    Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

    An Immediate Skin Fix

    I have been using this mask since I first got blemishes at puberty, and it is amazing no matter what my skin issue is. I mostly use it now when my skin feels extra oily or is breaking out, and it gets it under control. It also has a soothing and cooling effect that makes me feel totally refreshed. You can use it as a spot treatment too. I put it on my T-zone during breakouts, put a towel on my pillow, and sleep in it. By morning I'm totally cleared up. The only drawback, though I don't mind the smell, is that it lingers long after you rinse the masque off.

  • Yes To Tomatoes Truly Terrific Body Butter

    Yes To Tomatoes Truly Terrific Body Butter

    Truly Smelly but Otherwise Terrific

    I love almost everything about the Yes to Tomatoes body butter- it's super moisturizing without being sticky or heavy, and it lasts a long time. It's great for slathering all over after a shower, and it is totally natural, with nothing that could harm my body or the environment. In fact, it would be perfect except for one thing: the SMELL! It doesn't claim to have any smell, but it's definitely not unscented. When I tried really hard to like it, it almost reminded me of cinnamon. But then I realized what it really smelled like-- ant spray! Luckily, the smell isn't very strong and fades, but one thing I love in a body butter is a yummy scent. Add this, Yes to Tomatoes, (without sacrificing all the other good stuff) and I'll be hooked!

  • Yes To Cucumbers Color Care Leave-in Conditioner

    My dry summer hair was thirsty for a new leave-in, and I was happy to try the Yes to Cucumbers more natural option. Their products are natural, mostly organic, and paraben free, so going in I knew it could only help (never hurt) my hair. At first I was a little wary of the thick textured cream I would be leaving in my freshly shampooed hair, but it got much lighter as my hair dried. I would still avoid roots and scalp & focus on the ends (like the directions say), but it didn't weigh down my hair. Before it was even fully dry I noticed my strands were super soft and bouncy! I just wish the smell was a little more fun.

  • Dr. Bronner's Organic Lip Balm

    Dr. Bronner's Organic Lip Balm

    Another great organic lip balm.

    I am a loyal Burt's Bees user, but picked this up to check out the competition. Turns out Dr. Bronner knows his stuff. This Organic balm is a little more soft and "liquidy" than Burt's, giving a little more shine, almost like a gloss. It seems to be a good moisturizer as well. I really like how smoothly it goes on.

  • Yes To Carrots C Me Shine Lipgloss

    I love my Yes to Carrots Lipgloss. I have it in Playful Nude, a shade that goes with anyone's every day look. Finally- a gloss that isn't sticky but stays on! It is really moisturizing and smooth, easy to apply, and best of all- 95% Organic & not tested on animals. I love this brand, and the shine I get with this gloss.

  • L'Oreal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner

    L'Oreal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner

    Perfect if you don't mind the smell

    I was excited to try the L'Oreal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner, especially because my sun-lightened, dry hair was desperately in need of some serious moisture. Combined with the Moisture Shampoo, this product made my thirsty locks softer and shinier, without limiting volume. More importantly, this sulfate-free, 100% vegan conditioner is healthy for my hair and the environment! And it's great to have UVA/UVB protection built in, to protect color without stripping it. The one drawback: the Rosemary Mint scent is very strong during use and could definitely put off some. I personally liked the fresh, natural scent that subtly lingers after the wash.

  • L'Oreal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo

    All hair types can appreciate the L'Oreal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo. Whose hair doesn't need more moisture? I was so excited to try a no-sulfate, 100% vegan product (go L'Oreal!) that didn’t strip any color, but I did not want to sacrifice a nice lather and clean-feeling. Luckily, a little goes a long way to make this shampoo lather up nicely, and the fresh Rosemary Juniper scent adds to a great wash. Though it helped with moisture and shine, I still had volume, and I was even able to go longer between shampoos! All that, combined with the price? A great value.

  • Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

    I don't go a second without this stuff. It is perfect in every way. Not sticky, lasts long, smells/tastes great, not too heavy but not too light, natural, doesn't dry your lips over time, etc. I'm obsessed. I just wish it was so expensive but others are now the same price and I can't do without this product.

  • Aveeno Creamy Moisturizing Oil

    I use this lotion when I don't want a thick sticky feeling but I need to moisturize. This is light and sheer enough that you can put jeans on right after! Its perfect for all over the body and has a great smell. It doesn't moisturize as deeply as some creams, but its perfect when you don't need that.

  • Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel with Pump

    I loved the Dramatically Different Moisturizer, but it was just a little too oily for the frequency that I wanted to use it. When I tried the gel, I fell in love. I don't ever go without this product. I can apply it multiple times a day and never feel greasy, just refreshed. I have never found another moisturizer that is able to moisturize to this extent, without leaving an oily or greasy residue all day.
