Test Dummies: Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Coconut Magic Lotion

Dr. Bronners Lotion

WHY I BOUGHT IT
I was in the habit of using coconut oil to moisturize after I showered, but sometimes that can get a bit oily/takes a while to absorb. I thought I’d try something new and really like Dr. Bronner’s products, so gave this lotion a shot.

PRICE
$13.99 for 237 ml

MY THOUGHTS
I really like this lotion, the consistency is more of a mix between an oil and a cream. It’s kind of runny, but absorbs quickly and I don’t need that much to moisturize my whole bod (4-5 pumps). I also really like how smooth it makes my skin feel after using it and doesn’t have a heavy scent. (more…)

Test Dummies: Andalou Naturals Meyer Lemon Creamy Cleanser

WHY I BOUGHT IT:
My skin is a bit on the dry side- even drier when it’s winter and the fact that it was creamy instead of a typical foam, didn’t have any fragrance/parfum/perfume (I’m trying to cut all of that out of all my products) and had Manuka honey as an ingredient appealed to me. It was also on sale…

PRICE:
Regular price it’s $12.95, but I bought my bottle from a local grocery store on sale for $9.99.
