Skincare - Body -California Baby - Calming Soothing & Healing Spray

This was just ok. I wasn't really impressed at all. It felt kinda greasy to me. It didn't really seem to sink in well. It also made my sunburn sting. Which it's suppose to make it feel better, not worse. I don't even think I used it all. I think I gave it away to my sister.

This is a pretty good natural (DEET-free) bug spray. It's a typical citronella based scent w/lemongrass & cedar also.
Conditioner -California Baby - Super Sensitive Conditioner

I have fairly short hair (below my ears & above my shoulders) and I really like this conditioner alot. I use it on my 6 yr old daughter's hair (below her shoulders) and it works well too. It's not too heavy & not to thin. I like that it doesn't have a scent, and it doesn't take much at all for either of our hair. This bottle has lasted us (I think) for a yr since we use so little. I think this is the best deal from CA Baby.

This worked pretty good from what I remember. I was thinking about tryin to find it again for my 6 yr old daughter's hair (I used it on mine before she was born). I just wish the scent was different or they had multipule scents to choose from.
Conditioner -California Baby - Calendula Conditioner

This was pretty good. The weird thing was, I think they forgot to put the essential oils in the batch I got b/c there was no smell at all. It smelled like Super Sensitive. Which is fine, b/c I think I like it better without the scent. I don't think I'll buy it again b/c I think I'm stickin with the Super Sensitive now.

This seems to be my least favorite scent by CA Baby. It moisturizes fine though. You just have to like the scent.

This moisturizes fine, but I like the calendula cream better. It seems to moisturize better. The scent is ok, a little strong though.
Scent is pretty good. Did what it's suppose to do. I think I like the unscented better though. I saw they just came out with a lavender & tangerine scent (I think I got that right) to relax the cranky & tired. I'd like to try that. I think they're reformulating the bodywashes too (haven't checked the other ones, just the Super Sensitive bodywash). See my review for the Super Sensitive to see what I mean.
Cleansers -California Baby - Super Sensitive Shampoo & Bodywash
sparkleandshine79 12/20/2011 5:40:00 AM
I've had a kinda love/hate relationship w/this over the yrs. I haven't found anything that's as available and doesn't irritate my skin. I know they reformulated this once before, and I looked at the bottle my boyfriend got the other day (the label has changed), and compared it to the old label. It looks like they moved some ingredients around a bit, took out some (salix alba (willow bark), tocopherol (vit. E) & capryloyl glycine and undecylenoyl glycine (preservative/amino acids), added hydrolyzed quinoa protein, xanthan gum USP, phytic acid (rice origin), gluconolactone (sourced from Non-GMO corn) and sodium benzoate. I think I might like this better than the last formula (wish they would state on bottle though that they reformulated, especially for people who might have a corn allergy, they are out there). I do like the new bottle design(more functional) & graphics (not so boring). I use this as a face wash, bodywash & shampoo. I think w/the reformulation that it's not as drying of a formula. Time will tell what I think of it though. It usually takes me a good month of tryin somethin to know for sure.
Lotions/ Creams -California Baby - Super sensitive everyday lotion
sparkleandshine79 12/20/2011 5:14:00 AM
I like that there's no scent added. I really don't use it on my body (or my daughter) anymore b/c I need something that moisturizes better. I find it works pretty good as a hand lotion for me though. Also, my boyfriend & I have used this (and the bodywash that goes w/it) after we've gotten tattoos, and it's healed them up beautifully & fast.

sparkleandshine79 12/20/2011 5:05:00 AM
I liked this b/c it clears up patches of irritated skin on me & my 6 yr old daughter pretty fast. We have sensitive skin, and haven't had a problem. I agree w/others who said the scent is kinda strong. It's also a little pricey for the amount you get, but I can get it easily at more than one store in my area, which is a plus.
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - evanhealy lavender facial tonic
sparkleandshine79 12/20/2011 5:00:00 AM
I got this in the Blue Face Care Kit. I liked the little glass bottle it was in, but that's about it. I did not like the smell. I don't how to describe it, but it didn't smell like lavender to me. Also, I think it's a little pricey.
Cleansers -evanhealy - Blue Lavender Cleansing Milk
sparkleandshine79 12/20/2011 4:50:00 AM
I got this in the Blue Face Care Kit. It didn't work well for me at all. I don't know if it just wasn't for my skin type (sensitive/combo) or what. It didn't seem like it cleaned my skin & I think it clogged my pores. It might be good for someone w/super dry skin though.
I thought this was a good product, but I think it's a little over priced. I got a sample in the Blue Face Care Kit I tried. I didn't think I'd buy this full sized b/c of price, but I've been thinkin about lately.
This was pretty good. The packaging sucked though on the one I bought. I think they must've had someone who wasn't payin attention in the quality control dept. The lid didn't screw on right on the jar. I looked at it and the groove on the jar was actually off. The product itself worked decently, and smelled good, like chamomile. It's one of the better eye creams I've used, but I think I might be able to find something I like better. I'm hoping maybe cheaper too.
