This week literally flew by. I can’t believe it’s already Friday but I’m so glad that it is. I also can’t believe it’s the LAST Friday of April. This year is flying by, too. On Sunday I’m doing the Multiple Sclerosis walk with a good friend of mine (I joined her team) and I’m really excited because I’ve never done it before. I’m also excited because I passed my donations goal. Thank goodness it’s Friday, y’all! 😉 Here are the things I reached for this week and was in love with.
eos lip balm – I’ve had this lip balm for a while and I was never really a fan. Every time I used it was simply because I wanted to finish it. I recently won a new flavor from eos and I noticed that I reach for them both a lot more than I did before. I doubt I’ll buy one again but they’ve been working nicely for me as the weather changes – I definitely wouldn’t recommend them for the colder months. I do, however, love the lotion (check out my review here). Despite the fact that I don’t think it’s the most moisturizing lip balm, I LOVE that it’s 95% organic since I’ve slowly been implementing an “All Natural Lifestyle”.
Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer – This week was my second time using the Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer and I absolutely love how moisturized my hair feels. Above is a picture of my hair after I used it the first time. I think this product is definitely one that is forgotten. If you’re looking for a moisturizing hair cream, I would definitely recommend this. I washed my hair Monday and it still feels moisturized this Friday morning.
Shea Moisture Lavender & Wild Orchid Body Wash – If you know me then you know I am addicted to all things Shea Moisture from hair to body to face. During the holiday season I visited the Shea Moisture Shops at Bryant Park and picked up some things I hadn’t tried before, this body wash being one of them. I thought it would be nice to try because I have trouble sleeping sometimes and lavender calms and relaxes you. I use this before bed and it’s so nice. It gives a really nice lather and the subtle scent of lavender definitely helps me unwind before bed. I will definitely be repurchasing this.
Shea Moisture Organic Black Soap Balancing Conditioner – This past wash day I used my SM Black Soap Conditioner (I’m on my second bottle). I love the shampoo and conditioner combination. When I use it I definitely see a difference in my dry scalp. (I didn’t use the shampoo this week because I’m running low.) I don’t have dry scalp as much anymore after changing my diet and some other key things but when I have a little I reach for this (and the shampoo) and it never disappoints. It’s definitely a staple and works beautifully when detangling.
Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Conditioner – I am in LOVE with this conditioner and I have been for a few years. (I reviewed it and the shampoo here on YouTube.) I recently purchased a second bottle of this so that I would have a back up because it’s that good. When I have a little dry scalp, I use it as a co-wash and I love it much more than the shampoo because it gives me a deep down clean but it’s more moisturizing than the shampoo – it’s the best of both worlds. Since CD products can be a little pricey I bought the second bottle when it was on sale and I’m so glad that I did.
