Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub

Voted one of Allure’s Readers’ Choice winners in 2016, the Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs are definitely worth trying out; especially if you are looking to get your skin summer ready. 

The shea sugar scrubs come in several different scent combinations, including: Coconut Lime, Marula & Jasmine, Moroccan Rose, Brazilian Nut, Tropical Mango, Pomegranate Acai, Hawaiian Kukui, Passion Fruit & Guava, Lychee & Plum, and Original Shea.

I have tried the three pictured above, and would absolutely repurchase them. It is a very gentle scrub that exfoliated very well and leaves your skin feeling very soft and moisturized. 

The application is simple and self-explanatory. You just scoop out the desired amount of product into your hand and apply in a circular motion to the area of the body you want to exfoliate. The sugar disintegrates as you scrub, and moisturizes your skin. Once you’ve scrubbed enough, rinse with water. I usually use this product while I am in the shower, after I have washed with soap.

So where can you pick up these scrubs to try out for yourself, you ask. Ulta has a large selection (actually I think they carry every single version), and they often have a two for one, or buy one get the second 1/2 off deal. But for the regular price of $7.99 (18 oz.) you are still getting a great product for an inexpensive price tag. I have also seen them for sale on Amazon and at some Bed, Bath and Beyond stores.

Thanks for reading! ☺️

Soap & Glory Vitamin C Facial Wash

This is the second product I’ve tried from Soap & Glory, and again I am totally impressed. The first product I tried was their Hand Food, and to put it mildly, it is the greatest hand lotion in all the land. You can read my complete thoughts on the review I posted previously here.

So with the sheer amazingness of the first product of theirs I tried, I figured I’d press my luck and try another (with fingers crossed).

I was in the market for a new face wash, and while wandering aimlessly through Ulta, I came across the Soap & Glory display. Now first, you must know that I am a total sucker for great packaging. Soap & Glory has that indeed, big cheers to whoever is in charge of that.

Based on how impressed I was by the Hand Food hand lotion, I did not hesitate to grab the Vitamin C Facial Wash off the shelf. I read the labels, glanced over the beautiful aqua blue gel with little pink dots within and proceeded to place it in to my bag of purchases.

When I got home I placed it my shower so it would be ready to go. Before diving right in, I remembered how concentrated their hand lotion was – a little goes a long way. So I squeezed about a pea sized amount in my hand and went to work.  Wow! Wow! Wow! Foamy, refreshing, and cleansing! Loooooooved it!

I have used it ever since. Now I will be the first to admit, I do not have acne prone skin. It is fairly normal most days, and can get a little dry here and there. For me this stuff is one of my favorite face washes to date. In fact, I am still working on my first bottle. This stuff lasts forever! So for a $12, 11.8 ounce bottle, your money will go far, and $12 is extremely inexpensive for the quality product that it is.

For those of you who need more convincing, it has a rating of 4.5/5 on Ulta’s website, based on 249 reviews.

Also here are the details from the description on the Ulta website if you are still contemplating 😉

  • Face Soap And Clarity 3-in-1 Daily Vitamin C Facial Wash smoothes and purifies for super clean, fresh and bright skin.

With complexion-friendly, non-drying, easy-rinse ingredients including natural Superfruit Yuzu and Ultra-Soft Scrub-Beads, this high-tech foaming facial wash is a multi-tasking miracle.

• Cleansing, foaming and smoothing.

• Gently, polishes and purifies.

• Energizes and brightens.

• Strategically formulated for oily/combination skin.

In a nutshell, the Vitamin C Facial Wash from Soap & Glory is refreshing, effective, aromatically pleasing, and inexpensive. Try it for yourself! At $12, what do you have to lose?! My bet is that you’ll be just as impressed as me. 🙂

Of course you can find this product online at the Soap & Glory website, Ulta, and Target.

Lime Crime Velvetines

   
Liquid lipsticks are here to stay and one of my more recent discoveries has been Lime Crime’s Velvetines line. 

These velvety rich lip colors go on smoothly and dry to a nice matte finish. The color is long lasting and stays put.

The shade “Beet It” (pictured above) is a beautiful deep berry color. It is undoubtedly one of my new favorite colors.

22 shades from classic colors to the bold and unique. Prices range from $16 to $20 depending on the color and they are cruelty free and vegan.
