Product Review: Chillessence "Be Great" Body Care Line

Chillessence is a new brand from the US dedicated to providing all-natural and eco-friendly products. Launched in April 2008, the company currently has a body care line and some jewelry collections. Chillessence is committed to making products without artificial, toxic or harmful ingredients. All the packaging and shipping use recycled and recyclable materials.

This is a review of their Body Lotion, Body Wash and Body Bar from Be Great body care line. The products from the line come with a light floral scent that is infused with a blend of essential oils.

Be Great Body Bar
The body bar is an all-natural cleanser free of parabens, petroleum, sodium, artificial colors or fragrances. It looks like a green translucent jade. If I place it by the natural light, it infuses the dull atmosphere with a zen-like radiant. The body bar has a clean floral scent with a faint hint of green note. The scent is clean and refreshing for the summer.

Be Great Body Bar Unpacked

My skin is constantly dry, even in the hot summer time. Body bar soap tends to leave my a dry and tight after-feel. Be Great Body Bar is 100 % vegetable-based, which does not make my skin feel dry. What I really like about this bar is it leaves my skin feeling
fresh and clean.

Be Great Body Wash
"be great" Body Wash has a liquidy-gel texture that feels lightweight on the skin. It is kept with the same floral scent from the "be great" line. It offers a good lather and cleanse the body effectively. After my shower, my skin feels soft and hydrated without the feeling of soapy residue. I found the Body Wash is quite moisturizing and gentle for my skin, making it a great everyday-use body wash for me.

Be Great Body Lotion
Just like the Body Bar and Body Wash, "be great" Body Lotion is blended with
organic aloe, lavender, lemon verbena, mandarin, orange extracts, olive and jojoba oils, shea butter, grape seed, green tea, Vitamins C and E for moisturization and protection against free radicals. The The Body Lotion has a light texture and gel-cream consistency. The lotion is quickly absorbed. It makes my skin feel soft and hydrated without greasy residue or sticky build-up.

Hello Diana,

Thank you for stopping by!

I have had good experiences with Chillessence products.

I noticed some people found the scent is a little overbearing if they apply "be great" Body Lotion all over the body. I, however, found the scent is quite clean and light. But I think scents are a matter of personal preference.

Thank you for posting your comment!

Organic, natural, whatever synonyms may it be always demand patronage. And i am willing to include a new brand of my fav natural products. This is the one thing that i can do to Mother Nature! :) Besides, natural products are great with my current acne treatment as well.
