In conjunction with the Earth Hour last Saturday, Apivita showcased one of its best-selling products, the 100% Natural Wax Candle made with pure essentials oils from its aromatherapy range. I don’t mind candles as many of them smell great but I am not that huge a fan. Well, let’s just say they don’t feature in my shopping list at all. However, I decided to accept the gift of this candle from Apivita as it is said to be able to triple-duty as a hand moisturizer and lip balm.
I was really pleased to find this big tube of Devita Solar Body Block SPF30+ at iHerb. This is far more moisturizing than the Devita Solar Protective Moisturizer SPF30+ that I reviewed in May 2011. In terms of color and texture, both sunscreens are pretty close but this Body Block doesn’t dry out my skin at all. I’m not surprised to learn that some people are even using this on their face.
I’m always up for trying out natural deodorants if they’re well reviewed and this one is, going by the raves at iHerb. But I’m wary as well because the scent that emits from the armpits is so important for social acceptance. Send the wrong smell and you’re completely done for—acceptance and reputation all down the pits! So how did the Tom’s of Maine, Natural Long Lasting Deodorant, Soothing Calendula fare for pits sake? Well, read on to find out…
I can now totally understand why a number of you like using virgin coconut oil. It’s quite an awesome oil and I wish I had discovered it earlier. For some reason, I kept thinking that the smell would be quite unbearable but turned out, this is one of the best smelling oils I’ve come across. I mean, unless you really detest coconut, there’s no way you’ll dislike the smell. Moreover, it’s a very versatile oil, being suitable for both our hair and skin. In fact, you can just about use it anywhere on your body.
