Haul and First Impressions!!

I'm back! I've missed blogging so much but Lola needed my attention.  She is doing much better and thank you to those who sent get well wishes.

I was able to make it out to Big Carrot and Whole Foods in the last few days and purchased a bunch of things (I had gift cards + some needs).  I had specific things that I wanted to get from Big Carrot but they didn't have much of what I wanted (100% Pure products), so I was a tad bummed.  Nevertheless, I purchased others in their place.  Here's what I got from left to right and my first impression:

Sample of Weleda's new body lotion in Citrus: nice light lotion for summer but wasn't hydrating enough for my dry patches.  I'm not a fan of the citrus scent but it was much nicer than I expected.  Since it's a sample and I won't do a full review on a sample, I will say that I won't be purchasing this lotion in full size for the reasons listed above.

Pretty Ginger & Cypress Soothing Beauty Mud: I have one more use left of my old container, so of course, I had to restock my favourite mask!

Mary Ginseng House - Ginseng Facial Scrub w/ Revolutionary Soft Microdermabrasion Crystals: I'm almost out of my 100% Pure Pineapple Scrub and actually wanted to try out their carrot one BUT they were out.  I asked for recommendations and everyone raved about this product so I got it, wow!  I honestly love it so far. Feels like a little micro right at home. 

Carina Botanical Therapeutic Tree Essence Daily Moisturizing Shampoo and Body Wash: bought this because I read it was great for scalp/skin conditions.  I have cradle cap aka seborrheic dermatitis so I thought this might be good.  So far I enjoy it.  My hair gets less tangled (even driving with my windows down), scalp seems less itchy and flakey AND the smell doesn't linger (not that it smells bad anyway).

Sante Naturkosmetic Compact Powder in No. 1: shade selection sucks, has an odd smell (not bad) that doesn't linger, doesn't look cakey and the lightest shade is pretty translucent.

Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask: on sale at Whole Foods for $10! I don't eat or like pumpkin pie but it kind of smells like that, a little goes a long way, enjoyed using it for the first time.  It left my skin super soft and looking brighter.

I will definitely be posting reviews in a couple of weeks, once I actually give them a good go.

What else should I try out?  I'm currently looking for concealer and shadows but am open to suggestions on any makeup or products.


  1. You should try the Andalou enzyme mask its great. Zuzu has some nice makeup and their color selection is big. I like your blog now following
