One fine morning in July I received an email with a subject line “Tasty giveaways for your blog”. I opened it thinking that it would be something related to food. It had nothing to do with cooking but the product is made with edible ingredients. How interesting is that?
Yume (pronounced you-may) Blush is an organic, botanical, and vegan line of body care. Their products are pure and edible. Yume Blush product can be used as body cream, body lotion, or massage oil. I was so curious to try my hands on this “all natural” products. I wrote back with a yes and the product arrived in a week. The PR lady sent me a package of four 1/2 ounce jars of apple raspberry, orange vanilla, lavender lemon and coconut chocolate. They have so many other delicious flavours like pineapple orange, coconut lime, lavender honey and chocolate raspberry. I have never been this curious to try and since they called it edible, I wanted to taste it for sure. I opened one tiny jar my hands reached first and immediately inhaled its natural fragrance. I gently massaged it on my lips. The aroma is sure to please your senses. I licked my lips and it tasted sweet. You definitely cann’t eat spoons of it but its way better in taste than your regular lip balms. For a person like me who loves everything organic and natural, this product is a keeper for sure. I rely on ghee (Indian clarified butter), sesame oil or coconut oil to moisterize my body. On a practical front it doesn’t work great on a working day. I cann’t imagine my outfit getting oily stains around. I use a lot of cocoa butter and lip balms at work. Imagine swallowing them in every sip of water you take or the meals like chips, burger, bagel you enjoy at lunch. Everytime you eat, you end up taking in little of your moisterizer into your tummy. You wouldn’t want that right? For those of you who use a lot of moisturizer, YUME BLUSH is for you. They are 100% natural, vegan and safe on the body. Yume Blush noursihes your skin and you can massage it through your skin. The founder of Yume Blush mentioned to me that one of the customer felt that their fingernails grew healthy and you can use this to takes off makeup perfectly.I have used Yume Blush’s flavour on lips, foot and fingers for the last two months. They are so smooth and luscious. My nails do look more healthy and less brittle now. I love all their flavours but if I had to pick one, that one would be Lavender Lemon. The smell of lavender and lemon reminds me of a beautiful garden in a tropical land.
