MSC Natural Skincare Soap, Scrub & Candle Review

MSC or Metropolis Soap Co. is an all-natural bath and body line that is handmade in Brooklyn. And here are reviews of a few products that I’ve tried from the line:

MSC Skincare Soap

Honeysuckle & Violet Bar Soap

You guys know that I love bar soap.

The name would suggest a floral; however, this soap is a crisp green citrus. I mainly get a bitter, green lemon from this scent. I’m not usually a fan of citrus but I like this one. It smells naturally clean and… Continue reading | 1 Comment

Phoenix Botanicals Natural Butter & Balm Reviews

Phoenix Botanicals

Phoenix Botanicals Butters and Balms are all-natural multi-purpose skincare items. The balms are recommended to be used on hands, feet, face and eyes. Winter is killing my skin but these balms have really helped to keep me soft.

All of these butters/balms have a fragrance but the fragrance is faint. I like this especially if I am using these on my face. I also like that these smell pleasant but don’t compete with my perfumes.

Vanilla Butter includes organic shea butter, organic jojoba oil and infusion… Continue reading | 2 Comments

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream Review

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream is a fairly simple product that does what it is intended to do: moisturize hands. The formula is very smooth and rubs in easily.

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Eye Balm Review

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Eye Balm doesn’t do much, but I like it.

Let’s start with some background info: I’m in my 20’s and don’t have any deep lines. I’m more about preventive care. I have super dry skin so I’m always looking for moisturizing cream.

I use this at night. It does help with lines that come from dryness, especially in the winter. A little bit of it goes a long way. It’s rich, smooth and creamy. It hasn’t irritated my eyes or migrated to other areas… Continue reading | 3 Comments

Buttery Goodness: Tree Hut Shea Body Butter in Brazilian Nut

Would I eat this? Probably. Will I continue to buy this stuff by the truckload? Yes. Will I cry if I never find it again? Yes.

Tree Hut makes some amazing body products and I use them frequently and I think I should at least review them. I don’t actually know anything about the company other than all of their products are pretty amazing. I’ve been tempted to repackage it and sell it for like $50 to yuppies that don’t shop at drugstores. I’ve had a love affair with Tree Hut Shea Body Butter in… Continue reading
