  I like my shea butter like I like my men: unrefined. But seriously, as far as I'm concerned, unrefined is where it's at when it comes to oils/butters. Today's review is of Alaffia's Handcrafted, Unrefined Shea Butter. Ingredients (provided at alaffia.com)- "Handcrafted Shea (Butyrospermum parkii) Butter." Shea butter receives a nonexistent hazard score of 0 in the Cosmetics Database. 1. It’s free of parabens, phenoxyethanol, and sulfates. 2. It’s vegan and cruelty-free. 3. It’s gluten-free. 4. As with all of Alaffia's products, this one is fair trade certified. Product Description(provided...

  I've been powering through some Alaffia samples lately, and today seemed like a good day to start reviewing them.

I've been hearing about some great companies from other natural beauty bloggers lately, and Primavera is among these lovely few. They recently sent me a few products from their moisturizing line of face care to try, and I ended up loving every last one of them! Today I'll be reviewing one of the products they sent, which is the Neroli Cassis Moisturizing Lip Balm. You can expect reviews of the remaining two products on Thursday and Friday. : ) Ingredients (provided at primaveralife.com)- “Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil* org,...

A recent trip to Bath & Body Works with a gift card made me realize three things: 1. 15 dollars might as well be 15 cents a store like that. 2. There are way too many scents happening at once in a very tiny area, and 3. Bath & Body Works (or at least the one in Lake Charles) carries one, and only one, natural product. That product, which is the one pictured above, ended up being the one I took home. Ingredients (provided on product packaging)- "Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter." The Cosmetics Database gives shea butter...

  Danielle made Angry Chicken's version of homemade deodorant a while back, and while she found the tiny heart bars (pictured above) she made using a silicone muffin pan very easy to apply, the combination of ingredients didn't eliminate and prevent her body odor like she'd hoped. Danielle promptly went back to her prior homemade deodorant, and left her unused bars in our refrigerator. I'm always up for trying new things, especially those that are health and beauty related, and Danielle knows this. So...

As much as I love Dr. Bronner's liquid soap, it has done nothing at all for my winter dry skin. In an attempt to show my skin a little extra love (and since I had just run out of my Dr. Bronner's Almond Liquid Soap) , I bought Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk and Shea Butter Body Wash. Ingredients (provided at burtsbees.com)- "Water, decyl glucoside, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oleosomes, sodium cocoyl hydrolyzed soy protein, glycerin, fragrance, coco-glucoside, glyceryl oleate, non-fat dry...

I  bought a bottle of this lotion at Target a little over a month ago and have been using it once or twice a week since; I figured it was time to review it for you guys.
