The Dirty Goat: Ever Since New York Shampoo and Shave Bar

Shampoo Bars are becoming increasing popular as a way to reduce plastic, provide multi-purpose uses, and often showcase specific hair-loving/skin-loving ingredients. I am very happy to see many of my favorite small business vendors creating their own versions of shampoo bars!

The Dirty Goat makes some of my favorite products, including the Probiotic Deodorant that I am always raving about, and has branched out to Shampoo Bars! I was very excited to try her shampoo bar, and see where she takes these new inventions and creations!

Her Shampoo Bar doubles as a Shave Soap! At first, I was very confused by this. Why would my Shampoo Bar be something that I rub on my legs for shaving? Most Shampoo Bars simply do not have that kind of softness or lather to them. This one does! This is the most moisturizing and nourishing lather that I have ever felt in any kind of shampoo, bar or not! It is luxurious and moisturizing, while giving your hair and scalp a deep clean. Most Shampoo Bars leave my curly hair feeling dry, but not this one! It provides a deep clean, while nourishing my hair and scalp. My curls are left moisturized and not frizzy, which is a huge plus in my book!

Now the scent! My word, does this smell good! Ever Since New York smells of sweet blackberries, tart lemons, and butter vanilla. To my nose I smell the sweet blackberries and warm vanilla at the front, with the tart lemon underneath it all to make it more rounded and not so sweet. This scent is amazing and fills the whole bathroom when warmed in the shower. I also love that I can take my hair down at the end of my day and get a hint of blackberry, lemon and vanilla! It is the little things in life 🙂

This Shampoo Bar is huge! It is a thick, solid bar that is 3 oz of love and comes in a biodegradable, compostable wrapper because that is The Dirty Goat, and they are awesome and care for our environment!

June Empties!

Well, another month has come and gone. We are officially halfway through the year, and it feels good! I am happy with where my stash is at and the amount of products that I have used up so far! We are mostly unpacked here at our new apartment, and I have all of my bath stuff put away and lookin’ pretty 🙂 I am enjoying our new space and it feels good to make it a home. Now onto the empties!

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner: We buy these by the liter during the Ulta Liter Sale. This is my partners favorite shampoo and conditioner. He loves the way it makes his scalp tingly! I highly recommend this for anyone that is looking for a shampoo and conditioner to check this out. It really cleans the scalp and hair effectively without stripping the natural oils.

The Dirty Goat Probiotic Deodorant in Coven: The Dirty Goat makes the absolute best all-natural deodorant! She puts diatomaceous earth in her deodorant which pulls toxic metals out of your system. She also includes shea butter and probiotics to help nourish your skin. Coven is a warm, spicy scent that is perfect for winter. I will always recommend The Dirty Goat and any of her products, especially her deodorant!

Witch Baby Soap Candy Quartz Body Scrub: This was a lovely, sweet, bubblegum scent that was just delightful to use! It was a pink soft scrub that held pink iridescent shimmer and was so pretty to see on the skin! I love Witch Baby Soap scrubs! They are super moisturizing while also being a very effective scrub. I highly recommend giving any of her scrubs a try.

Shea Shea Bakery Lemon Pound Cake Body Butter: I enjoy Shea Shea Bakery Body Butter as a super moisturizing and nourishing hand cream. I do not enjoy this all over my skin. It is just too thick and moisturizing for my whole body. I will not be repurchasing this again, because I do not need to buy a product just to use it on my hands. The Lemon Pound Cake scent is amazing and I love anything lemon.

HASK Charcoal Purifying Dry Shampoo: I very much enjoyed this product and I felt like it worked well and lasted throughout the day. It smells very nice and sprays well. I always compare every Dry Shampoo to my tried and true favorite, NYM’s Dry Shampoo. I do not believe that this preformed better than NYM’s and it is more expensive. I might repurchase this if there is a sale again, because it was enjoyable to use and I did like it. What is your favorite Dry Shampoo?

The Dirty Goat Whipped Cleansing Scrub in Warhol: This has got to be one of my favorite scents that Erica has ever made! This watermelon lemonade scent is absolute perfection and smells perfectly of sweet watermelon and tart lemonade and is made for summer! Erica’s whipped cleansing scrubs are amazing! They are super thick and lather up while scrubbing away all the dead skin. I highly recommend and will continue to repurchase!

