WHY I BOUGHT IT
I had just run out of my old cleanser and needed something to replace it. However, I was in a rush and grabbed this without reading the ingredients as well as I should have, and now I have regrets 😦 (more…)

Test Dummies: Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Shampoo

Shea Moisture Shampoo
WHY I BOUGHT IT:
I have naturally curly hair (that’s me on the left), I’m probably a 2c if you use the Naturally Curly classifications, but I tend to style my curl down. So, in an effort to embrace my natural texture I wanted to get more moisturizing hair products that were still natural/toxin-free. I had heard amazing things about Shea Moisture’s stuff from Sun Kiss Alba and when I recently took a trip to the states, I immediately went to pick this up…along with several other Shea Moisture items (more reviews coming soon!).

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: Meow Meow Tweet Lavendar Deodorant Cream

Meow Meow Tweet DeodorantWHY I BOUGHT IT:

I wasn’t enjoying the experience of using a different brand’s tea tree deodorant. I like tea tree oil, but found that it made my b.o. smell worse after using it. I went on to borrow my sisters Green Beaver Lavendar deodorant and loved that, but it wasn’t lasting all day. It went on like butter, incredibly soft and smelled great, but again – wasn’t lasting. So I went searching well.ca for something different, and since I’m a sucker for a deal, I bought this cream on sale (you’ll see a trend here with my purchases…)

PRICE:

$15.99 Canadian, but I think I got 20% off my purchase. So, pricier than most deodorants, but a little goes a long way. I’ve had mine since November and haven’t used half yet. It’s actually on sale right now until Feb 8, 2015, you can click here to go to the product. (more…)

Test Dummies: Andalou Naturals Meyer Lemon Creamy Cleanser

Image Source: Andalou.com

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.
