Nourish Organic Coconut & Argan Body Wash
I've talked about Nourish's body washes many times before, so I'll keep it brief. The Coconut & Argan line isn't available online anymore, but if you can find it in stores, I'd recommend it. The body wash has more of a tropical/floral scent than a coconut one and was one of my favorites from Nourish. Any of the company's body washes are great though. They're very creamy and hydrating, but also produce a decent lather.
Repurchase? Eventually, yes. I've got a few other bottles that I picked up on Black Friday to use first.
Leap Organics Eucalyptus, Mint & Anise Body Wash [Review]
I enjoyed this, but it is intensely minty. It's great during the summer or after a sweaty workout, but in the colder months, it sometimes left me feeling chilled. I didn't notice any eucalyptus or anise in the scent, just a whole lot of peppermint.
Repurchase? Yes, but I want to try a different scent next.
Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Moisturizing Body Cream* [Review]
This falls kind of mid-way between a lotion and a body butter. It's a thicker, richer cream that provides a good boost of moisture to the skin, while still sinking in and absorbing really easily. The cream has a triple dose of sea buckthorn from the seed oil, fruit oil, and fruit pulp and I really liked having that extra nourishment in a body product. I also used this as a hand cream and it worked great for that as well.
Repurchase? Yes. I have other lotions/creams I want to work through first, but I would buy it again in the future.
Weleda Skin Food
I've been using this same tube of Skin Food for two or three years now and I noticed a couple months ago that it was expiring in April. If ever there was a product I was proud of using up, it's this right here. I made a concentrated effort to use it nearly every day and went through the last third of the tube just in the past month or so. I like Skin Food, but mostly in small doses like on my elbows, so it's just not something I go through very quickly.
Repurchase? I'm not sure. I think I've found other products I like slightly more, but I do have another (thankfully smaller) tube to use before I have to decide.
Rocky Mountain Soap Co. Vanilla Candy Cane Body Butter [Review]
I've never been a huge fan of lotion bars or solid body butters before, but I was really impressed with this one from Rocky Mountain Soap. I loved the Vanilla Candy Cane scent and the bar itself was creamier and less waxy than other similar products I've used, so it melted into the skin really easily. The flip side of that is that the bar melted away pretty quickly and I didn't feel like I got a ton of use out of it. This was just a mini size though - I imagine a full size would last a good bit longer.
Repurchase? Yes, I think so.
Ella's Botanicals Skin Soother Bar
Ella's Skin Soother is a soap I always go back to and one that's especially great in the winter. I pulled this out after my hands had been completely dried out by another bar soap and its gentle blend of olive oil, hemp oil, and oatmeal helped turn things around in no time.
Repurchase? Yes, definitely.
Crazy Rumors Plum & Peppermint Lip Balm
I find myself a little hot and cold on Crazy Rumors lip balms, mainly dependent on the individual scents. Plum & Peppermint was very fruity with just a touch of mint and I loved it. I used the entire tube - start to finish - in about three weeks, which is sort of crazy.
Repurchase? Yes, I've already picked up a couple different scents to try.
F. Miller Skincare Body Oil (sample)
I quite enjoyed this oil. It had a light feel and absorbed quickly, but really left my skin feeling nourished. The scent was nice enough too, although not necessarily a standout for me - a mix of earthy and citrus notes from neroli, bergamot, grapefruit, frankincense, and palmarosa essential oils.
Repurchase? Probably not, just because of how pricey it is. I'm not really one to spend a lot on body oils.
Earthbody Dream Body Oil* (sample)
Another body oil hit, this one courtesy of a Petit Vour box several months back. Dream is a little thicker and richer, compared to the F. Miller one, but I enjoyed it as well. Earthbody's skincare is inspired by Ayurvedic principals and I love that the body oils are made not only with carrier and essential oils, but also infused with herbs.
Repurchase? Yes. I'm curious to try a couple other scents too.
Green People Intensive Repair Conditioner (sample)
I've used multiple samples of this conditioner and there are things I really like about it. It has a moderately thin consistency, making it very easy to work through the hair and it leaves my hair feeling very silky and soft. It also does a good job minimizing frizz and leaves my curls looking nicely defined. I'm not crazy about the rose geranium scent though, which is what has always stopped me from purchasing a full size.
Repurchase? Probably not.
Suki Transformative Cleansing Clay (sample)
I loved this as a mask when I was first introduced to it a couple years ago, but this time around, I wasn't as impressed. I'm not sure if my skin has changed or if I've just found other masks that work better for me, but I wasn't wow-ed.
Repurchase? I doubt it.
And that's it! I'm glad I decided to keep count this year as I'm really enjoying keeping an eye on the numbers and being able to see what products I consistently get through. (Apparently I use a lot of lip balm!) It's also nice to know I'm making progress on my samples, even when it may not seem like it to look at how many still remain.
Skincare: 1 (Lip Balms: 1)
Skin/Body/Hair Samples: 5
Makeup Samples: 0
Skincare: 11 (Lip Balms: 4)
Skin/Body/Hair Samples: 24 (I realized I hadn't been counting items from my Sample Stash posts,
which is why this number jumped so much this month.)
