Mrs. Claus Whipped Meringue

I am all about a thick, moisturizing body butter. I love to slather myself from head to toe with anything I can find! This Whipped Meringue is super lightweight and absorbs into the skin easily. It has a high oil content for how lightweight this lotion is. Because of how moisturizing this body butter is, it only takes a little dollop to moisturize your body parts! Trust me, it is easy to use too much! Less is more with this product!

Now if you are looking at the scent notes, and are turned off by how sweet this scent sounds, don’t be! It is a sweet scent, but the musk does a lot to tone down the sweetness of the cotton candy and bubblegum. I cannot make out the specific notes of the cotton candy or the bubblegum, they mix together so seamlessly to create a nice sweet base and the white musk tones down the sweetness and adds some depth to the scent. On the skin, the white musk comes to the top, so you are left with a sweet smelling musky scent. It is definitely a scent worth trying out! The scent lasts on the skin nicely. If I apply this at night after my shower, I can still smell it the next day on my body, the sheets, and my pjs!

Whipped Meringues from Ahhh Sugar Sugar have become a staple product for me. They are super moisturizing on the skin, their scents are amazing, and they last on the skin for hours! They also have good ingredients in them which help repair and maintain the skin. Ahhh Sugar Sugar is a company I can get behind and stay behind. If you love body butters and are looking to try out a product of theirs, try a Whipped Meringue. You will not be disappointed!

Zoetic Glamour Shampoo Bar

I am a new believer and lover in shampoo bars. I believe shampoo bars are an amazing invention that helps reduce waste, are cost effective, and they eliminate parabens and sulfates. I do not have much experience with shampoo bars, but the little experience I do have, I know that I love them!

I have curly, can be frizzy, dry hair. I color my hair, and I have to use a lot of conditioner and oils to keep my curls curly and not frizzy, but not too much because I do not want my hair to be greasy or weighed down. I have very picky hair!

Zoetic’s Glamour Shampoo Bar is made of antioxidant and nutrient rich ingredients such as Kokum Butter and Black Cumin Seed Oil that promote hair growth and elasticity. It also has Moroccan Rose Oil and Avocado Oil that help moisturize the scalp and and nourish the strands along with strengthening the roots of the hair.

After only two uses of Glamour Shampoo Bar, I can tell a noticeable difference in my hair. My hair is softer and smoother, while still holding a curl, and does not feel weighed down at all! My hair feels less damaged, as in my ends don’t feel as rough or “in need” of a trim and my “fly aways” are tamed and not “flying” around my face. I am thoroughly impressed with this shampoo bar.

Zoetic recommends Glamour Shampoo Bar for normal to dry hair, and I would wholeheartedly agree. I feel with how much moisture this shampoo bar gives, it might be too much for oily-haired girls. For the dry-haired girls and guys, you MUST give this shampoo bar a try! It will change your hair game!

Glamour Shampoo Bar is scented with Rose and Strawberries. Right out of the box, you can smell the rose! It is a very strong floral scent. Once in the heat of the shower, the strawberry scent comes out to play. It turns into a sweet, floral scent. I do not notice that the scent lasts on the hair.

Zoetic is having a major sale right now, so now is the time to pick up some items to try! I will post the link for Glamour Shampoo Bar below, and I also highly recommend checking out the Sugar Body Polish, Bath Salt Soaks, and the Petal Drops! Let me know what you try and love!

The Dirty Goat: Lemon Love Whipped Cleansing Scrub

I love a good scrub. I don’t feel completely clean without first scrubbing the top layer of my skin off, and then going in with a cleanser!

In comes The Dirty Goat Lemon Love Whipped Cleansing Scrub! This product is super thick and packed with sugar! It only takes a little bit to get a nice lather and exfoliation! I would consider this a moderate level exfoliator, and the sugar crystals are HUGE which really helps with the “scrubbyness” of the product. I love that this product lathers up when in use, it is such an innovative cleansing scrub! It creates a nice thick lather, that is so unlike any other product that I have found. I feel completely clean after using this product and it gives me the exfoliation that I desire.

This smells of lemons, and I LOVE lemon scents! To my nose, this smells of citronella candles. Some people might be put off by that description, but it smells just like the citrusy, lemony, summery scent of citronella candles! I find it simply delightful.

