Aubrey Natural Sun SPF 15 Tropical Scent
Posted by OrganicMommy on Jun 27, 2013
I grabbed this because it was a special price, and I'm so glad I did! The ingredients aren't bad, it has a low score on the EWG site (which is good, not too much harmful ingredients). It is sticky at first for a bit, but I think it absorbs into the skin well, and is easily spreadable, a little greasy. It seems okay at sun protection (wouldn't trust it for a long time out in hot sun). But the scent, I just love it! It's a natural fruity tropical smell, not perfumey at all.

I really like this powder cleaner, I use it to clean anything in the bathroom. I was looking to replace Comet (conventional powder cleaner with bleach) and this definitely does the job.
Dead Sea Mud Soap Bar
Posted by OrganicMommy on Jul 10, 2013
This is the best soap I have found! I have been looking and trying many natural bar soaps, but many are made with multiple oils, which is just too greasy for my oily skin and my skin doesn't feel clean. I use this on my face in the morning, as well as the rest of my body in the shower. It cleanses my oily skin without drying, and the price is great for the size bar that it is!! I was hoping it would have a little bit of a cinnamin-y scent, but if it does, it's very faint. I order this bar with each iherb order so I will always have it. So far, it is my favorite soap for my oily skin.
Honeybee Gardens Deodorant Powder

I have been using this for several months now, and still have a good amount left in bottle (however, only use it on underarms). I use this on top of my deodorant to help keep underarms dry, and I find it works quite well. It seems to keep me dry just for everyday activities, haven't exercised or used it in summer months yet. Not much of a scent, not an overpowering one anyway.

As an oil controlling finishing powder, this works! This works as well as my MAC loose powder. At 12 hours or more, my skin isn't even greasy to the touch, and I have used it several different times. I use it on top of Larenim pressed powder. My complaints: when I first apply, it looks like I dusted my face with flour, if I apply too heavily (I've found it still works at controlling oil even with a lighter application that does not make my face white. It looks natural.) It has a fluffy consistency similar to flour, and leaves a white outline at my hair line (not with a lighter application). It clumps up on top of my concealer. It seems to settle into pores and dry skin, emphasizing them (temporarily), but again, not so much with a light application. I wish the powder had a bit more color; it's very light. Perhaps then it wouldn't look like I was baking and got flour on my face. This is not for dry skin. All in all, I'm liking it, it's great for everday, but for an evening out, I'll still have to use my MAC liquid loose powder.

I like this cream, but am not loving it. I have combination/oily skin, and it is just a little too heavy, I think. I believe it is the beeswax in it--feels velvety when first put on but dries just a tad...sticky, face doesn't feel super smooth. It also seems to irritate my neck--turns red and blotchy, and feels itchy when I first put it on, but that goes away (I don't have sensitive skin usually). The bottle is small but packaged nicely. I don't think I'd order it again. Just not remarkable.
Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Soap

This soap is okay. I probably wouldn't buy this again. It didn't seem to do anything for my skin. The mango soap is superior to this. Might be better for dry skin. Definitely not a strong scent ,but it smells like coconut milk.
Now Pomegranate Lip Balm

Not moisturizing enough at all, and I don`t even have dry lips. In fact, I would say it causes my lips to be dry when normally I don`t have a problem with dry lips. It doesn`t last, it`s not very moisturizing. I wouldn`t buy again.
