EO Everyone Lotion Coconut and Lemon Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at EO Products, Drugstore.com and Amazon.
Scent: Delicious blend of lemon tart with a hint of coconut.
I like: the price, light consistency, lemony scent, and versatility.  Made with mostly natural ingredients.
Not a fan of: nothing.  This is a great moisturizer, especially for warm weather.

EO Everyone Lotion Coconut + Lemon effectively moisturizes the body and face.  The first thing I notice when using the lotion is the lovely lemony scent.  It’s what I imagine a freshly baked lemon custard and toasted coconut pie would smell like if grandma made it.  The smell is that good.  The light consistency of the lotion makes it easy to spread.  You can feel confident about using this product on your face as it absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a greasy residue.  Because the lotion is so light, you’ll want to reapply it throughout the day to keep your skin properly moisturized.  At under ten dollars for thirty-two fluid ounces, EO Everyone Lotion Coconut + Lemon is a must-try.

Scent: mild blend of mint and tea tree.
I Like: the subtle, refreshing mint and tea tree scent.
Not a fan of: the SLS and methylparaben.

Baxter of California’s Daily Protein Shampoo is a minty smelling hair wash that invigorates the senses.  The shampoo comes in a nice-looking opaque blue bottle with a convenient pump dispenser.  The refreshing scent is a mild blend of mint and tea tree – perfect for those mornings when you need an extra boost to help wake you up.  The shampoo produces a noticeable amount of lather and cleans hair very well, which makes the product better suited for those with oily hair.  Guys with fine hair may want to limit usage of this shampoo to 2-3 times a week.  Splurge on Baxter of California’s Daily Protein Shampoo if you have oily hair and some extra cash.

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Amazon, Vitacost and Drugstore.com.
Scent: Refreshing natural blend of tea tree and mint.
I like: the cool feel and natural uplifting smell of the shave cream.  The thick cream provides protection against nicks.
Not a fan of: nothing.  You can’t go wrong with this natural shave cream.

Giovanni’s Invigorating Tea Tree & Mint Moisturizing Shave Cream impressed me right off the bat with its naturally refreshing tingle.  The thick cream does not lather, but it offers effective protection against nicks and cuts.  The natural combination of peppermint, eucalyptus, and tea tree creates a wonderfully uplifting scent to help wake you up in the morning.  Nourishing ingredients including argan oil, rosehip oil, and shea butter help to moisturize while you shave.  Overall, Giovanni’s Invigorating Tea Tree & Mint Moisturizing Shave Cream is one of the better natural shave creams I have tried.  At under ten dollars, this uplifting shave cream is a great value I wouldn’t hesitate repurchasing.

Oshima Tsubaki Camellia Oil Review on Caulfield's Counter

Oshima Tsubaki Camellia Oil

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Amazon.
Scent: fragrance-free, though the oil does have a faint, naturally occurring nutty smell.
I like: the lightness of the oil.  Absorbs easily.  Versatile – can be used on skin and hair.
Not a fan of: the clear bottle.  Wished it was colored to protect the oil from light.

Asian cultures have incorporated camellia oil into their beauty routines for centuries.  The oil is known to be a light, versatile moisturizer for skin, hair, and scalp.  During a recent trip to Japan, I picked up a bottle of Oshima Tsubaki Camellia Oil to find out what all the fuss was about.  Though it is commonly marketed as a hair oil, I’ve grown to enjoy using camellia oil on my skin in the morning as an aftershave and at night before going to bed.  Camellia oil is heavier than argan oil, but light enough for people with dry skin to use on the face.  The oil has a very faint, naturally occurring nutty smell that quickly dissipates after application.  Oshima Tsubaki Camellia Oil comes in a unique, traditional-looking clear glass bottle that dispenses a few drops at a time.

Josie Maran Cosmetics 100% Pure Argan Oil Review

Josie Maran Argan Oil

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) for a half-ounce bottle – Available at Sephora and Josie Maran.
Scent: fragrance-free.
I like: how incredibly light and nourishing this moisturizer is on the skin.  Absorbs easily.
Not a fan of: the high price tag.

An increasing number of people are using argan oil as a natural skin moisturizer, and for good reason.  It’s a light, natural oil that’s incredibly nourishing.  The oil works well as a daily moisturizer.  I use it once in the morning and once at night before going to bed.  I’ve tried various brands of argan oil and Josie Maran’s Pure Argan Oil ranks highly in terms of quality and effectiveness.  It doesn’t have a funny smell and the dropper makes it easy to apply.  All it takes is 2-3 drops per application and you’re good to go for the day.  I’ll sometimes use a little more in dry weather conditions.  Josie Maran Cosmetics Argan Oil is a bit expensive, but the quality is exceptional.  A half-ounce bottle should last approximately one month.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Papaya Mango Body Cream Review on Caulfield's Counter

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Papaya Mango Body Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Drugtore.com and Amazon.com.
Scent: strong “tropical” fragrance
I Like: how light the cream is.  Effective at moisturizing and sinks in quickly.
Not a fan of: the strong synthetic tropical scent.

Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian Papaya Mango Body Cream is more like a lotion than a body butter.  Because the product came in a tub, I expected a thicker, heavier consistency.  The cream is not rich, but it is effective at moisturizing.  The product sinks very quickly into the skin.  I used it on all parts of my body, except for the face.  Some notable ingredients in the cream include shea butter, mango, cucumber, kukui oil, macadamia oil, and rosehip seed oil.  The only aspect of the product I didn’t enjoy was the strong synthetic “tropical” fragrance.
