Hello readers, it has been yet another 6 months. How’s the heat treating you?
I have been imaginably busy which things I’ll blog about soon! But one of ongoing projects is cleaning out/reorganizing my room. So I need to get rid of a ton of empty bottles! But have once again failed in actively keeping track of my experience with them. So once again, I will try once I get rid of these and have a designated space, and try to keep up with the next batch 😅
Nivea Breathable Lotion
I got this from Influenster awhile back, and I feel like when I used it then, it felt watery on application. The texture itself wasn’t too liquid. But it leaves skin feeling very satin with a nice scent (I got Tropical Breeze which I don’t think really matched but was still ok). I like the pump packaging (not sure if folks into recycling think it’s wasteful though 🤔). The only other issue may be sus ingredients. No parabens though.
Tree to Tub Soapberry for Face & Hair
I won a credit for some Tree to Tub items and was really impressed by just how natural they were! I think that my original review still stands. You can read it here.
Queen Helene Cocoa Butter
Unfortunately, I didn’t like this product. It was too watery as well and smelled like sunscreen. I bought it because it was more affordable, but it has methylparaben and dyes/colorants among other concerning ingredients.
I tried this Tom’s deodorant in effort to try something more natural and without aluminum. But I think I might as well try an anti-perspirant (but they cost more 😫). Other more affordable brands like Suave even offer aluminum-free deodorants now.
Blue Lizard Sunscreen
I only had a sample of this, but it’s honestly the first sunscreen I’ve used to leave a cast. However, they don’t use parabens or fragrances!
Air Wick Life Scents
Obviously more of a lifestyle item, I think you’re supposed to have some kind of plug-in so that it releases a scent into the air every so often. But we just used it as a spray. It is an aerosol though. I just included this because I absolutely love this Paradise Retreat scent that lists it’s made up of coconut, almond blossom, and cherry. If anyone knows anything that smells like it, let me know!
I did just throw away some empties I honestly can’t remember how they worked. So I should be done with these vague reviews in a post or two! Thanks for reading.
