  • Yes To Cucumbers Facial Cleansing Gel

    I bought this as part of a 3 piece kit from Target, and the price was right! I got a full size of this wash, a full size eye gel, and a mini tub of the facial moisturizer. I like this wash ok, I'm not blown away by it, but it does ok for my skin. I'm prone to breakouts once in a while, and while this doesn't cause me to break out, it doesn't do anything to fix my skin if I do have some issues with it. But it also doesn't claim to help with acne. It's a nice, basic clean. The fragrance is also nice, but a little bit more potent than I would like. Overall, this is a decent all around wash.

  • Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk and Shea Butter Body Wash

    This body wash is ok I guess. I don't find it to be super moisturizing, and less so than other naturally based body washes that I've used. The scent is kind of ok, but it a weird way it smells like the hallway from my high school 10 years ago where the swimming pool was. Which is kind of strange. And it doesn't lather hardly at all, I started using it with a sea sponge thing I bought instead of my mesh pouf, because the mesh just scratched the crap out of my skin and totally negated any moisturizing effects this body wash had because it has no lather. Wow, I guess I don't really have anything too nice to say about this.

  • Alba Coconut Cream Clear Lip Gloss

    Alba Coconut Cream Clear Lip Gloss

    it's ok, but not for all day long!

    This is part of my 6-piece lipgloss rotation in my purse...not really a rotation I guess, but I have a bunch of different ones and just grab one when I need some glossiness. This smells nice and moisturizes well, but I've noticed that if I use several times straight, my lips get irritated and start peeling a little bit. I'm prone to my lips freaking out if I'm not careful. Overall though, this is a pretty nice gloss.

  • Alba Coconut Milk Extra-Rich Hair Conditioner

    I really like this conditioner. It leaves my hair soft and hydrated, but not overly so. My hair is really prone to getting greasy, so I was kind of worried when I bought this shampoo and conditioner because in all honesty, I bought it for the smell :) This is the perfect balance for my hair though. My only gripe is that the conditioner is SO thick, it's hard to get out of the bottle unless you store the bottle upside down. It should come in a bottle that dispenses from the bottom. But good other than that little technicality.

  • Alba Coconut Milk Extra=Rich Hair Wash

    Alba Coconut Milk Extra=Rich Hair Wash

    not sure how to feel...

    This shampoo and conditioner is marketed as being really hydrating and nourishing, but I have to agree that this shampoo isn't. It gets my hair really, really squeaky clean, which is actually a good thing for me because my hair gets pretty greasy, but I can understand the frustration of other people hoping for something moisturizing! I like it, but not because it is what it says it is! So I guess that's not so good, haha.

  • Yes To Cucumbers Eye Love Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel

    This is the second eye gel I've tried, and it's way safer in terms of ingredients than the one I had before, which shall remain nameless. And it works just as well! I'm not sure that it helps dark circles go away, and don't expect it to do anything for wrinkles, but when I put it on it makes me feel like I DIDN'T just roll out of bed. And now in the morning I don't feel quite right if for some reason I forgot to use it. I bought it as part of a 3 piece kit at Target for $20, so it was an awesome deal. And I know it will last a long time because after like 2 months I haven't even made a dent in it.

  • Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara

    I bought this because my new obsession is finding good products with safer ingredients. If Tinkerbell had mascara, I'm pretty sure it would look like this, and I think the packaging is a little much...but, this rates really well in terms of ingredient safety, and it brushes on almost exactly like LashBlast, which I've been using for a while. The regular black is actually way darker than I was expecting, and it looks good. It does smudge and run pretty easily, like other readers have said, but it also comes off of your undereyes easily if it does end up down there, which sometimes happens to me but it's barely noticeable. I wear hard contacts and my eyes feel irritated some days, but it's hard to tell if this contributes to that or not, because all kinds of stuff causes it. Overall, this mascara is a decent buy if you're looking for something effective and safe.

  • Alba Cream Shave
    8.0

    Alba Cream Shave

    pretty good

    I decided to try this shave stuff after finding out that another "organic" company puts some really scary ingredients into their cream shave, which is actually a really popular and well reviewed product. Shame on them. Anyway, this stuff is decent. I have the mint kind, which smells nice and makes my skin kind of tingly. It doesn't provide the smoothest shave ever in the whole world, but it's pretty good. And for the safe ingredients, plus the price, it's alright.

  • Kiss My Face Ultra Moisturizer

    Kiss My Face Ultra Moisturizer

    kind of different....

    I was really excited to try this lotion, but now I feel kind of let down. The smell is lovely, it's yummy and sweet without being overpowering. But, when it comes out of the pump the consistency feels pretty watery, so you think you need to get a little bit more. But THEN when you start to rub it in, it turns crazy bright white, and takes FOREVER to get it all rubbed in! It's moisturizing but not amazingly so, and it's pretty much the weirdest body lotion I've ever used. The extra time commitment to apply it isn't a huge deal, so I will probably use it until the bottle is gone because it also wasn't the cheapest ever. So far I can't decide if I really like it or not.

  • Dr. Bronner's Organic Baby Mild Liquid Soap

    I've been using this on my 15 month old for a couple of weeks now, and I don't think I'll ever go back to anything else. I was using a baby wash specifically for dry skin and eczema, because one of the first times we gave her a bath we tried using the conventional baby washes (which shall remain nameless), and her skin FREAKED OUT. Her entire trunk turned bright red and irritated, and she SCREAMED....it was awful. I was mostly satisfied with the eczema wash I was using, but this stuff is even better. Even 2 days after her last bath, her skin is still moisturized and doesn't feel dry at all. And since we've been using it, I haven't seen her scratch at herself like she was before. I couldn't recommend this any more highly, and another plus is that it doesn't have the scary ingredients that everything else has. I will definitely be giving a bottle to all the new mommies I know :)
