The shade range is very expansive and caters to a wide variety of skin-tones and looks. You can buy the 12 set of all liquid lipsticks together, or individually, as well as their gorgeous glimmer shades. These liquid lipsticks are perfect for lip product addicts, since the color variety is unique and original. Additionally, they are great for individuals looking to experiment with lip color, as they come perfectly packaged together and provide amply opportunity to sport a different shade for each day of the week.

Each bottle contains handcrafted, organic skincare using ancestral beauty remedies from the founder's grandmother, botanicals, and unique sweet almond oil infusions.

The dry skin moisturizing facial oil is a special blend of organic almond, rosehip, and kukui nut oil infused with lavender, calendula, geranium, and marjoram. Not only does the formula smell lovely and luxurious, it moisturizes dry skin and helps restore youthfulness. Fine lines are plumped up and skin tone is made even. The oil is also light and absorbs easily into the skin. A little goes a long way.

Skinny & Co. is a Leaping Bunny certified company that prides itself in its utilization of innovative, wild harvested, single origin coconut oil. Its patented Nutralock System crafts the coconut oil under 100 degrees F, which leaves all of the raw nutrients intact. This process results in coconut oil with higher levels of medium chain fatty acids and allows the body to absorb the oil much easier, enhancing its effectiveness.

Skinny & Co.'s prime ingredient in all of its products is its high quality coconut oil. The line may be considered minimal, but every product is thoughtfully crafted and effective. The core collection consists of coconut oil, oil pulling mouth wash, whipped body butter, facial oil, lip balm, shampoo and soap bars, and sugar scrub. The body butter contains 100% raw coconut oil, organic almond oil, and a blend of essential oils. The butter melts and absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving behind super soft, pampered skin with a light coconut/minty scent. Using this product feels quite luxurious. The soap is also superior to other similar products. The coconut oil base is very moisturizing and also lathers into a rich foam. There are a variety of soap scents including lemongrass, peppermint, cinnamon, and green tea. The coffee fragrance contains actual coffee bean granules, which create a light exfoliant.

Coconut oil lovers, consumers that prefer minimal ingredients, and individuals looking for personal care products that are super moisturizing and do not leave the skin dry, make sure to check Skinny & Co. out.