The packaging is amazing as well. It comes in a plastic tub with a flip-top lid, that I find simply perfect! It makes it so easy to use in the shower, with not having to twist off a cap and holding or find a place for such cap. You just flip up the top of the tub and dig in! I will definitely be repurposing this tub for other uses after I am done with this cleansing scrub.

All in all, I cannot get enough of this cleansing scrub, and I think it is a must have for these warm summer months. As of now, The Dirty Goat does not have the Lemon Love Whipped Cleansing Scrub up on her site, but she does have a different scented cleansing scrub and she also does regular restocks, so go check her out! https://www.thedirtygoatsoapco.com/

Zoetic Strawberries and Cream Sugar Body Polish

Zoetic’s Sugar Body Polish is a scrub lovers dream!

Zoetic’s Sugar Body Polish is formulated like all the wonderful old school scrubs are, with none of the added “whipped” or soaps (not that I don’t love those too), but Zoetic knew that they did not need to mess with a good thing! This sugar body polish is packed full of sugar, and oils and butters that really gives back to the skin! This scrub has a TON of sugar in it that gives a nice exfoliation to the skin and I do not have to use a lot of product to get a good scrub going, which is something that I look for in my scrubs because I HATE to waste product.

The Sugar Body Polish is so packed full of oils and butters, that some of them will sit on top of the product, but it just takes a little stir or shake to get it all mixed together! This product is super moisturizing. It has cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil, and golden jojoba oil that helps replenish the skin and repair the skin’s natural barrier. My skin felt and looked amazing after using this scrub!

I got the scent in Strawberries and Cream, and let me tell you, it is out of this world! It smells like the old school soda shoppe milkshake or suckers. It smells like sweet strawberries with a hint of warmth from the cream. It is a very sweet scent. When in use, it fills up the whole bathroom!

I highly recommend these scrubs, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the other scents of this scrub! They are also on sale right now, so go stock up on some of your favorites! https://bezoetic.com/collections/body-scrub

Yuzu Scented Probiotic Deodorant

I have been searching high and low for an all natural deodorant without aluminum, that keeps me smelling fresh, and is reasonably affordable. If I could also find one that would support a small business, that would be even better!

Now enters The Dirty Goat Probiotic Deodorant! This deodorant is awesome! It is created without baking soda, so it doesn’t leave you with a rash. It has cocoa butter, emulsifying wax, and shea butter, so it is super gentle on your tender underarms. The arrowroot powder helps to keep to you dry and the diatomaceous earth helps to pull harmful toxins out of your body.

I ordered this deodorant in the Yuzu scent. This scent is a super light, fruity scent. It lasts on your skin all day, which is a must for a deodorant! The Yuzu scent is a permanent scent, along with Rose and Vetiver. Erica, the owner of The Dirty Goat, often comes out with limited times scents throughout the year as well!

Since I have entered the life of aluminum free deodorant, and my pores have no longer been clogged by the toxic metal, I find that I no longer stay “dry” throughout the day. I am fine with this aspect of the aluminum free life. This deodorant does not keep me dry throughout the day, but it does keep me fresh smelling, which is all I can ask for!

I would highly recommend this deodorant if you are in the market for an all natural, aluminum free deodorant! Also supporting small businesses with awesome owners is excellent! Here is a link for https://www.thedirtygoatsoapco.com/

Erica holds restocks often, and she is always coming out with new products to try! Check out her site and enjoy some of her amazing products!

 

June Box of Sugar: Sippin’ into Summertime

I just received my June Box of Sugar in the mail and I am soooo excited! This month’s box is filled with fruity, zesty, citrusy scents: my favorite! It also has some brand new scents and products in it which gets my product-loving self all tingly! I also love that all of these scents are plays on alcoholic beverages! I think it is super creative, and as a bartender, I love seeing some of my favorite drinks in bath form!

The first product from this month’s box is a brand new product! It is the Spiked Lemonade Shower Creme! I have never seen a shower creme in this format before, and I am super anxious to give it a shot! This has scent notes of pink lemonade, iced champagne, and sugared lemons. This is a very light and delicate scent. It’s uncanny how you can make out the pink lemonade and sugared lemons. The champagne adds a nice fizzy aspect to the scent!

Bath Bomb/Shower Steamer: Sparkling Mojito: This is a small sized bath bomb/shower steamer, but with most minty products, they pack a punch! I love minty and lime scents, so I am super excited to try this out! This product also has cane sugar and fizzy soda scent notes which will just be delightful!

