STEP 3 As you glide Exfolimate along your face and body, check under the smooth metal edge for any lingering residue. To remove the dead skin and debris, simple run the tool under warm running water. Make sure you repeat this step once you’ve exfoliated your entire body to keep the tool clean for your next use.

Packaging
These come in a white cardboard box with company and product information. They are white plastic, rounded triangle shapes with a metal edge. They come with clear red plastic cords to hang. It comes with a leaflet of information.

Let me preface this by saying I have chronic nerve pain. Any pressure on my skin causes pain. Now with that said, this is incredibly exfoliating but also painful. xd You run this across your skin at a 90 degree angle but it requires pressure. On my face it’s very painful so I don’t really use the face tool much. It’s better on my legs though, still painful but not nearly as much as my face. This is wonderful to use before shaving. It gets off the excess dead skin and exfoliates your legs to make it easier to shave. I don’t use it every time I shave because of my chronic nerve pain, but I do use it sometimes. If I didn’t have that little issue I would make much more use of these because they do work really well. The face piece is a little too big to use around my nose like it says you can. That is the only real issue I have with these. They are easy to use and easy to clean, just rinse it under warm water. I always use soap/cleanser before using these and it surprises me to see the gunk on the blade. Glad it’s no longer on my body though.

Pamper yourself with the Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub. Pairing the nutrient-dense salt and minerals of the Dead Sea with nature’s gentlest and most effective moisturizers, this salt scrub will remove dead skin cells, promote healthy circulation and rejuvenate every inch of your skin. Ease muscle aches and pains and find relief from bothersome skin conditions, including eczema, acne, psoriasis and more.

Featuring Dead Sea salt, this scrub provides deep exfoliation for smoother, brighter and more radiant skin. It works to promote healthy blood circulation and cell regeneration to leave skin supple and refreshed. It reduces the signs of aging by preventing wrinkles, encouraging cell renewal and fading age spots. With an infusion of some of nature’s most effective moisturizers, the Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub will leave skin soft, supple and hydrated. Featuring a refreshing Ocean Breeze scent, the salt scrub is the perfect way to enjoy a luxurious spa treatment in the comfort of your home.

Dead Sea salt has been used in beauty treatments for thousands of years. Containing essential nutrients like magnesium, calcium, potassium, bromides and sodium, the Dead Sea salts effectively combat stress, fluid retention and the signs of aging. This nutrient-rich salt also provides relief from stiff joints and muscle pain. Dead Sea salts promote healthy blood circulation, allowing the skin cells to receive sufficient oxygen and nutrients. They are used to calm the nervous system, promote healthy lymphatic fluid balance for proper immune system function and replenish the trace minerals that are important for healthy, vibrant skin. When used as part of a salt scrub, Dead Sea salt provides deep exfoliation. It effectively whisks away dry, damaged or old skin cells to reveal brighter, more youthful skin.

Avocado oil contains an abundance of antioxidants, which are widely recognized for their ability to neutralize free radicals, protect skin from oxidation and combat the signs of aging. Avocado oil is also effective in protecting the skin from harmful UV rays, reducing the likelihood of sun damage, age spots and some skin disorders. It restores skin’s youthful appearance and elasticity, and provides rich nourishment and moisture. Avocado oil is packed with proteins and fats, which allow the skin to remain firm and supple. A highly effective moisturizer, this nutrient-rich oil is perfectly suited for all skin types.

Sweet Almond Oil provides deep and lasting moisture, even in the dryest weather conditions. It not only hydrates the skin, but it traps moisture to the skin, giving you the proper balance of moisture throughout the day. In addition to providing hydration, Sweet Almond Oil is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Containing the ideal balance calcium, potassium, magnesium, as well as Vitamins D and E, this oil absorbs into skin quickly. It provides protection from sun damage and is useful for treating wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots. Sweet Almond Oil is ideal for people with sensitive skin, or skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, as it has anti-inflammatory qualities. Its soothing, calming effect makes it the perfect ingredient in salt scrubs, as it deeply nourishes newly revealed skin.

