These are some of my favorite posts - both to read and write - and I think they're great for final wrap-ups and mini reviews after using products for a good while, so I'm glad so many of you lovelies get it and feel the same. So, without further ado, here's what I finished up during March:
New Roots Organic Goji Seed Oil
I was given this at the CHFA trade show in the fall and was curious to see how all the goji berry hype would translate into an oil. I'm happy to say it's all good here. I've been big on mixing my own oil blends the last several months and I really liked including this one. It's hydrating but not heavy and has a very mild scent.
Nourish Almond Vanilla Body Wash* [Review]
Nourish's body washes are creamy, non-drying and just a delight to use. This was my first time trying the almond vanilla and it did not disappoint. I usually have several body washes on the go at a time, so this took me a while to finish up, but it smelled delicious and made me feel as though I was lathering up with delicious cake batter every time I used it.
Repurchase? Not right away, but yes! I stocked up on body wash during Nourish's Black Friday sale, so I've still got a couple other new-to-me scents here to try before I'll be buying any more.
Nourish Unscented Body Butter
Another fantastic Nourish product, the body butter is the perfect consistency and did a great job keeping my skin soft and hydrated during the winter. It's especially great for feet and on any super dry, itchy spots.
Kirk's Fragrance Free Original Coco Castile Soap
I decided to pick this up after noticing that the one constant across most of my favorite bar soaps is coconut oil. That said, while there's nothing wrong with this one - it's gentle and produces a good lather - I realize I like my soaps to have a little more pizzazz than this unscented basic. The price, at right around the $2 mark, is pretty hard to beat though.
Repurchase? Probably not.
Bath Petals Sicilian Blood Orange Shower Gel
I liked this shower gel at first, but at some point it began irritating and drying my skin out and got set aside. The last 1/4 or so ended up relegated to makeup brush washing and other cleaning around the house.
Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner [Review]
I really liked how this product worked as a refresher on second day curls, but I'm left waffling over the cost when my Beautiful Curls spray works equally well (although it doesn't smell quite as good) for 1/3 of the price.
Repurchase? Maybe one day, when I'm feeling flush.
Lucy Minerals Lucy Light Finishing Powder [Review]
This is a really great powder that's been a part of my everyday makeup routine for over a year now, regardless of what foundation I'm wearing. Be it a cream, liquid, or powder, this finishing powder sets it, helps it last longer, and blurs minor fine lines and imperfections.
Repurchase? Yup! It's very likely.
Crazy Rumors Cola Lip Balm [Review]
Initially I wasn't a fan of the cola flavor at all, so this lip balm ended up languishing forgotten in a drawer for a long time. Now that I'm making a concerted effort to use up any and all started lip balms, I dug it out to try again, and I have to say, the flavor's nowhere near as bad as I remembered! It still wasn't my favorite, but it was completely useable. Crazy Rumor's lip balm formula is always lovely, so I was glad to be able to make use of it.
Repurchase? Yes, in a different flavor.
Zuzu Luxe Onyx Mascara [Review]
With a couple brief exceptions, this is the mascara I've been using consistently for the last several years. It's not super dramatic, but it does the job without irritating my eyes or smudging or flaking.
Repurchase? Yes, I already have.
Silk Naturals Lovelace Blush (sample)
Peach blushes are always what I reach for first and Lovelace is gorgeous. It's a bright, vibrant peach, but Silk Naturals' sheer blush formula is super blendable, so it's still an easy color to wear. The color is supposed to be a clone of Nars Deepthroat.
Repurchase? Not sure. I love Silk Naturals, but my skin is funny with their blushes. Some days I'm completely fine wearing them and others they give me angry-looking red bumps and need to be washed off immediately. Which is sad because the colors are SO pretty.
