So the blog has taken aback seat to my procrastinating ways. I feel like I’m not making much progress but luckily you guys have been sticking with and still reading. Thank you very much! I haven’t got my newsletter sorted yet (but you can subscribe here, please don’t hold your breath until it comes…), I haven’t actually written a post in like a month but thankfully my hair is till growing strong.
I think any product that has Coconut in just has to smell good and the Cantu Coconut Curling Cream is no different.
I’ve recently started doing product reviews again in earnest after quite a substantial gap. The last one was last month, the one before that was December 2018. I’ll try my best to recall all the pertinent facts about the Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla range. I’ve been trying it over the last year and a bit. I know crazy right, who can make a product last that long? Well it’s mainly the shampoo that’s stood the test of time because we’re a co-washing household and I get distracted by other products almost constantly.
This is going to be a short one because it’s been a while since I used this product and a while since I’ve done a product review. Shame on me! Forgive me blog, it’s been 4 months since my last review. Bad blogger! Anyway to the Creme Of Nature tub we go!
I recently reviewed the EDEN BodyWorks Coconut and Shea CoWash and Masque. One of the hero ingredients is obviously Coconut Oil. And any new or old naturalista knows that for a lot of us, Coconut Oil is an essential ingredient. Now while I liked it in the EDEN BodyWorks, me and Coconut Oil have fallen out. It’s gone from Holy Grail to holy fail. Yes I did just say that!
Have you heard of EDEN BodyWorks before? The first time I remember coming across them was in a picture of Farouk James surrounded by their products. And I thought wow! If those products contributed even just 1% to how amazing his hair looks, then surely in the quest of finding my Holy Grail products, they were worth a go!
I wasn’t in the market for more skin care products or any products at all. I’m a product junkie and I’ve pretty much filled my shelf in the bathroom. And spilled onto the other shelf. And in another cupboard too. Not to mention the products that are out because I’m actually using them. They are everywhere, down the side of the sofa, on windowsills, even in the fridge. So the only thing to do would be…to buy more obviously. In steps YourGoodSkin.
I love Boots. Mostly I love collecting Boots Advantage points. I know I’m a sucker. But they do have one of the best loyalty schemes on the high street. They also stock a huge range of products, high-end, low-end, the middle ground. Everything. What they also have is a very decent own brand range of products. In fact, almost everything they sell has a Boots own equivalent. Like this Boots Essentials Cucumber skincare range. This is the value range. But with it being Boots, surely it’s still pretty good, right?
I’ll keep this short and sweet because I’m pretty much over shampoo at this point. In fact, I don’t really need it.To put this in perspective, the only reason I’m on to my second bottle of the Palmer’s Olive Oil Smoothing Shampoo is because I have gremlins in my bathroom that use my products without asking! I am naming no names…
A few days after starting the Soap & Glory product range in early July, I got ID’ed for a scratchcard…twice. I didn’t have my driving licence so I walked away from the till, embarrassed and robbed of my almost definite winning scratchcards. Needless to say I haven’t tried buying a card since but I attribute this recent change in how people view my age 100% down to this range of products…haha, not quite! But it’s quite the curious coincidence.