LUSH Shower Smoothie in Lush Lime: I order this from the Lush Kitchen about a year ago. The scent for this degraded fast. When I first got this product, it smelled of a sweet, tangy strawberry margarita. After a few months, it smelt of plastic and soap. My partner and I used it up, and enjoyed using it, but it did not have any amazing scent. It was very liquidy soap, that did not lather, and left a creamy moisturizing feel to the skin.

I did not have a huge month for empties, but that is to be expected with this whole move. I am sure in the coming months, I will have more empties as I get back into the swing of using my products again. I feel good with any amount of empties, as long as I feel good about the use and enjoyment I am getting out of my current rotation of products! What did everyone else use up this month? Did you guys have any favorite products in your empties this month?

May Empties

Another month, another list of empties! I really enjoy reading empties post and it encourages me to continue to “Shop My Stash” and use what I have before buying more. It is also just fun to look back on what I/you have used throughout the month! You get an honest review about a product that has been used all the way to the end, which I think it pretty valuable!

Dove Flexible Hold Hairspray: I very much enjoyed this hairspray! It smelled great, didn’t give me super sticky or crunchy hair, but had enough hold to keep my flyaways down. I would repurchase in the future, but am looking at other hairsprays to try currently.

The Dirty Goat Body Cream in Paris In The Winter: I was blown away by this body cream! It is such a lightweight body cream that absorbs super easily but is highly moisturizing! The scent Paris In The Winter is a strong perfume scent, and I believe it is a Chanel dupe. I did enjoy this scent, but it is not a scent I feel like I NEED in my life. I will definitely repurchase this body cream in the future with a different scent!

Scoopable Tart Wax in Lemon Verbena: I very much enjoyed this scent, but that should come as no surprise, it is LEMON scented! I enjoy this scoopable wax, and I would repurchase if I was not trying to solely use paraffin-free wax. I also believe that this company is no longer in business.

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Sugar Slushie in Summer Sangria: The more I use Sugar Slushies, the more I am finding that I love these products! They are such a unique product and are fun to work with in the shower. Summer Sangria is an amazing summer scent that smells of apples, peaches, and wine. It is a crispy and fruity scent! I will definitely repurchase this product in the future.

OLLY The Perfect Women’s Multi: I love these vitamins! I can really tell a difference when I am taking them regularly with my energy levels, sleep, and overall wellness. I will continue to repurchase this product and recommend this to everyone that I know!

Zoetic Flower Child Beauty Bath Booster: I very much enjoyed these bath salts! They come in such pretty packaging and I love the scent of anything lavender. I found these very relaxing and soothing. I do not think that I would repurchase, simply because it is only a one-use product and I would prefer to buy something that I can get more than one use out of.

Victoria’s Secret Noir Tease Shower Gel: I did not really enjoy this product very much. It did what it was supposed to do, but I am just spoiled by all of my small business shower products that using this was just boring. I have also had this product for several years, and I believe the scent was just going off. I would not repurchase.

Vanilla Coconut Hand Lotion: I received this big ‘ole bottle of lotion from my grandmother for Christmas two years ago, and I very much enjoyed it! I used this bottle to fill up my to-go bottle of lotion that I keep in my purse. It has a nice scent, and absorbs quickly into the skin! Overall, a very nice product.

N૦7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil: I very much enjoyed this cleansing oil! This took all of my makeup off and did not burn my eyes. It has a nice pump and you get a decent amount of product in the bottle, more than with most. It has a nice delicate smell that is not overpowering at all.

Ahhh Sugar Sugar Shower Creme in Get Blitzened: Ahhh Sugar Sugar has one of the best in-shower moisturizer formulas! At first, I did not really enjoy this scent, but after getting it in the shower I really started to enjoy it! It has a very nice eggnog and cinnamon scent that lasts nicely on the skin. I would repurchase this product and highly recommend it and this scent!

Zoetic Petal Drops Facial Oil: This is my holy grail facial oil! It is light and delicate on the skin and nicely moisturizing. One of the reasons why I love this product so much is because it does not sit heavily on my skin, but absorbs fully. I highly recommend this product and will continue to repurchase it!

Style Sexy Hair Texturizing Spray Clay: This has taken me years to finish, because I do not really have a need for texturizing sprays! I did like product, but it can be difficult to work with. It has a very powerful and direct spray, that can really clump up your hair. I would not repurchase, but it was nice and did what it was supposed to do.
