Joshua Tree Skin Care Products Review
Written by Kieara Lonning
Recreating outdoors is good for the soul, but it can be tough on your skin. When I need lip balm, sunscreen or a healing salve, I can guarantee you it will be a product from Joshua Tree Skin Care.
We need to be picky when putting products on our skin. After all, it is our largest organ! That's why Joshua Tree is my top choice. All of their products are made with organic ingredients and not a harsh chemical in sight! From their Reef Safe Sunscreen to their Arnica infused Recovery Lotion every product is safe to use, so you can focus on more important things...like bagging another peak or toeing the line at your next race!
My most used JTree product is the Mountain Mint Lip Balm. I have struggled with chapped lips all of my life and tried every brand of lip balm out there. This is the only one that has ever worked! I typically only need to apply it twice a day. Although if you see me in a social setting you'll probably catch me applying it several times because socializing makes me nervous and I always feel like I need to do something with my hands lol! The Mountain Mint Lip Balm contains Vitamin E. and Peppermint, so it is soothing and refreshing all at the same time. The other ingredients included are: Sunflower Seed Oil, Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, and Tea Tree Oil. All the good stuff that will nourish the skin on your lips and protect them while you're living your best life! And because their lip balm is SPF15 it is perfect for those days spent in the sun!
My second most used products are from their sunscreen line. From the easy to apply Sun Stick to the Reef Safe spray, JTree has your back...and every other exposed section of skin! Their sunscreens contain Zinc Oxide (active ingredient) to block UVA & UVB, and other ingredients like Aloe, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax and Vitamin E. to help your skin stay hydrated and healthy. You never have to worry about the harmful chemicals that can be found in other sunscreens.
Aside from the items I mentioned above, I also regularly use the following products: Recovery Lotion (after sport), Winter Stick (wind protection for exposed faces), Camp Soap (biodegradable, plant-based eco-soap), and Hiker's Salve (for strong, tough skin).
There is a seemingly endless list of great products from Joshua Tree Skin Care: Herbal Teas, Chalks, Eco-Soaps, Lotions, and most recently a line of CBD products! I encourage you to go visit their website, check them out on Instagram, and see what they have that will help you get after your goals. Climbers, cyclists, hikers, athletes...they have something for everyone and every outdoor activity!
