Shea Moisture: My newest obsession

Y’all know how much I LOVE natural skincare products. While I like to review a little bit of everything, the products that my skin is most in love with are the ones with the least amount of synthetic ingredients. And even though a product may SAY it’s “natural” or “organic”, most of them are not. Except Shea Moisture.

And here’s why…

LUSH Bath Bomb: Dragon’s Egg…yummy!

Not that I actually tasted this thing. That would be bad. VERY bad. Watching this bath bomb spin around in the tub reminded me of orange sherbet. My Grandma in Miami and I would eat that ALL the time.

Doesn’t that look cool?

Dragon’s Egg is a citrus-y bath bomb with notes of lemon and bergamot. It smells divine but what it DOES is even better. After spinning and twirling and going from color to color, it oozes beautiful gold glitter everywhere.

It was small enough to where it didn’t irritate my skin but left me in a beautiful tub of orange water. I loved this one. It may be AS good as my Twilight bath bomb.

Have you tried Dragon’s Egg bath bomb yet?

Kiss My Face Olive & Aloe Soap. But it’s not purty.

I’m a total Kiss My Face fan but I’m on the fence about this soap.

It has a grassy/plant-y smell and the color of the bar isn’t all that attractive. The saving grace of this soap, however, is how good it makes my skin feel. And it contains so few ingredients that you don’t have to worry about your skin flaring up. The aloe is soothing and the olive oil is moisturizing. They are available in several fragrances (Olive & Honey, Olive & Tea Tree, Olive & Lavender, etc) and you can snag 4 bars for under $5.99.

Still. There’s something about the color of the bar that makes me unhappy. Am I exaggerating? Whatcha think?

 

Johnson’s Challenge: Using baby oil as a makeup remover

I think this may be the one trick that lot of ladies are familiar with. You’ve tried this, haven’t you? I think baby oil works great for removing eyeliner and mascara.

And you’re not only removing the makeup but you’re moisturizing the area below the eyes as well. Hollers!

Who else uses baby oil to remove makeup?

 

 

 

Johnson’s Challenge: Beautifying the…dashboard?

Aaaaand, we’re moving on with the Johnson’s Beauty Challenge! I’ve showed you the benefits of applying baby powder in the stinky sneakers and now it’s time to take it to the car. Some of us spend many hours a week in our cars. You know…sitting in traffic, trying to beat rush hour (#FAIL) and going to and from work almost every day. Mama Clumps gave me the idea of slathering baby oil gel all over my dashboard to give it some extra bling.

Seriously! Watch this…

Johnson’s Challenge: Baby Powder in my shoes!

There is a reason why my running shoes are making an appearance on Clumps. Just give me a second to explain. Okay, so remember I was tellin’ y’all that I was participating in the Johnson’s Challenge? Wellll…I’ve been coming up with alternative ways (in addition to stealing some of the great ones in the comments ;)) to use the baby powder, lotion, gel and and body wash.

And how to my stinky shoes come in to play? Hit the jump to see!

Strawberry Ice Cream bath? Thanks Mrs. Whippy!

Darlings…have you found the time to take a bath yet? While I’ve been too lazy (isn’t that funny? Too lazy to relax… :D) to take one EVERY single day, I still manage to get in at least 3 bubble bath a week. I recently took one and used the Mrs. Whippy bath bomb from LUSH.

Ain’t she purty? LUSH says that this bomb smells like Strawberry Ice Cream and I couldn’t agree more. She’s got soya milk powder infused in her so when she fizzes out, she leaves your bath water milky. You know what though? I didn’t find her to be the softest bath bomb that I’ve experienced. In fact, she was just okay. It was her scent and slow fizzing fireworks that stole the show for me.

Mrs. Whippy, your intentions were good, ma’am. And you smell divine. But a sista with skin as dry as mine needs more softening action. Love you anyway. Mrs. Whippy is only $4.95 at LUSH retail stores and LUSH.com. I purchased this one a few months ago but I love how my LUSH bath bombs always smell so pretty until I use them.
