[I kind of like to mix it up here and there so I have some of each.] Note: when you switch to less harsh shampoos, your scalp my produce more oil than necessary for a short period – because it’s used to overcompensating due to being stripped of it’s natural oils. So if you find your hair is a little oilier when making the switch, just stick it out – it should improve.
This stuff is no joke. Just a tiny bit will go a long way and last for days.
I have hardly missed a day of using this stuff since I’ve gotten it a couple of months ago. I am using it straight on my face as a night cream (but you could use it anywhere…it’s a multi-use cream.) It’s made of olive oil, bee pollen, royal jelly and some other healing ingredients. You only need to use a bit and it seems it will last a long time.
This can be used for both day & night. I’ve been really happy with it as a day cream (since I’m using Egyptian Magic at night.)
Maybe three times a week, I will use my Clarisonic and once in awhile I will combine it with this facial scrub, which has been awesome. For me, this routine makes a noticeable difference.
SO, I still LOVE washing my face with coconut oil morning and night…I wrote about that here
. I still no longer using a cleanser on my skin. But…I have found that it’s easier/faster to use the tiniest bit of cleanser to get my mascara off quickly. Coconut Oil will take off mascara…but I guess I just prefer the cleanser. And this cleanser by Acure is a great one.
Unrefined, organic Coconut Oil is a must have!!
This oil is super nourishing and smells so very nice. I *LOVE* using oils on my face at night or during the day (unless I’m putting make-up on straight away.) I love that this one has antioxidants and I’m just all around impressed with this face oil.
I use Argan oil on my face every once in awhile. I guess I love to mix things up. And I want to try using it in my hair.
I’ve been loving serums, too, and have been able to try a few that I really like. This brand is amazing. It’s 99% organic and made from cold-pressed, raw, unrefined oils. I’ve been really happy with it.
I actually don’t use eye creams as it’s just one more thing (do you? do you think it makes a difference?)
But Acure wanted to send this one and it does seem really nice.
So many lip balms seem to make my lips severely chapped, instead of the opposite (I think it might be related to gluten in the products or in the Vitamin E, which I have heard is sometimes extracted from wheat.) I have found a small handful of favorites, though, and this one for Badger is on that short list.
This one I actually didn’t test out prior. I’ve used it a few times and it’s seems fine so far…and the price is cheaper than many.
I heard from some guests at the Natural Beauty Night that they really love their new lipgloss. 🙂 It’s a really pretty gloss.
I actually have a mascara problem. There’s only one mascara on earth that doesn’t transfer to the skin underneath my eye during the day. And unfortunately, that mascara is not a natural one…so I’m still looking. But for the rest of you, I think this mascara might work. I tried it and it seems better than most and I like the way it applies.
. This is a great brand. They sent a variety of products that were different for each bag. I haven’t been able to try much yet, so maybe I can report back soon.
This is a super light weight moisturizer and is a great product for that level of coverage.
Looove these brands. They don’t leave me looking chalky white!
All natural, 100% certified organic. I love the woodsy smell (think cedar, rosemary, lemongrass, peppermint, and a cabin on a lake).
FOR THE BATH:
This stuff is heavenly. It’s scented with natural rose petals and essential oils. When I’m taking a bath, our entire apartment smells amazing (even Danny commented on how much he loved the way it smells).
Lavender is the perfect scent to have in the bath right before bed or after a stressful day as it’s properties are very calming. I loove using this in the bath, especially if I ever recognize I need to slow down and relax.
I’m more a fan of bar soaps (instead of gels). This one just smells so fresh to me. It’s also a decent price compared to many fancy soaps out there.
This brand is amazing. They carry lots of my favorite products. And this soap smells really great.
One of my favorite things to do is use body oil after a bath or shower.
Love what The Period Store is doing. They provide monthly care packages for women. For the event, they sent along mini care packages for each guest and it was a sampling of what you would get with your order: tea, meds, a beautiful little piece of artwork, and…a dark chocolate bar.
I keep this by my computer and love to use it as a hand balm. And the smell really is quite invigorating.
OK, that took forever!! But it’s worth it to share this stuff. I know how it is to buy products that end up not working out – it’s such a waste of money. So, I figured I’d do my best to find some good products that I could pass along. I hope you enjoy this list. And – – btw, there are many, many more products I’d like to tell you about based on my product testing…I’ll have more posts in the coming weeks. This was just a sampling. 🙂
