It is hard to believe that another year is about to close, and I thought that I would make a concerted effort to finish as many of my mostly used up beauty products before ringing in the new year. I didn't use quite as many things as I had hoped, but I was out-of-town a lot during November, and because I tend to travel quite light– it doesn't lend itself to finishing up lots of skincare and makeup. In fact, lately when I travel I tend to carry deluxe samples in order to avoid bulky travel bags.
RITUALS T'ai Chi White Lotus & Green Tea Foaming Shower Gel Sensation ($15.00 for 6.7 oz. from Amazon): The unique gel to foam technology not only makes it immensely fun to use, but it exceeds my every expectation of what a body cleansing gel should do. It cleans beautifully, smells glorious, and leaves the skin lusciously hydrated and soft. Furthermore, the rich dense foamy texture lends itself to being one seriously amazing shaving cream that cleanses, softens, and gives a seriously close shave. The combination of Green Tea and White Lotus makes this one of the most delectable scents imaginable. It is fresh, clean and utterly delightful! Purchase Again? I already opened another one!
L'Occitane Shea Butter Extra-Gentle Lavender Soap ($12.00 for 8.8 oz. from L'Occitane, Nordstrom, Sephora and QVC): This delectably scented lavender soap has a creamy, non-drying lather that is gentle, non-stripping and nourishing. Furthermore, it thoroughly cleanses without leaving a greasy film, and one bar lasts a very long time. I love using it in the shower, and have even used it in lieu of a shave cream to save my legs and underarms, and it does an fantastic job in this capacity. If you love lavender, then this is a soap that you will likely covet. Purchase Again? I have several other L'Occitane soaps to use first, but I love this lavender soap and would definitely use it again!
Salt By Hendrix Bath Time Baby Bath Salts ($32.00 for 5 1.06 oz. vials from Salt By Hendrix): Salt By Hendrix makes a wide assortment of beautiful bath and body products, and I have been obsessed with their body scrubs since I was first introduced to them. You really can't go wrong with any of their products, and this assortment of bath salts does not disappoint. Purchase Again? I definitely would, and I think that I have one somewhere in my closet.
Maple Holistics Silk 18 Conditioner ($ $9.75-$16.75 for 8oz.-16oz. from Maple Holistics and Maple Holistics Amazon Store): This is a lightweight, yet very nourishing conditioner that leaves hair manageable, hydrated, soft, frizz-free, smooth and shiny. It works exceedingly well for my dry curly hair, and the warm and creamy vanilla aroma is utterly delectable. Purchase Again? I already opened another bottle!Farmhouse Fresh Agave Nectar Ageless Body Oil ($23.00 for 4 oz. from Farmhouse Fresh and Dermstore): This lightweight, and fast absorbing, body oil is richly moisturizing and it leaves skin unbelievably soft, supple, hydrated and luminous. I apply it to freshly cleansed skin that is warm and slightly damp following a shower, and it melts into the skin immediately without leaving behind any sort of greasy residue. The aroma, which Farmhouse Fresh describes as a "heavenly light oat/milk scent" that is comparable to tiramisu, is so delectable that it smells positively edible (though I would not recommend trying it!). Purchase Again? I am working on another Farmhouse Fresh Body Oil right now but I would definitely buy this when I need another body oil.
Herbivore Pink Cloud Rosewater Moisture Cream ($48.00 for 1.7 oz. from Nordstrom, Sephora, The Detox Market, Birchbox, Credo Beauty and Revolve): Herbivore is 100% vegan and cruelty-free, iand they only use high quality healthy ingredients. Furthermore, they are PETA and Leaping Bunny Certified and they never purchase from suppliers who are not able to prove that they are also cruelty-free. When I first opened the lovely modern minimalist glass jar, I was immediately swept away by the intoxicating rosewater aroma. It is subtle, rather than overpowering, and it is so pleasant and calming. While it delights the senses, it simultaneously ignites one's sense of touch because it has a gorgeous light silky texture that immediately melts into the skin. Filled with ingredients such as Rosewater, Aloe Water, Sodium Hyaluronate, White Tea Extract, Kukui Oils Rice Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, and Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Oil– this luscious cream is lightweight, deeply nourishing, highly moisturizing and it leaves behind no greasy residue. Skin is left soft, smooth, supple and dewy. Furthermore, it softens the appearance of fine lines and creates the highly sought after bouncy skin texture that you are hearing so much about these days. Purchase Again? Yes, but it will be quite a while before I need to purchase another face cream!
