Fave: Green Envee Organics

File Nov 15, 8 26 08 PMAs a Fox Valley female, I love taking advantage of the incredible boutiques on Third Street in downtown Geneva, Illinois.  I also love taking great care of my skin and body.  So, when “Green Envee Organics” opened up across from the courthouse – I was thrilled!

Green Envee founders “Bob and Tim” are cousins who grew up in Wisconsin.  According to the Green Envee website, Bob and Tim’s nature based upbringing caused “their desire to create a line that harnesses the power of nature, but also incorporates the science of beauty.”

File Nov 15, 8 24 25 PMMy family has been using Green Envee products for several years now and we are obsessed.   We got hooked after using the Body Scrubs.   The Body Scrubs come in many different beautiful scents but our favorite by far is “Balance” with organic lemongrass.  Jeff and I are huge fans of aroma and massage therapy and the Essential Oil line at Green Envee is the best of the best (try “Awake” with wild orange after a workout or “Stress Remedy” made with spruce and grapefruit after a long day).

File Nov 15, 8 25 33 PMWe eventually added the lotions to our daily routine and I am now a convert to the skin care line.  The “Pumpkin Pore-Fection Enzyme Peel with Clove + Nutmeg” is bananas.  I just picked up a jar of the “Refine Polishing Facial Scrub” with bamboo and chia and am so happy with it.  My skin feels incredible.

I go no where without my Citrus Bliss Lip Enhancing Balm with Lemongrass.  I’d rather give up Instagram than give up my lip balm (well, maybe….).

Green Envee offers products for the entire family including a lovely children’s line.  The children’s body wash and nut free lotion are now my favorite baby shower gifts.

In addition to being locally owned, made and operated, the best part about Green Envee fullsizeoutput_f0is that their products are safe for your family.  Unlike a lot of other synthetic skin + body care manufactures, Green Envee makes sure to use only “natural, organic products” in what they sell.  They proudly post their Toxic Nic It List on the website and in stores to show ingredients they will never use because “these are linked to cancer, reproductive issues, organ toxicity, and or severe skin irritation.”

In this day and age – more and more people are becoming sensitive to the food they are putting into their body.  However, it only makes sense that we should be mindful of what we are putting on our body as well.  The skin is one of the most powerful organs we have!  And it can absorb a lot of nasty stuff.

File Nov 15, 8 24 52 PMThe team members of Green Envee are top notch and know their product.  You can tell how passionate they are about what they sell.  I always learn something new.  The stores are beautiful to shop in – modern and chic.  Green Envee also offers classes where you can make your own scrubs and bath bombs.  With so many people making Geneva a “destination” – I can’t think of anything more fun that doing one of the Green Envee classes before you head down to Graham’s for an ice cream cone.

File Nov 15, 8 26 48 PMIf you are heading to Geneva – I strongly recommend heading to the Green Envee Organics boutique on Third Street.  Not local?  No worries.  All of their products can be ordered online and shipped to your doorstop.  I promise you will be delighted with whatever you purchase.
