Olea Essence Review and Giveaway!

I received a surprise package in the mail a few weeks ago with some fun treats in it to try out and review: Olea Essence products!!  Olea Essence is a natural skin care product line that is olive oil based, and has no perfumes, preservatives, artificial colors and does not test on animals.  The olive oil that is used in their products is imported directly from an olive oil mill in Israel.

Let me rave for a few minutes about why I love these products:

The Olive Oil Soap Scrub - this soap scrub has THE best smell of any soap scrub I have ever used.  Immediately when I opened it, I felt like I was using a product that would be found at a lush, expensive spa.  It smells a bit like lemon verbena, which is one of my favorite scents.    This soap scrub has gentle exfoliaters (from the olives) and leaves your skin soft and smelling amazing.  It is a 3-in-1 wash, scrub, and toner, so you can use it as a face wash too!

Body Milk - a lotion that also smells amazing; a cross between lemon, lavender, grapefruit and olive extracts. I have very dry skin right now due to the winter air and this left my skin feeling soft again.

Solid Hand Cream - This is great for my dry and cracked hands right now.  I put this on before I go to bed, and wake up with soft and healed hands again.

Face Cream- This reduces fine lines!  I felt like this product had a bit too much oil for my liking, but would be perfect for someone with dry skin.  However, the product says that it balances oily and dry skin, so you might love this product!

Lip Balm- The lip balm has become one of my favorite things to put on every day. It is soft, and not waxy feeling, but rather feels like you are putting silk on your lips.  Makes them beautiful and soft again!

Rehabilitation Skin Cream- I admit that I have not used this product yet, but it is for all types of skin conditions, including acne, burns, redness, dry & cracked heels (which I will be using it for), eye puffiness, eczema, sunburn, etc... It can be used even by babies and expectant mothers.

Foot Cream - I have been slathering this on my heels for a few nights now before bed and really can tell a difference.  My heels were cracked and are soft and smooth now.

Diaper Change Cream- My boys are not in diapers anymore, but last week I had a cold and had developed a very tender, red and sore area under my nose from blowing it so much.  I put this on before going to bed, and when I woke up, it was completely healed!  I would trust this product and feel very confident putting it on a baby's bottom (or wherever else you  might need it)!  :)

You can purchase these items (and many more from their line) and many Whole Foods stores in the L.A. area, or visit Olea Essence's website.


  1. Hey, I tweeted. The item I'd most like to try is the foot cream. I'm always looking for the magical one:-)

  2. yay! i've been using these products for about 6 months, and for the first time in four years (really!!!) my daughter has slept through the entire night, without waking to eczema leg itches!

  3. I think I would most like to try the rejuvinating cream because of my pregnant belly... By the way Jaime, I love your blog, it always makes me happy to read it. I wish I lived closer so I could call you up and then we could hang out...

  4. Foot cream!! I NEED it SO bad!! :)

  5. I would love to try the lip balm! It sounds wonderful and my lips need some therapy with the cold weather. They always get dry. I have posted your giveaway on Facebook too!

  6. I would like to try the cream for Ruthie. She struggles with eczema and dry skin and I wonder if this would help.
