A reader had emailed me recently asking me about the body washes that I’m using. Actually, I have been using a soap from Soap Paradise mostly but on some days, I alternate with a body wash. I was using one from NutriBiotic and currently, trying out the Nature’s Baby Organics that I bought for my son. Both products were purchased from iHerb. I’ll just be upfront by stating that there is nothing outstanding about these body washes. They’re both in the natural category and the only thing worth mentioning is that they’re affordable.
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…