Once called the “Plant of Immortality” by the ancient Egyptians, Aloe Vera has been used for centuries to enhance beauty and treat a variety of skin conditions. It works by releasing natural vitamins and enzymes onto the skin, penetrating deep to bring healing and moisture to every layer. Commonly used to treat sunburns and acne, Aloe Vera contains anti-inflammatory and healing properties. It provides lightweight, long-lasting moisture to the skin, leaving it feeling hydrated all day long. It restores skin’s elasticity and diminishes the appearance of fine lines, stretch marks, wrinkles and age spots. Aloe Vera effectively improves skin’s firmness and elasticity while correcting its pH balance.

Recognized as the oil that most closely resembles the sebum our bodies produce naturally, Jojoba Oil is valued for its ability to improve the health and appearance of skin. It regulates the amount of oil your skin produces, which is essential to avoiding breakouts and bouts of dryness. It enhances the elasticity and suppleness of skin by preventing water loss. Jojoba Oil absorbs quickly into the skin, making it the ideal age-fighter.

These ingredients work together to give you a spa-like treatment that deeply exfoliates, nourishes and moisturizes. The Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub is effective in treating a variety of skin concerns; from uncomfortable and embarrassing conditions like psoriasis and acne, to age-related concerns like age spots, sagging skin and wrinkles. With the nutrient-rich minerals of Dead Sea salt to gently remove old or damaged skin cells, to the lightweight hydration of some of the best natural moisturizers available, the Dead Sea Salt Scrub can help you achieve your best skin ever.

Where to buy
From Amazon – You get an 11 ounce jar for $12.95 USD.
From Adovia – You get an 11 ounce jar for $14.95 USD.

Directions
Keep this product away from the eyes, and avoid using on broken skin or open wounds. While in the bath or shower, gently massage 1-2 tablespoons of the Dead Sea Salt Scrub into your skin. Use a circular motion to work the salt scrub into your extremities, beginning near your heart and moving outward. After massaging the scrub into your skin, allow it to stay on your skin for 5 to 20 minutes. Rinse completely with cool water and pat with a towel to dry. Use the Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub 1-2 times a week.

Packaging
This comes in a clear plastic jar with a silver frosted plastic screw on lid. There is a clear plastic seal inside. The label has product and company information on it.

Scent and formula
This has a standard “Ocean Breeze” scent. It’s an oil based salt scrub, so it’s gritty and oily.

Ingredients
Dead Sea Sea Salt, Paraffinum Liquidum, Apricot (Prunus Armeniaca) Kernel Oil, Avocado (Persea Gratissima) Oil, Isopropyl Palmitate, Isopropyl Myristate, Sweet Almond (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) Oil, Fragrance, Propylene Glycol & Aloe Vera Gel & Jojoba (Buxus Chinensis) Extract & Ginseng (Panax Ginseng) Extract & Chamomile (Anthemis Nobilis) Extract & Papaya (Carica Papaya) Extract, Grape (Vitis Vinifera) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Algae Extract, BHT, Sesame (Sesamum Indicum) Oil.

This scrub was a flop for me. The scent gave me a headache and it didn’t smell that great to me. It’s leaked non-stop since I got it. I removed the seal to take photos and later that day noticed it was sitting in a puddle of oil. I double checked to make sure the lid was screwed on properly and even wiped around the rim to make sure there wasn’t any salt. It took me about a week to get around to using it. By the time I went to use it the front label had peeled off almost all the way. It was barely hanging on. I also noticed the back label was lifting up on both ends. It hasn’t gotten wet and was sitting in a puddle of oil. I opened it and it was considerably less blue and there wasn’t as much oil in it. I did use it a few times, but the smell was too much for me. The scrub itself is nice. It exfoliates well and left my skin soft and moisturized to the point that I didn’t need to use any body butter on my skin. I had to use some paper towels when I photographed the leakage because it was *still* leaking. I checked Amazon and noticed that other people were having the same leakage issue. Bummer. This scrub definitely isn’t for me. Between the scent and the leakage. Ugh. No thank you. If it had a better scent and better packaging I would actually really like it.

