  I recently received a Spring Beauty VoxBox that contained several health and beauty products for me to try. Unfortunately, many of the brands, like ChapStick and Aveeno, were those that I have been avoiding for ages. The concealer that I'll be reviewing today was also in the box. While the ingredients could definitely be a whole lot cleaner, my frugality convinced me that I should at least give the $24 product a try. Ingredients (provided on product packaging)- “caprylic/capric triglyceride, octydodecanol, euphorbia cerifera wax, copernicia cerifera wax, jojoba...

I've only recently begun to research it extensively, and it's quickly becoming  yet another ingredient I'll steer clear of in the future. Apparently, phenoxyethanol is a chemical preservative has become a common replacement for parabens in a lot of natural brands. It has been linked to skin irritation, hormone disruptions, and...

Link to EO Essentials Orange & Ginger Spice Shower Gel Review

After finishing my bottle of Milk & Shea Butter Body Wash, I began searching for something with an ingredient list that wasn't tainted by fragrance.  When I came across EO Essentials Orange Ginger Spice Shower Gel, I must've been so pleased by the price and the lack of synthetic fragrance that I forgot to analyze the rest of the ingredient list before purchasing it.
