Now that you know the details, let’s check out the products!
K Voss Gardenia Nourish Lotion received 2 oz. $14 (full size 4 oz. $28): I typically use balms or body oils to moisturize my skin, mainly because I feel they do a better job of keeping my skin hydrated, but I thought it would be fun to change it up and try a lotion. I’m a fan of gardenia scent, so that also enticed me. The lotion is made with avocado butter, grapeseed oil, shea butter and soy wax, so I was hoping for a more hydrating lotion than I’ve tried in the past. I liked the pleasant gardenia scent, but unfortunately, didn’t find the lotion very hydrating. I must say that I probably have drier skin than most, so if you have more normal skin, you may find the hydration level to be sufficient. The lotion is lightweight, creamy and absorbs rapidly into the skin leaving behind a soft gardenia scent. (VEGAN)
Shave with Benefits Shave Foam in Bergamot + Pink Grapefruit received 1.7 oz $14.99 (full size 5 oz. $21.99): I’m not big on shaving products, honestly because I don’t do much at-home shaving. I’m lucky enough to have pretty hairless legs and for other parts of my body, I tend to prefer sugaring or waxing. Having said that, this foam boasts a better ingredient list than convention shaving creams, so I may just give it a whirl or pass it on to my hubby, who will for sure use it. It is supposed to moisturize and improve the look of your skin while extending the life of your razor. Once you have finished shaving, it is suggested that you apply some foam to your razor to help extend blade life and provide a fantastic shave every time. Pretty interesting! I’d be curious to see how effective it is. My hubby is a pretty simple guy and even though its just one extra step–drying the blade and adding foam once you are done shaving–he is likely to find it annoying, unnecessary and just plain forget to do it. So, can’t be sure I’ll be able to attest to whether or not it extends blade life.
Lesser Evil Himalayan Pink Salt Organic Popcorn received 0.46 oz. $0.62 (full size 5 oz. $3.49): Let me start of by saying popcorn is my jam, I’m terribly addicted to it and I make no apologies about it. I’m a big fan of making my own popcorn, but when I’m short on time or just don’t feel like it, its nice to have pre-made options with great ingredients. Contrary to popular belief, popcorn can be a fairly healthy snack depending on what you top it with. Since I’m such a popcorn fan, I make sure that the popcorn I do eat is the good stuff, like this one by Lesser Evil. I discovered this brand a while back and so I was pleasantly surprised to find it in this month’s box. I can’t begin to tell you the countless brands (even the better ones) that use less than stellar oils to make their popcorn, so when I found Lesser Evil, it was like the popcorn gods had finally answered my prayers. They use coconut oil, ghee or avocado oil in all of their products—cue the angels rejoicing–and are made with very few, clean/simple ingredients that are gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, kosher and vegan! I think it’s pretty clear why I’m a big fan and I’m sure if you try them you will be too. They also make potato chips and their newest product release are paleo puffs which are made with cassava, coconut and sweet potato! Cheers to elevated snacking.
Pure Anada Natural Mascara in Black received full size 9g $14: Let me start off by saying I have the flimsiest, straight lashes on the planet! My lashes need all the help they can get, but it has been a struggle to find a mascara (natural or conventional) that keeps a curl, doesn’t smudge or clump. I’ve tried a ton, but was excited to try another in the hopes of finding the unicorn mascara that transforms my sad lashes into vava voom worthy. I like the formula, which is in between dry and wet. It’s creamy and not watery or thin which I really like because it applies more easily. I do have to say that it dries rather quickly so don’t wait too long before applying a second coat. I also like that it has a slightly curved wand which helps coat all the little hairs without much maneuvering. The pros: no smudging or flaking–bye bye raccoon eyes! The color is a bold black that adds dimension, volume and length. The formula is paraben, gluten and mercury free and didn’t cause any irritation to my eyes. I also have to add that on one occasion I ended up sleeping with the mascara on (mom problems) and woke up expecting total raccoon eyes, but nope very little smudging even after all night wear and I had absolutely no irritation. Lastly, it washes off fairly easily with cleanser and warm water. The cons: My lashes didn’t hold the curl after application. I prepped my lashes by curling them a few times before applying the mascara, but even so after application my lashes fell flat–straight as an arrow they went! Also, the mascara has a strange smell, nothing offensive, just noticeable when applying. I can’t quite put my finger on the smell but it’s a bit alcohol or chemical like. The smell doesn’t linger very long though.
Airbiotics Stabiotic Mist received 2 oz $14.99 (full size 8oz $29.99): I was really curious to try this mist because it is suppose to help with allergens, dust mites and odor control and uses really great ingredients unlike the conventional air fresheners out there. The spray can be used on fabric, toys, pets, bedding and even hands! The probiotics in the mist destroy the dust mites and allergen food source, making it difficult for them to survive and they eventually end up dying off. Pretty cool huh? Especially because it’s all non toxic. Airbiotics also has an all purpose cleanser which I’m interested in checking out too!
