Jasmine Incense Handmade Soap

I love using handmade soap as shampoo. If you’ve never tried or even considered it, you might be interested in reading my Shampoo Bar 101. I’m running low on my preferred Shiner Bock Beer soap, so I decided to try my new Jasmine Incense soap instead. It left my hair just as soft and fluffy as the beer soap. I did use some conditioner on the ends because my hair is about to the middle of my back and I’m hoping to let it grow even longer.

Avon calling

Full disclosure: I sell Avon. I don’t spend much time on it in favor of SubEarthan Cottage, and I prefer to direct people to my Avon website rather than the traditional brochures-in-your-living-room service, but technically I do sell Avon.

Having said that, I got my personal Avon package in the mail complete with a few potentially awesome for mommies products. I thought I’d share what I got and then come back in a few days/weeks to give a personal review of the products.

Clockwise from top: Skin So Soft Signature Silk Perfecting Oil, Beyond Color Plumping Lip Conditioner, Brightening Concealer stick in Pearl, and Natural Kids Body Paint in Coconut, Cherry and Grape

First is the Skin So Soft Signature Silk Perfecting Oil. (Reg. $12. I got it on sale for $7.99) From the website, it claims to “ improve skin’s overall clarity, virtually eliminating the look of uneven skin tone.” and target “discolorations, scars, uneven tone and stretch marks.” I got it to try on my c-section scar and, you guessed it, stretch marks.

Next is the Beyond Color Plumping Lip Conditioner (intro price $4.49). It’s a new demo product, so I don’t have a page to link to for it. I purchased it because I am a lip product addict and besides, who doesn’t want to be among the first to try something. I also wanted to see if it would do a little more something for my lips without me having to wear a real lip color that results in my babies being covered in visible mommy lip prints by the end of the day. 

The Brightening Concealer Stick ($3.99) is another no-brainer for me. New baby + 4:30am feeding + 6am  wake-up + night owl mommy = puffy raccoon morning eyes. The website says it “Instantly brightens and illuminates eyes. Light-reflecting pearls help to dispel dark circles, fade away fine lines and optically airbrush imperfections. Wear alone or under foundation.” My usual makeup routine consists of moisturizer, translucent powder, something on my lips and maybe mascara. If I really can wear it alone and it’s easy to apply, it will probably become a staple in my makeup bag. I went with “Pearl” because I have fair skin most of the year and sometimes the lightest under-eye  products look too dark for me. 

Finally the Natural Kids Bath Time Body Paints ($0.59 each) are birthday gifts for Finn. I haven’t tried them recently but I remember them from when I was little. They are little roll on soap “paints” to play with in the bath. I thought they were fun so hopefully Finn will enjoy playing with them.

I’ll keep you posted on how well they all perform.