Sugar Slushie: Queen City Vice: This is my first sugar slushie and I am super excited to try it! From my understanding this can be used as an exfoliating soap! The amount of sugar and oils in this is amazing and I am super excited to try it! I also love a harsher exfoliation, so I believe this product will be right up my ally! This has scent notes of pina colada and strawberry daiquiri. This is such a sweeeeet scent, but I love it! You can distantly smell the strawberries and coconut!

Solid Bubble Bar: Lady Mule: I love bubbles! I think the best part of a bath is the bubbles and I don’t think you can ever have too many bubbles! This bubble bar is a good size and I imagine I will be able to get several baths out of it, if I choose to use it sparingly. I love the coloring in this bubble bar as well, I can’t wait to see what color it turns the bath water! The scent notes are fresh ginger, zesty lime, lemon juice, and fizzy soda.

Next month’s Box of Sugar theme is “Flashback Friday.” I am super excited to see what the ladies bring back for this Box! I have enjoyed Ahhh Sugar Sugar products for a little over a year now, and I know there are so many products that I have yet to try!

May Box of Sugar: It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to

May Box of Sugar: It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to!

I love subscription boxes! I love getting something in the mail every month! It is like a present to myself! Ahhh Sugar Sugar Box of Sugar is an amazing subscription box that sends 3-4 unique bath and body products every month. Some of these products are old favorites, some of them are new recipes they are trying out, some we will be able to buy again. They also include a little fact sheet with information on each product and some fun facts! It is all in the personal touches 🙂

Ahhh Sugar Sugar is a small business that runs out of North Carolina by a gal named Haley and her gang of Wonder Women. They only ever produce vegan-friendly products and they are never tested on animals. They are also very conscious of their impact on the environment! I love this company! They have an amazing esthetic and their products and designs are out of this world!

May’s Box of Sugar held four items with a fifth bonus item! I have not tried these items out, but as I do, I will write a review on them and post it here!

The first item is Birthday Suit. It is a Bath Frosting with scent notes of birthday cake, fruit loops, jasmine and clary sage. Bath Frostings are a soft soap with added sugar for some mild exfoliation. This Bath Frosting smells just like cake batter! I cannot wait to get this into the shower and see how it smells on the skin and in the water.

The second item is Lemon Buttons. It is a Sugar Scrub with scent notes of zesty lemons, warm sugar cookies, and powdered sugar. It has a light lemon scent with a hint of bakery. I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar sugar scrubs! They are super exfoliating and moisturizing.

The third item is Yassss Hunny Premium bath oil. This has scent notes of orange creamsicle, birthday cake, and marshmallows. This is a super sweet and sugary scent!I am excited to try this in the bath and see how it moisturizes the bath water. This product comes in a super cute little Honey Bear!

The fourth item is Shake ya Shortcake. It is a bath bomb on bottom with a bath melt on top. This has scent notes of fluffy cake, fresh strawberries, and sweet cream. You can definitely pick up on the strawberries and the cream in this scent! It is a beautifully light scent. Nothing overpowering. This scent reminds me of Lush’s Yummy Mummy Shower Cream, so if you enjoy that scent, you are sure to LOVE this one. This is an average sized bath bomb, with an oversized bath melt on top. It is shaped like a cupcake! The bath melt is made with pure cocoa butter and will be super moisturizing on the skin!

The BONUS item is Birthday Shot-sky. This is a Jelly Soap Shot. This has scent notes of cotton candy and grape bubblegum. This comes in a little plastic 2 oz cup and it looks just like a Jello Shot! It is a super cute and clever idea. It is really jiggly and looks like jello! This can be used as a soap or to make bubbles in your bath! It reminds me of Lush’s Shower Jellies. If you like that type of product, than you will LOVE this.

Again, I love this subscription box and I definitely think this is worth the money. You can choose to prepay for 6 or 12 months, or you can pay month to month. If you choose to prepay, than the boxes get a little cheaper. If you choose the 12 month plan, then the boxes are $26.25 a month. The 6 month plan are $32 a month. The month to month plan is $34.99 a month. It is worth it to prepay in the long run, but if you only want to try it out or get it for a present, then it is nice to have the option to only by it for a month.

I love this company’s values, and I enjoy being able to buy and support small businesses. This is not sponsored. Ahhh Sugar Sugar does not even know of me or know that I would be writing this review. I am just a huge fan, I enjoy their products and values, and I believe in supporting small businesses. Check out the company and figure out for yourself what you think of them!