Surround yourself in the calming aroma of fresh eucalyptus. Clear your senses (and your sinuses!) with a cooling tingle that melts away the stress of the day. This pH-balanced face, body, and hair bar hydrates and refreshes skin while eucalyptus acts as a natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial cleanser.

Where to buy
From Wholly Hemp – A 4 ounce bar for $5.00 USD.

Directions
To use as shampoo, work into a lather and apply to hair, then rinse.

Packaging
I received a sample. It came in a clear, sealed baggie. It’s labeled with its name and the shop.

Scent and formula
It smells like castor soap and eucalyptus. It lathers decently, the bubbles are a little watery, the lather isn’t thick. The bar itself is kind of a pale ywllowy olive green color.

Ingredients
Saponified hemp-coconut-palm-sunflower oil, eucalyptus oil, rosemary extract.

I received this sample for free! Awhile ago Wholly Hemp offered free samples of soap on reddit and I jumped at the chance to try it! I received my sample in less than a week. It smells good. I got the Eucalyptus scent, but they offer many other scents. It smells like castor soap and eucalyptus. It lathers well. I used it on my body and as a shampoo. As a shampoo it cleansed really well, though it did dry my ends out. They are dry and damaged from bleaching. As a body soap I found that it dried my skin out. I already have dry skin that reacts oddly to things. I was expecting it to dry my skin, but hoping it wouldn’t. I ended up giving the sample to my daughter who loved it and used it up. For her it worked great and actually moisturized her skin! My skin is just weird. I have read lots of good things from other people about the soap. Even though it didn’t work for me think it’s a really good product and you should try it out and see if it works for you. :) Chances are you’ll probably like it!

Wholly Hemp has other skincare products! I want to try their deodorant and lip balms. When I am able to make an order in the future I am most likely going to order some soap for my kiddos. Also they have a subscription box full of goodies each month! Find them here. They’re on Facebook and Twitter! You can contact Wholly Hemp on their contact page here.

So at the end of May I made a little order from Purplecat Creatives for a couple of their soap whips! I got two in Queen of Hearts and Scintillating. Here is my little review. If I had money I would have bought Queen of Hearts ALL THE THINGS, cause ohmygod it is amazing. t.t

Official description
Our Soap Whips have delightful texture and lather, showcasing luxurious fragrances for an absolute bathtime treat.
Queen of Hearts – Blooming roses (which might have been painted red, who can say?) balanced with passionfruit jam tarts (I might have stolen one) woven together with the barest hint of vanilla flower.
Scintillating – Champagne bubbles, crystallized ginger and cardamom balanced with golden notes of amber.

Where to buy
From Purplecat Creatives website – 4 ounce jar for $7.00 USD or 8 ounce jar for $13.00.
From Etsy – 4 ounce jar for $7.00 USD or 8 ounce jar for $13.00. Shipping is calculated by the items in your basket.

Directions
Scoop out a dollop on a washcloth, bath poof or just use your hands. Lather up and enjoy!

Packaging
Product comes in a standard amber color plastic jar with a black screw on lid. Label is tan and black with a steampunk theme. The label is not waterproof and got all messed up after a few uses.

Scent and formula
Queen of Hearts is a passionfruit rose scent. So awesome. It’s not a foodie scent, I didn’t get a feel of tarts, just passionfruits. The vanilla is barely there for me. I was hoping Scintillating would smell more of cardammom, but I didn’t get much of it. It’s more of a fresh baked yummy smelling thing. xd I’m not good at describing scents. The formula in the jar is rather thick and slightly hard. It’s easy to scoop out. The lather is rich and velvety and it bubbles up quite well, especially when used with a bath poof!

