Reed and Gwen Review Clean Skincare: Bath Salts, Body Oil, Body Melt

Reed + Gwen Review

About Reed + Gwen

Reed + Gwen is one of the newest brands launched under the Avocado Green Brands umbrella. Avocado Green Brands is already a leader in the sustainable and eco-conscious mattress and bedding space. So it was a natural transition to bring those same qualities into the beauty space.

Like Avocado Green Brands, Reed + Gwen is dedicated to being as environmentally responsible as possible. They are Climate Neutral Certified, a Certified B Corp, and a member of 1% for the Planet.

Reed + Gwen Ingredients

Reed + Gwen products are plant-based skincare products. They are made with little to no water to be as clean and sustainable as possible. You WON’T find any parabens, sulfates, silicones, artificial fragrance, or hormone disruptors in their products. Reed + Gwen products are also vegan and cruelty-free!

The line includes a body melt, bath salts, and dry oil – everything you need for hydrated, glowing skin!

Snoozy Bath Soak with Magnesium Flakes

This aromatherapeutic bath soak is made up of Himalayan Sea Salts (to recharge skin), Magnesium Flakes (to calm and soothe muscles), and Lavender Oil (to calm). Add two scoops of the bath soak to water and relax for at least 20 minutes to get the full effect of the magnesium.

This is probably my favorite product from the line because it’s so pretty AND it smells soooo good. I’m very partial to lavender and rose scents so this is really the perfect blend for me. The pink salts mixed with dried flowers also looks really nice displayed in a glass jar in the bathroom (you know I’m all about aesthetics)! The bag is also HUGE so I feel like you really get your money’s worth. AND it includes a wooden scooper which is cute and functional. The only problem I had with this product is that it leaves flower pieces in the bath which you have to wipe up.

Supercharged Reishi Body Melt Review

The Body Melt starts off as a thick balm that melts into an oil on your skin. The main ingredients are Shea butter (to hydrate), hyaluronic acid (to help retain moisture), and reishi mushroom extract (for supple skin). Combined with an essential oil blend of lavender, sage, cedar, and citrus, this body melt is hydration and aromatherapy in one!

The body melt has a slightly gritty texture so I suggest rubbing it between your hands to warm it up and then massaging it onto your skin. The balm turns into a nice oil that’s perfect for targeting super dry spots.

Grounding Dry Body Oil

I looove a good body oil to lock in all the moisture! Reed + Gwen’s body oil is made from Organic Maracuja Oil, Organic Moringa Seed Oil, and Organic Avocado Oil to create a lightweight, fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula full of antioxidants! Like all the Reed + Gwen products it smells amazing! It’s an essential oil blend of lavender, sage, cedar, and citrus.

This is a pretty big bottle (6.5 fl oz) compared to other body oils that I have so I feel like you definitely get your money’s worth. Like the body melt, a little goes a long way so this product with last awhile too!

How to Use Reed + Gwen

For the ultimate spa experience I suggest using the bath soak then applying the body melt onto freshly dried skin. Follow that up with the body oil for luxuriously hydrated skin! Not only will your skin feel amazing but your whole body will too thanks to the aromatherapy element to these products. I find that using the body melt + body oil does leave my skin a little oily before it absorbs. That’s why I like to do this combo at night before I go to bed. That way I wake up with beautifully hydrated skin!
