Saturday Trash Talk
Aloha lovelies… I thought I would start Trash talk with a lovely feminine intro so that we could then dive into…..
Life is getting in the way again, so I don’t have time for full empties, but I thought I’d share the best and worst of my recent beauty items.
Dermadeli Calm Chamomile Exfoliating Scrub: This was such a disappointment, especially since I love chamomile and I’ve been looking forward to using it since I got it in December. It was much too course for my face, and when I tried to use it on my body, it made a huge mess in my shower, no matter how carefully I rinsed. I didn’t even like the scent. I hate wasting, but when it quickly sprouted mold (I wasn’t good at keeping out the shower damp), I threw it away.
Missha All-Around Safe Block Waterproof Sun Milk: I love this! It feels hydrating without being greasy or making my face shiny. I swear it actually improves my complexion. It does have a bit of a white cast, but it doesn’t make me look ghostly until I reapply. I can wear it when I exercise and it stays put, where most waterproof sunscreens give me white sweat. If it were cheaper, I would wear it as my everyday sunscreen. As it is, I’m still going to by the full size, but I’ll save it for days I most want to feel pretty.
CVS Apricot Scrub:
This was my husband’s and I have been waiting till he was done with every last drop so I could finally switch it out for a natural option. We switched him over to a Garden of Wisdom/Acure solution.
Kari Gran Essential Serum: This came in a beauty heroes box. It smelled of lavender. I like it but I probably won’t repurchase because it didn’t absorb well into my skin. It is packed with lovely oils and I am not sure honestly why it didn’t work that well for me. The base oils should work well (Camellia Seed, rosehip, jojoba, avocado, and sunflower) for me but meh…
Vapour Lip Gloss: The Vapour line and I just do not play well together….. All of their products are just to “dewy” for me. This gloss came in a Good Being box. It tastes like castor oil (gross) and the heat this summer has caused it to separate.
Pacifica Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes: These were delightful. I am so obsessed with their deodorant wipes that I decided to try these and they were perfect for mid-day after sweating a bunch but not wanting to commit to a shower or face wash. Very gentle and no stinging around the eyes.
Andalou Naturals Brighten and Tighten Mask: This came in a Good Being box. I put it in the fridge. It smelled lovely . I didn’t notice any profound results but I think these areaffordablee at Whole Foods and so if I saw them I would repurchase. I like the ease and convenience of sheet masks
That’s all folks!
