Jao Body Products - Giveaway and Review

One of the things I was really excited about when starting this blog, was being able to spotlight interesting companies who were really doing something innovative with their products.  Jao Limited is one of those companies. 

Jao Limited is a family company run by Gale and her father David Mayron (a former pharmaceutical chemist),  from a small town right outside of Philadelphia.  They  make eco-friendly, multi-use body products that are loaded with botanicals and have no dyes, petroleum or artificial fragrances.  They also make, and I am really not kidding, the best hand sanitizer I have ever used, Jao Hand Refresher.  But, to just talk about the Hand Refresher, would be doing the company a great disservice, because the other products in their line are all really worth checking out.
  
The folks over at Jao were nice enough to send me a selection of products to review and, even better, to give away to one of my lucky readers (details at the bottom of the review).

One product I tried was the Goe Oil, which is a combination of 28 plant, fruit and flower oils and butters.  My skin loved this product, which is lightweight but incredibly moisturizing at the same time. I used it for a few days and my skin never felt greasy or weighted down, just baby soft and it smelled great.  Since it is Unisex, I had my husband try it too, and his "it didn't make me want to wash my hands", is actually a ringing endorsement, considering skin lotions skev him out.  And his rough knuckles are noticeably softer.  This one is a keeper.



LipJao has SPF 15, Lysine, Calendula, Chamomile Oil extracts and 34% Shea Butter.  I am not sure which of those ingredients gave me such soft lips, but I am loving all of them.

Time for my favorite product I was given to review - the Jao Hand Refresher. 

  I am a mom with a 3-year old and I work in a large office.  I am basically living in a 24-hour germ farm, so I use a lot of hand sanitizers.  I have tried the range from expensive to dollar store, and I can honestly say the Hand Refresher is like nothing I had used before.  Apparently, this is not a secret, some of my favorite magazines like Allure, Elle, Philadelphia, Marie Claire and Travel & Leisure rave about it and for good reason.  The Refresher contains 65% ethyl alcohol and antiseptic essential oils like Lavender, Tea Tree and Eucalyptus.  It is the only sanitizer that I have ever used that didn't instantly dry out my hands but left them soft and moisturized.  It is like gem-killing aromatherapy.

But you don't have to take my word for it - you can enter to win a Daily Travel Pak ($30) includes:
- 1oz jar of Jao Serious Moisture™
- 2oz bottle of Jao Hand Refresher™
- LipJao™ lip balm


Here is how can you enter:

1) Head on over to Jao's website and browse their selection of great products.  Then come back here and leave me a comment about why you would like to win.

Good luck!
