What are skin mints? Well, folks, it’s an original product sold at Kindred Spirit in Norfolk, Virginia. Kindred Spirit is more than a store, it’s a feeling. Kindred Spirit is located at 2354 E. Little Creek Road.

Skin mints are solid lotion “mints” made with a base consisting of beeswax, either olive oil or coconut oil, and Shea butter or cocoa butter. The choice is strictly left up to the customer.

In this article, I will discuss the unscented skin mint containing olive oil, Shea butter, and beeswax lotion.

For starters, olive oil has been used for over 5.000 years by those living along the Mediterranean Sea. Women in this area were known for having beautiful skin. Many claim their secret is the oil from the olive.

Olive oil will help to promote a smooth, radiant complexion. It helps to maintain elasticity of skin.

Besides the product containing olive oil, it also has Shea butter. Shea butter is one of the best moisturizing, anti-aging regenerating products to be found. For more information about Shea butter, check out the link listed in the recommended section.

Skin mints are bagged in a brightly colored three-pack of individual reseal-able bags allowing the consumer to use one at a time. There are also scented versions of skin mints, such as cocoa orange and peppermint.
