The Dirty Goat: State of Grace Face Oil

I have used and loved facial oils for years now. In high school and college, my mom and I would research different carrier oils, mixing oils and essential oils to use to make our own homemade facial moisturizer. Since then, I have started dabbling in trusted skin care brands that provide facial oils.

The Dirty Goat makes skin care, shower, and body products that are luxurious and homemade. She has the most unique and intriguing scent blends that will make you come back for more! But I digress, we are here for her State of Grace Face Oil!

State of Grace Face Oil is one of her OG products that she has been making for years. I remember in one of my first orders I placed with Erica, she put a sample of the State of Grace Face Oil in the order, and I knew that I wanted to try more of her skin care products.

State of Grace Face Oil is a thicker oil that is packed full of essential and skin healthy oils that nourish and moisturize the skin. I find that this oil is best for nighttime use, because it is a bit of a thicker oil that can take some time to sink into the skin. This face oil will leave your skin nourished throughout the night and into the next morning. This face oil does not break me out, helps to calm my skin, and actually reduces redness and inflammation with continued use.

Now let’s get into the ingredients! State of Grace is made up of nourishing oils that help moisturize and protect the skin. Jojoba oil helps regulate oil production and helps prevent clogged pores. Rice Bran oil helps to even out skin tone, reduce pigmentation and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hemp seed oil has anti-aging properties to it. Argan oil helps to moisturize and soften the skin. Rosehip seed oil helps to correct dark spots and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin E helps to block free radicals and keep your skin looking young. Evening Primrose oil helps to hydrate and prevent acne. Clary Sage helps to regulate oil production and reduce inflammation in the skin. Lavender Essential Oil is moisturizing and anti-bacterial which helps to prevent and treat acne.

Whew! When I said that this oil is PACKED full of amazing oils, I was not kidding. There is no filler ingredient in this bunch! Everything that has been put into this product has a reason and purpose. Products like this truly set The Dirty Goat apart from the others.

This oil is packaged in an 100% recycled plastic with a pump. This makes it easy to use, and helps protect the oils from light and air so they stay at their most effective and potent. This product cost $36 for 2oz. This is not a cheap product, but as you can see from the ingredient list, there is a reason for that. Also, 2 oz of face oil will go a long way, especially if only used at night.

I would highly recommend this product from The Dirty Goat if you are looking for a high quality face oil. You can find The Dirty Goat on Facebook and Instagram. Those are the best places to stay up to date on future restocks and make suggestions for products. Erica opens up her website, http://www.thedirtygoatsoapco.com almost weekly, during the pre-orders or restocks.

If you made it this far, THANK YOU! I appreciate all of you. Drop a comment down below if you have tried anything from The Dirty Goat or future reviews you would like to see me do! Have a great day, friends!

May Box of Sugar: Happy Birthday, Uni-mer-cat!

It is that time of month again, Box of Sugar review time! This has been a much anticipated box for everyone that has been following along in the Facebook group! In this month’s box, we received 2 brand spankin’ new products along with the first ever soy wax candle to be featured in a box, and a regular line product. I am sad to say, I am pretty disappointed by this Box of Sugar though. I will explain why down below, so keep reading! If you loved this Box, I am so glad! All the reviews I have seen so far have all been positive, but everyone is different and allowed their own opinions. Now, onto the fun!

The first product is one of their new inventions; Fluff! This is their newest whipped soap scented in their very popular Yasss Hunny scent. I am not thrilled with this product, and it is mainly because of the packaging. I am so used to and spoiled by the frosted glass jars or even the plastic jars, that this plastic tub they gave us doesn’t jive well with me. This reminds me of a margarita salt container! The soap looks great, and I am sure it performs beautifully, but I cannot get over the packaging. The scent smells amazing, all orange, cake, and mallow. This is a popular scent for a reason! I get a strong scent of the soap through the fragrance though, so I am curious to see how that plays in the heat of the shower.

Fantasea Solid Bubble Bar is a beautifully crafted mermaid tail, that smells like coconut, fruit and musk. I cannot wait to get this in my bath and see how blue it makes my water! My mermaid tale came broken, but that is okay, I will be cutting it all up anyway!

We have another new product with Blueberry Yum Yum Lustre Custard. This is their famous custard recipe with lots of added shimmer to make this beautiful product! I love a good shimmer body lotion, and I do not feel like there are enough of these products on the market. Blueberry Yum Yum is supposed to smell like Blueberry donuts and coconut sprinkles. I smell sun tan lotion. I love the scent of Blueberry, and I am not a big fan of coconut. The scent may change over time though. We also got just a little baby 2 oz size. Most boxes in the past, I feel as if we have gotten at least 4 oz sizes.

Put on your Birthday Suit Soy Candle: This is a collaboration with the The Barn at Post Oak. I am so excited to receive a candle, and I love this scent! This smells of sweet birthday cake, with grounding sage to take the edge off. This is my favorite product from this month’s box! My unicorn did come not attached to my lid, but that is okay, I can hot glue it. I still have their Birthday Suit Bath Frosting from last years Box of Sugar!

Overall, I think that this box has amazing ideas and creations, they just weren’t really for me. With the packaging of the fluff and the size of the Lustre Custard, I do not feel like we got an amazing value for our dollar. The candle is amazing, as is the bubble bar, but they can’t carry the whole box. I love Ahhh Sugar Sugar, and continue to support and promote them on my pages, but this just wasn’t for me, and that is okay. I would love to hear your thoughts on this month’s Box of Sugar! Were you disappointed or blown away?
