Lotions/ Creams - Alaffia - Everyday Shea Moisturizing Body Lotion

Oct/28/2014

I have this in both the unscented (older packaging) and passion fruit (new packaging). The unscented one does smell a little unpleasant, but it honestly isn't as bad to my nose as some other people apparently find it. Also, I usually only use this lotion on my legs anyway, so I don't really smell it once I put on pants. The passion fruit scent smells of fruity bubblegum with a slight …Read more

Cleansers - Alaffia - Coconut Face Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/28/2014

I bought this to use in the shower, which actually works quite well for that purpose. It foams up very well despite the extra water/moisture from the shower and stays foamy when massaging into the skin. It does seem to cleanse the skin well, but I've never tried removing liquid foundation with it or anything.

I think this works well for most skin types. It doesn't …

Deodorants - Desert Essence - Tropical Breeze Deodorant

Oct/28/2014

Yet another natural deodorant that didn't work for me. In fact, this one seemed to amplify any BO that did occur and kept the odor there. I managed to use this up on days when I didn't have to leave the house, but even that was a struggle. This might work for some people--especially those that don't sweat or stink very much--but most people would probably end up stinking with this …Read more

I'm not a man, but I thought this eye cream was a good price for the size. It's about $10 for 0.5 fl oz. The ingredients are natural and the company doesn't test on animals. I entered the ingredients up above.

Their claims: "This hydrating eye cream will help prevent premature signs of aging. Our formula absorbs quickly to fight dark circles and smooth …

Nov/13/2013

I'm not a man, but I saw this natural cleanser and thought the price was really good. It's about $6 for 5 fl oz. The packaging claims that "coconut-derived surfactants gently clean; marine extracts soothe and moisturize." There's also no animal testing or other nasties with this brand. I entered the ingredients up above.

I got the "signature …

Lotions/ Creams - Nubian Heritage - Mango Butter Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/14/2012

This 13 fl oz "lotion" is really more of a cream than your average, watery lotion. It's about the texture of a thick ricotta out of the tube, but it thins out and starts to sink in quickly when rubbing into the skin. It leaves a little bit of a natural mango/shea/cocoa butter feel over the skin at first, but it's not greasy or sticky at all. This is my favorite body …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Body Lotion - Unscented Original

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/14/2012

I've used this lotion for a couple of years. I used to love this one in the warm/hot and humid months, because it was light and sank in quickly. It's also very reasonably priced.
<br>
However, the last bottle that I got says "new improved hydration" on it, and it's definitely a different formula. This stuff is unscented, but the ingredients now have a …

Deodorants - Unlisted Brand - Herban Cowboy - Unscented Maximum Protection Deodorant

Dec/14/2012

This is an aluminum, paraben, triclosan, alcohol and propylene glycol free deodorant. It's also 100% vegan and US made.The texture a kind of like a solid gel (if that makes sense), so it's not the best for protection against feeling sticky/sweaty. As far as odor protection…this didn't do it for me. It works better than most that I've tried, but this still left me with odor if …Read more

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Kaia House - Charcoal Detoxifying Cleanser

Dec/14/2012

It took me quite a few uses to find out the best way to apply this cleanser. It has a texture somewhere between an oil cleanser and a gel cleanser. It doesn't glide across the skin like most oil cleansers and it doesn't foam up like most gel cleansers. Too much water on the skin just thins this cleanser out and makes it run. So I found that having damp skin -- not wet! -- to start off …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - 100% Pure - Strawberry Nourishing Body Cream

Dec/14/2012

I got this in the clearance section at Ulta for only about $7 or so. The original price was $15 for an 8 oz tube. It says it's 100% natural and vegan, so I decided to try it.
<br>
First, the scent. This is a very "green" smelling strawberry, if you know what I mean. It's not a sweet, juicy type of strawberry that you would want to eat. It smells like an entire …
