Meet Mark: Body Care that Cares

There are many, many brands of body care items out on the market, but not many are Fair Trade Certified™ . Products which are Fair Trade Certified™, promote fair prices, safe working conditions and funds for community development for the millions of farmers who grow and source products like Mexican honey, Indian white tea, Peruvian cocoa butter and Egyptian hibiscus. By using products that are Fair Trade Certified™, you help support the future of the planet and the people living in it.

I was recently given the opportunity to try and review four products by mark. Appropriately named "mark. body care that cares". Each product is fragrance free and allergy tested. I personally do not care for un-scented products. But for many that are sensitive to fragrances, these products will be ideal. The good thing about fragrance-free products, is that it won't interfere with your perfumes. I used the products for a little over a week before posting this review. The following products are all formulated with Fair Trade Certified™ ingredients and antioxidants.

  • Do The Right Thing Smoothing Body Lotion SPF 15 with Fair Trade Certified™ Cocoa Butter, Honey, and Hibiscus - $12
  • I found the lotion to be light and soothing. It is easily absorbed and I LOVE that it contains sunscreen. Sunscreen is a daily must for me, I appreciate that this lotion leaves my skin hydrated but not oily. The lack of scent is the only thing that I do not like.
  • Fresh Approach Hydrating Body Cleanser with Fair Trade Certified™ Honey and White Tea - $10
  • I did not like this product as a body cleanser simply because it really does not lather up well. I used it as a facial cleanser though, and I loved it! It is light, gentle, and did not dry up my face. I also used it as a shave lotion, it worked well and did not clog up my razor.
  • The Big Fix 15-in-1 Big Benefits Balm with Fair Trade Certified™ Cocoa Butter, Olive Oil, and Vanilla - $10
  • Now this one, I absolutely LOVED! I used it on my heels & elbows. I also used it on my lips (after wiping it down!LOL) It also works well as a brow wax. All in one portable stick. Perfect for travel.
  • Relief Effort Total Comfort Body Creme with Fair Trade Certified™ Cocoa Butter, Olive Oil, and Chamomile - $14
  • This creme is wonderful as well. Again, no scent. It is thick but it is easily absorbed and keeps your skin hydrated. I live in sandals and my heels take a beating. After just 2 days of using this creme at night, my heels were smooth.