Ingredients
Water, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sorbitol, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Sodium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Tetrasodium EDTA, sweet almond oil, fragrance. VEGAN

I love, love, love these soap whips. Queen of Hearts is my favorite scent but it’s no longer available. Yay Queen of Hearts has been added to the core line! t.t I’ve used these since the end of may and I have only gone through half of each jar. It doesn’t take much at all to get a lot of foam on a bath poof. These clean extremely well without drying out my already super dry skin. The scent barely lingers after you’ve washed off and disappears within the hour. I’ve had no skin reactions to these, which is amazing. I would highly recommend trying these soap whips. They’re available in lots of scents and there is also a mega jar size!

Do you think you’ll try these out? Have you tried any of these Soap Whips? What did you think? You can find lots of bath and body stuff from Purplecat Creatives, even artsy things! Eventually I’d like to pick up some more soap whips, some body butter and perhaps some solid perfume!

You can find Purplecat Creatives on their website here, or on Etsy here. You can find them on Facebook here and Twitter here. You can contact TDawn on her contact page here or through Etsy contact here.

Earlier this month I ordered a tube of Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream from RoseRoseShop. With that, came lots of samples. One of them was for the Happy Bath Sparkling Lemonade Shower Gel. I just ended up using it tonight and man I wish I had more. t.t

I immediately went to RoseRoseShop to find out they don’t have it. To Google! Google tells me that only one place has it right now. d= You can get it from Cosmetic Love. I’ve not ordered from Cosmetic Love before, but I have read positive shopping experiences online. I sent RoseRoseShop a message, hopefully they’re planning on carrying it in the future! Official Happy Bath website is here.

Official description
Orange extracts makes skin lively. Antioxidant effect of lemon extracts. Apple extracts give vitality to skin.

Where to get
From Cosmetic Love – 300mL pump dispenser for $15.53 USD. Shipping is free.

Directions
Get appropriate amount onto wet shower sponge and work up a rich lather. Massage over body and rinse with water.

Packaging
Standard foil sample packet. The label is really bright and fun. It’s a matte yellow and features a lemon slice in the name. The font is red, white and green.

Scent and formula
It seriously smells like carbonated lemonade. It smells amazing. The scent isn’t overpowering though. About an hour after showering I can faintly smell the lemon. It’s a clear gel much like any other shower gel. It was super bubbly and soft.

Ingredients
I can’t translate the packaging or the website. :(


The sample packet was way more than enough to clean my entire body, a few times over with my puff! This left my skin feeling soft and not dry at all. I can still smell a faint hint of the scent on my skin. I unfortunately can’t find ingredients at the moment. Hopefully in the future I can edit this with those!

Thursday Guest Post!

Hi there!  I’m rivercitylizzy from The Nature of Beauty, here at Luna’s gracious invitation to present a guest post for your amusement.  Mahalo, Luna!

First I have a secret for you all.  Don’t be afraid, you can come closer, it’s not THAT kine secret ;) Don’t tell Luna though, I don’t wanna get thwacked…you ready?  Here it is:  eternal procrastinator that I am, I had not one word of this post planned in advance.  In fact, until I got home from work Wednesday night (a whopping 11 hours after I began) I did not even know what topic I would be writing about.  Eek.  Then I opened up the mailbox and `auwe!  What did I find but my inspiration nestled snugly between junk mail and catalogs–the fragrances from Solstice Scents I had ordered just three days prior!

The universe, she takes good care of me.

 

Solstice Scents is a perennial favorite of mine since my introduction to the brand nearly a year ago.  There are several reasons for this: their branding is consistent, appealing to me (that is, the theme is one I identify with), and professional without loosing all traces of personalization (for example, the name of the scent on each bottle/sample vial is handwritten–legibly!); their scents are hauntingly beautiful, complex (with many wonderful layers of scent to discover throughout wear time), long-lasting, and unique; their packaging for full-size fragrances is both lovely and consistently easy to use (read: reliably dispenses product); and their price point is very reasonable ($2.50 for samples–including LE!–and $9-$15 regular price full sizes…which are 10 ml).  I particularly appreciate that the price of full size perfumes at Solstice Scents appears to be based on the number and quality of the ingredients used, rather than whether a scent is “general catalog” or “special/limited edition.”

