Well! Today I have even more goodies for you to explore, which you can ALSO purchase on the Vitacost website, which will interest all of you ladies (and gents) interested in a little bath and beauty!
That's right! You can pick up some fabulous beauty products to keep you in check and jazz up your routine - and you can be sure that you are using the best quality product at the same time!
I picked up an assortment of brushes, eye shadow, make-up remover, soap and lip balm! I am going to go over them with you and you can decide if you'd like to see more! I am certainly pleased with all of the items and am happy to present you with my view!
First up is a Soothing Beauty Mask, which as you can see is being worn my my daughter [BEFORE we put it in the fridge], from Earth Therapeutics! The mask uses a beaded gel formula to cool and aid in tension for tired eyes and to reduce puffiness, relax and relieve. It can also be used on the forehead to cool down hot spots and relieve headache. This is a cooling mask and is used by placing in the fridge for 10 minutes or so and then over your eyes - you should never use this mask as a hot mask, ever! It is for cool soothing only and can be a good alternative for non-medicated headache relief - you should always consult a doctor before use though if you have any health or eye problems so that you are reassured that this is the right product for you!
Another product from Larenim, which I was able to try via Vitacost is a very pretty eye powder/shadow in a great color - 'Crimson Tide'! In the photo on the website it looked very red and I did get very excited! I love a good red and jumped at the chance to give it a try! When it arrived, however, the box showed a pink patch on the top and immediately my heart sank! HOWEVER! On opening the box, the color of the powder is a LOT darker than the box displays and, in fact, I was very pleased with it! A dusky pinky red, this one applies well and looks fabulous in the crease of your eye and with a pop of bold color on the outer eye! Larenim claims that all of its mineral make up is cruelty free, which is fabulous - it is also free of Parabens and Bismuth Oxychloride, with no gluten and no nano particles, talc or FD&C dyes.
Next we have some Kiss My Face pure olive oil soap [from Greece], containing no phthalates, fragrances, artificial colors or animal ingredients The soap is also gluten free, biodegradable and has not been tested on animals! The bar is quite chunky and of substance, which makes it feel good in your hands to grip, presents itself in an olive green color and lathers up quite well with a sponge or a shower puff! I regularly avoid bar soap because it dries my skin but this one did not! It felt soft and more luxurious than I had expected it too and I felt safe using this on my daughter. She loved the lather and there were no complaints! It washed off well and did not leave any residue as sometimes a bar soap might.
Next we have Pure and Natural Makeup Remover from JASON, which has been a long-time contributor to natural, better-for-you products that work without harsh chemicals or animal testing! This little tub contains 75 pads and are fabulous for removing any kind of make-up - even if it is waterproof! They contain a little Aloe Vera, Cucumber and Vitamin E and claim to leave your skin smooth and fresh without the need to rinse, which I have found to be correct! It removed my eyeliner, shadow and lipstick with ease and I have only ever needed to use 1 or 2 pads at a time. They are so convenient and the container is even recyclable! No fuss, no waste! Very nice, thank you, JASON!
Overall, Vitacost has certainly done it again! They have provided me with some quality finds and all of these items shipped in the one package for a flat fee of $4.99 or free if you spend over $49!! Every time I visit the site there is something new to discover with 229 new products added just this week! Take a look over at their website and see what goodies you can find - let me know if there is anything up there that you would particularly love to try!
