
Ocean Essence smells spa like. Very soft and subtle.
Vanilla Ginger smells like a gingerbread cookie only sweeter.
Sandlewood Verbena smells woodsy yet feminine
Coffee smells like the liquid brown goodness called Kona Coffee. If you've ever had Kona coffee you know it's the best coffee EVER. I stalked every Hilo Hattie for their free coffee samples. YUMMY!

Glow: These products are made in Hawaii and they use all natural ingredients. Every bottle and container is a small piece of Hawaii on your bathroom counter. The fragrances aren't overbearing and smell natural. In no way they smell artificial and they LAST. The emollients in their products are hydrating and soothing. They leave your skin and hair fragrant and soft. The packaging is eco-friendly and their products are handmade.

Glare: Absolutely NO complaints

Overall Glam: I love this line! The people of Hawaii have always been known to really respect and honor their land and nature. I would not only purchase these products for myself but for gifts as well. I totally support a company who values quality and does their part to use organic and sustainably grown plants to create such great products. Please treat yourself!