With that background in mind I will say that when Angela, the owner/perfumer, announced the coming Valentine’s Collection on the Solstice Scents blog I felt some trepidation, as she confessed “We went cherry crazy this year (which is only slightly less insane than plum crazy haha).”  Cherry notes, they are not always my friends.  So I approached this collection with a heavy dose of skepticism.  This year’s offerings to St. Valentine included 4 new scents–Black Forest, Cherry Cordial, German Chocolate Cake, and Nightgown–plus two of their GC scents that fit the V-Day mood, Cherry Vanilla Amberosia (not a typo) and Violet Truffle, offered in their popular bath/body products (Ganache, a whipped body cream, and Burnishing Glace, a sprayable “dry” body/hair oil).

I was glad to see that despite the “cherry crazy” theme, half of the new offerings did not include cherry notes at all, and one of the cherry scents seemed like it had enough friends of my skin in the notes to work.  I forged ahead and purchased full sizes of Nightgown and Black Forest and requested a sample of German Chocolate Cake as my freebie at checkout.  I placed the order on Sunday, February 26 and as stated above my package arrived on Wednesday, February 29.  That’s going from FL to CA via USPS in THREE BUSINESS DAYS.  Awesome CS, Solstice Scents has it!

Okay on to the scents:

Black Forest– In the bottle, I can pick up the dark sweet cherry notes but they are not heavy on the bitter almond (which these accords can have) and are balanced by rich and spicy woods and a peek of bright pink pepper.  On the skin, though…oh, on the skin, Black Forest epitomizes what I love most about Solstice Scents: hour after hour of delight exploring the many layers of this scent.  For me, the woods and pepper take center stage almost immediately, with just a hint of the cherries, and I’m reminded of a type of crack seed that I favor called “cake olive” (hush, you, it’s an acquired taste!).  This is followed by the tobacco and hay, roughly 1/2-1 hour later and balanced with the prior notes.  The official description mentions “a humidor housing a very fine and exceedingly dark chocolate cherry pipe tobacco” and I have to say at this stage I agree–it is gorgeous and the tobacco note in Black Forest does not turn into something nasty and unmentionable on my skin.  At last, after several hours, it settles at last into its final stage of delicious, creamy vanilla-sweet-woodsy incense.  Dead sexy.

German Chocolate Cake (sample)– On cold sniff from the vial the sweet fluffy cocoa and a mouth-watering toasty coconut are evident, with no pecans in sight (scent? hm). As it warms up on the skin, this scent blossoms, and a lovely rich chocolate-vanilla comes forward balanced nicely with sweet shredded coconut and toasted praline pecans.  Gah, this is more gorgeous than I expected, not being biased toward foodie scents.  This scent is a very limited release (one of the components was unexpectedly discontinued by the supplier), and I’m hoping I can still lay hands on a full size.  Otherwise, I shall be hoarding this little vial.

Nightgown– From the bottle I get mostly sweet creamy white florals, not much of the vanilla/white chocolate which would lend a more foodie edge to the blend.  It is not the headache-inducing, hit-you-over-the-head kine “white floral” fragrance, however, even straight out of the bottle.  On the skin this opens up into a lush and seductive blend of tropical blooms (the actual thing, which is pretty amazing to me, having smelled both tuberose and tiare in real life), vanilla (a floral sort of vanilla, rather than a buttery/sugary one), and creamy/nutty white chocolate.  This for me is a nostalgic scent, taking me back nearly 10 years to my first lessons as a hula student and invoking the heady mix of creamy sweet haupia, cocoa butter melted into sun-kissed skin, and fresh tuberose leis and tiare hairpieces warmed by the exertions of a heartfelt performance.

