Skin Care with Colorado Aromatics

By Sara Baird

Excellent Sensory Experience with No Fuss

When I was asked to review products from Colorado Aromatics, including a knuckle balm, I hesitated. I can’t say that I diligently use beauty products but I only had to give my hands a quick glance to say sure. As a teacher in the midst of flu season with news of Covid-19 just emerging, my over-washed and sanitized hands were a mess and I was hoping for some relief.

Colorado Aromatics designs skincare products using herbs from their certified naturally grown farm to address the skincare needs caused by Colorado’s climate. They sent me the Knuckle Balm, Meadow Mist Face Cleaner, Razz Tightening Serum, and Springtide Gold Rejuvenating Face Cream to try out.

 

What is Special about Colorado Aromatics Products?

The products arrived wrapped in tissue paper with documents explaining the use and ingredients of each product. Dr. Cindy Jones, the founder of Colorado Aromatics, holds a PH.D. in biochemistry and is a self-taught herbalist. Besides her work formulating her own products, she does cosmetic microbiology and consults for other cosmetic companies. Her expertise and the care she puts into the formulation of her products is evident in the careful descriptions provided of each ingredient in the products.

 

How did they work?

Knuckle Balm

The Knuckle Balm, as anticipated, provided instant relief to my cracked cuticles and even a small cut from a cooking mishap. I thought back to how miserable my hands were while travelling through the high desert in Idaho and Oregon our last trip and wished I had it along with me then. I know the next time we are camping in an arid region I will want it along to provide relief to the inevitable cracked knuckles.

 

Facial Products

I enjoyed using the three face products daily. The Meadow Mist Face Cleanser provided a sensory experience that made me look forward to washing my face each day. The cleanser contains jojoba beads for exfoliation that feel rejuvenating on your face.

The sensory experience continues with the Razz Skin Tightening Serum, it made my skin instantly feel tighter within seconds of applying it. Since this is my first beauty product review I didn’t even consider taking a before and after picture but I definitely feel like the bags under my eyes have been reduced.

I appreciated the non-greasy feel of the Springtide Gold Face Cream, it quickly absorbed and left my skin ready for makeup within minutes. What I loved about all the products was the gentle and pleasant scent. It was mild and comforting.

 

Shampoo

I was nervous about agreeing to try the Angel Falls Conditioning Shampoo, I have very fine color-treated hair and often natural shampoos leave my hair limp and hard to manage. The shampoo contains conditioners and the information stated that many users don’t feel they need for conditioner on top of the shampoo. It is also color-safe since the beauty salons have been closed here, as in many places for a couple of months, I was relieved the shampoo did not strip what color was left in my hair. I first used the shampoo without conditioner as suggested and while my hair was clean and soft, I was not happy with the body. I used it again with my regular conditioner and had much better results. The results of the shampoo without conditioner were manageable and I would not hesitate to use the shampoo when I want to pack light while travelling.

 

Pros

  • Natural products with clear ingredient labels
  • Biodegradable products
  • Fantastic and soothing scents
  • Great relief for over-washed hands

 

Cons

  • Packaged in plastic containers

 

Do I Recommend Them?

 I really like the face products; they have a great feel and scent. The knuckle balm is a serious hand saver and I will continue to use it to address issues from the gym, outdoor work, and camping. I would be happy to use the shampoo when packing light but it won’t replace what I currently use just because of my super fine and finicky hair.

I appreciate that all the products are biodegradable and made with natural ingredients. I do wish they came in an alternative to plastic containers as I try to make choices that reduce the amount of plastic I use.

All of the products smelled amazing and kept my coming back to use them. Overall, I recommend the products for quality and the sensory experience they provide.

    Anything skincare is very important now. As well as looking after our health our skincare is just as important. I like these brand products. They are affordable too.

    The knuckle balm sounds great, especially at the moment. We are all washing our hands so much at the moment that we definitely need a product like this!

    I need the knuckle balm! It sounds like the perfect thing right now with so much extra hand washing going on because of the Coronavirus. I had never heard of this company before, but I will be visiting their site. Thanks for teaching me about a great company. These skincare items you mentioned would also make great and very useful gifts for friends and family. I already have a couple in mind to pick up the knuckle balm for if it works for me.

    I know this makes me sound like a diva, but skincare and makeup are still important to me when I hike and camp. I’d definitely try these all except the knuckle balm, my knuckles rarely ever get dry.

    Ooohh a knuckle balm is what I really need too, though this is the first I’m hearing of a product like that! Would love to give it a try and hope it saves my overwashed hands too.

    I like this line. I don’t use a lot of beauty products either but what I do use is natural! I’ve been looking for a brand that focuses on natural stuff! I def want to try the Razz Skin Tightening Serum! I haven’t seen a natural product out there that does ‘tightening’ action!

    I’d love to try the face products–I feel like all three of them would work well together. It’s so nice to see natural products with clear ingredient lists, instead of chemicals and words I’ve never heard of.

    I have a huge problem with dry skin in the winter months because of the heat in the house being on and drying out the air. Some of these Colorado Aromatics products sound like they would be perfect especially the knuckle balm.

      I never get discouraged about plastic packaging because I tend to recycle it. I would love to try this brand. I love everything that is organic and can help my skin.

    I didn’t now there is such a thing as Knuckle Balm! I love the packaging. It looks organic yet very modern. I hope to try them really soon. It sounds like my best friend would need them too.

    These seem extremely helpful products for face, hair and body. And I would need the Knuckle Balm immediately. I would love to use the shampoo too as it is natural and would not need to use a conditioner separately. The packaging looks attractive. The only drawback that I see is the plastic containers.

    I love that these products are all-natural. Of course, it would be better if they weren’t packaged in plastic, but that’s still pretty good!

    The knuckle balm sounds perfect for me! My cuticle area and my knuckles get extra dry and cracked. I have to try that!
