Not only is the Holistic Essentials toothpaste packed with natural remineralizing compounds…but it polishes, whitens, and tastes great. My family loves it!Dr. Thea Treahy-Geofreda
After using the Holistic Essentials face wash, years of sun damage disappeared after just a few weeks. The wash also leaves my skin feeling rehydrated.Dr. Brian Lanoue
I bought the vanilla whipped body butter, organic facial cleansing oil, eye serum and tinted lip balm. These products are fantastic and the lip balm and eye serum are quickly becoming my favorites. I am fairly particular with my lip balms and previously find that no other lip balm works except Burts Bee’s or a similar organic honey mint balm from Portland. Tried your Crimson heart lip balm and LOVED it. It’s very moisturizing – I’m certain I’ll need another tube of tinted and untinted soon.Jessica Galo
I’ve tried all of the Healthy Beginning Holistic Essentials products and I have found each of them to be awesome! I am especially impressed by the various facial oils that now make up my full cleansing and moisturizing regimen (Organic Facial Cleansing Oil, Moisturizing and Firming Day and Night Facial Oil, and Coffee Firming Under Eye Serum). I have tried so many products over the years for my combination oily and very sensitive skin. What has made these products stand out is that after I cleanse my face, my skin still retains enough natural oils that it feels lush and moisturized, so much so that I don’t have to add a moisturizer (other cleansers have always made my skin feel like it’s so dry that it’s cracking). In the morning, after a quick wash with just water, I use a small amount of the day and night facial oil and the under eye serum. They absorb right in and I put my other makeup products over top with no issues. My skin stays moisturized all day, and it doesn’t get nearly as oily throughout the day as it has using a regular soap/moisturizer combo. The chamomile oil is also instantly soothing (for my skin and my soul) and I am having fewer and fewer sensitive skin flare-ups. The lux body butter, perfectly tinted lip balm, and all-natural tooth paste are icing on the cake! These are really great products.Chantelle Caron
The Lavender Whipped Body Butter is fantastic. It smells great – I love the light lavender scent. The product goes on the skin very smoothly and absorbs. It did wonders to my dry spots and helped my skin during the dry winter months. Great product!An Minh Vu
I purchased the immune essential oil roller, whipped body butter and eczema cream and absolutely love them all! I use the eczema cream every day and it’s so nourishing. The body butter is luxurious and the essential oil roller smells amazing! Can’t wait to buy more stuff made by Iona! Thank you!Amy Yeung
Iona is very knowledgeable and personable. She even followed up on my order to tailor my facial cleansing oil!
I ordered the Reminerlizing Toothpaste, Coffee Firming Under Eye Serum, and the Organic Facial Oil….all excellent products. The oil is AMAZING! I have rosacea and was looking forward to using a cleaner with no chemicals.
This was my first time using an oil to clean, and was not disappointed in the least! It works so well, my skin is super clean AND my rosacea is calm! Thank you for this!
