Beyond Clean Beauty
When it comes to clean beauty, the industry standards are rather low. Like always, Avocado wanted to go above and beyond industry standards. Which is why Reed + Gwen is more than just “clean” their products have no parabens, sulfates, silicones, or other toxic, hormone-disrupting materials.
They even use far less water than many other skincare products. With other products being watered down, with Reed + Gwen you are getting more active ingredients that are designed to give you maximum benefits instead.
They also are cruelty free, avoiding testing on animals, and vegan! Verified vegan by Vegan Action, these products are made without any animal products and are ideal for all of our animal lovers out there. These are beauty products that you can feel good about purchasing.
Reed + Gwen Supercharged Reishi Body Melt
What happens when you combine adaptogenic Reishi mushrooms, hyaluronic acid, and vegan ceramides? It turns out you get a rich and softening body melt from Reed + Gwen! They recommend applying this balm to the skin on damp skin after a bath or shower.
The warm damp skin melts the balm into a silky smooth body oil. When your skin is damp and warm it is able to absorb and retain the moisture better. Hyaluronic acid is a great ingredient for attracting and retaining moisture, which works best when used on damp skin.
This is an incredible melt that they recommend using in the morning and at night. It gives you deeply nourished and moisturized skin that feels silky smooth. Your skin will look and feel hydrated and youthfully plumped. We highly recommend using after their bath soak right before bed for the best results. The natural essential oil blend of lavender, sage, cedar, and citrus is calming and perfect for falling asleep.
Snoozy Bath Soak With Magnesium Flakes
A nightly routine including a soothing bath is always a great addition for calming sleep. However, the Snoozy Bath Soak from Reed + Gwen will give your nightly bath a boost of sleepy benefits. It is made with Himalayan salt, magnesium flakes and a soothing lavender based scent making it ideal for a sleep inducing combination.
The aromatherapy of the lavender, rosewood & geranium pleasantly calm your nerves, the salt helps to draw out toxins and relaxes muscles and lowers inflammation. While the magnesium flakes dissolve in your bath water for a great way to top up on your magnesium levels topically. The benefits of healthy levels of magnesium are plentiful, including easing sore muscles as well as helping with sleep. Making this soak ideal for a bath before bedtime.
It is also very simple to use. Simply add the soak under the warm running water while you fill your bath tub up. Soak and rest for about 20 minutes for maximum benefits. The results offer many benefits including soothing muscles, recharged skin and tranquility.

Reed + Gwen Moisturizing Marula Body Scrub
A simple wash is not always enough when it comes to resurfacing the skin. A great scrub can remove impurities and dead skin in order to reveal soft healthy skin beneath. It can also help with circulation and to allow moisture to really absorb into the skin. Reed and Gwen by Avocado knew this when creating their Moisturizing Marula Body Scrub.
With moisture in mind, they created this scrub with a sugar base, this is less drying than salt based scrubs. This scrub is also packed full of moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, and Silky marula oil which helps to soothe inflammation and make the skin feel supple and soft. It also features rose clay to help purify, exfoliate and naturally absorb impurities.
This body scrub is great to use in the bath or the shower to help polish your skin. It is great right before bedtime as well since it offers a soothing blend of lavender and rosewood oil for a calming effect. Especially when you can top it off with a wonderful body moisturizer, like the dry body oil, to lock in that smooth and supple feel.
Grounding Dry Body Oil from Reed + Gwen
This body oil has a beautiful silky dry finish to it that quickly absorbs into the skin without any oily residue. Leaving your skin looking and feeling soothed and moisturized, but not greasy. It is a perfect pairing with the body scrub to help your skin lock in moisture and we love the fast absorbing formula of this product. Making it great right before bed and not feeling like your going to ruin your bedding.
This body oil is made with Avocado Oil which is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins A, D, and E. This is not simply moisturizing but truly enriching for healthy happy skin. It also uses maracuja oil that is rich in nutrients and vitamin C. As well as moringa oil that is known for its high antioxidant properties. Giving your skin a full dose of high quality moisturizers and nutrients.
The scent is the same soothing scent as the other products in this line. The lavender and rosewood blend is what they refer to as their grounding blend. We find it to be a soothing scent that has hints of lavender, citrus and geranium that make it a gorgeous aromatherapy to use before drifting off to sleep.
