LUSH’s Dirty Collection. Can unisex products work?

As if I needed another reason to love LUSH, they’ve recently debuted a unisex line. They call the collection a ‘no-nonsense fragrance that hits you with intensely crisp spearmint, thyme and tarragon, and the subtle smell of calm seas’. Hmm, products that both guys and calls can use? I figured the best way to review this was to get the opinion of The Guy. The Guy is my boyfriend of almost a year that I never talk about online because I’m private like that. But who better to test drive these products with me than my right-hand man?

Brace yourself for this ride, kids. Me + The Guy =craziness.

Pooka Pure & Simple


Nothing excites me more than getting the opportunity to review products from up and coming brands. I fell in love with the Pooka Pure & Simple at first sniff. This women-owned business has a passion for natural skincare and haircare products. I soooo wish I could translate a smell into words. But since I can’t, you’ll have to fall for the pics. Brace yourself…

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?
