Every year we review products for the shoporganic.co.za website and also use many products in our personal capacities, naturally there are always some which stand out and 2014 was no exception. Usually the Shoporganic Top 5 list is given in no particular order, however, this time, I have to single out a number one spot product, as I am so completely in love with it!
1. AYA Balm
Our number one product for 2014 is AYA Balm, I used this product for so many things: lip balm, after-sun, on insect bites and scratches, as a night cream and even as a cuticle balm and exfoliator. This little bit of sunshine in a tin, definitely deserves to go far! Read my earlier review here: http://www.shoporganic.co.za/organic-product-reviews/274-aya-balm-review
2. Macassar restructuring fluid from Naturalmente
Next on the list is the Macassar restructuring fluid from Naturalmente, with this bit of magic in your pocket you’ll never have a bad hair day again! This did wonders on my curly hair in a tropical climate so it is now firmly on my ‘never be without it’ list!

3. Green Shake powder from Superfoods
Green Shake powder from Superfoods made a strong impression by providing me with green goodness on a 3 month trip in Central Africa. Fresh greens were sometimes hard to come by and the green shake powder really came in handy as a supplement. Green Shake powder does have a strong ‘green’ taste so I found mixing it with a juice or yoghurt to be a good option.

4.Victorian Garden Vanilla and Mango Salt scrub
I am an absolute soft touch when it comes to body products and pampering is very high on my list of priorities, so when Ecoshopper sent me a Victorian Garden Vanilla and Mango Salt scrub to review, I was very happy indeed! The product spoke for itself and I started finding reasons to shower in the middle of the day!

5. Down to Earth Revive Moisturiser
Finding a moisturiser which can nourish my sensitive skin and manage my sometimes oily t-panel can be quite a challenge and I was lucky enough to find one in the Down to Earth Revive Moisturiser. This locally made product will soon be an international contender in the natural beauty product market, read my review here: http://www.shoporganic.co.za/organic-product-reviews/302-down-to-earth-revive-moisturiser-review
