SEVA Balanced Gurufull disclosure: For the purpose of this Tried and True Green Product Review, I received one complimentary jar of SEVA Body Scrub.

During these cold winter months, many of us are trying to overcome a very common problem: dry skin. Well, body scrubs are one obvious solution — they gently remove dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling smooth and healthy. Balanced Guru now brings you their new SEVA Amazon Line, and I had the opportunity to try out the Rainforest Body Scrub.

Balanced Guru has partnered with Off the Mat Into the World through their SEVA Amazon challenge (offthematintotheworld.org) in order to take action and do their part in helping to save the Yasuni National Park in Ecuador, which is part of our Amazon Rainforest and one of the most diverse and plentiful ecosystems in the world.Balanced Guru Seva scrubNot only will 100 percent of the profits from the purchase go to saving this rich ecosystem, but the ingredients used to make this product are all Certified Organic — helping to make your skin smooth and happy. The body scrub has a spicy aroma, the Peppermint, Licorice, and Coffee scents seem to come out the strongest. The coffee and Dead Sea salt have done a great job of exfoliating my dry skin while the oils and butters have helped moisturize it (especially my feet and elbow areas). I’ve used this scrub twice this past week and have seen and felt a difference immediately. It’s really packed with healthy butters and essential oils.

Although the cost may be more on the pricey side, remember that you’re not only saving your skin, but an integral part of our ecosystem! It’s a great way to connect your values with your skincare regimen. 100% of the profits from their Rainforest Body Scrub, Body Oil and Body Balm are all donated to this cause.
