It’s been months since I’ve let myself back onto the oh-so-temping iHerb website. It seems that every time I visit there is something that calls my name! But, here’s how I rationalise it: I’ve resolved to educate myself on each product that I buy, and hopefully, to buy healthier options more often. Save for a few brands, the local drug stores don’t have many of these.
So. Less trips to Shoppers Drug Mart equals an iHerb* haul here and there. Yay! Plus, you know how I feel about getting things in the mail, right?
My mission for this “shopping trip” was to find an all in one cleansing product (body/face/hair) that I could take with me to hot yoga. I have used Lush shampoo bars before and enjoyed them, but then I began to learn about the benefits and simplicity of black soap. This variety by Alaffia has only a handful of ingredients, primarily: fair trade shea butter, palm kernel oil, and peppermint.
So far so good – I’ve used it at home a few times and I have no complaints. The smell is quite strong, but I don’t mind. (There is an unscented version available). I’m going to throw a small container into my toiletry bag, and let you know what I think of it as a part of my yoga “kit.”
This second item is pretty self explanatory when you consider the season, and weather we have been having. Dry skin, be gone!
This is the first bottle of Weleda I’ve tried, and I really enjoy it’s thicker consistency. It feels like it’s doing somthin’.
Last but not least, I completely ran out of my favourite Blissoma moisturiser, and decided it would be nice to try something new. And less expensive. I have heard great things about Acure’s shampoo and conditioner range, and the reviews for this moisturiser were very positive.
I have been using it for a week now, and I am very happy! My skin hasn’t had a negative reaction (which it is prone to) and I enjoy the pleasant orange scent.
