Nobody likes dull, ashy, dry, problematic or lifeless looking skin. Especially during the winter. Yeah it may be covered up right now but baby when you take those layers off…don’t scare them! Do something about your winter skin. *the products in this post were sent to me for free by Moody Sisters in exchange for my honest opinion on their performance.
The title of this post fits perfectly with my latest review. But I can’t take credit for it. I got it from the subject line of an email I received from Moody Sisters. When they approached me about reviewing some of their products I thought, Wow! Any women that are willing to punch winter skin in the face must be pissed off enough to really do something effective about it 😀
That was late October, when I got that email. Since then I’ve been testing some products from the Moody Sisters skin care product line and I’m here to share the results of my experience.
Moody Sisters Skincare Review

My Observations – I love the way my products arrived. The shipping was fast and everything was neatly packed and presented well. My box also came with a few extra samples to try. Oh yeah!
So the products I received to test were the Mandarin Vanilla Body Scrub and the Rich Hand and Body Cream in Mandarin Vanilla.
The Mandarin Vanilla Body Scrub $28 worked great and provided excellent smoothness and moisture. I did find the grain of the sugar to be a little harder than I’m used to using on my body. But since scrubs aren’t something I’d use everyday, it’s not that big of a deal. I will likely stick to using this one on my legs and feet in the future though. The Mandarin and Vanilla scent is fresh and invigorating for those of you that love citrus blends.
The Mandarin Vanilla Rich Hand & Body Cream $24 is really nice. They weren’t kidding when they said this is perfect for winter skin. It’s rich in butters, oils and skin loving vitamins. It also has aloe vera juice in it, which is great for attracting moisture to the skin. I would recommend using this after your bath or shower. I would have preferred to try this in Mint Mocha, because me and cocoa are bae, but they were low on that particular scent at the time 🙁 Always a silver lining though, the Moody Sisters did send me a sample size to try and I’m sold!
My absolute favorite product of the bunch wasn’t full-sized. I fell in love with the Chai Whipped Lotion $14. It’s on the list for my next bath & body purchases. That lotion smells delicious! The aroma is just like a cup of fresh hot chai. The consistency of the lotion is light and penetrates pretty quickly, so it’s great to use anytime during your day.
I also received a sample of Lemongrass & Mint Body Serum $26. The scent is beautiful. Sort of reminds me of a lemon drop. The packaging says “a little goes a long way”, which it true. This sample was enough to moisturize my arms and legs and then some. I probably would buy this specifically for my hands or to give life to dry ankles. It penetrates leaving no oily or greasy feel whatsoever.
Overall I really enjoyed these products and the prices of the products are similar to what I’m used to spending on natural bath & beauty. The packaging/shipping was excellent. I’m not a big fan of the body scrub, because I can’t use it on my entire body. But I am SUPER impressed with the Chai whipped lotion and love how well it penetrates. That is a product I plan on buying in the future. The body cream tackles any and all dry skin issues, just as claimed. So if dry skin is an issue, you need this in your life. The body serum while a bit pricey imo, does absorb quickly and the Lemongrass & Mint scent is amazing. I’d buy it as a splurge item.
My combined grade for all of these natural skin care products is a B+