Sweet dreams  :HBEAT:

So awhile ago Dawn from Troika Organics offered to send me some of her products to try including her deodorant that she had started making. I received some goodies on June 4th and was pleasantly surprised! She sent me a bottle of after shower oil, lip candy lip scrub, sugar scrub, deodorant and a sample container of sugar scrub in another scent. The after shower oil was scented with Candied Cotton a fruity blend of cotton candy, caramel, vanilla, stawberry, fig leaf, plums, mandarin, lemon drops and raspberry, ending with soft musk and woods at the base. The deodorant was scented with Dark Mist a A warm, refreshing, misty tropical rain scent. The full size scrub was scented with Carnival Candy Apples – juicy, plump, dripping red candy apples, my favorite scent of the bunch! And the mini scrub was scented with Sweet Thing – lemon sugar cupcakes! The lip candy lip scrub is unscented. I’ve ordered a bottle of lotion from her to try so I can do a full review, but I just want to gush about the deodorant for a moment. Some of you know what I’ve been through trying to find an all natural deodorant. Literally every natural deodorant I’ve tried both commercial and indie have made my underarms completely raw and they also break out in hives/bleeding sores, most times in under three hours. I literally have scars under my arms. :( Going without deodorant isn’t an option because by the end of the day my underarms are raw and sore. I’ve tried to switch over to all natural, well, everything due to my lyme disease. Most chemicals just aren’t tolerated by my body. I’m still amazing I can use nail polish and my hair hasn’t fallen out from bleaching it.

When I received the deodorant I can honestly say I wasn’t looking forward to trying it. I figured it would be like all the rest. So that night I showered and hesitantly put it on. To my surprise, hours later, my underarms weren’t even slightly red, let a lone raw. I was shocked and thrilled. I’ve been wearing it since with no issues and it’s actually made my underarms lighter, the scars themselves are even getting lighter! This is a holy grail item for me and I’m super happy about it. The only time I had an issue was when I shaved my underarms and put it on immediately after my shower. Oops. I forgot it had baking soda in it. Holy crap that burned. Lesson learned very quick. I’d also like to add that I don’t have to apply this deodorant EVERY day. I can actually go a couple of days without applying it. No stink, no issues! It’s freaking awesome.

The lip scrub is really awesome. It’s kind of a butter with sugar in it. I only wish it were flavored as the beeswax scent is a little overpowering, but it’s just a personal preference. It works great and feels awesome on the lips. The sugar scrubs have been wonderful. Normally after I use a sugar scrub I still have to apply some sort of moisturizer, however I haven’t had to with these. The sugar scrubs aren’t very abrasive either, they’re made with fine sugar instead of coarse sugar so you don’t have to worry about too much scrub! I’ve been using the after shower oil in a few different ways. The candied cotton scent smells lovely by the way. I’ve used it as an after shower oil all over my body, as a face moisturizer and I’ve added some to my bath. It’s been awesome for all three uses. I actually put it in Fumiko’s bath today and she loved it! It’s super moisturizing and soaks into the skin well.

All of her products that I’ve had the pleasure of trying are awesome, I can’t wait to try her lotion and am excited about writing an official review. I definitely recommend her products! Also Carnival Candy Apples is one of the most delicious apple scents I’ve ever smelled, I ordered my lotion in this scent. Dark Mist is also amazing and delicious, and well dark. Love it! Onto the pictures!

I had a gift card for Eden Fantasy and decided to use it to get some bath products I’d been wanting. So I made my order Wednesday night which was the 2nd and it arrived today, which is the 4th. Holy cow I didn’t expect it that fast, plus I got a free vibrator. :d I ordered the Sliquid Splash in grapefruit thyme, which smells amazing by the way. I also got the Naughty Bubbles by Booty Parlor which smells so pretty. And the Violet Moon Shimmer Cream by Sensuous Beauty which I’m sorry to say I can’t use. I put a little on my arm to test and it’s given me a horrible migraine. I really wanted to like it. :( But the smell reminds me of a natural bug bite salve, and there is the whole migraine thing. I can’t wait to try the Splash and the Naughty Bubbles though. <3

Anyways, pictures!
